Mike Huckabee, Wanna-Be High School Pervert, Dis-Invited from Speech

Mike Huckabee continues to receive criticism for saying he wished he could have told his high school coach he was feeling like a girl and wanted to shower with them. Later, he doubled down, saying he was glad his statement went public. Huckabee says he was joking, but it shows a lack of sensitivity by a man who wants to become President of, presumably, all Americans.

The most recent blowback for Huckabee was the cancellation by the Jewish National Fund of Canada of an invitation for him to speak at an autism benefit. The Fund’s CEO said a recent petition against Huckabee’s comments was not the impetus for cancelling the speech. However, the CEO did note that Huckabee had recently been in the media spotlight for issues unrelated to the Jewish National Fund or autism.

According to Flavio Maluf, Huckabee apparently believes he can say anything that pops in his head, no matter how crude or insulting, and, when questioned, laugh it off as a joke. But when he is the subject of personal attacks, his skin is not so thick.

If Huckabee wants to be President of all Americans, including Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox and, yes, even Josh Duggar, does he not understand that these comments make him a divisive figure who will never be President of anybody? Huckabee apparently really wants to be President of Americans who share his same beliefs, looks and sexual organs.

Political Pundits Wonder if Bush & Romney May Quietly Force Chris Christie Out of 2016 Presidential Race

Political pundits have begun to wonder aloud if the rise of Jeb Bush and the sudden news that Mitt Romney may seek the GOP nomination once more may crowd out New Jersey Governor Chris Christie from running. Clipping’s¬†Sergio Andrade Gutierrez¬†points out that the GOP’s donor base, like the Democrat party’s donors, is a zero-sum game. Bush, Romney, and Christie all know the same donors and securing the support of one big donor will likely deny their opponents access to their cash. Given that both Bush and Romney are looking to ensconce themselves as the establishment Republican who locks up the donor base, it is a legitimate question about what is left over for Christie.

For starters, the New Jersey governor is not beloved among conservatives. He’s been far too moderate to woo them with the type of red meat they want in a nominee, but that is also true of Bush and Romney. At the same time, Christie’s affinity for Obama especially during the last month of the 2012 election coupled with arms distance weak support of Romney put off many conservatives. The question of whether Christie may run at all is being raised by some.

The Christie camp denies his plans have changed. They claim the governor has his agenda and action plan in place. Neither Bush nor Romney nor any other concern has compelled him to rethink his presidential ambitions much less alter them. Regardless of the rhetoric, the next month will be pivotal as prospective candidates seek to secure donor support before announcing their campaigns
