Huckabee’s attack ad on Romney said something very interesting: “No executions. Supported gun control. And Romney’s government-mandate health plan provided a $50 co-pay for abortion.” This really shows the need for a consistent ethic of life, and the clear limits of a political marriage with the evangelical movement. Huckabee is supporting the culture of life on abortion, but (in the same breath) opposing it with the death penalty and gun control. And even for somebody who supports the death penalty, isn’t there something a little obscene about attacking your opponent for not executing anybody?
