Huckabee Scolds the Tea Party
Groups: ‘Politics Is Not Theology’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/15/2013 8:16:37 AM

Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News Channel host Mike Huckabee weighed in on the escalating feud between establishment Republican politicians and conservative activist groups on Saturday. Asked for his thoughts on House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) admonition of the idealized purism advocated by some outside groups, Huckabee sympathized with Boehner saying that governing is more difficult than activism and “politics is not theology.” Huckabee began by saying that Boehner was not scolding the tea party movement but conservative groups that capitalize on that movement. He added that some of those groups appear to have an “all or nothing mindset” and that

Comments:
Social Progressive Huckleberry Hound is a shining example of Constitutional Conservative Republicans DESPISAL of them. The peer down their Socialist Noses at the Voter base and tell them we Must accept Unconditional Surrender to the DemocRats today for a possible Victory tomorrow. Constitutional Conservative Republicans understand the process of compromise and are willing to utilize it to achieve goals. The Social Progressives like Huckleberry Hound´s version of Compromise is to cede by default on Important Issues to the DemocRats.

Why is there no handwringing and concern when the democrat party is filled with aggressive ideologues much more dangerous than any Tea Partier. However, it is the Tea Party that causes moderates to have a case of the vapors. Personally, I do not belong to a Tea Party organization because I believe it is one step away from falling into a political stew much like the present Republican party. I do identify with their politics, but avoid groups because to me that is not what the Tea Party is all about. It is all about individuals with a common philosophy coming together and that happened long before the "organizations" were formed. I am done with joining anything. I believe that is why people steer clear of the Tea Party organizations. They see what happens when groups organize. It´s all about the power of the group. To me the Tea Party is individuality personified.

Way to go Huck - throw away any chance you had before you even hit the road! What kind of an idiot would insult the people he would need? He is showing his true stripes as a moderate and closet progressive, as he backs down with his support of Common Core. Bye, bye Mike.

I am always amazed at the men who think they have what it takes to get elected. Santorum is another one.

Huck and Santorum have constituencies in Iowa and maybe South Carolina. I don´t remember if Arkansas still likes Huckabee. And Santorum can´t seem to stop talking about birth control. "No" to both from here.

Years ago the consensus around ldot was that the Huckster was a bleeding heart republican, a weak sister. At the time I thought the criticism was a bit harsh. As always, the insights one gains here are way ahead of the times and usually spot on. He´s simply playing for gop backing. He may get the party´s backing, but he´ll find scant support in terms of votes with this attitude.

And, btw, ALL or nothing is not what conservatives are hoping for. ALL of what conservatives want would be to shrink the size of government DRAMATICALLY. What conservatives would like to get out of this congress is NO MORE GROWTH in government. Just stop the growth, that pretty much all we can hope for. This latest budge deal moves in the direction of the dims, and that´s what the beef is.

The Tea Party is reacting to decades of a go-along-to-get-along Party who have done nothing to turn the country around even when they were in power because they care more about what the Washington Post thinks than they do their own Republican base and they are terrified of the entitlement class whom they mistakenly believe will vote for them if they hand out the same freebies as the liberals (or at least make sure nothing is taken away). I don´t need to be patronized and lectured to by Mke Huckabee. We are not going to ´shut up´. Boehner and Huckabee need to shut up. The game is up.

For the life of me I can´t fathom why people like Boehner and Huck think they can win anything while insulting and ostracizing the very people they desperately need to get elected. Boehner needs to be reminded hourly that he would not be speaker if the TEA party had not won so many elections in 2010. The House majority came directly from the election of TEA party candidates. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Both of them need to shut up and disappear.

Not that we couldn´t see this coming. There is going to be a war.

I believe the GOP is in the process of writing off their Conservative base. They believe that the future belongs to multiculturalism as do the Democrats. They believe that "white" TEA Party types will be dieing off and will be replaced by immigrants via unbridled immigration and higher birth rates. I´m guessing they will be willing to put up with some losses until that happens. Aside from that, TEA Party types are bad for business as usual with all their talk of bankrupting the next generation, etc... And then there´s all this "Primarying" stuff.

I think (if the GOP gets their way) we are heading towards more socialist "center and left" political parties typical of the UK.

I guess Huckabee is already on board.

I did not/would not/will not ever support a Huckabee campaign.

Maybe my memory has muddied over the years, but didm´t he state that illegal immigration was the penance we must pay for our years of supporting slavery? Seems like I remember that from his Presidential campaign some years ago.

You know why the Republicans are attacking the tea party? Because it can when its plan is to leverage such as Obamacare to pry moderates away from the "radical" Dems in ´14 and ´16. Undoubtedly their polls and focus groups have identified anything related to tea parties as electoral poison in attracting the politically confused. (I remember when the tea party was proud of its unorganized ways - and now that´s lost to Big Tea Party, the big money groups who trademarked the name and staked their purely political turf. Like #3, I´m out of there.) Right now the Republicans are gaining "social proof", i.e. that some trendy folks are sniffing around after the lie of Obamacare and other issues exposed the Dems. Even Jon Stewart is critical these days. Republicans are politicians, not ideologues. Politics is always a fool me once, twice, three times deal. Ideologues are always disappointed and angry.

When you compromise with evil you lose every time, you become more evil. The more you compromise, the more you lose. If you do nothing, evil wins by default. Huck just wants the power, he has no intention of turning things around if he gets it.

They just think the wrong people are spending it.

These people taking on the Tea Party either don´t know what it is, or they are stupidly trying to curry favor with enemies in the press.

Think what you will about Mitt Romney NOW and his 2012 presidential run.

But in 2008, he was on track to become the nominee, when Huckabee got his pannies in a wad over something and teamed with McCain to shut Romney out. I remember it well, and I remember the talk radio comments about Huck´s duplicity and McCain´s inevitable incompetence flying at the time.

Huckabee may win over some who are ´´charmed´´ by his folksiness, but lines are clearly drawn. Our country is ours to recover, if we can.

If we WILL. Those of us like #3 and others expressing similar discontent with organized TEA party groups need a way to communicate with each other - if other lines of communication are broken or disrupted. Any ideas?

KEEP IN MIND that Mudock, yes the FOX news Murdock, is also on the side of the establishment; ergo Huckabee.

I love how they call us purists, because we want to have our government obey the Constitution, exhibit fiscal responsibiity in budgeting and resolve the problem of the unfunded liabilities that continue to grow. Now is that really being a purist? We can see where the next election is heading as the ´establishment´ and their media cohorts see to it that if a Republican government is elected, change will be so minimalist as to accompish nothing. As things are going I won´t be surprised if the base, once again, is unenthusiastic in 2014 and probably less so in 2016. Only time will tell if the writing is already on the wall.

#3 ´To me the Tea Party is individuality personified´.

This is the way freedom works, individual freedom.

The Marxist democrats and RINO´s are about organization like a workers union, or community organizing, communal living of a group as one. All of which lead to a life of servitude to government, not servitude of government to the individual as Our constitution is written.

Individualism does not include group living.

Huckabee should have never run in the first place. Now the loser is going to run again. Right. Must have been on the phone with Rove recently. They can suck up some more of the sheeple money.
The people that are trying to run the TEA party groups are no different that the establishment politicians. They just want the money and power. Forget joining any group. Just work in the background to win peoples minds. If there is no true entity called "The TEA Party", it makes it difficult to attack them directly.
People know if they align themselves with an certain ideology, and will get upset with the bile spewed by the RINO groups. Don´t let them know you are out there by joining a group that can be counted and marginalized. The silent majority works well.

I remember his sleazy attack on Romney/Mormons also when he said Jesus and Satan are brothers. Then you had the cross burning on the mantel which he denied was a cross.Hr also had that nasty consultant that wanted to punch Romney´s face out.

Remember him going to a church in Texas that was anti-Catholic and Mormon.He gave a speech to a business group that did embryonic stem cell research and explained it all by saying he has a mortgage to pay,(he wasn´t rich ike Romney).

I can´t even remember all the Ark. day´s crap.His slew of pardons.Shaking down business for discounts on food,clothes etc.

If the Huckster is observing that a lot of Christians are conservative because they take seriously God´s commandment not to steal, then he is foolish to scold us for it.

I admit that service to God is a core principle for me. That requires me to support the free market, the defense of private property.

When I´m told that redistribution is a core principle for my opposition, I don´t seek compromise. I seek to lead my opponent to repentance for his having chosen core principles that are evil, destructive, unAmerican.

By the way, Huckster, I don´t see you as being on God´s team. Buh-bye!

I can not imagine what is going on in the right sector of our society. The moderate conservatives (RINO´s) seem to be as delusional as the far left liberals (Average Democrats) these days. This is the moment when they should be embracing strong conservative common sense values. Americans are being rudely awakend to the danger imposed by the leftists. Instead, the RINOs seem to be fleeing from them like mice being chased by wild, starving alley cats.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." Now, almost six years after those comments, it´s

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch. "A tortoise isn´t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67-year-old rancher; they

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
