I wanted to vote for McCain in 2000
That puts us in the same camp.He has set himself down on the other side of two many key issues for me to support him anymore though.
Like what?Can anyone tell me what would happen if someone managed to throttle out a rootname server... Can anyone tell me what would happen in any of the above scenarios if presented to a president that doesn't even know how to run a computer and thinks Dick Cheney would be a "Great Advisor"?
I can, because its happened before. 7 (or 9) of the 13 were DDoS'd out of service. Essentially, nobody noticed. I don't think anyone asked the President for his advice in that great hour of need.
All those sites would have to go down for a significantly longer period of time before it would be a substantial problem, because of the tiered nature of DNS. And I'd be surprised if a majority of the most highly critical internet transactions that happen routinely rely on public DNS at all. Sure, maybe nobody'll be able to reach Target.com for a few hours, but that's not really in my top 10 of national security threats.Can anyone tell me what the Department of Justice's options are that get presented to the President in the case of such an attack?
I hope not. If someone on MilesCity.com knows the answer, I'd say it's way too widely known to help anyone.out of frustration due to the lack of care of the highest placed people
They have a word for this.... it's called government.
I think this is just another in a long list of "Justification by Faith" issues you take up on Obama's behalf, J. The Presidency is a CEO position, not a CIO one. The CEOs of HP and Intel have degrees in Business Administration. The CEO of IBM has a degree in History. If the most successfuly tech companies in the world don't see the need for techie leadership, I can't really see your argument.
And it seems an especially strange argument considering that at the same time, you're proposing putting the most powerful fighting force on the planet, during a war, under a complete n00b as Commander in Chief (an actual Constitutional role). vs an Annapolis educated and decorated war hero no less.
In short, you're taking the "experience" angle from an intentionally narrow viewpoint, just to advocate for your guy. If the best "experience" example you can find is Obama being able to run Windows XP, then I'd say there's not much "there" there.
Besides, as soon as Showbama learns the basics of securing his own domain name spaces, maybe he'll be able to offer some advice to NSA.http://my.barackobama.org/http://fightthesmears.org/
