Mike Huckabee's new TV ad

Huck's team just put this out on Fox News Sunday this morning.



What do you think?

IMHO, it does reach out to the 18-35 year old segment, it's funny, and it's entertaining. Kind of like the Richardson ads, applying for a job.

I hope, however, there are more ads to come that show off his natural leadership and integrity, showing the contrast between him and Plasto-Romney and Rudy-911.

I'm not gonna support Huck in the caucus, but I've gotta give him props for this commercial. It's drop dead funny, and it's nice to see that both Huck and Chuck have a sense of humor.

When you scratch the surface and start looking at what Hucksterbee actually did in Arkansas and how he governed, a bunch of conservative supporters are going to be in for a big disappointment. He's a terrible hybrid of George Bush and Bill Clinton. neither your wallet and especially our Liberty won't be safe with this man. He's got a tyrannical nanny streak a mile wide. Not to mention his history of corruption in Arkansas.

People are just getting suckered by personality and aren't looking at substance or his disturbingly dirty and tyrannical record.

That was a funny ad . . . but I'm not sure if it’s what Huck needs.

Although most of the campaigns could afford to lighten up a bit, Huckabee needs to treat serious issues seriously. He's already got the image of the "funny guy" in the race. People like the funny guy, but don't always want to pull the lever for them as our country's chief executive.

I’m sure Huck will get more serious in the future with his ads, but do I think he made a blunder here with being so flippant on an important issue that he’s viewed as being weak on . . . immigration.

He said during a recent debate, while everyone else was having fun with thier one liners bagging Hillary, that having Hillary as president “was no laughing matter.” . . . but I guess securing our border is to Huck.

Again, I think it was a very funny and appealing ad, but Huck should have found a better topic to joke about IMO.

It is a laughing matter for Hucksterbee. He was bought and paid for by Tyson and the agrigiants who depend of illegal immigrant slave labor. He's all for it. In fact he wants you to pay for scholarships for their kids. Straight from his mouth:

Help spread the word about Mike Huckabee!

On December 29th there will be a national effort to raise awareness about Mike Huckabee and his campaign for President.

Grab your signs, shirts and other Mike Huckabee for President materials and get out. Run, walk, bike, march or drive around in a public place where you live. Let's make sure that anyone that travels on December 29th sees a Mike Huckabee for President sign.

Yes Marc,

"Help spread the word about Mike Huckabee"

Like
Robert Novak calling Huckabee a "False Conservative"

Like the clearer and clearer reality that a vote for Huckabee is a vote for Rudy

Like his repeated pattern of fibbing about his prior record (and getting caught in it more than once)

Like the conservative National Review Editorial Board
slamming Huckabee's record and platform

I wholeheartedly agree that we need to get the word out on Mike Huckabee!

Don't you wonder how many paid staff or paid "super volunteers" the Romney campaign has going out all over the blogs to do a hack job on Huck? It's, umm, oh, transparent.

I'm a big Romney supporter . . . but I've never been paid and don't want to be. I've actually contributed to Romney's campaign (click on my profile to see what I do for a living . . . it ain't work for any campaign).

McCain has had paid bloggers . . . Romney ZERO.

There's a lot of us grassroots Romney bloggers who have been at this for a LONG time (started my blog back in April 2006) . . . and none of us are paid as "anon" suggests (ironically, campaign staffers are the ones most likely to post on blogs anonymously . . . but that couldn't be you, right?)

To Mr. Fuller:

I'm sure you're a nice guy, graduate of Brigham Young University (isn't that Romney's alma mater)and a wealthy doctor, and I'm glad you have a hobby. But it still seems odd that you can't find a single Huckabee post that doesn't have a string of anti-Huckabee/pro-Romney comments. What happened to all the other campaigns and their volunteers? And the tone of some of the comments are really vicious.

I'm not a big Huckabee fan, but all the anti-Huckabee trolling by the Romney people makes it very unlikely that I would ever, ever vote for Mitt Romney, and I'm a regular Republican. A good prospect with all that microtargeting mail. The campaign got me interested but Romney's campaign of mean is not working. It makes me think that's what Romney is truly about, winning at any and all costs.

Anon,

I agree some of the comments left by pro-Romney people are vicious and I don't condone them. However, none of us can control who actually supports our candidate. Case in point proving that would be the "TrustHuckabee PAC" that has been doing pro-Huck and anti-everyone else push-polling in Iowa and New Hampshire . . . surely that's more disturbing to you that a few vitriolic comments on some low-traffic blogs, eh?

The volume of the comments is attributable to our non-campaign endorsed nor sponsored organizational efforts (plus the fact that most of us have been doing this for quite a while . . . as opposed to the vast majority of Huck supporters who have only been on his bandwagon for a few weeks)

I'll take credit and blame for the volume of comments. I highlight many of my blog entries on the national Romney blogs (due to the importance of Iowa). Another blogger in California has taken it upon himself to canvass the Iowa blogs and draw attention to those dealing with the GOP race here. I've got many of these blogs in my blogroll too. My site traffic has been spiking recently as people are getting more and more excited about Romney and wanting to make a difference for him in Iowa.

Seriously, we have a list of 79 non-campaign related Romney bloggers, and there's plenty more who like to canvass blogs and leave comments.

I can assure you that Romney's staffers have better things to do with their time than leave comments on these blogs. It's grassroots all the way baby!

P.S. Just for the record, I'm actually a "poor doctor". I'm just a few months out of training and still up to my ears in debt (though you're towing the Huckabee anti-wealth, anti-Wall Street, pseudo-populist line quite admirably)
