Huckabee: I persuaded Senator Thune not to run – kinda
To all the Thune lovers out there disappointed he won’t be running in 2012, you now have someone to blame.
As if some of us didn’t like him least as it is…
Mike Huckabee told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader that talked to Sen. John Thune (R-SD) about the frustrations of running for president.
Said Huckabee: “What I told him was, I wish it were about the issues and ideas and dreams and visions. Unfortunately it is about how much money you have raised or how many staffers have you got… You will want to talk about policies, you will end up talking about the process, and that can be discouraging.”
He added: “So I must have discouraged him.”
Break out the torches and pitchforks!
