Principle v. Power v. Dollars

Posted By on Mon, Oct 15, 2007 at 8:59 AM

Interesting. In this interview with Religion and Ethics NewsWeekly, Mike Huckabee suggests that his failure to attract support from some on the Religious Right is that "some of them, frankly, are more intoxicated with power than principle, and I know that's a pretty outrageous if not rather bold statement to make, but I think it's the truth. Some have become so acquainted now with power and have been so close to it that they forget that the purpose for which they got involved in politics was not to be close to power; it was to speak the truth to power." (P.S. -- We've tried to tell the national media that "nice guy" Mike Huckabee can get a little snippy.)

Wonder what he'll say if the religious conservatives who demanded that Mitt Romney clear his blind trust of an investment in a company that does stem cell research come calling on Huckabee. Huckabee, you'll remember from a blog post last week, has taken an honrarium and a mass book sale from the same company, Novo Nordisk, not exactly a blind trust investment. A prinicipled man would refund the money, right?
