Obama Proclaims There Are No “Secret Deals” Regarding Iran

Let’s start off noting that Obama went completely off the rails during his Wednesday speech defending his horrible Iran deal. Powerline’s John Hinderaker wonders if this is Obama’s lowest moment yet

Today President Obama gave a speech at American University, urging acceptance of his nuclear deal with Iran. It was the usual exercise in deception and demagoguery, and he skated up to the edge of accusing opponents of the deal–a majority of Americans, apparently–of treason.

It was an exercise in strawmen, Blamestorming (including Blaming Bush), and lies

No doubt the worst portion of Obama’s speech is the one that has gotten the most attention. Note how Obama walks right up to the line of accusing Republicans in Congress of treason:

Just because Iranian hardliners chant “Death to America” does not mean that that’s what all Iranians believe. (Applause.)

No, but it is what Iran’s rulers believe. Iran’s Supreme Leader frequently leads mobs in chants of “Death to America.” Does Obama think he is kidding?

In fact, it’s those hardliners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hardliners chanting “Death to America” who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus. (Laughter and applause.)

It is also delusional. Iran’s hardliners are the regime in power. The mullahs are not aligning themselves with Republicans; on the contrary, they are trumpeting the fact that they got everything they wanted in their negotiations with John Kerry and Barack Obama. But Obama can’t, and won’t, confront that reality. He will just go on slandering his political opponents and lying to the American people.

Hinderaker notes that Obama is a bad president, but a worse man. This is exactly the kind of thing that made me write years ago that he is no longer my president. This kind of talk may be aimed at pushing recalcient Democrats to vote for the deal, but, this is insulting to the majority of Republicans and Independents, along with a small portion of Democrats, who are against this terrible deal. Say what you will about George W. Bush, he pretty much never attacked political opponents. He kept it presidential, unlike Obama, who acts more like the president of Media Matters.

He even admitted that “some” of the cash that will return to Iran will be used to fund terrorism. One thing he won’t admit to are the side deals

(The Hill)President Obama hit back at Republican opponents of his Iran nuclear deal on Twitter Wednesday.

The president denied suggestions there are secret terms to the deal that haven’t been shared with Congress and said rejecting the agreement would bolster Iran’s nuclear program.

“Important detail – there are no secret deals,” Obama wrote about the agreement, responding to a tweet from House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.).

“My staff can brief you on any question about any part of the deal,” he added.

“Mr. President, Americans deserve to know the details about the secret side deals,” Scalise had tweeted earlier Wednesday morning with the hashtag #IranDeal.

Perhaps NMP Obama should check with Secretary of State John Kerry, who admitted there are secret side deals to Congress, and that they can’t be shared with Congress and the American people. The man is a serial liar, putting the needs and wants of the hardcore Iranian regime over the needs and wants of the people he is Constitutionally bound to serve.
