Huckabee gave a very good speech.
1. Other people fought and sacrificed to maintain our freedom. We don't want a change that equals taking away our freedom & security.
2. America has opportunities for everyone. Work for it. Huckabee said he didn't want "to remain poor his whole life and hope for the government to bail me out".
3. What Obama is proposing has been tried behind the former "iron curtain" before, and shown to have failed.
4. Obama raises tax and kill babies. Palin kill taxes and raise babies.

Obama and McCain Tax Proposals
According to a new analysis by the Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain are both proposing tax plans that would result in cuts for most American families. Obama's plan gives the biggest cuts to those who make the least, while McCain would give the largest cuts to the very wealthy. For the approximately 147,000 families that make up the top 0.1 percent of the income scale, the difference between the two plans is stark. While McCain offers a $269,364 tax cut, Obama would raise their taxes, on average, by $701,885 - a difference of nearly $1 million.

In Huckabee's speech, he said that Republicans don't want the government to bail them out. LOL.
Unless they work on Wall street or run an airline or a bank or a large automobile company. Give me a break. Corporate socialism is the back bone of all those country club Repubs.

And the hits keep coming. The National Enquirer, which was lauded by the rightwingnuts for their Edwards reporting, has just published an article about an alleged affair of Sarah Palin, with more details supposedly coming next weeks. My, my, my. What's good for the goose...

Huckabee is articulate and populist. He has an incredible future and unlimited potential. He makes Barry Obama look like....a community orgaizer.

THIS IS SERIOUS. ALL PEOPLE CONSIDERING VOTING FOR MCCAIN SHOULD STOP AND SEE THIS VIDEO IMMEDIATELY...

PLEASE, PLEASE, EMAIL EVERYONE TO SEE THIS VIDEO BEFORE IT GETS PULLED.

IT SHOWS PALIN PRAYING AT HER CHURCH WITH HER CHILDHOOD MINISTER (AND THE NEW MINISTER) ABOUT THE END OF TIMES... HOW ALASKA WILL BE RESCUING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN REFUGEES FROM THE LOWER 48 STATES. IT'S THE END OF TIMES.

PALIN HAS NO BUSINESS GETTING NEAR OUR NUCLEAR WEAPONS WITH A NEAR TERM APOCALYPTIC VIEW OF THE WORLD, AND SHE BELIEVES ALASKA WILL SAVE OUR NATION OF REFUGEES.

PALIN IS A WACKO.

Huckabee isn't scum, he's a dork.
He's probably a pretty nice guy to get drunk with, or maybe smoke some weed with at the concert, it's just that he won't do it anywhere that other people can see.

Ok, he's a phony too, but he isn't scum.

He's hopelessly in love with his fantasies and delusions, what kind of heartless monster are you to try and take those away from him?

MCCAIN IS THE BIGGEST PERVERT ALIVE!!
McCain's first wife was a 1.Beauty Queen, no substance. He cheated on her and his children with many women while his wife was crippled and trying to recover from a bad crash.

Mccain lies abouts his age to meet another 2.Beauty Queen while cheating on his wife, files for a marriage license while married and still living with his wife and kid's.
Now McCain pick's another 3. Beauty Queen who is turning out to be the biggest bust in the World of VP choices.
WHAT IS IT WITH MCCAIN AND BEAUTY QUEENS??

LOOK AT THIS PERVERT ON YOUTUBE LOOKING AT PALIN ARSE AND SMILING!!

Huckabee really insulted working class people with his speech but then again he is republican

The RNC's red-meat riot is by far the most radically conservative, fringe,, partisan convention I have seen in my life, beating out the 2004 Bush re-election party. Oh. My. God.

Obama has it sewn up.
