Mike Huckabee may not be willing to recant his disgusting HIV/AIDS statements, but the presidential candidate says he’s willing to meet with Jeanne White-Ginder, whose son Ryan died of AIDS in 1990.
White-Ginder called on Huckabee to apologize for suggesting we quarantine AIDS patients. So did HRC. Speaking in Iowa today, the former Governor of Arkansas said he’d be willing to sit down with his critics.
I would be very willing to meet with them. I would tell them we’ve come a long way in research, in treatment.
I certainly never would want to say anything that would be hurtful to them or anyone else. I would have great regret and anxiety if I thought my comments were hurtful or in any way added to the already incredible pain that families have felt regardless of how they contracted AIDS.
Apparently he doesn’t read all the criticism as people’s pain.
Right. He mean “quarantine” and “isolate” in the kindest, sweetest, least offensive hurtful or painful way possible.
I’m with Matt. He’s an idiot.
As IF someone like Ryan White’s mother NEEDS his exiJESUS [sic] on research and treatment, however too late for her son. How bad is it when someone from the Fox-TV Reich like Chris Wallace has to bitch slap someone about their anachronistic facism?
Dr. Frances prescribes this treatment for Huckabee, Romney, and Giuliani: 1. drop trou. 2. Place penis on chair. 3. Scream for mercy while someone nails penis to chair.
And, has anyone asked that old, slimey, leathery, drooling patriarch of the American Taliban William Buckley what he thinks of Huckabee? Just two year ago, Buckley renewed a heinous suggestion he’d made several years before for people with HIV:
“The objective is to identify the carrier, and to warn his victim. Someone, 20 years ago, suggested a discreet tattoo the site of which would alert the prospective partner to the danger of proceeding as had been planned. But the author of the idea was treated as though he had been schooled in Buchenwald, and the idea was not widely considered, but maybe it is up now for reconsideration.”
Log Cabiners: don’t say you weren’t warned.
Aww. The neo-fascist would have great anxiety if he thought his hate-filled comments caused anyone any pain.
Want some good news? Polls out last night show that this guy would lose by double-digit margins to any of the Democrats. That might be due to name recognition, but I’m hoping that it means the general public might be moving away from this type of ignorance.
Don’t put your faith in polls.
“I would have great regret and anxiety if I thought my comments were hurtful…”
See, he WOULD have great regret, but it’s clear that actually his comments weren’t hurtful at all, it’s just a mass delusion… O_O It’s all in our heads, people, he’s a nice guy really. He says he’d even feel regret, what more can you ask for?
