    Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee gave his thoughts on the 2012 Republican presidential candidates Sunday in an interview with WABC’s Aaron Klein. As the candidates continue to trade rankings in the national polls, Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses in his own election bid in 2008, spoke of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s chances of winning the primary. The former Republican presidential candidate urged conservative Republicans to support Romney because he believes the former Massachusetts Gov. has the best chance of defeating Barack Obama in 2012. “Mitt Romney may not be their first choice, but Mitt Romney every day of...

    Last week, I gave advice to Mitt Romney, Mitch Daniels, Haley Barbour, and Tim Pawlenty on how they could win the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. In this week’s column, I offer advice to Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and Herman Cain on how they can emerge from this cycle as winners even if they do not get the nomination. 1. Mike Huckabee: Convince Establishment He Can Take Down Palin Huckabee leads the GOP field in many early polls. Some of these polls have also shown him defeating Obama in a one-on-one matchup. Granted, these polls...

    Tim Pawlenty said all the right things during the inaugural “Presidential Lecture Series” event sponsored by The FAMiLY Leader. A crowd of 150 attendees, plus a dozen media members, gathered at Pella Christian High School early Monday afternoon to listen to the former Minnesota governor. The crowd liked what they heard, but was not blown away by Pawlenty’s delivery. If elections were won only on substance, Pawlenty would stand a strong chance in the 2012 Iowa Caucus. However, style matters too. Oratorical skills propelled Barack Obama to the White House in 2008. Pawlenty will need to become a more passionate...

  • Red Eye to Huckabee: Are you calling Palin an Extremist? (positioning himself as a moderate?)

    Video: Mike Huckabee implies that Palin is an "extremist," due to her opposition to the tax bill compromise. Huckabee stated earlier that "What we got here is a (tax) bill that the extremes of both sides hate" When questioned later on whether Sarah Palin was an extremist since she opposed the bill, Huckabee said that Sarah wasn't an 'extremist' per say just occupying an extreme position. He then compares her "extreme position" on the right to that of Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D-NY) extremism on the left. Huck: ".....You've got the far left, and the far right...Anthony Weiner, for example, thinks...
  • Huckabee helps Obama promote "Healthy Hunger-Free Kids" Act.

    -Mike Huckabee, Governor of Arkansas 1996-2007 “The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act makes significant progress toward ending child hunger and obesity by expanding access to federal child nutrition programs and improving the nutritional value they provide. In addition to reauthorizing federal child nutrition programs, the act will help address childhood obesity by reducing the fat and calorie content of school meals. Reversing the childhood obesity epidemic in a single generation – as First Lady Michelle Obama has called upon our nation to do – won’t be easy. It will require a long-term, sustained commitment to attacking this issue across multiple fronts....

    Ann Coulter has a taxonomy problem. For her, pretty much anyone to the left of Rush Limbaugh is a liberal. And if they're a liberal, they can't be Christian. So what does that make Mike Huckabee, who's an ordained Southern Baptist minister and slightly to the left of Limbaugh? We found out last night when Coulter appeared on Huckabee's show: (video at link)

    “I'm a conservative, but I'm not mad at everybody over it.” Mike Huckabee I'm writing this to say just one thing: I like Mike. That would be Michael Dale Huckabee, former Baptist preacher, former governor of Arkansas, former GOP presidential candidate, current Fox News personality, the guy quoted above being flagrantly reasonable during an interview on “The Daily Show.” I like Mike. The proximate reason I say that is his recent refusal to support a knuckleheaded idea being touted by many of his conservative brethren: altering the 14th Amendment to curtail illegal immigration. But I could have said it a...

    Any political ambitions of former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee could be hurt by his role in freeing Maurice Clemmons, the gunman suspected in the execution murders of four police officers in Washington State -- especially since Clemmons would not be the first criminal Huckabee helped to free who later committed murder. Clemmons was serving 95 years when Huckabee, then governor of Arkansas, commuted his sentence in 2000. Clemmons is now being sought in the murders of four Lakewood, Wash. police officers, who were ambushed and shot in a coffee shop Sunday morning. Four years earlier, Huckabee also pushed for...

    LAREDO, Texas (CNN) – Saturday morning, Mike Huckabee took a trip to the border he talks about securing at every campaign stop... [snip] Huckabee, a strong proponent of building a fence along the Southern border, told reporters that it was not about keeping people out, but keeping bad people out. He gave examples of drug and human traffickers as well as terrorists. “I don’t resent that people want to come here. I’ve always said I thank God every day I’m in a country people are trying to break into, not in a country they’re trying to break out of,” said...
