Congressional pressure building on Obama as Iran talks drag out

by  |  published on July 2, 2015

The Obama administration’s decision to send Iranian nuclear talks into overtime is triggering a backlash on Capitol Hill, as congressional Republicans warn Tehran is exploiting the situation and moving the goalposts.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called on the administration to “press pause” on the discussions, after negotiators announced they would miss the June 30 deadline and extend talks another week.

“President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry should use the opportunity to pause negotiations, take a step back and re-examine the point of the talks in the first place,” McConnell wrote in an op-ed for Politico.

    Since when did this McConnell guy give a crap about these nuclear talks, the Mullahs are having their way with the narcissistic guy in the whitehouse, they must also be gay.
    All the rhetoric talk from the senate president guy, is just another cover his ass maneuver.
    Kentuckians, we owe you one for sending that socialist to congress again.
