5 zingers in Mike Huckabee’s convention speech

TAMPA, Fla. — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s speech to the Republican National Committee included a number of classic Huckabee zingers. Here are five of them:

1. “Tampa has been such a wonderful and hospitable city to us. The only hitch in an otherwise perfect week was the awful noise coming from the hotel room next door to mine. Turns out it was just Debbie Wasserman Schultz practicing her speech for the DNC in Charlotte next week. Bless her heart.”

2. “To those who question how once rivals can now be united, it’s simple: We have Barack Obama to thank.”

3. “Barack Obama said if he couldn’t turn things around in three years, it would be a one-term proposition. It’s been almost four. … Let’s make him a proposition he can’t refuse.”

4. “The Democrats say we ought to give Barack Obama credit for trying. That sounds like the nonsense of giving every kid a trophy for showing up. Friends, we’re talking about leading the country, not playing on a third-grade soccer team!”

5. “I realize this is the man who got a Nobel Peace Prize for what he would potentially do, but in the real world, you get the prize for producing something, not just promising it.”
