• Chris Matthews: If Obama Can Negotiate With Iran, Why Won’t He Work With Republicans On Immigration?

    On the heels of Barack Obama’s reportedly 10-point plan to legalize nearly 5 million illegal immigrants, MSNBC host Chris Matthews can’t figure out why the president won’t sit down and work with Republicans on immigration reform.

    “Please God have a meeting between the President and the Speaker in the House this week,” Matthews said Sunday on Meet the Press. 

    “Let me tell you something. We’re negotiating with Tehran right now,” Matthews added. “We’re desperately trying to cut a deal over nuclear weapons to the last moment. Why don’t we have negotiations going on right now between the two sides?”

    Indeed Barack Obama is planning to extend the long-standing deal with Iran which was first hatched in November 2013, in which the administration offered up economic sanctions relief for promises from the Iranians that they would curtail their nuclear production. That deal will end on November 24. But Obama is negotiating with Iran to extend it and he’s even looking for ways to avoid Congressional cooperation or approval of the deal.

    “We’re already kind of thinking through, how do we structure a deal so we don’t necessarily require legislative action right away,” Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said last January. “And there are ways to do that.”

    Obama really, really enjoys stiff-arming the legislative brach.

    And this isn’t the first time that he has worked with terrorists while giving the GOP his butt to kiss.

    Obama negotiated indirectly with the Taliban, trading five Gitmo terrorists, for the release of U.S. POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. And Obama has participated in back-channel negotiations with Hamas, an organization the United States has labelled a Foreign Terrorist Organization for nearly 20 years.

    At the end of the day, Barack Obama has shown a willingness to negotiate and work with murdering regimes instead of the Republicans. It’s utterly shameful.

    You know it’s bad when your childish, go-it-alone behavior on immigration is so ridiculous that even Chris Matthews can’t resist calling you out for it.
