Carol Platt Liebau: Huckabee's Missed Opportunity

Huckabee's Missed Opportunity

As a Baptist preacher, Mike Huckabee was uniquely positioned at the CNN/YouTube debate to dismiss the inappropriate questions about Jesus' views on the death penalty and Biblical interpretation.

What a shame he missed an opportunity to do something good for the GOP and, more importantly, for the nation by making it clear that theological questions are not appropriate subjects for inquiry in a presidential election.

That, and more, is the topic of my Townhall column.

Thank you for writing about the Huckabee commercial of him touting himself as a "Christian" leader, an obvious slam at Mitt Romney and quite possibly at Rudy Giuliani. It is the language of Mr. Huckabee that will set back the conservative movement and the Republican party. When we vote in any election, we should be looking at where the candidate stands on any given issue. When we tout our religion to the detriment of those who do not believe the same way, we narrow who is a conservative. If you think that Ronald Reason was a great president, you can not be for a charlatan like the Rev. Mike Huckabee.

Hello Carol,

I just saw you on FOX, great job explaining your views and your book Prude, I blogged about it on my eBook & Book Reviews site at and also have a blog related to politics, "Married to Politics". Would love to swap links, will add yours one way or another.

I'm keeping a close eye on Huckabee, thanks for this post.
