During his speech Obama compared the Iranian “hardliners” to the Republican Caucus.
What an offensive remark.

President Obama: I realize that resorting to force may be tempting in the face of the rhetoric and behavior that emanates from parts of Iran. It is offensive. It is incendiary. We do take it seriously. But superpowers should not act impulsively in response to talks… Just because Iranian hardliners chant ‘Death to America” does not mean that that’s what all Iranians believe. In fact, it’s those hardliners that are more satisfied with the status quo. It’s those hardliners chanting “death to America” who’ve been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican Caucus.
The partisan audience applauded this disgusting statement. That was Wednesday.
On Thursday Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and four prominent Jewish lawmakers from New York and Florida announced they would oppose Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
So will Barack Obama compare them to the Iranian hardliners, too?
