Mike Huckabee, polling in single digits, says more stuff

Posted By on Fri, Aug 14, 2015 at 9:59 AM

Mike Huckabee
has a problem, which is that people keep forgetting that he is running for president. We haven't forgotten you, Huck! 

Anyways, his latest attention-seeking move is to say that God might take a holiday from blessing America unless we defund Planned Parenthood and unless the executive branch unilaterally overrules the Supreme Court on Roe v. Wade. I think a re-write of "God Bless America" called "God Bless America Unless..." would get a little more media attention than this warmed-over red meat. Losing his touch! 

Raw Story reports

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said on Thursday that God may not bless America again until the “nightmare” of Planned Parenthood came to an end.

Speaking to a crowd at the Iowa State Fair, the former Arkansas governor said that the “steering mechanism” for the country needed to be based on “the laws of nature’s god.”

“Let us never apologize for who we are as a country,” he remarked. “A country that cannot be explained apart from the providence of God himself. There is no other explanation for the United States of America other than his providence and intervention.”

“And if we are going to invoke his blessing as we often do,” the candidate continued. “Here’s something we always say at the end of our speeches, ‘God bless you and God bless America.’ Every Democrat says it, every Republican says it.”

But Huckabee warned that Americans could not expect to “invoke God’s blessing on this country if we continue the slaughter of unborn children in their mother’s wombs, 60 million of whom have passed away since 1973.”
