Huckster Huckabee

So President Obama has responded to Mr. Huckabee's outrageous comment:
This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.
But Mr. Obama's response is, I'm afraid, too tepid:
The particular comments of Mr. Huckabee are, I think, part of just a general pattern that we’ve seen would be considered ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.
What I would have liked to have heard is something like:
I would remind Governor Huckabee (assuming he was ever aware of the fact) that this is not just an agreement between the United States and Iran, but an deal agreed to by all six nations that have imposed sanctions on Iran.  And one of those six nations is Germany. For Governor Huckabee to suggest that Germany is returning to its Nazi past is simply outrageous.
