Each day provides further and further evidence that Republicans are now vying as to who can utter the most outrageous comment in the quest to get Tea Party votes. Mike Huckabee wants the religious right to know that once he becomes president, they can forget about the issue of abortion. He is willing to consider any and all resources that could be employed to end the entire practice of abortion. He was asked if he would employ the National Guard to end the terror of abortion. His response:”We will see. If I become President” he will explore using the 5th Amendment, the 14th Amendment to protect the fetus in the womb.
His comments simply reflect the power now being imposed upon Republican candidates to say something wild in order to get on Fox News tonight. Ironically, the theme of Republicans is that Barack Obama wants more and more power. Mike Huckabee makes him come away as a state right president.
