I was something of a Mike Huckabee guy.
I met him at a dinner a few years back ... he's a very affable, intelligent, quick witted individual.
But I've crossed him off my list because of his involvement in the "repealitnow.org" scam.
Now, don't misunderstand me. I have made, and will continue to make my position clear on that horrific, unconstitutional piece of trash known as Obamacare.
But that's not the issue here. That's not why Huckabee is doing this.
What Huckabee is doing... the entire purpose of this campaign... is to build a list.
Don't get me wrong.
I have no problem with Huckabee making a list. That's what politicians do.
In fact, here locally, those completely in the pocket of the Mohegan/Paskenta/Cowlitz/Barnett scam known as the megacasino did the exact same thing in LaCenter for the elections in '09.
Those in the casino posse... most of the city government and the mayor, along with the Nolans, put together a campaign that was SUPPOSED to be to build a petition to put the sell-out of LaCenter to a vote.
What they didn't tell anyone and what the true purpose of the petitions were was entirely to put together a GOTV list so these clowns could get their ignorant supporters out to vote in the elections and take over control of the city council... which they proceeded to do like clockwork.
It was typically underhanded and slimy, but brilliantly planned and executed.
So, sorry, Gov. It's not that I mind you putting a list together... a list you can either use or sell for your future campaigns.
It's that you're doing it as a subterfuge... keeping the people in the dark who are "signing" this list as to it's true purpose.
Because no one in DC will care about your "petition" except you. And that's the kind of garbage we already have in the White House.
