...They sent Iran a letter essentially proclaiming any
successful negotiation brokered by the White House
with the Theocratic nation of Iran is dead after 2016.
--Really?? Some of these DC radical republicans
are apparently unaware of the Logan Act, passed
in 1799 and amended in 1994. For those who require
a United States Constitution refresher course,
ONLY the President of the United States has the
duly constituted authority to act on behalf of the
U.S. in negotiations with other nations, period.
Consult Article II if you doubt the Logan Act (or me).
These 47 super conservative republican U.S. senators
are obviously very close pals with U.S. House
Speaker John Boehner, another embarrassment
to the country at large and moderate republicans
everywhere. Some learned authorities regard
the sending of this letter to be treason, others
merely view the matter as a felonious imbroglio.
--How I hope our president hurls every legal,
public relations/media maneuver at his disposal,
aiming squarely at these upstarts--immediately!
This is NO TIME to act relaxed, natural, etc.
Please, Mr. Obama, forget your concern
about appearing as "an angry black man".
Meanwhile, "the 47" think they have more
power than a sitting president--how I'll
howl when they are brought up short,
to rue the day they did this deed.
