Obama Thinks a Deal With Iran is Just Like Obamacare, or Something

No small opportunity — it’s a big deal. This is probably the biggest thing President Obama will do in his second term on foreign policy. This is health care for us, just to put it in context,” declared Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes back in January, as heard in the audio clip above obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

What was he talking about?

Why, a nuclear deal with Iran, of course! Wait, what?

You heard that right — the Obama administration is approaching a potential deal with the thugs running Iran the same way they handled Obamacare. So, that would mean…a disaster? Because epic failure seems like the only part of the analogy that makes sense.

Bottom line is, this is the best opportunity we’ve had to resolve the Iranian issue diplomatically, certainly since President Obama came to office, and probably since the beginning of the Iraq war,” Rhodes said.

One would have to assume that this calculation has since changed, given that those remarks were delivered 11 months ago and we’ve now been sucked right back into the Iraq war. But when Rhodes said this in January, it just happened to be at the height of the president’s problems with the Obamacare rollout. Presumably, anyone with half a brain would realize that pointing to the Affordable Care Act as some sort of gauge for success is a fool’s errand. Then again, I’m not sure how much brain matter Mr. Rhodes actually possesses, so it’s quite possible he was indeed rooting for POTUS to have another Obamacare under his belt. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but this administration will always seek out new “wrongs” anyway.

As for how they plan on getting this done? Take a listen:

We’re already kind of thinking through, how do we structure a deal so we don’t necessarily require legislative action right away,” Rhodes explained in the unearthed audio. “And there are ways to do that.”

An unnamed senior Obama administration official echoed the sentiment in the New York Times just last week, telling reporter David Sanger, “We wouldn’t seek congressional legislation in any comprehensive agreement for years.” Fantastic.

In other words, not only has the administration been shooting for a “second Obamacare” in the form of a nuke deal, but this time, they don’t even plan on bringing Congress in on it at all. Talk about ramming something through.
