The Jewish constituency will not forgive him if he decides to go along with the president. Deep down in his heart, he realizes that supporting the deal is in the best interest of the American people. He also, knows that the Iran deal will stand the test of time. Somehow I get the impression that the New York senator will not vote for overriding the President’s veto if the Republican congress heads to that path.

The truth is, President Obama will visit Tehran to normalize diplomatic relation before he exits the Oval Office to the same extent he did with Cuba even though he sent Kerry to hoist the flag in Havana.America always acknowledges the hard fact of life. At the end of day, going to war with Iran is going to war with Russia and China. Americans get that, big mouth Bibi does not.

Stop Iran through more military action you say. Why don’t you enlist first and also donate every last dollar of your savings to fund this war?

Mind-numbing ‘Murica! slogans sure are easy to spout when you’re not the one on the frontlines.

Actually that started with GW Bush and Cheney. They drove America into the diplomatic toilet, and the only people grateful to that administration are ISIS, who now has a free home in Iraq. (at the cost of 3 trillion U.S. taxpayer dollars).

GOP = failure.

Israelis are destroying US credibility around the world, as they have done to themselves. Without US pressure no sane government or people would support the Israel.

How much longer will Americans be willing to support the bellicose leadership of Israel or the desires of a bunch of old Cubans in Miami?

Let Iran have their bomb, because this administration is unable and unwilling to stop them. Warm up the ovens.

That’s the sole unyielding principle behind surviving in this ever-changing world. One needs to be fluid like water in order to advance to the next era or risk dying off.

This country is already financially burdened to the point that we can no longer absorb the cost of fighting wars every decade, however small. It’s like a middle class family with 80k income while saddled with a 300k mortgage, 20k car loan and 10k in credit card debt yet still dreaming of taking a 10k family vacation every year. The math simply does, not, work.

His stance is nonsensical and disgraceful. This is politics at its worst.

The U.S. is no longer viewed as a strong and reliable partner around the globe. They are no longer respected or trusted by most countries and the allies that they think they have are only such because of the aid/money they give them.
