Why Mike Huckabee isn't fit to be president
Mike Huckabee:

"I didn't get into politics because I thought government had a better answer. I got into politics because I knew government didn't have the real answers, that the real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives."


Imagine if a candidate said that his governance wasn't going to provide answers to our country's problems, but astrology would. All we need is to deeply believe in Linda Goodman's "Star Signs."

8. One of my favorite quotes from the last couple of years...
"Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You didn't place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible." -- Jamie Raskin

4. People intent on destroying the government shouldn't be in charge of the government.

7. I don't agree with Huckabee, but I'd hate to think the people who I've met
who work in government are the ones we have to depend on to solve America's problems.

9. I hope the repubs can knock him down
so he doesn't win the primary. There are lots of fundies out there, and even some non-fundies who are being taken in by him, and the thought of an anti-evolution anti-gay wacko prez who may be even wackier than bush makes me want to hurl.

11. Since Jesus wants him to be president...
... why can't He keep people from finding those old articles?

12. I do not like Mike Huckabee
He is my least favorite candidate by far. Fortunately for me (and maybe you) he is not well liked in a lot of Freeper circles because he is seen as soft on immigration.
