In business terms, it’s throwing good money after bad. In political terms, it’s Democrats following Barack Obama over the cliff.
Reports say key congressional leaders, furious over the interim nuke pact with Iran, are threatening to buck Obama and add more sanctions. Those threats, I believe, will never come to anything.
Democrats are afraid to say no to Obama. They’ve never done it and are not likely to start now.
So if you like ObamaCare, you’ll love the Iranian nuke deal.
The same people who gave you the health-care disaster on a party-line vote also will make it easier for Iran to get a nuke. Some will kick and scream, but they’ll fall in line like good party soldiers. They did it before and they’ll do it again.
Joe Biden called ObamaCare a “big f–king deal” at the signing ceremony. Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” She also said, “It’s going to be very, very exciting.”
Well, there is no arguing with those predictions. ObamaCare is a very big deal, and it’s fair to say Americans are very, very excited as they discover what’s in it.
So it will be with Iran. The promise of greater security and peace in our time will be proven false. You don’t have to be a historian to know that weakness begets aggression. Always.
