Why Democrats Didn’t Want to Vote on the Iran Deal

By New York Post

To hear the Democrats in Congress who supported President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal — and then successfully filibustered it in the Senate, refusing even to allow an actual vote — you’d think someone was literally holding a gun to their heads.

Because it’s hard to find a single one who argues that Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry negotiated anything close to a good deal.

Which is pretty significant — given that the president himself long insisted, “No deal is better than a bad deal.”

But that was then. Now, his foreign-policy legacy — as he sees it — is on the line.

Still, the list of Democratic supporters’ objections is astonishing. (Imagine what they’d be saying if they were voting “no.”)

Like House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer: “This agreement is not one I would have negotiated, nor one I think should have been agreed to ... I believe this agreement gives too much to Iran and demands too little in return.”

… Then there’s Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who says he decided to support the deal only because former Vice President Dick Cheney is against it.

President Obama promised he wouldn’t negotiate a bad deal. But his own supporters have made it painfully clear that that’s precisely what he did.   (my emphasis)
