Occasionally we suggest specific behavior by President Barack Obama should be remembered by voters next November. Here is another example:
Iran's government is working to construct nuclear bombs. Obviously, possession of weapons of mass destruction by the fanatics in Tehran would threaten the peace not just in the Middle East but perhaps worldwide.
Economic sanctions have been used by the United States and several other nations to pressure Iran to abandon the project. Clearly, the more pressure that can be exerted, the better. But that is not how Obama sees it. He wants to ease proposed penalties on Iran's central bank and on other foreign banks that do business with it.
Many members of Congress disagree strongly with Obama. And the president will not be able to claim partisan politics is behind opposition to him on this one.
Last week the U.S. Senate endorsed the plan with which Obama disagrees. The vote was 100-0. Not a single Democrat backed the president. Again, remember that next November when you cast your vote for president.
