Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tries to grow a spine as he attempts to call out Obama on the sarcastic, derisive comments the “unofficial” tyrant king made toward Republicans opposing “his” Iran Nuke Deal. The Blaze reports McConnell’s remarks as “excoriating.” In truth, McConnell’s remarks are about as “excoriating” as a silk shirt on peeled tomatoes.
At American University in Washington on Wednesday, Obama attempted a hard sell on the Iran Deal in a speech full of rhetoric and lacking answers. In the speech, Obama compared Iranian hardliners to the Republican caucus opposed to this deal.
“Just because Iranian hardliners chant ‘Death to America’ doesn’t mean that’s what all Iranians believe,” Obama said, adding that they also oppose the deal. “Those hardliners are most comfortable with the status quo … they are making common cause with the Republican caucus.”
In the statement by McConnell, he requested Obama approach the matter “with the reverence and respect it clearly deserves.”
Members of both parties have serious heartfelt concerns about the Iran deal. These Democrats and Republicans deserved serious answers today, not some outrageous attempt to equate their search for answers with supporting chants of ‘Death to America.’
I imagine Democrats who’ve already come out against this agreement will be especially insulted by it. This goes way over the line of civil discourse. Let me repeat my call for the President to shelve these talking points no one believes and resist these insults no one deserves so we can all aim higher — and rise to the moment together.
The President needs to retract his bizarre and preposterous comments, and both supporters and defenders of the President’s deal with Iran should reject this offensive rhetoric.
That’s excoriating? In political circles, one guesses that would be excoriating. Mitch, Mitch, Mitch, Mitch, Mitch. You are from the South where sass and sassafras go hand in hand. Sit down over here. Watch, listen and learn. This is how you excoriate.
With all due disrespect, Barry, as you have done everything to erode the respectability of the office of the President of the united States of America, shut the heck up! Civil discourse be cursed. No one here cares what the United Nations approved, passed or blew out its nose. No one here cares what other nations’ governments stupidly did with their nose stuffed up your flatulence. Despite your operating as a dictator, king or tyrant wannabe, you sir, are none of those things, which means the law of the land applies to you.
You stand there spewing hot air out of your skinny mini mom jeans self, pushing some fantasy deal without facts to back it up. While you are busy openly criticizing everyone else in a condescending sarcastic manner, you need to remember what’s hanging around your neck bud. It’s not a Hawaiian lei or some “King of Kenya” necklace. It’s scandal after scandal, crime after crime and lie after lie. So, pardon us, and the American people, for asking for proof, facts and straightforward legitimate answers to questions.
To anyone paying attention, sir, it is blatantly obvious you have no answers. Neither do any of your keystone kop negotiators nor that buffoon of a Secretary of State, John Kerry. All you can manage to do is spin “stories out of whole cloth,” deliver sarcastic rhetoric, and play community organizer around the world. Well, let me tell you, that’s not a valid foreign policy. If there is any doubt about your ability to function as president of this nation, all doubt is removed at this point as you have done everything but lead this nation and functioned as a president.
You’re not in Chicago anymore, Barry, and the presidency is not about community organizing the world or this nation. No man has done more to defame the highest office in our nation than you. Believe me that states volumes.
Regardless of what you want, lies you concoct and condescending remarks you make, the Constitution charges this Senate with advising and consenting on treaties, and yes, this is a treaty, when the President decides to enter into a treaty, since treaties, if approved by the Senate, become law. No one is sorry to say, Barry, that we don’t trust you. Because of your anti-American stance and bile, you are likely to negotiate away our sovereignty, open this nation up to devastation at the hands of a rogue nation, sell out US citizens and plunge this nation headlong into a world conflict.
This is where the rubber meets the road, sir. It’s where the gloves get removed. The patience with your insolence, condescension, verbal attacks and rhetoric eroded some time back. Tolerance will no longer prevail since you have worn it to the bone. It’s time for your childish behavior to stop. Toe to toe we stand with your responses met with open opposing response. Now, if you don’t like that, tough. Suck it up buttercup. You should recognize the phrase as you imply it repeatedly when you illegally, unconstitutionally and unilaterally make law.
Don’t bother sneaking around to send your goons. It’s a given they are coming. Any subversive action or questionable action by any agency under your direction will confirm the retaliation mindset you possess against those who speak against you. Well, bring it on, Barry. You may get me but you’ll be gotten as well.
Oh, one last thing, Barry. You are the one that wishes ‘death to America.’ In case you’re wondering, it’s wide open for all citizens to see. The public knows it and wishes someone in this cesspool of government would say it. Well, I said it. Now, it’s time to do something about it. So, put up or shut up, sir.
That, Sen. McConnell, is how you excoriate.
McConnell is set to bring the Iran nuclear agreement to a vote on September 8, after the August recess. It’s an up or down vote as the Senate voted fast track authority to Obama. Even if the Senate votes against the deal, Obama holds veto authority, which means the Senate would need a super majority to override the presidential veto.
Hopefully, the Senate will vote against this deal while securing the votes for a veto override. One can hope, but not hold their breath. McConnell has repeatedly barked then turned around to shove his nose back into Obama’s flatulence.
