Although it doesn’t quite carry as much weight as Oprah’s endorsement of Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee’s presidential bid just got a shot in the arm. Actually, it was more like a windmill kick to the opponent’s face!
Chuck Norris announced his endorsement for the former Arkansas governor in a column posted on WorldNetDaily.com. Norris said that he likes Huckabee because of Huck’s upbringing, family values and the fact that he’s an avid outdoorsman.
Though Giuliani might be savvy enough to lead people, Fred Thompson wise enough to wade through the tides of politics, McCain tough enough to fight terrorism and Romney business-minded enough to grow our economy, I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
He even compares Huckabee to King David.
As with the other candidates, Huckabee has, and will continue to have, his hecklers: “He hasn’t raised enough money.” “He’ll never beat Hillary.” “Our society is too prejudice and paranoid to vote for a once Baptist minister.” “He’ll never out-race the top four Republican candidates.”
I was thinking about these types of comments the other day when I recalled another leader in ancient times that didn’t match up in the line up: King David. Seven men were poised and paraded for the position of king, but David was left in the field shepherding because he wasn’t “a frontrunner in the polls.” They overlooked the best because they were too busy judging by outward appearance. But God appointed David king.
Huh? Was there some secret meeting involving an elderly prophet, Mike Huckabee and a sheepskin full of olive oil that we all somehow missed? Is Huckabee going to take down Al Qaeda with a slingshot? Or will he just unleash Chuck?
So, there you have it fellow citizens. Chuck says, “Vote for Huck!” And if you know what’s good for you, you’ll do what Chuck says!
