Sen. Charles Schumer, the heir apparent to the role of Senate Democratic leader, late Thursday evening announced he opposes President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Schumer’s decision — revealed while the political world was focused on the first GOP presidential debate — is a serious blow to the Obama administration, which had been gaining significant momentum in support of the Iran deal among Senate Democrats in recent days.

“Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their point of view that cannot simply be dismissed,” Schumer. the No. 3 Senate Democrat, wrote in a post on Medium. “This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.”

    I think this is probably the first time I have ever agreed with Schumer. I must applaud him for his right decision. Some of that decision may be because he is Jewish and sees that this could be so very very bad for Israel but what ever the reason I applaud him for it. Let us hope that he can get a bunch of his fellow democrats to agree with him so that the deal can be scrapped.

    WE’LL SEE!!!!!!!!

  • Texas Dad

    Wow, there is actually a Democrat out there with a functioning brain! Who would have thought?

      So Tex, let me ask you: when Congress refuses to ratify this treaty and is able to overturn BO’s veto, then what? What do you foresee happening? A return to the negotiating table to demand a better deal? Total capitulation (surrender) by the Iranians? Or do you foresee the other 5 countries who were part of the negotiations start to relax their sanctions and begin to buy oil and sell arms or power stations or nuclear reactors to Iran? And the U.S. will be the only one left maintaining sanctions and totally cut out of all the profits these other countries are getting. I don’t think Halliburton and Cheney would be too happy about that.

      And since it sounds like you’re from Texas, let me also ask: How’s that Jade Helm thing going? Not much news lately. Have they come for your guns yet? Anyone been rounded up and put in a detention camp? They tapping your phones or Internet?

  • Wow, I never cease to be amazed and surprised when a show of old values pop up within the Democratic Party! Good for Schumer for displaying, for what I thought had disappeared, Common Sense on this horrible, horrible deal with Iran! Obama is a Tyrant who will sell his own mother to a pimp if he thought it would bring him a bit more power and money and being the Muslim that he is, he should never be trusted, as he has proved to be a massive Liar and Deceiver on anything and everything! I was a Democrat, until Obama showed up, and there was no way I was going to support someone who had his entire Past SEALED tight and who, I thought, only talked like the Inmates I used to babysit in the Federal FCI I worked in! Then it seemed like the entire DNC turned into a Loony Tune vomit bucket and I got the heck out! Maybe there is a chance some of the Democrats still remember what Honor, Dignity, and Integrity still is. Obama has no idea what the meaning of those words are!

    • I Seigel

      I think you’re giving Schumer and the Dems too much credit, Nitwhit. I think Schumer is declaring his opposition because he knows most of his campaign funding comes from the Jewish community. It’s not Honor or Integrity at all. It’s all about money.

      • I am afraid I have to agree with you on this one, Seigel, in DC it is always about the money, no matter what side of the isle they are from!

        • I Seigel

          !!!! OMG! There’s hope, however faint, for the world yet!!
          (And we now rejoin our feud already in progress…)

          • Lol, Bring It On! Remember those Famous Words, lol?
