Predetermined Outcome Now Inevitable on Iran

Democrats now own Iran, along with Obama.

Congress was never going to stop Barack Obama’s deal with Iran. Not when he deliberately negotiated a treaty and didn’t call it a treaty specifically so as to avoid Congress. And certainly not when Sen. Bob Corker crafted a deal to guarantee congressional review but with a huge caveat — Obama didn’t need a two-thirds majority to ratify a treaty, but rather only one-third to sustain a veto. A couple of Democrats — Chuck Schumer and Robert Menendez — made a show of bucking Obama, but in the end it was only a matter of Minority Leader Harry Reid granting a few no votes to Democrats whose electoral fortunes depended on it. The rest would fall into line with Obama. That wagon circle was completed Wednesday when Sen. Barbara Mikulski became the 34th senator to announce her support for the deal, virtually guaranteeing its passage. Now Obama just needs 41 Democrats to sustain a filibuster so he doesn’t even have to bother vetoing. The predetermined outcome is why Obama felt so free to slander Republicans as making “common cause” with Iranian hardliners. Well, that and his narcissistic personality disorder.

There are a couple of important points here. First, Obama’s vote count charade has never been about national security or Iran; it has been about cutting back room deals for votes. His “defining legacy” was always secure. Second, and to that point, Democrats now own Iran. Rep. Patrick Murphy had the complete lack of historical awareness to unwittingly quote Neville Chamberlain in declaring the deal would bring “peace in our time.” But when — not if — Iran obtains nuclear weapons, Democrats have now affixed their names to that Obama legacy. Obama admitted as much, saying “it’s my name on this” for an Iranian bomb. Giving Iran $100 to $150 billion in sanctions relief with which the ayatollahs will continue funding terrorism is also Obama’s legacy. And Congress won’t do anything about it.
