Mike Huckabee: Wish I could've said I was transgender in high school, to ... - Boing Boing
"...Mike Huckabee, Josh Duggar supporter and perennial GOP Presidential nominee hopeful, gave some very creepy closing remarks at the 2015 National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville this past February. The speech was made months ago, but it's receiving new scrutiny today after Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair coming-out...." see full article

Mike Huckabee's rhetoric of religious victimization - Los Angeles Times
"...Most voters outside of Republican primaries will find these assertions less than persuasive, even paranoid, but also, perhaps, familiar. With his entry into the race, Huckabee is bringing back into the national political conversation the sounds and tropes of the religious right. Whereas the tea party, which has come to dominate the grass-roots movement, broadcasts anger, the religious right stresses victimization.Huckabee's statement in Waukee was eerily reminiscent of the sentiments I encountered among activists on the religious right in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses in 1988. At that time, Iowa's evangelicals were still relatively new to the political process, still learning the ropes. But they were already fluent in the language of ill-treatment...." see full article

This Isn't The First Time Mike Huckabee Has Sided With a Sexual Predator - National Journal
"...That might ring a bell. Today, the GOP presidential candidate is standing behind the Duggar family of Arkansas following the admission by eldest son Joshua Duggar that he molested children, including his own siblings, as a teenager. "No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story," Huckabee wrote in a Facebook post. "Good people make mistakes and do regrettable and even disgusting things."Kudos to Huckabee for embracing forgiveness, a virtue sorely lacking in public life. While I could be snarky and ask whether he still thinks homosexual couples shouldn't raise children, I don't think hypocrisy is the issue as much as judgment.Taken with the DuMond case, Huckabee's full-throated defense of the Duggars fits the pattern of a thin-skinned leader blinded by faith and opportunism...." see full article

Mike Huckabee is a raging hypocrite: Inside the religious right's incoherent ... - Salon

"...Republicans such as Huckabee and Jindal love to use their religion as a prop: They judge and preach and condemn under the cover of Christianity. And they assume this grants them a kind of moral superiority. Well, it doesn't. Huckabee and Jindal are political hucksters. They fancy themselves Christians, but their preachments are foul and their values are un-Christlike. They are exactly what many other current GOP candidates are as well: political entrepreneurs...." see full article

Drew Cline: Mike Huckabee, the Republican from the past - The Union Leader
"...Other references were implicit. He opened his speech by taking the audience back to his childhood in Hope, Ark., where he was born in 1955. The scene he set fishing, swimming, shooting BB guns recalled the opening of The Andy Griffith Show. As cultural references go, these suggest a candidate stuck in a frame of mind from a bygone time. ..." see full article

Don't Underestimate Mike Huckabee - The Federalist
"...Mike Huckabee's message is essentially a tribal one, not a coherent or consistent philosophy. It's a timid, cynical agenda wrapped in a hodge-podge of faux-populist status quo Pepperidge Farm Remembers nostalgia. It plays wonderfully with Huckabee's tribe, and decently well outside of it ..." see full article

Why Mike Huckabee won't win, but Joe Biden just might - Minneapolis Star Tribune
"...But Huckabee took a different route. Since 2008, he's spent most of his time writing books aimed at conservative readers, doing talk shows on radio and Fox News, giving well-paid speeches and endorsing survival ration kits. His campaign so far is perfectly designed to assure him a nice living doing more of the same...." see full article

A president for the tinfoil hat crowd: Mike Huckabee has his finger on America ... - Salon

"...So, no, an EMP attack isn't especially likely, despite what Mike Huckabee says. However, ramping up concern over the devastating effects of an EMP blast does mesh nicely with another of Huckabee's interests: scamming money out of the panic-stricken and the gullible. Conspiracy websites like WorldNetDaily will happily sell you an exorbitantly expensive Faraday cage, a specially made box that is supposed to resist electromagnetic radiation and protect any electronics stored within from the devastating effects of an EMP blast. Think of it as a tinfoil hat for your iPad. ..." see full article

Mike Huckabee, Anti-Reform Conservative - New York Times (blog)
"...But his apparent 2016 agenda looks like a cracked, evil-Spock mirroring of how Republicans ought to actually address that problem; an irresponsible, pandering answer to economic insecurity that will make better responses that much harder to pursue. Huckabee could have been a reformer. But instead he's decided to play the Brezhnev of the entitlement reform debate, telling seniors and not-quite-seniors, Don't talk to me about conservatism; what you have, you hold...." see full article

"...Mike Huckabee! He will bring wonderful things to the GOP race and might even make a terrific president is a statement you would, quite obviously, be totally bonkers to believe, though I am reasonably certain you do not, because, as we have established, reading things in the media or in journalism or in the form of satire in San Francisco is for elitist Obamacare sodomites who want to take away America's right to be bigoted against, or bash a Bible in the face of, people who are in any way different or smart or foreign or female or weird.

Does He Have a Prayer? Mike Huckabee Runs for President - Huffington Post

"...More importantly, however, I think Huckabee will fail because social conservatism is increasingly a spent political force. There was a time -- thirty years ago, even twenty -- when religiously-motivated social conservatives like Jerry Falwell and Ralph Reed commanded instantaneous national attention. In those days, it seemed like the energy and the enthusiasm was with them...." see full article

"...With unease over a potential Huckabee candidacy on both sides of the GOP scale and a rallying religious fervor for candidates like the far right Cruz and the virulently pro-life Walker, the former Arkansas governor, once beloved by Christian voters, will need more than just luck this time around he'll need to re-craft his strategy...." see full article

Six Times Mike Huckabee Used Bad Theology To Support His Policies - ThinkProgress

That Time Mike Huckabee's Loser Son Allegedly Tortured a Dog to Death - Jezebel

Classic Loser Son!). The story surfaced again early this year, after Huckabee made the very dumb strategic move to flap his gums about the Obamas' lax parenting because they let their teen daughters listen to Beyonc ...." see full article
