I suspect that the infamous letter from 47 members of the Republican party that was sent to Iran is the first time in American history that a freshman Senator, led the way in American foreign policy.This stunt was the brainchild of Senator Cotton of the great state of Arkansas. The essential argument of these Republicans is that President Obama, once again is “trampling the Constitution” by making executive decisions. Republican congressmen insist the actions of Barack Obama have never previously been employed by any real American president. Look at the record:
In 1975 Republican President Ford signed an executive agreement known as the Helsinki Accords without consent of the Senate.
In 1982 Republican President, St.Ronald Reagan signed the US-USSR Strategic Arms Reduction agreement.
In 1984, St. Ronald signed a Nuclear Agreement with COMMUNIST CHINA!
And so on and so on. Thousands of such presidential executive agreements have been made. Senator Rand Paul told Secretary of State John Kerry that President Obama was “trampling the Constitution”and we “want you to obey the law.”
If one is ignorant of history than one is simply ignorant.
