The President on the START Treaty, currently under consideration in the Senate. The Treaty has strong bipartisan support from a long list of Democratic and Republican leaders experienced in arms control and foreign policy. The best and most thorough debunking of treaty opponents that I have seen comes from Brent Scowcroft, who thoroughly debunks opponent arguments one by one. The President has sent to the Senate a letter dealing with concerns over missile defense that have been raised. It is coming down to the wire, and the vote will be close. This treaty has been used as a political football, which is an unfortunate turn for the conduct of foreign policy. It should be passed, even if John McCain is having a temper tantrum over the repeal of DADT.
This president scares the hell out of me. Neither one of us can discuss any of the points of the treaty nor the affect on our security.
I believe the Russians will leave us to disadvantage.
Putin vs the community organizer. Not even close.
