Skip to comments.Reid Files for Cloture on START (Corker of Tennessee (R) working w/ Hussein Cult in Senate)
Posted on 12/20/2010 12:56:00 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat
On Sunday night, after a weekend of wrangling, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) filed for cloture on the New START treaty, setting up a crucial Tuesday vote on whether to end debate. A final vote could come on Thursday. As Josh Rogin observes, keep an eye on Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) as the clock ticks...

...and, just like a year ago with Hussein’s DEATH PANELS bill, notice how Reid is doing this: at Christmastime, in the middle of the night, when the public is distracted.
Demon-rats: they’ll eat your face off while you sleep.
Any other FReepers using twitter do the same.
My fingers are worn to nubs from all the emails and phone calls to Corker. He has really turned out to be a disgrace to TN.
How do you not go off into a panic induced rant. lol
no START. not now. not ever.
These people are lower than whale excrement.
I am one of the 300 at Thermopylae.
I know I'll die. Perhaps, Greece may live.
It’s like a race to shove as much down our throats as they can. Lame duck, my azzz.....Can ANY of the damage possibly be un-done?
They passed the “food safety bill” last night, too.
Not news to us in TN...
I never voted for RINO Bob...
I pray McConnell and his voiced opposition to START is signal
to enough others in the Senate. Whatever the result—even if it does get pushed back — I am not convinced that the braying Jacks and Jennies —the Socialists— and the Rino who help them have changed.And the Republicans will do as they have as well— and rely on the fact that their excuse is we the people have not elected enough Republicans.Why I wish we had heeded the advice of wiser men who said a Party system would destroy American government.
WASHINGTON U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, made the following statement today regarding commitments to missile defense and the New START treaty (New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) with Russia. Attached is the letter President Obama sent to Republican Senators today stating his commitment to missile defense.
“I appreciate the letter we received today from the President, as requested, stating his commitment to missile defense,” said U.S. Senator Bob Corker. “Even though the McCain amendment failed, over the next several days we will be looking for ways to reiterate our strong position on missile defense as it relates to this treaty.”
Corker has to be the dumbest Senator ever. The Missile Defense clause is in the treaty and unless it's amended it will always be a part of the treaty regardless whether Obama writes a letter or not.
This has been a done deal since the tax cut extension compromise along with DADT and the Dream Act.
It takes 67 votes to ratify a treaty.
But the dems always have the three sisters, Collins, Snowe, and Brown.
And his opponent was a real conservative...a good man!
Yes - till my fingers bleed!
Many FReepers warned us of this turncoat bastard... but it was him or someone like charlie rangel or pelosi. We need a TEA PARTY primary candidate to retire this _______! (you fill in the blank)
National Security used to be taken seriously, now Just another frivolous compromise with poor Democrat legislation...
don't forget little sis.
Meanwhile, at the Cotillion
as God is my witness, I'll never vote conservative again!!
