    This isn't about predicting the future genius. Its about locking people away for what they do.

    Maurice Clemmons received a 35-year sentence in the early 1990s for armed robbery and theft. His sentence was commuted in May 2000, and he was let out three months later.

    MORE

    Here are the figures for neighboring states since 1996, when Huckabee took office (and keep in mind the population of these states is nearly 20 times ours):

    ___ >> Louisiana – 213.
    ___ >> Mississippi – 24.
    ___ >> Missouri – 79.
    ___ >> Oklahoma – 178.
    ___ >> Tennessee – 32.
    ___ >> Texas – 98 (in-cludes 36 inmates released because they were convicted on drug charges with planted evidence).

    Total: 624 vs. Huckabee’s 703.



    Next time do a little research before slapping on the sarcasm tights.
    I'm being dead serious. We should have Huckabee in jail right now for not being able to see the future. The past was laid out for him, the court made it's ruling.

    Actually, it's best to get the non-performers off the list before the race even starts. Huckabee is one.

    List of those who should really get ZERO support in the 2012 Republican nomination process:

    Romney - socialist
    Guiliani - liberal
    Anything named Bush - Bush
    Huckabee - anti-evolutionist (anyone that stupid shouldn't be voted for.)
    Thompson - He snoozed, he lost, let him keep nappin'.
    Paul - dork and doesn't know what the US Navy is for.

    That's pretty much it. Anyone else deserves their chance to shine. These old farts need to go to the country club so Mrs. Wood can beat on them, too.

    Re: Maurice Clemmons, man wanted for questioning, has troubling criminal history

    Yeah, whatever.

    Here's the critical paragraph in the linked OP article:

    Clemmons had been in jail in Pierce County for the past several months on a pending charge of second-degree rape of a child. He was released from custody just six days ago, even though was staring at seven additional felony charges in Washington state.
    The man had a known criminal record, was being held for a serious felony, and was facing possibly SEVEN additional felony charges in Washington, and the COURTS still saw fit to release him back into the world.

    The problem was the COURT, not Huckabee.

    Other gems:

    In another instance, Clemmons was accused of gathering his wife and young relatives around at 3 or 4 in the morning and having them all undress. He told them that families need to "be naked for at least 5 minutes on Sunday," a Pierce County sheriff's report says.

    ...

    Deputies also interviewed other family members. They reported that Clemmons had been saying he could fly and that he expected President Obama to visit to "confirm that he is Messiah in the flesh."
    Well, everyone knows Obama is the Messiah. He's not going to have time to visit everyone to prove it, He's going to test their FAITH.


    Oh, and don't forget this:
    Clemmons moved Washington in 2004, after being released from prison in Arkansas, state Department of Corrections records indicate. That would mean he had gone five years or so before landing in serious trouble with authorities here, according to a review of his criminal record.
    and

    Clemmons served 11 years before being released.

    News accounts say Huckabee commuted Clemmons' sentence, citing Clemmons' young age at the time the crimes were committed.

    But Clemmons remained on parole — and soon after landed in trouble again. In March 2001, he was accused of violating his parole by committing aggravated robbery and theft, according to a story in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

    He was returned to prison on a parole violation. But in what appears to have been a mistake, Clemmons was not actually served with the arrest warrants until leaving prison three years later. As a result, Clemmons' attorney argued that the charges should be dismissed because too much time had passed. Prosecutors dropped the charges.
    PROSECUTORS DROPPED THE CHARGES.

    In other words, if the legal system had performed properly, he would not have been in Tacoma to kill some cops. Thus Huckabee's earlier commutation of his sentence has no relevance to these recent events.

    And don't forget his lax stance on illegal immigration.
    If I remember correctly all but one of the political candidates held a "lax stance on immigration." Tancredo went absolutely....nowhere. In the american political system we have no unblemished politicians, just some that are better than others.

    The problem, is america's criminal justice system. Huckabee had a part in this and like the 100 or so others in this sad situation, they screwed up.

    ......and I'd put anyone of them up against that moron we put into office in a heartbeat.

    What you call an "animal" was not convicted of a violent crime while in Arkansas.

    He had served longer than criminals convicted of similiar crimes.

    What does not believing in evolution have to do with being president?

    Historically I would wager that the majority of U.S. presidents did not believe in evolution.

    Would you deny the presidency to a George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, or Teddy Roosevelt because they did not believe in evolution?

    Huckabee did what all govenors do....he made a decision. [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Clinton_pardons_controversy"]Kinda like clinton[/ame]. The only real difference between huckabee and clinton is huckabee didn't do it for profit.
