Good ole' Huckabee! Can pretty well count on him to be a squish when it comes to illegal aliens.

I listened to a few minutes of Huck’s radio show the other day. Predictably, he soon wound up praising Marco Rubio for his work on the amnesty treason bill.

Spit!

Huckabee be a hanger on. He got not choices but take a check for whatever he does on the FNC on Saturday night.

When Ailes called him into the office to talk policy along with Tokyo Rove, they say "Mike how do you like your job?"

Mike say "I love my job."

They say "How you like Amnesty and Open Borders?" and Mike say "I like those things just as much as my bosses like those things."

They say "Atta boy Mike, go tell the world and the Wash Po how much you love the NWO."

Yes, Huckabee has a soft spot for illegals and criminals, even if they are one and the same! But AR has finally found someone good, a young congressman with the unlikely name of “Cotton”.

Let us not conflate the ‘SOCIAL gospel” with our current reality.

We are attempting to retain a Constitutional remnant of what the Founding Fathers envisioned.

The “poor” will always be around. That is the burden of the Church, not the government

Huckabee’s status as a quisling has been established for a very long time. This just reinforces what we already knew.

Somebody needs to tell the Huckster about how much damage 33.1 million new DemocRAT voters are going to do to America.
Obviously, he can’t figure it out for himself.

If he disagreed with ANYONE, repub or dimocrap that would be mean and he doesn’t want to be mean, like all those really bad right wingers.

Isn’t his radio show motto “ Less confrontation and more conversation”? that means he will just agree with everyone and prove what a piece of rino crap he really is.

People should never forget what a tool Huckabee is.

In this respect, he's in good company.

O'Reilly, Hannity, and the rest of the Fox News Channel crew have already sold out.

Follow the leader.

Huckaby. Isn’t he one of the losers that couldn’t distinguish himself from that uber loser McCain during the 2008 presidential primary? Now that he has taken a staunch anti conservative position, he should be the favorite of the GOPE for the 2016 primary.

He who stands for nothing, will fall for anything. People like Huck watch their country imploding all around them, and still don't see that it's time to stand up and fight.

Huckabee Defends DREAM Act Students As Coulter Compares Legalization To Subsidizing ‘Illegitimacy’ By Andrea Nill Sanchez

on Oct 12, 2010 at 1:05 pm Last night, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter pressed ex-presidential candidate and former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AK) on his belief that undocumented children who were brought to the U.S. by their parents should not be punished for the illegal act committed by their parents. In response, Coulter called Huckabee a “liberal Christian” — an apparently offensive accusation that he vehemently denied. However, Huckabee did firmly stand by his immigration stance: HUCKABEE: My primary thing with illegals is you don’t punish the children of an illegal because the parents did something when the kid was three or four years-old. COULTER: This exactly what I mean — this is a liberal Christian. I’m sure that is what liberals said to us 30 years ago in saying that we have to start subsidizing illegitimacy. ‘Oh this poor woman, she had a child out of wedlock, why would we want to punish the child?’ And then what happens? We’re subsidizing illegitimacy. [...] If you subsidize illegal immigration it’ll go through the roof. So your Christian heart says don’t punish the child, but economically that means we’re going to get a lot more of them. HUCKABEE: Economically, you’re wrong. My economic heart tells me that if you have a kid who is a valedictorian — like a kid in my state was — and his parents are illegal, and he’s the valedictorian — wouldn’t it be better for him to go to college, become a medical doctor, and pay taxes and become a citizen as part of that? Or would it be better to have him pick tomatoes and never really be a productive citizen? The economy will be better when that kid is able to fully realize his potential and break the pattern of his parent’s illegal activity.

SRIKE ONE....STRIKE TWO ....STRIKE THREE ....

GOOBERNER HUCK: YER OUWTT...!

Fact #1. As Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee denounced an immigration bill (Arkansas Senate Bill 206) that "would have required proof of citizenship to register to vote and would have required state agencies to report suspected cases of people living in the country illegally." (Doug Thompson, "Immigration Bill un-christian..governor says"Arkansas News Bureau 1/28/05)

Fact #2. As Governor, Mike Huckabee offered a proposal to give state funded scholarships and state benefits to illegal aliens. (Laura Kellams, "Huckabee Plan would give aid to illegal aliens" Arkansas Democrat Gazette 1/12/2005)

Fact #3. Governor Huckabee supported a Bush-backed immigration plan that provides a path to citizenship for some illegal aliens.

'Yes, Huckabee has a soft spot for illegals and criminals, even if they are one and the same!'

YES and i think HUCK is indeed an ordained Baptist Minister....which isn't in itself a bad thing ...but when they start to preach AMNESTY ..well..AS USUAL ANN COULTER STRAIGHTENS US ALL OUT ON THAT SCORE. READ HER GREAT COLUMN ON THE SUBJECT..

http://www.humanevents.com/2013/05/08/coulter-beware-of-liberals-who-come-in-evangelicals-clothing/

By: Ann Coulter 5/8/2013 06:35 PM Every few months since at least 2006, The New York Times takes time out from brow-beating Evangelicals to praise them for supporting amnesty for illegal aliens.Most of the “Evangelicals” the Times cites are liberal frauds, far from “unlikely allies” in amnesty, as alleged. It is a specialty of the left to pose as something they’re not in order to create the impression of a zeitgeist. The only one I haven’t seen quoted yet is the ACLU’s minister, Barry Lynn. The Times keeps touting Evangelicals for Amnesty as evidence of a “shift,” a “change of heart” and a “secret weapon.” Breaking the same news story every two months since 2006 isn’t a shift; it’s propaganda. Any Evangelical promoting the McCain-Rubio amnesty plan has the moral framework of Planned Parenthood. Like the abortion lobby, they have boundless compassion for the people they can see, but none for those they can’t see. One Evangelical after another told the Times that they no longer believe Americans should have control over who immigrates here on the basis of having met illegal aliens in their pews. The millions harmed by illegal immigration are left out of the equation. They don’t go to church here. Similarly, the pro-choice crowd is brimming with compassion for girls who have gotten pregnant by accident. They’re in high school, their whole lives are ahead of them, it’s one mistake! The babies don’t count because they’re out of sight. The Rev. David Uth, head pastor of First Baptist Orlando, said that based on “the stories out there in the pews” from illegals who “have made friends and who have become close with people here,” there was momentum in his church to “do something to address their needs.” Mr. Uth and his parishioners will never hear stories from the thousands of Americans killed every year by illegal aliens. They won’t be sitting in the pews with those murdered and maimed in Boston last month by a conspiracy of immigrants. They won’t hear from hospitals and school systems in border states forced into bankruptcy because they have to provide free services to illegals. They won’t hear from farmers and ranchers whose livestock and property are stolen or destroyed by illegal aliens. Jay Crenshaw, a parishioner at First Baptist Orlando, told the Times that he was a conservative Christian, but his views had changed “as a result of personal encounters with immigrants in church.” After a fellow parishioner was arrested for driving illegally, “Mr. Crenshaw said he realized that his friend, an active church member who was supporting his mother and a brother” — by the way, so are you, readers! — “could be deported.” (You know who else’s views changed as a result of a personal encounter with an illegal alien? The 31-year-old mother allegedly shot to death by illegal immigrant Jose Zarate in Arizona earlier this year because she wouldn’t allow the 25-year-old to date her 13-year-old daughter.) Noting that he had “a lot of compassion,” Crenshaw explained that once you have “walked with someone and put a face and family behind the immigration issue, it very much personalizes it.” Unfortunately for educated Europeans desperate to escape their collapsing socialist societies being overridden with Muslims, Mr. Crenshaw has not met them and therefore cannot “personalize” their troubles. They’re barred from coming here, and he’s fine with that. This new Christian ethic of compassion-by-personal-encounter is also bad news for the millions of American blue-collar workers unable to find work because of the massive influx of unskilled immigrants. And there will be no compassion for the tens of millions of Americans who will never see a dime of their promised Social Security payments, even as their taxes go through the roof, because Mr. Crenshaw’s compassion requires that this country turn itself into the welfare ward of the world. This is the same moral courage that allows some of these ministers to rain fire and brimstone on gays, while never getting around to criticizing divorce. They don’t know any gays — but they have lots of divorcees in their pews. Principles do not vary depending on personal circumstances. But these so-called Evangelicals wouldn’t know a principle unless it sat next to them in the pew. Another Christian interviewed by the Times, Stewart Hall, also restricts his Christian compassion to those he can see. “It occurs to me,” Hall said of the illegal immigrants in his church, “that if Jesus was sitting next to me, he would not care whether they were illegal or legal.” Would Jesus care if they were gay? Would he care if they’d had abortions? Because if that’s the test for public policy, it’s abortion-on-demand and gay marriage all around! Moreover, it’s not clear that Jesus wouldn’t care how people came to this country. Did they come here in disobedience of the laws of God and of man? Was their first act on American soil to defy the law of the nation? And why can’t Jesus love them if they’re back in Mexico? Does the Bible say that Christ died only for U.S. legal residents? Maybe that passage is buried in the Book of Malachi. (I never read that one carefully!) Adopting a classic liberal trait, these Christians incapable of abstract thinking seem to believe that true compassion consists of giving away something that isn’t theirs. They repeatedly cite the biblical passage about treating the stranger as you would yourself. But I note that they don’t invite strangers to move into their houses, sleep in their beds, eat their food and have sex with their wives. No, they demand that we transform our country into a bankrupt, Third World hellhole so that they can feel good about themselves. But every American has an interest in what kind of country this is. America isn’t theirs to give away out of phony “Christian” compassion.
