Huckabee Visits Bristol
BRISTOL, Va. – Ten seconds.
That was the average amount of time it took former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to smile, shake hands, sign at least one copy of his new book and speak briefly Friday with each of about 500 people waiting in line at the Books-A-Million store in The Highlands retail center.
He posed for photos, thanked each for coming, apologized for the wait, wished them a Merry Christmas and received an outpouring of support and encouragement in return.
The Bristol stop was one of three scheduled Friday, amid a 57-city tour for the Fox News broadcaster and former presidential candidate who is promoting his new book, “Do the Right Thing.” link
His book and message?
“In the book, I want to try to remind people the Republican Party and the conservative movement isn’t dead,” Huckabee said. “We’re not in trouble because of conservatism, it’s because we advertised something and didn’t deliver.”
The book also projects Huckabee’s philosophy of changing the country.
“We need to get back to some common sense that is missing in government. I’m convinced there are a lot of people in Congress breathing rarefied air, that gives them a total disconnect with the rest of the world,”
Yes, that pretty well gets to the core “We’re not in trouble because of conservatism, it’s because we advertised something and didn’t deliver.”
