He is the definition of a snake oil salesman.

He sounds nice in interviews but in his speeches he is down right vengeful.

I loved his line about the worst place to get information about someone is from someone running against him. I wonder how long he will stick to that mantra.

He also said when talking about regions freedom, that he was against people forcing others to close their stores because of a difference of beliefs, and made the greater argument of hurting an individuals economic status, as if he doesnt realize that not allowing gay people to get married doesnt do that as well.

He also made an analogy about religious people not bothering other people and there for their beliefs should be left alone,Something about forcing a Jewish person to eat food that isnt Kosher and muslims eating pork, which again destroys his argument about gay marriage. Religious freedom for me and not for thee.

It would be perfect for the Dems, as it would virtually assure a democratic victory. The only Republicans who can win a general election would have to be moderate enough to attract the center. Both of these guys are way too far to the right to attract any Dems and not many in the center. This always comes back to the base vs. the establishment being a problem for the GOP. Mitt didn't drop out for emotional reasons. He clinically ran the numbers and knew he couldn't do it.

Bush, Huck and Romney are has beens: Christie is fun to watch, but isn't going to get the nomination; Cruz is too far to the right and not appealing to the younger voters and other names floating around just aren't going to make it past first base.

As for me, I will wait to see how things develop, how the debates go and who (besides a democrat) goes to attack ads before making up my mind.

There is a long way to go.
So in other words, like all fantasy-based ideologues, Republicans these days are just hoping for what televangelists call "the pie in the sky, by and by"… which is to say they basically have nobody worth running, not even someone that their own rank-and-file would vote for!

If everything is about homosexuality to you, then you better vote liberal.

Sez the guy with a veritable "laundry list" of hot button 'litmus test' issues!

Although wouldn't it be handy if you could just neatly look thru the current list of RW candidates and only pick the parts you like (while ignoring all their kooky conspiracy theories, racism, misogyny, religious fanaticism, whatever)?!

Please provide the proof which make Huckabee conspiracy theorist, racist, fanatic etc. Or don't, I don't care, because I do not vote based on what you think, but based on what I think. I have my reasons to support Huckabee, and if you have reasons to not support him, then vote for someone else.

Rand Paul Has 3 Racist Strikes Now

Huckabee on contraception: Gov't Shouldn't Help Women Who Can't Control Libidos!

Santorum: Pregnant Rape Victims Should Just "Make the Best of It"

Rick Perry: "George W. Bush did a incredible job in the presidency, defending us from freedom."

Of course if you're a 'winger, words like racist, paranoid, fanatic and outright flippin' crazy, all seem kinda "relative" these days!
