George Will or Mike Huckabee - Which is Appalling?

In a recent article, "conservative" opinion writer, George Will, asserts that Mike Huckabee is on an appalling crusade. Nice choice of words since these days the word crusade has inappropriately negative connotations. Seems fitting that Mr. Will would be working for the left-leaning paper, the Washington Post.

PRT is not a huge Huckabee supporter. The jury is still out on that one. However, it was surprising to see the article by Mr. Will. Throughout the article, one is waiting to hear what is so appalling. Perhaps Mr. Huckabee has done something out of the ordinary or put his foot in his mouth. Only when one reads the entire article, do you understand that George Will has now a tool of the left. How more effective could one be than to espouse liberal ideology while presenting oneself as a conservative.

The set-up of the opinion is how terrible it was for folks in the unenlightened years to consider divorce (and Catholicism) a restriction to being elected President. Then comes the demeaning part calling Mr. Huckabee an "apostle" and denigrating his choice of book and tour names while inserting pompous words such as "alliterative". Sorry, but PRT had to look that one up; not as highly educated as Mr. Will.

After this, he compares Huckabee to Robert Dole. You know the one. The individual who performed so well in his own Presidential bid. Mr. Will thinks that only Senators should be Presidential candidates? Mr. Will, what is wrong with Huckabee's vow to "take back this nation for Christ"? What is wrong with equating evil in the world to a retreat of our Christian values such as prayer in schools? No. Prayer in schools solely will not solve the problem, but it is an illustration of where we are.

No, George Will. Huckabee's views on these issues are not appalling. What is appalling is to turn our backs on what made this nation great; our foundation is either completely gone or will soon be gone. The only thing holding this formerly great nation together are the remnants of the Christian foundation upon which it was built. when that is completely eliminated by the whims and wisps of current public opinion, all will be lost.
