HuckabeeI see in the latest reports that Mike Huckabee scored as head of the pack in a Values Voter straw poll. Out of 597 total votes, Huckabee got 28% of the votes or 170. Next was Gov. Mitt Romney with 137. Others listed in the poll were Minn. Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Alaska’s former Governor Sarah Palin, and Indiana’s Rep. Mike Pence The poll was organized by the Family Research Council, a conservative Washington advocacy group. I know this straw poll doesn’t mean a whole lot since the next presidential election is a long ways off. But you might seriously consider Mr. Huckabee as a real candidate and one worthy of your vote. He doesn’t have a lot of financing, but will probably attract more as the presidential election nears. By the way, don’t ever confuse him as being anything like the other Governor of Arkansas who was later President of the United States. Two complete opposites!

Mike Huckabee is Mr. Nice Guy, but he is also definitely honest, forthright, kind yet strong in what he says. He means what he says and says what he means. He is a great family man and he and wife have been happily married for many years. He was Governor of Arkansas for the allowed terms before running for president the last time around. Most people did not know who he was then so he didn’t garner enough votes to get the Republican nomination. But this time around, he has a lot more name recognition. You might want to watch his show on Fox Network and see what kind of guy he is. He was quoted recently in a speech to a conservative organization, ‘Our power has never been in our pocketbooks, but in our Creator.’

He is a former Baptist minister, but not pushy about his beliefs. He is definitely one of the right wing conservatives of this nation. He believes and states strongly that he is against abortion. He believes in the one man one woman marriage. He speaks up for family rights. And he is quick to state his beliefs to anyone who asks. He does not waiver in his beliefs. He does not mince words and he does not have any gray areas to discuss. As far as I know, he has no skeletons in his closet and no affairs to discuss. He was quoted recently as saying ‘It is never right to do wrong and never wrong to do right.’

Just my kind of guy.

Keep him in mind for the next presidential election. He might just be your guy, too.
