The Life and Times of ObamaBush: Obama ups spending on nuclear weapons stockpile

Not only is Obama spending more than Bush did on nukes, but this comes just days after he said during his SOTU address that the threat of nuclear weapons is the “greatest danger” to the American people

Nobel “Peace” Prize winner Barack Obama will announce on Monday that he is allocating 4.3 billion to maintain the United States stockpile of nukes, which is $370 million more than George W. Bush spent on nuclear weapons during his final year in office.

Adding to Obama’s hypocrisy of supposedly being a representation of peace while he continues war and is now funding nukes with more cash then Bush did, is what he said Wednesday night during his first State of the Union address:

“Even as we prosecute two wars, we are also confronting perhaps the greatest danger to the American people — the threat of nuclear weapons. I have embraced the vision of John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan through a strategy that reverses the spread of these weapons, and seeks a world without them.”

And that strategy?: Spend more money on them.

Watch him say it at 1:45 into this clip

A tad difficult to live in a world without nukes if you plan on spending 4.3 billion dollars to maintain stockpiles of them, eh?

Ahhh, yes, another one of those “shining” moments in the Obama presidency that not only makes warmonger George W. Bush nod with pride and approval, but you hear not one word about on liberal blogs.
