Huckabee cashes in on 9/11

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2011 at 9:58 AM

Just in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Mike Huckabee is hawking a new "history" DVD on the terror attacks as part of his "Learn Our History" series.

"Join the TimeCycle Academy as they travel to one of the darkest days in our history...but also a day of incredible bravery and a triumph of the American spirit," the preview video teases, as the attacks are quickly followed by President Bush promising retribution and the U.S. "breaking apart Al Qaeda."

In an interview yesterday on the 700 Club, Huckabee said the video would teach kids, "what really happened that day."

More highlights:

He said his series "really bring[s] attention to the spiritual foundings of this country."

Agreeing with host Pat Robertson, who suggested that education is failing American children, he said, "If you look at a typical text book today, you'd think that America is an imperialistic, war-mongering country that's gone around pushing people around for the last 250 years," Huckabee said.

And he had some statistics: 98% of the children who watch the series love it, and — wait for it — 89% of liberals who watch like it, too!
