Discussion Topic: Would You Vote For Huckabee?

The latest polls have presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee atop the list of contending Republicans in Iowa. On the day after Christmas, a time when he says he would normally be hunting ducks in Arkansas, he opted for Hawkeye-State pheasants instead:

From an Associated Press story on Forbes.com:

Of four birds flushed by the party, three were felled. Huckabee claimed the third with his .12-gauge [sic] shotgun. He proudly displayed the birds and said jokingly, "See that's what happens if you get in my way."

He also jested about Vice President Dick Cheney's hunting accident in which a fellow hunter was shot. Asked why Cheney hadn't been invited, Huckabee chuckled, "Because I want to survive all the way through this."

Check out the full article and tell us what you think of Mike Huckabee. Would you vote for him?

I was, as I'm sure you guessed, being rhetorical about Tancredo's motives. I think we've all seen that the notion that a 'Balanced Ticket' will lead to a balanced administration is not one to count on. Politics makes for strange bedfellows!

Tancredo was a one-issue candidate anyway. I think he's probably running for VP. That would be a good way to retire and not have to tell anyone. I think McCain probably responded best to the tragedy in Pakistan. Rudy invoked 9/11. What a suprise!

I had to think about this for a while. You said you preferred Obama over either Rudy or Mitt. Have you noticed how the other side has attacked him? He's got more holes in his proposal than Swiss cheese. Yet, they harp on his kindgarden, selling drugs (no proof), Coccaine (no proof) and being a closet Muslim (attends a Christian Church). He might get my vote just for sympathy! He does possess above average leadership skills and also has some charisma. I just don't think that 1) He's ready for prime time and 2) The Democrat Party is willing to nominate a non-white candidate yet. I think the Republicans would, given a willing candidate, but not the Dems.

I was being somewhat facetious in stating that I would vote for Obama before either Romney or Guliani. I do not want any of them in! Obama can not do any of what he promises; simply ordering private companies to reduce prices or give away services isn't constitutional nor does it make sense. I've already mentioned why I am opposed to Mitt and Rudy.

Actually, I wasn't. The chance that I would vote for him is almost none. But I am upset that they've attacked him in that manner! They've said, without saying, that no black person will be the head of their ticket.
In the event that the Republican primary in Michigan is meaningless, I might vote for him on the Democratic side.

I hear you there, the negative campaigning and scare tactics just get ugly without giving any real information on whom we Should be voting for! I don't have a problem with voting in a black President; Colin Powell for instance would be better than a lot of the white candidates in this race! I've no doubt there are other super qualified black men and women who just aren't running because they have no desire to have their lives and their families face the dissection from party competitors and the media which Obama has been subject to!

It never occurred to me that you thought otherwise. I did the ages back in 2000 after the election and cabinet selection. I figured McCain would not run in 2008, and that GWB was grooming Colin Powell for this run. Suprise! I spend a lot of time being wrong. It would have been good strategy though. Also, it was Powell that made the decision. I still would have liked to have seen it though.

After his commment to the Southern Baptist Convention, about women should be subservient to their husbands, he can only be called a long forgotten phrase......a male chauvinist pig.

Michaux:
Actually that phrase is from St. Paul. It used to be read at just about every wedding.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Watching GMA today I was very impressed with Huckabee. He mentioned the Second Amendment several times unflinchingly. Looks like he may be our guy!

Greg,

It is a different Tommy. I will be Tommy S. from now on to avoid confusion. I don't know how I would start on the recurve! Got any ideas? I will buy one soon though.

I was on vacation from work and this blog for a few weeks. Good to be back!

Fully plan to vote for Huckabee. He needs the grassroots effort. Just got a CNN alert that he's projected to win caucus in Iowa. ThiS with Romney outspending him 10-1. Cause he's a good man! HUCKABEE FOR PRESIDENT!

Bubba

Stevie B.

You got it dude!

Huckabee in Iowa!
The only thing I like better than that is the fact that Hillary came in THIRD!!!!! Behind Osama and Edwards!

BUT, at least we have somebody that can give Osama a run for his money!!!

Huckabee/Thompson (?) maybe?

Bubba

Neil Smith

Any individual who brags about believing in a sentient, omnipotent, invisible diety and says he would post the ten commandments in the White House does not have the intelligence to be president. Period. C'mon folks, this is the 21st century!
