After Getting White House Permission Chuck Schumer Announces Intent To Vote Against Iran Deal…

Before anyone would think this as some altruistic endeavor concerned about the safety of the Jewish State, I would direct your attention to:

…”A White House official suggested Thursday that Schumer’s announcement of opposition came only after enough Democratic support was assured to keep the plan intact”…

Schumer is, after all, the most transparent weasel amid the nest of DC weasels.  (Apologies to the weasel species)

Reid-Schumer

(Via CNN)  New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, an influential Jewish Democrat who’s poised to assume leadership of his party in the Senate, will oppose President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, he announced on Thursday evening.

“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,” Schumer wrote in a 1,600-word post on the website Medium.

“I will vote to disapprove the agreement, not because I believe war is a viable or desirable option, nor to challenge the path of diplomacy,” he added later. “It is because I believe Iran will not change, and under this agreement it will be able to achieve its dual goals of eliminating sanctions while ultimately retaining its nuclear and non-nuclear power.”

Schumer’s thinking on the deal has been closely watched since the plan to loosen sanctions on Tehran in exchange for access to potential nuclear sites was announced in early July.

He said in public comments over the past several weeks he was going through the deal with a “fine-tooth comb” and received briefings from top administration officials to digest the deal’s inner workings.

His decision quickly provoked criticism from several former White House aides.

Former speechwriter Jon Favreau tweeted: “Chuck Schumer, who said it was a mistake to pass Obamacare, now comes out again the Iran Deal. This is our next Senate leader?”  (read more)

    They know they have the votes, and the White House is giving Schumer room to play to his base.

    • The tentacles of the DC Kracken are interesting to watch.

      It’s now obvious that the White House is totally aware that Schumer’s base (and everyone else’s, for that matter) are solidly opposed to the Iran Nuke Deal, but Obama will proceed anyway, with or without the blessings of Congress OR the people it is supposed to represent.

      Schumer, in the meanwhile, is “given a pass” to express faux outrage over the deal, and a green flag to cast a “Show Vote” which he can later use to his political advantage when things turn South in the Middle East.

      Even more interesting is the response that his fellow dems will exhibit. Since he IS being groomed as their future leader one would think that they would fall in line behind him and ALSO oppose the Iran Nuke Deal. But they haven’t, and they won’t. Which is the perfect indication that this is just another scene in a Kabuki that the Dems are oh-so-willing to play out.

      I have to wonder, though, what process they use to decide which one of them gets the privilege of casting a “Show Vote” like this? It’s certainly not done on a rotation, or “random draw”, but more likely on a case-by-case need basis,and only then when the request is made by an “insider” who has toed the party line and “played ball” when favorite sons (like Schumer) have a need.

      Wouldn’t it be great if just ONE of them broke ranks and spilled all the beans about this dirty business, even owning up to his own misdeeds done in the name of “The Party”?

      Yeah, like THAT will ever happen…

      The American citizens have elected Obama twice. I’d say, in general, our population is pretty stupid.

      You’d be amazed outside of these sites how few people are aware of anything going on, even the Iran deal. It’s hard to imagine it when we are knee deep in politics, but the average person doesn’t know anything about Iran and if they heard an Obama news clip about it, they wouldn’t understand what the problem is.

      Watching family and acquaintances on facebook posting support for Obama one minute and then posts against abortion, supporting guns, etc… the next minute tells me the population is pretty dog gone stupid. They are pretty representative of the population at large not really paying any attention.

        I agree with Justice_099. Where I work, the only person who has a clue is the owner. Most of the workers have no idea what is happening. If democracy (actually, a republic) requires citizen participation, we are done.

          I don’t know the answer to it, but it absolutely requires our participation. Using the education system to teach kids about the duty to vote, giving them practice voting (we did this when I was a kid) could be the only way to correct it. IF it could be done without injecting bias.

          Back when our country began, it was only property owners that were allowed to vote. This required the participation of a very few. Those very few were most interested in the outcome of who became the leader and paid as much attention as possible. They were few, but they were informed.

          Unfortunately now, we just have a bunch of knuckle-draggers that walk in and pull a lever for whatever party they were taught to support without being informed on anything.

          For every informed voter, there are likely 100 uninformed cancelling their vote.

            No, don’t rely on the “education system” to convey a sense of civic duty to your children. That’s what got America to this point in the first place. THIS is something that should be done in your home, by YOU, and by injecting your OWN biases into the conversation.

            If you have formed your own political, religious and moral positions, then you certainly have an investment worth sharing with your children. Dinner time is a great time to have enlightening discussions with your entire family present.

I’m slowly trying to get her to see how much it does affect her life and most of what she complains about is directly related to it. Unfortunately most of the general public is ignorant.

    If true (which it not doubt is), this really highlights just how GUTLESS Chuck U Schumer actually is. I still hold out hope that the comment is just. WH hype/spin/etc., but like you all, I suspect it’s the truth. I hope Rs can successfully use it to highlight the gutless, cowardly nature of Chuck U and modern Dems in general. It’s a very Claire McCaskill move.

      Plenty of Republicans pull this crap, too. Most will only stand on principle when they already know their vote won’t affect the outcome. Just looking to score political points.

      A majority of the dems in the general public are against this Iran Deal just as much as the republicans. They had to offer up a few opposition voices to tame the herd and not make it look too partisan.

      There are always exactly enough Reps and Dems to pass bad policy or strike down good policy. The rest are allowed to protest publicly for optics. It doesn’t matter who has the majority.

    In other words, Chuckie is concerned about the large contingent of Jewish voters in NY. He met with Obama and told him that he needs to oppose the Iran debacle to keep him out of hot water with the citizens of NY. But, not to worry as the deal has the votes. Obama said fine, then had to leave for a golf game.

    Has Chick checked to see if he’s got Amy’s support on this issue too? After all, they have so much in common on the issue – Chuck can talk on how he’s screwed so many in the American electorate an Amy can probably go on for hours on her experiences in boffing Iranians. Both experienced in foreign relations with their own positions.This is what modern DemocRATic politics has become – you’d at least expect they’d have better writers.

    Never should have gotten to this point to begin with as this should be a treaty, not some BS “deal”! Why is no Republican (hello debate candidates) out making this very point?
