BREAKING: Democrat Senator Drops Bombshell About Obama and Muslim CountryFriday, January 23rd, 2015
President Barack Obama has made no bones about how he is “a friend” of the Iranian regime, and how he wishes to “partner” with them going forward.
However, his secret negotiations and one-sided concessions to the tyrannical theocratic regime have been infuriating, and there is bipartisan opposition to his efforts at outreach to Iran.
Despite Obama’s threats to veto any new sanctions on Iran passed by Congress, they are nevertheless pushing forward with them, surprisingly with a Democrat senator at the forefront of that push, according to the Washington Times.
New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had some exceptionally harsh words for Obama and his administration regarding their weak stance towards Iran.
During a recent Committee hearing on the topic of new sanctions on Iran, which likely has enough votes to override a veto, Menendez said Obama’s talking points about Iran in his State of the Union address sounded like they came “straight out of Tehran.”

“An illicit nuclear weapons program going back over the course of 20 years that they are unwilling to come clean on,” Menendez said. “So I don’t know why we feel compelled to make their case when, in fact … they get to cheat in a series of ways and we get to worry about their perceptions.”
This is great, as it is always good to see a Democrat have a moment of clarity and break away from the lockstep support for the president that we have sadly become accustomed to.
While we are certainly no big fans of Bob Menendez, and would work to replace him with a conservative Republican in the next election, we welcome his strong stance and assistance in facing down the nuclear threat posed by Iran, a threat that is seemingly ignored by Obama.
Hopefully, the strong opposition stance taken by Senator Menendez will inspire other Democrats to break away from the party line and actually do what is right for the country instead of what is right for Obama’s dangerously destructive agenda.
