Running for President of the United States is a very unique undertaking that virtually all of us will never even come close to attempting. Gov. Huckabee has spent a lot of time and energy determining if it was God’s will for him to run for President again in 2012, and that is very admirable. Anyone who puts God’s will ahead of their own ambitions or desires is a wise man indeed.
Much, and likely too much, has been made of a supposed everlasting feud between Gov. Mike Huckabee and Gov. Mitt Romney. The perhaps most publicized story involving animosity between the two men occurred back in 2007. The fact that Mike Huckabee apologized to Mitt in person and Mitt quickly accepted the apology was hardly covered at all. I guess the main stream media likes to create/feed into controversy between republicans. The lazy media must’ve been shocked to find out Mitt Romney was one of the first people to call Gov. Huckabee after the announcement:
When Wallace noted he didn’t mention Romney, Huckabee said, ‘No but let me tell you something — I got a wonderful voicemail from Mitt Romney last night, which I thought was very gracious on his part.’… Huckabee insisted if Romney is the nominee he’ll support him, because he’d be better than President Barack Obama. ‘…I will support him if he is our nominee and he very well may be,’ Huckabee said.
The truth of the matter is both men have served their country as governors and have spent a lot of time out of office working to improve our great country.
Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney were close when they both served concurrently as governors of their respective states. Mike Huckabee respected and admired Mitt Romney enough that he asked Mitt to write one of the recommendations for his book “Quit Digging Your Grave With A Knife And Fork”
Here’s what Mitt said:
“Governor Huckabee’s inspiring story is a call to action for anyone who has ever struggled with managing their weight. His good-natured humor and understanding shine through, and his advice is sound, straight-forward, and easy to follow.” — Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachusetts
Mike Huckabee is an inspiration to so many Americans who want to lose weight but sometimes feel helpless to do so for a variety of reasons. One idea that doesn’t get nearly enough talk when it comes to health care is improving preventative care. Health care in this country would cost much much less if the overall health of our citizens improved. It’s an obvious and simple concept, but so much of the health care debate focuses on what to do with the catastrophically ill. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Mike Huckabee rightly brought these ideas to the health care debate, and we are profoundly grateful as Americans that he did. No health care plan should be considered complete without also improving preventative medicine.
Even more important is Mike’s tireless effort promoting the pro-life cause. Speaking for myself, the prospect of getting Roe vs. Wade overturned is why I became active in politics in the first place. I would never even consider supporting a candidate for President who would nominate a Supreme Court Justice who would uphold Roe vs. Wade. Thanks to the announcement of a couple pro-choice Supreme Court Justices that they won’t retire until after the 2012 election, we have a great chance to finally get Roe vs. Wade repealed. We believe Mitt Romney to be our best chance to elect a pro-life President.
In the 2008 and 2010 elections, both Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee worked tirelessly to elect conservatives and fortunately their work paid larger dividends in 2010. Hopefully 2012 will be an even greater election for conservatives. Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee have taken turns leading the national polls for over a year and both match up well against President Obama. We’ve all said that Mike Huckabee would’ve been a far superior president than President Obama and we would’ve supported him with great ease should he have been the GOP nominee in 2008 or 2012. Goal #1 has always been and must remain that President Obama is a 1-term President! Any supporters of Mike Huckabee are welcomed with open arms to join us here at Mitt Romney Central or even to just stop by and chat/see what’s going on from time to time. Together we can Bring America Back and help people who’ve lost faith to Believe in America again!
