wall street journal ^ | 12/20/2010 | ap

One of the Senate's top Democrats is predicting the chamber will approve a new nuclear arms control treaty with Russia, despite Republican opposition to what is one of President Barack Obama's top foreign policy goals.

New York Sen. Charles Schumer says Democrats have now picked up the support of GOP Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi, and he said he believes Democrats can get the 67 votes the Constitution requires to ratify a treaty.

Nothing. Like trailer trash, these RINOs simply like the attention they get from slutting themselves out and being asked out on a date!

Sounds like RevAl is talking about himself as a racist being allowed to put his biased views over the airwaves. He is one of the most racist, inflamatory individuals I have ever heard on the radio or TV, and his right of free speech has crossed the line and should be curtailed.

What do you think the libs can say other then they have the votes? They had the votes for the increase of taxes on the rich and to pass the DREAM Act, close GITMO as well as the omnibus bill, right up until they didn’t have them.

It’s all posturing and this reporter (AP, so it’s already questionable)knows only what he was told to get into print by one of his Lefty pals in the Party.

Senator Cocran,

It is very disappointing to hear that you will be voting yea with the Democrats to pass the New Start treaty. You don’t get it yet, do you? What have the Democrats promised you for your yea vote? This treaty is not in the best interests of the U.S. and is an attempt to disarm the U.S. completely and makes no strategic sense.

There is absolutely no reason to have this treaty fast tracked through the Senate at this time. It can wait until the next congress; there is no need to rush to a vote on this now. Ask yourself why Sen. Reid is courting you for this vote.

Why don’t you just come home to Mississippi and forget this vote. We loyal Mississippians and Americans will bring you back home to Mississippi with our vote if you vote yea on this.

As a Marine Corps Veteran I did not fight for this country for you to give it away with your support of this Treaty.

******** ********

Actually, 58 dems w/indies... but they'll probably get at least 11 GOPers -- the same 8 whores who voted to lift DADT, plus Lugar (IN), Corker (TN) and Cochran (MS).

BTW, none of those proponents of the START has made a salable case as to why this is good for America.

My prediction: With these 69, along with the requisite 2+ hopping on the bandwagon, START passage gets 71+ votes.

Why is Mitch McConnell still the senate leader for the GOP ?

IF 67 votes are needed

Not to get technical, but it's not 67 votes. It's 2/3 of the Senators present and voting.

I said in another thread, I have more respect (but not much more) for murderers, rapists and pedophiles than I do for the Congress, especially the Senate, right now. At least with the former, they are in jail, or will be when caught and convicted. I like Mark Twain's idea, limit them to two terms, one in Coingress, one in jail.
