Mike Huckabee was on Fox News Sunday today explaining that he is the only true conservative in the Presidential race. “Well, I’ve never switched my positions, for one thing. I have a record that doesn’t just talk about what I said I was for,” Huckabee said. He said he was different from rival Fred Thompson’s brand of conservatism. “Fred’s never had a 100 percent record on right to life in his
Senate career. The records reflect that. And he doesn’t support the human life amendment which is most amazing because that’s been a part of the Republican platform since 1980,” according to Huckabee. Huckabee also pointed out his differences with Thompson and John McCain who both believe abortion and gay rights should be left up to state rights by using the Civil Was as an example. “It’s the logic of the Civil War,” Huckabee said. “If morality is the point here, and if it’s right or wrong, not just a political question, then you can’t have 50 different versions of what’s right and what’s wrong.” Huckabee continued, “For those of us for whom this is a moral question, you can’t simply have 50 different versions of what’s right.” Huckabee showed the Fox audience his first T.V. ad which features Huckabee supporter, Chuck Norris. It is called HuckChuckFacts, and Huckabee and Norris swap facts about each other. In the ad Huckabee says” When Chuck Norris does a push-up, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the earth down.” Norris answers by saying, “Mike’s a principled, authentic conservative.” Fred Thompson didn’t see the humor in Huckabee’s ads. According to a Thompson campaign spokesperson, “With his new campaign ad featuring Chuck Norris, Mike Huckabee has confused celebrity endorsement with serious policy. What would Huckabee do to secure America’s border against millions of illegal immigrants pouring into our country? According to his ad, ‘Two words: Chuck Norris.” Shame on you Huckabee for having a sense of humor. That is something Hillary Clinton would do.
