Obama tells GOP not to hold up Russia arms treaty

President Obama is pushing the GOP to pass his “START Treaty” with the Russians. {Obama tells GOP not to hold up Russia arms treaty} He made reference to a quote by Ronald Reagan to draw support for his treaty:

President Barack Obama took aim Saturday at Republican senators standing in the way of a nuclear arms reduction pact with Russia, saying they were abandoning Ronald Reagan’s lesson of nuclear diplomacy: “Trust but verify.”

The GOP says it will not vote on any other legislation until the “Bush Tax Cuts” are decided. The GOP wants to focus first on national issues which they say will help promote jobs for Americans. The “Bush Tax Cuts” will help promote small businesses which in turn will create more jobs.

Obama pulled no punches:

The president went to great length listing the prominent Republicans from previous administrations who back the deal, including former secretaries of state Colin Powell, George Shultz, Jim Baker and Henry Kissinger. He cited GOP Sen. Dick Lugar’s support, but suggested that other Republican senators were playing politics with national security.

Instead of referring to to that particular quote by Ronald Reagan, Obama should have read the rest of Reagan’s famous quotes and he would have found this quote:

In his January 1989 farewell address to the nation, President Reagan warned, “Man is not free unless government is limited. … There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”

I oppose the treaty. I have a problem with limiting our ability to make advances in missile defense while Russia is given a free hand make improvements and advancements in their missile defense program!! What nation gives up its sovereign right to defend itself? Again, Obama and his cronies are trying to tear down America, this time by stripping away our means for national defense!!
