Huckabee's Obama Assassination Proclamation

5/17/2008 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good thing this guy dropped out of the race, cause we certainly don't need this brand of presidential "humor."


Former candidate Mike Huckabee was speaking Friday to the NRA, when there was a loud bang. Instead of continuing his speech, he aimed a joke at Barack Obama. *crickets*

Huckabee apologized for his "offhand remark," saying it was not "intended to offend or disparage Senator Obama." Obama, for his part, refused to comment.

Because what's funnier than killing a U.S. Senator?!

@ 143. "Because what's funnier than killing a U.S. Senator?!"

Now that's a loaded question (pun intended).

Don't answer it, or you might have Secret Service knocking on your door.

LOL!!!

Oh boy    

10. I wish someone would put Obama out of his misery. He has no clue how to run this country, I am a democrat and I will vote republican before I vote for him in the next election. Hopefully the democratic party has enough common sense to let Hillary run instead of him for the general election. But worse case scenario we are just handing the election over to the republicans, isn't that fabulous? Yayyyy another 4 years of republican BS all because a black man with zero experience decided to get too big for his head one day.

i think he said what many people have thought might happen,i am surprised somebody hasn't taken a shot at somebody by now given the history,but this guy made a off color joke for no other reason except he didn't think before he opened his mouth to talk,what else is new.

Actually if anyone made that joke about our President who is in the public eye like Mike Huckabee is, I can assure you the Secret Service would have came a knocking and his phone would be tapped and the Patriot Act would be front and center.

So actually he would be in twice the hot water he is in. Imagine if Hillary Clinton said this samething about George Bush and your telling me it would all be considered a joke like this? Thats the double standard. So give me a break.

Yes we would, but to make a joke about killing a sitting a president, not funny and against the law. So making a joke about killing a presidential candidate is also not funny.

you did nail it though man here is a black man with the middle name Hussien running for President of the USA. I mean talk about overcoming odds to even get as far as he has. He really is damned if does, damned if he doesn't with most of the Rep voters. It really makes ya think what the true reasons for not voting for him are

111. You see, Mike Huckabee believes in the right to own and bear arms. B. Hussein Obama does not. Huckabee was making a point about B. Hussein Obama being afraid to stand up and support our constitutional right to keep and bear arms (guns). You people that watch a 20-second video clip and then post uneducated remarks are.....well....uneducated morons....and TMZ feeds off of you and your 2-cent comments.

hahaha...tipycal fear mongering republican...quote unquote " B. Hussein Obama"... we all know barack's middle name is hussein. does his middle name mean he related to saddam? No. Does his middle name means he going to act just like saddam? No. Please don't insult our intelligence..

Don't "post uneducated remarks" here.

UNBELIEVABLE! You people are blowing this completely out of proportion! If it was Obama who made that joke, everyone would be cheering. You people are all a bunch of idiots!

See there you go feeling sorry for yourself. No one said a first term senator was entitled to be President. But who knows? Go for it? If not this time in four years.
