    I'm not even an american but likes Mike Huckabee so much for president that I watch his campaign closely to know more about him and his stand on certain issues.

    Here are some of his videos:

    I wouldn't vote for my former governor is he was the only candidate on the ballot. While the governor of Arkansas Huckabee was soft on crime, a tax raiser, and wanted to give taxpayer-funded college scholarships to the children of illegal aliens.

    Huckabee may be pro-life; however, other than on social issues he is a big government liberal. I would rather have Hillary Clinton as president compared to Mike Huckabee. He was horrible as my governor; I certainly don't want him as my president.

    I know that Mike Huckabee is not a perfect candidate but He is certainly right on major issues with regards to christian views. Besides His views on immigration and other issues has at least christian flavor in it. Think about compassion, mercy and justice.

    You can also consider him as your horrible governor but hey, not all many arkansas believe as you do. Mike Huckabee had won his reelection bid and exit in his tenure with more than 50% favorable rating among all arkansas. And take also for consideration that majority of arkansans favor democrats.

    Another side note, Time magazine consider him one of the best governor. He also became chairman of National Governors Association which speak volume about his character and performance.

    We are electing a president in these United States, not a national pastor.

    I am all for generosity with one's own money. Huckabee is welcome to do that with his own money all he wants but he needs to leave other people's, namely taxpayers', money alone. We have way, way too much socialism in our federal government as it is. We don't need Huckabee as president increasing it.

    He is not pro tax increase at all. He is actually pushing Fair tax and signed the no tax hike pledge.

    As governor He did it to comply with the court ruling and some of the tax increase was voted by majority of arkansans. It seems that you are in the minority with regards to this. Remember he was re-elected and still majority favors him during his exit. In this case i would go with the majority of the arkansans. Take note he got some pretty good things he did there. Otherwise he will not be re-elected or exit unfavorably.

    Support Huckabee all you want but if he became president I predict that you will regret it after four years.

    1) So which are we to believe - his actions as governor or his words today?

    I'm sure glad Huckabee has virtually no chance of being elected president!

    I would say he has. He is rising in Iowa as well as in national polls.

    He is virtually tied with Romney in the latest Iowa polls:

    IOWARepublicans

    Giuliani -11%
    Huckabee -24%
    Hunter -1%
    McCain -10%
    Paul - 3%
    Romney - 26%
    Tancredo -1%
    Thompson -11%
    Undecided -13%
    • Among registered Republicans saying they will definitely participate in the Republican caucuses on January 3, Mike Huckabee is at 24%, Mitt Romney is at 23%, Fred Thompson is at 13%, Rudy Giuliani is at 11%, and John McCain is at 10%.
    • Among no party voters (independents) and other voters saying they will definitely participate in the Republican caucuses on January 3, Romney is at 39%, Huckabee is at 27%, Giuliani is at 9%, and McCain is at 8%.
    • 47% of likely caucus participants are undecided (13%) or say they could switch candidates between now and January 3 (34%).
    • 71% of those saying they support Romney say their support is definite.
    • 67% of those saying they support McCain say their support is definite.
    • 65% of those saying they support Thompson say their support is definite.
    • 58% of those saying they support Huckabee say their support is definite.
    • 33% of those saying they support Giuliani say their support is definite.
    • Among men, Romney is at 31%, Huckabee is at 25%, McCain is at 10%, and Thompson is at 9%.
    • Among women, Huckabee is at 22%, Romney is at 21%, Giuliani is at 15%, Thompson is at 14%, and McCain is at 11%.

    I will give Huckabee credit for one thing - he is a smooth talker. In this way he reminds me of his fellow former Arkansas governor - Bill Clinton.

    Ken, I am with you 100% on this issue. I don't like it that he freed a felon who then committed another heinous crime. To me, he is soft on crime, also.

    Interesting that you won't support a man because you fear what he'll do, but will support a woman that promises to do that which you abhor.

    I am not for Hillary and I am not for the former Republican Gov. of Arkansas. I think that we have a full record on both of them.

    The GOP field does not have a good candidate for the Evangelical voter. I think that this is all going to have to be sorted out by the primaries next year and at the GOP convention (concerning the question of abortion). I have a wait-and-see attitude and I am not leaning towards anyone whatsoever. I think that the GOP always nominates the front-runner but that the front-runner will be decided by the early primaries. I would say that it is between Rudy and Fred, both of whom are disappointments on the question of abortion. I see no reason to promote any other candidates at this time.

    First of all, "Fair" tax is anything but fair. Also, one can raise all kinds of taxes. Fair Tax proposal only addresses the federal income tax. There's many many more taxes than that.

    This is interesting and sadly telling. You believe Huckabee to be a big time liberal. We all know Hillary is a big time liberal. So they are equals at best for no one can be more liberal than Hillary. Now Hillary is pro-murder and Huckabee is pro-life. Yet you would choose Hillary over Huckabee. Very sad.

    Christians need to get out of their sin of going along with the world's ways of analyzing the issues and get back to critiquing everything through God's Word.

    Repent my brothers! :thumbs:
