Giving the Huckster his due

Mike Huckabee was inspiration for character in novel

Townhall carries a fascinating article by Douglas MacKinnon regarding his forthcoming novel, The Apocalypse Directive. The author reveals that former Gov. Mike Huckabee was the inspiration for the twisted character in the novel — and why.

MacKinnon is an author and nationally syndicated columnist. He formerly served as a White House and Pentagon official.

His provocative article is available here.

    I hold the egocentric Huckabee responsible for the GOP failure to connect with the electorate during this last presidential campaign. He hung on when he clearly had no chance to win the nomination, in order to keep Mitt Romney, who had mega-qualifications, out of the final stretch. McCain never had a chance, but I believe Romney would have be able to give Obama a run for his money.
    I was furious with Huckabee. He was looking down the road and thought he had a better shot at beating Obama than unseating Romney. I will never trust him.

  2. Ray says:

    Right on the money, Chuck. I thought Huckabee was a righteous guy for about a millisecond.
    He is a huge opportunist, ready to do whatever it takes to elevate himself regardless of who falls in his wake.

    I would have supported Mitt Romney in a heartbeat. It was a shame he had to worry about defending his religion. Obama certainly got a pass on both of his — his early years in Muslim schools and a father and grandfather who were deeply involved Muslims. Then on to Jeremiah Wright’s hate-filled and anti-white, anti-America church.

  4. Night Owl says:

    He kept referring to Romney as a “flip-flopper” on life issues. The way I look at it is I am always happy when someone comes over to our side. A lot of people have never actually given the issue much thought. They mouth what they think is mainstream, until it becomes something they must confront either personally or politically.
