The START treaty is being pushed through the Senate before the Christmas recess. Why? Why are they so afraid to wait until the new members come in? The administration keeps saying it’s a good treaty..
It’s not. It would restrict America’s ability to put up missile defense systems. Now with the Soviets (yes, I know it’s called Russia, but a rose by any other name…..) saying that we can’t change the treaty….excuse me? They are telling us what to do? This should red-flag the whole process immediately. But, this administration is a bunch of wimps so they won’t do a damn thing. Considering Obama is bowing to every leader on earth, I’m surprised he doesn’t allow Putin to come over and rally for it in Congress.
The Senate Republicans who are voting for it:Voinovich, Bennett, Snowe, Collins, Lugar, Brown (MA) (what a disappointment this guy turned out to be), with the possibility of Judd Gregg from New Hampshire being added to the list today are all RINOS.
Judd Gregg, in his last 2 years in office has done nothing but give the finger to the people of New Hampshire. I’m glad to see him go.
When you see these warning signs, maybe someone would get the message..
Apparently not.. Another nail in the coffin of our national security..
The Senate just ratified START. Defecting to the other side were Republicans Lugar (IN), Alexander (TN), Bennett (UT), Brown (MA), Cochran (MISS), Collins and Snowe (ME), Corker (TN), Isakson (GA), Murkowski (AK), Voinovich (OH), Johanns (NB) and Gregg (NH) (good riddance to him).
In his press conference Obama said this was a major treaty that would allow our inspectors back on the ground in Russia to inspect facilities. Is he kidding? The Russians are already hiding the warheads where we will never find them. You can do things like that in Siberia very easily.
Somewhere, in snowy Moscow or in the country at his dacha, Vladimir Putin is laughing and pouring another shot of vodka…And Medvedev just does what his boss does….
