    Do you remember what was done to sailors who participated in a mutiny?

    I'm wondering why Obama doesn't use the letter as a negotiating point? "Hey, look. I've got 47 Senators here that are not happy with the way this treaty is shaping up. You've got to make some concessions so this treaty will hold up after I leave office."

    Have you read his letter. He offers nothing to use as a negotiation point. It is simply another Republican saying, "No," and offering nothing to discuss.

    Read the letter.

    Here's my letter.


    Dear Iranian hardliners.

    Obama is a liar. Ask his own people. Trust him and you're as foolish as they are.

    Sincerely;
    The Once-Great Satan.

    It was not treason or mutiny when Biden did the same thing to Reagan over a Russian Treaty. It was called the Biden Condition. Democrats can't even see their own hypocrisy.

    The Iranian negotiating team can surely see that the Republicans are not happy with the way the negotiations are going. It's implied. The letter could absolutely be used as negotiating leverage. The U.S. team could say, "If you want this agreement to last past January 2017, here are some changes that need to be implemented."

    BTW, I didn't see the Republicans saying "No" in that letter. I saw them pointing out how our Constitution works.

    Justifying a current mistake by a previous mistake is no justification.

    Oh, so the Democrats just now noticed that thirty years ago the Biden Condition was a violation of the Logan Act?

    I agree. I think, once again, a certain village crier has neglected to read before commenting.

    They must be improving. It only took six years to figure out what a steaming pile of fertilizer the A.C.A. is.


    I'm the optimist here, I guess.

    ...more likely they're saying, "These negotiations are popular back home, these guys have cooked their goose, don't worry about that letter".

    That's not the way he "negotiates". He makes all the concessions, especially to state sponsors of islamic terrorism. Like Iran.
