Huckabee again defends (Cop Killer) Clemmons pardon. Would do it again.
Seattle Times ^ | 6-21-10 | Jim Brunner

Posted on 06/28/2010 5:41:44 PM PDT by NavyCanDo

As he has before, Huckabee defends his decision to the New Yorker, saying Clemmons' prison sentence was unjust given what he knew at the time.

In Arkansas, Huckabee commuted the sentence of Maurice Clemmons, who went on to shoot four police officers in Washington last year. Given the same information he had then, Huckabee says, he would make the same decision.

Maybe he saw what megalomania has done for ObaMao and wants to develop the same talent for himself.

I feel like vomiting when I hear politicians make ridiculous statements like this. The Huckster is unfit for high office.

I was extremely concerned about this when it first hit the news, but given the circumstances of the pardon and the timing of the events I can certainly see how this is utterly defensible by Huckabee and justifiable. I would vote for him to be POTUS any day of the week and probably will do so. Maybe over PALIN.

In my book, Huckabee is an accessory to the murders of 4 police officers, and an urepentant one at that.

If justice was served, Huckabee would be serving life in prison, without parole.

Making the horrible and deadly decision to release Clemmons proved Huckabee a dangerous fool. Saying he would do it again proves that he is pure evil to the core. It is no surprise he raised a dog killer.

He is as evil as any Democrat, including Obama.

The Huckster pardoned more convicts than all the bordering states (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri and Oklahoma) combined.

Hey Huck, why don’t you just stick to bass playing.... You really, really need the practice anyway. Really!

And by the way, I’m a pro bass player myself so I know what I’m talking about.

Correct on all of your thoughts imo. To think there are fellow FReepers who champion this jerk....well, just hard to believe. Let them stand before the family’s of those 4 murdered policemen from Seattle and defend this idiot.

With you on this one, ExSoldier.

Also, unlike McCain, Sphincter, Graham and about 99% of all incumbent politicians, Huckabee is standing behind his decision.

He gets points in my book for that.

He pardoned a burglar who had no violent crimes against any persons. He ha spent the time. He had no record of violence, so he could not forsee this action that was taken. No history of a violent offender.

We are so used to pretend Christian politicians that, when one acts truely Christian, we sometimes see it as weakness. Does anyone really believe Huck would have shown clemency to this guy if he thought that this might happen?

Huckahillbilly is a wannabe televangelist and a fake Christian.

Please wake up!

A Cristian socialist is still a SOCIALIST! and Huck has shown he is more than willing to expand the state for his "Christian" principles...the guy is as oily as Clinton.

His candidacy split the conservative vote in '08 and led to McCain getting in by default. All the Dems I know are always saying how they think he's the Republican's "best hope"...yeah, for re-electing a democrat.

No Thanks. He's probably the only Republican I would stay home rather than vote for.

His judgment is seriously flawed.

Well, he released a man who had raped a young girl who was walking home one evening. This girl had a meeting with Huckabee and begged him not to release this evil man. Huckabee, in his infinte wisdom released him and he ended up raping and murdering people here in Missouri. But I’m sure that Huckabee stande by that decision too.

Huckabee is a weak, mean spirited, social climbing, fat clown who has just a handful of disciples left who troll FR. It's really quit amusing..

Put a fork in him, ya'll.

That is totally incorrect. Clemmons was imprisoned for multiple violent robberies and made threats against a judge. I believe he also assaulted a court officer.

He was a violent animal and the prosector, judge and jury all recognized this. But, Huckabee, in his evil arrogance, nullified the decision of the justice system and killed 4 cops.

Since when is standing by horrible decisions that destroy innocent lives a virtue?

A good man learns from his bad decisions. Clearly, Huckabee has learned nothing. He is a foolish, evil man, who has the blood of 4 police officers on his hands.

“We are so used to pretend Christian politicians that, when one acts truely Christian, we sometimes see it as weakness.”

Forgiving those who wrong YOU is Christian. Unleashing violent monsters on society, so they can rape and murder innocent people is DEMONIC!

“Does anyone really believe Huck would have shown clemency to this guy if he thought that this might happen?”

Well, Huckabee says he made the right call, when he pardoned the mass murdeer, so YES.

Foolish for certain. And a man who can't admit to his own mistakes in life is the biggest fool of all. Like I said he and the Tacoma Judge who accepted bail on a guy up for a life sentence should both be held accountable.

Huck had outlived his shelf life. The pardons and what transpired with the pardons has tainted his chances.

The dems have a folder on this somewhere all ready to unleash.

He should stick to his gig on FOX.

Huckabee is a heretic. He’s a big spending, pro-criminal liberal. Here are just a few things you should know about him before you decide to vote for him.

Everybody has feet of clay. Look at the crap dug up on Palin much of which looks pretty damning. We know it's not but that just proves the previous assertion. Everybody has feet of clay. I'm still with holding judgment on Huckabee. He's a Christian of that I have no doubt. You calling him a Heretic only makes me doubt YOU.

It’s heresy to claim that it is racist and un-Christian to ask for verified identification for voting and denying taxpayer funded benefits and services to those illegally in our country.

http://www.diggersrealm.com/mt/archives/000718.html

Huckabee claimed giving illegal aliens drivers’ licenses is our Christian duty. “It’s our Christian duty,” Huckabee explained, “we must be compassionate toward the illegal aliens and treat them like Americans.”

Pelosi: “And I said, I want you to speak about it from the pulpit. Some (who) oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews, and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the gospels.”

It is not Christian to aid criminals in the commission of their crimes. The Christian position is to forgive them when they repent and stop their criminal activity. Anyone who claims it is Christian to aid criminals to continue committing crimes is a heretic.

“Calling global warming a “moral issue” mandating “a biblical duty” to prevent climate change, he has endorsed a cap-and-trade system that is anathema to the free market.”
The False Conservative, Robert Novak, Monday, November 26, 2007

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week that passing energy and climate change legislation is a “moral issue”
CNS News, Monday, June 21, 2010

It seems Huckabee is Pelosi’s kind of “Christian.”

Who are YOU to judge? The more you hammer him the more suspicious I am of you. What's the old saying? "If you get a lot of flack it means you're over the target." This rant of yours seems to border on obsession and that makes me suspicious. It's a long way to 2012. Leave it alone for now. Let's concentrate on the mid terms and taking back the Congress. I'll tell you, I didn't like that shot about Huck being Pelosi's kind of "Christian." THAT kind of shot makes you seem a little "smokey" to me and if it smells like smoke it usually comes from the pit of Hell. Satan can quote the Bible backwards and forwards and he loves to twist things around so Christians turn on each other. You sound just like that. Go away.

I don’t care if you like the facts I’ve posted or not. When a politician claims it is our Christian obligation to aid criminals to continue committing their crimes and says it is our Christian duty to destroy jobs and the economy through cap and tax I’m going to call it what it is, heresy.

The press is pushing two liberals into the frontrunner position for the Republican nomination just like they did in ’08. We waited too long to speak out then and ended up with a liberal nut case as our nominee. We can’t afford to do that again. We have to expose Huckabee and Romney for what they are before the media gets them so far ahead that a conservative stands little chance of catching up.

It isn’t a choice between weeding out the unacceptable candidates for the nomination and working to take back congress this year. We have to do both at the same time.

If you don’t like what I’ve posted nominate Huckabee and watch what the media brings out. I’ve only scratched the surface here. I have plenty more and I don’t have a staff to do opposition research. Just think what the Democrats and their media shills will do to him.

So you can be upset. You can even work to nominate Huckabee if you wish. Just be advised that I’m going to bust my butt to let people know the truth about him and his record.

You have a nice day.
