    On the contrary, they are correct. Iranians have a hard time understanding that other executives are not Supreme Leaders, but in this country, the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land, not Executive Branch writ.


    Really, if they are wise (deeply questionable, I know), the administration will clue in that Republican have just strengthened their negotiating position.

    Mind you, that would require that they see Diplomacy as a means to an end, rather than an end in and of itself....

    He's the President. The higher office always carries the greater obligation for leadership and a good example.

    On the contrary - they have demonstrated the weakness of any US President who thinks that he can make major lasting deals unilaterally; and they did it simply by describing reality .

    true enough. It seems Democrats are now shocked to discover that Senators, too, have pens, and probably even phones.

    It does indeed work both ways, but one side has a greater obligation to rise above. He did not, and the result is plain to see.
