Let's face it, the Iranian nuclear arms deal reached on Tuesday between the Islamic Republic Of Iran and the U.S., England, France, Germany, China & Russia is already being heralded as "epic".
It leaves in place the U.S. arms embargo and constrains Iran from further nuclear arms development for 10 years.
Additionally, Iran will have to allow for military inspections by the outside world at any site requested by the inspection team.
On the face of it, Iran is locked inside a bottle with regards to its nuclear program with all avenues of exit or escape sealed off completely.
But that won't stop Congress and John Boehner & Mitch McConnell & The GOP from finding "some" defect or loophole to justify outright rejection of this agreement.
The operative word here is "Agreement". This is not a treaty (which would require the approval of both houses of Congress). Instead, this deal is technically an "Agreement". Congress' role is limited to attempting to overriding a presidential veto and President Obama has already indicated he will definitely veto any legislative medling by Congress knowing full well that his veto will more than likely hold up as he only needs a handful of Senators to stand with him and deny the GOP the necessary 2/3 vote to override his veto.
Keystone Pipeline shot down by Obama.
A major climate agreement with China.
Gay Marriage upheld by the Supreme Court.
Obamacare upheld by the Supreme Court.
Re-establishment of relations with Cuba a reality, with the U.S. opening up an embassy in C>uba and Cuba doing likewise in the U.S.
AND, NOW THIS ---
A nuclear arms deal with one of the members of the "Axis Of Evil" - IRAN
The writing is on the wall. The GOP is in full retreat - 2016 will not be kind to them. They need to consider a full retrofit.
