    Two top congressional Democrats announced late Thursday that they would oppose President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the No. 3 Senate Democrat, and Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., the leading Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, both announced their objection to the deal in a blow to the Obama administration ahead of next month’s vote.


    Schumer said in his statement that there is real risk that Iran "will not moderate" and will use the pact to "pursue its nefarious goals". He added that advocates on both sides of the debate made points that couldn’t be dismissed, but in the end he said he "must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.”

    Schumer also stated that he found a proposed 24-day delay before inspections could take place "troubling" and noted that the agreement does not allow for "anytime, anywhere" inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities or a unilateral demand for inspections by the U.S.

    southbeach1500 saidHmmmm... I guess Schmuckey Schumer is another of those "radicals just like the Iran hardliners" too.

    Obama defends comparison between Iran hardliners and GOP

    Obama has doubled down on the lie that it is the hardliners, not the mainstream, who chants death to Israel. In reality, it's the Republican Guard supported by the supreme leader.

    Excuse me..

    I'm not a war monger... but a fag-killing theocracy that puts negative incentives on its citizens to carry "Death to America" signs and rally about things they themselves only do to get extra ration tickets and other pay offs... needs to know what consequences really are.

    There's all sorts of crap written about the "cruelty" under Shah Pehlavi. BUT ZERO discussion of the massive slaughters before and after him under Soviet infleunced dictatorships and later the even more repressive and blood thirsty Ayatollahs.

    Applying western sensibilities to issues in a nation that has been theocratically and authoritatively purged of all whispers of western values is the flaw in the liberal media's version of events in Iran.

    Step out of your bubble and meet Iranians who've escaped Ayatollahism. We're talking about idiotic mother fuckers who've banned Muslims from zero gravity space environments because they can't point their prayer rugs to Mecca. Google it.

    If you become friends with Iranians who've escaped they will scare liberals... They are all for bombing in order to free the people who survive. Otherwise means they all live as slaves to Ayatollahs.

    Thanks for putting an end to the myth liberals in US are all about protecting minorities.

    Jews make up 2.1% of the US population yet have defied common sense to support the same liberal US parties who malign them for being against regimes in the middle east who get great thrills from throwing fags off buildings, hanging them and cutting off their heads. Like asians, and non Jewish escapees from Islamic terror in the middle east, and unlike the influx of violators of the US southern borders, Jews contribute a disproportionate amount to the US economy through their sincere scholarship and work ethics.

    But don't let that stop you from preaching the mindless rhetoric about the 13% of Americans who throw 98% of their votes to the party that first, account for 48% of gun crimes - who were enslaved to Democrats until the end of the Civil war, by people who went to war to keep them enslaved and in 1964 found a way to make political slaves of them to the concept of receiving free shit.
