Personally, I demand an answer from Barack Obama himself and not from some flunky staffer. Obama made the statements, not his staff. So far, I have only found three others blogging on this subject and they are listed in the articles linked above. Upon further discovery, there is one other called Cryptic Subterranean, and they list two others. Including us at A Newt One, that makes a total of six. Not enough. Now, when the limp minded blindly swallow that which Obama screeches on about, it is any wonder no one calls him on his crappola? For instance, there is one blogger that has opined about and agrees with Obama when it comes to "private armies". I didn't see anything over there about Obama's Private Army. Go figure. Appropriately so, the blog is called The Inside Dope. No doubt. (Since the poor thing hasn't a tenth of our traffic, I decided to send that one a bone.)
Now, granted, back in December of 2007, Fox News did run a piece on Barack's plan to expand AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps but there was no mention of bringing them to an equal par of the United States Military as he stated in the AARP piece. Simply amazing. He utilizes incremental posturing as he underwhelms Patriots like myself and overwhelms sycophants of the Leftinistra.
Real Clear Politics also wrote of the AmeriCorps and Peace Corps expansion back in March of 2008 but again, no mention of the $500B budget and like-military training.
Other posts here, here, and here also speak of the expansion but nothing of the militaristic version of the expansion, the last one listed being approximately 10 days before the verbiage that peeked my interest.
In my constant quest for Truth in this matter, I find it painfully obvious that no one is paying attention to this Obama Youth mantra. Let me throw his quote out there for you...
[...] Obama promised to increase AmeriCorps slots from 75,000 to 250,000 and pledged to double the size of the Peace Corps by 2011. [...]What is so damned puzzling is that the AARP is dated the same as all the other recent 02 JUL 08 articles in the Lame Stream but not ONE of them mentioned the "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded" statement. All they say is that Obama is calling for more community service. Since when are community service folks trained, equipped and budgeted as the US Armed Forces?
"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," he said Wednesday. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." [...]
What gives with that?
