Obama: I'll Make Case to American People After Iran Deal Is Made

President Obama will wait until after a nuclear deal with Iran is made to make the case to the American people that it’s the right thing to do. He made the comment today after being asked about this letter from nearly 50 U.S. senators to Iran, which stated, “The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”

A member of the press asked Obama, “Can you comment on the Republican letter to Iran?  Can you comment on that?”

“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,” Obama told the reporter.

“I think what we’re going to focus on right now is actually seeing whether we can get a deal or not.  And once we do — if we do — then we’ll be able to make the case to the American people, and I’m confident we’ll be able to implement it.”

 

 
Update: Obama Allies with Iran Against Senate Republicans

…Senate Republicans wrote a letter to Iran’s crazy leadership explaining that we’re a democracy, we have checks and balances (not consisting solely of Valerie Jarrett and an 8-ball) and that we don’t get all of our decisions made by a hateful old man in a funny hat.

In other words, any deal Obama makes with Iran will have to be approved of and supported by Congress.

Obama and Iran reacted to this about as well as could be expected from a power mad lunatic. Also Iran wasn’t happy…
