I never paid much attention to Huckabee, but of what I heard him say so far, he seems like a fair guy. He was elected to governor, so he is kinda electable. As far as president, no way. Of course an 8th grader can put Palin in her place.
That's my concern with Ron Paul and Huck. I don't think either would be wimps once elected. I do wonder if they have the desire to sling mud when it's needed. I think McCain proved that if you don't shoot back, the mud slung at you tends to stick. It's a shame that the media plays such a huge role, but they do.
I don't like Huckabee as a presidential candidate, but I think I would like him as a neighbor - not that it's likely. But he's a decent kinda guy who would take care of his stuff without getting picky and whiney if you didn't mow your lawn on time.
The problem is that being a good neighbor and being a good POTUS require radically different skill sets.
If you've seen what Huckabee looked like a decade ago, you know that healthy eating is a very personal issue for him. He's probably lost close to Sarah Palin's weight thanks to healthy food choices and exercises. I don't think anyone is talking about the government forcing us to eat healthier, but there is certainly nothing wrong with the First Lady promoting healthy living, and it's not something she deserves to be ridiculed over.
Agreed. Michelle made that one statement. "For the first time....". Its something she should have never said. Because of that she is going to be dogged by the hard right for as long as she is in the White House. Maybe longer. Is it right? Probably not. Should she have shown a little more tact? Probably. Huckabee is a minister, he believes in forgiveness and the frailty of man kind. He's not going to throw out the baby with the bath water so to speak.
I agree. I'm no big Obama fan, but I'm reasonable enough to admit that he and Michelle have done some good things. I don't understand the far-right's hoopla about the salad bars in schools. Kids won't be FORCED to eat a salad - that choice will just be made available to them. And I think choice is a good thing!
I know Huck is very health conscious, and I applaud his amazing weight loss. I kow how hard it is! He's not a bad bass guitar player, either. lol
I agree! But there are also some choices in school cafeterias that I honestly think are just dumb. Soda pop machines? Candy machines? I mean, c'mon!! It's one thing to permit kids to bring empty calories in their own brown bag lunches - but to provide those as an option that appears to be sanctioned by the school? Let's at least balance those non-nutritious choices with the choice of some foods that are actually healthy!
I agree. Why can't they replace the soda machines with ones that sell juices or bottled water? Instead of candy snacks, sell fruit, nuts, or low-fat ice cream, which at least has some protein and calcium.
Salad should be available as an option. Some kids need the calories from a traditional school lunch because that might be the only meal they get all day.

In a recent poll, Romney edges out Obama in 2012. What really surprised me is that Huckabee and Obama are almost tied in the poll. Palin didn't fair as well. I hope she takes this to heart! Did you read what Mama Bush...
