Will Mike Huckabee Take Back That Endorsement?

    In my mailbox a few weeks ago, I received a fundraising letter from Mike Huckabee encouraging me to give money to Chuck Grassley (R-IA).The problem with that, of course, is Grassley has been cooperating with Democrat attempts to get a bi-partisan healthcare bill out of Congress.If Grassley comes out in opposition, I’m cool with that. He just might. But if he lends his name to | Read More »

    CONFIDENTIAL to America

    In lieu of a real post, I have a few personal messages to the people making news (or at the very least piquing my curiosity): To the nice lady I saw at the Tax Day Tea Party wearing a “Huckabee 2008″ button: As a native Arkansan, let me assure you that Huckabee is the quintessential Arkansas politician — in other words, a Baptist socialist. Bill Clinton | Read More »

    Iowa court decision may affect 2012 GOP primary

    According to the Votemaster, the recent decision by the Iowa Supreme Court striking down a state law which defines marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman, “immensely complicates” the 2012 race for the GOP…

    My Open Letter To The GOP

    (NOTE – This is my open letter to the GOP.  It was originally published last week.  After writing it I got the idea for founding the Can-Do Conservatives of America – that I talked about in the previous post…thanks to those who were nice enough to reply to that – I have since added to it and wanted to share it with y’all) I wanted | Read More »

    Can-Do Conservatives of America

    My name is Brian Donegan.  I am a 26-year old Conservative from Lawrenceville, GA.  I am very new to grassroots activism but I have always been interested in politics.  I decided to get off the sidelines and was an active volunteer for Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign.  I have been legally blind since birth and have been “blessed” with other handicaps. As I was watching the | Read More »

    Mike Huckabee for Senate

    See this line? Those are people waiting in a line that runs the length of the convention floor, turns, and wraps around of people waiting and waiting and waiting to meet Mike Huckabee and get his autograph on his book. That’d be one hell of an army of activists ready and willing to help in run for Senator from Arkansas next year. Maybe he’ll do | Read More »

    Mike Huckabee Explains the Stimulus Bill.

    Watch this video.  Mike Huckabee totally hits it out of the park when he says what the title of the stimulus/porkulus bill ought to be. Oh, and for those of you who don’t like Huckabee, I understand; however, funny is funny and right is right. Like my Daddy always says, “Even a broken clock is right twice a day” (I’m not calling Governor Huckabee a | Read More »

    Mike Huckabee Kicks Off 2012 Campaign?

    Mr. Arkansas appears to have kicked off his 2010 Presidential election campaign this week in a column in Esquire magazine.  The article is quite a flattering profile from a clearly liberal author (remind you of any recent Republican Presidential candidates?).  The author goes so far as to describe Huckabee as “the nicest guy in a political party of not-very-nice guys”.  You can read the whole | Read More »

    Blogging the Right Thing: Big Ideas Don’t Mean Big Government

    We have reached that day which Huckabee critics have dreamed about for weeks. This is the final chapter a look at the epilogue of Mike Huckabee’s “Do the Right Thing.” Huckabee states that what’s often needed for big ideas to work is not big government but for big government to get out of the way. He writes of some friends who started a company called Safe | Read More »

    Do the Right Thing: Ignore False Reviews

    Six months ago, I wrote a scathing critique of National Review’s treatment of Mike Huckabee and warned that there is media bias from those on the right. To my surprise, I found that piece was quoted by Governor Huckabee in his latest book, “Do the Right Thing.” What I shouldn’t be surprised by is that my point in June is being illustrated by media organizations | Read More »

    What’s Going On With The FairTax In Georgia (USA)?

    On November 16th, Americans for Fair Taxation (AFFT) held a FairTax event at the Gwinnett Civic Center in Georgia billed as the FairTax “Truth” Rally. Sharing the podium at the event were Ken Hoagland (AFFT Communications Director), John Oxendine (Republican, Georgia Insurance Commissioner and gubernatorial candidate), John Linder (Republican 7th District Congressman, HR-25 sponsor, and FairTax book author), Neal Boortz (conservative talk radio host and | Read More »

    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 | Read More »
