DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Anti-war protestors and Ron Paul supporters both kept Mike Huckabee from entering his Iowa campaign headquarters through the front door Monday.
Three people who managed to break inside - holding a sign that said "What Would Jesus Bomb?" - were arrested and led away, yelling and singing.
Around two dozen Ron Paul supporters outside chanted 'Legalize the Constitution.'
the sign says "who would jesus bomb" i can read it in the picture. do you wonder why you are losing credibility?
Just what this country needs: a candidate who's getting protested before he get's to the white house. Huckabee is divisive and will do nothing to stop the partisan sock puppet show that serves as nothing but a distraction to the American people, and a waste of tax dollars, while Corporate interests sneek bi-partisan corruption past the American people through the back door.
Land of the scared, divided, and ignorant; and home of the corrupt. 8 more years!

Ron Paul supporters didn't block anyone, it was solely the anti-war crowd. I think you need to fix that.
Also: Later that dad, Huckabee tried to use a news conference to air his negative hit piece against Mitt Romney while at the same time saying he was above that. Huckabee is being a disingenuous weasel. The self-anointed "Christian leader" is a self-righteous phony.
It's consoling to see concerned citizens taking some risk in order to help end this war.
The Ron Paul supporters did not block the entrance way and none were arrested, according to people at the scene.
You should point out that no Ron Paul supporters were arrested.
You guys shouldn't report on false stories. True there were protesters, but Ron Paul supporters were not the same people... they were near this, which is why you are falsely accusing them.
I'm seriously disappointed in this blog :\
I ask that you please edit this post! Someone from the Paul campaign said she was being interviewed by the networks to verify that Paul supporters were not involved.
"Anti-war protestors **AND** Ron Paul supporters?"
Gee this is a far different wording (which was ALSO incorrect) that what you reported earlier, which was that Ron Paul's supporters were not involved.
Did you happen to report that Ron Paul has his office in the same building, which doesn't make it all that odd that they were there?
You people are seriously becoming a joke. If we get Ron Paul elected, I am warning you right now: You will no longer get away with manipulating our politics with your obvious and blantant attempts and 'molding' a story.
You know the easiest way to stop a growing political movement? When your supporters start to do stuff like this. How stupid. Would Jesus also sit by while thousands of Iraqi Kurds get gas bombed, and Saddam Hussien rapes a country?
Ron Paul supporters believe in non-violent protest. I find it very hard to believe that they would prevent his right of way.
To Ron Paul supporters and the other liberal fruit cakes who denied Governor Huckabee to enter his Iowa campaign office today; Shame on you!
Are you too stupid to know that your freedom ended at the point that you blocked Mike Huckabee’s freely to enter his campaign office? Give it up, Americas has worked to hard to support lawlessness at your level.
I think CNN should seriously apologize (publicly) for starting a false story about Ron Paul. This isn't looking good for you guys...
it has already been confirmed by Ron Paul HQ that no Ron Paul supporters got involved with that and none where arrested. Nice try though.
Who Would Jesus Bomb? Looks like a darn good question for Huckabee!
The constitution is "legal" and always has been. That is how 3 people were able to BLOCK Huckabee from campaigning!!! What seems to be illegal is Christianity! It sounds like 3 people had a huge problem with it. Why can we preach what we want to without it bothering anti-religious people to such degrees?? Huh?!!
The Ron Paul supporters were NOT arrested. They stood further back away from the door.
It is my understanding that no Ron Paul supporters were involved. Can you please fact check this?
Could it be that Huckabee's campaign is staging all of these events around his campaign to boost his support among conservatives? the whole subliminal cross thing accusations would help him win conservatives in that Huckabee is being attacked by liberal types... conservatives would rally around him.... same thing with this. conservatives will rally around him in his being "attacked" by anti-war protesters. I think this is very ingenious campaigning on his part... is rove behind him?
Notice that there were no Ron Paul supporters arrested?
radicals will adopt any cause to get their cause heard, seems as they are picking a popular cause this time. Please clarify your report.
Looks like the tides are shifting in Iowa!
These Ron Paul fund raising numbers are lifting Dr. Paul into the top tier. He's in a virtual tie with Rudy and Thompson in Iowa, pulling even with Huckabee in New Hampshire and even beating Thompson in New Hampshire.
Maybe there just ARE enough apathetic voters this time to elect a candidate that isn't supported by the media giants and party elite.
Legalize the Constitution..........heck, pretty soon they will be asking for amendments for free speech, religion or the press.
These Ron Paul supporters are full of energy and actually want a constutional government ............blame it on GWB,,,,,,isn't he trying to force that on the folks in IRAQ?
Even though I'm not a Huck supporter of any kind, this is just dumb.
The Ron Paul supporters were out front of THEIR OWN CAMPAIGN OFFICE.
They had NOTHING to do with the people blocking Huckabee or the ones getting arrested.
Funny how the media doesn't bother to tell you that the Ron Paul office is nextdoor to the Huckabee office. Then again, it's not funny at all.
Geesh, can you write about something important like their positions on the issues.
Next you'll be talking about how Huckabee had toilet paper stuck on his shoe when he left the men's room and the mean Ron Paul supporters didn't tell him.
