The administration that has been wrong on just about everything is patting themselves on the back for reaching a nuke agreement with Iran after successfully killing off the definition of the word “deadline”:

Iran and world powers on Tuesday announced they had sealed a final nuclear deal with Tehran that will lift most economic sanctions on the country and permit it to continue many of the most controversial aspects of its nuclear program, as well as its missile development, according to initial text of the agreement and statements by diplomats.

The agreement, which was finalized in Vienna, would lift international sanctions on Iran and permit it to continue key elements of its nuclear work, as well as research and development.

Kerry explained to the Iranians that he understands how the sanctions inconvenienced their lives (Kerry could easily empathize because it was kind of like the time the delivery drivers at The Pearl went on strike):

Secretary of State John Kerry, in remarks to reporters, declared that “this is the good deal that we have sought.”

Iran will remain at least one year away from a nuclear weapon for the next 10 years, Kerry said.

Kerry also apologized for the years of economic sanctions leveled on Iran.

“We realize how deeply the nuclear related sanctions affected the lives of Iranians,” he said. “Thanks to the agreement reached today that will begin to change. In return for the dramatic changes that Iran has accepted for its nuclear program, the international community will be lifting the nuclear-related sanctions on Iran’s economy.”

Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal a “historic mistake,” but Israel needn’t worry, because Obama’s got their back:

That ought to do it! Chants of “death to America” also continue to be heard in Iranian streets, but that’s just due to local politics, or something.

Looks like there’s trouble in paradise already…

The wind-up:

And the pitch:

Well that didn’t take long.

Team Hillary hasn’t yet had time to gauge public opinion about the Iran deal, and it shows:

Update:

Hey, if Assad’s thrilled, it’s got to be a great deal, right?
