The Differences Between The 47 GOP Senators' Iran Letter And Pelosi's 2007 Syria Visit
Media Matters for America yesterday demolished Republican attempts to compare Tom Cotton’s Iran letter to Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Syria in 2007.
Somehow, we are supposed to believe, Nancy Pelosi visiting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with full knowledge of the White House and State Department, is the same thing as attacking the president’s foreign policy [without telling the Executive Branch] by trying to undermine it with radicals in the other government, are the same thing.
93% of the 7,000 Americans polled by the Washington Post said the 47 Republican senators who tried to sabotage President Obama's efforts to negotiate an agreement went too far.
Went too far? How about went to the other side? Made common cause with the mullahs? That's more like what those saboteurs did.
And here's more information on their ring leader, Tehran Tom:
TeaPublicans still trying to put lipstick on their pig-letter.
Americans are totally disgusted with what they did.

And lastly, when you're a newly-minted, green-behind-the-ears GOP senator and have to explain to the world that you're "NOT A TRAITOR" to your country, it's a pretty good sign that you have lost what dreams you had of being a "Big. Important. Player." in anything to do with the U.S. government.
