Huckabee Known as the 'Glass Jaw' to Democrats

Democrat party officials are avoiding any and all criticism of Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee, insiders reveal.

 

The Democratic National Committee has told staffers to hold all fire, until he secures the party's nomination.

 

The directive has come down from the highest levels within the party, according to a top source.

 

Within the DNC, Huckabee is known as the "glass jaw -- and they're just waiting to break it."

 

In the last three weeks since Huckabee's surge kicked in, the DNC hasn't released a single press release criticizing his rising candidacy.

 

The last DNC press release critical of Huckabee appeared back on March 2nd.

 

[DNC Press Release Attack Summary:

 

Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) ? 37% (99 press releases)

Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) ? 28% (74)

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) ? 24% (64)

Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) ? 8% (20)

Governor Mike Huckabee ? 2% (4)]

 

In fact, as the story broke over the weekend that Huckabee said he wanted to isolate AIDS patients back in 1992, the DNC ignored the opportunity to slam the candidate from the left.

 

"He'll easily be their McGovern, an easy kill," mocked one senior Democrat operative Tuesday morning from Washington.

 

"His letting out murders because they shout 'Jesus', his wanting to put 300,000 AIDS patients and Magic Johnson into isolation, ain't even scratching the surface of what we've got on him."

 

The discipline the Democrats have shown in not engaging Huckabee has earned the praise of one former Republican Party official:

 

"The Democrats are doing a much better job restraining themselves than the GOP did in 2003 when Howard Dean looked like he was on the brink of winning the nomination."

 

A close friend to Huckabee explains: "Look, Mike is Hillary Clinton's worst nightmare. They should be squirming."

James Carville? :lol

 

But that is usually how the strategy goes. One has to be the first to frame the opposing candidate in a negative light but framing yourself in a positive light. Bush labelled Kerry (flip-flopper) and framed 04 about terrorism before Kerry could say anything.

 

Whoever picks their candidate early is going to have that as an advantage in this race.

I still say it's a real toss-up as to who actually gets the nomination. Right now Huckabee is leading Iowa, Romney is leading New Hampshire, and Giuliani is ahead in South Carolina.

 

That says a lot as to how divided the GOP is over who should actually be their candidate. Clearly there is not anywhere near a consensus among the voters.
