Dear Mr. President: Stop coddling traitors!

Sorry, Mr. President. What the Republicans have done deserves a stronger response than “embarrassment.” They have committed treason. Please, President Obama, stop coddling traitors.

President Barack Obama said he’s “embarrassed” for the group of Republicans who sent a letter to Iran warning against a nuclear deal with the United States.

“I’m embarrassed for them,” Obama told Vice. “For them to address a letter to the ayatollah — the supreme leader of Iran, who they claim is our mortal enemy — and their basic argument to them is: don’t deal with our president, because you can’t trust him to follow through on an agreement… That’s close to unprecedented.”

A total of 47 senators signed the letter, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.). Several other Republicans threw their support behind the letter, including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, both considered potential contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential primary.
