Authoritarian Party leader Scott Walker tells Obama "to back off" Iran deal.

Remember when Scott "lil' Putin" Walker told then Governor Jim Doyle to back off the high speed train deal during his campaign?

Well, Walker’s back at it again, only this time, it’s a year and a half away from another election and he’s giving his orders to President Obama:
The Hill: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Saturday urged President Obama to abandon his tentative pact with Iran over its nuclear arms research. 

“We need to tell the president to back off from a bad deal,” Walker said at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition summit in Waukee, Iowa. Walker claimed Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, has despised the U.S. for decades. The foreign leader’s change of heart, he argued, was thus probably insincere.

Devoid of any historical reference point, Walker would rather ignore what the U.S. did to Iran for oil, and why they don't like us; the U.S. installed the Shah - a brutal dictator who killed and tortured thousands of citizens; the Shah "returned 80 percent of Iran’s oil reserves to the Americans and the British;" which resulted in Iranians turning to the radical cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini - yes, our fault; all of which brought about the hostage crisis secretly used to make Reagan look good, and Carter look bad. That's all.

And yet, Iran hasn't changed since then. Big surprise. 
“They have not changed much since then,” Walker said, recalling the Iran hostage crisis that kept 66 Americans in captivity between 1979 and 1981. “Their approach is still the same.”

“I get so frustrated with this president because he drew a line in the sand and then let people cross it,” he said.
