Your Weekly Address: New START Treaty "Fundamental" to Security

The President says ratifying the New START, a pivotal treaty with Russia on nuclear weapons, must happen this year.  He explains that failure to ratify the treaty this year would not only mean losing our nuclear inspectors in Russia, but also undermine the international coalition pressuring Iran, put at risk the transit routes used to equip our troops in Afghanistan, and undo decades American leadership and bipartisanship on nuclear security.

Weekly Wrap-Up

A quick look at the week of November 15, 2010:

Quote: “It is in these labs -- often late at night, often fueled by a dangerous combination of coffee and obsession -- that our future is being won,” said President Obama during the presentation of the National Medals of Science, Technology and Innovation, “For in a global economy, the key to our prosperity will never be to compete by paying our workers less or building cheaper, lower-quality products. That's not our advantage. The key to our success -- as it has always been -- will be to compete by developing new products, by generating new industries, by maintaining our role as the world’s engine of scientific discovery and technological innovation. It’s absolutely essential to our future.” VIDEO: http://wh.gov/OrI
