Obama Shot – Huckabee
Mike Huckabee just took himself out of the VP running if he ever were in it. Huckabee joked about Barack Obama getting shot at by a gun during a speech at the National Rifle Association. The video is below!
The text of what Huckabee said: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He’s getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he … he dove for the floor.”
Huckabee can be funny but this is politically deaf and dumb. Curtains for Mike Huckabee. It was nice to know you.
Yes, there is a double standard. If Huckabee were talking about Dick Cheney getting shot and wounded on a hunting trip, nobody much would care. But he is talking about Barack Obama, the new black leader, who is the first leader to unify the black community since Martin Luther King Jr. And that community does not forget what happened to MLK 40 long years ago. As a result of history pollsters tell us that black voters have a mortal fear about Obama getting shot. Huckabee will not be able to undo the damage and McCain does not need the distraction.
