I have been disappointed by the venom that I have seen from conservative pundits when it comes to their treatment of Governor Mike Huckabee. I know that he shouldn’t get a pass and that his record is up for scrutiny just like any other candidate, but the attacks toward Governor Huckabee has been over-the-top and mean-spirited. With some of the posts and comments I read on some conservative blogs I would have thought I was reading Huffington Post or Daily Kos.
Also Joe Carter of Evangelical Outpost also shares his take on why this is the case in his post – “The Manhattan Conservatives Endorse Romney“.
Michael Medved has a great article on Townhall.com about why Huckabee’s drive helps the GOP, and shouldn’t be seen as harmful.
Then there is the whole brouhaha over Governor Huckabee’s Christmas Ad, you can watch it here and then watch the Governor’s comments on the ad here. One of the more outrageous statements was from Congressman Ron Paul who said on Fox News’ Fox and Friends show.
It reminds me of what Sinclair Lewis once said. He says, ‘when fascism comes to this country, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross.’ Now I don’t know whether that’s a fair assessment or not, but you wonder about using a cross, like he is the only Christian or implying that subtly. So, I don’t think I would ever use anything like that.

I’ve seen this video a number of times and I’m still flabbergasted. Simply outrageous. Well it seems like the more often the hits come the higher Huckabee goes in the polls, so I guess keep them coming.
