National Journal Senior Political Columnist and Editorial Director Ron Fournier argued that there was no “sense, even in domestic policy, that he’s [Obama] an able negotiator and a savvy deal-maker” who can deal with Iran on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel. 

“Speaker Boehner’s right, why would you trust the Iranians?…There’s a part of me that says, ‘boy I would like my government to do everything it can to both leverage Iran to fight ISIS, and to try to strike a deal with them,’ but I just don’t have confidence. You talk about some high-stakes poker there, I just don’t have confidence that this team, this president should be playing in a game at that level, that they’re capable of it. I haven’t seen any sense even in domestic policy that he’s an able negotiator and a savvy deal-maker. This really, this scares me. Because there’s a lot of ways this could go wrong in very big ways” he said.
