Huckabee talks sense to Republicans

Those in office, he said, “have to show that they are competent to lead,” whether at the governors’ level or city council. That way, Republicans can point to those people as examples to justify why they should be given a chance in the future.

“If we don’t live up to our own principles, then we can hardly criticize the other party for not living up to our principles either,” he said.

Huckabee boiled down the blueprint for his party’s future to a three-step plan: “Clarify what the principles are that we want to govern by; get elected on those principles because we are authentic in believing them; and thirdly, when elected — implement those principles and show the benefits.”

He add, “I think when it comes to politics, the answer is ‘show me the results.’ “

“To take an idea on their kitchen table, sketch it out on a paper napkin, and make it happen. I still want that kind of America for anybody,” he said.


Good points, Mike, but if you make that idea-to-happen there for anybody, soon you’ll have a very chaotic society.
