Why I Love Mike Huckabee
Hugh Hewitt had Mike Huckabee on his show recently. I missed it, but read the transcript and found this gem: HH: Governor, here’s a contradiction in the book, and I read it very closely. On some places like Page 70, you denounce “yuppie greedheads”. Another place, you’re assaulting the management of Halliburton and Home Depot and Pfizer. And then in another place, you’re palling around | Read More »
Blogging the Right Thing: Elections by Ebay
Chapter 6 of Do the Right Thing is called "Elections by Ebay" and it’s kind of reversal of Chapters 2-5 which focused on policy with a little bit of campaign story sprinkled in. This tells the behind-the-scenes story of the Huckabee campaign.Some of the interesting factoids in here include the fact that when Huckabee started his campaign website, he was receiving sixty online contributions per | Read More »
Is Huckabee grinding his ax or just being brutally honest about the GOP?
In his book, which was released this week, chronicles the events of the campaign as well as his thoughts, feelings and opinions on it and the candidates. In fact, his opinions are a little too forthcoming to some and many are saying he is settling old scores, or is attempting an early campaign against possible challengers. He flatly states that many of those that ran | Read More »
Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and the Republican Party
I suppose this needed to be said sooner or later.I would guess you all are familiar with the tension between Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney. Nasty things have been said, accusations are flying left and right, and somebody may get hurt before all this is over.

Blogging the Right Thing: “I Love Iowa”
As Mike Huckabee’s book, "Do the RIght Thing" is going to be a topic of some controversy for the next few weeks, I think it’s more helpful for people to know the facts about the book rather than go on and on about excerpts. So, over the next few weeks, I’ll be blogging 1 Chapter a day. Today, I’ll take the Prologue: I Love IowaCaucus | Read More »
To Earn Trust, Republicans Must Embrace Core Principles
Let me begin by thanking Erick and the guys at RedState for allowing conservatives to have a place to express their views online. As a party we need to keep looking forward concerning New Media and the posts found on this site work towards achieving that. I have had a front-row seat to the Republican Party over the past several years. I’ve been a volunteer, | Read More »

To turn the clock back 10 months
In this political season where we seemed predestined to lose, where we have tasted what it is like to lead, still have a solid hope of pulling off the presidential election, and minimizing congressional losses, I’ve found myself drifting back a few months to our heated candidate comparison during our party’s presidential primaries.I’d like to preface this by noting that Conservatives lost in the primaries. | Read More »

Hey! I use Lava…
It became apparent to me last night, that the speakers were being spread out as evenly as possible. By far, however, last night was it. Romney did well, Huckabee rocked, Rudy dug in and attacked, and Palin – well she was amazing.The “angry left” disagrees I’m sure, yet I’ve heard much buzz around these parts here today. My classes are typically full of left leaning | Read More »
Second of the three: Huckabee.
And serving up the humor: As much as I appreciate the opportunity to speak tonight, I really was originally hoping for the slot on Thursday called the acceptance speech. I really tire of hearing how the Democrats care about the working guy as if all Republicans grew up with silk stockings and silver spoons. In my little hometown of Hope, Arkansas, the 3 sacred heroes | Read More »

If you are like me, you’ve been in the dark a bit day to day about the speaker schedule for the Republican Convention, given that the hurricane scrambled the original lineup. Here is tonight’s lineup, and it’s a good one following last night’s right-left combo of Fred Thompson (or, if you were watching most of the networks, the last third or so of Fred) and | Read More »
