Where Do These 6 Republican Presidential Hopefuls Stand on the Proposed Iran Agreement?

GOP.PNGPotential GOP 2016 presidential candidates are in accord concerning the Obama administration’s proposed nuclear deal with Iran. They all say the agreement is dangerous for Americans and for our allies.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, one of the current frontrunners, tweeted:

Obama’s dangerous deal with Iran rewards an enemy, undermines our allies and threatens our safety.

Earlier he said:

The Islamic Republic of Iran — the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism — is on the march throughout the Middle East. President Obama’s deal…risks provoking a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region of the world, one that threatens the survival of our closest regional ally Israel and our key Arab partners.

Walker promised that, if he is elected president, he will pull the U.S. out of the international agreement on “day one.”

The parties to the agreement, the United States, Iran, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia and China are in negotiations to finalize details of the agreement by June 30.

Another top contender, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, said:

The reported details of the Iran deal include significant concessions to a nation whose leaders call for death to America and the destruction of Israel. Iran remains a major destabilizing force in the region, working against American interests.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio just announced his candidacy on April 13th. He said:

This attempt to spin diplomatic failure as a success is just the latest example of this administration’s farcical approach to Iran.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the first of the candidates to officially declare his bid, took a restrained approach. He said:

We’re still looking at the exact details, but (the language of the deal) suggests it will dramatically undermine the interests of the U.S. This administration doesn’t understand the people they are dealing with. They support death and suicide.

Former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina, the only Republican woman currently eying the race, said in an op-ed for FoxNews.com:

The deal that the United States has negotiated with Iran poses a grave threat to American security at home and abroad.

The Iranian government has repeatedly, flagrantly violated sanctions put in place by the United Nations. This is not an agreement which will make Americans proud.

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry, who ran in 2012 and is considering another run, told Breitbart News:

Americans and our allies are right to be wary of a nuclear deal with Iran that is riddled with concessions by the Obama administration.

    Tell Iran to go spin on a bottle stuck up their behinds, can’t be trusted as far as they can throw their camels. Blow it off the map.

    • Hgeyer

      So it’s better to NOT monitor their nuclear program than to be able to monitor it? The U.S. is only one of the nations that is working on this agreement. Should we tell all those other nations to go spin on a bottle too or do we work with those other countries? Oh yes the US is the only important nation in the world! The rest of the world just lives to placate us….

      • The Fox

        The U.S. hasn’t monitored Iran ever, just like they didn’t in Iraq, all Obozo is doing is giving his Islamist brothers anything they want and that to wipe Israel of the map and won’t ever happen but, nothing will happen with Obozo in charge, he is one of them. The other countries won’t do anything anyhow, so no big deal. The U.S. soon to be toast and not mentioned in the Bible and a good reason for that.

          The US wasn’t mentioned in the bible????? … … Perhaps because it didn’t exist when the Bible was written? You are on your own fool! I refuse to debate with stupid!!!!!

            Are you saying God didn’t tell us what would happen at the end of this present age?

    • Betty Jo Hvistendahl

      I agree with the above. Iran is trying to get something to protect them from israel who have a lot of nuclear weapons themselves. We do not need more wars! We should stop policing the world and quit interfering in other nations affairs. Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan agree with me.

      • doormouse

        PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM ISRAEL???????? What the heck does Iran have to fear from Israel? Betty Jo, wake the heck up. If Israel wanted to turn the ME into a glass parking lot, they could have done it years ago. The stakes are a lot higher in giving Iran a nuke than it was in giving Czechoslovakia to Hitler. Iran will use any nukes they get…..letting them have one will be the beginning of Armageddon.

      • gene1357

        B.J., The leaders if Iran have made it clear that they intend to destroy Israel, not the other way around.
        Dr. Paul does indeed profess that all nations have equal rights to nuclear power and weapons. He also believes we should have no troops in any other sovereign nation; should discontinue international meddling; end all foreign aid, and should not be the worlds police force.
        I agree.

    Our next President will have a major task before him or her. That task will be to fix the mess Obama has created and bring back Constitutional Law. We can not survive under Political Correct. We must return to Constitutionally Correct. We need a strong conservative who is willing to fight the liberal left and defend the Constitution. He or she must understand “We the People” means something. The voice of the voters must be heard. We need a President who will speak for the nation and not for their Parties Agenda. The clash between Parties must be stopped. The idea that Party Agenda is what governs this nation must be addressed. If this nation continues to conduct business as usual we are doomed. THIS COULD BE OUR LAST CHANCE TO SURVIVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC.

    • gene1357

      That Candidate you say we need is TED CRUZ. I’ve been following him for over 2 years. I never saw a BETTER Person ever in CONGRESS in my 60 yrs of my life. He is very strong and practices the Constitution, etc. He’s very strong with his convictions, beliefs, etc. NEVER Flip flops. All the others have. I did like Ben Carson for VP but found out that he’s bad on 4 very important problems we have. I was very disappointed.

      • Louise Goins

        I like Dr. Ben Carson. Would you please share your information regarding the four problems?

        • Waclaw Jerzy Borken-Hagen

          Louise,
          Overall, he is a nice guy. Perhaps even too nice to reign in the arrogant sharks the next president will have to face. There is endemic greed and corruption which will not go away without a fight, threats, and blackmail.
          Ben Carson is also week on defending the second amendment.

  • gene1357

    That is a somewhat impressive field of potential candidates. It is better by far, if those with only US Senate service credentials are removed.
    Serving anywhere in the US Congress in no way prepares or qualifies one for running an administration. Fiorina, Governors Perry, Christie, Jeb Bush, and Walker have Chief Executive credentials. But Fiorina brings what was once common in GOP hopefuls: Free market savvy and a winning record thereof.
    But look; A Romney is still a better choice, because he has success creds across the entire range and scope of free enterprise, private/public partnerships, and C.O.O. He fixes things right.

    • Hgeyer

      Fixes things right by sending thousands of US jobs overseas? Please put that 2% douce bag on the ticket again! Dems need an easy win!

      • gene1357

        Oh yeah, like that didn’t start 50 years ago.

        • Hgeyer

          Yes! With Romney’s father! Mitt just perfected it!

          • gene1357

            There you go again.
            I actually like Walker best, but I’m not sure he can win what has become a popularity pageant.

            as gov of Michigan in ’64 George didn’t have any moslems in his state as mich does today. Detroit was alive and kickin’ back then. M comes from excellent stock

      • ipsd48

        What jobs did Romney send overseas? Be specific.

  • jwright673

    We’ll see where they stand on the day the deal is to be completed. I find it more than a little odd that we are negotiating “a deal” with a country that has no regard for human life, especially ours and Israel’s. If there ends up being something, I hope it’s a treaty instead of a deal. Treaty’s put a lot of rules in place that if broken, the treaty goes out the window and it’s game on. Truthfully, I’d prefer to see Israel flatten Iran before this charade goes on any longer. Just don’t expect any help from the U.S.

  • Louise Goins

    Well the sanctions have been slowing them down. The only change in sanctions SHOULD be to INCREASE sanctions. Unfortunately the potus has an allegiance to islam, not Christianity and not The United States of America. The potus IS doing exactly what he set out to do, while ALL members of Congress and Senate could unite and impeach him they choose not to. An obvious reason? How about not upholding his oath to protect The Constitution? Is ridiculous the excuse given not to impeach, that it would ‘cost’ too much this late in his term. What is it costing The United States of America to allow this potus to fulfill his mandate?

    • Hgeyer

      Please tell me which parts of YOUR constitution have been harmed…… My constitution seems fine…….

      • Irving maddocks

        If anyone has to ask the question that you posed, it is obvious that an explanation would be a complete waste of time. It would be easier to list the parts that have not as of yet been harmed. The FACTS are that your false idol Obama the Destroyer has made attempts to circumvent most of the amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.

        • Snake Eyes

          Amen, rock on!

      • mac12sam12

        The IRS scandal was an attack on free speech. The Hobby Lobby case was an attack on freedom of religion, and also freedom of the press. Even the liberal rags complain about this administration’s lack of transparency. The 2nd amendment when they tried to ban ammunition for a popular sporting rifle. The 4th amendment, the government now has a search warrant on every American without needing court approval. According to the constitution 3/4’s of congress has to agree with any important foreign policy decisions, this isn’t a monarchy.

        • Hgeyer

          The IRS scandal an attack on free speech? Really? Didn’t seem to bother you a bit when liberal groups were targeted by the IRS when Republicans were in the White House. Were was this claim then? Hobby lobby was not an attack on religious freedom it was an attack on bigots that wanted to force their religious beliefs down their non-christian employees throats by refusing the rights they are entitled to! Nowhere in the second amendment does it say that we are entitled to armor piercing ammo! Do you need that to hunt deer wearing body armor? Even if armor piercing ammo was banned you would still be able to buy unlimited rounds for you assault rifle, unless of course you live in Massachusetts where Mitt Romney signed an assault rifle ban into law! If you think the 4th amendment was taken away from you you should blame the patriot act that Bush ran through congress with bipartisan support and stop blaming Obama when Republican congressman continually vote to continue it! And the last one, the constitution gives the PRESIDENT the ability to negotiate with foreign governments and congress the right to review and approve or reject such policy but not the right to negotiate directly with those foreign government. The senate republicans sending a letter to a foreign government to sabotage negotiations is a violation of Logan act and is considered to be treason! But it’s all Obama’s fault? Get real fools!

          • mac12sam12

            What liberal groups were targeted by the IRS, I would have heard that one in droves on MSM. Hobby Lobby was an attack on religious rights, the only thing that they wouldn’t provide was the morning after pill, not all contraception. Armor piercing ammo, there’s a lot of that ammo in all calibers and there’s never been one incident of a cop being killed by it, it was an attempt at make the AR-15 obsolete, FAIL! The AR-16 isn’t an assault rifle, and assault rifle by definition is one that fire semi and full auto, not available to the general public. An assault rifle is the military’s AR-19, or the Colt M4, there a blast!
            That’s correct, the Patriot act was implemented by the Bush administration (but..but..Bush) This administration took it a step further, typical commies. Stop blaming obama? He’s the first president in history who’s not responsible for his failures, Progressives, it’s always someone else’s fault. Great men take responsibility, losers blame others.
            As far as negotiating foreign policy, obama tried to brush off congress and failed. He thinks it’s a monarchy, but the queen had it wrong this time!

          • Hgeyer

            Some examples of presidential IRS abuse…. FYI! It’s not anything that is new! http://m.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/DC-Decoder/2013/0517/Playing-the-IRS-card-Six-presidents-who-used-the-IRS-to-bash-political-foes/President-George-W.-Bush-R In the hobby lobby case NOTHING was requiring them to use this pill that they are so opposed to! Should they be able to fire an employee for adultery or for for being overweight? They are sinful? Or is it okay for any religion to FORCE their beliefs on anyone? If my employer was a Christian Scientist should he be able to limit my healthcare so that it doesn’t include modern medicine for their none Christian Science employees? As far as the ammo ban that hasn’t been passed by the ATF (not Obama) just how would eliminating one type of ammo make it obsolete? I guess you aren’t really “up” on guns…… If the AR-15 isn’t considered an Assault Rifle why was it named an AR and included in Mitt Romney’s assault rifle ban when he was governor? And in the national assault rifle ban that expired? By the way the military version of the AR-15 is the M-16….. Most parts are interchangeable! Obama has signed two gun laws, both make it EASIER to carry a concealed weapon! He has signed NO anti-gun laws! FYI…. I am very pro gun and am licensed to carry in 34 states so don’t tell me Obama is coming after mine because that just ain’t true! And yes, when somebody else did it, blaming Obama just shows your ignorance. And finally, he “brushed off” congress by NOT asking them to overstep their boundaries and do something that isn’t their job when they can’t seem to do the job they actually have and work TOGETHER and pass a law or two!

  • ruby brown

    The over all problem is that the house and the senate are not being stern enough about anything they deem as a problem for the US. When they do, Obama uses his executive order to override their decision so he can go on with his agenda. Constitution was written for a reason, to make government work together for the US and for the Americans. The house needs to get a back bone and do their jobs to put a stop to Obama and his agenda to hurt America and Israel….what happen to the golden rule to not negotiate with terrorist!!!!! Everybody needs to start flooding your state government with emails, phone calls and letters from the American people to start taking a stand for the USA!!!!!

    Again a joint-USA-Israeli conventional airstrike on all known 12 centrifuge uranium-producing sites, plus ALL IRANIAN HARD TARGETS. With Marines and Army mopping up. In the 1980’s a military supplier US CAVALRY had a tie-dyed t-shirt of a B-52 dropping its’ payload. Stamped above the B-52 it said in painted silk-screen “WHEN DIPLOMACY FAILS.” I hope Cruz gets elected and annihilates this country with Netanyahu’s help. PS: I’m not a Chickenhawk who spouts off.
