Obama, Medvedev Optimistic On START Replacement

President Barack Obama and Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev say they still plan to have a replacement START nuclear arms reduction treaty ready by year's end.

Obama and his Russian counterpart met Sunday on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum. Russian and U.S. negotiators are working against a tight deadline. The current START agreement runs out Dec. 5.

Without mentioning specifics, Obama and Medvedev said technical and political issues remained to be hammered out.

    Oh come on people. What do you think would happen if the other guy became the president. And if I hear one more time that he is the devil or something I am going to lose my mind! You dont personally know him and neither do I. And by the way no one is perfect and never lies okay people so grow up. That perfect person died for us years ago and no one is going to come here again that is perfect until he comes to take us home.

    Our brave women and men within the military put their lives at risk on a daily basis. Obama and Medvedev should have to go through basic training and fight for their own country for at least four years before taking office as president. Maybe if they did that, it would cause them to humble themselves and realize how much our freedoms are at stake and taken for granted. These spoiled rotten, lying, cheating non-patriotic men are just puppets of the devil and his New World Order agenda. They wouldn't dare lay their lives down for their fellow citizen, much less be honest, stand up for the truth and do the right thing. Please remember how and why this country was founded and next time vote for someone who has a proven track record of success that has fought for what's left of this great country of ours. Wash the sugar from your ears and wake up because we are on the brink of losing all that we've fought for over the past 200 years. Lets give them a CHANGE!!!!!!!
