Go Huckabee!

Posted by joelbyer on January 4, 2008

I’m really hoping Mike Huckabee becomes the nest president of the United States. Why? Glad you asked! 🙂

  1.  He’s a strong social conservative. (Unlike Romney, Guilianni, or a few others…there’s no doubt of where he stands.)
  2. He has this line that I love. “I’m conservative, but I’m not mad about it.” For too long Republicans have been known for what they are against…not just what they are for.
  3. A Reaganesque charm. Does personal charm matter for a President? Yes. Before this thought is immediately disregarded, please stop…and consider. Reagan accomplished many things in spite of a strongly Democratic Congress, simply because he appealed to the people and they responded with pressure on their local representative to enact the whatever piece of legislation. Before Huckabee got everyone’s attention, the Republican side of Presidential politics was about as exciting as vanilla yogurt….with apologies to vanilla yogurt.
  4. His concern for the poor. I think it sees it as a moral responsibility. Sounds almost Wesleyan or something.
  5. And finally…the clincher: (dramatic drum roll please)
Who would you rather see in a Presidential debate. Hilary and Romney or Obama vs. Huckabee?
I rest my case. 🙂
