Appeaser He Is Not: Scott Walker says I’ll blow up any Iran deal, no matter what our European allies think

America desperately needs the kind of strong leadership Scott Walker would bring. It’s been a long time since America had a leader who leads from the front instead of from behind.


Washington Post reports the 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls are all but certain to oppose the emerging framework, and Congressional Republicans (with the help of some Democrats) will probably try to scuttle any deal before it is signed. But staking out a position against the deal — and trying to sink it — could prove a bit more complicated than it appears.

This is driven home by a new interview that Scott Walker gave to a Wisconsin radio personality, in which he said that not only would he undo any deal with Iran on his first day as president; he would do so even if our European allies wanted the deal to continue.

Walker had previously said that he would undo any deal with Iran on his first day. But radio host Charlie Sykes asked him a good follow-up question, and this happened:

WALKER: Absolutely. If I ultimately choose to run, and if I’m honored to be elected by the people of this country, I will pull back on that on January 20, 2017, because the last thing — not just for the region but for this world — we need is a nuclear-armed Iran. It leaves not only problems for Israel, because they want to annihilate Israel, it leaves the problems in the sense that the Saudis, the Jordanians and others are gonna want to have access to their own nuclear weapons…

This is the posture a legitimate president of the United States should take. A nuclear Iran is unacceptable under any circumstances. And this rogue nation who continues to be the leading state sponsor of terrorism around the world has done nothing to earn a seat at the negotiating table with civilized nations.
