WITH FRIENDS LIKE THIS WHO NEEDS ENEMIES?

What happened to putting your country first? What has happened to this country when it's elected representatives who have sworn to protect and defend the nation violate the very principles for which it stands? To undermine the leader and Commander in Chief rather than support him in deliberately trying to sabotage his his efforts to protect this country. And, for no other reason that to satiate their hatred (and racism) of the man who holds the office. 

Angry Democrats on Tuesday excoriated the open letter sent to Iran’s leadership warning about a nuclear agreement with President Obama, but the 47 Republicans who signed it remained defiant and unapologetic, saying the president should have seen their opposition coming.

The recriminations from Democrats threatened to unravel the bipartisan coalition that had been building to oppose a deal, though Democrats also confronted the choice between challenging Tehran and rallying behind the president.

“I think Republicans have made it harder for us to approach this in a careful and bipartisan way,” said Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat of Virginia, who has led his party’s push for congressional review of the administration’s policies on war and sanctions, and sponsored a bill that would allow Congress to review any removal of congressionally imposed sanctions against Iran.
