In a fine display of political diplomacy, Presidential wanna be Huckabee is retracting his statement thus, inhaling his words in that there should be a federal ban against smoking in indoor workplaces. 

 Huckabee’s campaign, however, is backtracking. In its statement to The Hill, the campaign stated, “At a Lance Armstrong cancer forum last August, Governor Huckabee said that if Congress presented him with legislation banning smoking in public places, he would sign it, because he would not oppose the overwhelming public support that such a congressional vote would reflect. However, since such sentiment for federal legislation doesn’t exist at this time, and since he has said that the responsibility for regulating smoking initially lies with the states, the governor believes that this issue is best addressed at the local and state levels.” 

I expect Dr. Phil to backpedal on poor Britney Spears. I do not expect backpedaling from someone who is asking me to vote for them as President of the United States of America. What do you want to bet Huckabee’s taking money from tobacco lobbyists, or at the very least he has obvious partiality to the tobacco industry. He’s done so before, although his memory seems to be failing…

While Huckabee was serving as lieutenant governor of Arkansas back in 1994, R.J. Reynolds helped finance a nonprofit organization that paid Huckabee to crisscross the country and attack Hillary Clinton’s health-care plan. [sic–not that I minded that!] The tobacco giant’s role was kept secret for years – Huckabee neglected to report this income on his ’94 state financial disclosure form – but now it’s all coming out. A former Huckabee political adviser – who doubled as a consultant to R.J. Reynolds – is talking openly about how the tobacco giant put money in Huckabee’s pocket. . . . The company has now confirmed it.

But here’s the good part: Huckabee claimed last Friday that he didn’t know he was taking big-tobacco money while he was on the public payroll. His former adviser, J.J. Vigneault . . . recalls that Huckabee met with R.J. Reynolds officials in his Little Rock apartment. Vigneault is quoted as saying: “There’s no way he could not have known about the money from R.J. Reynolds. If he’s saying he didn’t know about the Reynolds money, he’s been less than truthful.”No thanks. Not only wasn’t he truthful but he overlooked a serious error in not reporting the income. Mmmmm, I think that is campaign fraud, no? Wait, he could just give the money back like the Clinton’s have done. Just last month, Presidential wanna be Hillbilly’ cap said she would return about $850,000 to about 260 donors who had been recruited by Norman Hsu. WordPress would run out of memory in listing President Clinton’s serious errors in judgement.

Huckabee’s campaign is going up in smoke and I hope it takes Hillary Clinton’s political career with it.

Another arcanum revealed.

Welcome to the World of Ahrcanum- secret secrets.  Near as I can tell, it is all a crock of $hit but I get a $hitload of enjoyment ranting about it . 

No one gives a direct answer anymore to anything.  Watch the news and you’ll see what I mean.  Never a direct answer during an interview, and half the time the answer is just a rehash of the question or totally not relevant.  And enough of the stupid TelePrompter!

This is no longer a campaign for Obama, it is a campaign for survival of America to continue as the leader of the free world.  With the election won by Obama and his promise of a transparency in government, I think it is only fair that if you voted for him (and even if you did not) you get the transparency he promised. We might not like the outcome, but at the very least America deserves answers that are not in some mumbo, jumbo, hodge, podge round about means that infers I’ll find out what your intentions are –after your appointed cabinet members retool what is convenient upon public opinion.  

My God, recently releasing classified documents regarding torture plans or torture inaction maybe an abomination and an invitation for terrorists to sip coffee and eventually be released on U.S. Soil- but at least we now know exactly where O stands.  There is your transparacy- Gitmo released detainees could be your neighbors.  See ya at Starfuks.

“I still believe the Lewinsky investigation was way off from the focus of what Whitewater was, which turned out to be nothing at the end of the process. And I think that there were people who were determined as political opponents to not allow his presidency to succeed.”

“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran… In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”  Hillary Clinton Asked by Chris Cuomo on ABC News’ Good Morning America about what she would do as president if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons.

“Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“He’s not sleeping in my bed. We set that rule down long ago.” — Barack Obama sets out firm policy guidelines for new American first pooch, Bo.

“You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

“I’ve got two daughters, nine years old and six years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” Barack Obama , Town Hall Meeting in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, March 29, 2008.

“I did. It’s not something that I’m proud of. It was a mistake as a young man, but you know? I mean not going to — I never understood that line. The point was to inhale. That was the point. Barack Obama  About his marijuana use, When asked “did you inhale?”, November 2007.  At least it set him apart from Bill Clinton who also stated “No really, “I didn’t have sexual relations with that woman. 

Bailouts- nahhh- let’s call them stimulus plans.  So much for secrets told but many more to be discovered.   It seems, it is all about the Ahrcanum.  It’s those secrets and reading between the lines that get posted about here.
