President Tactfully Avoids Mentioning Who Armed Iran In The First Place

Thanks to Obama’s Deal With Iran, We See Republican Cabal’s True Colors

The word “historic” isn’t often an understatement, but it’s tough to find a word that adequately captures the world-changing nature of the deal the United States, Iran, and several other countries reached early this morning to curb Iran’s nuclear program. If nothing else, it fundamentally changes the nature of the relationship between the U.S. and one of our most entrenched opponents, possibly for generations.
Without a crystal ball, we can’t say for certain if this deal will ultimately succeed or fail; it’s up to the Iranians to choose to respect the deal or not. What we do know is that if you want more peace and less war in the world, this is a day to celebrate.
But Republicans aren’t celebrating. They woke up to news of the deal and didn’t hesitate to come claws-out, immediately attacking the deal and President Obama before the ink was dry on the signatures. Just  look at what some of the presidential candidates have already said about the deal:
Marco Rubio
It will be left to the next President to return us to a position of American strength and re-impose sanctions on this despicable regime.

My statement on the
Does that rhetoric sound familiar? It should. A nuclear deal with Iran is vastly different from the Affordable Care Act, but the Republican cabal's reaction is exactly the same. Attack a real plan that solves an intractable problem, promise to undo it, and fail to offer any alternatives.
The Republicans have been attacking these negotiations for months, before the parties reached a deal. Their reaction to the deal now that the details have been hammered out was entirely predictable. (I’m kicking myself for not pre-writing this story.)
Republicans are making it clear they have no serious interest in peace, or even America’s national security. Just like Obamacare, the deal this administration struck with Iran is nothing more than a target for their partisan rancor. The merits are meaningless to the Republican cabal. It’s just fuel for the political fire. At least they don’t have centrifuges.
