Iran nuke deal 'breathtaking' says one Senator who surrendered treaty powers to Obama

So now, after Corker and Graham led the way in the name of bipartisanship to hand over Congress's treaty powers to this imperial president, with Boehner & McConnell's seal of approval no less, Sen. Corker is finally realizing how impossible it is for the Senate to stop any Iran deal because of how much power they've granted Obama. As Levin explained yesterday, 'The vote process ensures Obama gets whatever deal he wants, and we have Corker to blame.'
TheHill: The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is sounding the alarm about the nuclear talks with Iran, warning the United States has made "breathtaking" concessions that risk creating a "bad deal."

In a letter sent Monday, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) warned President Obama he must be willing to walk away from the negotiating table.

"It is breathtaking to see how far from your original goals and statements the P5+1 have come during negotiations with Iran,” Corker (R-Tenn.) said in the letter, referring to a group that includes the U.S., the United Kingdom, China, France, and Russia plus Germany.

Corker said negotiators “have moved” from trying to strike a 20-year agreement to a 10-year one and seem ready to let Tehran continue to develop its ballistic missile effort and maintain research and development for advanced nuclear centrifuges.

“I understand the dynamics that can develop when a group believes they are close to a deal and how your aides may view this as a major legacy accomplishment. However, as you know, the stakes here are incredibly high and the security implications of these negotiations are difficult to overstate,” Corker warned.

He asked Obama to “please pause and consider rethinking the entire approach. Walking away from a bad deal at this point would take courage, but it would be the best thing for the United States, the region and the world.”

Iran and the six world powers hope to strike a deal by June 30 that would curtail Tehran’s nuclear effort in exchange for sanctions relief.

The talks have come under withering criticism from GOP lawmakers and U.S. allies like Israel who believe a “bad deal” would empower the Iranian regime.
And now we learn that Obama and Kerry are arming Iran with nukes, and apparently there aren't any consequences to the Islamo-Nazi regime in Tehran cheating on the deal. Is anyone really surprised?
CNN: Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged Tuesday that the Iran nuclear deal most likely won't require the country to detail suspected past efforts to develop a nuclear weapon, a concession sought by Tehran.

"We are not fixated on Iran specifically accounting for what they did at one point in time or another," Kerry told reporters Tuesday by remote video from Boston, where he has been recuperating from a broken leg.

"We know what they did," Kerry added. "We have no doubt. We have absolute knowledge with respect to the certain military activities they are engaged in. What we are concerned about is going forward."

His comments downplayed a long-standing demand by world powers that Iran come clean about any past efforts to develop a military dimension to its nuclear program. U.S. officials and European diplomats previously pledged that sanctions relief would be tied to Iran answering lingering questions from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog.

The United States and five other world powers are negotiating with Iran to curb the country's nuclear program and keep it from building a nuclear bomb, though Iran insists that its nuclear program is peaceful.
See, RINOs like Corker, along with much of the GOP leadership, want to show how they can 'govern' in a 'bipartisan' way, when all they've effectively done is surrendered their treaty powers to Obama...and as Levin shares with us tonight, astonishingly, Sen. Corker is just now realizing how foolish of a move it was. Why the hell do we keep electing these people?
