And now some more nonsense from Texas other favorite shit kicker, Senator John Cornyn (R. TX):

Senate minority whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) made waves on Twitter Saturday night when he posted the following: "Amazing what WH will do to distract attention from O-care."
The posting came just after the announcement of an agreement between Iran and six other nations, including the United States, to limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for easing sanctions on the Islamic republic. According to Politico, Cornyn has argued for stricter sanctions against Iran.

Cornyn is one of several Republicans who have criticized the deal, but he is (so far) the first to link negotiations with Iran to the problems with the rollout of and the Affordable Care Act. -, 11/24/13

Here's some more details about Obama's deal:

President Obama later unveiled details of the agreement, saying, "simply put, they cut off Iran’s most likely paths to a bomb."

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also weighed in on the agreement, tweeting, "Unless the agreement requires dismantling of the Iranian centrifuges, we really haven't gained anything."

As part of the deal, the U.S. would provide $6 to $7 billion in sanctions relief and in exchange, Iran would agree to stop enriching uranium beyond a 5% level — meaning they would have to dismantle the links between networks of centrifuges, according to The New York Times. - Business Insider, 11/23/13

Don't worry, David Plouffe went to Twitter and made a clown out of Cornyn:
Well Tweeted.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
