Huckabee: Another "Faux" (or better: a Subliminal) Christian ?
Republican pre-candidate , after a surprising surge last weeks, seems to be shrinking to his avarage size.
When I started to know a little about Huckabee, I was amazed by his feelings towards family values.
But it made me feel odd on his views on the State. He seems to be a "Do-Gooder" , from the right, but a Do-Gooder.
It is very difficult to choose among the actual Republican candidates. I really like Ron Paul´s on economy, but his views on Foreign Affairs and moral values could be described as a dream-come-true for many leftist.
Now Huckabee. Below you can find an excerpt of an acid opinion from Ann Coulter on him.
The most hilarious at all, is that Huckabee has a lot of weak points to be critcized by Republicans, but what arose from public debate this week was his TV ad. Many found "subliminal propaganda" behind Huckabee´s Christmas ad. Just because he seemed to be in front of a cross. My God. Huckabee is christian and believes in Jesus. So what? What could be more direct than a good old "Merry Christmas"?? He could be blamed for many things (as Ann´s points it out) but this accusation is silly.
I, for my part, am still on the search for the - at least - a less-worst Republican candidate for 2008. The race will be very, very difficult. Even if Republicans could win, I don´t know if there´s a reason to celebrate...
As far as I can tell, it's mostly secular liberals swooning over Huckabee. Liberals adore Huckabee because he fits their image of what an evangelical should be: stupid and easily led.
