As we just found out, the Obama administration secretly arranged a plane delivery of $400 million in cash on the same day Iran released four American prisoners and formally implemented the nuclear deal back in January. Now the typically smug Patrick Murphy weighed in with his own in-depth analysis on the subject, calling these revelations “concerning.”
What’s actually more concerning is Patrick Murphy’s world view on foreign policy. Last August, in his statement expressing support for President Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal, Murphy channeled his inner Neville Chamberlain and stated his belief that the deal would lead to “peace in our time.”
As the Washington Examiner reported at the time, “Rep. Patrick Murphy, the Florida Democrat who is running to replace Sen. Marco Rubio, endorsed the Iran nuclear deal on Monday by saying it would help the cause of ‘peace in our time’ — echoing the infamous words uttered by Neville Chamberlain after he struck a deal with Adolf Hitler.”
The Washington Free Beacon added, “Rep. Patrick Murphy (D., Fla.) is coming under fire from fellow Democrats for coming out in favor of the Iran deal in order to promote ‘peace in our time,’ a reference to former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s famous remarks about the Munich agreement.”
So there you have it. Murphy’s take on Obama’s Iran nuclear deal was to reference one of the greatest diplomatic blunders in world history. Keep doing you, Patrick.
