    Re: Huckabee likens gay marriage to incest, drugs, and polygamy

    Duncan Hunter from California had some pretty good fiscal sense and wasn't a total right-wing Bible-thumping loon when he was running a couple years ago. Of course, I think that he couldn't get his name out because Rush Limbaugh's "Operation Chaos" backfired - and tons of Democrats crossed-over in primaries that normally never did before.

    For all the spinelessness that is going on in the GOP, I'm just waiting for a blue-dog to rise among the ranks and bring some sanity to the big-tent party. I'll vote for a Democrat if they really impress me.

    You're waiting to be impressed by the major parties?

    Good luck with that.

    Maybe impress is a wrong word.

    How about "content". Or at least "not totally pissed".

    I really think Huckabee is like a political manipulator. I've never supported the man and I think he really has no real values or principals. He is a mirror of what his audience wants to see and a parrot repeating what they say and want to hear back. I really have a hard time taking anything he says seriously.

    I think there will come a day when most of the country views Huckabee as we currently view the white supremacist politicians of the 60s.

    His gay adoption line was particularly bad.

    But we have no access to his unabridged words. Only the thoughts from someone summarizing them.
    Exactly. I just finished a google search for the actual words, which don't seem to be available anywhere. There are lot of comments about what he said, but not his actual words. Why not publish the actual interview and let us make up our own minds?

    This sort of thing happens all the time with any high profile pol. "He/she said that" followed by the author's version of what was said, but never the actual words.

    Here is what Huckabee has to say about what they're saying about what he said:


    April 12, 2010 - 07:22 PM
    Statement from Mike Huckabee Regarding The Perspective Article From Friday April 9
    by Web Team
    Governor Mike Huckabee: "The young college student hopefully will find a career other than journalism. I would ask that he release the unedited tape of our conversation. I believe that what people do as individuals in their private lives is their business, but I do not believe we should change the traditional definition of marriage. Not only did he attempt to sensationalize my well known and hardly unusual views of same-sex marriage, he also inaccurately reported my views on Michael Steele as GOP chairman - I offered my support and didn't "Rip into Steele" as his article asserted. I had a candid and frank conversation with the group about health care, education, the economy and national security while the young journalism student, instead, chose to focus on the issue of same-sex marriage and grossly distort my views."

    There's the full audio of the interview, ironically I had just stumbled across the link to that, and saw this post.

    I did not expect it to embed here, just click on the title bar and it will take you to it.

    I did one of those "check which candidate you match up with politically" questionaires online early on in last election's primaries, and Duncan Hunter ranked top for me.

    I doubt Jesus would make an exception based off of how infectious something is. My point stands. Huckabee is only Christian when it suits him.
    I disagree. Huckabee is a Bible believing Christian. What you probably don't realize is that there is a lot of very hardcore, and frankly hateful stuff in the Bible. Especially in the Old Testament. Huckabee is not a cafeteria Christian. He takes the whole thing as the literal word of God.
