Video: Huckabee on Palin’s readiness

posted at 10:45 am on August 30, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

I have always liked Mike Huckabee, even though in the end I didn’t support him in the run for the Presidency. He has a disarming manner that belies real steel underneath, and last night he proved his value to the GOP in a debate with Alan Colmes. Colmes asked Huckabee whether he really thought Sarah Palin was ready to be President on Day 1, and Huckabee gave the answer of the day:

AC: Do you believe that Sarah Palin is ready, Day One, if God forbid something happens to John McCain?

MH: I think she’s far more ready to be President if something happens to McCain than Barack Obama would be if something doesn’t happen to McCain.

Colmes tried to make the argument that McCain didn’t show leadership by making this “reactive” pick of Palin.  Huckabee laughed this off, saying that Colmes must have been invited inside McCain’s head.  However, it’s worthwhile to ask, as I did in my previous post, who really had the reacticve pick.  Obama picked Joe Biden after the Caucasus blew up and he floundered in his response, while McCain looked prepared, informed, and ready to lead.  Suddenly, Biden went from “I’m not the guy” to the running mate within 96 hours.

Would McCain have picked Palin if Obama had selected Hillary Clinton?  It may have played against the choice, only because McCain would not have wanted to appear reactive.  In this case, he has plenty of reasons for selecting Palin, mostly because of her record on reform and her executive experience, which both Democrats lack entirely.  He wanted to “shake up” the race, as ABC reported, but that’s not a reactive impulse, either.

And I find it exceedingly strange that Colmes would accuse the first Republican to name a woman as running mate of not showing “leadership”.

Googled ‘Sarah Palin religion’ when her name first surfaced and today as well.

Sarah Palin — Religion: Non-Denominational Protestant

According to http://videoinside.org/show/Sarah_Palin – More sources »

1. Sarah Palin is a true American conservative with the right to belong to any church she chooses.

2. Neither Wikipedia nor MSM bother substantiating data for public consumption.

……Excellent CC

try again later on August 30, 2008 at 12:41 PM

sorry… wanted this post on the current page:

Poptech:

Then you should at least get her bio correct…..

Sarah Palin

Poptech has it correct up to the point of Political Experience.

Then some clarification may be needed…..

Political Experience:

- Elected to Wasilla City Council… twice… against actual opponents… you know, didn’t have to have opponents eliminated from the ballot
- Elected to Mayor of Wasilla… twice… against actual opponents where she made actual executive decisions
- Chair, Alaska Conservation Commission
- President, Alaska Conference of Mayors
- Elected Governor of Alaska… where she beat the incumbent Republican governor in the primary… an actual opponent and went on to beat a previous Democrat governor… an actual opponent where she made actual executive decisions and enjoys an 80%+ approval rating
- And…. In 67 days or so, first female Vice President of the United States

Oh, did I leave out beauty queen… yep… still is. As a matter of fact, she is the very first attractive, clean, articulate white woman to run as a Republican for Vice President….

Calling Huckabee on his Mitt-bashing is not Christian-bashing. It’s calling a jerk on his jerkiness.

That said, he did well here. He looks mighty relieved Mitt wasn’t VP. Palin’s someone the party can unite behind.

sweet! A POSITIVE post about Huckabee. Thanks Ed. For real, I had been wondering if people here had a problem with Republican governors. I don’t agree with a lot of what Huckabee ran on, but he lost. I agree that Huckabee is an asset to the Republican party. But there is no need for the hatred shown toward him on this board. Thanks for the positive post Ed.

I fear I must vote Obama. But, write this down with care. As I have stated in many previous posts on HA, Senator Obama will break the record of ALL prior extremely liberal Democrat candidates and manage to lose 50 of 50.

In each of those elections where the extreme liberal lost huge, they were all WAY WAY up in the polls at this point in time. Given the current standings, he will set a new losing record.

No no conflict at all….

the GOP looks at politics as a sadly needed evil…

Look at Barry’s church and “organizing” and you’ll see a guy who conflates faith and religion in a way that would make him a Republican if it was not imbued with marxism.

The IRS would not tolerate Barry’s church’s overt political bent if it were not a minority church.

sven10077 on August 30, 2008 at 2:09 PM

Poptech,

I admit, Romney would have made a good pick. He has a lot of experience. But it would have been quite risky for McCain, in terms of votes. He apparently loses votes among Southern evangelicals (I didn’t think he would so much, but unfortunately he does), which isn’t a terrible thing (the states would have been winnable, just with reduced minorities, but the more northern ones might be put into play) but still a net loss. Nice guy, but can’t see him turning any more states red than Palin. Also, Palin inexplicably wins a fair handful of Hillaryites, fortifies and enthuses the conservative base, apparently attracts many Barrites and Paulians (Paul was reportedly mulling over Palin for veep if he won) and is probably the least offensive VP candidate to libertarians.

For Obama, it might’ve been even easier to attack Romney than Palin, what with his differences on the issues with McCain in the debates, plus his wealth. Palin’s experience issue is fairly easily answered (she’s for VPOTUS, BO’s for POTUS; BO spent 2-3 years basically voting, she’s actually ruled for 2 years, being what is basically President of Alaska, with its own Guard, veto experience, neighbour negotations, etc.)

That said, “What if he had chosen Romney?” will resound for many years to come, no matter who wins. McCain can always use his experience in his cabinet, anyway.

An t-Oibriche Criosdail on August 30, 2008 at 2:11 PM

I’d rather have Sarah Palin, a real middle-class American, who is in touch with things that we care about – like gas prices and public education – than Barak Obama who believes we care a wit about the price of Arugula.

jnelchef on August 30, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Oh don’t think this is the last we will hear from Huckabee on the subject of Mitt. He was so sure that his staying in the race bought him some respect that when it was clear that Romney was vetted and seriously considered his ego turned to destorying Romney. You can bet that desire is not met yet. Romney still lives. Huckabee has been a leader in the anti-Mormon wing of his church for many years. He will not stop.

I have always liked Mike Huckabee, even though in the end I didn’t support him in the run for the Presidency.

I like him when he’s not being a dick to Mitt Romney….There was just no reason for him to continue those underhanded cheap shots.

Huck: PRIMARY’S OVER, MAN!

But you’re right. He’s got charisma and knows how to play a crowd. When he’s not in attack dog mode, he’s likeable.

Hawkins1701 on August 30, 2008 at 2:33 PM

Okay my bitter snip about Huck is over.

I truly think this was a masterful stroke by McCain. I live in AZ and supported McCain in 2000. But he became a truly self-serving senator between then and now. So it is taking me awhile to get behind him again. But that pick was brilliant. It had purpose beyond rewarding any group of the party. Palin truly does represent a CHANGE of American politics.

My daughter asked me this morning if I thought a University of Idaho graduate in Journalism could ever really be President. She said she doesn’t have an education even as good as yours and mine. (We both graduated from “better” schools.)

Hmmm that would truly change America wouldn’t it. If the top politicians didn’t have to come from the Ivy league (or elite military). And if inate intellegence untrained by graduate school but trained instead by caring for an American family.

That is the change I am looking for! Common sense government. Built on the God given lifestyle of America.

petunia on August 30, 2008 at 2:40 PM

And I find it exceedingly strange that Colmes would accuse the first Republican to name a woman as running mate of not showing “leadership”.

I respect Colmes a lot more than the likes of, say, Bathtub Boy. (Admittedly that’s not much of a compliment.)

But this is why I still can’t stand him. Typical hyper-partisan liberal, who has to ALWAYS find something bad to say about conservatives. He can’t, for once, put it aside and say “Good choice.”

At least Colmesy doesn’t support the Fairness Doctrine, although he doesn’t think it’s aimed at destroying conservative talk radio.

I’d love to just figure out what world these people live in sometimes. It’s not the real one, that’s for sure.

–coming from a Mittens’ misogynist who would unabashedly devalue Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Non-denomination Christians, Protestants and others falling under various categories including Gentiles, apostates, Catholics and Orthodox Churches.

So I don’t care what anybody says, he was the guy that should have represented us.

Are we talking about the same guy with the sticky fingers (missing Gov. mansion furniture, on Judicial Watch’s list of 2007 MOST CORRUPT POLITICIANS, etc.); he freed over 1,000 criminals including violent felons, one who murdered shortly after his release from prison; Huck raised a son who tortured a dog to death (the Bible says “By his fruits you shall know him”; he “joked” at the NRA about a GUN POINTED AT OBAMA; Huck and his band play music about getting drunk and having sex with hookers and divorcees (Honky Tonk Woman), and the list goes on and on!

Is it THAT Huck you are referring to???!!! I thank God that he saved us from the charlatan Huck-a-me-some-money!

Shelby on August 30, 2008 at 11:09 PM

Do you even know much about Mike Huckabee?

Shelby on August 30, 2008 at 11:09 PM

That’s a silly question. I wouldn’t support him if I didn’t.

Huck and his band play (sinful) music (Honky Tonk Woman).

I don’t agree with some of the songs they play, but it doesn’t mean he’s not saved and not trying to be a good Christian. I’ll sometimes use a song or two I know is bad for effect, but it doesn’t make me a bad person. There are Christians who use bible versions I wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole, but some of them are my heroes in the faith. Ray Comfort for example. Look, Christian’s grow in their faith, meaning there may be things they are doing now that in the future they won’t be doing. So there is a difference between a phony Christian and a Christian who doesn’t know any better yet. We must be careful how we judge others.

The guy described on these threads as a CHINO (Christian In Name Only)

And who’s doing the describing? You think these threads are filled with true Bible-believing Christians? How many people survived the flood 4400 years ago? 8 people out of millions. That’s not a lot. I suspect there aren’t as many Christians leaving messages for Huckabee as you might think. These threads are filled with neocon secular Republica anti-God conservatives who have helped destroy the conservative movement in America.

He “joked” at the NRA about a GUN POINTED AT OBAMA;

This comment tells me you’re not being an honest broker here. Mike made an honest joke which didn’t go off well. That’s it. Actually, I kinda liked it. But, because people are so politically correct these days he apologized. End of story. Anybody who exploits this incident and turns it into more than it really was, is not somebody I trust to have good judgment.

“Huckabee’s Huck PAC is supporting Young against Sean Parnell, a principled conservative. I doubt that very few of the contributors to Huck PAC knew their money would end up helping Young’s re-election campaign.

“Young, who is under federal investigation for illegal gratuities and unreported gifts, is a world-class porker, infamous for his Bridge to Nowhere and hundreds of millions in other earmarks.

“Young is an essential part of the massive culture of corruption in politics that runs hand-and-glove with Big Government and is causing almost all Americans to lose confidence in Congress.”

Do you even know much about Mike Huckabee?

Shelby on August 30, 2008 at 11:09 PM
That’s a silly question. I wouldn’t support him if I didn’t.

Sorry, but I think your responses are pretty lame. Huck is an ordained minister and he’s playing music about hookers??? C’mon! What kind of minster does that? Maybe someone who is a ChINO?

The NRA “joke” that you thought was funny was rather not funny for many who actually felt it was vile and outrageous. Google “huckabee obama gun”. You will GET A MILLION HITS! This was a big deal and another example of Huck being a loose cannon (and he frets about not being vetted for VP?!).

You had no responses to the 1,000 released prisoners, the dog toruture and his being ethically-challenged. Oh well, I really don’t have much confidence in those who see Huck-a-Me-Some-Money in a favorable light.

Well, Shelby, I don’t believe he’s the way you portray him. You’ve got a “when did you stop beating your wife” approach going on here. Why should I waste my time entertaining your Huck-hating neurosis and answering every little hateful attack when they are just like Doritos: Defend away, we’ll make more. Your attacks remind me of the “Bush lied, kids died” nonsense. You started your comment with the question of whether or not Huckabee is a Christian. But you really never were in doubt about the answer in your own mind. So, think what you want. Mike is a liar and not a Christian. That’s your right. I’ve heard it before – ad nauseum. Enjoy yourself. Obviously, this is a matter judment day will settle.
