Video: Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul on Face the Nation

Here is the entire interview with Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul on Face the Nation from 11/11/07. They were also on same airing and I’ve put them in the order they appeared:

Huckabee is sounding enthusiastic, probably because he’s polling second in Iowa now.

Next, here’s Ron Paul on Face the Nation this morning as well:

Here’s a news report on both appearances:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 11 (UPI) — Presidential hopefuls Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul said Sunday their recent polling and fundraising success shows voters are not sold on GOP front-runners.

Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” his campaign is “on fire” and said he’s drawing crowds up to four times the size expected.

“These are folks who are ready to sign up and who are ready to walk through eight feet of snow to get to the polls,” Huckabee said.

He took it as a badge of honor that fellow GOP contender Fred Thompson attacked him recently.

“It’s a real form of flattery when you start getting attacked, because no hunter points his gun at a dead carcass,” he said.

Paul, a Libertarian GOP congressman from the Houston area, said the $5 million in contributions his campaign pulled in last week shows Americans “are just starved for” his vision of limited federal government. Still, he recognizes he’s a long-shot.

“But compared to 12 months ago, I would say that it’s much more likely now,” Paul said. “… Don’t try and tell my supporters that there’s not a chance, because they believe.”

Ain’t that the truth about Ron Paul supporters, “they believe”.

  • Huckabee and Ron paul don’t have a chance at all to win the presidency. If you want to check out a real candidate with real values, check out Hillary Clinton. You won’t be disappointed.

    Huckabee might be lacking in foreign policy… but he is so strong on domestic issues… he needs John McCain as VP.

    I was a bit appalled at Ron Paul’s ultra simplistic vision of foreign policy, especially equating Iran and Pakistan in terms of nuclear capability. He also seemed to not realize that Iran does not need to have a nuclear weapon, just weaponized Uranium to hand off to a third party as they are a major terror sponsor.

    Both candidates are very sincere good guys. I will have to go for Huckabee all the way though, and he has just as much chance to win as Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton did as long shot candidates.

  • Joe

    Forty percent of the GOP recognizes that the war in Iraq is a mistake. If they stick together with Ron Paul while the other candidates split the rest of the primary vote six ways, Ron Paul will win the nomination.

    I don’t think he’ll have any trouble with Hillary, either. All he has to do is ask her position on driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.

    Chukmaty: Do you really think Pakistan isn’t a major sponsor of terrorism? Have you heard of the ISI? I highly recommend you look at the following list carefully:

    For that matter, the US-sponsored terrorism is ubiquitous. The Contras, the Mujahideen…where do you think bin Laden got his training?
