'Mike Huckabee is Chuck Norris approved'

Chuck Norris is seeking campaign cash for Mike Huckabee.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Fresh off endorsing Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee last month, actor Chuck Norris has penned a fundraising e-mail Tuesday on behalf of the Arkansas Republican, and he's making several demands.

"The first thing I need you to do today is make a contribution in support of Mike Huckabee's campaign," the "Walker Texas Ranger" star writes in the e-mail carrying the subject “Mike Huckabee is Chuck Norris approved”.

"The second thing I need you to do today is ask at least one friend to make a contribution to Mike's campaign," Norris continues. "The third and final thing I need you to do today is to tell your friends and family members that aren't able to contribute at this time to Mike's campaign to at least sign up for his email updates."

Norris endorsed Huckabee late last month, declaring in his online column, "I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee."

Huckabee registered 10 percent in the latest national CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll of registered Republicans. But the former Arkansas governor is doing considerably better in the early-voting state of Iowa. The latest American Research Group poll of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers places him in second place with 19 percent - trailing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by 8 percentage points.

    Great, more big government and illegal wars. Thanks Chuck Norris. That's just what you should be endorsing.

    Why not consider Ron Paul? He's proven himself to have the principles that fall most in line with our Constitution. And he's proven his integrity.

    Chuck Norris believes the United States was created by the founding fathers as a Christian nation. Shows how much he knows. I bet Huckabee is proud to have him on board. Some Republicans wallow in ignorance.

    "And Chuck Norris is relevant because?"

    *******************

    ...and ANY of the Hollywood types is relevant to either Party because? Remind yourselves of that during the next Clinton lovefest with these buffoons.

    What a crazy person! Only like 99% of the documents from back then referenced God with a capitol "G." Hell only 90% of the people moving here were Christians evading religious persectution. It's no theocracy, but there's no denying where many of the roots were planted.

    Huckabee is on FIRE. He reached an all-time high in the latest poll from the Iowa caucuses released yesterday, and he could soon challenge Romney for the win there.

    Alright J Houston:

    Learn some history...They moved here and created the constitution in order to Cut the Roots of Religious interference in governance...

    The framers were well aware that claiming devine anything was a haunting demon for humanity since the dawn of civilization...Wars, intollerance, and fearful rulers all claiming "god" caused more problems than it solved..

    Look up the treaty of Tripoli and let me know what you think then...

    BTW I'm suprised no one commented on Chuck's terrible hair & beard coloring...What a patchy job....

    America can't afford to miss on Barack Obama. Think twice. We needed FDR to fix the economy promblems we were facing after great depression. Now we need an outsider to get rid of the correption in Washingon D.C. We owe it to the next generation.

    In the beginning, God said,"Let there be light."

    Chuck Norris said, "Say Please."

    T Tim,

    Umm... Tiny Tim is a fictional character whereas Chuck Norris is an actual human being. Also, I believe Mr. Tiny to be British and from the Victorian era, however, I could be mistaken.

    Mr. Huckabee is the only sincere man in the campaign and luckily he is for the whole Red, White, and Blue. He is probably the only one who can help heal a divided nation. Along with Mr. Senator McCain, they are the only unscripted candidates who have a depth of thought on all of the important issues facing America today. Mr. Obama may be that person for the Dems and he will probably win the nomination. The 2008 campaign will probably feature Obama/Richardson vs McCain/Huckabee. Together McCain/Huckabee will insure that Republicans hold on to the White House for the next 16 years.

    Mike Huckabee is shaping up to be the darling dark horse of the GOP. When he is weighed on all the issues important to republican voters, Huckabee is nonpareil. He doesn't have the marquee of Guiliani or the money motif of Romney but on issues he is going to sway a lot of primary voters. Huckabee hasn't wavered on his stance or tried to inflate his credentials. This man is the real thing.
