Huckabee Discusses the Sanford Situation

With Governor Mark Sanford’s personal life going down in flames, one wonders if he will eventually step down from his office of Governor of South Carolina or be asked to resign due to his negligence of his duties.  The Lieutenant Governor, Andre Bauer, was on Huckabee discussing the situation.

Governor Huckabee has been nothing but fair and kind towards the Sanford situation but yet he seems to be the one with so much to gain from it happening.

Huckabee Addresses Cap and Trade

Governor Huckabee also recently gave a zinger to the GOP establishment for their endorsement of Charlie Crist (FL) for U.S. Senate over the true conservative candidate, Marco Rubio, who Huckabee just endorsed.  Good for him.

Governor Huckabee Endorses Marco Rubio for US Senate

Huckabee has just announced his endorsement of principled conservative Marco Rubio of Florida for US Senate.  The Republican establishment has already backed Mr. Rubio’s primary challenger, Governor Charlie Crist (RINO), and it is time to show the GOP that we stand for principles first and party second.  Here is what Huckabee said in a recent Huck PAC newsletter.

We knew when we started Huck PAC that our task would not be easy. Huck PAC isn’t going to find much support fr om the so-called “establishment” because more often than not the candidates we support will likely be the underdogs. That’s okay with me and I hope you feel the same way. If standing on principles means supporting the underdog, then count me in.

Thank you Governor Huckabee for bucking the establishment who does not listen to “we the people.”

Huckabee Tops Another Poll and Appears on The Daily Show

Last week Governor Mike Huckabee outperformed other top Republicans (for the third month in a row) in a poll placing them against Barack Obama.  Public Policy Polling conducted the poll and gave some thoughts on how this group of Republicans are not doing well against President Obama and that maybe the GOP needs a new face.  What this poll neglects to say, however, is that last month Obama led Huckabee by thirteen points and this month the lead was cut to seven points.  That’s a big swing in a one month period and we are just starting to see the President’s approval rating swing to the negatives.  Could the love affair with Obama be coming to an end?

Another noteworthy thing that Huckabee was in the news for last week was his appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  During this segment the Governor stands firm on the importance of the sanctity of life.  Who else would enter into liberal territory with so much confidence on this issue?

The Case for Social Conservative Issues

The National Review recently came out with an article that rebuked the Republican Party for their treatment of social conservatives and made the case for why their issues need to be the focus in the coming elections.

I wonder if this means they will throw Mitt Romney under the bus next time around?

From ex-governors Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney to congressional leaders John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, most national GOP leaders seem more convinced than ever that social issues should remain on the back burner as the party seeks to rebuild for the future.

That calculus, however, may be a big mistake.

What this means for the elections of 2010 and 2012 should be clear. The present crop of GOP leaders will need to do what they have never done and move social issues front and center. The challenge involves more than simply resisting elite efforts to deconstruct matrimony and keep the abortion industry alive and kicking. It means fully recognizing the interplay between the economic and social conservatism that the party claims to represent, and holding up what Goldman terms “impoverished demography” as the key domestic concern of the 21st century.

Iowa’s Bob Vander Plaats is Mike Huckabee and Chuck Norris Approved

Last week Governor Mike Huckabee was in Iowa to formally endorse his 2008 state campaign chair, Bob Vander Plaats, for Iowa Governor.  The event turned out a large number of supporters and gave a huge financial boost to the Vander Plaats Campaign.  I am one of the Iowa Team Huck State Coordinators and I volunteered my time to help with this amazing event.

During his speech Huckabee stressed Vander Plaats’ deep convictions on conservative  issues that will not be affected according to which way the wind blows.  He said that Vander Plaats is not a “convenient conservative” but a conservative who lives and breaths those priciples in his everyday life and will advance them as Governor.  This is especially important in the state of Iowa where activist judges unconstitutionally legalized same-sex marriage.  Huckabee made a point to say that Vander Plaats understands the constitution and the separation of powers and will be a Governor who leads in all issues facing Iowans.  Vander Plaats is a former school principal and businessman.  Huckabee also pointed out that Vander Plaats knows how to sign the front of a check and not just the back of one.

Critics have been quick to wonder why Governor Huckabee has stuck his neck out in a primary which may lead to opposition from his party if he runs for president in 2012, but he was quick to point out that wondering what is in it for yourself is what is wrong with politics today.

First of all, if people begrudge me because I am loyal to a friend, then they need to begrudge me — because to me there are things that are more important than political consequences.

Because he believed in what I stood for, and I believe in what he stands for. I don’t think it hurts to stand with a guy like Bob Vander Plaats. But if it does, then let it hurt.

Mike Huckabee is not the only one on the national scene to throw his support behind Bob Vander Plaats for Iowa Governor.  Chuck Norris also came out with an endorsement of him in his Human Events article.

Huckabee: Don’t Apologize for America, Thank God for It

This past weekend on Governor Huckabee’s Fox News show he gave a stunning opening monologue in which he responded to President Obama’s speech in Cairo.  It was respectful but yet very powerful in opposition to what the President said.

This was the week of President Obama’s excellent adventure to the Middle East and his long and long-awaited speech on Islam delivered in Cairo.

In the spirit of being “fair and balanced,” there were some commendable things in the speech, such as the bold appeal to Muslim leaders to open up education and personal opportunities to women.

But there were some stunning attitudes and policies revealed……

A Tale of Two Shootings

Over the weekend it came to my attention that there may now be a federal investigation of Dr. Tiller’s murder by the Department of Justice because they believe that Scott Roeder, the killer, may not have acted alone.  Seriously, one crazy guy gets in his car and drives to Tiller’s church to finish him off and then leaves again doesn’t really sound like a conspiracy.  It sounds like just another day in America when someone goes off his rocker.

I guess if the Department of Justice wants to find others involved in the Tiller murder they would have to investigate the entire pro-life movement.  According to abortion advocates it is the pro-life community who is to blame for Roder’s actions.  When pro-lifers call abortion “murder” and show pictures of dismembered babies they are causing their advocates to go off the deep end and use violence.  Since when is the truth a crime?  Maybe if pro-lifers weren’t so peaceful the Department of Justice might not have time on their hands to look at this one case so thoroughly.

The biggest question here is why is shooting of  Tiller more of a threat than the shooting at a military recruitment center in Little Rock, Arkansas?  A Muslim convert gunned down one one soldier and wounded another because he wanted to kill as many as he could.  Have we not learned from the past that these people do not act alone?  Where else in our nation are military personnel in danger?  It seems to me that the people indoctrinated to hate Americans and to kill as many of us as they can are a lot more dangerous than one man taking it upon himself to exercise “an eye for an eye.”

It’s not the Justice department alone who is glossing over the shootings of the soldiers and highlighting Tiller’s murder.  The media did this as well along with our own President:

President Obama statement THREE DAYS after the soldiers’ shooting:

I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long’s family as they mourn the loss of their son.

President Obama’s statement ON THE DAY OF Dr. Tiller’s murder:

I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.
