Huckabee At CPAC

CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Convention, where the land's most conservative minds meet and discuss and listen to speeches. Everybody has been there Bush, McCain, Romney, but my favorite was Huckabee. For once, he appeared without Chuck Norris standing behind him, that was an improvement. But of all the conservative speeches, I was most amazed with the one made by Huckabee.

He has been called a great communicator and this speech lived up to that billing totally. He pandered to absolutely everyone in the conservative movement. He invoked Reagan, a good move at this event, he patted Bush on the back for his foreign policy, a good move to massage Neocons, he mentioned God, he mention Islamo-fascist, he mentioned...well pick a conservative subject and he dwelt on it in this speech. It was absolutely the best speech one could have given to this crowd, it was brilliant.

Huckabee received applause constantly with every pandering. He gave Neocons a thumper. He gave the Pentagon a thumper. He gave evangelicals a thumper, if they are allowed to have such. In other words, Huckabee massaged the genitals of absolutely every quarter of the conservative movement. I keep saying, but it was BRILLIANT!

He just made his case to stay in the Repub race for the nomination and possibly a nod for the VP position. I feel like he succeeded in gaining more support from CPAC members. Will he be successful? IMO, probably not, but he is doing well and that will give him a large say at the convention. I believe that is his sole intention, to be a king maker, for now. It will also be a boost to his political reputation for later attempts at glory.
