In His Own Words

Here are four short videos straight from Mike Huckabee’s official YouTube site. This is just so you know what Republicans value in a front-runner. (If you’re reading this via RSS, you’ll need to visit the YouTube pages directly.)

    Apparently Huck having a psychopathic son who kills dogs doesn’t raise any red flags about his moral values. Neither does how he played the system to get his son out of trouble. Interesting.

    I guess “boys will be boys” or something. It’s amazing how much the fundies can ignore about morality to get somebody into office who constantly professes his love for jeeeeeeezzzusss

    I believe life begins at conception.

    So… What part of conception? Entry? Deposit? Fertilization? Cell division? Uteral implantation?

    “This is just so you know what Republicans value in a front-runner.”

    Um, this is an absurdly broad statement.

    This is more accurate:

    “This is just so you know what many Republicans value in a front-runner.”

    I need to pick my jaw back up off the floor and have my face wired shut. I hope I can get out of this hospital bed in time to vote against this guy.

    Yes, it’s a broad statement. It is not an absurdly broad statement. Huckabee is exactly what the Republican party wants in a front runner. That doesn’t mean that every Republican approves of him. If you don’t like it, work to take your party back from the fundies.

    It doesn’t surprise me this religious right person is doing so well in Iowa, after all Pat Robertson beat out George H.W. Bush during the 1988 caucuses in Iowa. While not a televangelist he is cut from the same cloth being a preacher. I suspect his fate will be the same as Pat Robertson’s; he won’t last very long and Guiliani will ultimately win. That’s not all good. I think Guiliani always be trying to curry favor with that wing of the Repubican party.

    Here’s my rock-solid prediction of what will most assuredly not happen should this buffon become the Republican nominee:

    Either Clinton or Obama will oppose him as the Democratic nominee. Huckster will then Christ up even more than he is now, because he’s demented. Clinton and Obama will not recognize the need, however grave it may be, to point out to the country that we are electing a president, not a pastor. Democratic strategists have been so inept as of late that they can’t stand up for us even when we agree with them. They, however, will try to out-Christ Huckster, at which point I might begin packing for Sweden.

    Most of the country does not agree with this clown on most of his social conservative views. And, yes, I realize he has to woo the idiots to get the nomination in the first place. But in the general election, I can just envision the argument by Republicans that a vote against Huckabee is a vote against Jesus. You don’t want to vote against Jesus………do you?

  8. Ron Britton Says:

    I’m expecting Huckabee to flame out. Some of the other candidates, such as Giuliani, have had a high profile long enough that most of the dirt is known about them. People only started digging into Huckabee’s past recently. Stuff is starting to come out now, and the lipstick is rubbing off this pig.

    If I’m wrong, and he grabs the nomination, we’re in trouble. If the Democrats put up Obama, then it’ll be a matter of which candidate can out-Jesus the other.

  9. Agile Says:

    Ron,

    Huckabee is so flash-in-the-pan he may as well be a temporary mirage.

  10. Ron Britton Says:

    Agile:

    I agree. Historically, Iowa does not seem to be a good predictor. I don’t know how it and New Hampshire ended up in front. They skew how the candidates campaign, and they don’t seem to represent a fair enough cross-section of the country.

    The parties should put together a “Mini-Super Tuesday” of maybe four states to be the first primary. The four states could represent a good cross-section of the country.

    So are you predicting that Suckabee will flame out before the caucus and come in maybe third or worse?

  11. Agile Says:

    Ron:

    Huckabee is not a fiscal conservative, in the truest sense. His inclination to tax like a democrat makes him anathema to fiscal conservatives, like myself. With Democrats at the helm in congress and the senate (well, I think they are) a president with very conservative views about fiscal policy will be a major asset to mainstream Republican voters, many of whom are small businesspeople.

    Now, obviously, this is not what YOU should think or anything like that. I am just proposing that this is just ONE major issue that will tank Huckabee from the standpoint of a secular fiscal conservative, such as myself.

    People can believe in Jesus, or whatever, this is a free country. But if a Jesus-believing evangelical, like Huckabee, taxes the shit out of stuff, as he has done, he will NOT appeal to an overly ‘broad’ constituent of Republican-based evangelicals, no matter how ‘godly’ he appears.
