    If this deal goes through, President Obama will go down in history as one of the most evil and anti-American Presidents in history. President Obama actions show that he loves himself, his “legacy” and his ideologies more than he cares about the future of America, the American people and the free world. He has no courage, no moral compass. He lies to us as easily as the Ayatollahs lie to him. It seems he is not really clear about what the word “truth” means. For him, it seems to mean some relative and shifting spin that can get him what he wants. Hopefully, we, the American people, will stand up to him and be able to counter his self-serving intentions.
