Excellent work McConnell. /s
Rino’s in sheep’s clothing? All the Hoo Ha, and what do you get? SOS!
They all should be tried for treason.
Thad Conrad from Mississippi, Mike Johanns from Nebraska, and Jonny Isacson from Georgia need to go. Big Time RINOS.....the others are obvious RINOS.
I’m not a conspiracy person but I’ve been wondering how this thing went from dead to passing with a margin in a matter of a few days. I wonder if each Senator was taken into a room and shown footage of a missle test over the Pacific ocean that we were all told was the vapor trail of a jet. Something is up.
I really wonder what is going on here.
Did Obama cut a deal with the GOP whereby they agreed to give him enough votes for this in return for that hokey tax bill?
Do they think that by passing this thing, the majority of GOP COngresscritters can hang Obama with it later?
Or are they, like Bush I, Henry Kissinger, and Colon Powell, simply STUPID??
Whats up with the Tennessee dudes? Oak Ridge gonna get a lot of the dismantling work? Nothing like putting parochial concerns ahead of National Security. And their Constitutional Oath. Well, aside from keeping those idiots in mind in 2012, also keep them in mind when an administration who actually takes their National Security responsibilities seriously breaks the treaty.
So they sold out Missile Defense eh?
If we ever have an incoming ICBM that slaughters Americans in this country these who voted for this had better be prepared to pay the ultimate price.
Because Missile Defense could save lives and they would be THE ONES who saw it dismantled.
Chalk up another “big win” for Barack the Kenyan and his Commie’RAT Party. They’re eating the GOP’s AND AMERICA’S lunch. The Princess Scorned of the North got yet another shot to take out more revenge on America. Mookowski is in full Obama Tingle mode now!
Let's just hope they land in their states.
Standing bravely in the face of Russian threats./sarccccc

Ronald Reagan used the threat of an effective missile defense to bankrupt and bring down the Soviet Union.
Barack Obama traded missile defense for an unverifiable bit of nothing.
Three GOP Senators did not cast votes in the START ratification: Bond, R-MO; Brownback, R-KS and Bunning, R-KY.

Repeal direct election of senators.
Screw you, POSGOP. You folded...again.
No, Senator McConnell, don't you dare come around here trying to talk tough and pretend you're actually opposing Obama and the leftist Democrats that are steadily dismantling this country's basic structures (economic, military) while eroding individual freedoms, piece by piece, i.e. 'net neutrality' which is the first small step to the government controlling the internet. Once it does, websites such as this (Free Republic) will be just a memory of 'the good old days'... that congressional 'Republicans' helped the leftist America-haters destroy - while weak-chinned 'leaders' like you, Mitch McConnell, did nothing but whine and pretend to be 'tough'. Spare us, please.
