Look what I can do, America!

The more I hear from Mike Huckabee outside the debates, the less I like.
" 'American foreign policy needs to change its tone and attitude, open up, and reach out,' Huckabee said. 'The Bush administration's arrogant bunker mentality has been counterproductive at home and abroad.' "
Um...Isn't that a Democrat talking point? One debunked recently and often with the election of several pro-U.S. governments in Europe?

What I'm hearing is the kind of modern Christianity usually defined as "seeker-sensitive" -- heavy on the compassion talk because darn it, people like sweet baby Jesus more when you talk that way. Fire and brimstone is so God-of-the-Old-Testament. (Never mind the P.R.-nightmare of a fact that the Almighty never changes age-to-age last time I checked both Testaments.)

It's the same kind of talk that Dubya rose to power on, and, were it not for his boldness in the war on terror, would have had him ridden out of the party on a rail long ago for the billions in tax money he's allowed spent to make people appreciate compassionate conservatives more.

You can hear it in Huckabee's "heart for the downtrodden" immigration idiocy as governor. Now he's signaling that he's up for a foreign policy along the same lines.

Ann Coulter is right. He's not being called the Republican Jimmy Carter for nothing, folks.
