Cowardly Cory endorses Iran Deal… immediately after it’s clearly safe!

You can’t make this stuff up, Save Jerseyans.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, Sen. Cory Booker (D-Twitter) has long drug his feet and refused to stake out a firm position on President Obama’s disastrous Iran deal. It’s clearly the most important vote he’ll cast in his first term and yet, for some unspecified reason, he couldn’t make up his damn mind…

Until Thursday, telling the media in a statement that “it is better to support a deeply flawed deal, for the alternative is worse.”

Why is the timing significant?

A mere 24-hours before Booker’s “big” announcement, Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland confirmed her support for the deal, bringing the number of senators to 34, the necessary amount to sustain the President’s veto in the GOP (nominally) controlled U.S. Senate. So Booker endorsed a deal only after it was clear that the deal was safe. Another profile in courage!

Of course, we’ve seen Newark’s ex-tweeter wimp out before under Administration pressure before, folks, but this takes the cake…

  1. It isn’t nearly over yet. The Senate has not voted. After that Obama will veto it and then there will be a vote to override the veto. We need to increase the pressure on all of them to change their minds before the actual veto vote. Then is when it will count. Everything that happens until the veto override is just talk.

  2. It doesn’t matter. He’s a lifer. Senator Booker will sit in the Senate for life…unless he is appointed to a Cabinet in the future or runs for Governor… Dems gotta vote that big D every November without a thought…

  3. Why were the “Christians” who actively seek Armageddon among the very first to trash most vociferously the “deal”?

  4. Na. When I met booker years ago I had high hopes for him. But after he became an Obama suck ass, he has a worthless future. It’s actually too bad NJ could really use a good Senator to improve economic conditions, by bringing federal money back to improve the infrastructure of the state and increase jobs.

  5. He makes better arguments against it than for it on his site. https://medium.com/@CoryBooker/supporting-the-iran-agreement-is-the-better-of-two-flawed-options-2cf8d84b6379 In addition he left out the very important verification … Here is a transcript of how Iran will be verified. Spoiler alert, it appears Iran is suddenly entrusted to monitor themselves by self reporting to the “agency”. Apparently history is no longer an indicator of future behavior. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/bedd428e26924eed95c5ceaeec72d3a4/text-draft-agreement-between-iaea-iran
