Schumer, Republicans and Iran Hardliners Make Common Cause

Full Orwell - WSJ:

It gets very hard to make any sort of rational sense of the noxious emanations from BO's teleprompter these days. One thing is completely clear -- since he said the following, there are truly no standards left for the office of US President after the BO debacle (Trump has an open field):
Just because Iranian hard-liners chant “Death to America” does not mean that that’s what all Iranians believe.
In fact, it’s those hard-liners who are most comfortable with the status quo. It’s those hard-liners chanting “Death to America” who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican caucus.
First of all, that is politically partisan calumny of the most rancid type typically only spewing from the far reaches of the left or the right crazy crowd, not from the Oval Office. What is the difference between "hardliners" and the leaders of Iran? You know the ones that signed the deal and gloated because they know what appeasement is and they like it better than sanctions, having $100 Billion frozen, military strikes on their facilities, and yes ... possible war??

Name a leader in Iran that has never said "Death to America". I sincerely doubt if there is one -- but certainly many of those involved in the "deal", including President Rouhani, DO so chant! and why not? Read BO "Dreams From My Father" -- BO himself seems in agreement with them! (he considers America as taking the mantle of colonial power from Britain, as do the Iranians!)

So what he says is false and rancid -- he is asserting that Republicans and "hard liners" prefer war. OK, so by that logic (as covered in the linked article), the Japanese and the US Congress were "making common cause" after Pearl Harbor, because they both clearly preferred war to peace. BO's "reasoning" is of the form "Hitler was a vegetarian, you are a vegetarian, therefore you are making common cause with Hitler".

But then we now see that Chuck Schumer, third ranking DEMOCRAT Senator from NY is also "making common cause" with "hardliners", Republicans, and possibly Hitler as well -- once you go down the BO sort of lying weasel rathole, the kind of vermin you get associated with is unpredictable.

BO's nutcase rhetoric notwithstanding, it IS actually possible for people that have rational minds to prefer sanctions, not giving supporters of terrorism over $100B, and even targeted military strikes to appeasement. Only in BO's fevered strawman imagination are "war or appeasement" the only options!
