The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with Russia shows once again that President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats favor unilateral disarmament, conservative radio talk legend Rush Limbaugh says.
“These are Obama's objectives,” Limbaugh explained on his show. “He said this during the campaign. He wants to reduce and eliminate nuclear arsenals, and he'll start with ours.”
The president is just following through on his campaign promises, Limbaugh says. “He vowed to get rid of our missile defense. Everybody knows the Russians don't live up to agreements. This is not about the Russians. This is about us.”
Democrats have found their enemy, and it is us, Limbaugh says. To Democrats, “the focus of evil in the modern world is the United States,” he says. “Our nuclear arsenal makes us the lone superpower. We represent the threat. We represent the focus of evil.”
As for Obama, “he's just fulfilling a lifelong dream of the Democrat Party and the American left and the worldwide left, and he's got the votes to do it,” Limbaugh says.
Limbaugh is none too happy with Republicans who backed START. He cites a column from Andrew McCarthy in National Review to illustrate his case: "As is too often the case, Republican senators are taking their foreign-affairs cues from John McCain and Richard Lugar, leaders of the caucus’s moderate wing -- which is to say, its incoherent wing," McCarthy writes.
"The Senate is pretending that it has the authority to rewrite a treaty, while the president pretends that the unacceptable treaty can be fixed by writing letters to the senators who need courting rather than writing a new treaty with Russian leaders who need convincing."
Getting back to Limbaugh, he says, “It's inexplicable all these Republicans helping out.”
The upshot is a mess, he points out. “It is not helpful to the United States, it's helpful to our enemies, but this is the status quo for the Democrat Party, folks. The Democrat Party [has] always sided with the Soviet Union over America.”
