Iran from bad to worse

GOP Failure Theater: the Iran nuclear vote, Cruz-Rubio edition

By: streiff (Diary) — May 8th, 2015 | Red State

Failure Theater. When the GOP talks a good game about opposing Obama’s policies but, in fact, vote to go along with them.

Yesterday the US Senate voted 98-1 to go along with whatever Barack Obama decides to give to Iran. Though the feckless Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) has portrayed it as a successful “bipartisan” bill, part of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)‘s erotic dream of “governing”, in fact it is a huge defeat for our Constitution. By turning the treaty process on its head, by giving Obama carte-blanche to do as he will unless Congress can muster the necessary 2/3 vote to abrogate his actions, the GOP has effectively taken the Congress out of any role in shaping US foreign policy.

This bill, thanks to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)‘s bipartisanship fetish did not even require the Iran cease supporting terrorist attacks on Americans. Nope, reasoned the addled Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and the big brain types in the GOP leadership, requiring Iran to forego terrorism before we help them get a nuke was just too much. Obama would never stand for it.

So much for strategy. And Obama is running around complaining about the Republicans? Incomprehensible chaos. Maybe Iran could nickname its program “bipartisan”?

    Wow! How disappointing and disgusting is this! I have to say I’m shocked beyond belief what they have done. And the so called “conservative Cruz” goes along with this! This really should change a lot of minds about Cruz but I saw in the comment section people saying they are still going to vote for Cruz. HUH? Vote for him why???????????

    Righto! How can Barack Hussein Obama complain about the Republicans when they do all they can to support every last dangerous thing he does? This is simply astounding.

    Beats me Bull, how O has a problem with the Senate when they do something like your article explains. I swear there is no difference between the two parties and I sure wish we could flush them all out.

    Today I’m voting for my rep, Andy Barr’s contender.Roger Brill. Andy Barr has a D rating as a conservative. It’s probably a small chance to kick him out, but he is one that needs to go. We have to clean house when we have the chance.And I’ll do my part today.

    Rand Paul is of course up for re-election and we do need to keep him. Got a new district guy to vote for too and he’s a really good guy as I talked to his wife during the caucus. He stands for all conservative values. We used to have a dem but he stepped down paving the way for a repub with good family values. i hope people vote for this guy. He stands for everything a conservative would want,

    Of course it’s up to us to keep watch that these guys do what we want them to do.

      I know what you mean. Well, good luck on that attempt. It seems once they are in they are hard to get out. It takes a real effort is all I’m saying.

      I’d say there is a difference only in that Dems are more conniving and deceptive by nature than the Repubs. But as you say there is little difference between the mission of the two.

    Bull I’m damn tired of hearing the GOP elites use the talking point, “they can’t do anything until we have a Repuke president.” That’s just bull shit. Their go along policy simply means they are not doing the job we sent them to do for us.

    This further illustrates why those rat bastard elites do not want Trump in our WH. They’d rather go along with a traitor to keep their nest feathered than someone we all hope turns Dipshit City on its head.

      You’re so right Dave. I’d like to see their definition of anything.

      Yep don’t make any waves for the traitors, why make it harder to do what they do or hold them accountable? Well, and they call Trump a reality show, uh? If it involves crapping all over the American people (citizens) then they are all for it.

        Bull I keep hearing Ryan and his ilk say they’ve been working on “great” legislation with conservative values, but what the hell have they rolled out and sent to a vote?

        I’ve always believed and stated each part of the gov should do “their” job and to hell with worrying about what the next part of gov will do. That would have been like me telling order pickers not to pick orders, because the shippers couldn’t ship orders today due to the computer being down. I’ll let you guess how that conversation would have went. Apparently so horribly for pickers that I never ran into that.

        Do your f*cking job congress and let Barry worry about his job. How the hell are we supposed to even have a clue what the GOP congress wants to do, if they keep it a secret?? Jerks…

          I don’t know how much he has actually done since the country is still going to crap in a handbag anyway. I like that picker analogy. So what does it matter what he is doing?

          But their job is probably the last thing in their mind. They’re worried about the presidential elections. Maybe they should start worrying, Dave since I don’t think the president elects them, unless I missed something. Maybe we should also remind them when they get thrown out there is no arbitration. he he

          If they want a promotion for failure they should become Democrats.

    As far as I know at least Dave and I voted against Barr today. LOL! Well maybe we have to get the word out. Yeah, Barr will probably stay as you say because they are so hard to shove out.

              Well she has the nerve to even campaign into KY with her record and kill list. They’ll be celebrating now that she didn’t get killed there. She must be riding those pork belly futures again. Why does evil get lucky that way? But then she has no conscience so that is an asset to her.

              I think the only way she got the nerve to be here in KY was dragging her pervert husband around telling everyone slick Willie would be her economic policy director and he’d make sure he’d help the coal people. Ha, I don’t think anyone fell for that crap. They really think we are the dumbest bunch down here.

              She and Bill should thank their lucky evil stars she didn’t get shot here but they never went near Appalachia again. That’s where she’s really hated. And she only won by a hair against Bernie.

              I don’t know how these people get so lucky. It seems evil people do all the time and the good ones get the shaft. And of course she has no conscience.

              BTW, Bull I am sending this in response to the email notification.

              Well it can’t be much of a sigh of relief since she won in KY with a very small margin. She’s got to be feeling the Bern from that too. Sure she’s relieved but so few people came out to vote at all. I would look at that as an upcoming loss of KY in November.

              Let’s check the numbers. 17% came out to vote for the twin Dims today. In March 65% came out to vote for Trump and Cruz. I’d say she’s going to lose this state in November. The only reason she won the primary so big in the 2008 race here was because Dims thought she was better than O which isn’t saying much.
