If either Clinton or Obama are elected I am going to leave the country just like
Alec Baldwin, Eddie Vedder, Pierre Salinger, and Babs vowed to do if Bush were
elected. Did I dream that or did it happen?
This election is like going to Baskin-Robbins and finding out all they have in
the freezer is Vanilla, French Vanilla, Canadian Vanilla, and Vanilla Lite.If you don't like Vanilla you don't have much of a choice.I
don't like Vanilla.
I do not care who McCain selects as his VP, I won't vote for them. Neither do I
care who wins beteween Clinton or Obama, I will not vote for either of them
either. I will vote for the only hope we have of saving our rights
and freedoms as Americans - Charles Baldwin from the Constitution party. I just
wonder how long it will take for Utahns and the rest of America to wake up and
see that neither party has the answers to our problems.
I will cast my one vote for Obama if a McCain/Huckabee ticket is the only choice
in November. I don't care who is on the ticket, there are some very tough hard
lean years ahead for this nation, and if the prophets and leaders of the Mormon
Church have it right, which I have a feeling they do...things are only going to
get worse. I recall a little verse of scripture that reads...blessed is the
nation whose God is The Lord...this nation is rapidly rejecting God as the
foundation of this nation, the resulting moral decline will only bring about
crisis after crisis, the hearts of the people grow harder and the nation grows
more evil. We now hear of Wars and rumors of war, soon we shall have natural
disasters of almost unheard of intensity. The new President who ever they are
will have to be prepared for some very hard times ahead, God help us all.Shawilli
McCain with Huckleberry? Another nightmare... It's actually us people voting
for them in the first place where they are now. We need more people to come out
and vote, not complain! Complaining doesn't get us anywhere, voting can! I
didn't care for both parties, I'd vote for third party which I've done every
four years because i knew they were troubles!
Maybe a McCain/Clinton ticket? She was a Republican once upon a time.
Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the political muddy water the
Huckster comes up with this one! You really and truly have to feel sorry for
McCain. First he has to follow the Wilting Bush by being the same and different
at the same time. Then on top of this ridiculous scenario, he has the Great
Huckster trying to be the jester to the professed straight man. Cant wait for
the movie to come out, Abbott and Costello goes to Washington!!
I agree with those who believe Utah could vote for Obama if Huckabee is on the
Republican ticket. What with McCain's mother's hatred towards Mormons together
with Huckabee's, as well as McCain's indifference, why not?
Obama/Romney? Sounds as appealing as adding raisins to your clam chowder, not to
mention making Romney the king of ALL floppers, all time. Doug's been reading
too many political thrillers.
Hucksters prey on old people. Huckabee would prey on McCain. See the
connection? Anything less than Romney on the ticket will send the
general election solidly into an Obama win!! Sad to say since I am a diehard
Hey Umm...Big picture! Pull your head out of the sand! Why would McCain need
Huckleberry Hound to win the southern bigoted states? All they need to know is
that Obama is on the ticket and the majority of low income blue collar whites
will vote for whoever is running against him.How appealing can
Huckleberry be if he is pulling 1/3rd of the "conservative christian" votes in
many states (even less in some states). Appealing?? More like
Appalling! If you didn't get a clue from his NRA wisecrack, I'm afraid you never
will. Huckacheese is about as appealing as a rabid raccoon steak marinated in
moonshine with all the fixins.
Not that I would have voted for McSame anyway, but if this happens the White
House will belong to the Dems for the next eight years.....so, let's see that it
Politicians. Now it's time brown nose the guy huh? No wonder Politics is dirty
business. The greed for power...
Is Huckleberry I mean Huckabee that anxious of power? He doesn't care how but he
wants to be in the White House? well, he can, he can be a janitor there.
With McCains age, who wouldn't want to be VP. You could get the presidency by
default knowing that you couldn't do it with the popular vote. There is not one
that I trust anymore.
Anonymous is right. We should all be united in one thing...keeping Obama OUT of
office. His socialist policies should have us all shaking in our booties. I
can't imagine how he has fooled so many people. Change for the worse is not the
kind of change we need. Plus, I like my paycheck, I don't want to part with any
more of it.
Guys, calm down. Romney is the kingmaker in this. He was the one who bowed out
of the race more or less gracefully and handed his delegates to McCain,
virtually clinching McCain's nomination and ending a primary that could easily
become as ugly and damaging to his party as the Democratic one has been.And Romney and Huck are blood enemies. No way is Romney going to sit
back and let Huck take the VP seat--even if Romney doesn't want it himself.Mike Huckabee will never be McCain's running mate. McCain's debt (and
that of the party, really) to Romney is too great.(By the way, as
long as we're talking about cross-party veeps--how about an Obama-Romney
If Huckabee is on the ticket with MaCain, I will vote for Obama. This will be
the first time I vote for a Democrat.
Who cares what Utah thinks or how it votes?
I think Utah is smarter than to vote for Obama who is an economic populist,
almost entirely socialist, like Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. But I could see Utah
turning to the Constitution Party.
I seriously see Utah voting for Obama with a McCain/Huckabee ticket.
Anyone but Huckasleaze! Everytime I see his Gomer Pyle grin on TV, I want to
jump right through the screen and sock him into outer space. I cannot stand that
man! Because he was so malicious towards the Mormons, he will divide the
country, the Republican Party, the Mormons vs. Evangelicals! Huckabee scares me.
I like many Mormons will jump the Republican ship if the Huckster is
made VP. All political polls show that the Evangelicals will vote
for whoever they are told to and so there is no need to bring in an Evangelical
to shore up the ticket.I would suggest going as far left as
reasonable if I were McCain. Obviously someone younger (not hard to do) and with
a softer tone. A Dan Quail without the Evangelism and without the stupidity.
Huckabee scares me. True, he'd unite the country against the travesty of
incompetence that is today's GOP, but why risk it? If our fellow citizens can
elect Bush twice, they could easily exercise their stupidity again.
Look up "slick" in the dictionary and you'll notice they replaced the picture of
Bill Clinton with one of Mike Huckabee. McCain loses my vote if Huckabee is his
VP. There are so many other equally uneducated people who are better qualified.
I never thought I would want Hillery, I can't stand to listen to McCain, he is a
traitor to the Republican party. But here is my logic.Obama, is so
out of touch, he would get this country in a world of trouble. They guy can't
tell who is the good guy or the bad guy, maybe because his own wife is one of
the bad guys. Obama first seemed very charming, but now he seems stupid and we
can kiss our money goodbye if he is president.McCain, he is so full
of himself, he seems to have taken over the superiority complex from Obama.
McCain will probably be not that far from Hillary in judges and the war and the
economy. McCain tells us what we want to hear and then turns around and tells
someone else what they want to hear.Hillery, I would rather have her
for four years than Obama, I really think I want to let the Republicans lose
this one and produce a candidate that we want the next time. Hillery, would not
have as much power over the democrats that Obama would, so she would not cause
as much damage.
Why not? They are both losers, because the conservatives in the Republican
Party would see no difference between them and the Democratic ticket, whatever
it may be. McCain is bad enough, but to add Huckabee would add insult to injury.
Hillary is the next President. McHuck has no chance and Obama will fall.
Although I agree with many of the above posts regarding Huck's lack of priciples
ect. People in Utah and surrounding states need to realizesome simple truths
about "their" Republican party. 1) Nationally Huckabee is very
appealing to the "Christian Conservatives" and far right wing. McCain is not
very appealing to those voters, and Huck might just "shore up the base" for him.
2) McCain does not care about Utah or most other intermountain west
states. He will win them all in November regardless of his running mate.
Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada may be competitive. But all the protestations
from Utah and Idaho will fall on deaf ears. McCain and the Republican party know
you have sold your soul and they own you.3) If you find the Huckster
so unappealing, yet he appeals to so many in your party, maybe its high time you
guys start really pay attention. The Far right tolerates the Mormons only as
long as you continue to vote for them. They will never represent you or your
ideals. Jesus Christ actually cared about his fellow man unlike the "Christian
conservatives"Please Wake Up: Vote for Obama.
John McCain is bad enough, PLEASE don't add the Huck to the ticket. No Mitt either or the Republicans could NEVER win, too many LDS haters out
Romney makes a lot more sense than Huckabee.If Huckleberry Huckabee is McCain's
choice I will be voting Libertarian.
If Huckabee is on the Republican ticket I, a fifth- generation, Mormon, Utahn
and former Republican state delegate, vote for Obama UNLESS Obama puts Hillary
on the ticket, in which case I write in Sponge Bob Square Pants and Squidward.
If McCain is smart and plays the maverick he is suppose to be he will ignore
Huckabee and take a long and serious look at Joe Liberman
I think Obama should choose Huckabee for his VP. That would make my choice easy.
I too am hoping that someday we'll have an election where I can gladly vote for
someone rather than reluctantly vote against them.
So what is new about this? Huckabee, has conspired with McCain, from the
beginning. Right now I'd have to spew chunks just to vote for McCain, which I
tenatively plan to do. But, with Huckabee on the ticket, I will vote third
Go for it! Right out of Alice in Wonderland 'Through the Looking Glass," with
McCain and Huckabee being the Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum of American politics.
Bush already acts like he's on some kind of hallucigens looking through a mirror
of his own image and making... Now all we need to make things crazier is
Twiddle Dee (McCain) and Twiddle Dum (Huckabee) doing their nifty little dance
that goes nowhere.
The only people talking about the Huckster for veep are him, his new Hollywood
agent and his pathetic cabal of religious bigots. He would be the final nail in
the Republician coffin.
Oh I definitely agree: Huckabee can "untie" the Republican base. Presidents
Clinton and Bush have basically re-christened this country the "Untied States"
of America with their divisive politics (in the case of the former) and divisive
policies (in the case of the latter). I'm voting for Obama anyway,
so I hope Huckabee does his best, if given the chance (I don't think the
Democrats will get that lucky, actually). I would never vote for such a bigot in
If Obama tabs Hillary for veep McCain might be forced to go with Shuckabee to
neutralize the Hillbilly vote.
I said there was no way I would vote for Obama, but Huckabee on the ticket means
this Republican will not vote for McCain no matter who the Democrat is on the
Huckabee came out earlier and said if Romney is chosen as the VP running mate he
would form a coalition against him. Huckabee is the biggest slime ball in the
Republican party. I can't stand him, he's a sneaky low life that has the
Christian right behind him. If he is chosen as the VP running mate I will vote
Obama and by the way I'm not a Mormon.
If McCain selects Huckabee as hi running mate we'll see almost the entire
Mountain West vote Democrat. McCain-Huckabee will further damage an already
wounded (from self-inflicted wounds) Republican Party.
Count me as another voter would completely write off McCain if Huckabee was his
running mate. I too will not dishonor my ancestors who walked the plains to the
Rocky Mountains to vote for a man who hates the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints as much as he does. I'm coming around to President Obama.
Please, don't run Mac and Cheese as the republican ticket. Less and
more solutions. Common sense over polical pandering!
To Why Not? (2:32 PM)Maybe Huckleberry will "untie" the conservative
base of the Re-Publican Party. Great Americans can only hope!But
wait! Huckleberry's comment about Obama was well received by the conservative
base of the Re-Publican Party. Maybe Huckleberry is onto something here. Just
imagine, if McCain wins and Huckleberry is the VP, we are only a heart beat away
from having Huckleberry as the President of the United States of America.Great Americans can only hope!
I have to agree regarding the poor choice we're left with. I know some think
it's throwing your vote away,(my vote, my right) but Alan Keyes and Ralph Nader
are both running and, depending on which side you like your toast buttered,
either looks more attractive than this bunch.
My vote is still for Mitt... I don't care too much for McCain. This week, he
mentioned a timeline for getting the US out of Iraq... this is the very thing
he tried to crucify Mitt about and on top of it all, HE LIED about it... The
wrong person has the nomination... pity America!Mitt is a great man
and would get my vote any day! If McCain should choose Mitt, I would be there
to work for them as hard as I could... If he does not, it is most likely that I
will write in Mitt... I would not, could not vote for the man who
said such awful things as Mr. Huckabee said about the LDS church and its
people... NEVER will I go against so many who gave so much for this gospel by
way of voting for someone with so much hate as he has in his heart... nope!
Huckabeeeeee. pukeabeeeeeee......I too would love to have someone on
the ticket I want to vote for, instead the better of TWO EVILS to choose
from....Huckabee and McCain..... hummmmm if that is the case welcome
in a democrat president.....
the democrats might take idaho, utah, and some other strong republican states if
huckagarbage is on the ticket. and the headlines will say how like obama is when
it is all said and done. sad,sad,sad, our leaders next year will be obama, reid,
and pelosi! we want mike leavitt for vp. not some polarizing weirdo. mccain is
A life-long Republican but will happily vote Dem if Huckabee is on the ticket.
Stupid comments aside, in Huckabee we have a man with an indecipherable foreign
policy and horrible records for fiscal restraint and handling the criminal
element in his own home state. It's not just one dumb comment - it's a lousy
record for years that steers me away from him.I join the chorus that
will vote DNC if Huckabee is not the ticket. I'll have to hold my nose either
way to vote this year - at least this would have the hope of knocking some sense
into the GOP.
I'm sure the AP who wrote the story would love that. Barack Obama may be our
Lets see what the Huckster has to offer McCain....still looking....still
thinking...well he did outfundraise my local girl scout troop, but not by much.
Evidently evangelicals love to open their mouths but not their wallets. Sorry
Huck McCain needs $$$ not a degree in miracles (oh yea that didn't happen
Bob Bechtel, Fox News contributor and strong apologist for Obama and Clinton, is
constantly disparaging and making fun of Mitt Romney for expressing an interest
in the Republican V.P. slot. Let's see if he treats Huckleberry the same. Both
Huckleberry and Mitt have earned the right to be seriously considered as John
McCain's running mate. A am a life-long Republican and vote in every election
but I doubt if I will vote for McCain regardless of who he chooses. I absolutely
will not vote for Bob Barr. Bechtel, the Democrat strategist, is hopeful that
his anti-Mitt rhetoric will damage him because he knows Mitt would be a strong
V.P.candidate. Bechtel thinks he is very clever, but his motives in disparaging
Romney are crystal clear.
You got that right, Huck. It won't be the last stupid thing you do. You were the
only candidate worse than McCain, and you would kill any chance McCain has. I
guarantee, you are not on his list at all.The comment was poetic
justice, though. Just give this man a little more rope, please.
I could not vote for McCain if he chooses Huckabee.
Unbelievable. Slams Romney, slams Mormons, and wants to be VP to bring the
country together. No thank you.
Huckabee is an idiot. His being on the ticket is another reason to jump ship
and go with the Democratic ticket.
Doug,The democrats haven't lost in the last four election running
against republican in states like Mississippi. Utah is very insular. Other
states lack the authoritarian leadership the pushes for one party rule that
defines politics in Utah.Outside Utah, people find it easier to
admit they where wrong. People feel it was wrong to put all their eggs in a
basket that dropped when it came to the life of the average American.I'm a vet. I never thought I would hear of my army ordering women soldiers to
watch sex acts. Then, the moral conservatives rationalized it.With
food increasing in cost, expensive gas and no health care, gay marriage seems
I will vote for John McCain only if he chooses anyone but Mike Huckabee.
Otherwise forget it.
Wow! Sounds like Huckleberry may be an even BIGGER suck-up than Romney!
Huckabee can untie the conservative base. Why should the majority of
conservatives get to vote for someone who shared their beliefs? It's democracy.
Huckabee: "It wasn't the first dumb thing I've ever said. And ... it won't be
the last dumb thing I've ever said."That's right! Saying you want to
be John McCain's VP is proof of that. As if we wanted this presidential race to
be even more ridiculous than it already is. With our current
presidential choices, my vote is going to be cast for the candidate that I think
will be least worst as president. Huckabee, the ordained Baptist minister, on
the McCain ticket drives McCain even lower into the barrel for me.
Has any other presidential campaign in history featured two men as slick as
Barry Obama and Mike Huckabee? Unlikley, I would think. They could sell ice to
an eskimo and water to a drowning man.I hope McCain makes Huckabee
his VP nominee. Then maybe a genuine conservative will be inspired to run an
I am on the fence on who I would vote for between MCain and Obama. I slightly
favor MCain right now. If MCain picks Huckabee I might vote for a Democrat for
the first time. Huckabee is exactly the type of person who I don't want to have
If McCain picks Huckabee for his running Mate; I'm voting for Obama.
If this election year could get any worse, that would do the trick. doug is right...hope McCain realizes that and makes a choice that will make it
easier to vote against either of the current dem candidates.Someday
I hope for an election year that I can vote FOR someone, instead of the best
Yes!!! Yes!!!! Yes!!!!It would solidify democrat gains all over
the country. Solid demo sweep!!!!Please, give us our wish: Huck
and John!!! Two losers.(PS Sorry Huck, McCain isn't that stupid!!!)
So Huckabee says he wants to be McCain's #2. I'll bet he would.
