"Though I greatly respect the office of the President, I too have grown weary at the timidity. While other world leaders have come to the forefront, our President continues to be defensive, at best."

Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"I know how it feels not to like the policies of a President. I get it. But don’t overdo it and make it so personal. Get on with it. Grow up. Do your job. Have respect for the Office of the President. Don’t suddenly say Executive orders are bad when the President you don’t like does it, but you don’t say one word when a Republican President does the same thing. It doesn’t pass the smell test."
Prime Minister Netanyahu’S Invitation To Speak To A Joint Session Of Congress February 11, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Finally, there is the issue of respect for the Office of the President and the responsibility to conduct foreign policy. I can’t imagine what the reaction would have been if Speaker Nancy Pelosi had offered French President Sarkozy an opportunity to lecture Republicans and George Bush about our disastrous policy in Iraq. Republicans would have been apoplectic."
Diplomatic Protocols February 10, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"This is a fundamental violation of our national unity on foreign policy. Our Constitution assigns the office of the President the right and responsibility to negotiate with foreign governments."
