What would Gov. Huckabee do if a gun was pointed at him?

May 17th, 2008 | by Steve O |

During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain — joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.

“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he’s getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”

::Rim shot:: Try the veal folks, Mike will be here all week.

    The man of the party of fear and hate accusing someone else of cowardice.

    Huckabee would run and claim he was off to lose 34 more pounds.

    I had read something somewhere about Huckabee maybe being chosen McCain’s V-P. That would be the only thing to keep me from voting for McCain, at this point. I wouldn’t let Huckabee get even that close to the presidency. If what I read was a trial balloon from the McCain camp, I hope like hell this squashes that lunatic idea fully, completely and absolutely. I don’t want to vote for Obama…don’t make me do that, John! Step away from that Huckster…slowly!

    What’s your problem with Huckabee, Craig? Seems odd to me.

    It seems to me that Huckabee’s what they would call a Christian Democrat in Europe, (too) socially conservative (for my taste) but communitarian (read collectivist over individualism) in public policy. He’s pro-death penalty; I’m not. He’s said we should amend to Constitution to bring it in alignment with God’s Word; I think a secular Constitution is just what the founders ordered. He’s way too quick on the commutation and pardons and way too fixated on those who say they’ve had a religious awakening or can gain the support of some religious leader or pastor; I prefer that, unless there’s weighty evidence that there were significant problems in the trial or evidence at trial, juries and judges are in the best position to determine guilt, innocence and the appropriateness of punishment. He favors No Child Left Behind; ‘nuf said. He favors cap and trade, a miserable failure wherever it’s been tried (although, to be fair, probably all candidates, including McCain, are cap and traderers, so that’s a wash all across the board). He seems too likely to be a nannyist on health-care issues, trying to eliminate personal choice in favor of forcing people to do what he thinks is good for them; I’m for personal responsibility and individual choice. He favors President Bush’s positions on immigration; I don’t. He opposes both same-sex marriage and civil unions for gays; I favor same-sex marriage as an issue of equal treatment under the law. He thinks students should, in addition to evolution, be exposed to creationism in science class-rooms; I think science class-rooms should be for teaching science.

    I guess I could go on all day but that should give you an idea of how deep my antipathy to Mike Huckabee as President is.
