The Most Dishonest Argument for the Iran Deal

We already know that President Obama will do and say just about anything in order to pressure Democrats to vote for his Iran nuclear deal. He’s smeared Jewish groups, falsely argued that only Israel is against it, and disingenuously accused Republicans of opposing itfor partisan reasons when it was he that destroyed the bipartisan consensus on Iran by pressuring Democrats to back the deal out of party loyalty. The administration has also consistently misled Congress and the public about the nature of the deal and the way it preserves Tehran’s nuclear infrastructure and right to continue advanced research that will give it a bomb virtually the moment the pact expires in a decade. But the most dishonest argument it has deployed to win over skeptics is the one highlight today in Politico. According to Michael Crowley’s feature, “the ultimate argument in favor of the Iran deal” is that “it would make it easier to bomb Iran.” Believe it or not, that’s actually what the administration is telling members of Congress this week. The question is whether there can be any member of Congress stupid enough to buy it?

    There was a clip of President Obama speaking in support of his “deal” (surrender is a more appropriate word). The clip showed Obama, with a straight face, stating that, “as a result of this deal, Iran will no longer have the capability to make a nuclear bomb”. And liberals, needless to say, buy into this bald-faced lie. Obama has the ability to make straight-out lies, with a straight face. Unbelievable.

      Actually for the poser in chief lying is a natural function and it is difficult for him NOT to lie.

        To be a good politician you don’t have to believe your own lies you’ve just got to pretend you believe them.

    “The question is whether there can be any member of congress stupid enough to buy it.”

    He’s gotta be kidding.

      GMTA, I was going to say the list of those not that stupid would be a much shorter list.

  • Obama is doing his best taqiyya act. And he is doing a damn good job.

    Look at all the dems. They have bought Obama’s line of BS, hook, line, and sinker.

    For God’s sake, how many terrorist attacks does Iran get to make before the democrats admit Iran is a terrorist state? Obama’s constant spewing of taqiyya has the dems just where he wants them.

    I use to thing the dems were a bit soft on reality. I now consider them a threat to my safety. They are willing to follow the head Muslim lemming over the cliff.
