Something happened this weekend that’s bound to make our dear president very unhappy. You’ll love it.
As reported on CNN this morning:
President Obama suffered an “embarrassment” with the Democratic National Committee not passing a resolution over the weekend in support of his Iran nuclear deal, CNN panelists said Sunday.
According to the Washington Post, party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) blocked the resolution at the summer meeting in Minnesota.
Wait a second… did hell just freeze over? An area where we actually AGREE with DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz? (Even if her move was purely to protect her own political future with her largely Jewish constituency in South Florida.)
“The Obama-controlled DNC could not pass a resolution this weekend expressing support for President Obama’s Iran deal,” New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin said. “It’s a bit of an embarrassment for the administration seeing as it’s how his party, he appointed Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and it’s revived the sort-of latest round of eye-rolling among Democratic operatives about the state of the party.”
Watch yourself below:
CNN host John King said Martin was being diplomatic, saying it was a “big embarrassment for the president.”
An embarrassment for President Obama and his precious Iran deal? I’ll say. And I love it — for so many reasons. Most of all, because this is perhaps the biggest blow yet — symbolically, at least — to one of the biggest travesties we’ve seen in a long time.
Just goes to show you truly terrible this deal is for the United States, despite what the president would have us believe. Even if this move by the DNC is largely symbolic — and Congress will be hard-pressed to override an Obama veto — it speaks volumes.
So now, will President Obama come out and call Debbie Wassermann-Schultz and the entire DNC “crazies”? I guess if he does, then I might have to say I actually AGREE with the president for once. And hell just may freeze over again.
