Go Mikey H!

Well, the 2008 elections are rapidly approaching (unfortunately)… and I must admit, I am getting more and more impressed by Fred Thompson and Mike Huckabee.  Both claim that they will annhillate the IRS and/or the current US Tax Code (Thank you, Reagan!), and both claim that the number 1 focus of the politicos should be the overturning of Roe v. Wade.  Both want to go about it in different ways and for different reasons, but I’m massively impressed by both men… I just hope both can stick around for the finish.  Were I the one making the decisions, whichever one got the nomination would pick the other for a running mate… talk about your Conservative juggernaught…I don’t really have a whole heck of a lot to say in this post, but I was watching the replay of the Republican CNN/Youtube debate curtesy of the NY Times Online, and I wanted to pull this quote from Mike Huckabee, responding to a question about whether or not the candidates believe every word of the Bible is true… “Sure, I believe the Bible is exactly what it is.  It’s the word of revelation to us from God himself.  And the fact is that when people ask ‘do we believe all of it,’ you either do or you don’t believe it… [more amazing quoteness]

And as the only person here probably on this stage with a theology degree, there are parts of it (the Bible) I don’t fully comprehend and understand, but I’m not supposed to because the Bible is a revelation of an infinite God, and no finite person is ever going to fully understand it.  If they do, their God is too small”

When asked about the Death penalty: “…Now, having said that, there are those who say, ‘How can you be pro-life and believe in a death penalty?’  Because there’s a real difference between the process of adjudication where a person is deemed guilty after a thorough judicial process and is put to death by all of us as citizens under a law, as opposed to an individual making a decision to terminate a life that has neve been deemed guilty because the life was never given a chance to even exist.  That’s the fundamental difference.”

Anderson Cooper: “Governor, I have to press, though, the question, which–the question from the viewer was, ‘What would Jesus do?  Would Jesus support the death penalty?'”

Huckabee: “Jesus was too smart to ever run for public office, Anderson.  That’s what Jesus would do.”

Thanks for the laugh, Mike….. good luck in Iowa!

    DEMS HOLD FIRE ON HUCKABEE; SEE ‘EASY KILL’ IN GENERAL ELECTION
    Tue Dec 11 2007 10:27:53 ET

    **Exclusive**

    Democrat party officials are avoiding any and all criticism of Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee, insiders reveal.

    The Democratic National Committee has told staffers to hold all fire, until he secures the party’s nomination.

    The directive has come down from the highest levels within the party, according to a top source.

    Within the DNC, Huckabee is known as the “glass jaw — and they’re just waiting to break it.”

    In the last three weeks since Huckabee’s surge kicked in, the DNC hasn’t released a single press release criticizing his rising candidacy.

    The last DNC press release critical of Huckabee appeared back on March 2nd.

    [DNC Press Release Attack Summary:

    Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) – 37% (99 press releases)
    Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) – 28% (74)
    Senator John McCain (R-AZ) – 24% (64)
    Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) – 8% (20)
    Governor Mike Huckabee – 2% (4)]

    In fact, as the story broke over the weekend that Huckabee said he wanted to isolate AIDS patients back in 1992, the DNC ignored the opportunity to slam the candidate from the left.

    “He’ll easily be their McGovern, an easy kill,” mocked one senior Democrat operative Tuesday morning from Washington.

    “His letting out murderers because they shout ‘Jesus’, his wanting to put 300,000 AIDS patients and Magic Johnson into isolation, ain’t even scratching the surface of what we’ve got on him.”

    The discipline the Democrats have shown in not engaging Huckabee has earned the praise of one former Republican Party official:

    “The Democrats are doing a much better job restraining themselves than the GOP did in 2003 when Howard Dean looked like he was on the brink of winning the nomination.”

    A close friend to Huckabee explains: “Look, Mike is Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare. They should be squirming.”

    End of quote
    Interesting, no?

  4. I wanna be like Mike!… after the Democratic debate the other night the Republicans have 10 times a better chance to get the White House… Mikey Huck is on his way to Washington
