Enough of Huckabee

In my last mention of the criticism Huckabee is receiving from Republicans I hinted at the distinct religious flavor of his campaign. Well, he’s finally let it all hang out. Just watch the video. I don’t need to add anything else to it.

As if that isn’t enough, he also has an apparent clemency fetish. In particular he’s being pummeled for the pardon of a convicted murderer rapist who went on to murder; a case that’s being called Huckabee’s Willie Horton moment.

Oh, and he’s falling apart on the immigration issue, too.

  1. Independent of his stances, has he actually done any good for Arkansas? Like, is that state any better under him?

    I mean, if we’re going to give Giuliani hell for being a mayor that cleaned up NYC, and Tommy Thompson can’t even be a viable candidate despite having an impressive record on actual welfare reform, then how is someone who hasn’t even accomplished anything – assuming Huckabee has does nothing – being taken seriously in any way?

  2. Huckabee appears to be a social conservative/fiscal liberal. I don’t think we need another “compassionate conservative.” But he’s doing well in the polls lately. If nobody is able to knock him down and he gets the nomination then I’ll have to vote for him in the general with my nose held tightly. It will be anybody but Hillary at that point. If I had my choice it would be Giuliani or maybe Thompson, but the latter seems to be too lazy to campaign effectively.
