I'm not necessarily opposed to START, but the passionate insistence of supporters that the treaty is absolutely vital to our national security, that is will be an undeniable glorious win for America, that the only possible reason to oppose it is fanatical Obama hatred is either ill-informed or willfully ignorant. These are the similar to the hysterics we heard in support of the Cooperative Threat Reduction program, which, while fantastic for the Russians, hardly live up to its billing for the United States.
We can, you know, weigh the plusses and minuses, and choose to enter into an agreement without rhetorically smothering the life out of any semblance of realism.
