Default Obama pushes arms treaty approval

Does it make sense that the U.S. and Russia are disarming themselves while every other tin-pot dictator and world-power wanne-be is scrambling to get nukes? Talk about your paper tigers.

Not a matter that can be delayed??????????

It would be nice if someone reminded Obama that the treaty that "cannot be delayed" was negotiated by him SEVEN F**KING MONTHS AGO!!!!!

He's had since April 8th, 2010 to have Reid bring this up for vote...He was more than happy to have it delayed while he was signing away on unemployment benefits and new financial regulations bills...

But what's that?...An election happened that handed him his own ass?...

"Well NOW it can't be delayed."...

Obama urged the Senate to approve a lame duck as soon as possible new arms-control treaty with Russia that the U.S. can not "bet can not afford to"needs, effective monitoring of the country's nuclear arsenal. "U.S. national security interests are clear, they are very high,"he said. "This is not a problem that can be postponed. "

Wouldn't it be quicker, cheaper and simpler to just hang a "KICK ME" sign on the country?

We spend more money on defense, than the entire rest of the world put together.

I don't think we're destined to turn into a 'paper tiger' anytime soon.

That's probably because we have to defend most of the world from each other.

BP, Chevron, and about 40 other corporations. Sorry, no money for taxpayers. But I bet Dick Cheney's stock portfolio is bigger too.
