MIke Huckabee’s Message to the President

President Obama is defending the humiliating and unconstitutional electronic strip searches by machines that are making its manufacturers filthy rich and the flying public hopping mad. The President also says that there isn't a choice about the federal fondling and groping of the private parts of totally law-abiding citizens by government agents. Mr. President, I issue a challenge --- if you don't find anything wrong with these practices that presume the guilt of an American before he or she proves innocence, then I ask you to take your wife, your 2 daughters, and your mother in law to Reagan National Airport and have them go through the full body scanner and then be subjected to the same and full body grabbing grope by the government agents that you authorized to do it. Do it in public where all can see. When you do that, maybe some of the rest of us won't be as angry as watching our wives, daughters, and mothers humiliated and degraded like criminals just in order to fly on a plane.

Huckabee is wrong.

It is of absolutely ZERO consequence to me that Obama & his family undergo strip-X rays or feelups.

What IS of consequence is that TSA adopt rationally-based screenings.

But "rational" and "gummint" do not fit in the same sentence.

Well, I did issue a disclaimer, didn't I? Besides, it really should be of consequence to you, if a change in policy is what you want. These people are making these decisions in a vacuum, and Huckabee is saying, remove the vacuum, before voters send another message -- like the last one, only worse.

TOTUS will declare that His Obama-ness & family are just fine and dandy with the procedure.

"Theater" doesn't apply only to "TSA security."

The Fourth Amendment prohibits "unreasonable searches and seizures."

If groping a nun in a wheelchair or a three-year-old, or the PILOT of the plane isn't unreasonable, then nothing is.
