His adoring media sycophants are desperate to declare anything a “victory” for him, even at the expense of national security. You know what’s scary?

With his domestic agenda stalled, President Obama on Tuesday turned to foreign policy to try to secure an elusive second-term win.
Obama has directed Secretary of State John Kerry to go after a nuclear deal with Iran, negotiations that will carry risks but potential rewards for a president nine months into his second term.
Experts on Tuesday promised Iran would be a difficult negotiating partner, and lawmakers from both parties have warned Obama that the softer rhetoric from Iran’s new president could be a trap.
