Mike Huckabee: Palin wrong on Mrs. Obama

Posted By on Wed, Dec 22, 2010 at 8:48 AM

Mike Huckabee states the obvious: Michelle Obama's push for healthier children isn't some statist conspiracy, but common sense ideas to address the growing number of unhealthy children. This is but another example of 1) Palin's density and 2) the reason for Huckabee's higher standing in the polls, even among Republicans.

“Michelle Obama's not trying to tell people what to eat or not trying to force the government's desires on people,” Huckabee said. “She’s stating the obvious, that we do have an obesity problem in this country.”

He added: “The first lady's campaign is on target.”

Roby Brock notes that Huckabee frequently takes exception to Palin, but she mostly ignores him. Her greater commercial success has to grate on the Huckster, given his obession with wealth and material things.
