What the huck, Mike?

11 01 2008

I like Mike Huckabee, he’s not a bad guy. I don’t want him to ever be our president. I think he has the ability to lead and the ability to do what is right but I don’t think he has the ability to tactfully follow through with the voice of the people. He has said some pretty kooky things during the campaign and he just keeps trumping himself with something more inflammatory and border-line nutty.

Remember when he asked a reporter if Mormons believe that Satan and Jesus are brothers? It was spun as him just asking a harmless question, not knowing much about the LDS religion. The thing is, he was a Baptist preacher and we Mormons know that the Baptists believe we’re all going to hell because we have a different understanding of Christ and the Godhead than they do. When talking to a Baptist it’s essentially “I’m right and you’re wrong so you’re going to hell”. The Huckster’s innocent question was a jab at Mormonism and he knows it. But it’s all fair, I don’t take offense. I just see what he was doing and it kind of cracked me up how he played it off as “Huh? I didn’t know, I was just asking”.

So last week he made the following comment:

“One of the great challenges facing us is that we do not commit the same
mistakes with our growing Hispanic population that we did with African
Americans 150 years ago and beyond. We’re still paying the price for the
pathetic manner in which this country handled that… I think, frankly, the
Lord is giving us a second chance to do better than we did before.”

According to the Huckster, God is giving us a second chance to make up for the horrors of slavery? How does he put these things together in his mind let alone allow them to come flying out of his pie hole into the world wide media? First of all, the slaves were kidnapped, beaten, forced into slavery and treated like wild beasts. The illegals immigrating from Mexico are coming here of their own free will, finding jobs, living freely, are given countless benefits that the slaves would never have dreamed of receiving.

What’s next? Will he draw parallels between the attacks of 9/11 and mad cow disease, or global warming and the price of gold? What a goofy bastard.

But that’s not all. Look what he said last night in the Republican debate when asked about the Iranian fast boats approaching US Navy vessels and his opinion on how the matter was handled.

“Be prepared, first, to put your sights on the American vessel. And then be prepared that the next thing you see will be the gates of Hell, because that is exactly what you will see after that.”

Now, the truth is that I wish more presidents would speak in these terms when it comes to standing up to our aggressors, but they need to be the president, not some candidate. Good ol’ Huckabee is showing himself to be an off-the-cuff wierdo. What kind of diplomatic progress would a guy like this be able to make if in the debates he has already told Iran that “if you piss me off I’m sending you to hell”?

In a way I do like it but that’s not the right way to get into office, telling someone they’ll be shown the gates of hell. Especially a bunch of Muslim fanatics who think that if they blow themselves up that their next move is to bone down on 72 virgins. The Huckster might be a good advisor, VP or cabinet member but I hope to God he never gets the Republican nod.

Please, all you evangelicals who support the Huckster, take a good look and remember that this wingnut has his eye on the destruction of the wicked and the rapture. That’s no way to function in the DC political environment and no way to manage the office of President. Those things are up to God, not Mike Huckabee. This is my opinion of Mike Huckabee. I believe his Baptist preacher roots are too deep to remove him from the spectacle of hell fire and brimstone to be the diplomat he needs to be. Huckabee is kooky! Mommy, hold me!

He is bat-shit crazy, and I am literally scared of him being elected. Because I do believe — as Bush’s double terms show — that there are enough people in this country who vote without a fucking clue what they are doing for it to happen. “Nice guy” could be enough for them, even though that “nice guy” spews hatred and other insanities at random.
