SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Republican Mike Huckabee spoke from the pulpit yesterday, not as a politician but as the preacher he used to be, delivering a sermon on how merely being good isn't enough to get into heaven.
Huckabee is vying for support from the Christian conservatives who dominate the GOP in South Carolina, which will choose a Republican presidential nominee on Saturday. A former Baptist minister and Arkansas governor, Huckabee is competing for their votes with fellow Southerner Fred Thompson.
As in Iowa, where he won the Jan. 3 caucuses, Huckabee is rousing pastors to marshal their flocks for him. He pitches himself as someone who not only shares their views against abortion and gay marriage but who actually comes from their ranks....
Mike Huckabee panders to the global elite. The Council on Foreign Relations is not a US government organization it is a private/secret organization. See quotation of David Rockefeller from my previous comment (below).

Mike Huckabee recently named Richard Haas (the current President of the Council on Foreign Relations) as a principal advisor on foreign policy.
You will not get a perfect President - but you can sure do better than Clinton, Obama, Guiliani, et al.....Huckabee is better than most. I was impressed with his performance in the SC debate - he did not fudge his views on the Bible at all. Fair play to him for that. American Christians need to be thinking about who will be most sympathetic to Biblical positions on matters. Some of you geeks are guilty of begrudgery. When has America EVER had a truly evangelical occupant of the White House? In the last 100 years? Ever? Whatever happens God will still be King!
The status of Mike Huckabee began to rise after his presentation at the Council on Foreign Relations in September 2008.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." - David Rockefeller, Private Banker, CFR, June 1991
