Well, no big surprise that Mike Huckabee decided he was enjoying his well-paying gig over at Fox News so much that he's not going to run for president in 2012. If we weren't sure before he made it official tonight, this appearance by Ted Nugent on his show just prior to his "big announcement" should have tipped everyone off.
Nugent was asked what he thought about the killing of Osama bin Laden and although Nugent praised the decision to go in and get him, he downplayed the importance of them finally killing him by saying it didn't really matter that much in the overall "war on terror." Anyone think he wouldn't have been dancing around praising Bush as the best president ever if this had happened under Bush's watch?
And for all the talk from Huckabee about being a Christian and a man of god, why is he allowing someone who spouts off the kind of inflammatory, violent rhetoric we heard out of Nugent here on his show? I think we all know the answer to that, but I find it pretty ironic after all of the yelping over the rapper Common coming to the White House, on the night that one of the Republican Party's supposed "front runners" was potentially going to announce whether he was running for president or not, he chooses to bring someone like Nugent on to spout this nonsense:
