Senate Democrats Crush GOP War March By Delivering Iran Deal Victory To Obama


President Obama only needed one more Senator on his side for the Iran deal and it would be locked up. Wednesday morning, he got that pledge.

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) is the 34th pledge of support in the Senate for the Iran deal, thereby handing President Obama a huge win in the Senate against Republicans who have gone full court press to stop the deal.

The AP reported via Yahoo News:

“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.”

Mikulski’s vote gives Democrats the ability to sustain a potential veto if Republicans in Congress pass the resolution of disapproval. Meanwhile, Leader Nancy Pelosi is piling up the Democratic support in the House, making that scenario less likely than Republicans hoped.

This is a huge foreign policy victory for President Obama and his administration, but it’s also a win for the world.

  1. Now that’s what I’m talking about, that what I voted for, peace over war

    It’s not perfect, but nothing is…

  2. The new number we need is 41.

    We need 7 more Senators to vote yes so the Democrats could filibuster any republican resolution that President Obama would be forced to veto.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz could redeem herself somewhat and prop up her defunct role as Chairman of the DNC by voting yes to the agreement and leading 6 more Senators to do the same.

  3. We didn’t get a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt by threatening war. Why do we think it’s in Israel’s interest to do that with Iran? While I’m on the subject, within days of his announcement of President Carter’s cancer announcement, Ted Cruz was mocking President Carter’s foreign policies. I ask slimy Ted Cruz this; Who was it that brokered that historical peace deal between Israel and Egypt? I’d say that was a heck of a foreign policy achievement.

  4. There it is. Done.

    What say the “47” Republicans +2 (Democrats)Presidential backstabbers? They must be getting the cold shoulder from Bibi now. He had a pre-celebration that failed. Remember he invited a few of the NO voting Republicans to Israel for a little pep talk? Losers.

    Obama: I told ya’ll so: I will WIN this. So Get to F*ck outta my face. Go cry in Netanyahu’s lap.

  5. Much of human thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed, or downright prejudiced. That sounds like your statement.

    It takes critical thinking to overcome these distortions: disciplined thinking that is clear, rational, open-minded, and informed by evidence. That doesn’t sound like your statement.

  6. Still too close for comfort. Anyone voting against peace just wants to trash the President and get campaign money or bribes from the radical right Israeli/Jewish lobbies. Imagine putting America second to Israel and voting for war just to make money. Over 40 former or retired Israeli security and military people support the deal, it’s just the crazies like Netanyahu who oppose peace.

  7. Well, the Veto is taken care of… now, let’s see if they can make sure their resolution of disapproval gets aborted on the House floor.

  8. You do not know what is in it. It is not done.

    Trade deals help the economy in general.
    Economists disagree with you.

    Google it. Go to any economic paper or magazine or college course on trade.

    If he comes up with a good trade deal he will go from hero to super hero.

    If it is bad he will scrap it.


    Many econ types are laughing loudly at the socialists ideas. Not just here, all over the world. He has no advisors. He has been spouting his rhetoric and the fact checkers are mocking it daily all over the press.

    But the Bernouts repeat it like parrots do.

    No TPP no trade deals for America? What about for China? Do you want them to write the rules or do you want Obama to?

  10. Don’t you realize yet that Americans are disgusted with the Dems vs Repubs battle? Stop the immature and immaterial popularity contest and instead pay attention to what Americans want. Here’s a concept: talk to citizens rather than pollsters!! You might obtain some helpful information.

  11. We need to see the turncoat Democrats who have more loyalty to a foreign country than they do to the USA be punished for their alliance with the Republicans. Schumer, who is my senator from NY, should not be rewarded with the Senate leadership position. That job should rightfully go to Dick Durbin who was in line for the position until for some reason Reid put forth Schumer for leadership. And Wasserman Schultz should not remain head of the DNC. If she can’t support the Democratic Party and the Democratic President, she should not be in a leadership position in the Democratic Party.
