Skip to comments.Iranian aggression since Obama nuclear deal looms as 2016 headache for Democrats
Posted on 10/26/2015 5:21:17 PM PDT by 100American
President Obamas gamble that a nuclear deal would lead to a more responsible Iran has already failed, Mr. Boehner said. This sham of a trial violated every international standard and made a mockery of Irans own legal system. Senate Republicans, joined by four Democrats, approved a resolution of disapproval Sept. 10 by 58-42 but were unable to muster the 60 votes needed to override President Obamas veto. The advocacy group J Street, which ran ads in favor of the nuclear deal leading up to the Senate vote, agreed that the ICBM test was a gratuitous violation of a U.N. Security Council Resolution but insisted that it did not breach the JCPOA itself. Its not surprising that groups who oppose the JCPOA are seeking to cast every instance of Iranian bad behavior as a violation of it, said J Street Vice President of Government Affairs Dylan Williams. It would be much better for U.S. and Israeli security if those still hoping to kill the deal pivoted to working with the U.S. government to ensure its strict implementation.

Oh I don’t think the democrats are worried - if an establishment squish gets the nomination the worst they’ll get from the republicans are expressions of “concern”.
Repubs already gave in when they agreed that it would take 60 votes to over-ride the treaty, instead of following the constitution where it requires two-thirds vote to approve it.
Boehner is a fraud, and so are most of the Repubs in office. This similar to the TPP, where they have agreed in advance the same thing, it takes a super-majority to override rather than requiring a super-majority to approve.
Frauds, every one of them.
I think he was against it before he was considering it then spewing garbage and then cutting a deal
