    Re: Huckabee slams ‘sensationalized’ coverage of comments on Obama, Kenya

    mike huckabee aside, this president really does have a real problem with how he is perceived by a broad slice of the american electorate

    a majority of americans, including a majority of democrats, do not believe their president's own declaration of his religion

    Growing Number of Americans Falsely Believe President Obama is Muslim - Political Punch

    they don't know what he is, which is, when you think about it, astonishing

    whose fault that may be, whose problem...

    that the president of the us could find himself in a position where so many of his people find him something other...

    at least other than what he says he is

    as a professional politician and as the leader of this country and the free world, y'know, he really must be held responsible at some level for how he got here, how mismanaged must be his image

    i don't know, i don't care, mike huckabee all aside

    but this president really does have a real problem with how he is accepted or not by the american people

    at a much higher level of policy, part of the president's problem is his inexplicable antipathy to the brits who so many once loved him

    it's so alien an attitude for most modern americans, this anti union jack animus...

    oh well

    stay up

    It's still early, but the polls show Huckabee is the front runner for the Republican nomination and running tie with Obama for the general election.

    Every time he has a slip of the tongue like that, his bagger speaker fees increase ten percent.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

Because what would the Kenyan independence movement have to do with 4 childhood years spent in Indonesia?

    The point he was trying to make is that spending 4 years of his childhood abroad means that somehow Obama's perspective is less American than his would be.

    The greater point of the Op-Ed that has Huckabee's panties in a bunch is attacking him for the large number of violent criminals he let out on early release based on the fact that they'd "found Jesus" - many of whom went on to commit further violent crimes and Maurice Clemmons who killed four in Washington state, where the Op-Ed writer is from. Huckabee has a tendency to play this down; especially when he frequently states that Clemmons got 108 years for burglary, but "wasn't violent and wasn't armed". This is patently untrue and if Huckabee had done his research on the guy, he would've realized that this man who'd "found Jesus" committed several assaults in prison - including sexual assault.

    Huckabee seems to have a tendency to make things up.
    Thank you. You are one of the few people that seems to get this. He deliberately played to his audience, though he knew better. The preacher should know this was an egregious violation of the ten commandments as it was bearing false witness. Then the guy didn't have the guts to stand-up and admit it when caught, he just covered up his lies with more lies trying to suggest he innocently misspoke. No, he did not.

    I had always held Huckabee in great esteem as I thought he was a man of integrity. I was wrong. He is a sewer rat like all other politicians.
