I don’t know what’s gotten into Democrats these days, and I don’t just mean all the ones who keep endorsing acting like a torch-bearing mob in an old Frankenstein movie.  I mean that they used to be a lot more careful about concealing their true beliefs and intentions.

When I was young, we all knew that Democratic politicians would come home to campaign every two or six years, tell all us yokels how conservative they were and how much they were protecting us from those tax-and-spenders in Washington, then once safely reelected, go back to DC and spend like drunken sailors on a three-day shore leave.  At least they respected us enough to lie to us until the election was over.  But no more.  

Ever since Hillary Clinton called one-fourth of Americans a basket of racist, sexist, xenophobic, Islamophobic deplorables on camera before the election, Democrats have gotten notoriously sloppy about hiding their true feelings.  The election is still about four weeks away, and already, major Democratic candidates aren’t just letting the mask slip, they’re practically throwing it in our faces. 

Commentary continues below advertisement

First example: last week, Tennessee Senatorial candidate Phil Bredesen was assuring voters that he will be an independent moderate in DC and not do whatever Chuck Schumer tells him to. For instance, he would have voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court (he said that just as Taylor Swift was endorsing him, becoming the latest in a long line of men to disappoint Taylor Swift.)  

How inconvenient therefore that the latest undercover video expose by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is of three Bredesen campaign officials admitting that he was lying about that because he has to attract moderate and rural voters.  But rest assured, he "hates Trump," and once he gets to DC, he’ll follow the Democrat playbook “100 percent.”

Meanwhile, in the hotly-contested Arizona race to replace Sen. Jeff Flake, some 2011 video has surfaced of Democrat Krysten Sinema badmouthing her own state while speaking at a Democratic event in Texas.  She accuses the state legislature of “mainstreaming hatred” for trying to enforce immigration laws that the Obama Administration refused to enforce, and calls Republicans in her state “crazy.”  Which is not helpful, considering she’s running as a moderate and trying to appeal to Republican voters.

She also claims to have always respected and supported the military, but someone recently unearthed fliers distributed by an anti-war activist group she once ran, depicting our soldiers in the Middle East as skull-faced terrorists.  She also once sent a fundraising email comparing the deaths of illegal immigrants trying to cross the border to the deaths of our troops in battle. Not good PR when her Republican opponent, Rep. Martha McSally, is a retired Air Force colonel with over 100 hours of combat patrol flying time in Iraq under her belt.

If Democrats are serious about retaking power, they’re going to have to look to their forebears as examples and start doing a much better job of hiding what they really think and how much contempt they feel for us hairy, unwashed voters. Frankly, if they can’t do a better job of lying to our faces, they have no business being in professional politics.

    It's so refreshing to hear someone speak the truth. I'm amazed at the stupidity of some Democratic politicians.

    I have been voting now forover 50 years and am not a party member , I have been voting along split tickets most of the time. I am so torn this mid term as I don't even recognize the Democratic party. They have morphed into My hope is that there will be another party show its face with human like adult characteristics. Right now the only adult humanlike people are Republicans. Please Please Democrats clean up your party and rebuild a civilized party so we have choices. Right now you are a dead party

    Mrs. I follow all the politics on private news channels and I know what kind of lies the democrats, the deep state, the globalist, the cabal or what ever you want to call them. I was a Democrat until I saw how disgusting they’ve become. Me, my family and friends have all decided to vote republican. It makes me sick to know what the deep state has been doing to our country for several decades. They are spread out all over the globe. They all need to be arrested and put in prison for their crimes. Hilary, Obama, Rod Rosinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Water, George Soros, and many many others. All those involved in the Pizzagate, Pedogate, Spygate, uranium1, Benghazi, gun running among many other scandals and corruption. I want my country back.

    Hello! Thank you so much for all you are doing. Nancy P now says "the deficit is rising" so Trump is looking to "slash" Medicare and Social Security (copy below). Surely she jests...#2 Promote fear about the deficit... Kinda think this promotes fear about Medicare and Social Security. And, good old Beto and others say Cruz and the Republicans. voted "repeatedly" to stop protections for pre existing conditions and millions will lose their health care. (and Beto criticized Cruz for using scare tactics) And yes, they say this every five minutes on TV. Now they are texting repeatedly to our private cell phones. How are we to make sense of this stuff anymore. What's true; what's not. Help us make sense out of these things!!!

    Step 1: Pass a $2 trillion tax cut that overwhelmingly favors the rich and corporations shipping jobs overseas.

    Step 2: Promote fear and anxiety about the deficit.

    Step 3: Slash people's Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

    Step 4: Repeat.

    We want them to be true to themselves so we know what they are really about. There are always people deceived by lies, even gross Democrat lies. We want the truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth. Only then are we able to choose the good and reject the evil.

    Governor Huckabee: The raging liberals obviously have more to hide in DC then anyone knew. They have become so evil. Rand Paul is correct someone will get hurt or killed(I’m sure they will blame conservatives). I pray everyday to the Lord to not let anymore liberals be elected. They follow Satan .
    P.S. Your daughter is AWESOME!!!

    Right on as usual! You always tell the truth and that is so refreshing today. Republicans MUST GO VOTE! We cannot let the Dems take control of our country. If they do we will have no country worth living in left.

    My husband and I love your show! Thank you for sharing your insight into this angry and confusing political world we live in. We are both strong Trump supporters who are seniors and can't believe what the country has become. Keep up the good work.

    If the American way is so disgusting to them and since they've already milked us taxpayer's for millions, what's keeping them here? We need a creative way to get them to leave, like join Oprah and buy an island and just leave us alone.

    You know as well as I that progressivism causes brain rot. We are now see that their mouth goes in automatic before what little brain is left can engage!

    As usual you're succinct and right on point. Thanks for helping to 'out' the Socialist Left and all the loons therein.

    Huck , I love your comments. They are always so spot on, thought out, reasonable, they make sense; you add a flare of humor that always puts the word picture right where it needs to be. I voted for you twice. I appreciate your candidness, honesty, decency, unapologetic, unswerving faith in God, family and our constitution. Keep it up!

    Please check out SBC Disaster Relief for your endorsement of groups to support and contribute to. They are deployed to major disasters with feeding stations, mudout units, washer/dryer units, shower units, chainsaw units, chaplains, etc. I have personally worked and Sbc feeding station unit where Sbc cooked the food and handed it off 3x a day to the Red Cross to deliver...who do you think got credit for the meals and donations? I’m not knocking the Red Cross, although there are some things about them I’m not a fan of... but again, I would encourage you to check out SBC Disaster Relief.

    Even though you are doing a tongue in cheek kind of thing, I think it might be disadvantageous to tell the Democrats to go back to lying to our faces! They are well experienced at it and might just take you up on it. I do appreciate you outlining all that is happening now though. I just hope that all American's know that our nation is in the balance of this situation and how serious it is. It's not a party against another now. It's become good against evil. However the good part is questionable, but so much better only because of standing by the Constitution and for life and against abortion and for protection of our borders.

    The Democrats are just crazy making threas of violence, running ppl out of restaurants, just because they have a different opinion.

    Unfortunately the majority of younger potential voters are completely uninformed . They have been fed the Liberal point of view , whatever that really is , and believe anything they are told by like minded media and the new Socialists . Most of them couldn't pass the simple test required when applying for citizenship . They don't know who was involved in the Civil war or who is vice president for example . One of my family is a crazed Liberal who refuses to talk with me about my views . I get a condescending , irritated , look and veiled threat lest I speak further . A microcosm of the bigger picture . I fear the uninformed will actually vote in the fast approaching mid-terms . After all didn't they hear "Free" But I am rambling now . Thanks for what you are doing .

    I finally figured out why Clinton and the rest of her liberal minions are so anti gun, imagine if any of her husbands rape victims had been packing at the time of the assaults...

    Mr. Huckabee, I 100% agree with you. What is the issue is that I’m supposed to be the idiot because I voted for President Trump. I find it sad that some of my family are died in the wool Democrats. They are so smart and yet stupid at the same time. They just can’t admit he is a true patriot and loves the country. May God have mercy on our souls if we let them get back in control.
