Dems flip out over GOP letter to Iran; Blaring headline calls US senators TRAITORS

Democrat leaders and the liberal media have lost their collective minds over a letter sent by 47 Republicans to Iranian leadership explaining that for any nuclear deal to be effective it must be approved by the Senate.

The New York Daily News slammed the Republicans with a blaring headline calling them “Traitors.”

“THE NEWS SAYS: These 47 Republican U.S. senators have engaged in treachery,” the News wrote on its Twitter account releasing the cover early Monday morning.

Vice President Joe Biden also slammed the letter Monday, saying in a statement it “offends me as a matter of principle” and is “beneath the dignity of an institution I revere.”

“In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which senators wrote directly to advise another country — much less a longtime foreign adversary — that the president does not have the constitutional authority to reach a meaningful understanding with them,” Biden wrote.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid also slammed the Republicans on the Senate floor Monday.

“The judgment of my Republican colleagues seems to be clouded by their abhorrence of President Obama,” he said. “It’s unprecedented for one political party to directly intervene in an international negotiation with the sole goal of embarrassing the president of the United States.”

Senator Dick Durbin chimed in with his commentary and hilariously paused and stopped himself from saying the word “God.”

“I can’t think of a precedent where you have had one political party in the United States Senate try to intervene in international Negotiations,” he said. “In this situation, if these negotiations fail, its pretty clear to me that one of the options on the horizon is military action against Iran. I pray to — goodness that we never reach that point.”

You pray to goodness?

Of course, many in the Twitterverse fired back at the rhetoric.
