Posted on 12/15/2010 4:20:59 PM PST by stockpirate
Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., backed off threats today to force a reading of the New START arms-reduction treaty after the White House assailed the delay tactic as a new low.
Senate leaders had estimated that a full reading of the accord could take 15 hours, which would have thrown a wrench into ambitious plans to finish work on New START, an omnibus spending bill, and several other pieces of legislation before the Senate adjourns for the year.

Rupbulicans are giving all they can to assist the democrats in driving the final nails in to our freedoms.
Sure doesn’t take big talkers long to cave, does it. Call them a name or say it’s a “new” low and they go into hiding. Guess they don’t want to be remembered as the ones who created a “new” low.
Second party, anyone? We only have one now.
Oh Noes! They would have to delay a vote 15 hours to hear what’s in the bill!
Why does DeMeint care what the WH thinks.
Willing to bet he got his price paid. Wonder what it was?
¨...a new low....¨
So what? Why is DeMint caving on this?
Maybe DeMint has more than 34 against it. Let us hope so. This is a terrible treaty. Why would he cave so fast?
Our forefathers weep.
Is there not one out of 100 who will stop this train wreck?
One out of 535?
Sen. McCaskill was right—it is time for pitchforks.
They are all socialists, we are under tyranny now, God help us all.
Prolly a don't don't tell deal. Don't ask, 'cause he ain't telling.
They're all whores.
maybe a bj from Ob
Et tu Jim?....sigh. I though you had more than that, what a dissapointment.
This guy is a real a-hole who lacks the courage of his convictions. How many times is DeMint and our “other” leaders going to threaten to stick up for us before we stop buying their BS.
I can’t believe that some here would support this guy for President over a very qualified candidate who keeps her word and is out there fighting for the American people every day.
Maybe they have photos of DeMint and Graham in some quesionable poses.
DeMint supported Graham in his last primary....so maybe DeMint is not the leader we think he is
Exactly. Sarah talks the talk, AND walks the walk, against a lot more pressure than this.
They should change their first names to "Neal" and "Bob".
The only Republican with any testicular fortitude is Sarah Palin.
The rest are a bunch of geldings.
And to think South Carolina actually used to produced people that used to stand up to the feds.
Now we got Mr. Cave-O-Matic and Senatard Priss.
