The Incredible Chutzpah Of Obama’s Iran Statement
Obama has yet to answer a single question about his meeting with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. But after President Trump pulled out of his failed Iran nuke scam, the disgraced former president objected to the move.
“Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies,” Obama posted. “In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next. But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.”
The nerve. The chutzpah, as they say in his least favorite country.
Obama turned his back on America’s allies when he made a dirty deal with Iran that allowed it to preserve its nuclear capabilities while funding its terror program. There isn’t a single ally in the region who supported the move, barring perhaps the Qatari terror sponsors who have their own agreement with Iran.
Israel, the Saudis, Kuwait, the UAE, etc… were all against the move.
The only allies who supported it are outside the region. And that’s the Brits, French and Germans who have business interests in Iran.
Finally, if Obama had wanted to immunize his illegal treaty from the next administration, he needed to get Senate approval. He chose not to get it, gambling that Hillary Clinton would succeed him.
He bet on the wrong horse.
Agreements only persist from one administration to the next when they’re approved by the Senate. Obama chose to bypass the Senate. These are the consequences. Republican senators led by Senator Tom Cotton specifically warned Obama and Iran that this would happen if he didn’t get Senate ratification.
Obama’s people threw a tantrum over the warning. Now it’s Obama’s turn to throw a tantrum.
