“I believe he would embrace the Tea Party Movement, if he were alive today, and support the work of Sarah Palin, Scott Brown and others who espouse conservative principles, who are opening up the eyes of the public to what is happening to our nation. Unlike my brother, I campaigned with and for my father in 1976 and in 1980 — and I feel more qualified to say what he would and would not have supported. He would be applauding the grassroots organization of this country and Sarah Palin for making herself available to elect conservative candidates.”
Wednesday night I watched the Republican National Convention on television and there, before my very eyes, I saw my Dad reborn; only this time he’s a she.
And on a related note, someone else has been called “the next Reagan” by someone who was very close to the original Ronald Reagan…
Governor Huckabee has probably inspired me as much as Ronald Reagan did. I’ve looked a long time to find a candidate like that… A lot of people walk around talking about the Reagan days and the next Reagan. I was with the old Reagan and I can promise you that this man comes as close as anyone to filling those shoes.
I am personally committed to criss-crossing this nation campaigning for strong conservative candidates who support lower taxes, balanced budgets, life, marriage and a strong national defense. Huck PAC has already endorsed 23 candidates and I plan to campaign for as many of them as I can.
In that same link, he has some interesting things to say about the “Green Police” Superbowl commercial. Many try to smear Huckabee as “nanny stater”, but here’s what Huckabee has to say about the “nanny state”:
A car company had a commercial that had an interesting reference to Green Police giving people tickets for their lifestyle choices. For some of us that’s not too far of a stretch for a government growing bigger and bigger by the day under this administration and this Congress.
In fact the Cap and Trade legislation passed by the House (really Cap and Tax) would have some form of a “green cop” in order to monitor companies. It’s a terrible bill and one that would cut into businesses large and small. At a time when we need new jobs, why would we try and penalize the job creators?
Well no one said this Congress was smart…
What we really need is a cop to rein this Congress and administration in. Someone or something to check their power grab and protect the taxpayers of this nation who don’t want their hopes and dreams crippled by a burdensome national debt.
I believe our best chance to stop the madness are the critical November elections.
I think the two former Governors (Huckabee and Palin) would make a fantastic pair for the 2012 Republican Party ticket. Most people are familiar with Sarah Palin’s book and her stand on the issues. For those who weren’t following the Republican primary in 2008, here is an archive of Huckabee’s stand on the issues. I’d love to see either a Palin/Huckabee or Huckabee/Palin ticket in 2012. A recent poll of Alabama Republicans: Huckabee 33, Palin 23, Romney 12.
P.S. For those not familiar with the “Green Police” Super Bowl ad, Michelle Malkin did an excellent post about it.
P.P.S. Here’s the picture of the Reagans that Renee requested…
