President Lieberman doesn't like our nuke treaty with the Russians, and he's afraid Obama may just have to scrap the whole thing and start over.
Anytime we are working on something with our old Cold War enemy, Russia, cooperatively, it’s a good sign. Anything we can do to reduce the number of nuclear warheads in the world is a positive development. But in my opinion as we reduce the number of nuclear warheads… we have to make darn sure that are nuclear warheads are capable and modern and a lot of them are decades old. So I feel very strongly that I am going to be real hesitant to vote for this treaty unless we have a commitment from the Administration that they are prepared to modernize our nuclear stockpile.
In other words, we can't reduce our nuclear weapons stockpile unless we make more advanced nuclear weapons.  Ergo, President Joe here just can't bring himself to support that Obama guy.

He gets a nice laugh out of it too.  Meanwhile, the questions remains if Obama can find any Republicans at all who will sign off on this treaty, because after all any sort of foreign policy victory for Obama might embolden the guy into thinking he runs the country, and not the Republicans.

And we can't have that.

Only a Senator would think that the whole world has a button to let you hit reset whenever you don't like every single aspect of an agreement... or maybe a member of the Polish Sejm circa the 18th century.

Actually if we're going to reduce our arms we might as well make sure what we do have available is state of the art wouldn't you think?

Now I don't think now is the time to revamp our military nor is it time to sign a treaty with Russia because they will do what we should be doing. Their country isn't financially owned by China.

It has good intentions behind it, nuclear weapons need to be done away with before something happens that makes Hiroshima and Nagasaki look like accidents. I think we need to be more focused on our economy, getting people back to work than we do with what Russia is doing.
