Obama thinks his legacy will be having brought whirled peas world peace with his Iran and Cuba deals.

His real legacy? The most corrupt and vindictive Administration in history.

Via Washington Examiner:

New York City’s former top cop said Sunday that the Obama administration cut funding to fight terrorism in the city to retaliate against Sen. Chuck Schumer for opposing a nuclear deal with Iran.

“There’s a certain amount vindictiveness on the part of Washington aimed at Sen. Chuck Schumer,” Ray Kelly, New York City’s police commissioner under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York.

“Apparently they remember very well that Sen. Schumer did not support their Iran deal,” Kelly said, arguing the proposed cut “was aimed at getting a reaction from Sen. Schumer.”

….Schumer, a Democrat set to become the party’s Senate leader, joined New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city’s police and fire commissioners to blast a White House budget plan that would cut annual funding for the city’s Urban Area Security Initiative from $600 million to to $330 million….

Schumer statements drew a pointed White House response, an unusual reaction aimed at a key Democratic ally.

“At some point, Sen. Schumer’s credibility in talking about national security issues, particularly when the facts are as they are when it relates to homeland security, have to be affected by the position that he’s taken on other issues,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday….

    Schumer took the wrong approach to Obama’s proposed budget cut. He should have said that no one takes anything in Obama’s budgets seriously. The previous submitted budgets were not serious and so is this one. Confident that we in Congress will be mature and take national security seriously.

    And that is the response to Josh Earnest: Josh, at some point, the President’s credibility on budgetary issues has to be affected by his previous submitted budgets. This being his last budget submittal, isn’t this that point?
