"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.
Vice President Joe Biden slammed the letter in a statement earlier this week, describing it as being "beneath the dignity of an institution I revere."
A HuffPost/YouGov poll found Americans are more likely than not to say it was inappropriate for GOP senators to send the letter
Our liberal president is sending baddies to come get you. 9/11 was, like, so early 21st century and Obama's all like "I don't care, he blew up our buildings". I know, totally gay, right? Anyway, just hide really well next week.
A bipartisan majority of House lawmakers have written a letter to President Obama backing up the letter 47 GOP senators controversially addressed to Iran on Monday with dire warnings about the impending nuke deal. Some 250 members had signed the House letter by Friday afternoon, a clear majority of the chamber.

Now Obama knows how the country feels about him being our President, except embarrassed doesn't even adequately convey the shame.
I call Obozo the "double-down" gambler:
• Iran turns down his nuke delay deal, Obozo "double-down's" and goes to the UN with his failed plan instead of working on tougher sanctions.
• His 2012 re-election team tells him his promise of $2500 reduction in policy is impossible and recommends he admit the real cost, Obozo "double-down's" says no we will deal with it later... in seven years!
I could go on and on with examples because never once has he said "okay, let's work together on a solution".
"I'm embarrassed" indeed Obozo indeed...
