Weekly Address: START is about the Safety and Security of America; Not Scoring Political Points [December 18, 2010] [open pdf - 51KB]
In this December 18, 2010 weekly address, "President Obama called on members of Congress to come together to ratify the new START treaty [Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty] just as they were able to come together to pass the essential economic package he signed into law on Friday. Ratifying a treaty like START is not about winning a victory for an administration or a political party, it is about the safety and security of the country. This is why it has been endorsed by both Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, every living Republican Secretary of State, our NATO allies, and the leadership of the military."
