Quote:
Politico's Mike Allen's playbook-Obama advisers expect to incorporate the reelection campaign around March and think the Tea Party ultimately will reelect him by pulling Republican nominee to the right. They doubt Sarah Palin will run, figure Mitt Romney can’t get nomination because of his Massachusetts health care program and guess that Obama may end up running against Mike Huckabee.

I'll be interesting to read the whole piece on Sunday. Is this a case of public posturing or private concern?

If it's the latter, the irony is that top Democratic bigwigs give Huck a better shot than Republicans.


Thought that part was interesting. Obama recognizes that Huck connects, that's scary to him (Obama). Also, the Republican elites just keep discounting/ignoring Huck. They just will not see what they have right in front of their face!

This could be big and gain a lot of traction. Truthfully bigger than a lot of news about Mike. We'll have to see if the media picks it up though and rolls with it.

Wondering if this'll make Drudge. That could be a springboard to make this big.

When I was talking to another Huckabee supporter about big news for Huckabee (actually we were talking about if Huckabee would come to Iowa soon) I said that it would be a 2012 media bonanza for him. My friend replied, "Yeah, but FNC would still try to downplay it by talking about it with a video of Palin and Dick Morris making a snowman in Alaska playing behind them."

ROTFL!!!!!

Yes it did and and it sounds like there will be more to come. Like you all have been saying, this could be BIG.

Here's a link to the NPR blog discussing the article http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics ... and-it-won

I laughed at the last sentence of the NPR blog -
Quote:
Again, a piece worth reading that will likely be widely discussed.

I went over to Politico.com and there are no comments about Huckabee (except mine). We need people to go over and comment.

Thanks.

Whatever.....
Quote:
Howard Fineman appeared on "Hardball" Wednesday to weigh in on The New York Times' interview with President Obama and the paper's look at his time in office.

White House aides told Times reporter Peter Baker that they believe in 2012 former Arkansas Governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee -- not Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney -- will be the Republican nominee.

Howard praised Baker's piece, but panned any analysts that pegs Huckabee, a "regional" candidate, as Obama's future challenger. Instead, he believes that White House aides were floating the name of the person that "they're least afraid of."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-tv/howard-fineman-pans-white_b_761890.html

Who is Howard Fineman? Is he someone we should care about or some liberal rag?

Fineman is an MSNBC analyst, worked for Newsweek, last I knew. Liberal, often sidekicked with Chris Matthews.

In 2008, Fineman interviewed Huckabee and came away "very impressed" with this dark horse candidate -- suggesting that he could very well be the 2008 surprise.

So now, we have Huckabee as a national politician, and Fineman is pegging him as a "regional candidate."

Hmm... sounds to me like Fineman is afraid that Huckabee is anything but the least that Obama should be afraid of.

All these analysts -- just hype and fury -- and no relevance or substance at all.

Howard Fineman is a liberal loon. No, we shouldn't pay any attention to what he says. As far as Governor Huckabee being the the candidate the Dems are least afraid of...that is so 2008. We all know the Democratic party breathed a collective sigh of relief when Huckabee did not become the nominee. :roll:

Here are two comments from Fineman and Huckabee from 2008:

Quote:
Fineman: Most of your wins have been regional ones. If you are mostly a " Southern candidate, " doesn ' t that prove their point?

Huckabee: No, it doesn't. I think the significance of our [Super Tuesday] victory in those five states was that we won despite the headwind of all the talk shows, conventional wisdom and the pundits saying, "Huckabee doesn't belong on this stage."
-----
Fineman: You ' re at home on television. Does it upset you that you seem to have been accepted more by the entertainment side of Big Media than the news side?

Huckabee: I think that the people who are connecting with me are probably more in tune with real America than a guy sitting in the chattering class in Washington—no offense to you intended.

http://www.newsweek.com/2008/02/09/i-m- ... -race.html


Here is another article by Fineman where Fineman is quite condescending of Huckabee and Huckabee's faith:

Hasn't hit Drudge... And I only thought it had a 24 hour window to be picked up on the site, which would've been the springboard for this story onto talk radio. Wonder if Drudge intentionally ignored what SHOULD be a juicy headline.

Hotair ran the story with the paragraph, but it was under a heading about Romney and playing the odds-intrade-and a picture of Romney.

Go Figure

Interestingly, I anticipated that the reader comments after the news articles would be full of the usual Huckabee-bashing, & instead, for the most part, it is being passed over to chew on other comments from O & his administration in the article.

I'm actually inclined to think that's good. I don't believe that it is beneficial for Huckabee to be promoted by the other side.

As I said on the other thread on this topic, I believe that they are actually attempting to undermine his support by dam*ing him with faint praise - knowing that there are people who will balk at supporting someone who the opposition expects them to support, & the usual bit from GH's conservative opposition about 'they want him to run because they know they can beat him' kind of thing.
