Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal is encouraging all candidates -- Democrats and Republicans -- to sign the letter organized by Senator Tom Cotton warning that any Iran deal not accepted by Congress can be revoked.
I support "the letter sent by Senator Tom Cotton and his colleagues to Iran warning them that Congress will have to approve any nuclear deal," Jindal's statement reads.
According to Miles's Law, "where you stand depends on where you sit." And so when Vice President Joe Biden hyperventilates over Republican senators' criticism of the Obama administration's negotiations with Iran, we must take him with a grain of salt. He used to have a seat in the Senate; now he stands behind President Obama.
President Obama will wait until after a nuclear deal with Iran is made to make the case to the American people that it's the right thing to do. He made the comment today after being asked about this letter from nearly 50 U.S.
At a hearing this morning conducted by the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senator Tom Cotton, a war veteran, chided the Obama administration's justification to close the detention facility that has housed terrorism suspects since 2002. The administration's witness was Principal Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Brian McKeon, who defended President Obama's policy that the facility needs to be closed because it is a national security risk.
"Ted Cruz, by the way, is not a Harvard man. He’s Princeton,” [Prof. Harvey] Mansfield said. “Just going to Harvard Law School does not make you a Harvard Man. [Tom] Cotton is a Harvard man. [Ben] Sasse is, too. Elise Stefanik is a Harvard woman. The others are mere alumni.” (“Harvard’s Conservative Cabal Takes Congress,” Daily Beast, Dec. 17).
