WAIT a second …

Remember back in 2007 or so when Barack Obama was first running for president and his Republican detractors were saying he’d be fool for talking to the leaders in Iran if he was elected president?  Republicans were saying that opening a direct dialogue between the US president and Iranian leaders, as Obama said he might do, would be a bad idea as it would legitimize the actions of the Iranian leaders and confer them with a level of respect that Republicans felt was unwarranted.


Now Republicans feel not only is that kind of conversation a-okay but that going behind the back of the president and the Department of State is fine too!  Almost every Republican senator signed that nutty letter sent directly to Iranian leaders.


Even Mitt Romney got all worked up in 2012 because he felt Obama was too willing to “sit down for tea with our enemies”.
