WH Talking Points 'Straight Out of Tehran'
The Obama administration has done such a miserable job dealing with Iran that even some Democrats are starting to question the president’s policy. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, said, “The more I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran. It feeds to the Iranian narrative of victimization when they are the ones with original sin.” Par for the course, the president threatened this week to veto any new sanctions Congress might place on Iran, insisting that sanctions would scare Iran away from the negotiating table. As if to reassure Iran the administration isn’t serious, the White House reminded the world that eliminating Iran’s nuclear program isn’t on the table.
