Alas, Mike Huckabee
by Rense Johnson, Chairman
Citizens for Term Limits … for a fresh Congress!
March 13, 2008
During the pre-election Republican contest we kept all the pro-Huckabee material we had on our website, believing that Huck was the best man for the job.
As a fan recently, I stood in line twice; first to buy his book, second to get signed with a signature I could not read. I have even read half the book.
On two occasions he has told his TV Listeners that he is for term limits.
Wow! Sounds great? Well, not quite.
On both occasions I tried to contact him without success, to tell him I know a teeny bit about the term limitation issue – having been at it since our Louisiana success in the nineties.
It turns out he has no interest in me because I don’t send him money.
Those who know me know that I take nothing for my efforts at Citizens for Term Limits. And have a large sum of my own funds invested in it. Why? Because it is the only way to recapture our country – for our children and their unborn issue.
But back to Governor Huckabee and most recently when on his TV program he proposed an un-thought out scheme of eight year term limits. If he had asked me I could have saved him some embarrassment. His proposed eight-year limits are dumb.
If he wants eight years in the House of Representatives. It would be workable, although we prefer six years. But Senate terms are for six years, not eight. Does he want to change the Constitution to lengthen existing Senate terms by a third – from six years to eight?
Tilting at Mike Huckabee’s windmill, amplified by his television exposure, is nothing but a distraction that takes the public’s eye off the ball – off the goal, which is to recapture our nation from career politicians.
Should a man be considered for president who has no comprehension of the vital priority of bringing about a Citizen Congress?—A legacy to our children?
Sorry, Governor, but sadly, I for one, have lost confidence in you.
