“GOP Stars Go Gaga Over Democrat” is the very apt title of a WND news headline dealing with Sen. Chuck Schumer’s poke at Barack Obama’s Iran deal. The GOP can’t wait to find a bipartisan way into the arms of a hip and powerful Democrat like Chuck Schumer, who showed what he’s never concealed: he’s a hawk for Israel; a dove when it comes to the US. And and an all-round hypocrite. But Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee beams and creams himself.
Watch the other Republicans—except The Donald—do the same. All the Republicans who turned out the other night for a performance of a lifetime, at Quicken Loans Arena, can’t wait to get on the DC party circuit.
“Thank God for Sen. Schumer and his opposition to this reckless nuclear deal with Iran,” Huckabee said in a statement. “While I disagree with Sen. Schumer on most things, I applaud him for putting peace in the Middle East above partisan politics. Despite endless arm-twisting and enormous political pressure from the White House, Sen. Schumer chose statesmanship over partisanship.”
The former Arkansas governor said he hopes the decision will inspire other high-ranking Democrats to follow.

In recent weeks, two powerful Jewish Democrats in the House, Reps. Steve Israel and Nita M. Lowey, also from New York, announced their opposition to the nuclear agreement.
“Sen. Schumer’s opposition to the agreement sends a signal to every pro-Israel Democrat in Washington that they don’t have to ‘walk the plank’ for President Obama – they can stand for peace and reject this bad deal. And I pray that they will,” said Huckabee.
Schumer, the likely future Democratic leader of the Senate, announced his decision to oppose the deal on Thursday.
“Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their points of view that cannot simply be dismissed,” Schumer said Thursday night.
“This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval,” he said.
