Huckabee: Stealing The Thunder

We all have marveled at the idiocy that is Donald Trump.  His comment on Hispanics and Mexicans have pissed off a whole segment of society….but the upside is the media cannot get enough of his stupidity.  And he is the front runner at this time for the GOP nomination…….and that speaks volumes about the mental capability of the GOP…..at least to me.

But while the Donald was languishing in the spotlight of fame he has been ambushed by another……a preacher with just as much stupidity as Trump……I am speaking about Huckabee.

We know that all the GOP candidates are on the same page in the opposition to the Iranian deal….but my man Huck has taken it to the extremes……..

It’s no surprise that presidential candidate Mike Huckabee isn’t happy with the recent Iran nuclear deal, but the rhetoric he used to make his point has prompted a call from the Democratic National Committee for an apology, the BBC reports. In an interview with Breitbart on Saturday, the ex-Arkansas governor called President Obama’s foreign policy “the most feckless in American history” and said the commander in chief was “naive” to think we should place our trust in Iran. But it’s what he said next that ired the DNC: Huckabee said that by striking the Iran deal, which he calls the “most idiotic thing,” Obama “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” He continued: “It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”

In a statement, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Huckabee’s comments had “no place in American politics” and that “cavalier analogies to the Holocaust are unacceptable,” per CNN. “Mike Huckabee must apologize to the Jewish community and to the American people for this grossly irresponsible statement,” she added. But Huckabee doubled down on Twitter with a graphic of his controversial quote, accompanied by the message: “Tell Congress to do their constitutional duty & reject the Obama-Kerry #IranDeal.” He also included a link to his website, where he demanded Congress not take summer vacation until it kills the “horrific, humiliating handout to Iran that threatens Israel, emboldens terrorists, and will trigger a nuclear arms race across the Middle East.” His campaign rep simply noted to CNN that “the comment speaks for itself.”

Someone had to stop Trumps meteoric rise and Huck took it upon himself…….he doubled down on the “oven” comment saying that he had been to Auschwitz three times and stood at the door of the oven….he knows what the door looks like…..seriously?  Apparently all you need to qualify as an expert in the GOP in foreign policy is the capability in recognizing a door……

But what can you expect from the brain of a Baptist preacher?  Certainly not anything rational.

For now Huck has stolen Donald’s thunder….and the god will be angered…….

Will The 2016 GOP Parade Ever End?

Today number 16 or 17 candidate will enter into the comedic parade known as the GOP dash to the nomination.  Today Ohio governor, John Kasich has jumped in and this may be the last “serious” candidate for the nomination…….I am sure there are others that want to pad their resume to gain a bigger share of the cash on the rubber chicken circuit of politics.

 Good news for Republican voters who aren’t wild about Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, George Pataki, Rick Santorum, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Donald Trump, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, or Marco Rubio: John Kasich is running for president. The second-term governor of Ohio and former congressman is returning to the Ohio State University campus in Columbus where he became an aspiring politician to announce his 2016 bid for president.

Kasich is known for his unfiltered style and policies that are not always in line with his party. Moreover, he’s been one of the few Republican contenders to resist going after the chief Democratic prospect, Hillary Clinton, or President Obama. He says if he has to trash people to win, count him out. Kasich is the 16th notable Republican to get into the race. He’s hoping his 18 years in Congress, near-decade as a Lehman Brothers managing director, and two terms as a swing-state governor will help him stand out.

Is it all in?  The next landmark in this election cycle will be the first debate on FOX…..the problem there is the way it is set up there will be only about 2 serious candidates in that debate….if anything it will be sideshow to the circus…….full of softball questions and answer that generate applause…..nothing of a serious nature will be mentioned……

I do not see Kasich generating much enthusiasm among the rank and file……he will definitely not be a fave of the Teat Party ……so what does he hope to accomplish?  A bigger paycheck on the speech circuit of conservatism……is the best he will do.

Scott Walker Wants To Run The Country. Here Is How He Ran Wisconsin. | ThinkProgress

Poor Scott Walker……he chose the wrong day to come out…….his day for massive coverage of his announcement to seek the nomination has been crapped all over by the Iran nuke deal…….poor Scott.

But of course Walker like all other governors that run for national office use his time in the state as a experience in government…….they think they can govern………. they tell us they can run the country……..NOT LIKELY!

We have heard how he fought the unions and won, his success on voting elimination, his defunding of planned parenthood etc….the problem is that does not help explain how he did for the economy or the people of his state…….

So to help Poor Scott out I have found such an article….this is how he ran his state……

One Presidential Candidate Just Promised To Wage War In 4 Different Countries | ThinkProgress

It is a well written point that I disagree with just about everything Lindsey Graham has to say on foreign policy.  I believe if he is elected president we will be in more wars that we can expertly fight.

The military is being forced to eliminate 70,000 troops because of so-called budget cuts…..but Graham is determine to have us fight war after war if he is elected……..now that we have a deal with Iran he should be one of the loudest voices of the group…….

Is this what the voters of America want for this country?  If so then by all means elect this asshat and learn to live with perpetual war.

Donald Trump: A False Flag Candidate? by Justin Raimondo — Antiwar.com

Since the headliner clown, Trump, became a candidate I have heard many people voice their opinions on his run away mouth……even some people that I consider well inform and literate have come down on his side with his Mexican comments……..these are basically the same ideas and opinions that were voiced when Cubans arrived, then the Haitians, and let us not forget the crap spread about the Vietnamese in the 70’s……..

Anyone who thinks his opinions are rational or even accrate really needs to spend more time educating themselves and less time of talk radio…….

But beyond that……what about other issues or know stuff like……foreign policy or even Iraq singularly?

He is a FALSE FLAG Candidate!

Walker in 2016–The Parade Continues

(Enter “Pretty Boy Floyd”…..stage right)

Everyone interested in politics knows that Wisconsin’s governor Scott Walker is running for the GOP nomination in 2016……but today he said it out loud and made it official…………….

In my opinion the last serious candidate to enter……..there will be others but they will be marginalized by the hand grenades thrown…….issues means nothing at this stage…..it is all about the theater……..

Our man in Madison is now a legal candidate…..I guess that could change if there is news about his legal problems….in the beginning he had a great starting position but now he is just another face in the crowd………but for now…..here he is…….

Make room, GOPers: Scott Walker is running for president. “I’m in. I’m running for president because Americans deserve a leader who will fight and win for them,” he tweeted (this time for real) today. But for the Wisconsin governor—who dropped a “barn-burner of a speech” on February’s CPAC and boasted he can take on ISIS—there are, as the Hill puts it, both “high expectations and doubts.” What could boost his run: his record in Wisconsin on cutting taxes and unemployment, his strong stance against organized labor, and the potential to win Iowa’s caucuses based on “high polling numbers and plenty of grassroots enthusiasm,” per the Hill. He’s not a shoe-in, though. “He’s clearly the frontrunner and there’s a lot of interest in him here,” a former Iowa Republican Party official tells the paper. “But he still has a lot of work to do.”

Part of that work will involve breaking away from what the Hill calls his image “as a vanilla candidate from the Midwest who lacks the ‘wow’ factor” to compete with more engaging candidates. Other issues: The Hill notes that critics will go after his foreign policy weaknesses, as well as lob accusations that he’s “flip-flopped” on immigration. He’ll also have to defend fiscal problems back in Wisconsin, adds Washington Post, including an embarrassingly late budget and financing for a new stadium for the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks—a deal that’s been called a “hot mess.” Finally, Walker may need to break from what some see as a one-platform campaign focused on unions. “You can’t run solely on your biography, and so far, he’s been almost solely focused on that,” the ex-IRP official tells the Hill.

His lack of a college degree will  most likely be a sticking point against him…….personally I think that is bullshit!  Some of the most well informed people I know are without degrees……..but it will be in his “con” column……….(Then there’s Walker’s lack of a college degree.)
