Democrats drooling patiently to break Huckabee’s glass jaw

I hate to say I told you so (read my previous post). This was taken directly from the Drudge Report 12/11/2007.

DEMS HOLD FIRE ON HUCKABEE; SEE ‘EASY KILL’ IN GENERAL ELECTION

Democrat party officials are avoiding any and all criticism of Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee, insiders reveal.

The Democratic National Committee has told staffers to hold all fire, until he secures the party’s nomination.

The directive has come down from the highest levels within the party, according to a top source.

Within the DNC, Huckabee is known as the “glass jaw — and they’re just waiting to break it.”

In the last three weeks since Huckabee’s surge kicked in, the DNC hasn’t released a single press release criticizing his rising candidacy.

The last DNC press release critical of Huckabee appeared back on March 2nd.

[DNC Press Release Attack Summary:

Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) – 37% (99 press releases)
Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) – 28% (74)
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) – 24% (64)
Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) – 8% (20)
Governor Mike Huckabee – 2% (4)]

In fact, as the story broke over the weekend that Huckabee said he wanted to isolate AIDS patients back in 1992, the DNC ignored the opportunity to slam the candidate from the left.

“He’ll easily be their McGovern, an easy kill,” mocked one senior Democrat operative Tuesday morning from Washington.

“His letting out murderers because they shout ‘Jesus’, his wanting to put 300,000 AIDS patients and Magic Johnson into isolation, ain’t even scratching the surface of what we’ve got on him.”

The discipline the Democrats have shown in not engaging Huckabee has earned the praise of one former Republican Party official:

“The Democrats are doing a much better job restraining themselves than the GOP did in 2003 when Howard Dean looked like he was on the brink of winning the nomination.”

A close friend to Huckabee explains: “Look, Mike is Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare. They should be squirming.”

I wouldn’t call Huckabee the devil but he’s certainly whacky. Scary, abortion clinic protester whacky.

We must suppress Hukabee and advocate for Mitt. Huckabee is the devil dressed in conservative clothing.

Very interesting tactic…Huckabee is quietly scary…He seems like a nice, sensible, down-to-earth, well spoken man of the people, but lurking beneath the surface are some very dangerous ideas. I’m not sure he would be such an easy kill in this day and age. 10 or 15 years ago, yes, he wouldn’t even be surging like he is now to become a potentially easy kill in a national election, but these are trying times. We shall see. He might not just be Hillary’s worst nightmare, he might be America’s.

Meanwhile, did anyone else see Rudy say on “Meet the Press” this past Sunday, “I don’t make many mistakes, but when I do, they’re big ones”? Wow, talk about a confidence builder.
