Whuh...? Huckabee Taking a Second Look At Presidential Run
— Ace

Well... fine I guess.

Was he waiting on Palin's decision?

Speaking of Huckabee running for President, Christie may, or may not, decide to run, or not run, this weekend.

His father, brother, and wife are all said to be... in favor of him running.

2 Jeezus.  Christie might be to the left of Romney, depending on how you look at it.  I can't see voting for him.

I hope they get in. I don't care for Huckabee, but I would like to push of the second tier people like Bachman and Santorum and get real choices in the race.(even if they are people I won't choose)

I still don't understand why Huckabee didn't get in. Obama the most vulnerable incumbent in recent memery.

On one hand it says people think Obama is easy pickens.

On the other hand, it might be telling us we have a lot of egotistical dopes in the GOP.

9 Fuckabee will do it to keep the MORMON off the ticket because he's a baptist. Even if it means letting Obama win the White House should he ever get the nomineeship himself.

13 Barack Obama is a stuttering clusterf*ck of a miserable failure.

And thank you, Rick Perry: the fact of your unprepared and faltering run is encouraging these two to run.  Had you been prepared and stuck to your guns of "I'll make Washington as inconsequential to your life as possible" and "Barack Obama is a stuttering clusterf*ck of a miserable failure" (maybe not your words, but certainly the sentiment), Christie wouldn't even be considering, and we'd never have to hear the Huckster's name again.

30 O/T Re the sidebar of Frank Miller's Holy War Review by  Spencer Ackerman, Juicebox Mafia:

Naturally, the only way to learn more about the next attack is to torture a surviving terrorist — which Miller illustrates pornographically — even though the Scary Muslim says “pain means nothing to me,” so it’s not like the Fixer is torturing, you know, a human being.

Meanwhile, Herman Cain is gaining traction.

Why? Because Smith is butthurt because Perry and Cornyn supported the republican challenger to his seat on the SC?

For those you who may not know, judges in Texas are elected, not appointed. So Perry's big sin here, apparently, was supporting a republican contender for another republican's seat.

Yeah... I've just been doing some research on justice Green (who replaced Smith after being backed by Perry and Cornyn (of all people))- having read a couple of his opinions, he seems pretty solidly conservative to me.

The two I've read so far: A dissenting opinion on an Exorcism Tort case (yes, really) where he basically said that when the plaintiff makes their case without using religious arguments, the defense should be required to do so as well (I'm for that).

The Second was an opinion against the PUC saying they don't have the authority to unilaterally modify contracts between a provider (including transmission rates) and a Co-Op.

I'm not seeing how those are not conservative.

So... because Smith defeated "his boy" (a liberal, by your telling), Perry then backed a conservative republican (based on reading his opinions) who has won two terms?  Does that make sense?

And, if Rodriguez was elevated to Federal Court by Bush, he couldn't have been too bad.  He's the man who got us Alito and Roberts.  And, say what you will about whatshername- no one claimed she was liberal- just inexperienced.

But Rodriguez ran as a moderate. Smith as a conservative. But Smith couldn't hang onto the seat when another conservative challenged him, nor could he win a seat held by a conservative.

Do you read your own comments for comprehension?  Bush still nominated him.  Bush would still have done his own vetting, and had Rodriguez not been up to snuff, he would have selected someone else.  Or do you think Perry could have gotten someone like Sonya Sotomayor appointed just on his request?

197 I think Christie and Huckabee should run off  together and get married - to each other...no, wait...in these "enlightned" times, let's make it a group marriage and let Todd and Sarah Palin come along too. Then we can have a combination cooking/eating/lifestyle reality show about how it all turned out on the Lifetime channel. Or would National Geographic be more appropriate since the Palins hunting and Christie eating would be part of the show?

Could it be that I just don't give a shit about any of these people? I think maybe it could be the case.

198 "Are you being sarcastic or do you think being a Baptist makes one bigoted? " Nope, when Huckabee had no chance of winning the nomineeship halfway through and all the candidates who saw they couldn't win dropped out. Huckabee refused to dropped out until Romney dropped out to keep splitting the votes and giving all the votes to McCain. Plus Baptist have this crazy hate of Mormons especially when Huckabee said this "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?" in the last campaign. Fuckabee can fuck off.

199 #189 Because he appointed Rodriguez. I'm hoping he won't do something similar if he becomes President.


I've seen no evidence that Rodriguez is a flaming liberal.

At worst, he described himself as moderate.

201 Teh Huck just told Cavuto that it was news to him that he was reconsidering.

202 I've seen no evidence that Rodriguez is a flaming liberal.

I've been looking for an opinion he wrote, and I can't find one.

The closest I came was a summary of one he wrote (joined by 6 other Justices, IIRC) overturning a previous court who said a girl had to have parental notification before she had an abortion.  Of course, as a side note- the Justices cited evidence (that is: that had seen and were persuaded by this evidence) that the girl faced threat of harm if parental notification was pursued.

So... I'm not seeing where that's a liberal decision.

It's almost like a certain supporter of "Hi, I like individual mandates, ethanol subsidies, and tax increases" Romney is trying to find things to nit-pick about Perry's record.

What, Polynikes?  Was it not actually a coyote?  Did Rick Perry shoot your dog by mistake?

203 "207 Teh Huck just told Cavuto that it was news to him that he was reconsidering." If that's true, over the last week we've seen news about considerations from Christie, Huckabee, and Palin. Is it me or is this some kind of Democrat tactic to poison the pool and split the party apart?

204 #205 no one said he was a flaming liberal. I said he was a democrat. I was responding to #99 who indicated Perry would appoint hard core conservatives. He had a chance to do so in Texas and didn't . He was pandering to the Hispanic vote. No big deal to you fine. It's not a deal breaker for me either but Perry's not the man a lot of you want to portray him as.

Former
democrat (like Regan, like Perry).  And the only one who drudged that point up was, surprise!, Smith.  So....yeah.

And how is that anytime Perry (or any other conservative) nominates a Hispanic to a prominent position, it's pandering?

Sounds racist to me.

Here is a good article regarding Perry's selection of Rodriguez:

Key quote:

"Rodriguez named the reliably liberal Supreme Court Justice David Souter as his judicial role model"

^^ Is it a crime to be a democrat now?  You DO know that a lot of Dims in the South are conservative right?  I just played hell in the last election with the NRA - who endorsed Democrat Gene Taylor for Mississippi.

But then again - Taylor had a flawless record on gun control.

215 NO. I can handle Perry, I can handle Romney, and whichever one gets the nom I want Cain to be their VP. But Huckster-abee, no, I just can't, I thought we were safe this year from his clutches. He is just as bad as Obama in my book, and someone needs to stop telling him he is presidential material.

I don't want to vote for Romney and Christie in the primary. They are the establishment candidates for me. Christie has great communication skill and has dones some good work in NJ. That 's about it. He is playing hard-to-get with us after emphatically saying no. For all the pissing towards Palin 's "indecision", Christie is even worse. I am done with him and the Rep establishment.

 

Posted by: LAI at September 30, 2011 12:30 PM (nLTW4)

219 BTW, given the history of the Rep establishment candidates: Bush 1, Dole, McCain (and even Bush 2 to some extent), how well has it worked out for us? They wanted to harp on the Tea Party wrt O'Donnell etc... Fine, they are the ones who sided with Crist vs Rubio. Rubio had to fight against the establishment as well as the left in FL. Just look at the way they have treated our candidates vs the left/Obama. Just look at the facts and you have the feeling that they would rather real conservatives lose against Obama. I am done with them and their candidates (Romney and Christie). I will stick with Perry and Cain as my plan B. I want the most conservative candidate this election cycle. If the Rep establishment wants to earn our trust again, they had better to their best to help our candidate (as we did repeately for them) vs Obama/the left. Otherwise, just like in FL, we will have to fight both the Rep establishment and the left this cycle again. If the country still doesn't have enough of Obama yet, then so be it. We need more objective education.

'An announcement that Chris Christie is running should ape the scene from Jurassic Park with the glass of water.'
