Mike Huckabee on Fox News Sunday, 1/27/08

Huckabee said some things that I agreed with in his interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday (1/27/08).

One the issue of the economy he was asked by Chris Wallace about Romney’s claim that he would be best suited to navigate the country through an economic downturn, which Huckabee has disputed.

He started talking about his extensive executive experience as Lt. Governor and Governor of Arkansas.  But what impressed me was his point about how the other Republican candidates at the Dearborn Michigan debate had said the economy was okay, but that is because they are at the top of the economic pyramid.  He talked about how if you talked to the average worker, they felt that things aren’t too good and have felt that way for awhile.  He also said that recessions were trickle up from the lower income classes to the investor class.  You can see that from 2:20 to 3:15 of this you tube clip.

The other part that I liked is that he went big tent on faith or lack of faith.  Granted it was related to a very pro-life opening, but he talked about Catholics and even people of no faith.  That is very different than Romney’s position that freedom requires religion.  This can be seen from 4:50 to 5:10 on the clip.

Now as much as I like these to aspects of his interview, I can’t see myself ever voting for him.  But I did want to point out  some of his encouraging language.
