I note the senator from Kentucky leaving the floor without justification or any rationale for the action he has just taken. That is really remarkable, that a senator blocking a treaty that is supported by the overwhelming number, perhaps 98—at least—of his colleagues would come to the floor and object and walk away. The only conclusion you can draw when he walks away is he has no justification for his objection to having a small nation be part of NATO that is under assault from the Russians. So I repeat again, the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.
He does have a point there
“I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits. I think maybe he is past his prime. Maybe he has gotten a little bit unhinged.”
“His foreign policy is something that would greatly endanger the United States. Greatly over extend us. And there has to be the thought, whether or not, it is in our national interest to pledge, to get involved with war, if Montenegro has an altercation with anyone.” “There is also another argument, is that when you ask the people of Montenegro, only about 40% and slightly less are actually in favor of this. They are close to Russia, they are close to being sort of like Ukraine, in the transition from Europe to Asia. Perhaps it would be good to be more like Switzerland, and be more neutral to trade with both.” “To call someone, somehow an enemy of the state, or a traitor might be considered by most reasonable people a little over the top.”
