Fallout from Chuck Schumer opposing Iran deal: MoveOn blackmail, Huckabee support

The decision by Senator Chuck Schumer of New York to oppose President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal has rattled the Democrat Party, Obama supporters and garnered an unlikely word of support from GOP presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee.

“Schumer’s voice is powerful, and his politics are wily, but he alone cannot stop the international agreement, which Republican leaders in the House and the Senate have promised to bring to a vote in mid-September,” notes the NY Times as MoveOn.org supporters rally to withhold $8.3 million in support funds.

“We thought Schumer and the Democratic Party had learned this lesson a decade ago after the war of choice in Iraq. We want to demonstrate to those who haven’t made their decision yet that there will be substantial political consequences for those who want to take us to war,” Nick Berning, MoveOn’s communications director, told the Huffington Post.

“Thank God Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, has come out and said he will oppose the Iranian deal,” Huckabee said at the RedState Gathering in Atlanta today.

“We are being played for chumps,” Huckabee added. “Our relationship with Iran is that we are trusting the untrustworthy….I know for sure this is no deal America should sign on for, not at all.”
The Obama administration is presenting his agreement with Iran as the best method for avoiding military conflict over the Iran’s plans to develop nuclear weapons. Critics say the country hasn’t agreed to inspections and true limits, while chanting “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” – all of which points to an untrustworthy partnership.
Schumer said in a statement that “the very real risk that Iran will not moderate and will, instead, use the agreement to pursue its nefarious goals is too great.”
“It is a decision that many people, including our whip operation in the House, had been watching closely, no question about that,” said Representative David E. Price, Democrat of North Carolina and a member of the House’s informal team whipping up support for the accord. “I wouldn’t underestimate the importance of Chuck Schumer, but he’s not likely to reverse the situation.”
