Huckabee in Macon

Here is coverage. He got a crowd of about 700 to the city. And he also got off a great line about Romney.

“If anybody needs to go out of business, it wouldn’t be me, it would be Romney,” Huckabee said.

    For those of you who may be curious as to why Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Laura Ingram and Glenn Beck are so strongly against Governor Mike Huckabee and so pro Mitt Romney, here is a little information you may find interesting to know.

    Mitt Romney owns the Bain Corporation, which owns Clear Channel Communications. You may now be asking why that is so shocking. Well, that by itself isn’t; however, when you add in the fact that Sean, Fox News, Rush, Laura and Glenn all have large contracts with Clear Channel Communications, it all becomes clear. Mitt Romney is in effect, their boss/owner. Because of that, they will go to any lengths and say whatever it takes, including falsifying polls, to get Mitt Romney elected. If you like, I’m sure you can verify all this for yourself by doing a short internet search.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know so while you are listening to any of these folks on the radio and/or TV and they want to either bash or ignore Governor Huckabee, you will know why. Please do not let the media tell you who you should vote for. Find out all you can about each of the candidates and make up your on mind.

    GOPeach — If this is an example of the anaytical power of Hucakbee supporters it explains A GREAT DEAL.

    1)Mitt Romney does NOT own Bain.
    2) Bain does NOT own Clear Channel.
    3) Laura Ingraham is NOT on Clear Channel.

    If you would research things instead of believing what you hear, you would not make such a fool of yourself.

    If you spent 1 hour researching the REAL Mike Huckabee, you would not support him.

    Mike Huckabee is not a serious man. Mike Huckabee spent many years fighting the conservatives in Arkansas. Mike Huckabee has a dirty mouth and mind and is totally devoid of class.

    Mike Huckabee is getting less than 10% of the non-evangelical vote in the primaries. He is getting beating in the evangelical vote in many states.

    Mike Huckabee cannot win and HE KNOWS IT.
    Mike Huckaebee is a stalking horse for McCain and therefore is putting HIS ambition above the good of Conservatives, Republicans and the country.

  3. GOPeach says:

    MACON, GA. — Mike Huckabee unleashed his harshest criticism to date of Mitt Romney today, calling him “arrogant and presumptuous” to think that he’s taking votes away from Romney.

    “How presumptuous and arrogant must a man be to assume that if I did drop out of the race that the people who voted for me would vote for him?” Huckabee asked at a rally in Macon.

    “I’m going to tell u something, there is one of us who grew up in the South like you. One of us who understands how to cook grits, and fry catfish, and who didn’t have to be taught which end of a rifle to point, when you point at a white tail deer,” Huckabee said in one of the few Super Tuesday states where he’s running second in the polls. “We got candidate who says he’s a lifelong hunter but never had a hunting license – we call that a poacher where I come from.”

    “And I want to say something to Mitt Romney: Mitt the people that support me support me because they know where I stand on the issue of human life, they don’t know where you stand,” he said, referring to Romney’s recent conversion to a public anti-abortion rights stance.

    “People who support me know that I support the Second Amendment and, in fact, was the first sitting governor in America to have a concealed carry permit, as was my wife. And I’m not confused about the fact that the Second Amendment is not about hunting it’s about freedom, it’s about protecting ourselves, our families and our property and nobody has the right to infringe upon that. People are supporting me because they know that I am not confused about the meaning of marriage and they know that I am not confused about whether or not the future of this country ought to belong to hard working people who drive truck and who lift heavy things and who get their hands dirty everyday and if our country doesn’t work for folks like that it doesn’t work anybody.”

    “Mr. Romney has spent about $100 million [$87.6 million, actually] to have basically the same number of delegates as I have and I’ve spent about $7 million. You know with the business background he has, you’d think by this point with his Harvard-educated MBA, he’d come to the conclusion that he’s not selling his soap very well if it takes that kind of money to have no more market share than I’ve got for about a fifteenth of the expenditure. So I’ve got a suggestion, Mr. Romney, rather than Mitt drop out, why don’t you give it up and go back to Boston!”

    “I want to make real sure that he understands something. This old Arkansas boy is not for sale. He doesn’t have enough money to buy me. I’m not some troubled company that he can buy, sell off the assets and send us home. There’s a whole lot of people like me in this country who are tired of people waving their checkbooks at us and making us think they own us and they can buys us. Well you can’t buy us, you can’t even rent us. We’re not for sale. We’re going to the polls Tuesday and we’re going to show America this country is about ordinary people who believe in the extraordinary power of the American dream and we’re going to prove it at the ballot box Tuesday.”

    Mitt Romney won Michigan, Wyoming, Maine and Nevada.
    Mitt Romney came in second in Iowa, New Hampshire and Florida.

    Mike Huckabee won Iowa. He came in second in South Carolina.
    He was third or worse in all other states.

    The current delegate count is:
    McCain 97
    Romney 92
    Huckabee 29

    Mike Huckabee is not fooling people who are THINKING during this election cycle. He is McCain’s Mini-Me and says nothing of substance, just trash talks about Mitt Romney.

    Mike Huckabee will NEVER win the nomination and will NEVER win the job of POTUS.

    It is too bad that people are not taking this election seriously enough to look at the candidates, the issues and the competition seriously.

    But at least you all can stay in the Holiday Inn Express.

    Wow that is true.
    Do a web search of “bain clear channel romney”,
    you’ll get a mix of stories.
    He’s not a direct owner,
    May not explain the talk show host kiss up,
    but still some disclosure from these hosts would be helpful.
    I have not even heard this on a show like Reliable Sources with Howard Kurtz

  6. Simple Facts about the race:
    McCain voted to give illegals social security. He routinely cusses out his fellow senators. He imploded last time he ran and nearly bankrupted his campaign this time. How can he be trusted with a budget.

    Romney has held every position that there is to be taken and then reversed it. The Dems are praying that he gets the nom. He cannot win in the South. He IS the old establishment. America will not accept that in November.

    If McCain is nominated he will split votes with his politcal twin Bloomberg and give the win to the Dem.

    America wants change. Grumpy or elitest candidates will not cut it in the general election. Huckabee appears to be the only option. He is more conservative than the other two and has some charm. The Dems will nominate a Senator obviously and you do not want to run a senator against another senator. We need a Governor.

    Hey, Peach I thought you said Herman Cain was for Huckabee..

    http://www.ajc.com/opinion/content/opinion/stories/2008/02/01/cain_0203.html

    WHY I’M VOTING FOR …

    Romney has the leadership qualities United States needs

    By HERMAN CAIN

    Published on: 02/03/08

    The dynamics of political party connections, the political process itself and public perceptions have once again yielded the top two contenders of each major party in the 2008 presidential race. And once again, the public can only hope that the ultimate winner of the White House will be a candidate with the most leadership substance.

    My vote is for Mitt Romney.

  8. debbie0040 says:

    Peach, They support Romney because he is both a fiscal and social conservative and Huckabee and McCain are not.

    What is the reason Coulter, Will, Sowell, Phyllis Shafley, Noonan don’t like Mike?

    You also left off the fact Neal Boortz’s radio show is on the same radio station as Sean Hannity’s is and Neal likes Huckabee.

    Romney can stop McCain, Huckabee is just angling to be McCain’s VP…

  9. GOPeach says:

    HERMAN CAIN just got NOW SWITCHED THEN!! I am R E A L L Y shocked. I guess MITT FLOPP made a back room deal and HERMAN CAVED!!!!! TOO BAD!!!!

    OH WELL…. such is politics!

    ROMNEY is a CONSERVATIVE – TODAY ….
    ON FEB 6th …. BACK to BOSTON – GAY MARRIAGE MASS.

    RoMONEY is a JOKE!

  10. GOPeach says:

    I spoke with the COBB COUNTY CHAIRWOMAN for HUCKABEE yesterday who was with MIKE and she said MIKE HUCKABEE HAS NO INTENTION BEING V.P.

    THAT is ANOTHER LIE from MORMON BISHOP MITT FLOP ROMONEY…. What a Joke!!!!

    STOP SPREADING LIES about Gov. Huckabee!!!

  11. GOPeach says:

    Herman Cain must have supported Mitt Flop to send a KISS MY FANNY message to IKY – ISAKSON….. I get it now!!!!

    Well …. that works for me!

  12. debbie0040 says:

    Peach, now I guess you will start blasting Herman Cain because he supported Romney not Huckabee..

    Peach, it is not Romney that is spreading rumors of Huckabee trying to be VP. The press is spreading the rumors and so are others…

    Here is an excerpt of an email that was sent out by Rep. Allen Peake:

    Maurice Atkinson // Feb 3, 2008 at 11:45 am

    TO THE PEAKE SUPPORT TEAM

    But political realities also come in to play. The fact of the matter is that it would take a miracle for Huckabee to win the nomination. But he clearly represents the evangelical, conservative base of the Republican party, I believe, better than either McCain or Romney.

    Thus the dilemma. So I will tell you where I am, for what’s it worth. I am going to vote for and support Mike Huckabee. Even though he may not win the nomination, if he wins enough delegates, it will allow the consistent conservative voice of the party to heard and felt at the Republican Convention, where the Republican party platform will be determined. I believe that it will also push Huckabee as a viable Vice Presidential candidate, which will significantly help the ticket in November.

    Friends of ALIPAC,

    Standard reminder that ALIPAC is not endorsing any Presidential candidate and our focus is on warning the public about the pro-amnesty candidates, who are all of the Democrats and GOP candidates McCain and Huckabee.

    We have to put that text into every email because we get so many false accusations that we are supporting this candidate or that.

    While both Mitt Romney and Ron Paul remain on our No Amnesty list at ALIPAC, we are quite aware that voters in America who support anti-Amnesty Ron Paul and Secret-Amnesty Mike Huckabee are looking at the Mitt Romney campaign this weekend because they fear what DC insider John McCain will do to this nation.

    We ask our supporters who favor Ron Paul to realize that ALIPAC did not create this situation, we are merely describing what we are seeing out there.

    At the time of this e-mail alert, many of our activists across America are working feverishly to get our “McClintObama Amnesty” article out to the nation. Since this article warns voters about both McCain and Huckster, both Paul and Romney are beneficiaries of our efforts.

    McClintObama Amnesty Plan: 20 million illegal alien voters by 2010
    http://www.alipac.us/article-2920-thread-1-0.html

    We have been receiving some repetitive questions and posts about the Mitt Romney campaign. We have done some homework and would like to share this information with you all.

    Item 1:

    Despite numerous accusations, our researchers can find no evidence that Mitt Romney is currently, or was ever in the CFR or Council on Foreign Relations. Many of our supporters are very concerned about the CFR, since the CFR is a major force behind the push for a “North American Community”, which some call the NAU (North American Union).

    While Romney did do a foreign policy speech to the CFR, we can find no record of him being with the CFR, yet online activists who favor other candidates are making this claim on a regular basis.

    You can view our discussion on this at this link….
    http://www.alipac.us/ftopict-101294.html

    Item 2:

    There are many accusations that Mitt Romney will support Amnesty like the others. What we do know is that Mitt Romney has been one of the most fervent candidates stating opposition to Amnesty. So much so, it is now confirmed that the Bush administration is working against Mitt Romney behind the scenes and specifically in response to Romney’s tough stance on immigration.

    Article: Bush opposes Romney
    http://www.alipac.us/ftopict-101590.html

    In fact Romney has stated publicly that he opposes the CFR and US Chamber of Commerce’s desire for a North American Community.

    http://www.alipac.us/ftopict-101625.html

    Item 3:

    In a signal to our movement of his support, Mitt Romney just secured the endorsement of Dr. Chris Kobach. Kobach will now serve as an advisory to Romney on immigration matters. Chris Kobach is a famous personality in our movement. He has headed up lawsuits in Kansas against in-state tuition for illegal aliens and is head of the legal team defending the anti-illegal immigration ordinances passed by Historic Hazleton, PA.

    In fairness, Ron Paul has secured the endorsements of over 35 groups and activists in our movement, mostly in Southern CA, but to our knowledge the Paul campaign has not placed anyone officially on his campaign.

    We did receive good news from the Paul campaign that Ron Paul does plan to sign the NumbersUSA “No Amnesty” pledge, but that has not taken place yet, and we have asked to be advised of when it will happen.

    All ALIPAC Activists are quite capable of making up their own minds on what is best and who they support.

    We are doing all we can to maintain balance and to respect everyone’s opinions about this race.

    We must advise you all that should John McCain win on Tuesday, we can expect many months of gloating from our opposition and they will shout from every rooftop that the McCain victory is a public mandate for Amnesty, and a sign that the immigration enforcement movement is a loud minority outside of the mainstream.

    That will be the fallout for us from a McCain Primary win. Hope and work for the best, but prepare for the worst.

    Good God almighty, GOPeach… could you PLEASE take up a hobby or find some sort of social outlet in the real world? I can’t even read a thread once you take interest in it.

    The anti illegal immigration groups are sending out emails in order to try to stop McCain. They don’t think very highly of Huckabee either.

    ” Mitt Romney is in effect, their boss/owner.”

    Yes and the Cox’s were always so successful in directing Neil Boortz.

  17. juliobarrios says:

    Ever notice how Huckabee never says anything negative about McCain. I’m starting to wonder if a deal has been cut to encourage Huckabee to stay in through Super Tuesday. Possibly even Vice-President.

  18. debbie0040 says:

    No desparation, just putting out the facts. The anti illegal immigration groups have said they would not support McCain if he were the GOP nominee. They will vote third party.

    I did not mean to post that email twice. There was a gliche when I hit the post button. It went to a page could not be displayed page so I thought I needed to post again.

  19. GOPeach says:

    Steve & Tommy –

    You are in a bad mood because RON PAUL is loosing and you all gave him so much $$$$$$.

    You should have known better. I did.

  20. GOPeach says:

    Don’t be fooled by what Mitt Romney is saying… a vote for Huckabee is not a vote for McCain — rather, a vote for Huckabee is a vote for Huckabee!

  21. GOPeach says:

    A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE IS A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE!

    A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE IS A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE!

    A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE IS A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE!

    A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE IS A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE!

    A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE IS A VOTE FOR HUCKABEE!

  22. Tommy_a2b says:

    No, I am in a bad mood because I have to wade through all your crazy rants. I gave no money to Dr Paul but I would if I thought it would help defeat the Huckleberry.

    Ban Peach Please!! Are the Peach Pundit gods out there?

  23. GOPeach says:

    That was a joke Tommy – not a rant –
    Please do not go whining ….

    “Ban Peach – she is ranting… I have to wade..”

    Well wade and shut up about it or start your own flippin blog! ( love ya Tommy) .

  24. rugby fan says:

    I believe he does have his own blog.

    Anyone know what will happen if I vote for Huckabee?

    Peach: Not sure why you aren’t in a bad mood. You have spent so much energy annoying the Peach Pundit community on behalf of the Huckster only to see him languish in a distant third place.

  25. Romegaguy says:

    Tommy after tomorrow she will be sharing a room with Brittney Spears and we wont have to worry about her crazy rants…
