Thou shalt not disobey
King President Obama.
In an effort to do the right thing (hey, miracles can happen), Senator Chuck Schumer of New York posted his reasons for opposing the Iran Nuke Deal.
In making my decision, I examined this deal in three parts: nuclear restrictions on Iran in the first ten years, nuclear restrictions on Iran after ten years, and non-nuclear components and consequences of a deal. In each case I have asked: are we better off with the agreement or without it?
Spoiler alert, Schumer believes we’re much safer without this deal. Double spoiler alert, he’s not as big of an idiot as we thought. He goes on to write:
Therefore, I will vote to disapprove the agreement, not because I believe war is a viable or desirable option, nor to challenge the path of diplomacy. It is because I believe Iran will not change, and under this agreement it will be able to achieve its dual goals of eliminating sanctions while ultimately retaining its nuclear and non-nuclear power. Better to keep U.S. sanctions in place, strengthen them, enforce secondary sanctions on other nations, and pursue the hard-trodden path of diplomacy once more, difficult as it may be.
But loyal subjects of Obama were quick to attack, and some have threatened to replace Schumer as the Democrat Leader in the Senate. All because Schumer believes Iran, a notoriously evil country which has chanted “Death to America“ and wants to obliterate Israel, shouldn’t develop a nuke. Monster.
Of course neither the leftist rank and file nor the media are discussing the reasons Schumer opposes the deal, just that he’s defecting from Obama. What gives? He’s supposed to be a Democrat, and here he is going all “Moscow on the Hudson” on them. Bastard.
Ah Chuck, better reaffirm you think it’s a good idea to kill babies, or the left might start calling you a racist.
