    It’s not about the right thing, it’s about making sure Obama is looked as a problem so the GOP can hold onto the hearts of their blinkered genuflectors to keep top marginal rates down for the .01%

    Any American with more than two functioning brain cells support this deal. The alternative is invasion and occupation of Iran like we did with Iraq. There are some people who in support of Israel and/or the military industrial complex want america to be universally hated and in perpetual war with the Arabs – but are you a real American if the interest of your country is subservient to the interests of other entities?
