    Dead on delivery - The Week

    The Republicans will once again put Obama hatred and desire to prevent any accomplishments from doing what is best for the American people

    Despite the near-universal support for the treaty from the military, most arms control experts, and most pre-George W. Bush former national security officials, it has become an article of faith in Republican ranks that the treaty weakens America’s nuclear deterrent and limits missile defense in Europe. Neither of these claims is remotely true, but that has not stopped leading figures in the conservative movement from making the acceptance of these claims into the first post-election litmus test.

    The mood of the GOP at the moment is such that any bipartisan agreement, no matter how sensible, has zero chance of picking up more than a handful of votes. After this year’s primary season that saw the defeats of two sitting Senators, every incumbent Republican will be wary of appearing too accommodating with the administration, and newly-elected members will be eager to establish themselves as harsh critics of administration decisions.

    When Obama and the Dems ran everything, there were no wars, we had no enemies, everyone loved us!

    i've totally thought that we were slipping back to cold war. look at chavez and ahmadinajad circling around together. putin in russia, iran giving karzai money (he's a double dealing sac of shit), china, north korea, what's different except the control of the nukes? it's not a great situation

    Actually it is Obama who is reviving the Cold War with this stupid pointless treaty. Yes, let the GOP vote the fucker down. Let it declare Dead On Arrival any treaty that limits the U.S.

    1. how does this treaty benefit the us?

    2. how does not passing it bring back the cold war? the cold war ended without the treaty....seems dumb to claim that without a treaty now....the cold war will come back....

    It may seem dumb but a new cold war is looming.

    fortunately you are always wrong. And Reagan would kick your ass if he was still alive.

    We should weaken ourselves because our enemies may not like us if we do not? Pretty stupid plan in my opinion.

    RW this treaty will guarantee that Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-il, Putin, etc... will become great world citizens, stop all nuclear armament, agree to defeat all Islamic Extremism, stabilize Afghanistan / Pakistan / India and end the senseless extermination of innocent people around the world.....

    When this can be accomplished, maybe, and I mean maybe, the Conservative Movement will consider thinking about it, until then, hell will have to freeze over first, just saying.....
