The Iran Deal has been a giant bowl of crap baba ganoush since day one. A bowl that has really been rotting over the past few weeks (see Bibi Netanyahu Schools Moron Chris Cuomo on Iran Deal and Ted Cruz Destroys Obama’s Iran Deal One Tweet at a Time). So it’s no surprise that today, Trump treated the deal like Stormy Daniels and pulled out.
Liberals of course, went straight to plaid (see Top 10 Liberal Meltdowns Over Trump’s Iran Deal Withdrawal). But if you ask Senator Ben Sasse, the president to blame isn’t Trump. It’s Obama.
The Iran deal has always been terrible. Today is a reminder that if you live by the Presidency, you die by the Presidency. We ought to be clear about this: Donald Trump isn’t ripping up a treaty; he’s walking away from Barack Obama’s personal pledge. Two and a half years ago, President Obama made a bad deal with Iran without support from Congress, and today President Trump is pulling out of President Obama’s personal commitment, and he doesn’t need Congress’s support to do so. American foreign policy makes lasting progress when it is led by the President, approved by Congress, and presented honestly to the American people.
Now we have to rely on President Trump’s dealmaking skills. His ability to present things honestly to the American people. Two things I’m unable to do. Hopefully, General Mattis and Ambassador Haley take the lead and let Trump take the credit for it. Or they replace Trump’s phone with a squeaky toy.
Still, Obama’s “deal” needed to be pulled. It should have never been made in the first place.
One doesn’t trust a nation like Iran with nuclear material. Kind of like one doesn’t give matches to a toddler saying “Now don’t start a fire with these matches, Skylar, just build yourself a fort. There’s a dear.” Then leave the house to get your nails done.
