Huckabee Reveals His Alternative To The Iran Deal

Mike Huckabee was on Fox News' Outnumbered yesterday and laid out his own plan to deal with Iran that's way better than the one we currently got from Adolf Chamberlain Obama:

The third option is to develop U.S. energy so that we become the exporter of energy to Europe, Africa and Asia. We take the Russians and the Saudis out of the energy export business. We bankrupt the Iranians. If they don't have any money it's hard for them to build a bomb.
 I have to say, this is definitely a new one. The typical Republican alternative to Obama's Iran deal so far has been to increase the number of instances of stink eye when dealing with Iranian officials. But Huckster seems to have a pretty interesting take.

And by "interesting" I mean "completely nonsensical". What on Earth does he mean "take the Russians and the Saudis out of the energy export business"? Those are the the top oil exporting countries in the world, with the U.S. being pretty far down the list. How exactly are we going to do that?

I think Huckabee should probably stick to needlessly invoking Godwin's Law.


  1. Hell, why not revive the MK-ULTRA program so we can do mind-control on the Iranian regime? It's every bit as realistic as Huck's plan to run the Russians and Saudis out of the energy business in a shorter amount of time than it would take the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons free of the strictures of the current deal.

  2. Let's not give Huckster anymore ideas.
