I’m not a huge fan of Mike Huckabee. If he wins the GOP nomination I’d support him obviously. His social con status is strong and I respect him but I’m unsure he’s fiscally conservative enough and I’m not sure how he stacks up against Obama.
But I couldn’t agree more with Huckabee more with what he said about Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.
To recap, Mitch Daniels said that the next president “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues. We’re going to just have to agree to get along for a little while,” until economic issues are resolved.
He said of taxpayer funding of abortion, “maybe these things could be set aside for a while. But this doesn’t mean anybody abandons their position at all. Everybody just stands down for a little while, while we try to save the republic.”
I said in a post earlier this week that that was completely unacceptable.
And now it would appear that Huckabee still has some presidential aspirations as he came out swinging against Daniels, as reported by The Weekly Standard:
For those of us who have labored long and hard in the fight to educate the Democrats, voters, the media and even some Republicans on the importance of strong families, traditional marriage and life to our society, this is absolutely heartbreaking. And that one of our Republican “leaders” would suggest this truce, even more so. Governor Daniels is a personal friend and a terrific Governor, and I’m very disappointed that he would think that pro-life and pro-family activists would just lie down.
I couldn’t agree more. I can’t imagine anything that takes precedence over the protection of human life. I hope Mitch Daniels comes around in his thinking because many (including Deirdre respect him.)
