Oh, the Irony.Republicans have this idea in their head that if they don't like the President they can pretend he doesn't exist and undermine him at every opportunity. The fact is, what they've done is pretty much push away Democrats that may of sided with them because they've turned foreign policy into a partisan affair. Once again though...the Republicans have opened a door so don't be surprised when Democrats walk through it in the future.
Yeah. It's Republicans who decided to make foreign policy a partisan matter and establish the precedent of publicly disagreeing with a Presidents' policy platform in a way that might damage it's implementation.
Republicans warned Iran that the administration is attempting to sideline Congress in a questionable manner, making any deal with him shaky in order to make it harder for the President to give them nukes. Nancy Pelosi went to meet with a leader whose forces were actively aiding in the murder of US troops in Iraq and who was a major terrorist sponsor on top of being a massive human rights abuser in order to help protect him from administration pressure. Forgive me if I take Democrats being shocked - shocked! - to find gambling going on in Ricks Catina with a grain of salt.
