McConnell Shamefully Poses With Netanyahu As Deal Deadline Nears
[su_right_ad]Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell finds himself in Israel siding with Benjamin Netanyahu as the deadline for an Iran nuclear agreement nears. What a coincidence!
With a Tuesday deadline approaching for Iran, the Obama administration, and five other world powers to strike a deal to stem the Tehran government’s nuclear program, congressional Republicans Sunday ratcheted up pressure against the yet-to-be completed pact.
On a Sunday news show and in a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, House and Senate Republican leaders said they intend to move forward with a bill to require the White House to get congressional approval on any Iranian nuclear deal.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on a visit to Israel, stood beside Netanyahu Sunday and listened as the recently-re-elected prime minister sharply criticized the deal being negotiated in Lausanne, Switzerland.
“The group who are here share your concerns about this potential agreement,” McConnell responded in a video released by the Israeli government. “The option if there is an agreement is a bill that we intend to vote on that enjoys bipartisan support to require that agreement to come to Congress for approval. If there’s no deal then the view of this group, similar to you own, is that ratcheting up sanctions might be the best direction in the wake of a deal that does not come together.”
Republicans used to cry, “Foreign policy ends at the water’s edge!” But that’s when they were in charge of foreign policy.[su_facebook]

Look at Mitch in that picture. What a tool. You just know he’s saying something like, “So y’all REALLY don’t eat bacon? That’s wild, man.”

That pic would make a great illustration for the Aesop’s Fable “The Turtle and The Snake.”

i wish there was some way to ban him from returning. He is so useless besides being a lying cheating hypocrite. In other words, a Republican

Two traitors Boehner and McConnell openly supporting a foreign government over that of their own government which they took an oath to protect and defend, which they’re not protecting and not defending.
