He was very serious, you couldn't even see his dimple. He said that he didn't even talk to his family until this afternoon. Perhaps he wanted to tell them before Ed Rollins.

Ed just ran to his phone frantically dialing "Please pick up, Mike. Please pick up!" :floor

I say Mike announces the EC and it's on! It's so on!

The tipping point for Mike may have been the disaster of Romney's speech yesterday. I think he was waiting to make absolutely sure he thought he would be able to win and seeing Romney fumble yesterday convinced him that Romney will not be able to overcome his self-inflicted flaws.

I was just thinking the same thing. All day, I have been going through everything that could have triggered this timing and it clicked when he started talking about Romney on Cavuto.

I have also been struggling with the timing. If he is NOT running.....why now???? If he is running, I definitely know "why now."

Chris Wallace just announced he will have GMH on his show Sunday morning...good sign!

This is very good news. This just isn't a cable show.

He would not have gotten Chris Wallace to let him on just to announce he is sitting 2012 out and taken up basket weaving!

PPP even has a note about the announcement, oh yea, and the Missouri results too.http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com ... a-and.html

Quote:
Rumor has it Huckabee may announce that he is not running on his Fox News show tomorrow. That would be good news, at least for the time being, for the president. Huckabee gives him more trouble than the others in the South, in Appalachia, and up and down the Mississippi--including in states where the president remains strong (like North Carolina and Virginia) and states where he has declined since 2008 (like Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Missouri). The GOP almost certainly needs to return to Southern dominance and dip into either the West or Midwest--or both--to win the White House next year, and it remains to be seen whether another candidate can establish the rapport with these voters that Huckabee has.

Romney is not a much weaker alternative in these states, and he does put Obama more on the defensive in the Northeast and Southwest, particularly Nevada and New Hampshire, than does Huckabee. But Huckabee would certainly be leaving both a good shot at the nomination and a decent shot at Obama on the table by keeping his hat out of the ring.

Will he or Won't he? Mike Huckabee to announce his decision on Huckabee Show.

Blast! I usually am on line every night. Last night I said, "I'm too tired...one night off....I won't miss anything." What happened w/ Mitt's speech? How bad was it? Would someone please start a SEPARATE thread!!

I feel Mike's going to run...the path is open. But if he doesn't, it will be b/c of lack of $$$. He once said, "I don't want to jump into a pool without any water in it."

I had a major research paper due today at 5. Got it done in time fortunately, but with news bubbling up about Mike's big announcement, it wasn't easy!

First I was nervous, then I was disappointed when I read Rollins' statement, now I'm pumped!!!

Of course everyone in the liberal media and even many in the conservative media are hoping he won't run, Sean Hannity will probably still be claiming that to anyone who'll listen even after Mike announces he's in, but, as Southern Doc pointed out earlier, all signs are still pointing in the right direction.

Looking forward to a big HuckaBoom this weekend!!!

I just noticed this:

Quote:
While Huckabee’s Saturday show is always taped, his announcement about 2012 will run live, according to an informed source.


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the ... _blog.html

He's being very careful about not letting this news leak. I also thought it was telling that in the Cavuto interview, he essentially said not to believe rumors from people who thought they knew the answers.

He's building up for something and playing it extremely close. Whatever announcement he's making, he wants to make it on HIS terms.

This is profound.

My sister called me at work, after reading the article with Rollins, to tell me that Governor Huckabee was not running and, I want to tell you, it was all I could do not to cry...Then, when I found out it wasn't certain yet what announcement he would make I held out a little bit of hope. But, that article, along with the way I perceived Gov. Huckabee the last time he was on FOX talking about his decision has me very worried that he is NOT running. If he is not running the timing is very bad for the GOP because it will look like he feels Obama can't be beaten (remember he said he wouldn't run if he didn't think he could win) and Obama has a huge surge in poll numbers because of the Osama killing. I'm so hoping that he IS going to run, but why would he not tell anyone from his "campaign in waiting?"

I've been reading a little on Race42012 (please forgive me!) and two things stuck out. Well, three if you count everyone convinced that Huckabee isn't running. :roll: They also said Huckabee cannot announce on Fox News or else they will be fined and that Ed Rollins was on another network saying that Huckabee is too fat to run.

WHAT????? scratch

His race - his pace - his time - his terms. I agree he needs to announce live and not in a pre-taped show or the news would be all over the country before the show even aired. Do we have any HA members that will be there live :?:

For those who said he's announcing early because he said summer - they should have been here in northern Illinois where it was in the upper 80s to lower 90s earlier this week. We had to turn our a/c on. We're back to lower temperatures and spring rain today.

I've been busy and haven't read very much on Race today. I did notice that Huckabee is dominating the front page. :D
