Check out this video showing Mike Huckabee talking about his desire to amend the Constitution in order to put it in line with Biblical principles:
“[Some of my opponents] do not want to change the Constitution, but I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God, and that’s what we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards.”
I think this shows that while Huckabee is very likable and personable, he simply doesn’t have the thoughtfulness needed to be the kind of leader we need in a president. If one would stop to think about that statement for a minute, it becomes painfully clear how absurd and un-American this positions is. Andrew Sullivan brings up a good point about how we’d handle divorce is Huckabee had his way. This along with Huckabee’s pandering to the Confederate Flag folks is evidence that his campaign is in trouble. He may win the battle in South Carolina but these kinds of statements may cost him the war.
