Huckabee with Michelle Obama

Governor Mike Huckabee is a real gentleman – too bad he is also a wacky fundamentalist Christian and works with the yellow journalists at FOX News.  His interview with the First Lady was enduring.  It seems Huckabee understands that Michell Obama is the First Lady – she is not the President.  Huckabee correctly follows a […]

Obama – Focal Point of Mature Stability

This election was tough.  Hard hitting, loud, boisterous, negative, slanderous, and sometimes mean spirited.  All of us have enjoyed and distressed over the emotional roller coaster.  This was better than any Hitchcock thriller – if tense excitement is what you like.  But the election is over and we are seeing the emotional aftermath.  We can […]

Huckabee’s Choice Words for Romney

By Michael Luo Ah, memories. Among The Caucus’s favorites from campaign days gone by were those from the bitterly cold days of December 2007 preceding the Iowa caucuses, when the silver-tongued Mike Huckabee and his indefatigable sparring partner, Mitt Romney, circled and slashed at each other from dawn until dusk. The episodes are now in […]

Politicians dancing with Olberman

Live video entertainment is infecting the ranks of politicians. What are they to do? President Bush seems to enjoy a little frivolity – that may be an understatement. Barack Obama risks the rhythm of race. Hillary is careful singing – and she should be. The ability to speak eloquently is a given in today’s media […]

Lewis Black defends Huckabee

Son Leave Mike Huckabee alone!  Lewis Black is an outrageous comedian who does this superb spoof of Huckabee’s campaign supporters.  Not exactly in the mold of Chuck NOrris – but entertaining never the less.  Black’s ‘Root of All Evil’ series premieres March 12th on Comedy Central. Dad

Mike Huckabee on SNL

Son, I don’t know what Mike Huckabee is trying to accomplish.  He has certainly become a national figure – but….  What I one say – he has a good sense of humor, if not a good sense of politics… I watched this clip with mixed feelings.  This is a former Governor, a good man with […]

Vacuum the votes – but not in a Vacuum

Son, We are having fun trying to understand the candidates in this 2008 election process. Obama is young and vibrant, Clinton has the bet grasp of issues, McCain is a moderate Republican, Huckabee wants to replace the constitution.  In the nominating process we like to look at the political Parties.  Who is conservative enough, liberal […]

Huckabee Prepares for 2012

Son, What is Huckabee doing? Does he believe that he can win the nomination from John McCain? Probably not. Is he trying to build strength so he can influence the Party Platform at the Republican Convention? Perhaps. But he is a young man and I believe he is looking to the future – to 2012. […]

A Look At Huckabee’s Cabinet

Dad, I was pondering what Mike Huckabee might do if he were to win the Presidency. I mean after the shocked look wears off. One thing I know he will do is to select a cabinet, and there are some folks that would be prime candidates for his theocracy. Here is how I see his […]

Huckabee’s Hope for Future

Son, Mitt Romney has ‘suspended’ his quest for the Presidency. He is showing his business acumen. Large amounts of money have been invested in a marketing campaign that failed to sell the Bosco. Romney knows that he would be throwing good money after bad. So what does this do to the Republican nomination process? These […]

Huckabee Speaks on Super Tuesday

Son, Mike Huckabee is talking on television.  I’ll try to capture the essence. “A lot of folks are trying to say this is a two man race.  It is, and we are in it!” “Thanks to Arkansas where we have a wonderful victory here at home.  Thanks to the incredible people who believed in us… […]

Huckabee uspsets the apple cart

Son, The conservative talk radio jabber has been all about how McCain is not conservative enough.   Vote for Romney they said.  Wee – their strategy is only half working.  The conservative voters are supporting Huckabee. If the trends continue we will have a three man race in the Republican Party.  I am happy for […]

McCain Supporters torpedo Romney in W. VA.

Son, The West Virginia Republican primary came to an interesting head today. Mitt Romney got the most votes – but not 50%. Huckabee was second and McCain a distant third. The McCain supporters joined ranks with the Huckabee folks and they managed a 52% victory – denying Romney a victory. This is in-your-face politics. Dad

Republican Debate, 1-29-08

Son, The Republican debate is on CNN tonight. It is being hosted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. John McCain, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Mike Huckabee are participating. I missed a few minutes because of a black tie affair that I could not get out of. The question is what about 100 year involvement […]

Boring Republicans run a 1994 Campaign

Son, Much of the media attention is given to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Why is that? Fox news would say it is because the media is too liberal. If the Republicans would ever say anything new perhaps they would be in the news. My notion is that the Republicans are so darn boring. Listen […]

Racism, just another campaign challenge

Son, The media is in a big toot about Racism.  Bill Clinton dismissed Obama’s victory in South Carolina by stating that Jesse Jackson won there in 1984 and 1988.  The implication was that Barack Obama is just another black man.  The media interprets this as an attempt to minimize Obama by Clinton. Well duh!  What […]

GOP Predictions – McCain and Romney

Son, After the Florida primary the Republican field will shrink. Two candidates will emerge as the front runners. McCain and Romney. McCain will be seen as the establishment candidate. Thompson, Huckabee, and Giuliani will line up with McCain. Ronmey will run as the outsider. He will run as the Republican of change. Not a bad […]

Republican Debate, 1-24-08

Son, Brian Williams is on stage to moderate his biased colleague Tim Russert. The Republicans are at it. These folks are much less inspiring than the Democrats. Is this because I don’t believe that any one of these men will be elected President. Perhaps. At any rate the Republican debate is at times boring. Mike […]

McCain Wins SC, Huckleberry is second

Son, This is an exciting day in Republican politics.  John McCain, my choice among Republicans, has won South Carolina.  South Carolina consistently picks the Republican nominee.  So today is a good day for America. Huckleberry Huckabee continues to show strength – and that represents an awful trend in America.  Huckleberry is a religious fanatic who […]

MIke Huckabee and Tom Cruise – kindred spirits

Son, Thankfully, you and I do not always agree. You are a Christian man, I live in Missouri. We are similar in that each of us is passionate about our beliefs. Having beliefs and being passionate about them is something that I admire in people. The simple boundary is this, if I want you to […]

Violations of our Constitution – Revolution

Son, We have written a number of times about our Founding Fathers, and their intent for this great country. Today finds our country again at the threshold of revolution. But American Revolution has come to mean that we have an election and the people decide in a peaceful manner what direction the country should take. […]

The Scary Theocracy of Huckabee

Son, When I was listening to Mike Huckabee talk about the United State Constitution I was was reminded of the Ayatollah in Iran. The government should be run by the dominant faith of the country. Follower of Jesus or not – the idea of Theocracy is really scary. Huckabee wants to mold the United States […]

Optimism, realism, and leadership

Son, Martin Luther King, Jr. has returned to the news. A Christian Minister who actively used his ministry to engage social issues and the government – he dreamed about a future of peace and prosperity. His resonating dream was inspirational and people followed. Was that a fluke of history, or is that a standard that […]

Huckabee, Morning Joe, and Matthew 25

Son, Mike Huckabee is a theologian running for President. It happens. He is an educated Christian Minister, well versed in theology. He is a former Governor, well versed in legislative and executive business. He is well spoken, charming, energetic, and has a healthy sense of humor. But my take is that his ambition overrides his […]

Republican Debate – 1-10-08

Son, Who are these guys? Where did they come from? John McCain is the only legitimate candidate in this field. Fred Thompson is campaigning for vice-president, hoping to return the position to one of ceremony and afternoon naps. Mike Huckabee is seeking the office of Witty Spiritualist. Rudy Giuliani hopes to be Chief Bomb Sniffer. […]

General Mood versus Individual Issues

Son, Statistics rule. The current political campaign for President highlights this truth. All of us pundits have been somewhat befuddled. But not as befuddled as the candidates themselves. Hillary Clinton has the most exhaustive list of issues and answers to the issues – yet she is struggling for support. Romney has taken traditional and well […]

Death Penalty Politics

Son, Government has many responsibilities.  The preamble to the constitution mentions ‘domestic tranquility” as one.  What does that mean – generally we think of maintaining order in a civilized manner.  And we maintain order with the rule of law.  The rule of law is much better than the rule of Monarchy or dictatorship, or no […]

Prose and Poetry in Politics

Son, Art and science are different but compatible.   These two disciplines must each be mastered by presidential candidates.  There is a science to politics, but good politics rises to an art form.   The successful candidate will be the person who best masters the art.  The science can be hired out.  Art is a […]

An American Revolution – 2008

Son, We are in a time of flux. This is a difficult time for statisticians. The Media Pundits are dissecting the Iowa statistics, trying to make sense of demographics and results. Some say Obama is about generational issues. Clinton is about gender. Edwards about populism. Huckabee about evangelism. This is not a time when these […]

NH Political Predictions of Ohg Rea Tone

Son, Some processes are all about momentum.  Momentum is not arbitrary – there are roots of rationale.  There is cause and purpose.  The forces at play in breaking the sled loose continue to propel – mass in motion is difficult to stop.  The block of votes gained in Iowa have gravitational pull that directly correlates […]

Huckabee is a win for John McCain

Son, John McCain is the real winner tonight, this caucus night in Iowa.   Mike Huckabee polled the largest numbers of support- soundly putting Mitt Romney in his appropriate place – way don there somewhere.  But McCain is the real winner because the Republican Party does not want Huckabee. The importance of the Iowa Caucus was […]

Obama Turns Out – MSNBC Reports

Son, It is 8:15 PM, CST, and MSNBC is reporting with 56% of the tally that Obama has 35%, Edwards has 32%, and Clinton has 31%.  This is a major shift in the political landscape of the Democratic Party.  Obama is going to present a stiff challenge to tradition. Adrea Mitchell is on now – […]

Anybody but Huckabee

Son. It looks like Mike Huckabee is taking the first turn with a lead in the race. But my thought is that Huckabee appeals to a small but enthusiastic audience. As the race progresses the Republican leadership will take an Anybody but Huckabee stance. Huckabee has had several gaffs on foreign policy. He has directly […]

Resolutions 2008 – WWJD

Son, Faith is expounded by all candidates.  Hey – the evangelicals have done a good job in politics.  They have swayed elections.  They have gained power.  They influence the national debate. I just wrote a post on Mike Huckabee.  He is that one guy who is a Christian Minister who is running for President.  I […]

Huckabee exposed – ambition overrules compassion

Son, Mike Huckabee is running for President, in case you had not noticed. He is a clever guy – well, I suppose all of those folks are pretty smart. Huckabee is very clever – but clever is different than being smart. Last week the world saw a nasty and horrible assassination of a world leader. […]

Qualities of an American President?

Son, This is a redraft of a previous post.  The previous post focused on Ron Paul – but while writing that post I realized there are bigger issues at stake. Ron Paul is running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. ON the surface it seems entirely remarkable that this man of […]

The Rise of Ron Paul

Son, Ron Paul is running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.  ON the surface it seems entirely remarkable that this man of little logic is having so much success, both in admiring fans and his ability to raise money.  He is worth looking at – not because of his ideas – […]

The politics of admitting mistakes

Son, Several candidates for President have long histories.  Many of them have run for other offices like Senator, or Governor, or Mayor.  In the process of seeking those offices they necessarily catered to the limited population of their respective ambitions.  Romney and Giuliani were pro-choice.  Giuliani has been married three times.  Huckabee raised taxes.  Clinton […]

Republican CNN YouTube Debate – November 28

Son, A new event is happening in America. The CNN YouTube Presidential Debate. I am skeptical but hopeful. I remember the first televised debate between Kennedy and Nixon in 1960. That event ushered in a new technology – we are seeing another. I’ll try to keep up. A question to Giuliani on Immigration – the […]
