Huckabee on Dubya

“American foreign policy needs to change its tone and attitude, open up, and reach out,” Huckabee wrote in the journal Foreign Affairs. “The Bush administration’s arrogant bunker mentality has been counterproductive at home and abroad.”– Mike Huckabee

This is coming from Bush’s right flank… Interesting.

But Huckabee is already backing down (sort of)

Then there’s this

“He seems like a nice charming guy… doesn’t believe in evolution and has some nutty views about what it is we should do about ending violence in our inner city — we should make sure all of our young people are armed. Republicans scare me.”

— Elizabeth Edwards

And this

Huckabee squashed charges against his son for stoning, hanging dog.

  1. Huckabee may be religiously to the right of Bush (if Bush can be said to be religious), but socially Huckabee is far to the left. In many senses of the word, he embodies the compassionate conservative Bush claimed to be (but isn’t). While he’s anti-abortion and anti-gay-marriage, he’s also pro social programs and pro environment in a way we haven’t seen even from Dems in some years. And, as you note, he’s for a foreign policy based on negotiation and trust. What a concept.

    Huckabee’s not my first choice for President, but we could (and probably will) do far worse. In a Huckabee-Clinton race, he’d get my vote.
