Bye Bye Mitt
1/1/07 | Ebmiller

Posted on 01/01/2008 4:32:03 AM PST by ebmiller

Mitt believers, is that headache you have just the hangover from last nights celebration or is it today's polls!

The "gold standard" poll of the Des Moines Register has Huck with a 6 point lead with two days to go!

Today's Zogby daily tracking poll has Huck building a lead for the past few days.

Huckabee has the "big mo".

Yes--heading downward, which is where he's going to take this party if he's the nominee.

Huckabee is a joke, a Bible-thumping tax-hiking illegal-enabling buffoon who doesn't live his religion but uses it as a shield. He calls a press conference to congratulate himself for being such a wonderful guy for not running a negative ad, then SHOWS THE AD.

He is a pathetic person who talks God, God, God as if he's running for head minister, who claims to be a conservative but thinks my money should go to fund his liberal conscience and support people who break the law to come here.

I wouldn't vote for this joker at gunpoint.

Huckabee is sort of a cross between Clinton and Carter, without the smarts.

He's Clinton without the personality, and Carter without the D after his name. That ain't much.

Amen to that.

If Huck wins, it will validate all the worst stereotypes of the Republican party in the eyes of those who fear a theocracy in the White House.

The Huck should stick to preaching, and leave national politics to others.

The possibility of a huckabee candidacy almost makes me warm toward Rudy, and I can't believe I'm saying that... but that's how bad the GOP will suffer at the hands of this smarmy Baptist preacher.

And I'm a Baptist.

I’m assuming you’re a Huckabee supporter.

May I ask why?

The days when Iowa and NH picked the nominees are done. They are just a couple of rather insignificant warm ups to the important primaries in the next month or so.

I really don’t think the huckster will be around too much longer. The ads that he is calling ‘attack’ are just showing his stances on some issues. When even the reporters laughed at his claim of not running an ad that he then showed them just illustrates his lack of understanding on many issues.

Right on the money ... someone also responded that the Huckster is a combination of Jimmy Carter & Bill Clinton without the smarts ... which is true. The huckster is being promoted by the media types because they know no matter how weak the 'Rat eventual nominee is ... they can beat Huckabee. Huckabee is a joke.

Defending my nation's sovereignty isn't a tantrum, it's my patriotic duty.

That you consider my being against illegal immigration and high taxes wrong is very telling, though.

What a ridiculous assertion. Did he operate Arkansas as a theocracy?

America is in absolutely no danger of having too much Christianity though we hear this kind of nonsense all the time.

The real threat of Christianity is its embrace of the mirror. NOBODY WANTS TO EXAMINE HIMSELF CLOSELY.

It's funny how religious faith is OK in a candidate as long as he doesn't let it affect his daily life.

If a man's faith doesn't affect his daily life, where is it supposed to affect him?

I am sorry to say this but I think that is the ugliest family I have ever seen. What were they thinking? Stripes? A sweater in one color would have been a little better...not much. I would be so embarassed to having this bunch as the first family. I know looks don’t matter but good God...

One of those media types boosting The Huckster is David Shuster (MSNBC). Sorry for repeating myself on this but when Shuster promotes a Republican, take it with a huge grain of salt. He has ulterior motives.

It’s kind of a problem if his ‘faith’ makes him someone who does not or will not understand that we have enemies, pardons violent criminals who will hurt others again and embrace socialism and illegal immigration.

Think David Shuster. Again, sorry for this but when far left David Shuster promotes The Huckster, you have to wonder why. In fact, Shuster has gone so all out in boosting The Huckster, it has become laughable.

David Shuster is a far left "reporter" for MSNBC. Anybody here who watches him knows what I am talking about. Therefore you have to wonder why he is promoting The Huckster. Actually you don't have to wonder. Shuster is promoting The Huckster for now because he knows he can be easily beaten in the general election.

Those shirts reminds me of the “razzle dazzle” camoflage they used on ships during WWI. They should also put that “razzle dazzle” camo design on the dog’s fur to protect him from The Huckster kids.

The FUnnie thing about David Shuster is that he actually has a "tell" like in poker that gives him away. Whenever Shuster is trying to put one over on the audience, such as boosting The Huckster, he has a strange tight lipped smile when he isn't talking. I wonder if Shuster has the same "tell" when playing poker. Look for that "tell" and you know he is holding pocket aces.

The liberal media has such a low opinion of Republican voters that they think conservatives will support any Yahoo who merely thumps the Bible. The media is in for a surprise when conservatives don’t live up to their stereotype. BTW, no Republican candidate who disses Rush Limbaugh can possibly become the nominee. This also shows how DUmb The Huckster is. He got so full of himself that he thought himself immune to the backlash of bashing El Rushbo.

“Thanks for being such a stereotype, Iowa. Huckabee: Just helping out Rudy and McCain before he goes.”

I think you are on to something. I think the country club reps are pushing McCain and Guiliani so they can keep their slave labor. The country club types would not mind having a democrat if they can’t get an open borders RINO.

I have voted Rep all my life but when I think about it I wonder why when the people that have made me the most disgusted have been Reps. Nixon opened up China, Bush pushed amnesty and didn’t defend the borders, Trent Lott, Foley, and the guy from Utah, it was a republican congress that gave us NAFTA. I expect stuff like that from Dems, but I always expected more from our side. I will not vote for McCain or Huck or Rudy.

Romney seems to be okay. The worst I have heard about him is that he flip flops. Big deal. He didn’t cancel abortion, what has anyone else actually done about it. Bush,Reagan,nor W has done a thing to over turn Roe. Some say he is anti-second amendment. What he said was there are some weapons that should not be on the street. Is that so horrible, do we really need to have Bazooka?

Anyway, no one has said he enriched himself while in office, consorted with crooks or low women, and has proved to be a good family man. He is making all the right noises about immigration, and has a record of vetoing in state tuition for illegals. I have no problem with him being a Mormon, I am Catholic. I know nothing about what Mormons believe but I have never heard of an organized criminal gang run by Mormons, that is something I can’t say about Catholics.

The one the media seems to fear the most is Mitt. Another reason why I support him plus the fact that he has a spectacular record of administrative accomplishment. Completely turning around the corruption plagued Salt Lake City Winter Olympics was a huge plus.

Well, there was that gang surrounding Howard Hughes... However, I am also a big Mitt supporter and most Mormons are okay. In fact, yesterday I was surrounded by young Mormon missionaries when I stopped by the library computer room to check on something. Very clean cut types. (Okay, I was curious and HAD to see what they were watching together on the computer screen---scenes from the movie, "300.")
