Blogs 4 Brownback

Huckaboom Thanks To Brownback?

President Huckabee?The recent surge in Mike Huckabee’s stock has been nothing short of phenomenal. There’s no doubt about it. Is it Divine Providence? Several months ago, Huckabee, like Senator Brownback, was considered a long shot. But that has changed dramatically.

Who could have forseen a couple of months ago that in December, Huck would be leading Mittens in Iowa a staggering 39% to 23%? Giuliani, at a meager 8%, is virtually a non-factor like nutjob Ron Paul. He’s way down where many expected Huck and Brownback to be. Incredible.

In South Carolina, another primary state, Huckabee has shot past his rivals to take the top spot. Again, totally unexpected. Unprecedented even. Just what’s going on here? Is this the hand of G-d, tipping the scales to the leader that He, in his infinite wisdom, wants to lead the free world? If so, it’s best not to argue with Him.

I think all of us at Blogs 4 Brownback knew that it was only a matter of time before Republican primary voters got serious and finally realized that the frontrunners, especially Romney and Giuliani, were unacceptable RINOs and that when the time came, they would turn to a real Christian conservative. And they have begun to do that with only a short time to the primaries. In the nick of time, as it were.

We at B4B suspected that this would benefit Sam Brownback. And it likely would have if he’d only have stayed in the race. Sadly he bowed out too early, and this has given Huckabee the lion’s share of serious and thoughtful Republican voters. If only Sam had hung on a little longer, he’d probably be surging in the polls now as well as or instead of Huck. Ah, what could have been.

Huckabee is getting more attention now, a lot of it negative, as he is being seen as a serious threat by the RINO supporters, the media and the power elite. He’s been taking a beating from political sites like Race 4 2008 and from hacks and morons like Rich Lowry. But despite a couple weeks of relentless attacks Huck continues to soar. He flies like a mighty eagle while continuing to take flak and small arms fire.

And now he’s actually starting to get more money from donors and the support of professional politicos and GOP insiders like the brilliant Republican strategist Ed Rollins. Huck may well be the nominee, thanks in part to Sam Brownback exiting the race. And I guess, for that, more power to him. At least he’s a good Christian with executive and leadership experience.

Good luck, Huck. But watch out for the coming Sam Brownback write-in campaign. We aren’t going to just let you walk away with it. But it looks like you just might pull it off. What an amazing campaign season this has been so far. I think we can all agree on that.

Have a good weekend, everybody!

Update: For those of you who don’t know who Ed Rollins is and how his joining Huckabee’s team is significant:

A veteran Republican strategist considered by many the architect of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 landslide election victory is set to take the helm of Mike Huckabee’s surging presidential bid, CNN has learned.

Update 2: In addition to leading in Iowa and South Carolina, Huckabee also leads in Florida at 27%. Will there be a Huckasweep?

Update 3: Former Republican John Cole points and laughs at a bunch of so-called Republicans wetting their collective pants in fear over the Huckaboom. Huckenfreude.

  1. I’m already on record that this site needs to become blogs4huckabee.

    I wouldn’t vote for Huckabee to save my life, and just watch, after the Feb 5 primaries, in which 22 states cast their ballots, Giuliani will have a large lead.

    Huckabee is just about as easy to parody as Brownback was, though. All we need now is for Tancredo to move up in the polls for the Holy Parody Trilogy to take hold.

    It’s a pretty sad day in American when at least 1/3 of us will be willing to vote for Brownback/Tancredo/Huckabee-type (any of the above) in a presidential election. But, of course, it won’t come to that; it’ll come down to Giuliani vs some Democrat, and 8 weeks before, another Rove smear campaign (just like Swift Boat), and Giuliani will win… And then, 8 weeks after the election, Giuliani’s people will claim they’re not responsible for whatever successful, since-discredited, Swift Boat-type attack they engineer.

    “Oops, sorry, our bad; looks like Barack doesn’t have ties to terror after all. Of course, we never claimed he did; it was these other guys. But America has spoken. God Bless America.”

    By whatever means necessary, I guess.

  3. Sad for America???!?!? How is it sad for America when one third of America wants to return to our roots as a G-d fearing republic? Only sad thing about it is that it isn’t 9 out of 10 but I chalk that up to the whole sale slaughter of babies through abortion. I can’t wait for President Brownback and VP Huckabee in the Whitehouse with King James bible as the head of the department of education and Jesus as copilot. Just imagine a world with Foreign Policy determined by Revelations. We can see peace in the Middle East in our lifetime!!! We are on brink of paradise on earth people, don’t lose faith!!!

  5. “roots as a G-d fearing republic”
    We never were a God-fearing anything to begin with, genius. The founding fathers were Deists: they believed in a higher power, but did not believe in the miracles.
    I’m tired of all these misinformed (or downright lying) Republicans claiming this country was founded on a religion when it wasn’t.

  6. Well even if Huckabee is no Sam Brownbeck at lest he’s a Christian. What I can’t believe is any Republican seriously consider some of these other candidates for the nomination for a moment. They mind as well have been nominated Hilary Kinton as the GOP candidate and forgone the pretense.

    If Jesus decides in His infinite wisdom to have no Brown-tober surprise in 2008 then a President Huckabee will would.

    So Spacebrother, why are the heathen Muslims the only ones allowed to have a facist theocracy? You know, if you were a good Christian and not a hate mongering, freedom hating, leftist dog, you would welcome a return to true American values that our Christian Forefathers had in mind when Jesus inspired them to write the Constitution. I suggest you read the bible for strength and peace of mind. I will pray for you.

    Got any evidence to support that claim, Diablo? I’d like to see it. And don’t point at a Bible; I’ve read it, and I can tell you right now that America isn’t mentioned once.
    Freedom isn’t blind faith in a system, it’s the constant questioning of everything you hold dear.
    My name is Elephant Bones, and I am a true Patriot. You Bible-belt sheeple can say what you want, but in the end, it is people like me, Arn, L, and Spacebrother who are the true face of America.

  15. Oh Elephant Bones, you have gone and proven my point completely. You say you and your friends are the true face of America? Is that so? I’m assuming that by that noble title you have given yourself and your cabal of super friends means that you believe you represent the average American? Let’s examine the typical average American shall we? The average family unit is 2.6 members with the average age of 36.6 Pretty interesting so far…. Here is the best part though, “The mass majority believe in God, more than 90% own a bible, only half can name a single gospel, and and 10% think Joan of Arc was Noah’s wife.” Feel free to google search these facts, its from “TIME” magazine. I happen to believe, and these stats prove that this “Bible-belt sheeple” happens to represent a much larger section of this country than your leftist, G-dless, using the bible for hate instead of love, Commie patootie. I’m sorry, I got angry and I didn’t mean to swear. I will pray to Baby Jesus and the Honorable Senator Brownback for you….and you fellow “True Face of America” Club.

  16. I don’t recall ever using the Bible anywhere to promote hate. In fact, whenever I quote the Bible, it’s always a passage discussing nonviolence.
    As for the facts you posted, don’t they only make yourself look bad? Thinking Joan of Arc was married to Noah, half of the people can’t name a single gospel, but almost all of them own a Bible; sounds like statistics I wouldn’t want to represent, if you ask me.
    But when I say I am part of the true face of America, I’m not referring to the people, I’m referring to the ideals this country was founded on, the idea that anyone, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual preference, etc, could come here and be free. America does not bow to the whim of any one religion, that would be a theocracy. America does not pledge allegiance to one political party, that would be fascism. America isn’t about having an unwavering devotion to the system that currently supports it, then we’d live like the people in 1984. America is about not only questioning what part of the system needs fixing, it’s having the freedom to question. When you take that freedom away, the freedom to ask “why?”, then you’ve destroyed America.

  20. Elephant Bones- I am simply pointing out that statistically I am more mainstream with my views that “it doesn’t matter if you read the bible as long as you believe in it”, than any secular “Look at me, I read an entire text, find one little phrase, use it out of context to prove my heathen point, and then sit back and receive praise from my fellow commie, leftist, secular, heathens.”
    Arn- Do you have no heroes? No one you can look to for strength and try to emulate? I pity you for not having… I guess a secular, humanist, heathen version of the Honorable Senator Brownback… What would that be? I’m guessing a trans-gender abortionist that also stars in porn? Is that whom you look to for your moral fiber? Or I guess you could aways look to Nancy Pelosi. Hey, at least she agrees that people deserve to be waterboarded for info…even a harlot can have a soft spot I guess.

  21. Yep, Diablo’s an idiot like the rest of them. Where do all these nuts come from? Is there like some mad scientist somewhere brainwashing all these people into total stupidity?

    Oh yeah, and as for that remark to EB in the last comment, in answer, I have no idea if you use the bible out of context to promote heathen ideals, you’re still new to me, but I do know that the regular Brownpackers here do that on a regular basis, they use it to promote hate, murder and genocide. And since you side with them, I’m fairly sure you’ll end up doing the same thing. Every one of them do (except for Lyssie, she’s in a class by herself here, being the only member here who actually has class)

  22. “it doesn’t matter if you read the bible as long as you believe in it”
    Whoah, that sounds like an incredibly bad idea. Why would you follow something you haven’t read? I just don’t understand it. You’re not a true member of the religion until you’ve immersed yourself into its books, its traditions, its teachings. Until then, you’re just a pathetic wannabe, too cowardly to take accountability for your own actions, so instead, you claim to work for God. You claim to know his will, but you’re just making up whatever will be convenient to your dark desires. Don’t like people who disagree with you? Say that your God wants you to smite nonbelievers. Don’t like how Jesus made it very clear he didn’t condone violence? Completely ignore what he said and put a politician on a pedestal.
    You zealots make me sick.

  26. Diablo, I went to a private Protestant church-school throughout my elementary years. Despite seriously outdated information in some of their textbooks (not the school’s fault, only Beka’s) they did have an excellent Bible class in which I learned much about the Faith. One thing I’ve learned is that when you have true faith, it shows through your actions. And as stated in Proverbs 20:11, one’s actions indicate one’s character to others. And of course, one’s actions toward the poor and the unloved are an excellent sign of their faith. (Sisyphus, Psycheout, read that verse very carefully, please!)

    Don’t lump me in with the idiots who thought St. Joan of Arc was Noah’s wife. I care about Church history, and I am currently reading through the Bible. (I’m up to Sirach, so far.) I’m not an Easter-Christmas Christian either–I attend Mass weekly, and have for years. I do not judge people by their appearances or their incomes, because those things can change easily and without warning. I do not judge by one’s professed faith, for not all who cry “Lord, Lord!” will be saved. I judge by actions, because actions rarely lie.

    “America does not bow to the whim of any one religion, that would be a theocracy. America does not pledge allegiance to one political party, that would be fascism. America isn’t about having an unwavering devotion to the system that currently supports it, then we’d live like the people in 1984.

When you take that freedom away, the freedom to ask “why?”, then you’ve destroyed America.”

    *applause* Spoken like a true Patriot, EB. Jefferson is looking down and smiling.

    And the “not peace, but a sword” statement more than likely means that Christ knew His teachings would not be accepted. Any other interpretation runs the risk of contradicting other words of Christ, such as the Beatitudes and the least-followed teaching of Christ in the entire Gospel.

  30. Well, here’s the context of the quote. Jesus has just named his apostles and gave them the power to heal the sick, etc.
    “So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny[d]? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
    Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.
    Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn
    ‘a man against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
    a daughter-in-law against her motherinlaw—
    a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’
    Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
    He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who sent me. Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man’s reward. And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.”

    As you can see, the passage takes a different meaning when put in context. Jesus is referring to how one’s faith must be above one’s love for your family.

    Acts 10:36 – You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.

    Care to try again, Bob?
