How did the US Senate react to President Roosevelt's pledge to the League of Nations?

When US President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked the Senate to pass a resolution authorizing the President, at his discretion, to embargo arms shipments to aggressor nations, the Senate decided to amend the requested resolution. The Senate believed that if a president embargoed arms to an aggressor nation, it might involve the US in a war. The Senate therefore amended the resolution to embargo all nations should a dispute arise among both friendly and aggressive nations. This was a blow to his pledge to help the League of Nations.

It was the fact that the League of Nations were to be in the Treaty of Versailles. Since the U.S was isolationist, they didn't want ton involve themselves with the other nations. The 14 points just didn't make it any better for it to pass. It wasn't the opposition of the liberals and the conservatives.

Who were the irreconciables?

If you're talking about the "Irreconcilables"... Source: (I got this answer when I was studying for an essay from the "U.S. Department of State" website, the link listed above after 'Source'.) While the Treaty of Versailles did not present a peace agreement that satisfied all parties concerned, by the time President Woodrow Wilson returned to the United States in July 1919, American public opinion was overwhelming in favor of ratifying the treaty, including the Covenant of the League of Nations. Nevertheless, in spite of the fact that 32 state legislatures passed resolutions in favor of the treaty, there was intense opposition to it within the U.S. Senate. Senate opposition to the Treaty of Versailles cited Article 10 of the treaty, which dealt with collective security and the League of Nations. This article, opponents argued, ceded the war powers of the U.S. Government to the League's Council. The opposition came from two groups: the "Irreconcilables," who refused to join the League of Nations under any circumstances, and "Reservationists," led by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman, Henry Cabot Lodge, who were willing to ratify the treaty with amendments. Hope this answers your question.
