DEMS HOLD FIRE ON HUCKABEE; SEE ‘EASY KILL’ IN GENERAL ELECTION
Tue Dec 11 2007 10:27:53 ET
Democrat party officials are avoiding any and all criticism of Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee, insiders reveal.
The Democratic National Committee has told staffers to hold all fire, until he secures the party’s nomination.
The directive has come down from the highest levels within the party, according to a top source.
Within the DNC, Huckabee is known as the “glass jaw — and they’re just waiting to break it.”
In the last three weeks since Huckabee’s surge kicked in, the DNC hasn’t released a single press release criticizing his rising candidacy.
The last DNC press release critical of Huckabee appeared back on March 2nd.
[DNC Press Release Attack Summary:
Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) – 37% (99 press releases)
Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) – 28% (74)
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) – 24% (64)
Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) – 8% (20)
Governor Mike Huckabee – 2% (4)]
In fact, as the story broke over the weekend that Huckabee said he wanted to isolate AIDS patients back in 1992, the DNC ignored the opportunity to slam the candidate from the left.
“He’ll easily be their McGovern, an easy kill,” mocked one senior Democrat operative Tuesday morning from Washington.
“His letting out murders because they shout ‘Jesus’, his wanting to put 300,000 AIDS patients and Magic Johnson into isolation, ain’t even scratching the surface of what we’ve got on him.”
The discipline the Democrats have shown in not engaging Huckabee has earned the praise of one former Republican Party official:
“The Democrats are doing a much better job restraining themselves than the GOP did in 2003 when Howard Dean looked like he was on the brink of winning the nomination.”
A close friend to Huckabee explains: “Look, Mike is Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare. They should be squirming.”
Note to Drudge: This ain’t news. And it ain’t just Huck they’re holding back on...
While the line may be accurate, remember they thought Bush had a glass jaw on the economy in 2004.
It wouldn’t surprise me if it were true.
If Huckabee is the “glass jaw” then what would Giuliani be considered?
Well duh, we all knew that.
Gee soooooo surprising...NOT
In any case, we need to pray to God for His help and guidance.
The feather boa.
Well, to the Democratcheks, a mirror.
Well, the RNC looks at Clinton as the easy target so I guess they’re even. I suspect that both sides may be wrong.
Maybe the Dems have Willie Horton waiting in the wings to endorse the Huckster.
“what would Giuliani be considered?”
Guess we’re going to have to complete Hack-A-Huck ourselves then, while at the same time keeping Rudi out of the paint.
“Well, the RNC looks at Clinton as the easy target so I guess theyre even. I suspect that both sides may be wrong.”
The thing is the RNC will not ever play hardball against the DNC. The RNC had theirs over to the Clinton Testical Lockbox.
ABC (George Stuffolofgous show) wasn’t holding fire last Sunday. The main stream media spent the Sunday talk shows promoting liberal Rudy (nbc) while having complete distain (and complete ignorance of other points of view)(abc news last Sunday especially applauding) for the Huckster.
Well golly gee and surprise, surprise...
Yup. Poll 25% Republicans instead of 30% Republicans and 40% Democrats instead of 35% Democrats and suddenly it looks like a landslide in any stupid poll...........
Pollsters continually amaze me..
