Obama on his desire for a civilian national security force

Donald B. Hawthorne

Obama calls for a civilian national security force.

Questions for Obama.

Given the intimidation and threats we have seen from Obama supporters against those who oppose the One, don't you wonder if people like Stanley Kurtz and Joe the Plumber are feeling as free today at the thought of this CNSF?


Check out my comments about this on Justin's post"A New America"below.I don't feel like writing it again.

Why is this necessary?

The annual defense budget is approx $475b. So that will that be the budget for this security force?

Where does he propose to find the revenue? By cutting funding to the existing military? If not, what will he cut? Or is he planning to raise taxes once again on that luckless 5% of the population?

Is anyone doing a running tally of the price tags of all of his initiatives? If so, how many commas does the total currently have?

Monique, nice to see that you are finally concerned about the federal deficit! And I thought you had just overlooked the Clinton surplus morphing into the Bush deficit.
