Nuclear Weapons

Just Like Bush

From reader Arthur:

It's important to remind everyone here once again how Obama is just like Bush.

President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev agreed on Friday to reduce the arsenals of the world's two largest nuclear powers – the first major arms accord in a generation.


On December 13, 2001, George W. Bush gave Russia notice of the United States' withdrawal from the treaty, in accordance with the clause that requires six months' notice before terminating the pact. This was the first time in recent history the United States has withdrawn from a major international arms treaty.

Anyone who tries to tell you that President Obama is just like Bush, or that the Democrats are just like the Republicans, is being deliberately stupid.
