Questioning Patriotism All the Rage Again

Posted by on Mar 10, 2015 at 7:56 am

We’re so old we remember how un-American it was to question someone’s patriotism. Now all you have to do is upset the baby in the White House and you’re a traitor.

Hysterical much, people?

Regardless of President Obama’s fecklessness in negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran, 47 Republican U.S. senators engaged in treachery by sending a letter to the mullahs aimed at cutting the legs out from under America’s commander-in-chief.

So they admit Obama’s feckless and in over his head, but the responsible people trying to do something about it are engaged in treachery. Um, OK.

We join GOP signatories in opposing the pact as outlined, but we strenuously condemn their betrayal of the U.S. constitutional system.

Because if there’s anyone who respects the Constitution, it’s Obama, right?

The participants represented the bulk of the Republicans’ 54-member senatorial majority, vesting their petulant, condescending stunt with the coloration of an institutional foreign policy statement.

They are an embarrassment to the Senate and to the nation.

Seriously? An embarrassment to the nation? Have they checked who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue lately?

A future President, they wrote, “could revoke” any deal not approved by Congress “with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”

All true, and unquestionably not news to Iran’s leaders, who may be murderous zealots, but are by no means morons.

Correct. Obama is the leader of the morons.

While the Democrats would be grossly wrong to prevent congressional oversight of an agreement that promises to reshape the balance of power in the Middle East and endanger Israel, the process should play out as envisioned by the Founding Fathers, not as executed by faith-breaking frauds.

It’s almost as if it’s the GOP is willing to allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon without any oversight. A total lack of self-awareness, folks. One tweet is all you need to expose the rank hypocrisy:
