For signing that letter.  That was a boneheaded move for someone who claims to be a Constitutional purist.

I have seen a lot about this letter.  Can someone explain what makes it unconstitutional and treasonous (as I have seen elsewhere)?

I haven't seen the treasonous angle yet, but I suspect that's relegated to partisans. As for constitutionality, the basic argument is they're interfering with the President's authority to conduct foreign policy and negotiate treaties.

Apparently, the letter itself contained a constitutional error when it said the Senate ratifies treaties (Source).

That aside, the letter likely undermined any cover such negotiations and possible treaty gave to moderates in Iran.

I hate to tell you this, Queshank, but Rand Paul is a politician, and that never saves anyone from doing something boneheaded.  He puts his pants on just like all the other politicians do.

Any Libs disappointed in Obama?

How Barack Obama Undercut Bush Administration’s Nuclear Negotiations With Iran

During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.
