Please, let us contact

Senator Bennet's office to ask him not
to sign on to the Corker bill. He is one of the
few Dems willing to do so, and this could be
the vote to override any POTUS veto.

He got into the Senate due to Obama's help,
perhaps it helps to remind him of that.

1. There is more than politics involved

 

I'm not sure we can get a good deal with Iran, and maybe the Dem Senators who are willing to override the president's veto on this know more than we do.

2. The President has access to the all the info from the State Dept., & the CIA -

and you think it's possible the Senators know more about the diplomatic and other situations than the President of the US?

The President, Sec. Kerry, and their staffs also confer with the major countries of the world, and you still believe the Senators know more about Iran and the Middle East than those mentioned above?

3. What I said was

 

they know more than WE do.

Every prez, SOS, other world leaders, etc. always know more about an ongoing situation than the people they represent, yet you would never advocate blindly following Booooosh, or probably any other R prez into whatever treaty/agreement/whatever they want.

Same thing here.

Every president can be wrong. Maybe this is a situation where scrutiny by many more people would be warranted.
