Republican opposition to New START is collapsing. One Senate source just told me the vote for ratification could go as high as 75. Another said, I dont know if it will get that high, but its starting to tick up there. As the sense builds that ratification is inevitable, Republicans are lining up to get on the right side. Lamar Alexanders support, noted below, is a crucial sign of which way the wind is blowing, although hell probably be the only member of the Republican leadership to vote for it. At least Jon Kyl was able to get more money for modernization and that letter from President Obama making assurances on missile defense. Otherwise, this is a dismaying rout.
Being a GOP Senator is the simplest job in the world yet these fools just don’t get it.
If Obama is for it. Vote against it. Period. No reading, no thinking necessary.
Has white guilt really made these numbnuts willing to sabotage the USA?
We already have a third party. It's made up of the RINOS who have joined up with their soul-mates, the 'RATS to form the "No Labels Party". Proving Rush right again when he says, conservatives are going to take our party back to its roots, and it will be the RINOS who will form any third party, not us.
The Tea Party needs to form a real party. There is not much else to do in reality.
This is unforgivable, I’m done with the GOP.
All they had to do was announce that the American people had spoken in November and that they would thus filibuster EVERYTHING until the new congress that the American people elected was seated.
This is just an extension of why I became an Independent quite a while back. These gutless baby-kissers need to be cleaned out. Start in 2012.
I EXPECT democrats to vote for it. I also EXPECTED a little more pro-Americanism from the Republican side. The POSGOP can’t even muster 34 votes to stop this.
Go to hell, GOP.
We are safer withOUT the treaty than with it. It cancels our missile defense program.
Those of the men must be in Hillary's lock box... :-)
Collapse both parties and let THE PEOPLE take over!
The political class is going to get us killed! This is insane, let the revolution begin!
Yeah but I could just sit here behind my warm computer or watch dancing with stars and let the world take care of itself!!! Maybe hope for an election to save my butt.
At some point we have to just say the war is lost and let it destroy itself and pick up the pieces from the smoldering
I bloody knew they would fail.
The Founders didn’t sit around and wait and see.
That's a pretty crappy deal, considering if we had just simply done NOTHING until January we could of gotten the tax cuts and had to give up NOTHING!
The Kenyan gets handed a victory on foreign policy by a pack of RINOs... unbelievable, shocking.
Any of them up for re-election 2012? Can we primary these guys?
Staggering. Just stop and absorb this message. And our friggin' LAME DUCK Senate cowers and takes orders from the Kremlin???!!!
Russia says ‘Jump!”; the U. S. Senate says “How high?”
I don’t think he ever wanted to get the job done. He pretended a little, said he was against it himself, but let all of his usual ‘girls’ go out to their favorite streetcorners right on schedule. Wink, wink.
I agree the GOP is done. I was not saying to elect more RINOs. I was saying those who voted for this, and other crap, need to be replaced, hopefully the TeaParty will have candidates. If not, anything but what we got now works for me.
“A pox on both parties.”
Amen. They are idiots.
I hope so because this is effing frustrating!!!
