Senate leader to Obama: Stop demonizing Iran deal opponents

President Barack Obama is treating his drive to win congressional support for his nuclear deal with Iran like a political campaign, making attacks on opponents that need to stop, Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday.

Obama so far “is treating this like a political campaign,” McConnell told reporters. “Demonize your opponents, gin up the base, get Democrats all angry and, you know, rally around the president. To me, it’s a different kind of issue.”
