Obama Refers to Iran Nuclear Deal Opponents as ‘Crazies’
President Barack Obama demonized anyone who opposed his nuclear agreement with Iran again Monday, labeling naysayers as “the crazies.”
“Harry and I drove over here together and we were doing a little reminiscing, and then figuring out how we’re going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems,” Obama said at a Nevada State Democratic Party event.
The name-calling continues a string of antagonizing from Obama. The president’s comments appear to include Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), the future Democratic leader, and Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), the former ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, with those who deemed to be “crazy.”
Repeatedly, Obama has claimed only two options remain for the U.S. and its allies: accept the deal and achieve peace with a nuclear free Iran, or reject the deal and condemn the country and the world to a long, costly war. Republicans, some Democrats, and many in Israel have dubbed Obama’s choices as a false narrative.
In Pittsburgh, Obama blamed opponents of the Iran deal as the same people who delivered the Iraq War. He portrayed Republicans as warmongers who would rather make the same mistakes with Iran rather than give his “smarter” diplomacy a shot.
“We’re hearing the echoes of some of the same policies and mindset that failed us in the past,” Obama said.
Obama then likened his adversaries to the hardliners in Iran, and said his rivals were against the deal to undermine him politically.
