Charlie Sheen Calls it Winning

February 4th, 2014 - 8:30 am

WINNING

Actually it’s Stacy Kaper in this case, saying Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom is winning on Iran:

The push for new sanctions on Iran has stalled. The Democrats who bucked President Obama to back the sanctions bill are backpedaling mightily—no longer even pretending they’re pushing Harry Reid to hold a vote on the measure. And while there’s still plenty of chest-pounding and posturing, the debate’s end result seems clear: The Senate will wait, at least so long as the negotiations move in the right direction.

That’s a full flip from just more than a month ago. Before the December recess, the Senate’s pro-sanctions faction was surging. Senators—including Democrats who are typically Obama loyalists—were agreeing with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that the nuclear negotiations with Iran bordered on capitulation.

So how did Obama—a supposedly feckless president when it comes to handling Congress—turn the tide?

I want you please to take note of the premise of this article. The Professor isn’t getting his way with Iran, it’s that he might be getting his way with Congress over Iran. Kaper isn’t writing about the strength of our foreign policy, but rather how the White House measures up to Congress — with the safety of this country and its allies not even an afterthought.

This is frankly an imperial view of the presidency, and unwittingly describes much of what is wrong with Washington in foreign and domestic policy.

Obama is presiding over the death of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. As more nations become nuclear weapons states the Doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction becomes moot.

So Dear Liar views Congress as more of his enemy than Iran is?

As with all things, Wiggleroom is feckless and clueless. But he has read the public on this. And there is no support at all for any more military action anywhere in the Middle East.Frankly nor should we get involved. If Israel needs to defend itself,fine. But they will do so with our support, not our military. The idiots in the GOP like McShame and Grahmnesty do more harm than good crowing about militaty intervention. There's no point, it's not happening.

Agreed. Short of war, there's no way to stop a reasonably technically-competent nation from obtaining nukes, if it really wants them. And we won't be going to war over Iranian nukes. Not under GW Bush, and certainly not under Professor D. Wiggleroom.

That said, the White House is pursuing a two-prong strategy of making it easier and cheaper for Iran to obtain nukes (not a good idea) while trying to effectively isolate Israel.

That's a whole lot of bad right there.

Silly me. Here I thought giving material aid to our enemies was cause for impeachment. And treason.

That depends on who one considers to be the enemy.

We are on trial for our life. Facing a hostile jury and a Hanging Judge.
And our lawyers only concern is "How do I look?"
