Kos has decided to start his own little revolution. He wants all the Democrats, Obama supporters I imagine, to come out in full force for born on third base, with a silver spoon in his mouth, Mitt Romney. His rational,
Kos: Meanwhile, poor Mitt Romney, who’s suffered back-to-back losses in the last week, desperately needs to win Michigan in order to keep his campaign afloat. Bottom line, if Romney loses Michigan, he’s out. If he wins, he stays in.
Why will this political coup fail miserable? Well kos found the answer in his follow up post.
Romney’s people said “I want republican votes”.
Huck said “I want democrats to vote for me”.
True story, just now, Situation Room.
Chances are that there will be cross over Democrats in Michigan, yet unlike the kos fantasy they well come out strong for Huckabee.
Many Democrats and liberals don’t get, and certainly underestimate Huck the Hick. They only see a socially conservative hick from the backwoods of Arkansas. What they don’t see is the rhetoric of economic populism, and the union and NEA endorsements. This is what scares the shit out of his Republican counterparts, even more so than an Obama.
The Democratic Party has long forsaken the class war for a cultural one. Huckabee even more so than Edwards has put class and economic populism back on America’s dinner table. As Democrats continue to move further to the right economically, a Huckabee will become more populist and consequently more attractive to the working class.
