".....he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."

"This president's foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It's got to be stopped." Mike Huckabee, July 2015
In the 2008 campaign, Huckabee supported negotiations with Iran.

Poising the GOP to lose yet another presidential election to the Democrats, Mike Huckabee tried to trump Trump. Huckabee, aside from not exactly being an individual liberty advocate......showed that while the GOP tries to portray themselves as the party of ideas, responsibility and intellectual maturity......they're really no different than the Democrats.

Good job guys! Why don't you just save time and money and measure the White House windows for Hillary's new curtains?


  1. The past doesn't matter.

    Look for some intense insanity while they jockey to be in the top 10.
    Then enjoy the debates and what the tea party has wrought.

  2. Leftists are not the only ones who try to stir raw emotion their followers and suppress objectivity.

    The deal is stupid, but he evidently has not gotten the memo that Israel can defend itself and will act in its own interest, even if it conflicts with the US's (and it certainly conflicts with Obama's, but that's Obama's fault).

    1. "but that's Obama's fault"

      No. Obama is far more respected around the world than Netanyahu. Bibi is known to be a real jackass.


    2. Jersey There's a few dozen nations out there that hate "Bibi" and his countrymen just for being Jewish. Some of them, like Iran, constantly call for their murder. 32 nations officially proclaim that Bibi and Jewish Israelis don't even have a right to live.

      Netanyanu could be the nicest guy in the world (and not a "jackass") and they'd still hate him. He is even handicapped some in the US, with our own antisemitic KKK, Congressional Progressive Caucus, Nation of Islam, and Occupy movement.

      So yes, good old fashioned bigotry accounts for some of the difference

    3. Obama's popularity has waned as a result of his continuation of wars and other foreign policy failures, and he has diplomatically hamstrung Israel at every turn.

      Bibi's "hard ass" is brutal honesty; Israelis pull no punches and telling like it is, regardless of how offensive it may be to more emotionally sensitive cultures.

    4. Don't forget all the jobs lost and the soaring poverty under Obama. Such that if the country went back to the employment and debt level at the very end if the GWBush admin, it would be considered as an economic miracle.

      It's the "economy stupid", and Obama has a poor record.

  3. Republican militarism on a par with McKinley and Teddy Roosevelt. Scary fella', this Huckabee.

  4. I was meaning world popularity but there is that too. Only his hardcore true believer, long-march base is left in the USA.

    jonsey conflated "respect" (which he seems to confuse with popularity) with merit.
