Quote O' The Day: Mike Huckabee

The Stars and Bars entered the presidential campaign today, as Mike Huckabee was queried in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina about the Confederate flag emblem on the state flag:

“You don’t like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag. In fact,if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we’d tell them what to do with the pole; that’s what we’d do.”

Love it!

I'm still undecided on Huckabee as a president, but he wins hands down as the best standup comedian in the race!

He's a good ol' boy. Not presidential enough. He's got chutzpah and I'd like to have a beer with him. I'm not voting for him though.

Interesting-He doesn't want people from out of state telling him what to do with his flag, but he wants to tell people in the state of Mass what to do with their gays...

Hi Anonymous..
What we have here on your part is what's known as a specious
(false) argument.

What the people of Arkansas OR Massachusetts want to do with something like a state flag, taxes or highway speed limits does not affect the residents of other states.

Something that would create legalized marriages recognized in one state but not in another OBVIOUSLY does infringe on other's rights.

The Constitution recognizes this, in the`full faith and credit' provision.

That's why a Massachusetts drivers license is recognized in all fifty states..because unless you're going to put a fence around the state, residents of Masachusetts have the right to travel and reside in the other 49 states.An dthat's why crimninals who comit a crime inone state and flee to another juridiction can be extradicted.

I realize that a factual argument isn't as much fun as a nifty lil' soundbite,but there it is.
