• Allen West ERUPTS on Obama Over Iran in the Middle of Times Square

    Former Florida Congressman Allen West didn’t mince words yesterday during his passionate speech about Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. West addressed a roaring crowd at a “Stop Iran Deal Rally” in New York City’s Times Square on Wednesday.

    More than 10,000 people showed up, according to the Associated Press, to march and protest Iran’s nuclear program.

    West came down hard on the Obama’s “weak” leadership throughout the negotiating process.

    Iran is the “number one state sponsor of terrorism,” West said. So “what message” is America sending by negotiating with them, while they’re still refusing to release “four Americans hostages?”

    West went on to compare Obama’s weakness to that of President Jimmy Carter during the Iranian hostage crisis. This is “no different than the last time we had a weakling in the White House when we had 52 Americans being held hostage.” West said.

    “I want President Obama to know one thing,” West said. “You may say that you have done something that no one else has done. You know why no one else has done it? Because it’s a damn stupid thing you just did.”

    A brand new Pew Research poll says “More Americans disapprove than approve of the deal struck last week by the U.S., Iran and five other nations to limit Iran’s nuclear program. Among the 79% of Americans who have heard about the agreement, just 38% approve, while 48% disapprove (14% do not offer an opinion).”

    Here’s a graphic depicting widespread skepticism about the deal Obama struck with Iran:

    “If people are upset because of what I’m saying, I really don’t care,” West added. “Because I had a father that stood at World War II. I gave 22 years of my life to make sure that that great beacon of liberty, freedom and democracy continues to stand. And I have a nephew, I have friends that are still serving on the front lines—and my commitment is to the oath that I took on 31, July, 1982, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
