If there's one thing that Mike Huckabee cannot abide, it's a supposed news outlet with an agenda. Thank god we have Fox News around to offer an opposing agenda to the agendas of all the other agenda-having networks…
The former governor criticized Fox News' competitors: "If people only watch the three big networks and BS-NBC, as I like to call them — MSNBC — if they watch BS-NBC and the three networks, then I think sometimes we may be kidding ourselves because a lot of people will assume that Obama really is just doing a great job and he just can't get those crazy Republicans to help him out."
Ha! BS-NBC! Classic.
Huckabee suggested his network and conservative talk radio act as counterweights to that positive coverage of the president: "I think a lot of people, if all they do is listen to conservative talk radio and maybe watch Fox News, they assume that all of America is getting what I would call at least a balanced approach to understanding that there are a lot of real problems going on that Obama could do better on."
I gather that that means… something? I haven't quite worked out what, but I'm sure it's cogent.

Mike Huckabee on Barack Obama…
"In his administration and now on his re-election campaign, President Obama has surrounded himself with morally repugnant political whores with misshapen values and gutter-level ethics."
Wait, I'm confused. Is this an endorsement?

He hosts a Fox News show, he's a hardcore Baptist from the South, he plays the bass guitar for Capitol Offense, and he'll always be John McCain's "What if?" running mate. He is Mike Huckabee, and if evangelicals have their way, he'll be Mitt Romney's…
Over the past few weeks, Huckabee has emerged as the clear VP favorite among evangelicals and conservative leaders, many of whom are concerned about Romney's ability to mobilize grassroots Republicans.
"Romney’s going to have to have all of the support he can get from his base," American Family Association founder Don Wildmon told Business Insider. "He’s going to need somebody to get evangelicals who didn’t vote four years ago excited and go out to the polls. And Mike Huckabee is the only one who can do it in the way it needs to be done."
In case you wondered what that way is, consider this: President Obama's statement on marriage equality is only the stick that swatted the social conservative's nest. The GOP needs someone to guide those angry "traditional family advocates" (or whatever euphemism for bigoted zealots they're using nowadays) to the voting booth.
Unfortunately for Republicans, Romney's history on gay rights doesn't exactly inspire the "IT'S ADAM AND EVE!" base off their couches. Southern Republicans would be more inclined to mobilize if the GOP ticket had someone on it who was, well, just about the exact opposite of Mitt Romney in nearly every way, starting with not Mormon and moving on to not a carpetbagging Yankee.
Evangelicals are making Huckabee sound like a really good offer…

Mike Huckabee responds to Barack Obama's proposed requirement that contraception for women be covered by all health insurance plans…
"I remember very vividly when John F. Kennedy said that we are all Berliners. Well, in many ways, thanks to President Obama, we are all Catholics now."
I remember very vividly when Mike Huckabee said that we are all Catholics. Well, in many ways, thanks to Mike Huckabee, we are all, as the populace, overwhelmingly in favor of birth control.

Mike Huckabee on his reluctance to endorse a GOP candidate…
"I don't intend to endorse anyone before the Florida primary and perhaps not even after, until we settle on a nominee because I want to maintain a level of objectivity."
Good idea! Very pragmatic approach. Though, I think he should maybe consider waiting until after the general election concludes to see how that whole thing that pans out.
You don't wanna be too hasty with these things.
