While today he has reached an agreement with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on a mutual reduction of our nuclear arsenal. Giving Obama a victory abroad as well.
The Washington Post writes.
The treaty calls for both sides to reduce the stockpiles of their most dangerous weapons, those already deployed and ready to launch at long-range targets, by about 30 percent, allowing each side to retain about 1,550 such missiles.
Of course the GOP may have a problem with such a treaty.
But the deal now faces some skepticism in the Senate, where it will need Republican support to get the 67 votes required for ratification. Several key GOP senators, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have recently expressed concerns about the treaty's impact on the U.S. missile defenses program.
Can anyone say Politics as usual. God forbid if we only have 1500 long range nuclear missiles. Does the GOP need a win so bad that they would block such a treaty?
