57 Percent Favor Military Response to North Korea: How Many Voted for Obama?
By John W. Lillpop
A day after North Korea fired a missile/rocket/satellite over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean, a new poll indicates that a solid majority of Americans believe that Kim Jong Il should be subjected to a military response from America.
As reported by Don Surber at dailymail.com, in part:
"Most Americans think Kim Jong-Il needs a little cruise missile diplomacy.
While leftists scoffed last fall when at Gov. Sarah Palin said some of her constituents can see Russia from their yards — they can — North Korea quietly was building a rocket that can reach Alaska — or Hawaii.
And it has.
In response, we got a bunch of jaw from President Obama, who wants to replace the Department of Defense with the Department of Eloquence.
'We will immediately consult with our allies in the region, including Japan and the Republic of Korea, and members of the U.N. Security Council to bring this matter before the Council. I urge North Korea to abide fully by the resolutions of the U.N. Security Council and to refrain from further provocative actions,' Obama said in a written statement.
Apparently, even TOTUS would not put that bunk on his screen so the Reader in Chief could go before the cameras.
Rasmussen asked people what they think: 57% say a military response is in order."
From the referenced Rasmussen report, in part:
"Fifty-seven percent (57%) of U.S. voters nationwide favor a military response to eliminate North Korea’s missile launching capability. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 15% of voters oppose a military response while 28% are not sure."
Of course, one poll does not undo a national election.
But this one indicates that a sizable segment of the American population is not yet addicted to Obama's wuss Kool-aid when it comes to national defense. And that is a good thing!
