More words of insanity from one of the most vulnerable Tea Part U.S. Senators:
Sen. Ron Johnson, the Homeland Security Committee chairman, says when it comes to a nuclear deal with Iran, he’s “not so sure” he trusts President Obama over the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
“Now, a President who was awarded the 2013 Politifact Lie of the Year, if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it, period. If you like your doctor you can keep it, period. They lied boldfaced to the American public repeatedly with Obamacare,” the Wisconsin senator said at a recent town hall in Cerdarburg, Wisconsin.
“I don’t know, I hate to admit it, but in terms of this framework, do I trust President Obama, or do I trust the Ayatollah? In terms of what the framework actually says? I’m not so sure I’m trusting President Obama on this.” - BuzzFeed, 5/19/15
But wait, there's more:
While discussing the nuclear deal the U.S. is negotiating with Iran, Johnson told his constituents about disagreements between the U.S. and Iran on certain details..
"Discrepancies—Secretary Kerry, President Obama saying, 'Oh we can inspect anywhere. This is totally verifiable. Totally be able to hold them accountable.’ And the Ayatollah goes, ‘Well, yeah, you can inspect, just not on military bases,'" Johnson said. "Now if you’re going to have a nuclear weapon program I don’t know, I think I put it on a military base, and we can’t even get in there and inspect."
"10,000 kilograms of uranium. President Obama says, ‘well that’s going to get shipped out.’ The Ayatollah goes, 'no it’s not,’'" Johnson continued. "Sanctions. 'We’re not going to lift those until they adhere to the terms of the agreement.’ The Ayatollah goes, ‘no those get lifted immediately.'" - TPM, 5/19/15
