Wow, all caps for that?
I absolutely agree, what a way to get press.
Man, you just can't make up this type of stuff. I'm not going to run these ads which we are now showing you to prove to you that we're not going to run these ads...
But glad to see there's at least one Huckster supporter around here.
That’s a depressing thought .
He may not be able to find Afghanistan on a map, but he might find a crocheted afghan on the sofa.

DES MOINES Mike Huckabee used the volatile situation in Pakistan Friday to make an argument for building a fence on the American border with Mexico and found himself trying to explain a series of remarks about Pakistanis and their nation.
Someone needs to post the Howard Dean scream sound wave. This IS the Huckster’s “Dean Scream.”
I saw the press conference on Fox News. The reporters were bwhah-hah-hahing out loud at him—and I don’t blame them!!
It sure is like amateur hour on the Huckabus. Wonder if this brain trust will be advising President Huckabee?
Let me get this straight - does anyone really think that by NOT running these ads on TV he somehow will benefit more? Rollins wanted to run these ads and pressured Mike to run them, but the candidate himself took it down.
Could be genious in the end, but we will find out. It is hardly a meltdown.
BTW - there are several FREEPERS who support Huckabee, but they have been treated so badly by the Fredheads that they no longer come here for debate. Me, I like to debate, even those who lack the intelligence to articulate their own position, but just regurgitate some label they heard their favorte columnist or talk show host use about someone.
Huckabee walks a fine line, sometimes with his foot on one side, sometimes on another.
The liberal media gets miffed.
The backers of other GOP candidates try to make hay, while Huckabee gets to the voters with positive messages, while painting Romney as an untrustworthy man.
Sort of like the unintentional cross in that Christmas ad that none of the Huckabee team apparently noticed.
And when newsies made mention of it, Ole Huck just did his best Ole BillyJ, “awwww, shucks, ‘twern’t nothin’ meant by it.”
I’m with Fred. But no it’s hardly depressing. There will be disappointments no doubt but it’s far better than class warfare Silky Pony Edwards, or liberal theology Empty Suit Obama or heaven help us, the marxist in sheep’s clothing Shrillary.
You need some perspective my FRiend.
Happy New Year!
Well I wonder what old “Bare Knuckles” Rollins has to say about this . Why are they pulling their punches ?
Romney says he vetoed a bill to give in state tuition to illegals and also a bill to give illegals drivers licenses. If this is totally untrue let me know, because I will vote for Mitt to hold the reins in on amnesty. I figure if Joe Arpaio can support Mitt on antiillegals so can I, and that is why.
Only of his commode.
I was really taken aback this morning, but looking at Huckabee’s latest ads, I think he will keep taking his chunk of the Iowa voters:
There must be something about Iowa that makes unstable candidates go off the deep end. First Howard Dean, now the Huckster. LOL
