Obama Would Veto Iran Sanctions Bill

Shortly after 26 senators signed on to a new bipartisan Iran sanctions bill, the White House declared it veto bait.

“The president would veto it,” Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters at the White House. Another round of sanctions now, Carney said — and the White House has repeatedly warned — would threaten the talks. The not-so-subtle hint from the White House is that if Congress pushes the bill anyway it would bring the nations closer to war when the American people would prefer a diplomatic fix.

But that clearly isn’t the view of many senators in both parties, given the introduction of the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013, led by Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill.

    This is so stupid. If Obama had clue one and wanted the Iranians to really dismantle bomb making he would encourage this.

    Uh Obozo doesn’t seem to realize that with the support of 26 Democrats, any veto of his could be overridden. AND their is no reason for the party to kowtow to him, he’s a lame duck.

    These Senators should be commended for continuing their efforts
    to make Iran nuclear free. Only thorough continued pressure can we ever hope to alter Iran’s behavior towards human rights
