Dick Morris recently said, that “Huckabee has more problems than just the Evangelical ghetto.” (Dick’s terminology, not mine.) Meaning that he needs to win the states outside the Bible belt. I agree with Dick’s analysis, but I think there is a deeper issue that no one is addressing. Maybe because those “issues” that I see are invisible in the more educated-circles, because they truly believe that the American public cares about a candidates “message”. I am here to bring the pain to their face.
Dick also said, “If he [Huckabee] could just get his message out.” All you political beltway poll taking people are forgetting who the American voter is! And who they vote for and why! They do NOT vote good character, good morals, an aggressive pro-military American foreign policy, or a belt-tightening domestic policy. Nor do they vote for middle age white guys, unless they are scandal ridden adulterers.
Unfortunately based on the majority of American voters, Huckabee doesn’t stand a snow ball’s chance in Hell. Flat out perception sells, and Huckabee isn’t “cool” (and neither is Romney.) He doesn’t have pictures of him smoking a bong like Obama does, he doesn’t play a sax in sunglasses and he doesn’t possess a bar room swagger. Nor has he been photographed eyeballing some woman’s rear end.
Voting for a person of proven character should be the norm. Someone with no allegiance to any particular race of American, yet standing for the good of our country and the common good of the American citizen. This should be the character appreciated by all voting Americans, but they just don’t.
The average brain-dead voters are killing America. Those who voted strictly for color, or a perceived coolness. That kind of thinking is worse than being a racist, because it is completely ignorant and downright dangerous. Obama’s being president is proof of that and two terms on top of it! The Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves. Shouldn’t the Obama voter have asked themselves who is this guy? What is his voting record? What does he stand for on foreign and domestic policies? No, Obama voters didn’t ask, right there is proof that only color or perceived coolness rates their vote.
As much as I like Huckabee and think he has stellar character and would possibly make a great president, this is just the way it is nowadays, in ignorant America. Young, cool and if possible not white, will win. Remember Clinton playing his saxophone on the Arsenio Hall Show. back-in-the-day??? After Clinton won the presidency it was asked of a group of middle-fortyish white women why they voted for him. Their answer was, “because he’s sexy!”
Just remember that, because Huckabee isn’t sexy, just say’n. The American voter sucks.
