Huckabee Opts Against 2012 White House Bid

“All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several national polls, said on his Fox News Channel show.

“The past few months have been times of deep personal reflection,” Huckabee said. “Even though I wasn’t actively establishing a campaign organization or seeking financial support to run again, polls have consistently put me at or near the top to be the Republican nominee.”

“But I know that under the best of circumstances, being President is a job that takes one to the limit of his or her human capacity,” he continued. “I can’t know or predict the future, but I know for now my answer is clear and firm: I will not seek the Republican nomination for President this year.”

I’m not really disappointed that Huckabee isn’t running.  While he is a good man, a man of honor, and MUCH preferable to what we’re stuck with right now.  Unfortunately, one who has announced,Ron Paul, unequivocally, that he is running, when most sane people can’t, and won’t vote him.  Sometimes, I just don’t get it.  Maybe that’s a good thing.

Now, who will end up as the nominee?  Who knows.  But hopefully, someone will step forward that we can all get behind.  No, we will never have the perfect candidate, one who will meet everyone’s list of ‘qualifications’.  But seriously, do we really more of the Obama administration? I don’t care if the nominee isn’t who YOU would have preferred. Think of the alternative! “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, and we won’t be able to restore our nation overnight.

We were listening to some talk show on the drive over to Jackson this afternoon, and they played some of the lyrics of this so called poet. Honestly, I don’t care who the TOTUS and FLOTUS invite to their home. The problem I see with this guy, he’s not really a very good poet. On top of that, I kept thinking, what if a white person used the same terms in so called poetry? I would be just as offended by such lyrics from a white “poet”. And what if said ‘white poet’ was invited to the White House by a white president? Don’t you think there would be a bit of offense taken by the general public? Do lyrics that promote the killing of anyone reflect the values of the average American? Or is this just a liberal thing?

Ok, so we headed over to Jackson, to Best Buy, and picked up a new computer.  It’s the same brand, so I thought….hey…no problem.  Pfft!  I can’t find anything on this sucker.  The keyboard is off, and some how, the screen keeps GROWING.  I finally figured out how to shrink it back to normal, but jeeeeez!

Hey…how do you cover up the web cam thingy?  I forgot all the new computers have that nasty thing built in.  I don’t want it!  UGH!

Because of the computer issues, obviously, my usual Saturday Afternoon links is beyond minimal.  Hey….I’m pooped!  Shopping is hard work, y’know!  One thing that annoys me…..  I lost ALL the links I had bookmarked for tons of blogs all over the place.  sigh…  Welp, like the Mr said…”What else have you got to do?”  Yeah yeah….  I guess I can start building ‘em up again.  :?

One plus of the afternoon….we had a really nice lunch over there.  Place called Niko’s.  Greek and Italian.  Mighty tasty stuff!

This thing is gonna take some getting use to.

Last night, we lost our power for a few hours. I turned off my computer, all proper like. When it finally came back on, naturally I turned on my computer. I pushed the button. I pushed the button. I pushed the button. Nothing! Dead as the proverbial doornail. Friday the 13th? Could be. Sadly, it didn’t make a miraulous come back this morning. Blogging from my phone is NOT an option!

I guess a trip to Jackson is in order. sigh….
