This week, presidential candidate Huckabee condemned President Lincoln for allowing blacks to gain US citizenship. Does this type of message help you understand the difference between conservative and progressive?
This isn't an accurate depiction of what he said.
He was speaking spec about judicial review. he said that since lincoln ignored the Dredd Scott ruling, we could ignore the gay marriage ruling. He then said that lincoln just ignoring the ruling w/o
Judicial review by the other branches of gov't was the problem, not that he disagreed with going against Dredd Scott.
I'm really annoyed I had to stick up for huckabee.
Do you have a link to the transcript/video?
When did he say this?
Last week. He's referenced it a couple of times, Lincoln violating the law to allow citizenship for blacks. The sad thing is it's not even historically accurate.
About that link? Any luck pulling it out of your ass, errr I mean finding it?
I'll apologize if I'm wrong. Doubt it though.
So, from what I can tell, this poll has been up for a couple of hours (if not more). No links?
Going to call horseshit and I don't even like Huck.
Yeah, I think the silence says it all. Kind of disappointing to see a deliberate attempt to deceive folks. Not sure I see the point.
I'd be all over that crap if I had it.
Whatever though. Smells funny in here.
Guys... If you want a link, open your browser. It's in the news: Huckabee stating Lincoln violated the law to allow citizenship for blacks. Don't get caught up in the subject lines.
Not sure why you won't back up your claim. I did "open up my browser" and can't seem to find anything to support what you say. If you won't share a link, could you at least share the keywords to search to get to the same story?
The closest I could find so far is: "as in the case of the Dred Scott decision in 1857 that said black people weren't human beings, Abraham Lincoln refused to adhere to that because he said it wasn't a just law."
That the only platform that the GOP can come up with is to attack issues 150 years out of date?
Nah, I knew that.
And there still hasn't been any proof that he actually said it.
Unless you can provide proof or story that we can read stop spewing the BS. I just like one both sides of the political spectrum throws up BS and can't back the words up.😈👿
Lance: it's in the news. I'm know you read it.
Actually I haven't seen it. I get news from four different sources, and I didn't see anything about this.
Honestly it sounds like an Onion story. Sorry smart, if you can't provide a link to back it up I have to think you pulled that out of a deep, dark, biased hole.
Please watch something other than msnbc
So Huckabee didn't say it?
Not that I can find. The poll poster has yet to offer a source, so we don't know for sure.
l can't imagine him actually saying that. Something must be taken wildly out of context.
It helps me understand the difference between normal and idiot. Every ideology and party has a little bit of both. To say that it's present on only one side of the scale is just false.
I recall him saying something about ignoring the SC decision about gay marriage like Lincoln did about blacks, but I don't remember anything about not wanting blacks to be citizens.
Not at all. Any fool can say that.
I wouldn't tag The Huckster as conservative. He's radical right wing just as not all liberals are progressives. Please be more accurate when throwing barbs. Also, not that I don't believe it, but a citation would be grand.
Uh, you think he's radical right wing?
Hell, I think he's pretty RINO if you ask me.
Do you have a link?
Holy turds, he did?!? Oh man, I gotta see this. Do you have a link?
I really doubt he actually said that. The media has a history of taking things completely out of context, I doubt this case is any different.
