If there’s one thing that clear about politicians, it’s that they don’t ever tell the same story twice. When the spending of George W. Bush is in question, Senator Barack Hussein Obama is willing to go to the mat to defend the American people and the colossal waste of tax dollars. A few years later and he, as president, suddenly finds a whole lot to like about spending money the taxpayers can’t afford and the government doesn’t have!
The same is true of John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, who voted for the Iraq War before they were against it. The political double-speak is not new and it is certainly not ashamed to cross party lines and infect both sides. John McCain just recently broke a campaign promise to Arizonans that he would vote to Repeal and Replace ObamaCare. As we all now know, he never had any intentions of doing so.
Chuck Schumer, the king of back-pedaling, just recently decided that the Obama-era Iran Nuclear Deal was suddenly looking a lot better than it did when it was first proposed two years ago and he voted against it. Now, of course, since Donald Trump is trying to get rid of the deal, Schumer is the Iran Nuclear Deal’s biggest cheerleader! But Trump won’t let him get away with this, and dropped 5 words to set Schumer in his place: “Tell that to Israel, Chuck!”
The Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump slammed New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for backing the Iran deal two years after he opposed it.
“Senator Schumer hated the Iran deal made by President Obama, but now that I am involved, he is OK with it,” Trump tweeted Monday. “Tell that to Israel, Chuck!”

The Senate Democratic minority leader over the weekend voiced his support for the current deal after Trump announced Friday that he would not certify Iran’s compliance with the 2015 deal put in place by former President Barack Obama.
“I had a great deal of misgivings about the Iran nuclear deal,” Schumer said during a press conference in New York City. “I voted against it but now we ought to see, give it time to work,” Schumer said.
Schumer voted against the Iran deal in 2015, saying that there was a “very real risk that Iran will not moderate and will, instead, use the agreement to pursue its nefarious goals.”
In November 2016, however, Schumer said that the U.S. should “I’m willing to try. I think the jury’s still out, and I’m willing to wait another year or two,” Schumer told Politico.
The senator has never come off as someone genuine or real. This is a man who graduated from law school and, before practicing even one single day as an attorney, quit to become a politician. He’s been a politican ever since. In other words, he has never held a job in his entire life that wasn’t being footed completely by the taxpayer.
If he was a man of principle and stood on his word as a US Senator and New Yorker, he would end this obstructionist objection to all things Trump and get the job done to make both Americans and their allies abroad safer and more secure. Sadly, I don’t see that happening.
