OK, We Will (Huckabee on "Guest Workers" Et Al)

In an article frighteningly entitled "Meet the Next President: Mike Huckabee" our absentee Governor made some interesting comments.

When it was noted that Huckabee risks alienating a significant segment of the Republican Party with his support for President Bush’s controversial guest-worker program, which would grant legal status to illegal aliens, he noted.....

“Yeah, I know, and I think it’s one of those things where if people are going to make a decision based on the emotion of that one issue, my attitude is then go ahead and write me off now,” he says. “Because if you don’t write me off on this one, you’ll find something else later on you’re just as mad about.”

OK, we will. My, from humble beginnings you really have progressed to elitist thinking. Benedict Arnold could have said the same thing about people getting "emotional" about "that one issue". Our anger is founded in reason Mr. Governor. You use the emotion as an excuse to avoid answering the legitimate, reasoned concerns that lie at the root of the emotions.

He also appeared to be rubbing his hands with glee at the possiblilty of a Republican meltdown in 06, thinking that it might help him personally, "“Will it be a wake-up call to our party, that we’re going to have to retool the message — not the principles — but the message?” Huckabee muses in an interview with The Examiner. “And will the party start looking for new voices, the ones that aren’t so already established?
