“The GOP’s Stupid Letter” is what the Gipper’s adoptive son called the group letter to the Iranian government signed by 47 Senators.
His argument has a certain familiarity to it; while the GOP actors might be right on some level about the substance, that they did it all wrong.
I really tire of this type of argument. We heard it with any number of funding bills, filibusters, quasi-filibusters, and other tactics. It’s almost always bullshit.
With this Iran business, I’m not even sure what a reasonable alternative would have been to the letter. Obama has clearly failed to take the fucking hint that the Congress opposes this deal on the grounds that it will, at best, lead to an Israeli-Iranian war within a decade, and at worse would lead to a nuclear attack on Israel. Obama is wrong on procedure and policy.
How is it that Republicans are getting the blame for this? In what possible universe is it the fault of the letter signers that Obama is an ideologically blinded imbecile who can’t be bothered to follow his own Constitution? And if there were some fault to be found with Republican actions, how does this overshadow Obama’s apparent desire to get Israel nuked?
