When asked about the open letter by Senate Republicans to Iran’s leaders, President Obama quipped, “I think it’s somewhat ironic to see some members of Congress wanting to make common cause with the hardliners in Iran. It’s an unusual coalition.”
To paraphrase President Reagan, “Well, there he goes again.” Once again, Obama is erecting strawmen. It is reminiscient of when Obama told Congressional Republicans in 2011 that the late Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi was “somebody no one should want to defend” and a “cause celebre” for Republicans when the GOP had the temerity to want to have a say in any military incursion in Libya.
Heaven forbid anyone question President Obama’s patriotism, but the moment Congress wants to be consulted he accuses his opposition of being in league with Qaddafi and now with hardliners in Iran.
Which brings me to this point. Who the hell does Obama think he is negotiating with in Iran? It was only a week ago that Iran executed six Sunni Muslims and within the past few months executed a woman who killed her rapist in self-defense and executed a man for heresy.
As long as the Mullahs are in charge, Iran will be ruled by hardliners.
