CHRIS CHRISTIE: Obama is giving Iran a nuclear weapon. The largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world is moving towards a nuclear weapon with the permission of the United States. It is outrageous.
It is an outrageous thing to do, and the president now extends talks another week, another week.
You give them your belt, they'll want your pants next. That's the way it goes.
I said in New Hampshire last week. You wouldn't buy a car this way, let alone have nuclear talks this way. You can't look like you want the car too much.
The president is so worried about legacy, having his signature on an agreement with Iran, whether it is good for the country or the world. If you are an ally in the middle east, what are you thinking this morning. This is a bad thing for the president. I think he should just get smart about this. Walk away from the table, increase the sanctions. The Iranians will come back to the table...
It is not a good deal, and I expect that any American president would want to figure out a way to walk away from a bad deal...
They have four tons more of enriched nuclear materials than they said they would have when they signed the framework to get in to the negotiations. It doesn't look like that part of it has slowed them down. I think the sanctions have worked in terms of bringing them to the table, but when you are a negotiator on the other side like Secretary of State John Kerry, and you look so anxious to get a deal, of course they are going to try to get as much as they can. Walk away from the table.
It is the best way to handle this. Increase the sanctions, Congress wants to do it. Unite the allies and move forward.
They'll come back to the table the same way they did before, but they will come back knowing that America will not sign a bad deal for the U.S. and the rest of the world.
