Mike Huckabee went on the American Family Association’s radio show the other day with a message for the Republican party: if they don’t start breaking the law, he’s going to leave.
Incensed by the decision, Huckabee declared that “I am utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue,” warning that by doing so the GOP will “guarantee they’re going to lose every election in the future.”
“Guarantee it,” he said before proclaiming that the Republicans are going to “lose guys like me and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people” if the party does not stand and fight on the issues of gay marriage and abortion.
“I’m gone,” Huckabee warned. “I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this”
Oh please do this. Split the GOP. You want to talk about guaranteeing things, you will have handed the Dems every election. Then again, if the GOP doesn’t start getting more friendly to gay marriage, that’s going to lose them some elections too. This is where the country is headed regardless of the posturing of people like Huckabee.
