You Ran a Good Race, Mr. Huckabee

huckabee-2.jpgMike Huckabee is now out of the race for the White House. After losing in Texas, it was no longer a possibility that he could secure enough delegates to win the Republican nomination. He told his end-of-the-road rally Tuesday night, “I’d rather lose an election than lose the principles that got me into politics in the first place.” He ran a good race and I’m sad to see him go, but hopefully he’s not gone for good. Who knows- maybe we’ll be able to call Mr. Huckabee, Mr. Vice President.

    I’m shocked and disappointed that Huckabee would take money from struggling, hard-working Americans in order to fund his campaign. He said in his drop-out speech that it was…”the sacrifices of a truck driver in Michigan, of a housewife who sold her wedding ring on eBay and gave the contribution to the campaign, a janitor in Alabama who has a wife in a wheelchair who gave $20, not out of his abundance, but out of his poverty, so that our campaign could stay on the track.” In a bad economy, why would someone running for President take their money to fund a campaign that was clearly going to be fruitless? What would become of the economy if selfish Huckabee were President?

    What does that say about how passionate people were about his ability to run our country that they would take such steps to support him? Huckabee never forced money out of anyone’s pocket.
