Huckabee: Dems Pentagon request a sign of desperation

Democratic officials recently sought information from the Pentagon on nine prominent Republicans who could challenge President Obama in 2012, according to report by ABC News Wednesday.

Among them was Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who mounted an unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008 but has since remained cagey about whether he plans to abandon a cushy Fox News gig to take another shot at the White House.

    As much of a disappintment as Barack Obama has been,the Republicans are even worse.They're all catering to the MIC(military-industrial-complex) and that's why eveything is such a mess!

    Daniel. What you wrote doesn't make sense. Democrats have abused their power in an attempt to gather informatiom about republicans from the Pentagon! There should be a congressional investigation. This is a Watergate type of act without having to break in wearing masks or carrying flashlights because you have the keys and it's broad daylight outside.

      Jim sounds like you've been watching to many cartoons....Daniel was just making a point...no matter how bad everyone thinks President Obama is...the REPUBLICANS are WORSE!!
      This has nothing to do with President Nixon and the Watergate issue...Please wake up its 2010...what do you think history is repeating itself?

    No surprise! The Dems are using every dirty trick in the book, to try to keep the community organizer in power long enough to put his radical agenda in place and in play.

    Jim-dirty tricks like mailing out pre-completed ballot forms to seniors, tricks like, while pretending to be democrats, telling latino voters not to vote as a protest? Get with it! The republicans are trying to steal yet ANOTHER election and dimwits like you fall into lockstep. It's hardly surprising that Huckabee bears a marked resemblance to Gomer Pyle

  5. really?

    Wow. You speak as though the republicans were holier than thou.

    The big trick was thinking there were WMD to waste thousands of our soldiers' lives and talking of death panels.

    You have to be kidding. The Republicans would never do such a thing given the chance. Oops, they have done similar things during their terms in office. Many people have been on their lists.
