GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE AND HUCK PAC ANNOUNCE RESULTS OF MIKEHUCKABEE.COM SYRIA POLL
Huckabee and Huck PAC release statement about results of poll: Do you support the use of force in Syria?
Little Rock, AR - Governor Mike Huckabee issued the following statement about the results of his poll asking if the use of force in Syria is appropriate.
Over 27,000 voted in the poll. The results were overwhelmingly against the use of force, with 25,628 or 94% voting against the use of force. It is clear that the majority of the American people are against any action by the United States military against Syria. President Obama continues to show ineptness in his handling of the crisis in Syria.
Over a year ago he said in a speech in the White House Rose Garden that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would be the crossing of a red line for him. Now he says he didn't set a red line. A short time ago he said he didn't need Congressional approval, but now he says he wants Congressional approval and if they don't give it to him, he may still attack Syria.
An unusual alliance has formed in Congress, with Democrat liberals and Republican conservatives joining forces to oppose any action against Syria. Conservative Senators such as Rand Paul and Marco Rubio (Huck PAC endorsed candidates) voted against the Senate resolution authorizing an attack on Syria. In the House, Conservatives like Rep. Ted Poe have already decided to vote no, while many others have not made up their mind.
It's time for the President to explain to the American people why he feels it is necessary to attack Syria, and what proof the Administration has that the Assad regime did use chemical weapons against its own people.
