“Emails to Independents, Republicans, Democrats are equally important.”
When was the last time you saw any political candidate write that on his campaign website, let alone in a primary? Mike had to choose a party, because that’s how American politics is organized. But he is operating above the party system and going directly to America’s people.
When pundits and other candidates’ supporters say a vote for Huckabee is a vote for Giuliani or Clinton or ___ (enter least favored candidate here), every single one of them forget that Gov. Huckabee appeals to a broad cross-section of the American electorate. The independent who’s fed up with the current acrimonious political realm, the conservative Democrat whose economic beliefs are to the left of the typical Republican but whose social positions are consistent with the conservative Republican’s, the true Democrat who is drawn to Huckabee’s genuineness and willingness to reach across the “aisle” and work with all side.
The above, found on the Huckabee campaign website tonight, is yet another reason why I like Mike and why he’s going to win the Republican nomination and the general election in 11 months.
Step away from party labels, from looks, from identities and listen to the rhetoric coming from the candidates. Which one actually sounds like he has plans for America’s future, actually would try to carry them out as President (there is that ‘little’ check called Congress, don’t forget), is willing to work with all of Congress, not with just those in his own party, and would actually listen and take advice from a voter Main Street America, instead of the traditional political analyst, focus group, or poll?
Only one candidate comes to mind: Mike Huckabee.
You see, folks, it’s about leadership. And America desperately needs a leader who removes himself from party politics and leads all of America, not just the 48.9 percent that elected him. Mike Huckabee is the only person out there who is willing to work with, and bridge the gap between red, blue, and purple states. He will listen to all sides.
And the above, yet again, proves his willingness to work with and work for all Americans, regardless of the party mascot.
