A Word About President Huckabee . . . Integrity Trumps Everything

by Kevin mcCullough at Town Hall

Quote:
There are a handful of times in life where you get to experience something that has the feeling of brushing the presence of greatness. In my life at various times that has been something I didn't always realize up front. But having returned from a day and a half and a sum total of nine events over that period of time with one person in particular I have to tell you... I think I did this weekend.

In December of 2006 I wrote a column in which I was the first pundit in America to predict that Barack Obama would be president in 2009. I predicated that theory on a number of variables, but specifically foreseeing the possible match-up against a candidate John McCain, I felt that the overwhelming historicity of the race, the lack of specifics that the substance would come down to in the debate, and the inability for a candidate like McCain to take Obama on squarely would work against him, and in favor of Obama. Boy did I call that one...

Knowing that McCain as a candidate would have a squleching effect on the base, and more or less finish him off, was primarily due to one large reason. He did not wish to embrace evangelicals. He was offered significant help by major marketing firms that could have put him directly in front of evangelicals, and should he wish to champion the issues, character, and enthusiasm they would have brought to the trail, it was well within his realm of influence to reach out to them.

Instead he chose badly. He made a strategic decision NOT to offer the hand to faith based people, and as a result Obama was given free reign on the matters that people of faith cared about. McCain never even challenged, nor disputed blatant statements made by Obama that violated the basic conscience of the Bible-believing Christian.

Riding the wave of that bit of history, running a campaign on nothing but empty words of "hope" and "change", and being left unchallenged intellectually, and spiritually on his messaging, Obama ran the table, and my prediction came true.

I saw it all in December of 2006...

I'm a wee bit weirded out by what I'm about to tell you, mostly because there is so much time to go until the campaign for 2012 begins, but I believe that Governor Huckabee will win the nomination, and in a very possible scenario President Huckabee will place his hand on the Bible in January of 2013.

But like my impressions about Obama, this is not a random feeling I have but rather an atuned set of circumstances that would pave the way for it to happen. (Some of which I've even begun referring to on this blog...)

Here they go:
1. Unlike the 2008 contest - the conservative message will be the ideas that the American people will be seeking. In only 75 days President Obama has distinguished himself as the most progressive, least values oriented, furthest left, most hostile to faith, risk, productivity, national welfare, border security idealogue the nation has ever seen. His attempt to devalue the American currency alone sets him in a class already of running the risk of being perhaps the most anti-American President to reside in the White House. His love for the limelight, his empty suit/no experience abilities in solving real problems are unable to hide his leftist principles/tendencies and he is being exposed. Buyers remorse is high, and the move towards sound economic policy will be the screams from every sector of the economy. In unison, the employee, the business owner, the manager, marketer, producer, and seller will all be screaming for financial policy overhaul. America presently has the second most punitive tax policy towards business in the world. This cannot continue to be the case and expect our economy to rebound any time soon. President Huckabee's financial policy message for the foreseeable future will be the fair tax. Taxing consumption is an equal opportunity tax, and people pay only on what they consume, the need for the IRS would be history, businesses would feel the freedom of venture, risk, and opportunity to return and the growth cycle economy would see historic achievement.

2. Unlike 2008 - the genuine believers in the social/moral causes of the day will be empowered. Barack Obama has turned out to be a lie of historic proportions. He has not championed the inclusion of Christians nor their perspective in his cabinet. (There is not a single born-again Christian advising him in any capacity.) His view of morality is absent, and his moral judgement is then flawed because of the absence of values in his own soul, much less his Godless policies that he's already pushed far harder than any Christian who voted for him ever believed he would. The persecution that is already being unleashed on the American Christian culture will continue to grow, but Christians will benefit from this in the purification of doctrine into action. In doing so, genuine believers will develop greater conviction on living faithfully, and their stewardship in their portion of "We The People" will be taken far more seriously. They will look for and expect from those they support to deal with the issues of the day with transparent honesty, individual decency, and lasting integrity. In short Megan McCain is NOT the future of America and the McCainish disdain for moral clarity will in turn be disdained. President Huckabee will be someone the nation will be proud of in terms of his personal character, his pragmatic insight into solving problems, and his ability to help those who even dislike him initially to be swayed with humor and humanity.

3. Unlike 2008 - a base will emerge and rally to the Governor's aide. Unlike the non-enthusiastic campaign of Senator McCain, Governor Huckabee will have vibrant, faithful, and enthusiastic volunteers who form armies in every state. It is an easily provable fact that had Senator Fred Thompson not remained in the race in South Carolina (thus doing a favor to Senator McCain) Huckabee would have steamrolled McCain and taken the momentum in Florida. To lose to McCain by a single point in South Carolina stole the momentum away, allowed McCain to claim the mantle, and head to Florida with a lead in last minute fundraising. This will not happen in 2012. Huckabee's brand will be the most established voice and brand of the GOP by the time the primary elections get underway. And hopefully this time National Review will not be bought off by alias PACs funded by the Romney camp to create abjectly false impressions and misrepresentations of Huckabee's platform while overlooking significantly noticeable gaps in Romney's. (As an aside, I spent more time with Romney and Huckabee in the 2008 primary than any two of the other GOP candidates... I like both men personally. And would've supported either of them in the general election. But make no mistake about it, Huckabee is the more electable of the two.) These impressions formed outlandish mischaracterizations by some conservative icons of Huckabee in 2008. But by having his own talk vehicle, platform, and extended reach through ABC network commentaries and the Fox News Channel's television network, Huckabee is avoiding any future dependency on a singular conservative outlet getting his message out. He's taken control of the message, and the distribution rights of the medium, and he won't be bullied in 2010,11, and 12. The home-school groups will return, so will the college kids, so will African American and Latino voters -- all of whom share a natural affinity with Huckabee that will be lacking in every other GOP candidate. They will volunteer for him, they will walk districts for him, they will pull all-nighters for him. Because they will see their efforts in doing so as them being able to take charge of their own future.

Long story short I've just completed two days and nine events with Governor Huckabee. In multiple settings from private meals to public speaking, from morning church to a University convocation service (pictured above) he was embraced and given standing ovations in every location. (Including the 10,000 college kids picture above!)

The reason is clear... no one believes Governor Huckabee walks on water, but they have learned that his word is his bond. They hear from his heart and they see that he is more like the everyday guy than any man to ever run for President.

They also value his judgment, and his ability to speak to what they are feeling.

The combination to do those two things, combined with his taking control of his medium and message is demonstrating that even only 75 days into THIS administration Pastors across America are already telling their congregations they wished Huck had been the candidate, and knows he will win in 2012.

And after spending this past weekend watching him, talking with him, and being with him up close... all I can say is, I see what they are feeling, thinking, and saying... and there is something happening *ALREADY* that will not be able to be countered!

Very prophetic perspective by the writer and I left a positive comment. I believe we will need Huckabee even more to lead our nation in 2012 !! America may never be quite the same but hopefully lessons will be learned. Thanks for posting this blog for the encouragement it has provided me !

Lucky college kids to hear Huckabee on their way out into the "real" world.

Wow, in that very large photo--you can see the expressions of the individual students/parents--take a long look. What do you make of their expressions/folded arms, smiles, bordom, buyers remorse, resentment, joy, etc???????

Isn't this Liberty Univ.? Jerry Flawell's old haunt?

Does anyone know how to get this picture to post at a regular size. I copied it from the properties, but could not get it to post correctly.

Plus, it double posted my post.

Thanks

I love these two blips from this article that are OH SO important to Huckabee winning in 2012 if it's even possible for a Republican to do so:


Quote:

This is all about MOMENTUM, people will wait very "eagerly" and get very excited when it comes time for Huckabee to announce his candidacy. VERY UNLIKE January of 2007, where no one even noticed.

WE NEED THESE GROUPS! They are Vital to the GOP staying alive...period.

Give us the big tent Huckabee! Only you can actually do it!

It is amazing to see in print what we have believed all along. It's already starting? Heck, it never ended.

Is it possible a Huckaboom is starting right underneath our noses?

We'll get a good idea tomorrow with the relaunch I think. I just got giddy reading this article. He has no idea. We never broke ranks. "HucksArmy" is still growing and continuing to mobilize. We are getting active in our local party and running for offices all over the country.

It looks like that may be happening and the Republican party is the last to know. 8)

We the people have our leader, but those elites can't figure out why they have lost their power for we have given it ti the one who is faithful, principled as we are and an excellent voice of the voiceless speaking out our values. I was so pleased to read this!!!!!!!!! This validates our movement from the heart for freedom, for God and the founding fathers of this nation born under God.

Being bombarded daily with dismal news, I (same as you Brian) also got giddy reading this. I already sent it in an email to all that had to listen to me throughout the last primary and general on how Huckabee was the ONE! :lol:

I read the article earlier today and too was pleasantly surprised by it. In hind site, and though any press is good press, it seems a little over the top with constant references to "President Huckabee." Maybe its just his style, as I have never read much of his stuff before. I hope thier aren't any alterior motives by this guy by anointing him president so soon. I am just always skeptical by such things.

I say great article, but man have we got alot of work to do.

I was curious as to the article Kevin wrote in 2006, so I did some research and found it. Notice also that this prediction and his statements on the GOP candidates was made before Huckabee entered the race.


Quote:
Why it will be 'President Obama' in 2009
by Kevin McCullough

Barring several series of near seizure-like corrections, Barack Obama will take the Presidential oath of office in January of 2009. It will be a cold January morning, his beautiful wife and daughters will be by his side and they will shiver as he places his hand on the Bible and swears to uphold the Constitution of the United States. His presidency that will follow, if reflective of anything at all of his legislative record, will then seek to dismantle that same Constitution.

I have a long track record of predictions on Obama, and all of them have come true. I have no reason to believe that this one will conclude any differently.

There are reasons that this event is destined to take place, and given the option of knowing them but remaining silent, or mentioning them in the hope that the scene I've just mentioned never comes to path - I choose the latter. If any of these were to take significant turns, the formula might collapse. This is given the fact that the nation will be in a holding pattern for the next two years with absolute gridlock on pretty much everything (with the possible exception of amnesty for illegal aliens.)

RAGING LIBERALS - In 2006 the message of the voters was not Ned Lamont. Rather it was the "Crash Dummy Class of '06." Democrats who looked, and tried to talk like people of faith - at least long enough to get elected. George Soros, the Daily Kos, Al Gore, Susan Sarandon, and not to be forgotten Howard Dean, have made their go at it. They failed. But since their party won the midterms - they believe they've been justified. Their anti-American rhetoric will increase. They will express dissatisfaction with Pelosi/Reid and demand an increased presence in the 2008 picture. The democratic primary voter will reject this increased extremism and look for a "consensus builder." They will long for someone who is "above the frey." Obama will fit that profile and will bring "together" the left and right in his own party. He will do it with a sense of style, smoothness, and humor - a stark contrast to Hillary, Gore, Kerry, et al.

DIGUSTED CONSERVATIVES - Still reeling from the "ginormous" let down of the Senate under Bill Frist, and the second term Presidency of George W. Bush, normally energized conservatives will look to a field that offers a pro-choice/pro-gay mayor from New York, a Mormon from Massachusetts - who was pro-choice/pro-gay but genuinely seems now not to be - but may have hired illegal aliens, blah blah blah, or John McCain (whose single biggest problem is that he IS John McCain.) Normally eager "tax-cutting, government shrinking, let's defend our nation, pro-life, pro-family" voters, organizations, and leaders will be assaulted with speeches on Romney's health care reform, or Giuliani’s crime initiatives, or John McCain. Whoever emerges, will have not one tenth the oratory skills of Obama and they will come off looking as tired, dry, and stale as day-old toast.

EXHAUSTED MODERATES - They are tired of the stale toast, and will be looking for anything exciting. Mind you, moderates by definition don't truly stand for anything so it doesn't really matter what the candidate stands for. These people voted for Kennedy, Reagan, and Clinton all based on one thing, "how does he make me feel?" Realizing this Obama will be a lightening rod on the campaign trail. He will draw record crowds for every appearance he makes (something he's already begun to do.) Money will flow in as a result. Obama's strategy of talking about cooperation, sounding bipartisan, and seeming to curtly rebuke both sides of the aisle will seem to validate his "ability" to "stay above the frey."

ENERGIZED BLACKS - The true voice for alternatives for black voters will not be heard because the voices of great men like Bishop Harry Jackson will not yet have become distinct enough within American media, and because the media, in ignoring the Bishop, will instead return again and again to the altar of Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson. Instead, as the media is already doing, there will be near non-stop fawning over the Senator from Illinois as he flashes the big smile. Black voters, who in the majority vote for party and not conviction anyway, will see Obama as the personality that no one since Dr. King has been able to live up too. Obama will be invited to each and every significant black pulpit in America. He will rail with poetry, sing with soul, rhyme when appropriate, and never will the IRS even think of threatening even one of these houses of worship for illegal political action.

GULLIBLE EVANGELICALS - The most reliable base of voters for the Republican Party since the days of President Reagan have been the social conservatives. Church-going born-again Christians who believe in God, the importance of His word, and the significance of living out their faith in an open and compassionate way every single day have been the backbone of the GOP. This past Friday Rick Warren,
through the implied endorsement of allowing Obama to speak at one of the largest evangelical churches in
America gave Obama the opportunity to split evangelicals who will be misled by Obama's words instead of opening their eyes to his actions. In my gentle admonition to Rick Warren over the past couple of weeks I reiterated time and again that it was this opportunity being extended to Obama that would be manipulated by both the press , and Obama himself to pose as a "person of faith." Warren's stubborn action of insisting upon having Obama speak at Saddleback Church in southern California has had that exact effect .

From this point forward should the trend of any of these five areas shift significantly Obama's chances could be compromised. But there are credible reasons to believe that they won't be.

So mark this date down, because it is the first time anyone accurately predicted that Barack Obama will be the next President of the United States.

And you have no idea how much I hope this prediction does not come true!

Oh, so back in 2006, Pastor Rick Warren was giving Obama some religious capital as a "person of faith." No wonder so many Christian conservatives were led astray.

I had the exact same reaction of giddiness when I read this article. We need some HOPE and Governor Huckabee offers the BEST HOPE WE'VE GOT.

The article is a positive one, but I was discouraged to see the same old song and dance in the comment section. The same lies that were told on him during the 2008 campaign are still alive and when it comes time for Huckabee to campaign for 2012, if he chooses to do so, he is going to have to combat the illegal immigration lie, the tax lie, and the Mormon lie all over again.
