Schumer’s opposition to Iran nuclear deal “signals the end of the Obama era”

While a record number of Americans were tuned in to the FOX News Republican debate, something noteworthy happened: Powerful and influential Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer came out against Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

It won’t stop the deal.

“How can a powerful Democrat’s opposition be a good sign? Because it suggests that Schumer has already calculated that the administration can do without his vote.”

    I don’t know about that. If Obama weren’t afraid that the deal would be voted down, he wouldn’t have compared the Republicans to Iran’s hard-liners. As it is, if the deal can only be sustained by a presidential veto against the wishes of the majority of Americans, the Democrats are in trouble.

    • Nah, it will go through, no matter what.

        I agree with you pessimistic prediction. There are powerful anti-Israel lobbies and media backing Obsma’s quisling appeasement.

    I disagree with Ezra. It’s a phoney show being put on by both the GOPe and the Dims pretending that they’re against okaying the treaty because they’re not going to get the 2/3 vote that the GOPe allowed to happen in the first place.

    • David Murrell

      Utter nonsnse. It is Obama and the appeasing Kerry who signed the deal. The Republicans to a person oppose the desl, but lack the numbers to overcome Obama’s veto.

    Schumer is pretending to oppose the Obama deal now, but the party will take care that there won’t be enough votes to override Hussein’s veto. The same thing happened during Bill Clinton’s trial. There were some Dems who voted for his conviction, but the party took care that their number was insufficient for a conviction.

    • Seems a very cynical game at play.

      My point has been that if Obama has to use his veto to enable the deal to go through against the wishes of the majority of Americans, the Democratic Party will have a serious problem.
