That's what GOP always do - scream and shout about things that make them look so out of touch with our country. If they get in the White House you better know that they will start some kind of war because that's all they know how to do - bully! Americans will not let this happen! Obama 2012

Partisan thinking is an oxymoron

So no longer building and stockpiling weapons that could end the world is what the GOP calls "reckless lunacy." Funny, to me having these weapons in the first place is reckless lunacy.

Needed... One Real Democrat President
09:08 AM on 02/16/2012
Every opinion poll done in the US on nuclear weapons since 2004 supports the President's move.

Now really, how many of these nukes do we need. If we used 5% of what we have, we could destroy the world ten times over. How many would we need to attack Iran? I think one would be enough. And Russia or China, maybe a dozen each. Two for Pakistan and one each for Afganistan and Iraq if needed. Maybe a couple for India if everythiong goes to heck, I can't even see the need for a hundred. The republicans think the more we have, the stronger we are. Total nosense. We can cut 75% and we still have enough to take care of anything that arises. Lets just hope republican don't get their hands on the launch button. They just might use them against blue states.

If politicians opinions were valued in dollars, they would be worth less than nothing. Give everything an up or down vote and be done with it. The public is tired of the drama.

Obama could come up with the solution to world hunger and the cure for cancer and the GOP would still be against it....they simply reject anything associated with the black democrat & chief.

Breathing causes the GOP to reject him, are you kidding me, let alone a reasonable reduction in nuclear weapons.

I think it has more to do with the fact hat he's a lousy President.

It's not his presidency that's lousy...it's the congress that's obstructing him at every turn that's lousy. The man himself is doing OK with the record obstruction against him. We'd be in a lot worse shape if McCain & Palin would of been there, ALOT WORSE.

The GOP really knows how to get on the wrong side of every issue these days.

The Republicans are "spreading romney" all over the place, now that President Obama's approval ratings are increasing and the Republican's ratings are going into the toilet.

Another fake outrage by the right.

We spend more on defense than the next 5 highest countries combined.

You can only blow up the world once. We have enough weapons to do it multiple times.

At a time when we need to rebuild infrastructure, educate kids to compete in a global world, and develop economic strength this is another non issue to distract people.

from the current treaty limit of 1,550 deployed strategic warheads.

Boy oh boy what is wrong with these so called leaders of the Nuclear States, 1550 WARHEADS? of what? THERMO NUCLEAR BOMBS? why on earth would ANY country NEED SO MANY? . It seems to me that 1545 of those missile warheads will never get their day in court because about the 1st 5 NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS SHOULD JUST ABOUT DO IT, AND MOST PEOPLE ARE THEN TOAST. So what a waste of the taxpayers money. And NO I wouldn't want to survive a Nuclear War, any survivors left would find life most miserable, DROP THE 1ST ONE ON MY HEAD PLEASE.

Republicans are nothing more than FEARMONGERS. Fear, fear, fear, fear and more fear 24/7! 300-400 of the latest nuclear bombs would be enough to destroy the world SEVERAL times!

Adam Smith is absolutely correct. Any reductions in spending are ACTUALLY decreases of the increases. The level of paranoia that got us to spend more than the next 16 developed nations comnbined is PROOF of the level of paranoia and the RECKLESS spending (mostly by Republicans) on defense.

We have the capability of blowing up the entire world how many times? Our Nuclear capabilities
are how many times larger than the next 10 countries?
Cut & invest in more Seal 6 teams & Attack drones for likely future gigs......

No........this lunacy puts Russia and China ahead of the USA.......... The reason there has never been a NUK war is because we own superority......... Children of the 60s need to be reminded why they remain free.

You are partly correct. But it wasn't just the nuclear armaments we possess. Both China and then Soviet Union realized the results of Total Nuclear Annihilation. The US is able to participate in that exercise with less...trust me.

The world could not heal after such destruction for thousands of years, especially if the atmosphere is blown away. Think about it.
