Governor Mike Huckabee, who ran for president in 2008 and is a regular on Fox TV, appeared at a book signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Charlotte, NC, today, Friday, November 13, 2009. I spoke briefly to Governor Huckabee and he is just as nice in person as he is on TV. A large crowd stood in line for the signing of Huckabee’s book, “A Simple Christmas.”
While waiting in line I spoke to several people about the state of the country, health care and Congress. All of the folks I spoke to seemed like average Americans and they weer not happy with Congress or the Health Care Bill.
One lady, much younger than I had recently moved from Florida. She has always voted and is not happy with the current state of things. She bought 6 of Huckabee’s books.
A couple near my age group were very unhappy with the state of things and especially the Health Care Bill. The lady stated I should run for office. Ouch. I must control my passion.
An older lady next to me was also concerned. She stated that she had never seen things go from bad to worse as when Obama got elected. She was very concerned but seemed pleased to hear of efforts to unseat congressmen next year.
