Las Vegas (Storch Report) — Perhaps President Obama was on vacation too long, putted too many times on the green or picked up some nasty words from watching Donald Trump on TV while he was on the campaign trail and returned to the fund raising scene with Sen. Harry Reid in Las Vegas yesterday and called those who are opposed to the Iran Nuclear Deal ‘Crazies’ including key Democrats such as New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.
When one is embroiled in the delusions of one’s own narcissism searching in the waning years of one’s last term as president for a legacy to place in a proposed Billion dollar presidential library in Chicago, the words do not flow as smoothly extemporaneously as they once did when reading off a Teleprompter.
The word was misguided, misplaced and walked back by the White House today, but was said and will not be forgotten for the sake of history.
The Nuclear Deal that Obama thinks is so great was conceived by the demented, harebrained and admitted by those that negotiated the deal that it was not based upon trust.
What ‘Crazy’ would negotiate a deal with a person or a country they didn’t trust?
The ‘crazies’ Obama was referring to are the opponents of the administration’s plan to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
That opposition group includes mostly Republicans, but also several key Democrats, such as New York Sen Schumer as well as New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez.
This is but the latest in a series of aggressive rhetorical attacks that oppose the nuclear pact for good reasons.
In a speech earlier this month, Obama compared Republicans to “hard-liners” within Iran such as the Revolutionary Guards and Quds forces, who oppose the nuclear deal.
“It’s those hard-liners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hard-liners chanting ‘Death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal,” Obama said in that speech. “They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus.”
Meanwhile, Obama in Las Vegas said, “It’s hard for me to express how much I love Harry Reid,” Obama said of the 75-year-old senator at the Monday fundraiser. “Everything I’ve accomplished I’ve accomplished because Harry Reid was there by my side.” Reid made his position on the deal known on Sunday, pledging to support it. That must have been worth a hug and a kiss for the little pugilist. He didn’t mention Nancy Pelosi, but she was there too, but that was the extent of Obama’s diplomacy among his own party, it was non-existent with Republicans, nor on a foreign policy basis globally.
As time goes on more and more is revealed about the deal, I trust the Congress is reading the deal with Iran better than they did Obamacare.
A vote on the deal will be held in mid-September. All 54 Republicans have said they will vote against the deal. This means at least six Democrats will be necessary to avoid a filibuster to put the bill on Obama’s desk.
It was revealed today that it will take more than $10 Million a year — some of which is US taxpayer money — for member states to allow Iran to inspect themselves to assure us and our allies that Iran is not building a bomb.
And who are the ‘crazies?’
