Quote Of The Day

“I just don’t think it’s completely necessary for us to delve into such extraneous matters. And I’ll tell you, the idea that he’s not a citizen – you know why that’s nonsense?

Let’s focus on the issues with which we have disagreement, not on really the extraneous personal things that are immaterial.” -former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, speaking to ABC's George Stephanopoulos on GMA this morning.
