Keeping Our Honor

On Wednesday night, at the GOP presidential debate, Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee made a great statement during his exchange with Texas Representative Ron Paul. He was confronting Paul on his call for immediate withdrawl from Iraq.

"Congressman, whether or not we should have gone to Iraq is a discussion for historians, but we're there. We bought it because we broke it," Huckabee said. "We've got a responsibility to the honor of this country and the honor of every man and woman who has served in Iraq and our military to not leave them with anything less than the honor they deserve."

Paul's pathetic response is one reason he cannot and will not ever be president. "The American people didn't go in. A few people advising this administration, a small number of people called the neoconservatives, hijacked our foreign policy. They are responsible, not the American people."

And Huckabee's brilliant retort came firing back, "Congressman, we are one nation. We can't be divided. We have to be one nation under God. That means if we make a mistake, we make it as a single country."

Paul answered, "When we make a mistake, it is the obligation of the people — through their representatives — to correct the mistake, not continue the mistake. We have dug a hole for ourselves and we have dug a hole for our party. We are losing elections, and we are going down next year if we don't change it."

Huckabee replied loudly, "Even if we lose elections, we should not lose our honor."

God bless you, Governor Huckabee, you certainly impressed this voter.

The left seems to feel that if the man in the White House is not one of them, he is not their president and they can disrespect and disown him. But, we are a single nation, under God, and all the empty wishes of the left will not make it otherwise. The juvenile mentality of the liberals is, if we don't play by their rules, they're taking the ball and going home. Too bad, Lefty, we all own the ball and we all live in the same home. Get over it.
