It’s a good thing it’s looking less and less likely that Mike Huckabee will get the Republican nomination because he keeps getting more and more delusional. Now he’s asking Jesus to stimulate the economy:
Mr. Huckabee has invoked Jesus’ name at many points in the primary season, but his extraordinary request marks the first time a presidential candidate has directly asked a deity to provide the nation with an economic stimulus package.
In a press conference in Mobile, Alabama today, Mr. Huckabee said that he had asked Jesus to stimulate the U.S. economy with “a fresh infusion of loaves and fishes.”
The former Arkansas governor was not specific about the exact dollar amount of the loaves and fishes that he had asked Jesus to inject into the U.S. economy, but advisors later said that it was somewhere in the ballpark of $70 billion.
Mr. Huckabee said that he had also asked Jesus to solve the nation’s mortgage crisis by “casting out the money lenders.”
Though I suppose if all he did was pray it would be at least somewhat better than what the current President has tried to do. The thing that cracks me up is that Huckabee gets all huffy anytime a reporter questions him on his religious beliefs claiming those are private matters that won’t affect his ability to be President. Then he goes and does something goofy like this which points all the attention on his religious beliefs.
If ever there was any doubt that Mike Huckabee is a Theocrat through and through then he just removed it while speaking here in Michigan before the primary:
The Raw Story | Huckabee: Amend Constitution to be in ‘God’s standards’
“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution,” Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. “But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that’s what we need to do—to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.”
When Willie Geist reported Huckabee’s opinion on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski was almost speechless, and even Joe Scarborough couldn’t immediately find much to say beyond calling it “interesting,”
Scarborough finally suggested that while he believes “evangelicals should be able to talk politics … some might find that statement very troubling, that we’re going to change the Constitution to be in line with the Bible. And that’s all I’m going to say.”
Troubling? Gee, ya think? After seven years of the Bush Administration I honestly thought that anything other than Bush would be an improvement. Mike Huckabee appears determined to prove me wrong. If this asshole actually somehow manages to win the White House I’ll have no choice but to seriously consider moving to a more sane country. I don’t know if I could handle sitting through four—and possibly up to eight—years of a Theocrat president.
