In a speech at American University in Washington, Obama warned his audience that failure to pass his nuclear arrangement with Iran would put the United States on the path to another Mideast war:
“The choice we face is ultimately between diplomacy and some form of war. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not three months from now, but soon.”
Obama also drew a parallel between Republicans who opposed the deal to that of Iranian hardliners who have called for “death to America.”
“In fact, it’s those hardliners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hardliners chanting ‘death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus.”
Imagine what would have happened if Bush had said that Democrats were caucusing with Saddam Hussein?

In a bit of irony during his speech, the Healer of the World also criticized those who oppose him for looking at the issue through the tint of politically motivated glasses. And as we all know, Barry is clearly above playing politics.
According to the Appeaser-in-Chief, his deal with Iran is so perfect that their appears to be only one nation out of 196 who oppose his great wisdom — the nation of Israel. And in a private meeting with Jewish leaders, he resorted to the same type of fear-mongering he often accuses Republicans of using when he told them that if this deal failed to be ratified, Iranian rockets would rain down on Tel Aviv. Apparently, Barry hasn’t had much time to watch the TV—the only way he finds out about things he did wrong—because if he did, he would know that Hezbollah (funded by Iran) already rains rockets on Israel.
John Kerry was also
educating lying to Americans about why this is so awesome. In an interview with The Atlantic, he shared how rejecting the arrangement with Iran would increase the likelihood of war against Israel:
“The ayatollah constantly believed that we are untrustworthy, that you can’t negotiate with us, that we will screw them. This —’a congressional rejection’— will be the ultimate screwing.”
Well, besides his disturbing obsession with the word “screw,” Kerry’s also shared how he was most concerned about how rejecting the Iran nuclear deal would alienate the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Yeah, I’m really worried about hurting the feelings of the murdering madman leader of the country that serves as the home base of terrorism around the world.
In the end, thanks to the Bob Corker bill surrendering the Senate’s constitutional power to approve treaties, this is most likely a done deal. But I think it’s important to know that the Obama administration is more concerned about alienating a terrorist than he is protecting the best interests of America.
And if you’re a Republican who opposes him? You’re no better than a terrorist.
