Dan Riehl has really become sucked in to making nasty personal comments and being unable to rise above the fray.

He did not used to have such a problem with dissent.

I agree with you. I forgot about the book tour. Let us see, how she handles the questions. That will be a window for us to know more about her knowledge on various issues. She should be ready for the garbage from the mainstream media and keep talking to them

Yes, he is, isn't he? Weak and slimy. Always underhanded and devious. Man, he would be perfect as a loser bad guy on a cop show. The kind that no one suspects at first, but the one who breaks down and cries when he gets caught, begs for forgiveness, but the tries AGAIN to steal the cop's gun.

Yup. I could hold my nose and vote for Mitt because he, at least, tried to warn us about McCain. I think Ann Coulter gave the best evaluation of Huckabee-- a Jimmy Swaggart lookalike.

Huck has not only turned off 95% of the Mormons (who vote Republican by a 19-1 ratio) and 75% of the Catholics, but also 60% of the Evangelical Protestants who are supposed to be his base.

He'll up all those numbers by attacking Sarah Palin, who is loved by all three groups.

But it was all closed to the public. More over, she should be ready to answer questions from main stream media. She knows that,she can always walk into any radio show or fox news to do any rebuttal. Bottom line, it is time for her to define.

If unfavorability rate does not go down, it will be hard to get elected. When ever a candidate has more unfavorability rating than favorable rating, the rules are the same for demcorats and republicans. It is statistics probability and she is entering into that territory. So, she has to come out and talk.

"“I’m glad she’s getting the props — I know I’m not nearly as attractive,” he said with a guileless grin."

Meow! Huck's quite the catty beotch these days. Methinks he's been struck by that ole green-eyed monster.

If looks and attractiveness was ALL that Sarah Palin had going for her, half of the country wouldn't even give her a second thought or glance as a future leader. Huck's jealousy is glaringly apparent. He wishes he had her charisma, charm and ability to motivate huge numbers of conservatives. That, plus Huck probably senses that he needs to grow a pair. (not bloody likely)

Huck is a slimeball, he’s completely disingenuous.. he and Mitt both need to be jetisonned out of the pool quickly.

AMEN. The only thing that makes Romney worse is that Romney has more money and a tongue more silver using words that are pure music to conservatives' ears, like "The invisible hand of the market is more powerful than the lumbering machinery of the government." Romney is more dangerous because so many Republicans take him at those first words and hear what they so desperately want to hear, never hearing the REST of Mitt's words, which confirm that his actual political policies and proposals advocate the opposite of limited government. Romney is actually more of a threat than Huckabee because he's so much prettier both physically and in his facade of platitudes.

And you're right -- they BOTH need to be booted out of the GOP as any kind of prospective candidate.

Sarah Palin’s comments on Face Book, National Review Online, Wall Street Journal are living in the head of Obama.
He has commented about her comments re Death Boards, etc.

The wannaBees who will be a never was, Romney, Huck, Pawlenty, etc. what ever they may say, no one cares,
They will never draw the crowds Palin does and Palin has the base in the Republican party, the wannaBees are digging around in hope someone notices them.

Huckabee should never be trusted under any circumstances. Remember, it was Huckabee more than anyone else that saddled us with lame McCain as a candidate when he refused ti withdraw from the primary when any true sense of commitment to the conservative cause should have dictated he do so. Who knows what was promised to get him to stay in. It was clear to everyone that a large majority of his primary votes would have gone to Romnie.

I was not then and am not now in love with Romnie. I just knew McCain was by far a worse choice than Romnie and that he could not win under any set of circumstances.

The question will be whether the grassroots will support the candidate the national party refuses to support. I suspect that Romney and Hucklebee have the national coffers tied up already. Sarah will have to win on merit because the money will be elsewhere.

Gut-check time...again. sigh...

Because this:

Makes them sound perfectly fitted for the job of standard-bearer of the GOP.

Yep, he was the kid in school who tried to be funny but kept getting his arse beat, then cried to the teacher because no one listens to him.

I am certainly not a Romney fan, but I thought Huck's childish behavior in the primaries toward Romney was an utter disgrace and embarrassment. This, from a man of the cloth, too.

Huck’s been taking swipes at her for the last year, whether it was his comment that Palin looked better in high heels than he did, to his laughing it up with Couric at some press dinner some months ago. He’s going to start a book tour the day before she does, and he knows that her book will out sell every book he’s written combined by a factor of at least 5, plus she’ll draw huge crowds at her book signings, and his crowds will barely qualify as crowds at all. I’m not sure about what his shows ratings are, but I quit watching about 2 or 3 wedeks into it, but taking swipes at her is not the way to get her on his show. All he wants is a big boost in his ratings, even if it’s for one night.

Just remember Reagan, he was the bete noir of the establishment Pubbies, and finally after Carter, they all came around supported him. We may have to put up with an establishment VP, but I don’t see any romnoids or hucksters on the ticket. Best case would be Palin and McDonnel. Imagine a total conservative ticket?

..my criticism of Huck is that his politics are not as conservative as he presents--maybe slightly to the left of GWB

He is a former pastor who is a very smooth politician. The fact the he joined his nemesis Romney in not endorsing Hoffman last week should be a red flag for social conservatives who think he is so swell--Chuck Norris notwithstanding...

Many Catholics don't have a clue as to the power of the faith they belong to. It really is almost impossible to be a "great" Catholic by going to Mass just on Sunday, just as it would be for a Sunday-only runner to win the Boston Marathon. But you only need one really strong Catholic (fueled by the frequent reception of the Body of Christ) to lead an entire army. Look at St. Joan of Arc. -- Now, if Sarah Palin was to become a Catholic ... :)

You will find "The Heavy Hitters" at daily Mass. They are mixed in during Sunday, of course, but usually at the earliest Mass your parish has. Bobby Jindal is a Catholic, and he seems to be strong in his faith.

There is nothing wrong with conservative Christians of other faiths in a "usual" election for the United States. But this is no longer a usual election. We are fighting demons, not just people making bad decisions. That's why we need a powerful Catholic in office (who "lives" on the Bread of Christ). Kumbaya just won't cut through the darkness of what is now happening in The White House.

Palin narrowly won a Bill O’Reilly poll Monday night for the Rep nominee for POTUS. Huck 2, Romney 3, and I think Newt 4 out of four possibilities.

Anyone else catch that? After book tour Palin’s numbers are going up. She had a very excellent reply on Facebook to Pelosi’s midnight House vote on socialized medicine.

Mark your calender. On Nov 16th, Sarah will be on Oprah. On Nov 18th, Sarah will be on Hannity. In the following weeks after that, she will be on Bill O’Reilly and Barbara Walters. Let’s see how she does.

Sarah has to publicly make the case for herself. People want to see a candidate in the flesh and not hide out in Facebook.

No, but he can screw up the Republican nominee in ‘12.

Maybe. He sure screwed up Romney in 2008 and made sure we were saddled with McCain. Thankfully, good came out of that when McCain chose Palin as VP, but I'll never forget what a snake Huckabee was in the West Virginia primary, or, more recently, what a coward he showed himself to be in the NY 23 race by refusing to endorse Hoffman.

Quite frankly I am a fan of Tiger Woods and Sarah Palin. Both are good looking individuals but I couldn’t care less. Their appearance is not what attracts them to me. It’s all about talent and execution.

Huckabee, shame on you for trivializing Sarah for being a female by referring to her appearance.

One of the nice things about Sarah Palin, there are pics of her family not only on the campaign trail last year but in everyday doing when any folks do.

Then you have the one frozen Huck Family shot
I guess Huck still doesn’t want some to remember his one son was kicked out of the boy scouts for killing a dog.
