Walker tells world Obama lacks leadership, should stop attacking congress.

Republicans have decided that calling President Obama a liar and delegitimizing everything he's ever stood for wasn't enough, so they're now pretending he doesn't exist, by dealing with foreign governments on their own and promising to abandon any agreements Obama's negotiated.

Who could have imagined this ever happening? This is beyond radicalism, beyond racism, beyond policy that spells the end of the experiment we call the United States. This is a declaration of war by a party crazy enough to hold the rest of the world hostage. After all, they've done that with the nations solvency, why not foreign countries?

President Obama commented on one of the most irresponsible declarations yet by a presidential candidate, Gov. Scott Walker. While Walker has waffled on every questions he's never answered, it's foreign policy where he's suddenly decided to draw the line:
NPR: Obama scoffed at Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's suggestion that he would, on Day 1, revoke any nuclear agreement with Iran if he is elected president.

"It would be a foolish approach to take," Obama said in an interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep, "and perhaps Mr. Walker — after he's taken some time to bone up on foreign policy — will feel the same way."
Here's Walker's original comment on WTMJ:

"Absolutely. I will pull back on that on Jan. 20, 2017, because I think the last thing not just for the region, but for this world we need is a nuclear-armed Iran."
Here's Obama's response:

Here's Walker's bizarre response, which is true to his "divide and conquer" strategy for everything, suggesting Obama not "attack" his critics?

While the Democratic Party “flames on” again, with Sen. Chuck Schumer helping Republicans delegitimize Obama, Walker’s march to war is inexcusable. Walker might just bluster his way into the White House, demanding compliance from other countries in the region...or else:
"President Obama's failed leadership has put him at odds with many across the country, including members of his own party, and key allies around the world. Whether it is cutting a bad deal with Iran, calling ISIS the JV squad, or touting Yemen as a success story, Obama's lack of leadership has hurt America's safety and standing in the world. I mean, to me, it is, the concept of a nuclear Iran is not only problematic for Iran, and certainly for Israel, but it opens the doors. I mean, the Saudis are next. You're going to have plenty of others in the region. People forget that even among the Islamic world, there is no love lost between the Saudis and the Iranians. And so they're going to want to have a nuclear weapon if the Iranians have a nuclear weapon. This is something that just escalates right before our eyes."
