Democrats risk sounding like they hate America. In the aftermath of Iran’s shooting down of an unmanned US drone, Sen. Schumer said “The president may not intend to go to war here, but we’re worried that he and the administration may bumble into a war.”

There’s no indication that President Trump is interested in military action. There’s a far greater likelihood that Israel would take military action than there is of the US hitting Iran militarily. Sen. Schumer knows this. It’s just that he couldn’t resist taking a political cheap shot at President Trump. It didn’t bother Sen. Schumer that he took that cheap shot while President Trump was dealing with a national security crisis.

That’s why I’m starting to think that there aren’t many pro-American Democrats left. With Democrats, it’s always about partisanship. It isn’t about doing what’s right. This should bother people, too:

Later in the day, Pelosi planned to hold a briefing for the House Democratic caucus with Wendy Sherman, who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear agreement that Trump withdrew from, and former CIA Director John Brennan.

Why on God’s green earth would you have one of the idiots that negotiated the disastrous Iran nuclear agreement and a political hack brief people on the Iran situation?

John Brennan is stupid. He doesn’t belong briefing a fifth grade class about bullies. He certainly doesn’t belong in a meeting on Capitol Hill briefing congresscritters about an international crisis. Then there’s this:

“We have to be strong and strategic about how we protect our interests. We also cannot be reckless in what we do. I don’t think the president wants to go to war. There’s no appetite for going to war in our country,” she said at her weekly news conference on Capitol Hill. “This is a dangerous neighborhood. A miscalculation on either side could provoke something that could be very bad in terms of security and our interests.”

She’s right. “This is a dangerous neighborhood.” It was already dangerous prior to the Obama administration. Rather than taking steps to make the region more safe, the Obama administration, from a policy standpoint, poured a gallon of white gas on the region by signing the JCPOA, which now has Iran at the brink of nuclear weapons capability. The JCPOA didn’t prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. It just put them on a predictable glidepath towards getting a nuclear capability.

Though Democrats won’t admit it, thus far, President Trump has handled this crisis perfectly. He’s worked hard to de-escalate the situation while Iran has tried escalating the situation. If Democrats don’t start showing a bipartisan streak, they’ll get tagged with this well-deserved cliché:

The only thing that Democrats have to offer is fear itself. Final point: If you’re a voter, would you really rather have Crazy Bernie, Sleepy Joe Biden or Pocahontas negotiating with the Iranians, the Chinese or Kim Jung-Un? Or would you rather have President Trump negotiating against those dictators or nations?
