It's quite obvious why the Senate Republicans went along with Obama on the START
bill. They are afraid of the new "conservatives" that were elected on
Tea Party hysteria. Who knows what those wackos will do when they take their
places in January. Even two faced Hatch is trying to grow a third public face,
he's scared to death of those wackos. The so called Dead Duck session has been
quite a success simply because a few moderate Republicans figured it's better to
vote on a good bill now then wait for the wackos to start walking the halls of
Congresss in January. Then we'll see what these Tea Party wackos are all about
or what they are NOT about. Way to go Obama.
Just because we believe in the original precepts of the Constitution makes us
wackos? There is no such thing as a moderate Republican. Only RINOs.
Unfortunately, the article gave us no real details about what America just
agreed to. Hopefully there are no enemies to freedom hiding in a Trojan horse
within this treaty.scojos: I can see that you have a very open mind,
labeling people with any hint of a different view than yours as
Chalk up yet another major achievement to the Obama administration that has
inherited such monstrous problems from the conservative administration beforeit.In the end - it's the good guys that finish first!

I have not been able to find out how Hatch and Bennett voted on this. I wish
the article would have mentioned this.
Conservative Veteran Hatch against it.Bennett for it.
How can America trust Russia when they are sleeping with Iran?. You tell me.
The Senate ratified an arms control treaty with Russia that reins in the
nuclear weapons that could plunge the world into doomsday, giving President
Barack Obama a major foreign policy win in the closing hours of the postelection
Congress. Thirteen Republicans broke with their top two leaders and joined 56
Democrats and two independent in providing the necessary two-thirds vote to
approve the treaty. The vote was 71-26. The accord, which still must be
approved by Russia, would restart onsite weapons inspections as successors to
President Ronald Reagan have embraced his edict of "trust, but
verify." A new poll shows President Obama ahead of Sarah Palin 54 percent
to 39 percent in a potential match-up. You know what that means? John McCain
could get Barack Obama elected twice. Happy birthday to Chinese President Hu
Jintao. President Obama was going to get him a present, but it's a little weird
buying someone a gift with their own money.
Just as I am suspicious of the radical activists that Obama surrounds himself
with, I am wondering why anybody would trust this sleasy person, John Kerry,
with the plan of peace for our country?
I'm really suprised that the Deseret News which routinely rejects my comments
would allow the term "wackos" to be published. The Deseret News seems
to have a really an inconsistent editorial policy. I wonder if they will
publish this comment. Anyway, I am glad to see the New START Treaty passed. I
was living at Sun Arbor (now Sky Harbor) Apartments when the Russian inspectors
first came to Utah under START I back in the 80s. It really was exciting as the
management and residents came out to welcome them.
Thank you Senator Bennett for looking to future generations rather than short
term poltical gain. How can anyone in the 21st century oppose a reduction of
obsolete nuclear weapons, which if they weren't reduced and destroyed would
inevitably in the free market fall into the wrong hands. Praise is due to
thinking elected officials on both side of the aisle.
Hatch again shows he is captive to the right wing and cannot govern wisely.
