GOP Star Mike Huckabee Brushes Back Rush Limbaugh, Criticism of President Obama
Hispanic Business ^ | November 19, 2009 | Joshua Molina

Posted on 11/19/2009 3:47:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Conservative Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, who is emerging as a top contender for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, is gaining some attention this week for his comments in defense of President Obama.

As first reported on the Huffington Post, Huckabee said some of the recent criticisms of Obama have been unfair and even "shameful."

Huckabee made the comments to the Hudson Union Society.

"When he [Barack Obama] was at Dover the other day, and went there to pay respect for soldiers, I heard a lot of people on the Right say "Aw, that's just a cheap photo-op." No, I think it was the Commander-in-Chief of our military paying respect to a dead soldier, and I'm grateful that he did that, and I was proud of him for doing that. And I think we all -- as Americans -- should give him credit for doing that."(continued)

How appropriate that this article on Governor Mike "Amnesty" Huckabee is in a Hispanic publication.

The Huckster is NOT a star and won’t be the 2012 GOP candidate. He has found his place as a pundit.

Huckabee is the media whore who held back his delegates to deliberately torpedo Romey’s nomination. I have no use for him whatsoever. Add to that his illegal alien amnesty view, and I can honestly say I’d never, ever vote for him.

Not that I would have voted for Romney, but to allow McCain to sneak under the wire was outrageous.

He’s a RINO from top to bottom . . . someone that the media would want to be at the top of our ticket.

I’d rather see General Petreaus or Chaney at the top with Palin on as VP. Can you imagine Chaney debating O’bozo?????

Now, now...I’m sure after Huckabee’s comments, he laughed and said a folksy limerick, and then proceeded to strum his guitar. Let’s not be too hard on him < /S >

Here is video of President Obama with U.S. Troops in South Korea today where he said to them at the outset of his speech, "You guys make a pretty good Photo-op." Obama aides are saying he will not make a decision on sending reinforcements to our Forces in Afghanistan until after Thanksgiving. . . . (VIDEO

Do not even think about a POTUS run in 2012. Stick to yapping and playing your bass and acting all lofty.

Huckabee is one of these so-called conservatives who doesn’t want to appear too shrill or politically incorrect. He only goes so far and then runs to the middle. He’s too wishy-washy for me.

Well, that did, Huckalump...now I can say I don’t even like you anymore. Who told YOU that you can tell me what I ought to THINK!

The man took 24 cameras and a caravan full of reporter with him! Had he just been paying his respects as a commander-in-chief he would have done it quietly and solemnly out of respect for those soldiers and their families.

He’s an opportunist at best and a sorry POS, mostly, who would throw his own children under the bus and take pictures of it if his mafia buddies wanted him to!

Get lost Huckalump!

USA Politics:

Huckabee: I'm on a book tour, too

Amid all the publicity about Sarah Palin's memoir release, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee sent out an e-mail this afternoon that solicits funds for his political action committee, Huck PAC, and helps to remind his supporters that he, too, is on a book tour.

The former Arkansas governor writes:

I have been crisscrossing the country on my book tour meeting with thousands of voters over the last few weeks and when people mention Congress and the Obama administration to me, they are angry about the out of control spending, frustrated that Congress has turned a deaf ear to their concerns about the health care bill and not surprised that our country is lurching perilously left.

I share their concerns. Big government is alive and well in Washington and coming to a neighborhood near you. The bunch with no rules and no accountability up in Washington can’t wait to create new rules for you and me. Why, before I went on this book tour I almost picked up the phone and called the White House to see if they had a rule against me traveling. It has gotten that bad.

Conservatives can send a message to Washington next November when we vote the Democrats out of office. I am personally leading the fight to elect conservatives through my leadership committee Huck PAC. To position us with the funds we need to get the job done, I have set a challenge of identifying 3,000 conservatives willing to make a donation to Huck PAC before the end of November.

Huckabee, who led GOP presidential prospects in a recent USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, is touting his latest tome, A Simple Christmas: Twelve Stories That Celebrate the True Holiday Spirit.

As USA TODAY's Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page wrote earlier this month, a spate of books are on the way from the Republican Party's potential 2012 contenders. You can read about those upcoming titles and Susan's recent interview with Huckabee here.

No Huckster, paying respect is what GW Bush did. He went alone without a legion of reporters and cameras. That Dear Reader took the legion of cameras and reporters is why this transparent photo op over the bodies of dead American Soldiers was utterly despicable and shameful
