BREAKING: Obama gets Iran nuke deal victory


The NY Post/AP:

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama secured a landmark foreign policy victory Wednesday as Senate Democrats amassed enough votes to ensure the Iran nuclear deal survives in Congress despite ferocious opposition from Republicans and the government of Israel.

Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became the crucial 34th vote in favor of the agreement.

“No deal is perfect, especially one negotiated with the Iranian regime,” Mikulski said in a statement. She called the accord “the best option available to block Iran from having a nuclear bomb. For these reasons, I will vote in favor of this deal.”

    The Democrats had a choice between war and dishonor. They chose dishonor. Now we shall have war.

      What I hope happens, is that the Senate votes with a majority against the deal, the Congress votes with a majority against the deal, then Obama overrides it to makes it law, and then Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gets his front people/politicians in Iran to vote it down and blame it all on the Americans.

      Obama’s and Kerry’s actions have already allowed the Europeans to end the sanctions, so at least Obama would look like an idiot and it would give those not in the pockets of the Persians to demand even stronger sanctions and use it as an election issue.

      With the sanctions already effectively broken, what more is there for the Ayatollah to gain, except to embarrass the US administration?

    From this point forward, every Israeli who dies as a result, either directly or indirectly, of Iranian terrorism or an Iranian attack on Israel, was murdered by Obama and the United States Democrats who voted for this deal. All Israeli blood from this day forward is on Obama’s hands.

    I hope the first one goes off on the White House lawn.
