I wonder what's going on?

This has me intrigued. I didn't think he was close to making a decision, with recent report he would wait till July. I just read that people I thought would back Huckabee are going to back Daniels. Jeb Bush and Haley Barbour backing Daniels make me nervous.

I don't know; maybe with the huge flop of Romney's recent health care speech, Huckabee may have decided to announce his run now?

That is an interesting thought! I hope he does!

It was only a week or two ago that Huckabee stated on his program that he hasn't made up his mind yet. I don't think this announcement will be about him running or not. Though I have no idea what it could be about.

If it is, I think it would lean towards "not". Mainly because I think if he decided that he was running, it would take a little more time to set things up. He has to inform Fox, and they will have to cancel his show. And unless he made the decision almost immediately after the show where he said he hadn't made a decision, the logistics would be a little tough.

Or maybe he's announcing an exploratory committee, and that someone else will be taking over his show for the next 2 weeks or so until he makes a decision?

maybe he wants to see how much buzz just the hint of an announcement would create.

I have watched FOX News long enough to know that they often write headlines for upcoming stories that fall far short of the expectation created by the announcement. Like magazine tabloids trying to get you to buy the paper, FOX headlines incite interest to keep you through the commercials, often just to disappoint when reading the article. I know this was Mikes individual announcement and not FOX's but still.... Maybe he wants to promote his Time Travel Academy History Lesson videos.

And I believed Mike when he said he wouldn't announce/make a decision until summer. So I tend to think if it is about running he will announce he isn't. But I have been following Mike and his movements for several years and I just don't believe he will bow out. Maybe the push to get Christie in the race has caused him to decide sooner. The short of it is, I am intrigued as well, inspite of my earlier disclaimer. :pray

I’m just not sure what he’s going to announce,” Mr. Gidley, a top adviser to the former governor, said. “I know that sounds insincere, but I really don’t.”

Asked whether the announcement would settle the question of Mr. Huckabee’s running, one way or the other, Mr. Gidley said, “that’s an interesting question. He doesn’t throw around ‘I’ve got big announcement’ lingo in a haphazard fashion. But I really don’t know.


I'm gonna go for it and say this is it. Just because of the last paragraph.

If this is it, then I'm not sure I understand why he is making all of his Fox News media appearances on Friday/tonight (Cavuto, O'Reilly, Fox Business) when he wouldn't announce until Saturday night (well I guess Saturday afternoon unless it is a live taping).

Is announcing on his show a good idea?

Author:  dbonhoeffer [ Fri May 13, 2011 11:59 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Big announcement for Huckabee coming.....

Maybe he'll be telling the viewers of O'Reilly and Cavuto that he has an announcement on Saturday. In regards to it being a good idea...I don't see how it would be bad idea. Also Saturdays are usually very slow media days so if he announcess on that day then all the news outlets will just be running stories on him. Thats my hypothesis! :)

Well, until he announces he could be in the media as much as he wants without them having to worry about giving equal time to other candidates who demand it.

his facebook say's he's going on O'Reilly to promote the history videos

I think the only big announcement Huckabee will be making is that History for Kids videos that he has just promoted.

The tweet that he sent out earlier was that he was going on O'Reilly to talk about this new video series.

I bet that is all it is.

I hope not. Well, at least not exclusively. He should speak on issues that he believes may not be addressed enough by media when he's an official candidate.

I was just thinking that the most horrible idea would be if the big announcement was that he was going to give a future date for "the decision."

Post subject:  Re: Big announcement for Huckabee coming.....

I don't really know what to make of this. He's definitely generating buzz intentionally with his talk of making a "major announcement," and I don't think he's the kind of politician to generate buzz and then play, "Gotchya," by making some kind of a non-announcement or by talking about his new history videos, etc.

Also, I still tend to think he's better off staying out a while longer so that he can continue to use his media platforms to the fullest advantage.

However, I did speculate yesterday after listening to Romney's speech that if Huckabee was still on the fence there was almost no way he'd be able to stay there after listening to Mitt self-destruct for all the world to see:

Yesterday cschande wrote:

So, up until today I'd been convinced that Mike hadn't yet made up his mind about whether or not he's running. After that doozie of a speech Mitt gave this afternoon, though, I have to believe Mike just fell off the fence. Hard. Laughing hysterically all the way down.

He's in folks. He can't not be now.


If that's really what happened I call first dibs on calling it! :lol: Haha. But I'm still not sure. All in all I certainly trust his political judgment (not to mention Rollins and his other advisers) and I'll certainly be pumped and ready to hit the ground running (pun intended) if he does announce tomorrow night.

Can't wait!!!

Ed Rollin's story keeps changing, does he really have any inside info or not?? UGGhh its so frustrating!

Quote:
It is unclear whether any federal rules would prohibit Mr. Huckabee from making a campaign-related announcement from the perch of his show. But if the decision is that he’s running, he could announce that Saturday is his last show on Fox.

Ed Rollins, a veteran Republican strategist who has served as Mr. Huckabee’s top political adviser, said in an interview Friday that he does not believe Mr. Huckabee will run again.

“I have no idea,” Mr. Rollins said. But he added that the fact that Mr. Huckabee’s top people don’t know what announcement he will make is “pretty indicative that he’s not going to run.”

Over the last several months, Mr. Rollins has been helping Mr. Huckabee to put in place the pieces of a campaign to be ready if he decided to run, Mr. Rollins said.

“There was a tremendous opportunity for him to be a viable, credible candidate,” Mr. Rollins said. “I think Mike has got unique talents but he just didn’t have the fire in the belly. I can’t want it more than the candidate does.”

Mr. Rollins said that “there is a campaign that can be put together in a week. All of the pieces are there.” But he said that in the last two weeks Mr. Huckabee’s family expressed doubts about a run.

“They did not want him to run. I think that had a big impact,” Mr. Rollins said.

In addition, Mr. Rollins said that he did not think Fox News would allow Mr. Huckabee to use the platform of a news show on their network to make an announcement that he is running for president.

I am pretty sure that this big announcement is about the 2012. Knowing Huckabee, there is no way he would throw around a big announcement just for the history videos. That would be epic trolling in and of itself. I myself would get pissed for being strung around like that just for some history videos.

Speaking of which, the history videos lend us a clue though. Why create those if he is not going to run and stay on Fox News? Legally, he can work a job while campaigning, so this must be his way of securing resources ahead of the game. This is a hypothesis I have been thinking on since the announcements about the video.

Post subject:  Re: Big announcement for Huckabee coming.....

All the media appearances, just to tell people he's not running? Don't think so, hopefully not.

Btw, I hope Hucksarmy will be open for a while even if Huckabee decides not to run. Want to save some stuff.
