Huckabee: Letter from Japan

Posted By on Fri, Jun 20, 2008 at 10:58 AM

Mike Huckabee's blog reports on his doings in Japan -- raw fish, solar energy and all, except for Janet's thoughts on same -- but also goes into great detail to elaborate on his warning to Republicans not to demonize Barack Obama. Let there be no mistake: Mike Huckabee wants Obama beaten like a drum. Just not demonized.

I believe his ideas are totally wrong for America and many of his plans would take us the opposite direction from where I think we need to go. He is an ardent supporter for the most liberal and indefensible positions on abortion, including his refusal to support a ban on the most vile forms of all, partial birth abortion. He has stated that he would be an activist in seeking to push for what the anti-life forces euphemistically call “reproductive rights.”

His plan to raise taxes would be an economic disaster for our nation. We would lose jobs and investment and see the economy really squeeze the working class with even higher fuel and food prices.

He would implement more government control on everything from health care to small business and that’s not the right direction for us.

What I am saying is that we need to challenge Obama on the basis that his ideas are the wrong ones—not attacking him personally.

He noted Obama's middle name, former church and skin color -- all, of course, by way of saying these things are not relevant.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
