Governor Huckabee is to be on O'Reilly tonight (7:00pm CT) on Fox News to introduce the new video series for children that he is producing. It will help teach them American history in a cartoon format. Looks good.

More later...

O'Reilly just played the old video of Newt and Pelosi sitting on the couch together talking about how important it is to support global climate change efforts (a.k.a. Cap and Trade). O'Reilly had Lou Dobbs on and Lou said that the video was very harmful to Newt.

Huckabee is coming on now.

Well, what a shocker! No info about the history series. I got some wrong information.

The questioning by O'Reilly was pretty strong about gay marriage, as well as grading Obama on his presidency. Huckabee gave Obama an "F" on economic issues and a "D" overall. Now we get to hold our collective breath until tomorrow's Huckabee show for an important announcement. For once, though, Mike did not say, "I am still deciding..." when asked about running.

Well, I guess the decision really was made today. On yesterday's twitter post on Mike Huckabee.com, it still said he would discuss the history series tonight. And Gov. Huckabee did say on Cavuto's show that he had just told his family this morning!

It's interesting to compare the treatment Mike gets on O'Reilly's show to the treatment he gets on Cavuto. O'Reilly is definitely not out to make Mike look good. So instead of letting Mike talk about what's wrong with the economy, which will be the big issue in the next election, he asks Mike to define a non-economy issue where he differs from Obama. Mike's answer focused on the Obama administration's decision to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act and how this will hurt him with conservative black and hispanic voters. O'Reilly seemed skeptical and unwilling to accept that this would be factor in their voting decision. O'Reilly (as if to say, "Good luck with that!") pointed out that if Huckabee comments on that, it will confirm the general perception that he is only a niche candidate for the religious right. No doubt about it, when Mike goes on O'Reilly, he is in hostile territory.

I noticed that Bill would not allow Mike to fully complete his sentences. Pretty rude of him.

Agreed. O'Reilly's strategy:

"Everyone thinks you're just a preacher man so I'm not gonna let you talk about the economy. Now what are you gonna talk about? Huh? What?! Gay marriage?! You really think people are gonna care about social issues in this economy?!"

For all his talk about looking out for the folks and his silly culture warrior nonsense, O'Reilly's shown himself to be quite the coward when it comes to social issues. He asked his "social warriors" one night what they thought about abortion. One said something like she wouldn't have one but it's a woman's choice and the other refused to answer the question.

Social what?!

I asked my 19 year old daughter what she thought about his comments on the show. Her assessment: "He didn't let him get a word in edgewise!" Here's hoping her first presidential vote will be for Huckabee! :pray

Yes, O'Reilly was his usual self-assured self, but also rude, I thought. It is interesting to note the difference with the Cavuto interview earlier in the day. Neal could scarcely keep from bursting with enthusiasm for Huckabee.

O'Reilly must learn that it is an honor to have an accomplished man of character and ability on his show. One who is able to articulate better than almost anyone the issues that O'Reilly, the culture warrior, probably would ordinarily advance. Yet because of no small amount of arrogance O'Reilly (and we can expect others of punditry following suit) cannot resist to get his own jabs in first.

It seemed pretty obvious that Bill wanted to pick Mike apart and get him off-balance from the start. This was the first salvo against Mike's success by a well-known pundit. So O'Reilly feels he won something, I am sure.

However, I think Huckabee won clearly as a ''class act." He humbly said something about not comparing to O'Reilly's television ratings. I think and hope "the folks" will see which one is the truly great man. Huckabee showed great poise in answering questions and not being drawn into foolish argumentativeness.

Mike has talked of how difficult the effort to win is among Republicans because of the "balkinizing" of factions. Of course, O'Reilly claims to be a conservative but not a Republican. If Huckabee announces to run as President, he will not only face opposition from the left, from Obama, but sadly from fellow conservative pundits. I am praying not. I am praying they will be wiser than that.
