Here are some great comments from Wolf Blitzer’s Article on Huckabee yesterday entitled: “Huckabee deserves credit”
“One thing you have to agree on, wheather you like or dislike about Mike Huckabee’s policies, you don’t have to guess what he will be saying next. I relate to Mike Huckabee because he is the only one that can relate to the every day citizen Republican, Democrat, or Independent, and the only thing I have been hearing from him is for the good of our country.”
“Obama as Commander and Chief would be an obamanation.” Ha Ha!
“Considering that Huckabee JUST missed S. Carolina and MO, and Romney was further back, it is obvious that a vote for Romney boosted McCain to his current position. Not only would the gap be much smaller, but McCain wouldn’t have gotten his rocket-booster of “momentum” and things would be very different–Romney himself may even have fared better in places like CA. It’s time for fence-sitting Romney supporters to stop holding Huckabee back and switch, for the sake of the Republican Party.”
“If Huckabee were genuinely interested in the causes of his constituents, he would be attacking McCain, not Romney….”
I think this is because Mike Huckabee won’t defend himself by hurting others, he’ll let God do that, much like David in the Bible. James Dobson spoke strongly against McCain (see below), and after meeting with Mike Huckabee recently, Lou Engle is planning on writing against McCain as well. And with Romney gone as of today, Mike Huckabee is the only true conservative candidate who stands for righteousness. The church must arise and vote for him. Huckabee said that he feels his mandate from the Lord is to be the next William Wilberforce for the ending of Abortion.
The Focus on the Family president, James Dobson released a statement to the Laura Ingraham show:
“I’m deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, who voted for embryonic stem cell research to kill nascent human beings, who opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, and who has little regard for freedom of speech, who organized the Gang of 14 to preserve filibusters, and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language.
“I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are. He has at times sounded more like a member of the other party. McCain actually considered leaving the GOP in 2001, and approached John Kerry about being Kerry’s running mate in 2004. McCain also said publicly that Hillary Clinton would make a good president. Given these and many other concerns, a spoonful of sugar does not make the medicine go down. I cannot, and I will not vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience.
“But what a sad and melancholy decision this is for me and many other conservatives. Should John McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime. I certainly can’t vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions. If these are the nominees in November, I simply will not cast a ballot for president for the first time in my life. These decisions are my personal views and do not represent the organization with which I’m affiliated. They do reflect, however, my deeply held convictions about the institution of the family, about moral and spiritual beliefs, and about the welfare of our country.”
A random commenter on Dobson’s “nascent” statements: “I agree 1000% with Mr. Dobson. My only question is, why did you wait so long? We stand on the eve, the day of, super tuesday. You took no action until today? This is pathetic.”
This is a very good question. I also wonder why Dobson and many other influential christian leaders have not endorsed and supported the only clear voice in these elections, Mike Huckabee. Maybe because they think he’s “unelectable”. But I say, he’ll have more electability if you just help him and believe in him! Huckabee started small, but he outlasted guys like Giullani, Thompson, and Romney and has proved he is not backing down. He is coming back, and I believe this is the Lord’s favor/ grace on him, he was unknown, working harder than any other candidate (1 Cor. 15:10) with nearly the least money. Just read what Wolf Blitzer wrote (link above).
I would say this: The unelectable has become ineluctable.
