The same assholes who bitched about President Barack Obama winning a Nobel Peace Prize are now bitching about this proposal. Even though it's time to move pass these silly feuds with Iran and Cuba, the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Republican majority continue to fuck up the world, because of their utter hatred of the leaders of these countries. The Republicans don't give two fucks about these peace talks.
Seem like the terms of endearment comes with a price. Some are claiming that the Senators who signed it may have violated the law.
Republican senators mail the letter to Tehran. They call for no negotiations. They call for more sanctions and possible action if Iran continues on. They tell Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhan that any deal with the U.S. can be undone with the next president or Congress. They also claim that the missile will be heading their way if they try anything funny.
We finally introduce the controversial Arkansas Republican senator Tom Cotton to the fold.
He along with Majority Leader Mitch The Turtle (R-KY), fellow Stallmigos Ted Cruz (R-TX), Joni Ernst (R-IA) Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Tim Scott (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-FL), David Purdue (R-GA), Thom Tillis (R-NC) and numerous others signed up to this bullshit.
These assholes are defying years of delicate talks. For what reason?
To undermine the president.
Forty-seven Republicans on Sunday wrote directly to Tehran to suggest that any nuclear deal with the Obama administration would not be constitutionally binding because a future president or Congress could take steps to revoke it.
The White House blasted the Republicans. Vice President Joe Biden called the move an unprecedented affront "designed to undercut a sitting president."
CNN reports that President Barack Obama slammed Republican senators who penned a letter attempting to warn Iran that any pending nuclear agreement will face their scrutiny, claiming they were aligning themselves with Iranian "hard-liners."
"I think it's somewhat ironic to see some members for Congress wanting to make common cause with the hard-liners in Iran. It's an unusual coalition," Obama said Monday ahead of a meeting with European Council President Donald Tusk.
"I think what we're going to focus on right now is actually seeing whether we're going to get a deal or not. Once we do, if we do, we'll be able to make the case to the American people, and I'm confident we'll be able to implement it," Obama said.

The Iran Primer asked the foreign minister. Zarif expressed astonishment that some members of US Congress find it appropriate to write to leaders of another country against their own President and administration. He pointed out that from reading the open letter, it seems that the authors not only do not understand international law, but are not fully cognizant of the nuances of their own Constitution when it comes to presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy.
Foreign Minister Zarif added that “I should bring one important point to the attention of the authors and that is, the world is not the United States, and the conduct of inter-state relations is governed by international law, and not by US domestic law. The authors may not fully understand that in international law, governments represent the entirety of their respective states, are responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs, are required to fulfil the obligations they undertake with other states and may not invoke their internal law as justification for failure to perform their international obligations.”
The Republicans are forever stuck on stupid. By electing these idiots to the Congress, we'll see President Barack Obama's final years marred by the utter stupidity of Republicans.
