Dear Establishment Media

Please drop the ridiculous narrative. Try to get this straight. The failure to ratify START is not Obama's fault. It says nothing about his presidency. Obama did his part of the job. He restored diplomatic relations and negotiated a really good treaty.

The onus is on Republican obstructionism, blocking a vote on something critical to our national security and indeed vital to the security of the entire planet.

It couldn't be clearer that the GOPers are engaging in the most irresponsible political machinations ever simply to deny our President even one political victory, not matter how critical the policy, in order to spin him as a loser. So can we make that the story please?

Funny, I don't think that the right wing has sunk to a new low, just the usual one. Like holding the hostages hostage to get Reagan in the WH. Like betraying our intelligence community, specifically Valerie Plame, who was dealing with nuclear hazards. Like destroying the world's economy for a failed ideology.

yeh, and posted about it today.

Agree it's not new but I really do think that this treaty is major accomplishment and critical to national and international security and this is perhaps the lowest they've gone yet. Also way under-reported. Glad you're giving it attention at The Lake where more people will read it.
