That Parrot Shoulda Spoke Up

Ray Stevens was on Huckabee last night to revive his great song which you can see over in featured video … “If 10% is good enough for Jesus, it oughta be good enough for Uncle Sam”.

But before you watch the video … listen to his story about the parrot … then … call your congressperson … the list is here.

By the way … here’s the link to Ray’s site.

Everyone is Reagan – but we just want a Conservative

Jed Babbin writing for HumanEvents.com. (My emphasis added and the full article is here.)

Tomorrow, both McCain and Romney will address the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC. (Huckabee will appear on Saturday morning). The speech McCain will give could be the best opportunity McCain will have to reach out to conservatives and bring them into the fold before the September 1-4 St. Paul, Minnesota Republican convention.

One source told me last night that McCain is planning an all-out push at CPAC. At 3 pm tomorrow, McCain is scheduled to address the crowd expected to number over 6,000 activists. And McCain plans a very special introduction.

According to my source, McCain has prepared a video featuring President Ronald Reagan to make the introduction. If McCain uses this video, it is very likely to backfire badly. This is the group before which Ronald Reagan said in 1975 that, “A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency or simply to swell its numbers.”

Stop this. Just please stop all of this talk about Reagan.

McCain, Romney and Huckabee, all taking their turns comparing themselves to Reagan is flat out annoying. We are not looking for another Reagan, simply a conservative.

Huckabee on Illegal Aliens – As of Today…

I really do not like politicians. They never seem to give you a straight answer, and if you are part of Clinton Inc., the standard operating procedure on any issue is to wet your finger and stick it up in the air. If you’re in Alabama, the answer to a question is yes; in Wyoming, it’s “maybe, but not really.” Nice.

The Washington Times, generally considered to be a conservative-leaning publication, has posted an article entitled Huckabee Vows to Send All Illegal Aliens Home. Mike, don’t mind me, but I don’t believe you. Stephen Dinan writes:

TIGERVILLE, S.C. — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee yesterday continued to move to the right on immigration during this year’s presidential campaign, signing a pledge to enforce immigration laws and to make all illegal aliens go home.

The pledge, offered by immigration control advocacy group Numbers USA, commits Mr. Huckabee to oppose a new path to citizenship for current illegal aliens and to cut the number of illegal aliens already in the country through attrition by law enforcement — something Mr. Huckabee said he will achieve through his nine-point immigration plan.

Mr. Huckabee signed the pledge in South Carolina, whose Saturday Republican primary is shaping up as the most important contest so far. Unlike the previous primaries and caucuses, which have been contested usually by just two candidates, four Republicans are making all-out efforts here: Mr. Huckabee, former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona and former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.

Malkin has all the info on his past actions. Right, what he did, not what he said.

Huckabee’s Cross to Bear?

I’ve had enough of Howie Carr, Peggy Noonan and other columnists and radio personalities going absolutely nuts over – what they perceived after they were told about it – a floating cross during his Christmas TV spot.

It. Was. A. Bookcase.

Everyone admits that they did not see it the first or second time they watched the spot. But once someone asks if you’ve seen that floating cross, you take another look and sure enough, you see it.  Then, it’s the talk of the blogosphere and talk radio. Come on folks.

It. Was. A. Bookcase.

I enjoy listening to Howie on the way home but he’s got to give it up; there are many other issues that conservative would like to discuss when it comes to Huckabee including immigration, taxes and pardons.
