Baldwin: 'Christians need to beware of Mike Huckabee'

"...Is Mike Huckabee someone Christian conservatives should be supporting?" Possible 2008 Constitution Party presidential candidate Rev. Chuck Baldwin asks in his latest column, published on Alan Keyes' Renew America website.

Baldwin points several quotes among them is this one from President of the Eagle Forum Phyllis Schlafly: "He destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles. Yet some of the same evangelicals who sold us on George W. Bush as a 'compassionate conservative' are now trying to sell us on Mike Huckabee."

The 2004 CP Vice Presidential candidate goes onto attack Huckabee's illegal immigration with this quote from Jim Boulet, Jr., executive director of English First: "Rudy Giuliani spent years defending the right of New York City to remain a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Yet Giuliani was a veritable Lou Dobbs Jr. on illegal immigration in comparison to Mike Huckabee."

"Christians need to beware of Mike Huckabee. He is not a conservative. Even worse, he is not a constitutionalist. He is an opportunist, however. This is demonstrated by the fact that many of his supporters are openly posturing (with Huckabee's consent, obviously) for an opportunity to run Huckabee as a potential Vice Presidential candidate with either Giuliani or Romney at the top of the ticket," Baldwin says.
