Report: Key Democrats could attempt to derail Obama on Iran
Newscast Media WASHINGTON—Key Democratic senators are considering whether to
break with President Barack Obama on diplomacy with Iran as the administration is
urging lawmakers to delay a new round of sanctions, according to news reports by
Press TV. At a meeting at the White House on Tuesday, administration officials urged
top staffers to postpone the legislation to give nuclear talks a chance to play out.
“A date has not been finalized yet,” a Senate Banking Committee staffer told The Hill
following the meeting.
The measure, adopted by the House of Representatives in July, would target Iran’s oil
export and its foreign currency reserves. The Senate was to debate the bill in
September but it was held back at the request of the White House as such a measure
would have derailed the nuclear talks, Press TV reported.
As president, it is time for Barack Obama to use the mighty pen to demonstrate to the
“blood-thirsty” warlike cabal attempting to suck the lifeblood out of the peaceful
negotiations, that he is not their puppet.
At most, the dissatisfied actors can only pout, like they always do when they don’t
get their way, even though men are not supposed to pout.
When George W. Bush felt it was time to lift sanctions from Libya, he signed an
Executive Order that restored normal relations between the U.S. and Libya. The Order
Bush signed was called the Presidential Determination No. 2004-30, and he
was able to bypass all the political theatrics.
At this point Obama has nothing to lose. He is not running for office anymore, and all
he has to concentrate on is building a positive legacy, foreign and domestic.
