    is he eliminating that budget and then looking into alternative tech to detect nukes at our borders, or is he scrapping anything that helps us to detect nukes?

    new funding? Im not sure i am upset over that unless there is some major disaster that would happen by opposing it. What's wrong with using existing funding and existing equipment?

    IMO: Obama would make us a 3rd world nation anyway. There will be no need for such protection, for we won't be a threat to anyone so we would not be attacked with such weapons.

    IMO: He is killing the nation, and then he will go back to wherever he was born and create a massive government to control us. He is a traitor. IMO

    Thank God for Obama.

    He has saved America from Dick Cheney and George Bush.

    By doing the very same things George Bush and Dick Cheney did...

    Remember, Bush spent five times more than Clinton, and that's why we're in a recession.

    Spending five times more than Bush won't correct it, genius. :cuckoo::cuckoo:

    Come on, he's just leveling the playing field.

    Those terorists have to be given a chance to nuke a city, otherwise it's not 'fair.'
