    What I like to call the Moby Whisperers are already at work. “Miiiike, the country needs you… Sure you might not win, but you need to be in the race to raise the isssues… Miiiiike….” All Huckabee and Bachmann and Santorum and Carson and whoever the heck else (and I respect all these folks as people, don’t get me wrong) is split the not-Jeb vote so that we end up with a choice of Jeb or Shillary/Fauxcahontas. We need a governor this time, so that we have a solid conservative with executive experience.

      After years of watching people like Huckabee get on and off this election-cycle merry-go-round, I actually do not respect most of them anymore. I’ve heard the same words and speeches and rah rah coming out of too many of them. But there are always new potential voters around to fall for the hype. Personally, I believe that, for most of them, it’s some combination of ego/thirst for power/$$$.

        Same here. I saw it with Romney actually in 2008 first. I could tell that he saw an opening in the debate and to watch this man pander, giving the politically correct answer, with such glee, it made me want to be sick. He reminded me of a puppy jumping on its master, begging, “like me, vote for me.” At least dogs have honest intentions.

        Since that time I have held Romney in utter contempt. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen.

      I agree we need a governor this time. Huckabee was a governor but my pick is Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. After him it would be Gov. Perry, from Texas. But please, no fat guy from N. J.

        All true, and I dread having to tolerate Christie while awaiting him to be blown out by his own big mouth. All he’s going to do is provide media fodder to make Republicans look like clowns, which they are salivating to do.

      I agree 100%.. They’re all good people with a certain amount of talent and skill, but none of them are ready for prime time. Re-treads like Huck, Santorum, Bachmann, Romney (and probably a couple more I can’t think of this moment) in particular need to stay out of the way. They make themselves look foolish, muddy the waters and make our voters weary. A few top governors, serious contenders with a real agenda and a real record and a real chance to win should be the first heat. Jeb does not meet those criteria. He, the ones mentioned above, and the several senators that have been mentioned in the media as potential candidates need to work the sidelines as emissaries of the conservative agenda, not be the center of attention themselves.

          What? Just when is an adult responsible for his/her health?

          The whale remark is a natural comment on an observation that at first blush seems confusing. Couple this with Mike’s love of playing music on his program…bass player I think, and you have a picture where Tacitus might even come from his grave to make some comments like “whale of a good time…”

          We don’t need this former governor–we need a true “general of the people” who is not afraid to come before the voting public and state exactly who she/he is and intends to be if elected, what is right and what is wrong…a moral code, and then of course, first principles must be expatiated by this candidate for all Americans to judge.

          Huckabee should stick to replacing Paul Harvey on the radio, he has the cadence, the voice and loves the attention…which is his Achilles’ heel, that need for attention.

          No need for you to correct an accurate perspective. You were correct politically, why try to be politically correct?

          You hurt my feelings with that attempt…to correct an accurate observation with more…sensitive wording.

          Truth can sometimes be painful, even for a fatso!

    Before we give the time of day to any candidate, we need to ask what they’ve done for this country for the past 6 years, other than talk. What exactly have the various “front runners” been doing? Even the various governors. It’s great if they have led at the state level but have they stepped forward at the national level? Have they been a leader rallying like minded governors? IMHO, we (the electorate rather than the parties) just continue to set the bar so very low when considering someone for the most important leadership role in world politics.

      Governors are elected and paid by the people of a state to run the state’s business – govern that state. Very often national issues impact the states directly. It is the policies and decisions relating to that overlap that need to be examined as to how stalwart, resilient, bold they reacted in those matters. Rick Perry probably has more experience with this than any of the others, and along with solid economic policies and good relationships with Hispanics makes him a tremendous candidate. Scott Walker has withstood onslaught after onslaught from the left with millions from labor unions and leftist groups thrown at him at every turn and has withstood it all by walking softly, strategizing like a WWII general and never wavering from his positions. The man DOES NOT CAVE, and is the only governor to ever win a recall election. Romney wanted him for running mate in ’12, but Walker said no way would he walk out on the voters who worked so hard to fight the recall so he could continue his work for Wisconsin and suggested to Romney he ask Paul Ryan. John Kasich has a breadth of experience having been a congressman for nine terms during which he became a leader in the conservative juggernaut of the ’94 election that brought Clinton to his knees. So, as a sitting governor now, he’s experienced with the internecine struggle between state and fed because he’s run his state well (just re-elected) yet knows national issues and the federal process. He also has a huge network of supporters and helpful associates. He would also be a “re-tread” candidate, having run for president in ’00, but that will be 16 years ago come this next election and he actually did well. He was a “contenda”, pushed out by the GOP brain trust that backed Dubya instead. If he’d been successful, he would have been the fist person in over a hundred years to move directly to the White House from the House. Bobby Jindal is geared up and ready to go. His state record as well as demonstrated knowledge about energy and terrorism are well-established. He also speaks easily and freely, solid and relaxed in his positions. Jindal is extremely impressive in his breadth of knowledge of many, many issues. He is one smart dude. I don’t see Pence getting off the ground; Christie will get off the ground and land with a loud “thud”.

      NO problem.

      This “who is the front runner?” game the media is playing at this point in time is merely another diversion they wish to create so that their hero…B. Hussein Obama, can go about his dirty business of changing this country as much as he can.

      For me–to be politically correct, is to choose the best candidate who will represent the majority will of the people, while upholding and “honoring” our Constitution…I think that might be the beginning of what others might label as “leadership” if memory is correct.

      Our very first “Dictator” Obama-mao is going to “triple down” on his antics during the remainder of his time in office. He has no intention of “working” with Congress.

      Plus, he has friends in Boehner and McConnell…cowards who just want to keep their power and do whatever it takes to achieve such.

      At this point in time, I like Ted Cruz and Dr. Carlson as a dynamo ticket…Cruz to fight for America and Ben to heal the rifts within our country.

      Mike can do radio where he could interview all those other wanna bees while raking in the cash to buy a guitar that the recent dead bassist of Cream owned.

      I no longer watch the Sunday talk news shows…to predictable in guests and slants.

      I want more of Judge Jenine PIrro on Saturday nights via Fox.

    Ted Cruz:

    “In my view, Hillary will be the Democratic nominee,” Cruz said. “And I think Hillary is every bit as radical as Obama is. I don’t think Bill is, I think Bill is genuinely more moderate. But I think Hillary is. So how does a Republican win in 2016? Einstein famously said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. If you look at the field in 2016, it’s going to be crowded field, there could be a dozen, there could be fifteen. There’s one bucket that, for lack of a better word, I’ll call the ‘moderate establishment’ bucket. It’ll be some combination of Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. My guess is two of the three will run. And my view is whoever’s in that bucket will raise tons of money. A lot of donors will rush to write them checks. And yet if the nominee comes from that bucket, the same voters who stayed home in 2008 and 2012 will stay home again and Hillary’s the winner.”

    One of the most infamous crimes in American History occurred due to Huckabee’s soft on crime, “thinks he’s God” attitude.

    “Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee on Tuesday defended his decision to commute the prison sentence years ago of the man who allegedly killed four police officers Sunday near Tacoma, Wash., saying the defendant had received an unfairly harsh sentence because he was young and black. ”

    Clemmons assassinated the 4 police officers while they sat in a cafe eating breakfast.

    “The killings have renewed scrutiny of Huckabee’s pardon record, and some prominent conservatives say the episode could be damaging to his candidacy if Huckabee decides to run for president in 2012. Though one of the Republican Party’s most popular figures, Huckabee has been dogged by questions over the more than 1,000 commutations and pardons he issued — more than his three predecessors combined — during his 10-year tenure.

    “If I could have known nine years ago this guy was capable of something of this magnitude, obviously I would never have granted a commutation,” he told Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly on Monday night. “It’s sickening.”

    “Maurice Clemmons was convicted in Arkansas in 1989 of robbery and theft, and he was serving a 108-year prison term when Huckabee commuted it to 47 years in 2000, making Clemmons eligible for parole.

    “That was the commutation,” Huckabee told O’Reilly. “I’m responsible for that. And it’s not something I’m happy about at this particular moment.”

    Maybe Huckabee would wrap up the anti-police vote.

    Anyone but Huckabee.

      We need to forget all these wannabes and losers and spend out time examining and discussing real contenders. Forget the media and what they want. Forget what the GOP brain trust wants. Then we need to rally around two or three of the best and let each show why he is better than the others. Then we vote.

    The monster started young:

    “Clemmons lived in Marianna, Arkansas in his early youth, and moved to Little Rock as a teen. He was arrested when he was a junior at Hall High School for carrying a .25-caliber pistol on school property.[5][6] He claimed to be carrying the gun because he was “beaten by dopers”, and said he had “something for them” if they attacked him again.[5] Clemmons did not return to school, and finished his education at eleventh grade.[7] In 1989, a 17-year-old Clemmons and two other accomplices robbed a woman at midnight in the parking lot of a Little Rock hotel bar. Clemmons pretended to have a gun in his pocket and threatened to shoot her if she did not give him her purse. When she responded, “Well, why don’t you just shoot?”, he punched her in the head and ran off with the purse, which contained $16 and a credit card.[6]

    “Clemmons was accused multiple times of displaying violent behavior during court appearances. In one incident, he dismantled a metal door stop and hid it in his sock to use as a weapon. It was discovered and confiscated by a court bailiff. In another incident, he took a lock from his holding cell and threw it at a bailiff, but missed and accidentally hit his mother instead.[5][6] Clemmons was once accused of reaching for a guard’s pistol while being transported to court. During one trial, he was shackled in leg irons and seated next to a uniformed officer because the presiding judge ordered extra security, claiming Clemmons had threatened him.[5] At age 16, Clemmons’ charges were committed from juvenile court to adult court due to the extremely violent nature of his crimes and demeanor.[8]

    “By 1990, Clemmons was sentenced to 108 years in prison for eight felony charges from his teenage years in Arkansas. The total prison term stemmed from multiple sentences, some of which were concurrent to others and some were consecutive.[8][9] The largest sentencing came in 1990, when he was given a 60-year prison term for breaking into an Arkansas state trooper’s home and stealing about $6,700-worth of items, including a gun.[6][10]

    “During his sentencing on the charges, a circuit judge told Clemmons that he had broken his mother’s heart, to which he responded, “I have broken my own heart.”[5] Clemmons was sentenced in 1989 to 35 years in prison for robbing the woman in front of the Little Rock hotel bar. Among his other sentences were six years for weapon possession based on his high school arrest;[6] and eight years for burglary, theft and probation in Pulaski County on September 9, 1989. He was ineligible for parole until 2015 or later.”

      Doesn’t it say something about Huckabee’s ego that he could be so closely associated and partly responsible for the slaughter of these 4 officers, the largest murder of police officers by an assailant in US history, and yet somehow deem himself worthy to hold the highest office in the world?

      Most decent honorable people would never be able to forgive themselves that their exceedingly poor judgement resulted in the death of 4 innocent law enforcement officers. They would go into virtual seclusion and live anonymous lives focused on good deeds. Not the Huckster.

      Those families and that community and the children of those officers must feel sick every time they see or hear of Huckabee.

    After the likes of Obama, Holder and Sharpton, I want an unbiased president who will apply the law to all people equally. Whites are called racist but don’t dare say a black is racist. White people made Oprah a billionaire yet she can say publically, racism will not end till the old whites die off. There is no backlash. Obama can send government officials to the criminal brown’s funeral and have his mother sent to address the UN on violence and no backlash. A tax evader like Sharpton visits the WH 83 times and no backlash. News about black on white or black on black killings is suppressed yet white on black is headline news for months. Civil rights are applied only to blacks. Public officials can lose their job if they make a comment about blacks that the PC police classify as racist, yet, blacks can make racist comments about whites and they are praised. The history of Irish slaves is suppressed in this country and when mentioned, its indentured servants. Exposed the truth and have laws applied to every citizen equally. Put a muzzle on the PC police and allow people freedom of speech.
