Count me among those who are glad Huckabee won’t run. As I wrote last July:
Huckabee is a committed social conservative. From what I have seen, he is devoutly religious, and often shares his views about faith. Huckabee seems like a nice guy, a good neighbor. But America is not craving a social conservative. We don’t need a “feel-good,” “compassionate,” president, we need someone willing to take radical liberals like Pelosi head-on. We need a fiscal conservative willing to slash the runaway entitlement spending built up by Congressional Democrats. Huckabee may be the most moral presidential candidate in recent history, but I struggle to imagine him rolling back liberal regression.
My sentiments toward him haven’t changed much over the last year, so it’s great news to learn he likes having a show on FOX News. If only Newt Gingrich had a TV show ….
Here is the video of Huckabee’s announcement:
