Huckabee Heads To Iowa This Month


Sure, it’s just a book tour, but we all know what it’s really about.

From NY Times:

Mr. Huckabee’s new book could offer him a fresh platform to weigh in on the emerging debate over the Republican Party’s future. His Web site describes it as: “Huckabee’s amazing story, in his own words s — from making commercials with Chuck Norris to meeting a Michigan woman who insisted on donating her wedding ring.

But this is more than just a campaign memoir. It’s a vision for a smarter, fairer type of politics— “‘vertical politics” — as he has espoused before, that focuses on common-sense solutions for education, health care, the economy, and many other issues. It’s not about right versus left; it’s about taking America up rather than down.”

If that’s Huckabee’s message in 2012, it’ll need some tweaking. “I’ll see your “change” and raise you some “vertical politics”?” Hmm…

Perhaps, it should be “I’ll see your “change” and raise you some “common sense.”

Regardless, the themes are emerging…

    Wait a sec, the same guy who said that we should be amending the Constitution to suit “God’s standards” is preaching “common-sense” politics? Isn’t that what we call a paradox?

    It would be nice if they would give us a few months to get over the last election before they flood Iowa’s air waves with a new round of ads. Sometimes I hate being the first in the nation every election cycle.

    No, he tends to have one message for speaking to the general public and another for evangelicals.

    C’mon, Obama isn’t even sworn in yet!

    Still I hope Huckabee and Palin run in 2012, Obama will be able to easily mop the floor with them.
