Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Montana’s junior U.S. Senator, Steve Daines, was one of the 47 senators who signed an open letter to Iran informing them that any agreement about nuclear weapons made by President Barack Obama would have to approved by Congress.
The 47 senators were all Republicans, so that basically tells us it was a political move – a “gotcha” move because of their hatred for Obama. On March 10, I wrote about this subject and said sending the letter was not the right thing to do. I also added that it’s important when we (the United States) are in diplomatic negotiations with other countries that we present a united front.
In today’s Billings Gazette, the editorial board has decided that “Daines was wrong on Iran letter” and they were pretty blunt about the reasons why.
