Skip to comments.Huckabee: Palin E-mails Revealed A “Perfectly-Competent Chief Executive”
Posted on 06/14/2011 5:08:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Arkansas Governor and former Presidential contender Mike Huckabee sent an email to supporters of his HuckPAC blasting the left and the media for their overeagerness in digging through the thousands of emails from Sarah Palins Governorship released recently. Huckabee practically praises them for their ability to distinguish Palin as above the clamor as she could be while fighting off attacks about her family.
Using an excerpt from The Huckabee Report included in the emails, Huckabee says;
"You almost have to feel sorry for all the reporters and leftwing bloggers who spent the weekend slogging through 24,000 pages of Sarah Palins old emails from her years as Alaska governor. They thought they were going on the ultimate Alaskan safari, hunting for anything remotely scandalous or uninformed or even ungrammatical that they could attack Gov. Palin with. But to their shock and grief, their partisan animosity backfiired. So far, aside from some justifiable anger about unfair attacks on her family, theyve found nothing but thousands and thousands of dry government emails, to and from a perfectly-competent chief executive. You know, I used to be a governor. I know how deadly dull those emails must be to anyone who wasnt involved in the business they concerned. Thats why I almost feel sorry for the people who volunteered to read them. Or I would, if it didnt serve em right for trying so hard to play gotcha.
"Oh, they did discover some emails that were ridiculous, loopy and downright insane. Problem is, those came from their own side. Some people were actually so discombobulated by Gov. Palins nomination as Vice President, they emailed her rants that included death threats. I hope those were investigated with even half the fervor that was put into examining Sarah Palins spelling."
Huckabee seems to me to be a fine human being. As with Palin, there are some folks that he couldn't please no matter what he said, even if he said good things about Jesus Christ Himself.
You might not have noticed, but he's saying positive things about Palin.
I guess that probably makes you a Romney supporter.
Bachman is in this race to blunt any effort by Sarah Palin. I suspect she’s got back channels to someone who doesn’t want Palin in the race.
I wonder if any of these candidates is going to be honest enough to say that if Obamacare is not found to be unconstitutional and if CONGRESS does not repeal it, that their sworn duty as President, if elected, will be to ENFORCE it?
Presidents can't repeal laws. They are, however, bound by their oaths to enforce them.
“Id vote for a Palin / Huckabee ticket in a second..........This might be a very good thing.”
I agree with you, but I don’t think Huckabee is interested in running. When he dropped out...he did it for real, and not to jocky for a VP slot.
Sarah is looking better to me everyday. Also, I’m starting to see a real intelligence/cleverness in her that the press is to foolish or biased to see. She may well be America’s first female POTUS. She will never be a “Ronald Reagan” (but Ronald Reagan wasn’t the “Ronald Reagan” that time and fading memories have made him - he was a great POTUS though). After having Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama as presidents....I’m willing to take a chance on a Sarah Palin. I just hope she doesn’t surround herself with fossils for key advisors as President Bush did.
Don’t know, haven’t gotten to listen closely to Mark the last few days. I sure hope he is on to her. Last I noticed, he was still praising Sarah, MB, Cain, and Santorum.
“You might not have noticed, but he’s saying positive things about Palin......I guess that probably makes you a Romney supporter.”
No, there are just some folks that hate Huckabee. Personally I think most are libertarians or just anti Southerners or anti Southern Baptist. IMO.
Whatever, I’m glad Mike got out because I got sick of all the trash folks talk about him. I give a little pass to those that didn’t like the pardons that went sour, but I think they carry that grudge a little too far.
Thanks for the info, all in a 6 year period, and some time ago. How long will she milk this for?
Not a fan of Frank Luntz, he has an agenda, he always has more dems in his focus groups. I personally believe that he knew he had a MB friendly group going in to this session, and in fact that was his plan.
MB implies that the former Alaska governor should hold off on any kind of White House campaign while she still had children in the house.
In a video from last weeks Faith and Freedom Conference, Bachmann tells conservative Christian activist Ralph Reed, Weve raised a lot of children, five biological children, 23 foster kids, Bachmann says. This fall our youngest two will go off to college, so were coming to the conclusion now of 29 years of parenting, and I think thats one life lesson that you learn. That sometimes you have patience and wait to do certain things in your life.
She was also talking to Ralph Reed and here is the video:
Thank You :)
Kinda like Obama is ignoring the Defense of Marriage act?
They can minimally enforce rather than maximally enforce, and they can initiate the changing of the law.
Does “minimally enforce” equate with “faithfully execute”?
I think the best argument a president could use for something like Obama Care is that the 2200 page bill is just too complicated to understand and therefore he cannot under any circumstances “faithfully execute” the law. He could then direct the executive branch to suspend all operations under the bill, call a special session of congress and tell them they cannot adjourn until they either fix the bill so that it is able to be understood and faithfully enforced or they send him a bill repealing it.
This would be a legitimate exercise of executive power, and quite frankly it is one that should have been used thousands of times by every president since Washington.
The reference refers to his tossing the last round to Obama by annoiting McCain. I’m sure he’s a fine person; I question his tactics.
Excellent idea. Makes sense to me and fits with minimally execute...which is to find some way around the bill.
It's that "anyone but Sarah". I read a thread about chrissy matthews praising Michele.
That is the BIGGEST indication of whom the DEMONcrats will cross political lines and vote for Michele.......whom CANNOT beat barry.
Sarah is the ONLY one, in my HO, who can wipe the floor w/ barry. The fact the lamestream media is "upping" Michele means to me, she cannot beat barry.
