    It's not just someone, its a foreign minister, as such, the guy in charge of foreign policy should be doing it, or at least consulted. Are you really, denying that Boner was jabbing Obama with this. Are you telling me that you'd be just fine with it, all things reversed.

    You said it was unconstitutional, now show me where.

    Monty is a fan of COTUS so it should be easy to show exactly where.

    I know, it's the 47th amendment....Congress shall hold no events, speaking or otherwise before asking the POTUS for permission first.

    What else would you expect a "friend of Hamas" to say? Please don't waste your time (and mine) defending that Breitbart hack.

    but yeah, you can go with simple "spite" if that makes ya feel better.
    I would describe it as political spite....one-upmanship. As for Iran, what's so wrong with letting diplomacy run its course?

    Its already run its course, and they are soon to get a nuke, sending the entire ME into an arms race with a group thats crazy enough to use it.

    Thats not good enough.

    Heres where you whine "what right do we have to decide who gets nukes" and other such gibberish.

    of course you would... you're here to defend Obama and you believe he was insulted.... that's the basis of just about everyone who has a problem with this whole thing.

    diplomacy is still running it's course, but Congress is charged with passing( or not passing) sanctions... it's like, you know, their job and stuff...talking to our #1 ally in the region is pretty helpful in determining a course of action, no matter what Obama supporters believe.
