The only thing dumber than Democrat President Barack Obama giving troop withdrawal dates to the enemy is potential Democrat President Liz Warren telling the enemy we won't use nuclear weapons first. Let that sink in.

Warren has co-sponsored legislation with fellow Democrat Senator Adam Smith of Washington that would prevent the U.S. from using nukes first under any condition. They say the policy would “reduce the chances of a nuclear miscalculation.”

The Democrats are apparently so concerned that President Trump is colluding with the Russians that they don't want him to be able to annihilate Putin before Putin can launch an attack on us. Let that sink in.

Oh wait, perhaps there is something as equally dumb. The Bay State's other brain trust in the Senate, Democrat Ed Markey, is hawking a bill that would require congressional approval before the president could launch a nuclear first strike.

Putin would have time to hand deliver his nukes to the U.S. before Congress ever came to an agreement.

First rule of survival: you don't tell the enemy what you will or will not do. By the way, these are the same people who want to collect your guns. Let that sink in.

Elizabeth Warren is an embarrassment to the people of Massachusetts. Yet 63 percent of you chose to return her to the Senate. You own it now. Don't blame me, I voted for Geoff Diehl.
