COTTON: OBAMA IS ‘RISKING OUR NAT’L SECURITY TO SECURE A PRESIDENTIAL LEGACY’

A U.S. senator who served in the Iraq War has accused President Barack Obama of putting his own interests ahead of what’s best of the country.

Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan as a U.S. Army officer, said that Obama is “risking our national security to secure a presidential legacy” — namely, a nuclear deal with Iran.

Tuesday at the Heritage Action for America’s second annual policy summit, Sen.Tom Cotton (R-AR) said President Barack Obama’s one-sided attempt to make a nuclear deal with Iran is “risking our national security to secure a presidential legacy.”

Cotton said, “Congressional action should start with crippling new sanctions against Iran. These sanctions should be immediate. They should not be contingent on further negotiations with Iran. On the contrary, Iran is achieving through slow motion all that it might want in a final deal, exploiting the Obama administration’s desperation to keep the negotiations alive and for a deal, any deal. It’s time for the responsible adults in both parties of Congress to stop this farce. Risking our national security to secure a presidential legacy is an unacceptable compromise.”

Rather than continuing to heed administration requests that Congress refrain from taking any actionagainst the Islamic country lest it push them away from the negotiating table, Cotton argued that congressional action against Iran is overdue.

“Congressional action should start with crippling new sanctions against Iran,” he told his audience at the Heritage Action for America’s second annual policy summit on Tuesday. “These sanctions should be immediate. They should not be contingent on further negotiations with Iran.”

Further delays, Cotton argued, only played into Iran’s hand.

“On the contrary, Iran is achieving through slow motion all that it might want in a final deal, exploiting the Obama administration’s desperation to keep the negotiations alive and for a deal, any deal,” he said.

As a result, the senator argued, in the face of continued inaction from the president, Congress had to act to protect America’s national security.

“It’s time for the responsible adults in both parties of Congress to stop this farce,” Cotton said. “Risking our national security to secure a presidential legacy is an unacceptable compromise.”

  1. Down-size nuke, weapons across the board, dangerously low levels, placing Russia, China on top of us??????
  2. Record-low work force now in place because of the economy.
  3. Placing 50% of the country on welfare, food stamps.
  4. Destroying the health care system, local, regional hospitals, medical care and medical expertise as more and more MDs leave the profession.
  5. Using the IRS as a punishing tool of the American people.
  6. NSA having access to every e-mail, telephone call made.

  10. Exec amnesty, which is not legal under the Constitution.

    Need I go on????

    And, the military is being down-sized annually. Hearing 25 yr vets receiving orders of non-renewal. Lots of 20-25 yr vets, same. Military also will have record low numbers, while ISSIS, Russia, China, N Korea build up and up…????

    Those vets are the ones with strong track records, superior results, knowledge, loyal men and women behind them and true leadership skills – these are all the traits of military leadership that no dictator would want to keep around. Let’s pray that the good ones find a way to stay in the military because the Good Lord knows we are going to need them.

    Joeff, from what I understand from our friends in the military down here in NC, Attkisson and the media are NOT the only ones being hacked and watched.

    So if you have a friend in the military who dos not like politically incorrect articles / jokes, etc. it may not be because they disagree – it may be because they want to keep their jobs.

    This is the way a dictatorship works.

     

    How people will react after another attack is unknown, but it is safe to say it will not be positive.

    But we already know how Obama will react ~ that he just heard about all of it on the news. Then he’ll say he’s angry and we need to get to the bottom of it. Any blame (and that’s unlikely) will be heaped on the “system” and not any individual and so no one will be held accountable, least of all Obama. And then he’ll forget all about it and move on. After that, if anyone brings it up, they’ll be ridiculed for bringing up a phony story. His supporters will claim that continuing interest in the story is yet more proof that some people just cannot stand the fact that a black man is president.

    No bones about it. Barrack Hussain Obama is a threat and an active enemy to the USA and her allies. This country needs to shift from political soap opera to a genuine support action to save our country.
