Yesterday, Senate Republicans, led by decorated war veteran Sen. Tom Cotton, penned an open letter to the Iranian government informing them that any agreement they reach with President Obama can be undone by future Presidents and Congresses. The letter has Jeff Flake upset and joining the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton lashing out Senate Republicans.
In an interview with AZ Republic’s Dan Nowicki Flake stated, “I just didn’t think it was appropriate… I’m not very bullish on the chance of these negotiations resulting in a good agreement, or an agreement at all, but we ought to explore it…We ought to give it every opportunity to succeed.”
Per the norm, this attack on Senate Republicans has earned the praise from Cafeteria Catholic AZ Republic columnist Ed Montini who labeled Flake ‘more mature’ than liberal Senator John McCain who was among the 47 Senators that signed Sen Cotton’s letter. Jeff Flake has officially crossed over to the ‘dark side’ and the fact that he’s now the media’s favorite Republican Senator is just confirmation of that.
2018 cannot come soon enough.
