President Obama cited a Republican hero Saturday as he called on senators to approve a new nuclear arms treaty with Russia.I wish we could trust this man, but his actions verify he'll say and do anything.
In his weekly radio address, the president said having the Senate ratify the START Treaty before the end of this year is crucial to America’s national security. Obama said the agreement follows in the tradition of President Ronald Reagan and his negotiations with the then-Soviet Union over reducing both countries’ stockpiles of nuclear arms.
“To ensure that our national security is protected, the United States has an interest in tracking Russia’s nuclear arsenal through a verification effort that puts U.S. inspectors on the ground. As President Reagan said when he signed a nuclear arms treaty with the Soviet Union in 1987, ‘Trust, but verify,’” Obama said.
