    It's a remark on your ludicrous "pledging allegiance" remark. The Republican letter was written because these Senators think that Obama is being far too easy on a rogue state and refusing his constitutional duty to seek advice and consent from the Senate. This isn't pledging allegiance to Iran.

    Calling the president a king....really, is that your idea of honesty? What century did you say you were from?

    Or maybe you take yourself too seriously, Thrilla. That would explain a lot, too.

    Republicans Admit: That Iran Letter Was a Dumb Idea - The Daily Beast

    A day after releasing a letter that potentially threatened the administration’s negotiations with Iran, some Republicans who signed on are realizing it was a bad call.

    Behind the scenes, Republicans are wondering if sending an open letter to Iran’s leaders was the best strategy to keep a bad nuclear deal from being negotiated.

    Earlier this week, 47 Republican senators signed a letter warning the Iranian government that many of them would remain in office long after President Barack Obama’s second term was over, meaning any deal reached between the U.S. and Iran could be easily reversed by the next president.

    But even among Republicans whose offices have signed the letter, there is some trepidation that the Iran letter injects partisanship into the Iran negotiations, shifting the narrative from the content of the deal to whether Republicans are unfairly trying to undercut the president.

    “Before the letter, the national conversation was about Netanyahu’s speech and how Obama’s negotiations with Iran are leading to a terrible deal that could ultimately harm U.S. national security. Now, the Obama administration and its Capitol Hill partisans are cynically trying to push the conversation away from policy, and towards a deeply political pie fight over presidential and congressional prerogatives,” said a Senate Republican aide whose boss signed the letter.

    Current polls suggest there are lots of conservatives that want that war mongering liar, Netanyahu...or the murderering dictator, Putin... to be their leader instead Obama....so what makes you so different?

    we're all allowed to throw bull**** rhetoric around are we not?... at least my comment was about Obama, I could do what you did and attack you personally.

    Or maybe you take yourself too seriously, Thrilla. That would explain a lot, too.
    yeah, as a Retired marine , i do take some things pretty seriously... lying about me pledging allegiance to another country is one of those things.... of course, that's probably why you levied this personal attack, knowing i would get bent out of shape... .that's what trolls do.

    When other ME countries such Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates agree with Netanyahu how does that make him a 'warmonger'? Do you really understand the meaning of the word?

    I was quite amazed at this statement and, at first, I simply dismissed it as the ravings of a lefty. But, being a fair-minded person, I decided to do a little research. This is what I found.

    There WAS a poll.

    While Vladimir Putin is wildly unpopular in the United States, most Americans see him as a stronger leader than President Obama, according to a YouGov/Economist survey.

    Only 12 percent of poll respondents have a very favorable or somewhat favorable opinion of Putin, and nearly 70 percent see him somewhat unfavorably or very unfavorably. Yet, 78 percent consider him as either somewhat strong or very strong.

    Obama has a significantly higher favorability rating than Putin (47 percent), but just 45 percent of Americans see him as very strong or somewhat strong. And 55 percent believe the opposite.

    Despite this overall perception of Obama as relatively weak compared to Putin, 42 percent of those polled believe that the U.S. president uses “too much power” and 45 percent say he has “exceeded the limits of authority granted” by the Constitution.

    However, since the poll says something entirely different than the outrageous blather you spewed, it seems that my first inclination was accurate. Your post is hereby dismissed as the ravings of a lefty.


    btw, I didn't do similar research on Netanyahu, so I suppose your ravings might not extend to him. But, unless you provide your own research to prove your point, I'll include him in with your idiocy about Putin.

    I understand they all agree on having a war with Iran at US expense. So if that's not war mongering then what is?
