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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
