More and more groups have come forward to support the president. The latest is a group of 51 Christian leaders, who represent dozens of Christian denominations and organizations. In a letter to Congress, they voiced their support of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as the best means of keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of Iran.
The Republicans find themselves increasingly alone in opposing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal. Back on July 20, not only did the United Nations Security Council unanimously endorse the JCPOA, but we saw a “Statement by National Security Leaders on the Announcement of a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” signed by 60 national security leaders, from cabinet members to senators.
Former national security adviser Brent Snowcroft says rejecting the Iran deal "is an abdication of America's unique role and responsibility"
House Republicans will be voting on a resolution of disapproval of the Iran deal, and Senate Republicans are talking about a resolution too
Senate "No-Show" Cruz says Obama "snuggles up to" radical Islamic regimes, but suggests Obama is too busy golfing to take him up on it
The whole thing seems to predictably clear now, looking back:
- Obama reaches nuclear agreement with Iran;
- Republicans throw hissy fit, because Obama;
- Mike Huckabee goes all Sarah Palin and equates Iran deal to Holocaust;
- Jewish groups and rational people everywhere condemn remarks;
- Obama rips Huckabee (and entire GOP);
- Republicans leap to Huckabee’s defense.
With nary a surprise to be found in the entire chain of events. Why? Because this is, in a nutshell, any year from 2009 to this year. It is a sequence that has and will continue to be repeated until President Obama’s second term ends and he returns to private life.
Huckabee, who believed in diplomacy for white presidents, claims that Obama "will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven"
As GOP stupidity mounts, claiming they can stop a deal they cannot legally stop, President Obama proves again he can make the tough decisions
This idea that Israel, or Netanyahu, has unfettered purview of America's foreign policy is a legacy of the Bush administration
Republicans who are trying to stop President Obama's Iran deal suffered an immediate crushing blow as influential Senate liberals Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders both made statements supporting the President's diplomatic efforts.
The current President, Barack Obama, will go down in history for providing tens-of-millions of Americans with access to affordable health care, restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba, an historic climate change deal with China, and with the stroke of his pen, ceding executive branch authority over foreign policy to a Congress loyal to a foreign national.
The neo-con's solution has been fulfilling Netanyahu's twenty-three year campaign for Americans to die in a war with the Islamic Republic of Iran primarily because Israel wants to be the only Middle East nation with an American-provided nuclear arsenal.
President Obama delivered the message that Republicans least want to hear. Diplomacy can be difficult and time-consuming, but unlike the neocon war first ideology, it works.
From the Rose Garden, President Obama announced the historically tough deal that the United States and the international community has negotiated to halt Iran's development of nuclear weapons.
It is obvious now that America is not in an 'official war,' Republicans need a fear-mongering diatribe from Netanyahu on the pressing necessity for anything to draw America into another Middle East war
