Posted on 08/21/2015 10:12:15 AM PDT by nikos1121
Former Indiana Senator Richard G. Lugar became the first high profile Republican this week to endorse President Obamas hugely controversial nuclear deal with Irans revolutionary Islamic government. If Congress is unable to override an expected presidential veto, in addition to $150 billion in immediate sanctions relief, the deal will guarantee the same radical Iranian regime that openly calls for the annihilation of an entire nation state both the legal right and practical ability to develop an industrial scale nuclear weapons infrastructure along with the intercontinental ballistic missile systems necessary to deliver nuclear payloads anywhere on earth. Speaking on MSNBC, the 83-year-old former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee praised the Iran deal as the best available option for restraining the worlds foremost terror supporting state. Exactly how it would restrain Iran, the voter-retired senator did not say. Lugars comments, together with an op-ed co-written with former Democrat Senator J. Bennett Johnston, praised Obamas deal and harshly attacked Democratic Senator Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) 2% for being the first Democrat to break with the President. By becoming the first Republican figure to openly endorse a deal opposed by a large majority of American, and universally rejected by every single elected member of Lugars own Republican party, the octogenarian Hoosier continues his career practice of espousing foreign policy positions nearly identical to those promoted by Americas left-leaning foreign policy establishment clique. Lugar, warmly referred to as Obamas favorite senator by the mainstream press, first rose to national attention in the late 1960s when, as Mayor of Indianapolis, Lugar became known as Richard Nixons favorite mayor.

How many votes does he have?
Thank God this decrepit fool is out of the Senate.
New World Order Traitor BUMP
Nope...not a bit surprised.
Senile, Stupid and Drunk on Metamucil is no way for your life to end DICK.
Where is the baby with the shocked look???
Obama is funding the Iran nuclear program
Iran will use suit case nukes against the USA within how many years? 5?
All U.S. Senators voted for the Corker bill that made the new Iran nukes deal possible. Well all except the only sane one Cotton...
They don’t care if we get nuked
He’s been kissing Obama’s butt for a long time. I hate these idiots the GOPe has foisted on unsuspecting citizens.
One of the reason why he’s a former senator.
Former? Thank GOD!
Hmmm, maybe decisions like this are exactly why he is “former” senator?
hence the word former
Both Lugar and Obama have “beards.” Probably some communal toe-tapping in the bathroom stalls when both were Senators.
You're right. No surprise.
He and John Boehner like to get together from time to time and have themselves a good cry.
Dick Lugar = Howdy Doody in a suit!
This abject moron still trying to be relevant!
Lugar = Rhodes Scholar = stone commie
