Why is Obama wasting time with this?

With the economy in the tank, uncertainty on taxes with the GWB tax cuts set to expire, people set to lose unemployment compensation and Obama dedicates his weekly radio address to new START?

Why are we concerned with a nuke arms reduction agreement with Russia a basic non threat country when we have dangerous rogue countries like NK and Iran building a nuke arsenal?

Charles Krauthammer discusses it well.

  • Because it's his JOB as president to keep our country safe. It's not is only job to pull us out of this messed up economy. A lot of things that people thing the president approves, he doesn't. It's approved and set by congress. Let the man do his job and stop complaining. If anyone things they can do a better job, then by all means start the process to become President.

  • Why is Obama wasting time with this?

    Because that's what he does best! Waste time, and try to make it appear he knows what he's doing. Either that, or the batteries wore out on his teleprompter. Take your pick.

  • Our CinC is living in some sort of alternate utopian dream that has nothing to do with reality ~ that's why. He made a weak comment about the carriers being sent in NKs general direction but failed to mention that they had already been scheduled to head that way. Given the noises that NK and China are making, it's likely that the spineless 'one' will either call off the exercises or have them moved (I'm waiting to see how that pans out).

    Personally I'm hoping that Santa brings him 'a pair' for Christmas ... maybe one of those nice brass ones that you can order around the internet ...
