I find it curious you didn't include this part of the article in your quote:
Kind of blows that lead sentence from the article right out of the water, doesn't it?However, while some on the Republican side are now rethinking the wisdom of sending a letter, none of the 47 Republican signatories are recanting their support for it or signaling an intent to do so.
Also, the only two Republican Congressmen the article quoted were Republicans who DIDN'T sign the letter and that aide wasn't so much as saying it was a bad idea, but was pointing out the tactics of the Obama administration.
But hey...it's the Daily Beast, after all.
"... Don't you wish we had Benjamin Netanyahu as president, instead of Obama? I took a sampling among my friends- all smart, educated business owners. Men of substance. Every one of them said if they had a choice, they'd choose Bibi over Obama for president…of the United States....."
Bibi for President!
"Can we get like Netanyahu, or like Putin in for 48 hours, you know, head of the United States?” - Kimberly Guilfoyle, Fox News cohost.
Conservatives Go Gaga For Bibi As They Trip Over Themselves Praising Netanyahu's Speech
"...There is some division among Republicans who cannot quite decide if they want to fight Vladimir Putin or fornicate with the Russian, but one thing is clear; conservatives think he is a “real leader” and lust for a Republican president like Putin...."
Republicans Have Found Their Dream Leader and His Name Is Vladimir Putin
"I wish that Bibi was our President." - Ann Coulter
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
To what specific terms are the Senators objecting? None. No such terms exist, because there is no agreement right now. Had an agreement been reached and had the Senate found it defective, then that would be the appropriate time for the Senate to act. Moreover, the Senate could well express its position i.e., by a sense of the Senate resolution or other legislation even if the President did not submit the agreement to the Senate for its consideration.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
Obama could have avoided all this conflict he's generated since the last election if he had only faced reality instead of deciding to work against the wishes of Congress from the get-go. I think it's already been said in this thread, but "you reap what you sow".
