Huckabee open to being on ticket in 2012

Mike Huckabee isn’t ruling out being on the Republican ticket in 2012, according to an Arkansas news site.

He told reporters Wednesday at the Clinton Library in Little Rock that while he’s not running for president, he is not ruling out running for vice president.

“Everything is still open,” Huckabee, a Republican, said in Little Rock. “I haven’t closed doors because I found out long ago that that’s not a smart thing to do. Then you try to figure out how to open them when they come knocking. I’m not looking for anything, I’m content with what I’m doing. That’s what I plan to do.”

Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas who now hosts a weekend show on Fox News, announced last month that he would not make a bid for the White House, despite some polls showing him leading the pack of GOP contenders.

A spokesman for Huckabee didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

    You people amaze me. No matter who is mentioned, you all have nothing but negative things to say about them. In fact, you never have anything but negative things to say about anything. Period.

    Huckabee would be a perfect VP for either Romney (if the two can stand each other) or Pawlenty, providing some geographic balance, appeal to social conservatives, and an amazing ability to serve as an attack dog while being funny and not coming across as too mean.

    I would support him in either spot on the ticket, preferably the top.

    Huck, TPAW (have to laugh at that name), Romney, Sanatorium.

    None of these white males have a chance in hell. Huck couldn’t win in ought eight. Romney, only running because his father couldn’t win. WTF is a TPAW? Santorium is a guy that still thinks bible school is real, you know Noah took two of all the animals in an ark… Please.

    Who in their right mind would want The Huck for ANYTHING ??????
    I’m a better candidate than The Huck. Here’s why…

    1. Unlike The Huck, I haven’t made multiple pardons and releases of convicted rapists and murderers as governor. Thanks to Huck, these murderers and rapists were able to kill and rape again.
    2. Unlike The Huck, I DID NOT support massive TAX INCREASES as governor and and I DID NOT fail to cut a penny of state spending (sounds like a d-cRAT socialist, doesn’t it?)
    3. Unlike The Huck, I DO NOT SUPPORT for “for the first time in my life I am proud of my country” michelle’s NANNY STATE dementia. (The Huck ALSO wants the government to tell you what to wear, what to eat, what to think, what to drive, what to carry groceries in, what box to check in elections, what to drink, what to do every moment of every day…. just like a lunatic-lefty)
    4. Unlike The Huck, I DO NOT think that Rev. “God Damn America” wright, “You Lie!” hussein’s vile, racist mentor for 20+ years, should not get any focus from conservatives.

    The Huck is one of the MOST PATHETIC choices for president America has ever had (except for “You Lie!” hussein, of course.) IMHO, I’m better, way better than The Huck – and so are YOU.
