    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who has been supportive of Donald Trump, says Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has earned his “Lyin’ Ted” moniker by refusing to endorse Trump despite his previous pledge to support the Republican nominee. Huckabee made the comments on Facebook after Cruz’s speech here at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night where he was booed by some of the delegates for not explicitly offering support to Trump. Wrote Huckabee: “The question of the night was whether Ted Cruz would honor his word and support the nominee or earn the moniker ‘Lyin’ Ted’ given to him by...

    Supporters of Mike Huckabee are launching a TV attack ad here in the final days of the race that casts Ted Cruz as a charlatan feigning intense Christian devotion to win votes. The ad, which is being aired by the pro-Huckabee super PAC Pursuing America’s Greatness and was previewed for BuzzFeed News, depicts two women chatting prior to a group Bible study about the upcoming Iowa caucuses. The women are shown discussing recent leaked comments in which Cruz privately told donors he wouldn’t prioritize fighting same-sex marriage if he was elected; they also talk about Cruz’s reportedly meager record of...

They wrote Rick Santorum off four years ago. I'm still counting that we're going to have a big surprise for people on February first." "This is not a surrender. This is an all out declaration," Huckabee charged, adding that he wouldn't be working this hard if he didn't think he can win. "There is no short cut here," he continued, explaining that candidates can send out mailers and buy up...

    Among the Republican presidential candidates, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz have stood out as the two most ardent defenders of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was recently jailed after refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses in her jurisdiction. The two conservatives made a point to travel down to the Carter County Detention Center on Tuesday to join protesters in support of Davis, but the plans changed slightly when a judge ordered her immediate release. And then comes the following doozy from the New York Times write-up of this afternoon’s Kim Davis Release Extravaganza (emphasis ours): "The rally Tuesday had been...

    For years, Republican candidates have been assured by their political consultants that amnesty is a runaway hit with the public. Then they always come in for a zinger of a surprise when the American people are finally able to express themselves on the subject. (Sometimes it seems as if political consultants are in the game only to make money.) Washington has tried to sneak through three amnesties in the last decade -- in 2006, 2007 and 2013. Each time, amnesty had the full support of the media, the White House, leaders of both political parties, big campaign donors and lobbyists....

    Mike Huckabee is not the evangelical candidate. Oh sure, he’ll get a hefty amount of the evangelical vote even though there is a much more competitive field this time around. But if you think he’s a one-trick pony then you miss the larger story. The easy media narrative will be that Huckabee must appeal to evangelicals to do well. And there’s no denying that will be a part of his potential winning equation. But what Huckabee has that no other candidate possesses is an, “aw shucks,” bless your heart, southern charm. That will play well in the heartland of this...

Those programs are the basis for a permanent welfare state,” Deace said Wednesday on the “Steve Deace Show,” according to audio provided by the liberal-leaning Media Matters.“We can’t afford this, we are currently $18 trillion in debt.

    As governor of Arkansas, Huckabee responded to a fiscal crisis by working with Democrats in the Arkansas legislature to raise taxes and eliminate the deficit. Then, in his first presidential campaign in 2008, Huckabee converted himself into a starve-the-beast Republican, signing a pledge not to raise taxes and proposing to replace the income tax with a national sales tax, which would likely amount to a large tax cut for the wealthy.On this record, it isn't clear whether Huckabee truly is a fiscal conservative who was simply pandering to the Republican base when he promised not to raise taxes in his...

Currency wars have already started he said, citing the recent decision by the Swiss National Bank to peg the Swiss franc to the euro.

  • Huckabee is in.

    This link is up. Huckabee is asking everyone to pray for him as he decides about running for President. This is purely political to fire up his christian right base. He has already decided to run , one does not really pray in public with a website if they have not already decided.
  • Glenn Beck tells 'thin-skinned' Mike Huckabee not to run (a very serious feud)

    Conservative radio host and Fox News personality Glenn Beck fired back at Mike Huckabee on Friday, saying the former Arkansas governor was "co-opting" liberal talking points and should consider staying out the race if he's so "thin-skinned." There are "really tough issues that real conservatives will have with Mike Huckabee," Beck said on his radio show of the politician, who's weighing another run for president in 2012. "If, sir, you are this thin-skinned about your politics, it might be best for you to stay on the sidelines" and not run, he added. It's the latest salvo in a week-long back-and-forth...

    Just caught Beck on the car radio. A quick summary. After Huckabee emailed Beck about Beck calling him a "progressive" on air, Huckabee also followed it up with a piece on his site ridiculing Beck and his "bugga bear" conspiracy theories. Beck played it on the air this morning. After playing Huckabee's comments, Beck detailed how Huckabee (a Christian and someone who he has met, interviewed and knows many people who are friends of Mike Huckabee -- and that his comments are in response to Huckabee's big government politics) isn't a conservative and is someone who raised taxes when he...

    Mike Huckabee has issued a sharp response to Glenn Beck’s derisive comments about the former Arkansas governor, saying the “inept” talk show host’s remarks “blow up in his face.” On Wednesday, Beck slapped the dreaded “progressive” label on the potential presidential candidate, saying Huckabee “is the perfect progressive candidate for the Republican Party.” Beck has equated progressivism with cancer that must be excised from America, and has sometimes derided progressives as “Nazis.” Huckabee responded on the website of his political action committee, “This week Glenn Beck has taken to his radio show to attack me as a Progressive, which...

    I’d never heard a Minnesotan say “ain’t” before last Monday. I grew up in North Carolina. Ain’t is part of the vernacular there. In Iowa and Minnesota, not so much. If you ain’t from there, you ain’t allowed to use it… How bad was T-Paw’s faux pas Monday, calling Steve Scheffler “Chuck” three different times in a 10 minute speech? On the bright side, Scheffler has been called much worse than “Chuck” lately. On the other hand, if you’re trying to win the Iowa Caucus, STEVE Scheffler is a name you should know… By the way, they don’t say “faux...

    The Christian Post ^ | 02/25/2011 | Nathan Black
    Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee came out in defense of President Barack Obama and his professed Christian faith on Thursday. During a press briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Huckabee criticized the debates over Obama's religion and birthplace as "useless" and "unnecessary." "I know for some people that is an obsession but it's not with me," said the Southern Baptist. With rare public appearances at churches on Sundays and a smaller percentage of Americans (34 percent, according to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life) who believe the president is a Christian, debate continues to loom...
  • Do Birthers Know That Mike Huckabee Is Not a Birther?

    New York Magazine ^ | February 15, 2011 | Dan Amira
    According to a new poll, 51 percent of Republicans who intend to vote in their party's primaries do not believe that President Obama was born in the United States. Among these birthers, Mike Huckabee is the preferred candidate with 24 percent of the vote, followed by Sarah Palin at 19 percent, "someone else" at 15 percent, Newt Gingrich at 14 percent, and Mitt Romney at 11 percent. Unfortunately for the birthers, though, Huckabee, the winner of the birther primary, has made it clear that he doesn't subscribe to such conspiracy theories. As he said on Geraldo at Large on July...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 02/06/2011 | Scott Rasmussen
    An early look at potential 2012 match-ups indicates that the election is likely shaping up as a referendum on President Obama. That’s typical when an incumbent runs for reelection. The numbers show that Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee essentially run even with Obama at this point. Romney is nominally up two points, 44% to 42%, while Huckabee is tied with the president at 43% apiece. Three other well-known potential candidates, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul trail the president. Palin is down by 11 points, 49% to 38%, Gingrich by eight, 47% to 39%, and Paul by nine, 44%...
