Sen. Corker Threatens Reid: If You Bring DADT Repeal For A Vote, We’ll Walk Away From START

Tennessee's GOP Senator Bob Corker threatens to block the START Treaty if Dems move to even vote on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. There are no words to describe the callousness, the shamefulness, the lowness of Corker's position:

This afternoon, as momentum began to build for repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) threatened that if Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) brings up a vote to repeal the ban, Republicans would not support ratification of the New START treaty. Referring to DADT a “partisan” and “political” issue, Corker accused Reid of poisoning the well with Democratic “campaign promises” to “accommodate activist groups.”
