This was just aired on CBS Sunday Morning, and true to form Stein goes over the deep end. Why he's still placed in regular commentary, and especially on a Sunday morning, is beyond me.
He's once again bringing us king ronnies so peaceful? policy legacy. Wonder why he now rarely speaks about reagan free market capitalism?
Ronald Reagan was totally right when he said he wanted a ballistic missile defense system comprehensive enough to protect the U.S. from ICBM attacks. His liberal opponents scoffed and called it "Star Wars," and said it couldn't possibly work. They blocked money for its deployment on any scale. Nevertheless, in tests, it worked well.
Atta boy Stein, the drum beating hawk: "
"Why, if the challenge is real enough for Mr. Obama to beef up the limited defense systems we have, don't we spend every dime we can beg, borrow, or steal to defend ourselves against nuclear rocket attacks from people who hate us?"
You all haven't paid a dime, especially the ones with all the wealth and made more off their investments in, I'll bet you made a bundle yourself, for our two recent wars of choice! Quickly abandoning the missions and promises to the people of why we sent our military into that region!
"If military action is worth our troops' blood, it should be worth our treasure, too; not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific ante by every American." -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013
And then you ask this:
"What more urgent priority do we have?"
But more importantly not one dime, rubber stamping and thus rapid deficit rising started Before 9/11, for the long term results of both, DeJa-Vu all over again as you all attack the Veterans Administration!! Added to the previous decades and wars of while ignoring what those who served in came back with.
“Why in 2009 were we still using paper?” VA Assistant Secretary Tommy Sowers “When we came in, there was no plan to change that; we’ve been operating on a six month wait for over a decade.” 27 March 2013
Not to mention all the rest dumped into these recent past years by the leadership you all supported but rarely mention now, even as to those still in congress from those times and the newer even more extreme ideologues hired.
So now you've started the other drums a beating, not satisfied with the ones that have been and were created by our recent let alone long term policies!!!
Why do countries like Iran and Korea want Nukes. Couldn't be that it's because we have them and that aforementioned never to be spoken of once recent president broke all the tables as to talks of ridding the world of the danger of having so many. With the present administration trying to once again rebuild those tables and stronger. Nor that same, never to be mentioned along with their policies, heavily used depleted uranium tipped ordinance and sought research into small nukes to use in our wars of choice, all while continuing the long time threatening, with help from the constant hate rhetoric from hawks like you, of these two small countries and others.
You must be taking a huge hit on those wall street investments, all that wealth and nothing to do with it, by not having easy gained from investments money from the huge defense projects and one war ended with the other winding down. So you bring up the Dear Leader ronny, and so close to the passing of his soulmate in most everything Thatcher, and start them drums a beatin to rile up that herd, excuse me base, with another issue to toss against the wall to see if it'll stick. I expect the FOX will be talking this in the coming week, 'mission accomplished', as the never to be named again once said!
