Here's a historical reminder for the Republican Party, ex-future Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer, eight administrative district (of the State of Israel) activists, and those others who oppose the #IranDeal :
When President Abraham Lincoln (R-Illinois) issued the Emancipation Proclamation on 1 January 1862, freeing all slaves in territory recovered from the rebellious Confederacy from that time forward, that was an executive action, just like President Obama’s agreement with Iran.
So, to the argument of no precedent, I reply, Kiss my shiny pale ass (but wear sunglasses or you may go blind from the reflected glare).
Of course, given this present mutant state of the GOP, its members would no doubt like to repeal the Emancipation Proclamation as well as the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. You are not “patriots”; you are traitors.
As several venues have pointed out, including numerous satirical comedians and websites, the hardliners in both countries together oppose the deal, which is a good reason to favor it. Yea, yea, Booboo and his crowd oppose it too, but they don't get a vote. Not unless the Republican Congress (and ex-future Minority Leader Schumer) grants a veto to the head-of-government of a foreign country, in which case they should all be tried for treason.
