Obama gave a speech at the American University claiming that those that oppose him are basically the same thing as terrorists.
He used this attack to try and bully all Americans that disagree with him in an attempt to further sell the Iranian deal to the American people and Congress.
The deal, which isn’t a treaty and can be ignored by the next president, has come under fire from both Democrats and Republicans for lacking in substance, enforcement and detail.
Town Hall reported that regardless of bipartisan opposition, Obama took his international opportunity yesterday to compare people that don’t agree with his nuclear deal to Iranian “hardliners” chanting death to America in the streets.
“Just because Iranian hard-liners chant ‘death to America’ does not mean that that’s what all Iranians believe.
In fact, it’s those hard-liners who are most comfortable with the status qou. It’s those hard-liners chanting ‘death to America’ who have been most opposed to the deal.
They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus,” Obama said.
McConnell, R-Ky., called the comments “bizarre and preposterous” in a statement released Wednesday afternoon, adding that “supporters and defenders” of the proposed deal should reject the president’s “offensive rhetoric.”
“Members of both parties have serious and heartfelt concerns about the Iran deal,” he said in a statement. “These Democrats and Republicans deserved serious answers today, not some outrageous attempt to equate their search for answers with supporting chants of ‘Death to America.’”
Fox news reported the White House is preparing for the likelihood that lawmakers will vote against the deal next month and is focusing its lobbying efforts on getting enough Democrats to sustain a presidential veto.
Only one chamber of Congress is needed to sustain a veto and keep the deal in place.
Obama needs 146 Democrats in the House or 34 in the Senate to sustain a veto. As of Wednesday afternoon, 16 House Democrats and 11 senators had publicly declared their support for the deal.
Obama is prepared with his pen and his phone to over step his authority as usual and go against the will of the people, again.
The White House has said it is confident it can sustain a veto at least in the House.
