ugh! It is like a little Jimmy Carter. They want jobs and Minister Mike will give em jobs. People and markets make jobs not some populist politican!
MODERATOR: Governor Huckabee, how do you explain the decline of support to Republicans by Hispanics?
HUCKABEE: I think Hispanics want the same thing everybody wants.
They want jobs. They want education. They want to know that they’re going to be able to live with freedom. If the Republicans only got 30 percent of the vote, somehow we didn’t do a very good job of communicating that that’s what we would provide in terms of opportunity and fairness.
It says more about our party and our need to reach out thank it does about than it does about the Hispanic population of this country.
If we’re really serious about truly saying we want more than 30 percent of the vote, then as we look at issues like education we’ll understand that while the dropout rate from high school is 30 percent among all populations, it’s 50 percent among Hispanics.
HUCKABEE: We’ve got to change that by creating personalized education that focuses on perpetuating what’s good for students, not just making what’s good for the school.
There’s also issues and disparities between diabetes and other issues of health. So I think, if our policies reflect lifting people up, we’ll get the vote.
So if our government is incapable of making that process in that length of time, then we should do it in a way to outsource it. And here's why: When people come to this country, they shouldn't fear. They shouldn't live in hiding. They ought to have their heads up, because the one thing about being an American is, we believe every person ought to have his or her head up and proud, and nobody should have to be in hiding because they're illegal when our government ought to make it so that people can reasonably come here in a legal fashion."
Huckabee is using the old Pence touch back scam. He is pro-amnesty because he is "compassionate."
