Why We Like Mike!

Here are some comments taken from Mike Huckabee’s blog section called “Why Do You Like Mike”  This blog post has generated over 300 comments by Huckabee supporters, not just ones that say they will vote for him, but ones who have actually contributed to his campaign!

A side note Here, Huckabee is up to 13% in the latest Rasmussen Poll, tied with John McCain and still a point ahead of Romney!

Gardner, Jesse 10/27/2007 11:00 PM

  • I think one of the most important reasons I like Mike is because he is a gifted communicator. I know, that sounds trite; but if you cannot express your ideas clearly, you cannot get people to share your vision. And if you can’t effectively interact with other people, they’ll never respect you. I don’t just want a candidate that believes in conservative principles, I want a candidate whose contagious charisma and impenetrable logic wins hearts and minds over to conservatism. And not only is Huckabee is a gifted speaker, but he’s also been governor with a Democrat majority and still managed to get a lot done.

    I like him because he is a true conservative. He is Pro-life, he is pro-family, he is pro-homeschooling! He supports a constitutional ammendment on marriage. He wants to end our energy and food dependence on other countries and he wants to get it done in 10 years not 30. He believes americans have the right to keep and bear arms!. He believes we should be good stewards of the earth, which is what the bible tells us. he does not believe in evolution, instead he believes God Created the earth! He is for the Fair Tax. He is very Likeable and Funny. He is compassionate. He understands our health crisis in America! He reaches 0ut to independents and he is the best chance for republicans to beat Hillary, even the democrats know that!

    like Mike because he is a servant of the people. He does not allow his policies to be influenced by the extremities of party politics.

    If serving the people means being more ‘compassionate’ than the party elites would like, he does it. If preserving our planet for future generations means being perceived as ‘too liberal’ he is prepared to pay the cost.

    Of all the candidates running, Mike is the only one I trust to remember who the real boss is, the PEOPLE, not the party or the lobbyists for special interest groups.

    This is the first time I have ever supported a candidate for president financially, and it has been my honor to do so.

    I lived in Arkansas for three years between 1996 and 1999. I was able to see firsthand how this man of faith was able to interject a Christian worldview into the Arkansas political process, and permanently change the direction of the state with real and meaningful reform. As a current resident of the state California, I believe that I am even more convinced of the need for men of faith like Mike Huckabee to enter political office.

    I have been a Fair Tax supporter since before Neil Boortz first mentioned it on his radio show, and when I heard that a Candidate was running with it I got excited, not because I thought this candidate stood a chance of getting elected but because he would bring Fair Tax to the campaign trail and help spread the word. Then I watched as Mike Huckabee did well on the debates so I read his foreign policy speech and his opinion on other issues too and I liked them all but I didn’t start donating to his campaign until the day of the Values Voters speech in Florida. That was the moment I knew that he is more than a disposable vehicle to spread the word about Fair Tax, he is the freight train will be the President and see the Fair Tax pass.

    Governor Hucakabee has shown time and time again that he is able to slay goliaths, both personally and politically. These giants included: coming from a blue collar Arkansas family and attending college and graduate school, deciding to run for state office, fighting a liberal Arkansas legislature, and fighting his own battle with diabetes.

    What we need at the helm of this nation is a man who is not afraid to be on the Lord’s side by sharing His common grace to the free world. There is an unrealized thirst in the Western world for a return to men who stand on real principles, and not simply political whims. For all of these reasons, I can not bear the thought of any of those other guys as president.

    For the good of the country, we need Mike Huckabee!

    GO, MIKE, GO!!!

    I didn’t have a lot to give but I gave what I could because Mike Huckabee represents the best hope for a fresh start and a clean break from the past. Mike’s honesty, commitment and bold ideas convinced me he is uniquely prepared to use the Presidency to serve all Americans.

  • Goss, Carrie

    I just heard about Mike on the Tuesday after the Values Voter Summit, and since that day my life has been filled with optimism! I am actually excited about the upcoming election now! I have never donated to a politician until now. I have spent hours reading about what he has to say and watching his interviews and speaches. He is absolutely the man we need in the White House in 2008! Pray for Mike, and for our country!

  • Gillis, Bethany

    My donation to Mike Huckabee was the first campaign donation that I had ever made. I like Mike not only because of his stand on issues that are dear to me, but also because he is so incredibly genuine. I believe every word that comes out of his mouth, and that is usually hard to say about a politician! I appreciate Mike’s conservatism, consistency, confidence, and just as importantly, his compassion. I believe he is the best man to lead our country at this very crucial time. All of these are reasons why I gave and will continue to do so throughout his journey to Presidency!

    I support Governor Huckabee because he has the vision and the heart to inspire this nation. Governor Huckabee connects with average Americans in a way that has been lacking in our political leaders for a long time. Mike Huckabee knows what he believes, and believes it with all of his heart. He has a clear vision of optimism that will take this nation forward. Americans today are disheartend. Many have lost faith in our Government and are nervous about what lies ahead for this country. Mike Huckabee is exactly the kind of man we need as president in these trying times. I had been supporting Rudy Giuliani since before he even announced, but over time I began listening to Mike Huckabee. The reason he won my support is simple. He inspired me, and he made me believe again.

    I was beginning to feel that I’d have to sit this election out. I was pleasantly surprised to learn about Mike Huckabee only last week.

    While others argue about who’s more conservative, Huckabee stands on his record. Let’s vote for someone who’s moral compass is calibrated by the King of Kings.

    I’ll be making my first ever political contribution to the Huckabee campaign by the end of this month. Join me in supporting Mike Huckabee for President of the United States of America!

    Mike Huckabee is the right guy for the right time!

    Polarizing party politics in Washington DC has left a multitude of critical issues facing this country and its people unresolved. People have become apathetic and sour towards their government because they no longer feel it is representing them. Elected officials have become too beholding to the wealth and power within their party and have forgotten who they are supposed to represent.

    Mike Huckabee is a refreshing change from all the politics-as-usual candidates. He is a Republican that Independents and even Democrats can like! His message and vision for this country resonates well, especially with middle class Americans who have been poorly served by their elected officials for the past several years.

    I am looking for a President that is a true leader with a vision for the future and an ability to get results. One that has ethics, integrity, intelligence and the courage to do
    what’s right. I believe that person is Mike Huckabee! I am looking forward to calling him President Huckabee after the 2008 election!

    Huckabee’s Rebutal to John Fund’s Article in The Wall Street Journal

    News Release: Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee Responds to Wall Street Journal Column
    October 26, 2007

    Little Rock, AR – Presidential Candidate and Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wrote the following letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal in response to Friday’s column by John Fund:

    To the Editor:

    John Fund’s view of my ten-and-a-half-year record as governor of Arkansas and my vision for America’s future (“Another Man from Hope, Who is Mike Huckabee?”) calls for me to set the record straight.

    It’s important to note that every living Republican in Arkansas who has been elected to either a statewide or a federal office has endorsed my candidacy. I’m grateful for their support and proud that in 1998, I received the largest percentage of votes ever received by a Republican gubernatorial nominee in Arkansas, and that Arkansans re-elected me to another four-year term in November 2002.

    I am even prouder that, throughout my tenure as governor and lieutenant governor of Arkansas, I campaigned tirelessly for countless Republican candidates for the state house and federal office – and even helped get some elected.

    As governor, I pushed through the Arkansas Legislature the first major, broad-based tax cuts in state history — a $90 million tax relief package for Arkansas families; led efforts to establish a Property Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights; and created a welfare reform program that reduced the welfare rolls in the state by almost 50 percent. We also doubled the standard deduction to $2,000 for single taxpayers and $4,000 for those who are married. In total, I led the fight to cut taxes and fees over 90 times during my ten-and-a-half years as governor, saving the people of Arkansas almost $380 million. When I left office, Arkansas had over $800 million in state surplus.

    One of my proudest achievements as governor was signing legislation creating ARKids First – creating health insurance coverage for more than 70,000 Arkansas children who otherwise might have gone without. I am firmly committed to finding a way to provide health care and a better education for America’s children, who hold the key to our nation’s future. Unfortunately, there seems to be a serious misunderstanding about my SCHIP comment at a recent presidential debate.

    I was not criticizing President Bush’s veto as a matter of policy, but as a matter of politics. I fully believe that Bush should have negotiated a compromise and not let it get to the point of a veto. Bush indicated he was willing to spend more than the $5 billion he originally proposed, but less than the $35 billion the Democrats pushed through, so there was clearly room to negotiate. In no way do I support spending an additional $35 billion, or moving two million children from private insurance to government insurance, or letting SCHIP be a step on the path to socialized medicine.

    I believe that we must be good stewards of our environment and support many paths to reducing our emission of greenhouse gases, such as more nuclear power and alternative sources of clean energy. As part of our overall effort, I also support a cap and trade system, which has worked well for reduction of sulphur dioxide emissions. However, I do not agree with those who want all allowances to be auctioned off because I believe that will create too great a burden on businesses. The alternative to cap and trade is a carbon tax, which I don’t support.

    It is difficult to fully understand the institutional challenges of a Republican running for office in Arkansas. In 1993, when I was elected lieutenant governor, I was the fourth Republican to be elected to statewide office since Reconstruction. Students of Arkansas politics should talk to former U.S. Senator Tim Hutchinson, U.S. Rep. John Boozman or former Rep. Jay Dickey, all of whom support my candidacy for president, but none of whom is cited in Fund’s column, about these challenges.

    Nevertheless, running for election and re-election, and more importantly, governing in an overwhelmingly Democratic state, prepared me to climb that next mountain: running for president and leading America with an optimistic vision and solid plans to successfully confront the complex challenges we face today.
