Huckabee: Obama should be like Helms

Posted By on Tue, Jul 8, 2008 at 8:06 AM

They are rolling tape on Mike Huckabee as a Fox commentator and, already, he's building a trove of trash talk.

Obama v. Jesse Helms:

“What a contrast. The thing that many of us loved and admired about Jesse Helms was that here was a guy, he didn’t care what you thought about his view, but you were going to always know where he stood because he stood for something and he stood clearly. I think we’re not seeing that in Barack Obama, especially in relationship to his position on the war.”

Yep, ya gotta love ol' Jesse, a man unafraid to hate.

The GAO's not-so-rosy assessment of progress in Iraq:

Huckabee answered, “Well, I think once again, there are some people who just don’t want us to win this war.”

Huckabee gets the last laugh, I concede. Fox loves this stuff. They're developing a pilot talk show for him.

Here's a transcript.

Think Progress recalls some of Helms' greatest hits, as when he said “[c]rime rates and irresponsibility among Negroes are a fact of life.”
