Senator Obama. The You Tube video removed from his web site. He is no Ronald Reagan

As I drove to Santa Ana to attend a fund raiser for Juice blog founder Art Pedroza, candidate for Santa Ana city council, I heard Tammy Bruce on KABC radio speaking to a caller regarding a You Tube clip that was removed from Senator Obama’s web site. She reports that it has also been removed from You Tube. Before going off the air Tammy had staff locate said video and has now posted it on the home page of her web site.

In this short video you can see and hear Senator “Obama pledging to disarm us during a time of war. This is from just last year. His gang has been trying to get it buried, but we found another copy. Please let me know if this link gets killed.” Tammy Bruce.

Juice readers. After playing the video several times, I have attempted to transcribe, verbatim, the senator and could not keep up with every word. However, in addition to watching it yourself, the following is very close to the exact text.

Before providing same I must remind readers of president Ronald Reagan whose foreign policy was successful due to his acknowledging the top priority of any government. Be it your local city council to the president residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, they each have a sworn duty is to protect our “public safety.”

We do not need another global leader such as former U.K. P.M. Neville Chamberlain who almost surrendered the U.K. and western Europe to Adolph Hitler in W.W. II by his policy of “appeasement.”

We won the Cold War with Russia due in great part to our following the wisdom of Barry Goldwater who was quoted by president Reagan saying we can protect our nation by adhering to a policy of “peace through strength.”

Senator Obama stresses three points in the one minute video.

“First. I’m the only major candidate to oppose this war from the beginning ..and as president I will end it.

Second. I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.  I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.
I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems and..I will institute an independent suspense? priority force to assure that the quadrennial? review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.

Third. I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal I will not develop nuclear weapons.  I will seek a global ban on the production? of nuclear material and…I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBM’s off hair trigger alert and to achieve these cuts in our nuclear arsenal.”

Gilbert note. As to Obama’s second point.  Having worked in military and space programs I guess the senator never heard of “skunk works” where engineers work in research and development. There is no “guarantee” that every system being developed will be successful.  The same applies as we seek cures for various forms of cancer.

He will “slow development of future combat systems.” This statement reminds me of the cartoon where a salesman is sitting in a lobby waiting to meet with a buyer. The potential customer’s firm is fighting a war with bows and arrows while the salesman, who sells machine guns, cools his heels, waiting to meet the decision maker.

And to his point number three. Talk about someone being naive. We will discard our protection and cross our fingers as we negotiate with the KGB.

No wonder he has dropped this You Tube video!
