A Mushroom Cloud of Obstruction: Why Republicans Are Blocking START

No Start Treaty

Republicans will not address the START treaty because it is a top foreign policy priority of the Obama Administration. Unfortunately, without a means of accounting for every last nuclear device in the Russian arsenal, it is a very real possibility that a rogue nation or terror group can acquire and detonate a nuclear device in an American city. For humanity, that would be a disaster of epic proportion, but for Republicans, it will be a reason to blame the Obama Administration for allowing an attack on America. Perhaps that is their real goal; a mushroom cloud over a major American city.

The Media Carries The GOP’s Water With the Govt is Broken Narrative

Democrats are ultimately responsible for solving the problem of the gridlock. But Democrats can't force Republicans to work together to solve the country's problems, and frankly, this meme only reinforces the illogical idea the Democrats have power over Republicans. Blaming Democrat for GOP obstructionism is ridiculous. That's like blaming a domestic violence victim for the abuser's behavior. Democrats have control over their own behavior, and their only choice right now is to overcome the GOP obstructionism using any legal means necessary.
