    question.

    Why didn't the Obama admin know Congress was planning even stiffer sanctions?  And, did they not even consult with Congress on this new deal with Iran?

    Not only does the country look foolish on the international stage, this squabble between the President and (mostly) his own party in Congress has emboldened Iran to push for even more concessions.

    And all this happens while Iran, reportedly, is jointly developing long range missiles with North Korea.

    We've been down this same road before - with with North Korea.  We lifted sanctions in exchange for their promise of abandoning nuclear weapons.  What did we get? A nuclear North Korea.  Does history teach us nothing?

      North Korea (a) already had nukes and (b) did not build any more nukes until (c) the Bush administration blew up the agreement and the North Koreans reactivated the plutonium processing plant.

      You're repeating right wing lying points, which might be welcome on any Sunday talk show, but they aren't going to fly here.

      Politics means controlling the balance of economic and institutional power. Everything else is naming post offices.
