7 Debate Tips for Mike Huckabee

This debate will be one the toughest yet for Governor Huckabee due to his increased polls numbers in Iowa. Now that he’s not a blip on the radar, but has the potential to pull an amazing upset and head to NH with a lot of steam, he will walk out on the stage with a target on the back of his blazer. He will have to keep a watchful eye in multiple directions from the likes of Romney and Thompson, both vying for the authentic conservative nod in the Hawkeye State.

1. The most important theme of the debate will have to be consistency. He will have to let viewers know that he’s held to the same conservative principles on abortion, guns and fiscal responsibility for a long time and has not changed and catered his message with the times.

2. He will have to tactfully state that he’s not bankrolled his campaign or arrived in Iowa with all the money, but his message is resonating in the street because Iowans trust him to bring the core conservative values to the White House.

3. Do not let his opponents pin him on the Immigration debate. The license issues has come up and his counter can simply be what Obama has incorporated into the debate…because states has been essentially left to solve this issue, due to the federal government’s failure to comprehensively deal with the problem, as a matter of safety he had to protect folks with the added benefit of bring immigrants out of the shadows and on the path towards legalization.

4. His humor and candor have to be supreme as usual. Thompson and Romney are telegenic but stiff at times and Huckabee can give a wonderful contrast to their robotic approach to question answering.

5. Offense Offense Offense. You can’t appear desperate, but in calm low-key approach you have to respond damaging and strategically to criticisms of your plans and policy proposals. Comparing Romney’s formal positions to what Democrats/liberal proposals will bring the audience into the equation.

6. Talk about Hillary…this is another crowd pleaser and talk strong on fixing some of the challenges facing the party.

7. Put a more persuasive and Presidential demeanor to his appeal. Romney and Thompson probably have the edge on the Presidential look and feel category, unfortunately they both will give up some of it when they engage in the one-on-one battles required in a tough debate.
