    When have virtually the entire Democratic senate delegation wrote a letter to an enemy government in the middle of negotiations with the President to advise that enemy government not to accept any agreement with the president?

    Who got re-elected president in 2012 again?

    THERE IS NO DEAL YET. You can't say people don't want it when it doesn't exist.

    But negotiating some sort of deal with that enemy government without a single shred of Congressional input is totally fine and of zero concern to you. Lol.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    Yeah, its totally unprecedented for a president to negotiate a deal with an foreign government without congressional approval.... I mean its only happened hundreds of times. As the letter points out, if the Republicans don't like the deal they can simply ignore it if they win the presidency in 2016.

    This could not sum up your position on this forum any better. You might as well post that exact line in any political thread about Obama.

    THERE IS NO DEAL YET. You can't say people don't want it when it doesn't exist.
    I can say definitively that many people do not want any deal with Iran.

    It's funny how when you were speaking about the GOP, they were repeatedly "The enemy government" but talk about Obama making deals with them and now they're just a "foreign government".

    Quite the dumb move. It opens up another avenue of negotiations and allows Iran to play one branch of gov't off of the other.
    Why would Iran negotiate if they get a letter delivered that says:

    To Whom it May concern:
    Just a quick civics lesson since you guys probably never saw School House Rock.
    Ya know, any deal that you sign just might be null and void if we can get hold of that White House.
    We're just sayin'
    Signed, Your Friends in Congress, The Mighty GOP, et al.

    Iran can nix the whole deal saying that they don't know who their negotiating with.
    They can then press full ahead, sanctions be damned. Someone is always willing to circumvent them to make a buck.
    Just keep a record of everyone who signed the letter and watch them back away when the election is in full swing.
    And while we're at it, let's invite Bibi over here.
    We can fawn all over him, and remove any pressure he might feel to stop the settlements, and help him get re-elected.
    What a bunch of Maroons!

    Edit: Now that I think about it, another aspect to this that really doesn't surprise me is that they are ignoring that what the letter states is actually true. Which means that once again, they are ignoring the Constitution. A common theme of late.

    The funny thing is.....Cotton graduated from Harvard. So its not like he wouldn't know what the law is. Plus he knows it way more than BO Peep does.

    Its funny how when someone doesn't have an argument, they resort to arguing semantics. The fact is, and you know this, had almost all the senate Democrats wrote a letter to a foreign government advising them not to accept any agreement with the Bush administration, the Republicans, Talk Radio Hosts, and virtually all the commentators on Fox News would be calling them traitors and would be calling for the trial and execution as enemies of the state. That is the kind of absurd hyperbole regularly demonstrated on the hardcore right. Hell there are nutters on this very forum arguing we can't trust Obama to negotiate with Iran because of his "Muslim sympathies"

    I don't think what the Republicans did was treasonous, but rather just a douchebag thing to do.
