Skip to comments.The Next President Of The United States... (Values Voters Pick... Mike Huckabee!)
Posted on 10/01/2007 10:22:17 PM PDT by goldstategop
Unity not only gets us a pro-family President, but it could get us an administration that looks something like this:
President Mike Huckabee
Defense Secretary Duncan Hunter
Director of Homeland Security Tom Tancredo
Attorney General Sam Brownback
Director of Heath and Human Services Alan Keyes
If we combine the votes of these good men, we move from the back of the bus into the driver's seat and select the nominee. It's not only our best way to win the White House, from where I sit, it's the only way. United we drive, divided we crash.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
A bunch of big government socons (except for Tancredo) who want to run your life under the guise of faith. No thanks, I'll pass. Typical WND drivel
Are yoy joking?
you that be :-)
Not necessarily. FReepers are opposed to politicians who want to regulate their lifestyles with smoking bans like Huckabee proposes, or to open borders like both Huckabee & Brownback supports, or reparations like Keyes supports.
I want a President, not a Daddy. I'm a grown man. Is that too hard to understand?
You know that is not fair to Duncan Hunter.
He is not a big-government kind of guy, unless you call voting for defense measures big-government.
I have already had my life threatened at least 10 times for being against illegal immigration. If they ever get me ping travis.
If Hunter isn’t going to show some draw, who is there besides Huckabee who can really lead the country?
Who that will not resort to posing and using technicalities such as their version of “federalism” to put obstacles in the way of the apriori principles upon which our nation was founded (Rights to Life, Liberty, and property).
We tend to focus on one man, and build him up or tear him down based on what we know of him ... and there is always the faction that knows more about him and says, "Well, yeah ... but .. " , and proceeds to explain what's wrong with him.
But as we all know, the presidency is an organization headed by a man, and if we knew going in, whom would be at what helm .. I think a lot of votes would be combined.
I admit, politics seems to be more convoluted than 20 or more years ago.
I didn’t include Hunter in my list, although Hunter does support limits to gambling and has a dismal record on spending. But overall Hunter’s not like Huckabee, Brownback, and Keyes is. He’s probably the most Reaganesque Republican in the race.
He is only half the package.
He is correct on most moral issues, the Death Penalty being the glaring problem.
He is definitely not a conservative when it comes to fiscal matters. His fiscal record while governor was lousy! He raised taxes and increased the size of government in drastic ways!
No thank you! No sale, no way.
And after his pandering performance at the Maryland debates, he ain’t much of a leader either!
Well, Huckabee is not an ardent supporter of the war so I doubt he’d let Hunter near it.
He supports amnesty so not a chance for Tancredo.
And even he isn’t nuts enough to add keyes to his cabinet.
I really don’t care what newt and a few of these people are peddling. I wasn’t desperate enough to demand newt get in, I’m not so desperate I’d support Huckabee.
Give me one good reason I should. Even on the issue of social conservatism, my guess is that we’re world’s apart. on Judges. based on his love of government, I think it’s fair to deduce he wouldn’t look for a Justice like Thomas...he’s look for the right’s equivalent of Ginsberg. I don’t want activists on the court on left or right.
I have not fought republicans these last few years to a) elect a Republican speaking out against the war b) elect a Republican endorsing amnesty or ) elect a Republican that would look for more of an activist judge them another Thomas.
Three strikes...he’s out. This social conservative just says no.
LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Gov. Mike Huckabee says he’s not afraid of risking his political future by speaking out against a recent immigration raid at an Arkadelphia poultry plant even though calls to his office have been “about 1,000 to one” against his stance.
“It seems like immigration is not the most popular issue in the world to take a stand on but we are talking about kids,” English said. “It looks like the federal government is being a great bully and these people are not committing great crimes. The outcome is these people don’t have their mom or dad.”
Friday, Huckabee said his repeated calls to Immigration and Customs and Enforcement officials about the raid have gone unanswered and he has asked the Bush administration to investigate the circumstances of the raid.
Here’s one. I am sure there are more.
"Pretty soon, Southern white guys like me may be in the minority," Huckabee said jokingly as the crowd roared in laughter.
The Republican governor, who many believe will run for president in 2008, also backed legislation that would have opened the door for illegal immigrants in Arkansas to receive college scholarships.
He's a good guy but he's just not my cup of tea. Being a conservative with wide streaks of libertarianism in me, I just want a President who'll cut my taxes, secure the borders, and leave me the Hell alone.
He has no chance of ever getting the nominatin so why even discuss him.
Oh, he’s not stupid enough to call for open borders...anymore. In the past...Now he’s using the same language as mccain and Rudy and Bush. watch where he starts to call it a pathway to citizenship....
watch as he denies it’s amnesty because he insists they pay restitution first (money for government coffers of course that he’d gladly use to support his nanny state) and insists they work. Then they get amnesty that he won’t call amnesty.
If it's a choice between a nanny state and being killed in the womb, I'll choose the former.
No way. Only Hunter and Tancredo are acceptable. Huckabee is a phony.
How come I can’t get an Attorney General Joe Arpaio, just once?
AMEN. He and the half-mexican (richardson) are like two peas in a pod. Both have called for a nationwide smoking ban.
Here’s a 30-second intro to a request he made of America’s best friend, Vicente Fox:
In a press release issued, former Governor Mike Huckabee took issue with the Tancredo campaign’s characterization of him as a pro-amnesty politician. Unfortunately for the Governor, the facts support the label.
Fact #1. As Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee denounced an immigration bill (Arkansas Senate Bill 206) that “would have required proof of citizenship to register to vote and would have required state agencies to report suspected cases of people living in the country illegally.”
(Doug Thompson, “Immigration Bill un-christian..governor says”Arkansas News Bureau 1/28/05)
Fact #2. As Governor, Mike Huckabee offered a proposal to give state funded scholarships and state benefits to illegal aliens.
(Laura Kellams, “Huckabee Plan would give aid to illegal aliens” Arkansas Democrat Gazette 1/12/2005)
Fact #3. Governor Huckabee supported a Bush-backed immigration plan that provides a path to citizenship for some illegal aliens.
(CNN 2008 Election Center, http://edition.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/candidates/mike.huckabee.html)
I second that!!
WND has lost it on this one.
For once Newt is right, and Huckabee is my first choice, but I will probably hold my nose and vote for Fred Thompson.
Mike Huckabee needs to stay out of my refrigerator and then perhaps I would take him seriously.
And second they would have to convince those named to accept those positions the named individual has not campaigned for.
With all that has been posted in the negative (and truthful) about Huckabee, I am surprised there was even an attempt to get this to gain traction here on FR.
Huckabee is good at selling - and comes across as a genuinely nice guy (haven’t we heard that about Bill Clinton too...), but in so many ways, Huckabee is one of the biggest Socialists running for the office. His nanny-state, big government, tax-and-spend mentality is enough to make a fiscal conservative want to jump off a bridge.
These kinds of Cabinet speculations are silly.
The nominee of either party it NOT going to load his Cabinet with a bunch of also-ran wannabes.
The winner is going to select his own people for those Cabinet positions.

Arkansas News Bureau | June 30, 2005 | Wesley Brown
Huckabee promotes 'open door' policy at LULAC convention Thursday, Jun 30, 2005 By Wesley Brown Arkansas News Bureau LITTLE ROCK - In a impassioned speech before hundreds of influential Hispanic civil rights leaders from across the nation, Gov. Mike Huckabee told a captive audience Wednesday that America is great because it has always opened it doors up to people seeking a better way of life. "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you," Huckabee said, citing the Golden Rule. "I have tried to govern that way and it stands to reason that I really do believe that...
Notwithstanding the poor use of spell check by WND, this is insulting. Janet Folger is losing it, unfortunately. Huckabee is not what she thinks he is.
That's the best you Paul people can do?
Keyes doesn't support reparations. He never has.
Those who say he does are just proving that they're either liars or that they can't maintain reading comprehension beyond simple sentences like "See Ron run."
First you support Giuliani. Now Paul.
Maybe someday you'll get around to supporting a conservative.
I would be stunned if Keyes supported reparations. He is about as hard line a conservative as they come. It makes no sense that he would take this stand.
No way Sam Brownback should leave his Senate seat for a cabinet post. Abortion loving Gov Sebelius would appoint another left wing Dem to that seat.
Defense Secretary Duncan Hunter
Dept of State John Bolton
Director of Homeland Security Tommy Franks

Dept of Energy Eliminated
Dept of Education Eliminated
Dept of Veteran Affairs Eliminated
Depending on who you talk to, neither do any of the others it seems.
I don’t plan to vote for someone who’s press releases sound like a Republican Bill Clinton. Lots of words, little meaning and plenty of posturing.
I don’t believe Fred said that. Source it.
And he's been elected to 10 terms, unlike Keyes who's the Bob Schrum of the GOP.
When I think about the huckster, I remember reading about the “Judas Goat” and Luke 9.62. After all, he was supposed to be a Minister.
“I have already had my life threatened at least 10 times for being against illegal immigration”
I have too.
Ron Paul is no conservative. He’s a libertarian. One with no regard for the inalienable rights to life and liberty that are supposed to be guaranteed to every American.
Which explains why so many moonbat leftists have signed on to his campaign.
Unfortunately, other prominent Republicans, some of whom are running for President, have caught the Ron Paul disease.
