If these Senators really think they can dodge this mess or play "Blame Obama" with it, they really are delusional. Some are already blaming Netanyahu for rabble rousing and pointing at Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) as a scapegoat for writing the letter.
Far-right wingnuts have come out of the woodwork to support Tom Cotton and the rest, while Tom Cotton tries to 'splain what they were doing.
Lesson for hand-wringing & brow-furrowing conservatives: Bibi & Cotton are the ones who've put the Administration on the defensive on Iran.

@BillKristol oh please. A neo-con man like you talking about about McCarthyism? That's rich.

Bill Kristol tells me: He discussed the Iran letter with Sen. Cotton as it was being prepared, but did not help draft/edit anything— Tim Mak (@timkmak) March 11, 2015
The fact that the Cotton letter is backfiring so spectacularly strongly suggests that the idea originated with Bill Kristol.
