Will Huckabee run? Well he answered that question tonight.
Mike Huckabee may be a bit of a buffoon but he’s not a bad guy. For the first time in his life he’s making some good money. Before his presidential run in 2008 he had been a Baptist preacher and the governor of Arkansas neither one of which is a high paying position. He now has a million plus dollar a year gig on FOX so why would he want to run for president? That’s apparently the way he saw it too.
Mike Huckabee said Saturday there would be no sequel to his surprisingly strong 2008 White House bid, in which he won the Iowa Republican caucus and finished second in the primaries to Sen. John McCain.
“All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several national polls, said on his Fox News Channel show.
Good move Mike and I don’t begrudge you the millions you will make. But save some of it because the fame won’t last forever. Or maybe it will – this Dirty F&%king Hippy actually enjoys your show sometimes. Take the money and run while you can which means you don’t run for president. I don’t agree with you on much of anything but there is a part of me that likes you and wishes you the best Mike.
