The Huckabee Line

I just watched Governor Huckabee increasing the fear ante by using a genocidal hypothetical should we withdraw our troops. This means the Republicans have already made any negative outcome associated with a US withdrawal from Iraq with be the fault of the Democrats. A prediction that will come true no matter when we leave.

Now, the Republicans feel they have the rational for not acting in the will of the American people. "It might come down to doing what is right, in spite of what the polls say. We cannot leave the Middle East to a ethnic cleansing or genocide," Huckabee said. That is fear with a capital "F." You don't get anymore phonier than that; I just hope the American people can see this overused tactic.

We need to tell the president and the Republicans to save the fear for a useful Halloween. For once we must ask the Republicans to say what they mean without fear. I am willing to bet they will change the subject quick; real quick.

At every opportunity, we must give our representatives who are doing what they were put into office to do our support. That support does not always have to come in the form of money. If you dispel a talking point, deliver inspiration, or volunteer you time, you will be doing your part to right the wrongs of the pass 6 to 12 years.
