Obama to Congress: Your debate is pointless, I’ll still get my way

President Obama said he wants a healthy debate on the merits of the deal his administration made with Iran. But it won’t mean much because he is going to make sure he gets his way.

“I welcome a robust debate in Congress on this issue and I welcome scrutiny of the details of this agreement,” he said Tuesday when announcing the deal that will end decades-long sanctions against Islamic regime purportedly to ensure Iran does not develop a nuclear weapon.

But critics, such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, contend that the deal actually will facilitate the state sponsor of terrorism’s obtaining of nuclear weapons.

“I am confident that this deal will meet the national security interests of the United States and our allies,” Obama said. “So I will veto any legislation that prevents the successful implementation of this deal.”

In short, what he said is Congress can go ahead and debate it but the debate will be pointless because he will ultimately get his way by hook or by crook.

Judging by this administration’s history, by crook is more likely.
