Huckabee, Mr. Life Purity, just advocated dropping the riders in the Budget Bill that would defund Planned Parenthood.
In an interview Friday on Fox Business Network, the potential 2012 presidential hopeful said the GOP should avoid a shutdown at all costs "because the consequences of that are going to hurt the Republicans, not the Democrats."
"Nobody's more pro-life than me. Nobody," Huckabee said. "But as much as I want to see Planned Parenthood defunded, as much as I want to see NPR lose their funding, the reality is the president and the Senate are never gonna go along with that. So win the deal you can win and live to fight another day."
How is it that he gets away with this? Daniels, who has a 100% pro-life record got blasted by Mr. Life for calling for a truce. But Huckabee is actually calling for a truce. Huckabee, you big, fat, hypocrite! He gets away with it because he used to be a Baptist minister and is therefore above reproach with the life crowd. No way would Palin, Romney, Christie, Daniels, or even Pawlenty get away with this. Where is your outrage Huck's Army? Texas Conservative? Don't all of you believe in taking no prisoners, making no deals or compromises?
