Rachel Maddow continues her righteous assault on GOP Senators endangering the country
Rachel Maddow will not let up. She must not let up. Never in American history was a President’s foreign policy negotiations undermined by Senators as they did this week with the letter they sent to Iran in the attempt to scuttle nuclear negotiations.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune,
Chances are that the foolish, dangerous and arguably felonious attempt by the Obama Derangement Caucus of the Senate will soon be forgotten. Unless, as President Obama himself muttered the other day, the Senate Republicans make common cause with the hard-liners in Iran to push the region, and the world, that much closer to nuclear war.
The following forty seven Republicans senators put our citizens at risk.
Richard Shelby (AL), Jeff Sessions (AL), Dan Sullivan (AK), John McCain (AZ.), John Boozman (AR), Tom Cotton (AR), Cory Gardner (CO), Marco Rubio (FL), Johnny Isakson (GA), David Perdue (GA), Mike Crapo (ID), Jim Risch (ID), Mark Kirk (IL), Chuck Grassley (IA), Joni Ernst (IA), Pat Roberts (KS), Jerry Moran (KS), Mitch McConnell (KY), Rand Paul (KY), David Vitter (LA), Bill Cassidy (LA), Roger Wicker (MS), Roy Blunt (MO), Steve Daines (MT), Deb Fischer (NE), Ben Sasse (NE), Dean Heller (NV), Kelly Ayotte (NH), Richard Burr (NC), Thom Tillis (NC), John Hoeven (ND), Rob Portman (OH), Jim Inhofe (OK), James Lankford (OK), Pat Toomey (PA), Lindsey Graham (SC), Tim Scott (SC), John Thune (SD), Mike Rounds (SD), John Cornyn (TX), Ted Cruz (TX), Orin Hatch (UT), Mike Lee (UT), Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Ron Johnson (WI), Mike Enzi (WY), John Barrasso (WY).
There were seven Republicans who remembered that partisanship stops at our shores’ end. They were more serious than those that would risk war and the nation’s treasure for temporary political gain. These seven Republicans must be commended.
Lisa Murkowski (AK), Jeff Flake (AZ), Daniel Coats (IN), Susan Collins (ME), Thad Cochran (MS), Lamar Alexander (TN), and Bob Corker (TN).
