He Whines A Lot When He Gets Outplayed At His Own Game

For someone who has thrown the Constitution to the wind and believes he has the power to do as he wants, Barack Obama sure whines a lot when his game is played by others as well as he perceives he himself does...
"A group of 47 Republicans senators Monday sent an open letter to Iranian leaders, warning them that any deal struck with President Obama won’t last once he leaves office. The U.S. and its international partners continue to seek a deal to halt Iran’s nuclear weapons program but many members of Congress are skeptical of the negotiations and believe Tehran would not live up to the terms of any final agreement." - WT
In Case “Constitutional Expert” Obama Forgot, He Can’t Negotiate Iran Treaty Alone
(See Article 2, Section 2, Clause 2)

Greta Van Susteren noted Friday that both she and Barack Obama attended and taught at law schools and both studied the same United States Constitution. She offers him a refresher in recognition of his failure of act in accordance with its mandates.
“Article 2, section 2, clause 2 includes the treaty clause, which empowers the President to propose and negotiate agreements between the United States and other nations, which become treaties afteray, yes after, the advice and consent of a super-majority of the U.S. Senate.”
 “That means the ‘president’ has no power to make a deal solely with Iran, solely alone, he can’t do that. Presidents are not kings, they’re not dictators, and under our Constitution the President of the United States has broad powers but by no means absolute powers.”
“So why does the White House not want Congress to vote on a deal with Iran?  Here’s press secretary Josh Earnest had to say: 
“Ultimately we can’t put in place and additional hurdle for that agreement to overcome here at the eleventh hour.” 
“Hurdle? That clause is not a hurdle. Josh Earnest may think it trivial, I don’t.  It’s the Constitution, to be respected and adhered to. Any deal with Iran, good, bad or indifferent impacts the world and impacts generations.  So none of that slippery stuff about the ‘president’ going alone and any deal between the United States and Iran must go to the United States Senate for advice and consent. That is what the Constitution says, and if the ‘president’ doesn’t believe me he should look it up; article 2, section 2, clause 2.”
