Congress didn't 'buy' @rhodes44 lies either - they looked to him for cover
In a comment to this post, Nancy B writes, "Quite disturbing that so many in Congress bought this fiction hook, line and sinker!"
They didn't buy it. The Republicans opposed the Iran deal up and down the line. The Democrats were willing to do anything - anything - to avoid voting against their President. They were looking to avoid rocking the boat without risking the destruction of their careers. They were looking for cover for not opposing Obama. Rhodes provided it.
