Expect Obama to respond to these Democrats with his usual thug style of retaliation: punishment, threats and intimidation in the service of the murdering mullahs.
High praise for Democrats who dare cross the vicious autocrat in the White House. Kudos.
It's always morbidly amusing to watch Obama get tough with principled Americans while kissing the asses of dictators, murderers and oppressors.
Obama will veto this good measure, despite the fact that his capitulation deal with Iran has collapsed. It's not a question of if it will lead to war, it's a question of when and with what, conventional weapons or nuclear weapons. Obama's "deal" insures that it will be nuclear weapons.
Senate Breaks With White House on Iran," By Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, December 20, 213
New sanctions introduced this afternoon despite White House pleas
A bipartisan group of senators filed a new Iran sanctions measure on Thursday afternoon, just days after the White House and its Democratic allies successfully killed a similar measure.
The White House released a statement Thursday afternoon saying the president would veto the bill if it passes.
The bill, sponsored by Sens. Mark Kirk (R., Ill.) and Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), would impose tougher sanctions on Tehran if it refuses to dismantle its contested nuclear program after the end of a six-month negotiating period.
The White House and its allies in the Senate fought tooth and nail last week to kill a similar measure backed by Kirk and Menendez.
