Huckabee Won’t Back Down From ‘Uncle Sugar,’ Would Like Some Money, Please

Huckabee Won’t Back Down From ‘Uncle Sugar,’ Would Like Some Money, Please

A day after former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee sparked controversy with his bizarre remark that Democrats insult women “by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government,” the failed presidential candidate, now-talk radio host is refusing to back down.

In a grammatically challenged email to supporters that was also posted on his Facebook page, Huckabee pointedly declined to back away from “Uncle Sugar.”

“I am apparently the worst conservative ever or at least the most annoying one according to the left wingers in Washington today,” Huckabee wrote. “My remarks to the RNC today were immediately jumped on and blown sky high by hand-wringing, card carrying liberals from coast to coast, some of them in the media.”

“Guess what liberals? If you can’t stand to look at yourself in the mirror, then get ready for more of this talk, because conservatives are going to continue to fight back against your destructive policies towards women and families,” he continued.

The message then goes on to ask supporters to “do something urgent”:

“Please give an immediate donation to my political action committee Huck PAC in any amount you can afford,” Huckabee writes. He then goes on to ask for money three more times (the final paragraph of the letter reads simply, “Join me tonight with a donation”).

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus is one conservative who seems unlikely to write a check to Huck PAC. Although he has defended Huckabee’s right-wing views on social issues in the past, once insisting that he could be “a model for a lot of people in our party,” Priebus — who urged Republicans to soften their rhetoric and “be conscious of developing a forward-leaning vision for voting Republican that appeals to women” in his disastrously failed 2012 “autopsy” — declined to endorse Huckabee’s unique take on women’s libidos.

“I don’t know what he was talking about,” Priebus said on Friday. He added that Huckabee’s remarks were “sort of a goofy way of using some phrases,” and that he would have phrased it differently.

New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown released a new attack ad on Monday, accusing incumbent senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and President Barack Obama of causing the border crisis with their “pro-amnesty policies.” The ad, titled “Secure Borders,” is the first by a 2014 Senate candidate to politicize the huge numbers of unaccompanied minors crossing the

Poll: Americans Strongly Reject Impeaching, Suing Obama

Over the past several weeks, Republicans have increasingly insisted that something has to be done about President Barack Obama’s tyrannical abuse of power. According to a new poll, the rest of the country completely disagrees. According to a CNN/ORC poll released Friday, the vast majority of Americans oppose plans to sue or impeach the president.

    I love it how these Republicans offend 51% of the electorate. Keep them women barefoot and pregnant.

        Huckabee said: “Republicans no longer accept listening to Democrats talk about a ‘war on women,’” he said. “Republicans don’t have a war on women. [We] have a war for women — for them to be empowered to be something other than victims of their gender.” If the Republicans have a war for women, why do they continue to pass laws that impact a woman’s health care and reproductive choices? Do they not think a woman is capable of making those decisions for herself? If they value a woman so much why did they not vote to pass the Violence Against Women Act or the Equal Pay Act? If as Huckabee states they have a war for women, why didn’t Republican leaders denounce Limbaugh when he called Sandra Fluke a Slut and a Whore? Why when they have hearings concerning women’s health issues, they only have men on the committee and only men testifying. Why do Republicans blame women for what they perceive as the decay of family values because they are working outside the home and in some cases put off having children.
        If you want to show women how much you respect them, than stop trying to control their health care choices, their
        reproductive choices and stop allowing them to be verbally and physically abused and valuing them less than a man.

          EXACTLY! What part of the brain do you think they are using that blocks their memory?

        • mike

          It is pretty simple, not with taxpayers money. We know women are just as good and many times better than men and want them to have the choices they want.
          As to the Equal Pay Act, go read the Department of Labors findings.
          As usual you give only half truth. There were two panels the first panel were clergy dealing with freedom of religious and conscience. The second panel did include two women.

          I find it interesting that full weight of the Obama administrations coming down on the “The little sisters of the Poor” for just the reason the first panel met. Alert, SCOTUS has given them an exemption for now. So you see now why the first panel was important.
          Rush paid for his use of words.
          I have never heard of one Republican ever saying the decay of the family values was the womens fault. Give me a name that specifically made those accusations.
          NM and other main stream media have misquoted Gov. Huckabee and that was my point. Should he have said it the way he did, No!!! Does the Democratic party want women to become their “Julia’s, Yes!!

          • disqus_fsqeoY3FsG

            Why not with taxpayers money? No Republicans do not want to women to make their own choices – look at the anti-abortion laws passed by Republican controlled states in 2012 and 2013. I respect those who do not believe in abortion – so I would stand and fight for their decision not to have an abortion. Why don’t Republicans respect a woman’s decision to have an abortion, she and her partner know what is best for them. What do you mean “as usual you give only half truth” – you don’t know me. From an article written April 2011: “House GOP leadership is not likely to bring the Paycheck Fairness Act up for a vote any time soon, but House Democrats used a procedural move to force them to go on record opposing the bill on Thursday. Recent Census Bureau data shows that full-time working women make 77 cents for every dollar men make per year. The Paycheck Fairness Act, which DeLauro has introduced in eight consecutive Congresses, would expand the Equal Pay Act to close certain loopholes and allow employees to share salary information with their coworkers. It would also require employers to show that pay disparities between their male and female employees are related to job performance, not gender.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/11/paycheck-fairness-act_n_3063804.html

            All the “Little Sisters of the Poor’ had to do was sign a form. Freedom of religion is a two way street – they have no right to force their religious beliefs on everyone else. They were not supplying the birth control, the insurance company is. You are aware that doctors prescribe contraception for medical reasons. If a woman is under going treatment for breast cancer, she certainly should not become pregnant. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): is a hormonal imbalance. Endometriosis: Most girls with endometriosis have severe cramps or pelvic pain during their menstrual cycle. Lack of periods (“amenorrhea”) from low weight, stress, excessive exercise, or damage to the ovaries from radiation or chemotherapy. Birth control can be administered to prevent ectopic pregnancy, iron deficiency anemia, certain cancers and ovarian cysts. So Religious leaders, politicians and total strangers it is not always about SEX, it can also just be about a woman’s health issues. Rush Limbaugh did not pay – he was not denounced by the Republican leaders. You better start listening to Rubio, Cruz, Bachman, Gohmert, Beck, Limbaugh, Tony Perkins, and Santorum to name a few. Democratic party supports women and does not demean them the way Republicans do.

          • mike

            I see you didn’t read the Department of Labors report and if you knew anything about The little sisters of the Poor you would have known signing that letter would have gone against their religious values.

          • disqus_fsqeoY3FsG

            I am aware of their claim that signing the form would go against their religious values. But why do their religious values trump someone’s health care? So when you write pompously winded comments it is acceptable, but when someone with an opposing point of view responds at length you discard the content and disrespect the individuals right to express their point of view. Typical Republican when no argument – turn to insults. Have a good weekend

          • mike

            They are practicing their religion and the govt. has not right to interfere, period.

            So little touchy feel person is upset when another person doesn’t think the post deserves a response and that is disrespectful. Thanks for the good chuckle.

            You are a whiner like Obama, using the excuse Fox and Limbaugh are why his administration is failing, what he doesn’t mention is that almost every other media outlet is kissing his ass. His administration is failing for one reason: His Policies.!!! He is so incompetent.

          • disqus_fsqeoY3FsG

            I normally don’t indulge prigs like you, but I will make this exception – on this subject matter your opinion is as minuscule as your only claim to manhood. By the way that is the same claim my dog has. Perhaps your opinion would have some value if you climbed out of the FauxNews bubble and stop listening to the whale who spouts nothing but hatred, fear, and intolerance. His policies would be more successful if there was not a bunch of hypocrites being obstructionists and putting their own personal political careers before the well being of this Country. Reading your comments I now know you don’t have an original thought, just repeating FauxNews Talking Points. You are the last one who should be talking about someone’s competency. By the way genius you responded to the post you think didn’t deserve a response. Grow up or at least get your mother’s permission next time you want to talk about women’s issues.

          • Sand_Cat

            So if their religion involves human sacrifice, then government has no right to interfere, period? If they are so holy and unworldly, they why do they need employees?

          • 4sanity4all

            “Not with taxpayer’s money” is a red herring. The Republicans keep trying to pass unconstitutional laws that prevent women, even those with money, from accessing reproductive services at all. They do this by making them geographically unavailable, and micro-managing what will go on in the examining room. It is the height of hypocrisy for a party that claims to want ‘smaller government’.

          • mike

            2012 PP aborted 333,964 fetus, that number is larger than the population of the city of Cincinnati Ohio, PP received 45% of revenues from Fed Govt., performed only 2,300 adoption referrals, and fewer than 30,000 prenatal services. 2012 had an 87 million dollar surplus and has assets of 1.2 billion.
            So save your outrage!!!

          • progressiveandproud

            Sources?

          • mike

            Many sources right and left. Those numbers are verified by several sources. Google PP!!!

          • Independent1

            And what you’re failing to realize clueless one is that without Roe vs Wade and without PP, those abortion numbers would be even higher. Statistics have proven that more abortionsl happen where abortion is illegal. And why? Because those 333,964 abortions were for women that PP couldn’t persuade to not have an abortion. PP at least makes an effort to counsel women on the downsides of abortion – whereas without PP and other abortion clinics, not only would abortions be higher than they already are, but there would be thousands of more women dying every year from botched abortions done by quacks (and abortions are less than 3% of the help that PP gives to women).

            It would revert back to just like what was happening back in the 40s and 50s before Roe vs Wade when it was common to have severl aews articles appear in the paper almost every week about some women bleeding to death because of botched abortion done in warehouse or back alley with the surgical tool of choice being a coat hanger.
            When are feeble minded people such as yourself going to wake up and realize that it wasn’t Roe vs Wade that has suddenly increased the number of aborltions?? It’s been the releasing of women from the contraints of ancient times when they were basically slaves to men – giving them the freedom to make their own decisions. And without Roe vs Wade and abortion clinics like PP and others that try to counsel women on the decision of abortion, there would be a far greater number today.

            And making abortions illegal in a state IS NOT going to reduce abortions in any way – a woman is going to make that choice whether it’s legal or whether it’s not. The only difference is that those women who are well off will travel to where it’s legal while those who are not will risk their lives having an abortion on the street. And aside from those cases where women will end up dying because of a botched abortion, there will be no record of the thousands of abortions that will occur in back alleys, warehouses or some slum. BUT THERE WILL NOT!! be a reduction in abortions – there will be an increase because women won’t have anywhere to turn for guidance on making that choice. WAKE UP DUMBCOFF!!!

            Since you are a big choice advocate, why can’t women have a choice of schools? Why are women forced to send their kids to failing govt. schools?

          • disqus_fsqeoY3FsG

            Men and Women have a choice of schools their children can attend, Public, Private and Religious Schools. Public Schools are failing because of major budget cuts. Chartered schools receive public funding and just as with Public Schools some are failures and some are successful.
            My Government with all it’s warts and scars works well for me and if the Republicans would start working for “we the people” rather than their own political careers and stop protecting big business and the top 1% it would be working even better.

            1977 Congress passed the Hyde Amendment which prohibits Federal Funds being spent for abortions. The only exception that would allow it to be paid through Medicaid is for Rape, Incest and if the life of the mother was at risk. The Hyde Amendment must be passed by Congress Annually.

          I was going to comment to Mike but your response was stated so concisely and succinctly as to why teapublicans speak out of both sides of their mouth by trying to court the women’s vote while also putting them down and taking away their rights. All they have to do is keep opening their mouths showing their true agenda and come election time women will show them at the ballot box that we are smart enough to not buy their BS and vote them out of office.

        • jointerjohn

          The answer to all of your whys is because they are pursuing a male-dominant historic model rooted in a primitive image of God, (who is also a sexist male), and they have been getting away with it for so long they can’t imagine the party is almost over. When he says he wants “women to be something other than victims of their gender” he is revealing that he considers the condition of femaleness to be a disability. These dumb men think they are still playing to a female electorate of Edith Bunker and Gracie Burns. They are the political equivalent of those lost souls you still see occasionally at the supermarket or hardware store wearing mullets. Time passed them by and they haven’t figured it out yet.

        I did hear what he said and I think he was misquoted, BUT the point that he was TRYING TO make was to BLAME the DEMOCRATS for mistreating, violating and humiliating women.

          A better word is “projection,” something the GOP has been doing for most of my life, and which was even endorsed as a campaign strategy by Rove. I wonder if he was perceptive enough to realize that’s what had been going on and decided to make the best of it?

        • mike

          My post was to the fact that he was being misquoted for political reasons.
          The story “Julia” pretty much tells women what the democratic party has in store for them.
          He never said “mistreating, violating and humiliating women”, please go back and hear him again.
          Gov. Huckabee said ” if democrats want to insult women by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and giving them prescription every month”-I think that is pretty close.
          Obama and the rest of you want Big Government and want people to believe it is only govt. that can make your life better, which is a crock of manure.
          Republicans disagree.

            Women DO NOT need men telling them how to act, live or think, most women make household decisions.
            You see it’s not that Obama and the rest of us want big government, the republicans won the house because we the people wanted smaller government, but instead of you who get paid to do the job are all up into womens concerns instead of governing what should be governed. There are a shit load of cuts that we as a nation can work by vocalizing, and voting for or against. We do not need to cut unemployment extension, food stamps, education nor health plans. We the people earn and deserve a working government for the betterment of ALL of us.
            You rich guys make your money by legislating laws that only benefit the top 10%. Look at all the government contract your buddies get. Look at all the unnecessary buildings that were built with military funds. Only your buddies get to benfit from all these taxes that we the people pay. Stop crying about big government and start looking at where you should be cutting. You guys make the big government. We just want to be safe and free.

            Obama doesn’t want a Bigger Govt.??? Now that’s hilarious, every policy, every new regulation is for more govt. control. Obamacare is not about healthcare, it is the control of people. 4000 new regulations, 80,000 new pages of regulations last year. A bloated budget a rising deficit and debt.

            As to your last paragraph, what horse manure. The rich under Obama are receiving 93 cents of every new dollar made.

          • Independent1

            Here clueless, here’s some statistics for you: Between Reagan and Bush 2, they increased the size of our federal government by close to 300,000 workers, while in contrast, Clinton reduced it by over 380,000, such that TODAY, the federal government is 330,000 workers smaller than in 1989 when Reagan left office.

            And not only that, when Bush 2 was in office, not only did he increase the size of the Federal government by more than 50,000, his administration past so many unfunded state mandates that it took an additional 950,000 plus people in all governments (fed, state and local) to administer them. THAT’S 950,000 MORE GOVERNMENT WORKERS UNDER BUSH 2!!!

            Although because of expanding FEMA and passing Obamacare, there have been about 27,000 added to the federal government during Obama’s 5 years; all governments combined (fed, state and local) have been reduced by over 600,000. SO GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE ABOUT THE GOP WANTING SMALL GOVERNMENT!! THAT’S TOTALL NONSENSE!!

            The only reason the GOP keeps spouting the lies about wanting smaller government, is because they want to destroy all the government departments that keep them from destroying the planet, the American food supply and the air we breathe and water we drink – and they want to see America’s infrastructure become like a 3rd world nation.

          • mike

            Still thinking Big Govt is about number of fed. employees, what a laugh.
            It is the growth of rules and regulations that continue to take more freedoms and rights away. Last year 80k pages of new regulations were added to the Fed. Registry with over 4000 new regulations in the pipeline. Last year almost 200 billion was taken out the private sector alone and total costs now over a trillion a year.
            We are now “REGULATION NATION”. Harder to start a business, hire employees, etc..

            help of national sponsors to support entrepreneurs.
            Here’s what Jack Sunderlage had to say about the current entrepreneurial trend, based on calculations and information he’s gathered from the Kauffman Foundation. As of March 2011, there are an average of 320 new businesses launched every month, for every 100,000 U.S. adults. That equates to 543,000 new U.S. companies every month. (We
            can’t annualize this number by simply multiplying by 12, Kauffman notes, since some entrepreneurs are in and out of multiple businesses during that time. However, multiple estimates put the total number of U.S. entrepreneurs at 11.5 million, in sum.)

    I am amazed that the media covers this individual at all who is at the very farthest fringe of the extreme GOP….who cares if he backs up backs down changes his mind….its twaddle coming out of him…

    • Allan Richardson

      Other infamous people in history were ignored by the mainstream media of their day, while they used their own underground media to acquire so much fanatical support that they could no longer be ignored. Then it was too late for public opinion to stop them.

        Millennials don’t watch television news but will pick up coverage of these comments on the Internet. They are an important voting block Democrats need to dislodge Republicans in Congress and their backwards thinking.

        So true, Hitler comes to mind first and foremost. At least this time the mainstream media is doing their job. Back then, even Americans envied Hitler at first for his accomplishments. I can see a lot of parallels between what the Nazis were spewing then and what the far right is spewing now…immigration, traditional purity and a strong national identity are just a few examples.

      If the media didn’t cover these idiots people would never know what complete assholes they really are.

    Huckabee’s remarks are infantile, but over the head of his target audience. As president, I fear the reverend Huck, would be a combination of Elmer Gantry and Dick Cheney.

  • Mark Forsyth

    Huck wants money but he deserves a kick in the head or his ass,wherever he keeps his sorry excuse for brains.

  • Frank Libbon

    He’s the guy who wanted to put thousands of men, women & children with AIDS in quarenteen, but refused to explain who would nurse, feed and guard them. No doubt he meant to have them placed in secluded & guarded camps. Seems the NAZI did the same thing to millions of people and gassed and burned at least 6 million of them. We the People should do to Huckabee what Barry Goldwater said we should do to Jerry Falwell, that being: “Give Huckabee a Good Swift Kick in His Big Fat Ass.”

    I am not a fan of Hukabee, but if you hear the whole comment, the implication is wrong..he was saying that women are not stupid enough to believe ..etc.

    I hate it when the right wing does this and I wish we wouldn’t do it too,,

    • Yousuck

      “he was saying that women are not stupid enough to believe” Hukabee or the republican party.

  • howa4x

    Huckabee didn’t get the memo from the center. He was speaking to the evangelical base that is his only core constituency. With out them who else does he have?

    • oldtack

      Huckabee is the type of person the Tea Party Evangelicals cling to. Check his record in Texarkana where he paraded as a “Man called by GOD to bring GOD’S message to the sinful world and save all those lost sinners from a fiery eternity in HELL”. He didn’t necessarily “walk the walk” but he did”Talk the Talk”. Then he discovered he could make a lot more money in Politics so suddenly he was no longer called by GOD to be a messenger for redemption and Salvation. I guess now he is “Called by GOD to bring Salvation to the misguided Democrats. This ilk operates on evangelical fear mongering and people like Huck and Michelle B. are the ones to lead them. .

      • howa4x

        In the olden days if you said you were talking to god either you were seen as a visionary or burned at the stake. today these people are a dime a dozen

    • mikem42

      They do seem to forget that when they try to speak only to their “kind”, there are microphones, tape recorders, cell phone cameras, etc.

  • Bodine666

    Don’t you just love it when a repub speaks in public? Just give them the rope and watch the action.

  • gigimn

    He is never going to be President…..

  • Lovefacts

    The Republican Party claims it wants a small government. Yet their actions give lie to their words; Huckabee’s being the most recent. Yes, they want no or few regulations on business or worker safety or the environment or clean water and air. But they do want a large military, large government contracts to the military/industrial complex, and to control every aspect of our sexual–male and female–and reproductive lives, what we read, and religion we follow.

    I’ve often said that when you exclude corruption, there are two major differences between the parties. Democrats can’t keep their flies zipped and Republicans can’t keep their hands off the Constitution–our free choice. I’d rather live in a world where I have some regulations than one where I have no free choice.

  • mikem42

    And, we’re the takers. Give me a break. All these right wing nuts live off “donations” from people who actually work, or “make” things.

  • Pamby50

    Of course he is not going to back down. When listening to the republican strategist yesterday, they were all saying he could have used a better word. Then you watch Bill Maher last night & Carly Fiorina said they need to stop talking about women’s reproductive rights. This morning Kathleen Parker is saying the same thing. Republican men need to stop but alas, they are to moronic to know better.

  • newhope4all

    If the Republicans want to control libido, nothing will kill women’s libido more than listening to these pasty faced, old fat impotent, unattractive gasbags. I doubt that the likes of Mitch McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, Rove, Limbaugh, etc. are fighting off scores of sex crazed women who are lining up at their door frothing at the mouth hoping to have sex with them! Wonder what their wives think. Yuck! Not tonight dear, I have a permanent headache.

  • Siegfried Heydrich

    Well, if it’s libido control they’re after, then it should be men they concentrate on; after all, it’s easier to just unload the gun than it is to fire rounds into a bulletproof vest . . .

  • progressiveandproud

    Why would anyone expect the huckster to back down? He gets headlines by saying outlandish things, much like Ann Coulter.

  • dtgraham

    If you want a chuckle, and some insight into why Mike Huckabee may not be the sharpest international knife in the drawer, just type in “Huckabee congratulates Canada on it’s national igloo” in your search engine.

  • centerroad

    Huck is running for President.

    Huck is familiar with this effective fund raising method.

    Expect more from Huck.

    Btw, of the many trying to stake out the right wing, Huck might be the most deeply embedded, his book, his tape, and his show give him a strong head start.

  • marriea

    What this jerk knows about the female body he could put in a tiny thimble and still have room to drown his stupidity. Why not just support the idea of not requiring a prescription for birth control if it’s not a medical issue. Viagra, Cialis and the such are covered. Oh h, its really about saying something stupid so some other stupid person of a like mindset can send him money……..Is this dude still married? Does his wife support her husband’s lack of biology. It seems every man who doesn’t understand women since the days of Leviticus have tried to make women the bad guy. Geez….

  • brickman

    Mrs. Huckabee has no trouble controlling her libido.

  • Justin Napolitano

    I think he wanted money for his fuc pac because I doubt if any women including his wife will want anything to do with him.
