At NRA Huckabee Jokes About Someone Shooting Obama

Posted by | May 16, 2008 14:48 | Filed under: Top Stories

It was at the 137th NRA Leadership Forum in Louisville. First, Karl Rove got up and blasted Obama for saying bitter people cling to guns and religion.

(Rove) said it was not the place of the government to “pick and choose” which rights to deny and allow its citizens. He went further by saying “We believe in the wisdom of the founders even more than the wisdom of a liberal senator from the south side of Chicago.”

Here we go again. Using “liberal” as a perjorative.  And if government shouldn’t pick and choose which rights our founders had in mind, I presume that should include the right to privacy, the right to not be searched without a warrant, and Habeas corpus.  After Rove spoke, Huckabee took a shot at Obama.

Mike Huckabee…was interrupted by a loud noise. “That was Barack Obama,” he said. “He just tripped off a chair. He was getting ready to speak and someone pointed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”


Will Huck be rewareded for this with a vice presidential nod?

Update: Huckabee apologized:

“During my speech at the NRA a loud noise backstage, that sounded like a chair falling, distracted the crowd and intrupted my speech. I made an off hand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Sen. Obama.
I apologize that my comments were offensive that was never my intention.”
