I keep picking them off one by one, and I’m glad to. I’m trying to find a viable candidate worthy of my vote and I thought for a minute or two that Ron Paul might be the one. I had heard some good things about him concerning dollars and taxes, but now I have rescinded whatever good thoughts I had about his candidacy.
I’m not suggesting that the president has to be a Christian–far from it. I don’t know of too many presidents who have been Christians. But this statement by Ron Paul is simply absurd and indicates that he has very little concern for a very large portion of the voting population. This is an ignorant statement from someone who wants to be taken seriously. Kudos to the reporter for calling him on it. I guess Paul thinks that it is ok for every presidential candidate to have a religious position or none and talk about it but Huckabee can’t.
On the other hand, perhaps it was planted by Huckabee. Did he not edit this video before it aired? Perhaps this was Huckabee’s Constantinian moment: “In this sign, you will conquer”? Whatever.
Anyhow, Ron Paul has issues. Huckabee has issues. Frankly, there is not one single candidate in the running at this point who would get my vote for president.
