Skip to comments.Remember, McConnell is as responsible as Obama and Kerry for the failed Iran Deal
Posted on 05/08/2018 11:48:43 AM PDT by cotton1706
Mitch McConnell, as Majority Leader of the Senate, twisted the Treaty provision of the Constitution on its head to GET THAT DEAL THROUGH!
McConnell CREATED the provision whereby two-thirds of the Senate would need to DISSAPROVE of the deal in order to PREVENT the deal from becoming effective.
Instead of the Constitutional provision whereby two-thirds of the Senate would need to APPROVE of a treaty before it could become effective.
Pretzel McConnell!! Whatever it took to help Obama and his minions.
What McConnell did was invalid. There was no compliance with the Treaty Clause.
61% of Cognress voted against the Iran the deal. Obama did it by Executive fiat.
Don’t try to distract and deflect attention off the real authors of the disaster by manufacture a reason to whine about the GOP
You clowns are the best PR bots the DNC have with this idiotic habit
It wasnt a treaty and PRESIDENT Trump doesnt need the approval of Turtleman McConnell to withdraw from it.
The McConnell formula allowed Republicans to pass the Iran deal while pretending to oppose it. They could attack it in high dudgeon while safeguarding its passage.
Post Turtle...about like Obama
Didn’t Corker have a big hand in this? Who else? Some real Rino’s were really humping this garbage, not just the Turtle...
Because of his vote on that Corker bill he should NEVER be considered for SCOTUS.
But I detest McConnell and his gang.
This has been confirmed by Obama’s own State Department
Iran's governing body actually rejected the agreement and refused to ratify it , terming it an “insult” to Iran's sovereignty
All the deal did was provide President Obama political cover to end sanctions, release frozen Iranian assets and directly provide Iran with billions of dollars worth of untraceable hard currency
Which beckons the $64,000 question—will DJT submit any revised deal to the senate for 2/3s approval?
#3, please! Who wrote the legislation that allowed it?
None other than the RINO Bob Corker.
Question: Did the congress appropriate Obama’s $150 billion cash payment to Iran?
‘Politician bad joo-joo. Things better on escarpment. No politician there.’
Didnt have to as it was Obama money!
Yes, Corker was the tool who co-sponsored the bill, and was instrumental in getting it through.
Had the stupid SOB not withdrawn from politics earlier this year, I’d have worked like crazy to get him primaried. At least he did one thing right.
And speaking of Senate politics, although low-information USA voters undoubtedly dont see it this way, they owned a piece of the Iran deal through the ill-conceived 17th Amendment (17A) imo.
Patriots need to work with their state lawmakers in supporting Pres. Trump to lead the states to repeal 17A.
The 16th Amendment can disappear too.
It would have not been possible for Obama to get his Iran “deal” without the full cooperation of the Bush League Republicans.
Same as it would not have been possible for him to usurp the office he was ineligible to hold without their complete cooperation.
Not to mention that Cruz must also believe that Anwar Al-Awlaki’s kids born in Yemen to one citizen parent are eligible to be President if he believes he is.
That's what we thought back then, but now the question is "what were the Chinese to have gained by doing this?"
