:hm:
Huckabee strikes me as the Dean of the conservatives. Not really a front-runner in the long-term, but someone who can shake things up initially and make things interesting for a little while.

Sorry, it's just that it's been quoted a lot. I don't think any of us would repeatingly say he still backs it up if we didn't have a quote.

But I'm assuming you just read the last page or so and not the whole thread.

No, I was on page 4 or so and responded to something that hadn't previously been backed up. Probably should have gone a tad further.

It's not your fault that there are some that read that quote and somehow come off with the wrong facts. You just ended up looking like them.

Ah, yes.

If anyone is wondering, I disagree with Huckabee's assertion that it is for "our" greater good that AIDS victims be isolated (which is the last thing they need, as they, too, are human beings with emotions and feelings), especially since it has little medical backing, and it's really quite cruel to begin with.

Anyway, carry on. My respect for the man has just dropped a little bit.

Huckabee, like most of the Republican candidates, is not a conservative but a radical right wing Christianist.

You're welcome . Here's hoping that things will change for the better-I have a strong feeling they will.

Nice backhand by Mitt: :

HUMBOLDT, Iowa (AP) - Mitt Romney accused Republican presidential rival Mike Huckabee of "running from the wrong party" for criticizing President Bush's foreign policy as an "arrogant bunker mentality."
Romney defended Bush against Huckabee's charge, which the former Arkansas governor leveled in the January-February issue of the respected journal Foreign Affairs.

"I can't believe he'd say that," Romney said to a gathering of about 100 supporters in a restaurant here. "I had to look again—did this come from Barack Obama or from Hillary Clinton? Did it come from John Edwards? No, it was Governor Huckabee."

Romney has been aggressively criticizing Huckabee, stressing differences over immigration and economic policy in hopes of recapturing a lead he had enjoyed in Iowa for most of the year. Huckabee's Foreign Affairs article, made public Friday, offered another line of attack.

"I'm the last person to say that this administration is subject to an arrogant, bunker mentality that is counterproductive here and abroad," he said. "The truth of the matter is this president has kept us safe these past six years and that has not been easy to do."

Still, Romney carefully stressed that he believed the administration had engaged in missteps during the war in Iraq and said his defense of Bush did not mean he would follow the president's current policy to the letter.

"We were under-prepared and under-planned and understaffed," he said of the war following the fall of Saddam Hussein. "There is no question we weren't perfectly managed."

Romney would not go as far as suggesting that Huckabee's written views indicated he was not ready for the presidency, turning aside a reporter's question by saying "I'm going to let other people make that assessment."

But Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom said the article "suggests that he does lack depth when it comes to dealing with other nations."

Horse race

The whole thing is a horse race and I'm not sure who is going the get the either parties nominations. Huckabee might get the Republican nomination because he is a Baptist which the Christian Right likes. They are very organized and they can get the vote out for him.
Democrat I don't know, but its nice to see Hillary screwing up. The Green Party wants Nader to run again. I like Richardson, since I'm from New Mexico and he has done a great job in New Mexico. I also like Edwards.

Huckabee's gained momentum in the polls lately. That's all I really have. It was more a smart-ass remark.
