    I think you are Right on the aspect that they would notice that chink in BO's armor.....it was a thought that the Democrats might have noticed that once he started his own progressive group. (which that's the BO Bots terminology) That they would figure out how they were used and could be replaced. That they might want to stand together as a party and not put him over their own selves.

    BO's problem always was.....telegraphing to those who he never liked.

    Menendez stepped over the line, with everything that's been alleged previously, when he heaped praise on Netanyahu and indicated he was in favor of renewed sanctions on Iran. That's playing for the wrong team, I think. Obama is very serious about his deal with Iran.

    Has Holder ever gone after a prominent Democrat before? I know that there has been no action on the IRS, and he backs up Obama on everything, even amnesty for illegals.

    Sponsored a Bill with Mark Kirk out of Illinois to.....and then geared up opposition to BO to go with Sanctions if the Iranians stall or there is no good deal. Now hopefully some of the other Democrats will wake the **** up and take notice.

    The Best way to hurt BO peep.....is to go after those close to him. Then he can show the American people just how human his ass really is.

    Didn't take long for this thread to turn into a Conspiratorial BO peeps is mad at Menendez over Iran spew.
    Never mind that the Federal investigation has been going on for several months in front of a grand jury.

    Did you even notice that Menendez excoriated McConnell for trying to advance the DEM sanctions bill before the Iran talks are done?
    But heh, carry on with your anti-Obama noise, even though your fellow righties in this thread aren't with you; kudos to them .

    Looks like BO peep and his inner circle will have to figure out another way to remove Menendez from blocking his Iranian deal and play with Cuba.

    You are sorely misinformed, there is NO amnesty plan from President Obama.

    To be honest, I thought these were just smear allegations but apparently getting on the wrong side of Obama can be detrimental to one's political career.

    No I didn't believe Holder would go through with charges and I'm still skeptical until I actually see a copy or Menendez is formally charged. What some of our left wing friends in this thread seem to forget is everything with this President is political and given his and the DoJ's past prosecutorial discretion on other subjects like voter intimidation and Obama and Holders blatherings on race, one would have assumed as I did, that this would be glossed over or, that the charges were bogus. Perhaps Menendez would like to go back in time and support Obama's Cuba initiative and stayed silent about Iran. Look at it this way, if they get Menendez now, Obama can pardon him later. Win win!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Enough votes in both houses to implement sanctions which they as I understand can do. The Senate would have enough Dems to override a veto.
    The thing is, would the other countries continue with sanctions?
