    here and focusing his efforts and attention on holding the START treaty hostage because he wants to delay votes on the DREAM Act, DADT repeal, etc., and to put tax cuts for the wealthy ahead of the START treaty.

    His BS line is "this is a matter of reality, not of policy."

    Stop clapping. Stop screaming. Open your mind. Listen.

        like Republicans are incompetent or making any attempt to argue in good faith. Obstruction is their only tactic. It's all they have. They know their days are numbered, because as the country's aged die off, the rest of the population is generally less reactionary and conservative. Generally. So their hope is to leave a smoking pile of ashes so that once they are finally and forever rendered obsolete, nobody will be able to enjoy themselves. I'm not even kidding when I write that.
