Happy Valentine's Day from the Republican Party

 

McClatchy Washington Bureau

Republicans are out with their own valentines, strictly for partisans only.

One depicts Hillary Clinton with a microphone, asking "What difference, at this point, does this valentine make?"

Another features Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, asking if things can be taken to the "nuclear level."

Last year Reid invoked what many call the "nuclear option," making it easier for the Democratic-run Senate to approve certain Obama administration nominees.

Others come in for satire, including former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, Vice President Joe Biden and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

But no Republican offering can be complete without a jab at President Barack Obama.

Sure enough -- the GOP card, featuring Obama: "If you like this valentine, you can keep it."

In an escalation of tensions, the Obama administration accused Russia on July 28, 2014, of conducting tests in violation of a 1987 nuclear missile treaty, calling the breach "a very serious matter" and going public with allegations that have simmered for some time. The treaty confrontation comes at a highly strained time between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin over Russia's intervention in Ukraine and Russia's grant of asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden.
