After Trump nuked Iran deal, Obama, Kerry, and staffers melt down on Twitter

Late in life I realized my country is schizophrenic absolutely and for that reason cannot be relied upon as ally. The leaders of nations would be foolish to put their trust in any agreement with us that is expected to go beyond the president's term. We're mentally unstable. The opposing party simply will not continue with a program initiated by the other, no matter how much time and money and lives were expended getting to it, no matter how close to success. With precious few exceptions. One party's successes are the other partiy's failures. Iraq is prime example.

We could have had a solid pro-American ally in a dangerous region with steady mature support working through Iraqui internecine factions until national character evolved, but nooOOOOOOoo. Instead, all projects in process are dropped like a hot rock wasting untold billions. And of course blame for failure reversed.

So it's fatuous to expect Trump to uphold a treaty that he objected to from the start, one he regards as more dangerous maintaining than abandoning.

Debra Heine writing for PJ Media has a roundup of sulking tweets by people prominent in Obama's  administration, including Obama.  Ben Rhodes hardest hit. He put up 13 tweets bemoaning Trump's action. He thinks Iran nuclear program that he assured us doesn't exist but is shown to be well advanced, will be easier to start up again.

Tommy Vietor, Obama's former national security council spokesman is disappointed that Trump didn't choose a more appropriate venue to blow up the deal, like a Boy Scout jamboree. He said the Middle East has been too calm lately, it's time to blow it up.

Where's he been the last few months? Off thinking up bon mots to the inevitable, no doubt.

Jon Favreau, former speechwriter came unglued. His flouncing is most unseemly.

John Kerry says way too many words for Twitter. He links to whatever he says elsewhere. But he's too pedantic, boring, longwinded and wrong to bother with reading.

Obama could not stop pontificating if he tried. Get this geopolitics 101.
There are few issues more important to the security of the US than the potential spread of nuclear weapons or the potential for even more destructive war in the Middle East zzzzz What? What? 
Barf. This is why we could never quite make it through one of his State of Union addresses.

John Kasich. Another statement too long for Twitter. His penetrating analysis is posted elsewhere.

Finally, something smart. Sean Davis with the Federalist says something interesting.
1) The incompetent Obama bro echo chamber years ago accused @SenTomCotton of treason for accurately predicting exactly what happened today with the Iran deal: an agreement struck by presidential fiat was rescinded by presidential fiat. 
2) The Obama admin lied about the Iran deal, hid its terms from Congress, and refused to submit it to the Senate as a treaty. Now that Trump has spiked it, the Obama bros and their media lickspittles are trying to pretend today wasn't both predictable and entirely their own fault.

The Lefties were so thrilled when Zippy made it known he was going to cut the US down to size; then Trump comes along and shoots it all to Hell.
