Dem. senator says Obama administration’s BS ‘like talking points straight out of Tehran’

While senior advisor Valerie Jarrett may be convinced that President Obama’s feeble foreign policy is effective, some members of his own party are not so sure.

Beginning with U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., who continues to clash with Obama over the possibility of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons.

“I have to be honest with you, the more I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran,” Menendez said during a congressional hearing. “And it feeds to the Iranian narrative of victimization when they are the ones with original sin.”

Menendez is beginning to sound like a Republican.

He joins Republican senators in calling for more sanctions against Iran, which Obama adamantly opposes and has warned that he will veto if passed by the Senate. Menendez is convinced he can get enough fellow Democrats to help Republicans achieve a supermajority — 67 votes — to override a presidential veto.
