It looks like U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet heeded our call on Tuesday to indicate whether he would support President Obama’s deal with Iran to lift sanctions and let the terrorist supporters run amok with nuclear capability.
Asked Wednesday about the pending vote, Bennet began an awkward, rambling tap dance about not taking a position
in public yet because he wanted “to get this vote right.” Then, he essentially wormed around to what passes these days as a straight answer from a Democrat politician.
Bennet said he has spoken to President Barack Obama about the deal and hasn’t yet taken a position on the deal, but, he added, “I have come to the conclusion that there is not a better deal available.”
“We are faced with a lot of bad choices now because we eliminated a lot of choices along the way,” Bennet said.
Translation, Bennet’s going with the “bad choices” and will vote for Obama’s “not a better deal.”
Bennet and U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner appeared on a panel together at the Colorado Oil & Gas Association’s annual conference. Unlike Bennet, Gardner was straight to the point:
On the Iran deal, Gardner said he will oppose the deal because he doesn’t believe it will stop Iran from having a nuclear bomb.
Rather, Gardner said, “this provides a patient pathway to the bomb” in a few years.
