"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
well, as none of are privy to any terms, none of us can answer the question with any accuracy.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.
the proper time for the Senate to act in it's constitutional role is prior to a agreement being made, not after..."advise and consent" can only come prior to an agreement being entered into.
furthermore, in the event Obama actually submits the agreement for their reading pleasure, you are arguing the Senate should simply voice their opinion through a non-binding resolution that carries no legal weight in any jurisdiction,...
as Obama has previously stated that he will not be submitting the agreement " for years", I guess you are left with advising the Senate to pass a non-binding resolution about something they will have little or no knowledge of, and that has already gone into effect (including the lifting of sanctions that were passed by Congress)
you're basically arguing that Obama is correct in denying the Senate their constitutional power and duty... they should simply sit down and shut up and deal with it.
while we agree on the actions of the Senate pertaining to he letter, I'm pretty sure that's where our agreement ends.
when you flat out deny the Senate their constitutional duties.. they tend to fight back against it... though , in this particular case, their tactic was pretty stupid.
