Mike Huckabee

GOP Needs Minorities!

Republican presidential candidate and
former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee

AAPP: Well, well, well, even as Project 21, and other black Republicans remain quiet, Jack and Jill PoliticsGOP candidates. You see a number of GOP candidates have said they will not attend the PBS, Tavis Smiley, Republican Candidate Forum at Morgan State.

(AP) and CBS News reports Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee of Arkansas said Friday his fellow Republicans would be making a devastating mistake in the race for the White House if they ignore minorities, unions and other traditionally Democratic groups. Read More HERE.

Asked about Iraq, Huckabee said he agreed with President Bush's decision to reduce U.S. troop levels to pre-surge numbers by next summer as recommended by top commander Gen. David Petreaus.

"I understand the American people want to get out of Iraq, but I also don't believe the American people want to lose. What they want is they want victory. They want it now," he said. "The question is do they want to get out now even if it means that we lose. And I don't think the answer to that is yes."

It's interesting that these Black Republican talking heads have nothing to say about Republicans who hide behind a 1920-1950's "white sheet of excuses" on why they can't talk to black audiences about issues important to blacks.

But these black Republican talking heads can find time to get in front of the Camera to support George W. Bush.
