He Has Decided.

The time for speculation is about to intensify: for about 27 hours! Then it will be all over but the shoutin’. Governor Mike Huckabee has made up his mind. He will announce tomorrow night whether he is running for president of the United States. His family knows. Nobody else does.

Millions may be disappointed. If he runs, all those supporters of Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, and Tim Pawlenty who had hoped for a much easier ride to the White House may just leave the country. They staked all their hopes in their own confidence “The Huck” wasn’t running. Now what will they talk and write about?

Of course, some of us will be disappointed if he does not run. But most of us never claimed with any certainty that he was running. We’ve been mostly talking about his leadership, and how he would stand head and shoulders over many of the other candidates. Unlike those fools who claim to be Republicans but said they would rather vote for Obama than Huckabee, we will find another candidate to support, if need be.

If he doesn’t run, he will likely be heavily lobbied for his endorsement, though most of us supporters, unlike the caricature, are quite able to make up our own minds.

If he runs, he will have none of the disadvantages that all those who knew better than the candidate himself claimed. He has got plenty of time, will raise plenty of money, and will attract all the staff he needs to run an effective campaign. And he will back to Iowa.

God’s people will be fine. We know that it is God who sets up kings and puts them down again. Our world will not be broken if he runs, nor will we fantasize about a perfect world should he run.

More important than finding out who shot “JR” or watching the last episode of M*A*S*H,

we will sit back, relax and watch the announcement for ourselves on Fox News at 7 pm Central Time, tomorrow night.

      1. Shane, the reporters you hire here at CT are on it like a duck on a June bug.   No worries.

  1. David, please don’t judge all Sarah Palin supporters by what you read on one blog. There are a lot of us who support Gov. Palin who have no idea if Huckabee is going to run or not. Just as there are a lot of Palin supporters who don’t know whether she will run, though we hope and pray that she will.

  2. I think he’s running.  If he wasn’t going to run, why announce now?  And why even “officially” announce at all that you’re not going to run, especially after building up some suspense?  If you want people to keep watching your show but you’re not going to run for President, just stay mum about it as long as possible.  From what I can see, the idea that he ain’t gonna run just doesn’t make much sense.    

    Of course, I’m still angry that he wimped out on decrying the repeal of DADT. He was as quiet as a mouse on the issue–maybe he’s afraid of all the gay activists. But anyway, he’s definitely the least bad of the Republican frontrunners IMO.

      1. Oh, I didn’t know that.  Well, that helps some.  But it still doesn’t restore my faith in him to what it used to be.    I contributed to his campaign last time, and that won’t be happening again, even though I will vote for him if he’s the eventual Republican nominee.  

    1. Why were you surprised that he didn’t decry the repeal of DADT?   After all, he told Larry King back in 2008 that a queer would be welcome to work in his Presidential administration (Sec. of Defense, maybe??) and that he had welcomed those in such rebellion to God, as Governor of Arkansas.  It should be noted that he also appointed Planned Parenthood’s no. one Ark. legislator to his staff  (upon her retirement from the legislature) as the legislative liaison for his office…thus screening all pro-life bills between him and the legislature.

  3.  Josh, I’m with you, man.  I said “all those who” limiting it to those who were hoping – a subset of Palin, Romney, and supporters of other candidates.
