Obama Right on Iran Deal, Critics are WRONG...

POLITICO - As he stepped up efforts to sell the Iran nuclear deal to the American public and skeptics in Congress on Tuesday, President Barack Obama compared critics’ opposition to the agreement with support for the invasion of Iraq.

In both a muscular speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Pittsburgh and a taping of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” Obama cast critics of his diplomatic approach as the same kind of misguided warmongers who pushed for an invasion of Iraq during George W. Bush’s presidency.

“We’re hearing the echoes of some of the same policies and mindset that we’ve heard in the past,” Obama said. His loudest critics, he added, are “the same folks who were so quick to go to war in Iraq and said it would take a few months.”

A few hours later, on the “Daily Show” set in New York City, Obama took another jab at his critics, this time invoking Dick Cheney. He mocked those who he said seem to believe that if “you had brought Dick Cheney to the negotiations, everything would be fine.”

The administration has presented the negotiations with Iran as a choice between peacefully preventing a nuclear Iran and going to war with the Islamic Republic, but Obama appeared to take the argument a step further to question the credibility of his opponents.

“I believe there’s a smarter, more responsible way,” Obama said in Pittsburgh.

“We’ve done the hard and patient work” of diplomacy, he added, “instead of chest-beating which rejects the idea of even talking to our adversaries.”

When you are right you are right. On this issue of utmost importance the President is absolutely right. BTW, it really is time for conservatives, neo cons, and war mongers to accept the USA share of responsibility for the volatility in the Middle East and our shitty relations with Iran.
