There’s some static between Democratic and Republican members of Congress in favor of the Iran Resolution. After Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) used her time to talk about Iran’s nuclear program, Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.) gently shifted the focus back to “the people of the Iran.” Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) very subtly attacked the White House’s response to “what could be another Tiananmen”—America, he said, would “not remain silent.”

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the minority whip who has put out blistering statements about the White House’s response, spoke loudly and emotionally about “America’s moral responsibility to speak out on the protection of human rights wherever they are violated” — hint, hint. “I urge President Obama to follow the lead of this House,” Cantor said.

Berman kept taking moments in between the Republican speeches to argue that the House and the White House had the same goal. He can’t be surprised that

Next up: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), who has called the president a “cream puff” for not engaging with Iran. He warned that more silence would be a “betrayal of our fundamental principles” and a show of “weakness,” and reminded the House that he had been a speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan.

“He, too was told to tone down his rhetoric,” Rohrabacher said, smiling. “With his strong words, he ended the Cold War.”

Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) followed up: “The president of the United States has been silent and confused.”
