Americans are fed up

July 6, 2018

Looking back through my files, I found that upon Obama’s win in 2008, even though I worked hard for McCain and was very concerned about Obama’s lack of experience and far-left ideas, I congratulated him and said we should all pray for his success because he was the President of all of us now and his successes or failures would be those of our entire nation.  On his Inauguration day in 2009, I wrote this:

 TRENDING: Time to replace the income tax with the Fair Tax

“Our new President faces a staggering array of problems, from the economy to the terrorist threat.  For all the cheering supporters and platoons of advisors, the ultimate decisions and their consequences will fall to him alone.  My hope is that the loyal opposition on the Republican side will work with Obama on areas of agreement and show him the respect a President is due, even when they disagree and vigorously oppose.  After eight years of relentless and often personal attacks on President Bush, Americans could use a good example not only of how to cooperate, but of how to disagree without demonizing.” 

We could still use that, now more than ever.  And may I say (with apologies for using such blue language in a public forum):  “Double standard, my foot!”

To Maxine Waters, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, April Ryan, Robert DeNiro, Don Lemon, Joy Behar and all the other foaming-at-the-mouth NeverTrumpers: Americans are beyond fed up with the relentless, sneering disrespect of our duly-elected President and his family, and the downgrading and dismissal of his accomplishments.  It’s coming across as childish, selfish and disrespectful to tens of millions of Americans as well.  If you have a disagreement with Trump’s policies, then explain it intelligently and respectfully – you know, like an adult.  Otherwise, we’ll continue to pay you as much attention as we would a toddler who’s been throwing the same tantrum for 18 months.

    Temper tantrums & 'toddlerism'...boorishness, rudeness... How on earth can these people be respected! But, sadly, I no longer go to movies, watch any TV sponsoring rude, vulgar or hateful speech.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee,
    I want to thank you for your civility. You are a very nice, respectful, fair, intelligent man, and I admire you very much . I also love your daughter, and I applaud her as well as thank her for her service to the Country. She is a very strong, courageous woman that has to deal with far too much insanity and hatefulness from the Left and the Media. Her ability to handle very unfair, unkind, and disrespectful situations with such grace and confidence is something you must be very proud of her for. Again, thank you for being you, a reasonable, sane, voice in a storm of hate, violence, and dysfunction. Your words and actions give us hope, guidance, and calmness that is so desperately needed at this time.
    Much love to you and your family, Bambi Forester

    Thank you, Mike Huckabee, for saying so clearly what so many millions want to say. Yes, it is past time for people to show due respect to our President and his family. I hope those same people read your comments! Do they stop to realize they are disrespecting all of us who voted for President Trump and who believe in what he is doing? AND they are disrespecting God Who told us to honor and pray for our leaders in I Timothy 2:1-4 and I Peter 2:13-17. You are one of my main sources of news. I trust your integrity, your faith in the Lord and His Word, and your love and commitment to all of us and to our country as a whole. Thank you so much! And yours is the only news source where I often can laugh and walk away with some hope instead of dread! Thank you for your wonderful sense of humor!! We need it!! And thank you for ending with a Scripture each day which gives me the most hope!! God bless you!!

    I couldn't agree more! The real truth here is that Democrats have no intention of ever cooperating with Trump or the GOP, it's their socialist agenda or nothing! It has nothing to do with patriotism and moving this country forward, they are the party of obstruction at any cost in order to destroy this president and push their own socialist agenda. On the other hand Trump, who is neither a Dem. or a Repub, is a constructionist, actually cares about the country and wants to get things done! Personally I wouldn't trust a Democrat to lead me to the toilet!

    I can't believe how crazy the left has become. People are rejoicing that our legally elected President will be so disrespected on his trip to the UK. A giant baby Trump in a diaper blimp will be flying overhead while he is meeting with officials and the Queen???? This is totally disgusting and I wish he would cancel his trip. How can anybody think this is OK? They are disrespecting our entire country, as well as the office of the President. There are so many very serious things that he is dealing with and has been for 18 months. He has done a good job in spite of these idiots fighting him every minute of every day. I am afraid how this may end. They are nuts, don't care about the Constitution, our laws, law enforcement or our military. Everybody better get busy praying for this President and his family and the people who work for him because it will take a miracle to straighten out 60+ million people who hate him and our great country.

    Thank you Mr. Huckabee for calling out those that seem to live by vileness. I pray for them, but won't tolerate their hatefulness. May our God continue to guide you, protect you and bless you and yours.

    This American has been fed up for a long time. Corruption by those who work "for" the people work only for themselves. They do not even work for the country. Perhaps this is not true of all of them but there are enough of these parasites to cripple those who try. The left is relentless and right seems almost apathetic. Violence against the right is not only tolerated but encouraged. There is absolutely NO doubt in my mind that D.J. Trump is precisely what we need and we have needed him more. I think the single most critical issue the law. Without it we are lost. We MUST reestablish and strengthen the "Rule of Law," and add another blindfold to Lady Justice.

    Love your commentary and I agree that dems are temper tantrum toddlers. Its embarrassing to this great country. Its all from they're liberal policies from the 80s about not disciplining your children and this is the result. Completely clueless to reality. We are fed up and we're waiting on November to change all those dirty diapers in politics. Hope they get the hint this time and not blame everyone else for they're failed policies.but I doubt it

    Don't watch the View or the national news -wonder how many others do the same? In fact, stopped watching our local news. Live in south Texas & am weary of listening to Illegal(what don't they get) immigration & separation. I guess if you keep "drowning"(brainwashing) people enough they "fall" for it.

    Met a Trump hater- she called POTOS a piece of #*^#@ & would like to see Trump in actual/real flames. Where does such violent hatred come from? "Why," I asked, "do you hate him?" She had no answer or reason she just hates Trump tremendously. Governor Huckabee, this is not good for America & its spreading like an ugly cancer. America needs prayer because America needs revival. To disagree is one thing, to hate is another.

    I cannot wait to find out who President Trump will appoint to the Supreme Court!! This may well be one of those God things that have so insulted the L-wing. I guess me being a Southern lady who was raised by my Baptist grandparents who were the salt of the earth and saw all of their friends and family who all were the best people who ever walked on this land and I could wish to be half as much of a true American as they were. I am scared to death for my kids, grandkids and great grandkids when I get them unless this country gets on their knees and puts on the Armor of the Lord and gets off of their hands and stops turning the other cheek!!! People wake the heck up!! Even Jesus is getting frustrated and hurt by the people who He died for who are pansies now. God bless you and your family Governor Huckabee. I am still mad as a wet hen over how Sarah was treated!!!!!!!!!!!! She would be treated like royalty right here in the dead center of Texas USA!

    Fed Up is an accurate definition. Our children and our grandchildren are going to bear a heavy burden. Politically, financially, socially and especially spiritually. No responsibility or accountability. Unhealthy! The last president’s actions resembled actions of a person who appeared to hate God, America and the constitution. He didn’t have the experience but lacked a good or pure heart to try.
    President Trump may not be politically correct but he cares. God is using his Cyrus strengths to do His will. I pray that he seeks God’s will more. Thank you for reading our comments sent to you and thank you for your newsletters.

    I am so fed up and appalled at the constant vulgarity, obscenity and profanity from the left. The people who voted for Trump in enough numbers to elect him President did not ask for any of this. They elected Trump for the promises he has so far kept. The tantrum of the left should be a huge turn-off for anyone of even average intelligence.

    Thank you Sir, for backing up our president. He is truly doing his best to make this country great again. I’m proud to be an American and voted for him.
    And for all those people who are always attacking him in a negative ways, God forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing or saying with their filthy mouths.
    Yes, we need a wall to be built on our borders. We can not allow these illegal immigrants to attack our security.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA. My prayers to our president and all the people that lead this country for their wisdom.

    Respectfully,
    Lydia

    One thing I'd like to comment on here, is the protest against Trump's zero policy. People just have NO, Zero idea what the problems are presented to our country. When families, or groups of people posing as families present themselves at the borders and say take care of us, what is this country supposed to do. Many of these people have no reason for leaving their own country, ex: that woman whose little girl was shown crying at Trump's feet. Others aren't even families, but an adult with several children - possible human traffikers? And the "children" sent here with no parents at all, just sent on a perilous journey with dozens of others. Then in the mix are some families. They still have to be vetted, but where should our government put them til that happens? Please, can any of these protesters give us a solution or a reason for protest other than "anti-Trump".

    I live close to Branson, yet in Arkansas. I agree with you. We did not vote for Obama but would never behave like the left is behaving. Even when Obama mocked Christians and Catholics during the Prayer Breakfast with his smug, indignant remarks, I thought what a hateful, mean-spirited thing to say. Time and again he apologized to the rest of the world, making his persona seem weak. I personally do not understand how an ex-president can be working through OFA to undermine this republic. It truly makes me ill to look at him.
