Santorum: Obama Wants Iran to Have a Nuke

Posted by on Feb 09, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Well, this is sure to grab attention.

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday accused President Barack Obama of actively seeking ways to allow Iran to gain a nuclear weapon and suggested that the administration had betrayed Israel by publicly disclosing what may be a plan to attack the Muslim nation.

Santorum drew connections between the administration’s opposition to the Keystone pipeline project, which would bring oil from Canada to U.S. refineries, and American dependency on foreign oil and U.S.-Israel relations.

“We’re throwing Israel under the bus because we know we’re going to be dependent upon OPEC,” Santorum said during a speech in Oklahoma City. “We’re going to say, `Oh, Iran, we don’t want you to get a nuclear weapon – wink, wink, nod, nod – go ahead, just give us your oil.’ Folks, the president of the United States is selling the economic security of the United States down the river right now.”

It’s one thing to perhaps think to yourself Obama doesn’t have the best of intentions but directly accusing the president of wanting Iran to have a nuke enters a new realm. Santorum’s recent momentum may be short lived.

    This is actually brilliant. Iran IS moving toward nukes. Israel DOES feel let down by the Dear Leader. American Jewish support for JEF IS declining. And the military is now looking at “options” in Syria, while Libya and Egypt are coming unglued. And Santorum is taking the fight to the Dear Leader, instead of the other Republicans. I only wished he tied Keystone to the Canadians (our #1 trading partner) being compelled to trade more with China.
