Obama's "Civilian Security Force" Explained (?)

The fact remains that when The O-and-Savior is off-script, he blunders--sometimes seriously.

But not to fear. Folkbum 'splains it all for you, quoting The O himself.

...we still have a national security apparatus on the civilian side in the way the State Department is structured and [Agency for International Development] and all these various agencies. That hearkens back to the Cold War. And we need that wing of our national security apparatus to carry its weight.

Sure. That's the ticket!!

The "Civilian Security Forces" are actually State, AID, and possibly the Peace Corps.

Perhaps a few of you out there have better or longer memories than I do--but I cannot recall, EVER, using the term "security force" as a descriptor of State or AID.


There's a reason for that, too. Diplomats and social workers usually don't carry arms.

Nice try, Jay. Like I said in your combox, I'm perfectly happy to grant you that The O-and-Savior is a complete moron when he's off-script.

But go ahead and vote him into the Presidency. Maybe then he will actually say what he means.

Constitutional "Civilian Security Force" defined:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Perhaps Obama took Heller seriously.

That's funny right there, I don't care who you are.

I wonder what the Obama blueshirt version of the Horst Wessel Song will be?
