Rebellion Roundup #1 — Obama to Dismantle National Defense

Today, we rediscovered an old but still jaw-dropping video of the Democratic Party’s presumptive selectee describing how he will disarm America by dismantling our national defense systems:


“I’m the only major candidate who opposed 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.

“I will institute an independent defense priorities board to ensure that the Quadrennial Review is not used to justify unnecessary defense spending.

“Third, I will set a goal for 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 fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenal.”


After listening to this frightening diatribe detailing Obama’s abominable plan to leave America vulnerable to attack, one can’t help but wonder: have the superdelegates lost their effing minds in selecting a radical leftist to represent their views? Do they care at all about the Democratic Party? About the Nation? Do they really think those centrist and moderate Democrats and independents who actually love this country and want a commander-in-chief who can be entrusted to protect and defend it will unify behind Obama’s arrogance and inexperience?

If the McCain campaign and the GOP have any sense at all, they would immediately begin crafting a national ad campaign around Obama’s complete lack of national security competence. McCain and his surrogates should be hammering Obama’s anti-defense policy and contrasting it on a daily basis with McCain’s own known experience and heroism. Americans don’t want, don’t need, and can’t afford a President with an expressed plan to gut national defense.



We start as always with the grand poobah of sensible commentary for swingcrats, Savage Politics, who eulogizes Hillary’s campaign by lamenting the Democratic Party’s sudden tolerance of “racism, gender bias, character assassination, mass media propaganda and just plain, old fashioned mean spiritedness and greed” and characterizes her bid as a lost opportunity to elect “the most qualified candidate to lead our country.”

The article’s author goes on to denounce Obama’s twenty year indoctrination in “inflammatory rhetoric shouted from the rooftops by his own racist Ministers who uphold the tenets of Black Liberation Theology” and ominously warns voters to expect from these false prophets “the same influence in an Obama administration that the extreme Evangelical movement had during the reign of terror known as the GWB administration.”

Will the country go from Dubya’s reign of terror to Obambi’s reign of error?

Over at Liberal Rapture, which is run by a recovering Obamaholic, Lynne writes about her “Heart of Darkness,” mocking the last conspiracy theory roiling Obamaland: that anti-Obama Democrats are a GOP plot.

Mwahahahaa. No, kids, they’re just sensible centrists who don’t want a left-wing Bush or second term of Jimmy Carter, as McCain helpfully reminded us.

No Quarter USA throws more cold water on the media spin about Hillary’s concession speech, as a contributor who was in attendance weighs in:

“Let us share with you the things the media didn’t/won’t convey…

-The BHO supporters were in full throttle and exuberantly applauded at every chance for him…[to] down play any angst her supporters were feeling…

-Obviously overtaken with emotions of the occasion, Dorothy Rodham (Senator Clinton’s mother) and Bill Clinton wept

– BHO not only did not watch the event, a true show of disregard…later ‘claimed’ to have watched it on the Internet.

– HRC Supporters reactions varied from bewilderment, sadness, resolve, disappointment and anger…mood afterwards was most a feeling of the aftermath of a funeral…”

And here I thought all that clapping was for unity.

Anglachel’s Journal disputes the notion that the many Democrats still rejecting Obama do so from sour grapes over Hillary’s loss, and instead submits that Obama and the DNC have brought this war upon themselves:

“Here’s a little secret. If Obama has run an aboveboard campaign, if the Democratic Party leadership hauled off and slapped Chris Matthews et. al. silly for their Clinton Derangement Syndrome…he would be poised to put together a Unity ticket…her supporters would, after the usual grumbling, have willingly thrown full support behind the ticket.”

Over at the McCain website, campaign manger Rick Davis has put together an optimistic and thought-provoking strategy briefing for online presentation. Once you get over Rick’s lovely accent, it’s interesting to note that Obama’s supposed money advantage over McCain is grossly overstated: taking into account that the RNC’s fundraising has far outpaced that of the DNC, McCain and the GOP is currently better-positioned financially.

But don’t tell that to the prObama corporate media.

McCain Democrats reminds moderates of Obama’s very extreme record on abortion, including his opposition to “a bill that was very much like the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act that prevents the killing of infants that have been left alive by abortion.”

If that doesn’t shore up Evangelical support for McCain, I don’t know what will.

Obama WTF questions the effectiveness of Obama’s strategy of winning over working class Democrats “by calling them old, racist, and dumb.”

In Obama’s defense, if Hillary had won she’d have had just as much trouble winning over his young, racist, and dumb supporters in our cities and colleges.

PUMA (The Confluence) is right on top of yet another Obama lie: his head-spinning claim that Jim Johnson, his veep vetter, doesn’t actually work for him. This lie comes as Obama is under scrutiny for hiring Johnson. Not to be outdone, Rezko Watch notes that Obama, just now realizing his “friendly” relationship with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers might cost him the White House, has begun a “strategic retreat.” Looks like Ayers and Johnson will soon go the way of all the other Obama advisors and associates now stuck underneath the Obama bus.

Gracious, must be getting really crowded down there.

Stop-Obama weighs in with the intriguing theory that Obama and the DNC, having realized that the presumptive selectee’s left-wing designs for America won’t sell in general election voting booths, plans to co-opt Hillary’s more electable platform and vision and repackage it “under the ‘Obama’ brand” in order to avoid losing.

Hmmm…could that be how they got Hillary to offer such an effortless endorsement of the inadequate male?

In casting the general election as “Americans vs. Anti Americans,” the disaffected conservatives over at The Patriot Room seem pleasantly surprised that “Hillary Democrats seem to be taking a serious, principled stand in opposing Obama. It is not that they like McCain. They just think Obama would be very bad for America.” They go on to note that the unfortunate selection of Obama “seems to have awakened the patriotic Democrats who actually love their country” and invites them to “join American Republicans in opposing Obama’s anti-American, racist, arrogant bid” for control.

I guess a vast left-wing conspiracy makes for strange bedfellows.

The great Tom In Paine, echoing Sen. Feinstein’s claim that Hillary won the popular vote, slams the Democratic leadership for creating a “hornets nest” of angry Democrats and suggests that the unity-mongers at the DNC are in for a general election shock:

“Clinton’s 19 million voters are not politicians.They wont say one thing and do another. If 50% – 80% of them say they won’t vote for Obama they wont vote for Obama…there are going to be mass defections from the Democratic party and its not going to be as Clyburn or Obama may try and make it appear, over race. Its going to be because of a spectacularly unqualifed candidate…”

But, Tom, didn’t you hear? They’re rejecting Obama because they’re angry and spiteful. They’ll come around by November. Abortion, Supreme Court, 100 years in Iraq, unity, Sebelius. There, that should do it.

Uppity Insulted Democrat expresses her disgust that Obama supporters online are posing as a grieving military mom in order to woo Democrats over to Obama. Reclusive Leftist is also outraged but more by the Obama camp’s use of such a transparent, lazy ploy.

Fake online military parents (Obamatrons), 0. Real parent with kids in Iraq (John McCain), 1.

HRC all-star blogger HillBuzz is disturbed by the revoltingly misogynistic editorial cartoon imagery documenting the end of Hillary’s campaign and concludes of Obama supporters’ ungracious behavior that “none of these fools see the crash coming, when on election day they’ll realize that all that bullying and berating they did for almost two years accomplished one, and only one thing: it elected John McCain…”

Don’t get angry, vote angry.

Hire Heels notes the undeniable power of Hillary’s constituency, a phenomenon explored also by the New York Times, and urges them to use it wisely. Sugar N Spice, though going way overboard in its nutty comparison of Obama to Hitler, is more sensible when suggesting how to deploy this power:

“Be wary voters. Be very wary. Don’t be fooled into believing John McCain would be a ‘third Bush term.’ That’s bullshit and the Obamathugs know it…This was a concerted mishandling and abuse of democratic power and we all need to be mindful of this as we head to the polls in November.”

Well, we agree with that part anyway.

Onward, forward, no white flags!



  1. so you’re for wasteful spending and nuclear proliferation??

    Even Reagan wanted to reduce nukes.

    and Sherrip.. when McCain gets elected and the war gets expanded to include Iran. I will be thinking of you.

    It’s amazing.. when you look at Obama and Clinton’s agendas…they’re not that different. Yet because of spite so many are willing to turn their backs on their own principles to vote for a man who backed Bush’s policies 95% of the time.

    You obviously aren’t Democrats.. you’re Clintoncrats who are voting for a single person instead of a set of ideas and beliefs.

    Amazing. You claim we aren’t Democrats while comparing Obama’s policies to Reagan. This is what passes for logic in Obamaland. Most Democrats do not believe Reagan’s policies were good for America.

    I have news for you: Iran is already in Iraq. Obama has no Iraq plan, and he plans to meet Iran with no preconditions. Both of which embolden the country. He has no national security credentials and cannot be trusted to properly manage the war.

    Obama and Clinton’s agendas are quite different on energy policy, Iraq, and health care among other things. More importantly, Obama is unqualified and has poor judgment and character which are important in a President.

    The more time you waste dreaming that this is out of spite, the less time you spend addressing Obama’s many deficiencies. Which is fine by me; you’re only hurting your own cause.

    We will not vote for a left-wing Bush in the form of Obama. No place for arrogance and inexperience in the White House. And we don’t need a bunch of left-wing new voters and rich hippies telling us how to be Democrats.

    You can see the section of this website titled “Need Reasons?” for a list of ideological and policy differences with Obama and “Manifesto” for a clear-eyed rejection of his candidacy.

    Thank you for your comment,


  2. It is nice to see so many sites for we Formercrats. Its actually quite liberating to know that I am not alone. I will be thinking of all you when I vote for John McCain in November. I will also be thinking of Dean, Pelosi and Reid. I hope they will be thinking of us too!

  3. Hi Denise and iamOnly1 – I’m also hoping that a ‘miracle’ happens in Denver. Keeping my fingers crossed, it’s a coping thing I guess. Glad to have stumbled upon this site as well as others nice to not be going through this alone. It is very sobering to contemplate what could happen this election and the possible unintended consequences.

  4. Hi Denise,

    It’s good to have you. I too hope “Divine Intervention” occurs in Denver.

    Thanks so much for visiting, and please come back often. We all need to stick together and fight as one.

  5. This site was referenced over at, where I spend quite a bit of my free time:) So glad to have found your own site – now I can happily visit both, knowing I am NOT in the minority and actually in very good company. My vote, by the way, is for McCain, unless Divine Intervention occurs in late August in Denver with regard to Hillary. Otherwise, four years isn’t that long to wait – at least if McCain is in the White House. Otherwise, …well, I don’t even want to contemplate the alternative.
