Even the Democratic National Committee (DNC) wants nothing to do with Obama’s proposed nuclear deal with Iran, which allows the terrorist sponsor to inspect its own sites to confirm it will not develop nuclear weapons.

“Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz prevented consideration of a resolution at the party’s summer meeting here that praised President Obama and offered backing for the nuclear agreement with Iran, according to knowledgeable Democrats,” the liberal Washington Post reports.

Now a split Democratic Party is telling two different stories about the National Committee’s decision to run away screaming when asked to back Obama.

“A party spokeswoman said procedural issues prevented the proposed resolution from being considered. She did not directly address Wasserman Schultz’s role in the decision-making,” the Post reports.

“Other Democrats said that it was congresswoman’s direct opposition that blocked its consideration.”

Wasserman Schultz has not announced a position on Obama’s Iran deal, in spite of the fact Obama appointed her to lead the National Committee.

“I’ve had many administration briefings, I’ve talked to experts on both sides of the deal, and I’m going to go home and speak to my constituents who have been weighing in, and I’ll reach a conclusion on what I’m going do with my vote once I really feel like I’ve been able to thoroughly review the whole deal,” she said in July.

Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer has come out against the agreement, a devastating blow for Obama.

Hoping to stay as far away from the issue as possible, the DNC deliberately did not place a resolution of support on the agenda for their Summer Meeting last week in Minneapolis.

That’s when James Zogby, co-chair of the Resolutions Committee, moved to add a resolution to the agenda.

A panicked Wasserman Schultz scrambled to kill the motion on parliamentary grounds, hoping to avoid putting the DNC on record on what their own president intends to be his largest foreign policy legacy.

Opposition from Democrats is even more devastating to Obama because they are publicly renouncing him even though it will not stop the Iran deal.

While Republicans hold a majority in both chambers of Congress, and are joined by several Democrats, they do not have the two-thirds majority needed to overcome Obama’s expected veto of their resolution against his Iran deal.

“Congress must vote on the deal by Sept. 17, and while Republicans, who hold majorities in both chambers, overwhelmingly oppose it, they do not have enough votes to override a certain veto by Obama. Some prominent Democrats, including Sens. Chuck Schumer and Bob Menendex have opposed the deal, but not enough yet to override,” NewsMax reports.
