Republican calls Reagan’s dream “cockamamie”

Today, the Senate ratified the START treaty 71-26, despite the Republican leadership’s strong opposition. In fact, Jeff Sessions called Obama’s goal of a nuclear-free world “cockamamie” and called for a rejection of the treaty. It seems like the Republican leadership were the only people opposed to the treaty, which was supported by all recent Secretaries of State (Democrat and Republican), all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, former Republican presidents, and even, it seems, by the Republican’s patron saint:

“A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this Earth.” – Ronald Reagan, 1984

    The 9/11 first responders bill and the repeal of DADT have both been passed by the lame duck Congress. Maybe Obama’s not doing so bad after all.

    How come I have not heard one news host directly challenge a Republican who has publicly challenged Obama on this stance, by making the St. Ronnie comparison?
