Another Michigan Endorsement for Mike Huckabee and Tenth michigan Blogger for Huckabee

I would just like to take this op to announce a second endorsement for Mike Huckabee, from the great state of Michigan! The first Michigan Endorsement being by Rev. Keith Butler. Mr. Akindele F. Akinyemi of "Akindele Unleashed" blog has endorsed Mike Huckabee. Who is Mr. Akinyemi? Well I don't know a whole lot about him, but here is his blog description; Who is Akindele?

  • "Mr. Akindele F. Akinyemi is simply a conservative educator from the City of Detroit, Michigan. The Founder and CEO of A-1 Management, an affiliate of the One Network, Mr. A works very hard to educate our youth and our community on conservative values that can help transform people lives. A staunch supporter of educational choice, strong relationships and building an economic foundation for our future this educator is conducting the A-Train at full speed."
Sounds like a pretty smart guy, huh? He may not be some fancy pants Senator or Congressman. He seems like a well known blogger who is more than just the average blogger who just talks about there opinion. But if he supports Mike Huckabee he must know a thing or two. I have read his blog now and again. I have liked what I read. He seems very down to earth and his posts are concise, not like when "yours truly" rants and raves about this and that. Here is his post about endorsing Mike Huckabee.
  • Today, I am officially announcing the endorsement of Gov. Mike Huckabee for President. Whether he wins or not I am highly impressed with his genuine approach of solving issues here in the United States.
  • I was watching the CNN/YouTube debates last night and Gov. Huckabee impressed me. Here is the final hook for me during those debates. An African American male from Los Angeles, CA asked a question on why African Americans do not vote for Republicans when most of us are originally conservative. Gov. Huckabee stated that the Republican Party has not done a good job in reaching out to African Americans and he clearly stated how 48% of African Americans voted for him when he was Governor of Arkansas.
  • 48%?
  • If the Republican Party want to find someone who can swing the votes in the African American community it will be Huckabee. No one else.
  • Mayor Guilani cannot do it because he has been historically hostile towards Blacks. Gov. Romney cannot do it because Blacks are traditionally skeptical of the Mormon faith. Most Blacks do not even know Fred Thompson or the other candidates and they have not been reaching out to the urban community.
  • Speaking of Blacks, the Florida Republican Party is on fire. Not only they have had two Republican debates in the state but they even hosted a Black Republican Conference recently to gain more support for Blacks who are in the Republican Party as well as expanding their outreach efforts to bring Blacks into the Party. I am impressed unlike some of us in the Midwest who want to continue the status quo and wait until election time to bring Blacks into the Party just for a vote. Not interested in Johnny Come Lately types of campaigns.
  • In various national polls, Huckabee is coming in a solid third behind former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson. In fact,the former Arkansas governor is now running in a dead heat with Mitt Romney in the lead in Iowa.
  • I think he will beat Romney in Iowa. Huckabee is the sleeper in this race.
  • Republican voters rate him first in both honesty and morality. Some Democrats I know are even switching their vote for Gov. Huckabee. The very fact that he is in the South makes him a stronger candidate than Romney or Guilani, who are looked at as either an Yankee or Liberal Republican.
  • The other thing we are not looking at is how this man, with his honesty and being genuine, is correct on many social issues that Huckabee, a Baptist minister, is the real deal. This is playing well among Iowa Republicans, a third of whom are evangelicals and 70 percent of whom are conservatives.

Being the first Huckabee blogger from Michigan I am so glad to see that the list of Michigan bloggers for Huckabee is growing. The cool thing is that after I announce a new Huckabee blogger from Michigan I receive a comment that I missed someone. So, if I missed you, comment away. you're even allowed to chew me out for missing you. I also want to add that where I found out about Mr. Akinyemi's endorsement of Mike Huckabee was on RightMichigan.com. This is another of my fave blogs.
