Huck to Beck: ‘Stick to Conspiracies’

The Hill reports:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee fired back at conservative talk host Glenn Beck Thursday, accusing Beck of likening him to a “Nazi” over his support for First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign.

On his radio show earlier this week, Glenn Beck labeled Huckabee a “progressive” for supporting Obama’s anti-obesity initiative, which has been roundly criticized by some on the right. Writing on the website of his political action committee Thursday, Huckabee took exception to that characterization, noting it’s a term Beck has equated to “cancer” and “Nazi.”

“What did I do that apparently caused him to link me to a fatal disease and a form of government that murdered millions of innocent Jews?” Huckabee wrote. “I had the audacity—not of hope—but the audacity to give respect to the efforts of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to address childhood obesity.”

Huckabee said while he has clear differences with the policies of President Obama, he has “appreciated” the First Lady’s efforts to combat childhood obesity — efforts Huckabee said Beck misrepresented “either out of ignorance or out of a deliberate attempt to distort them to create yet another ‘boogey man’ hiding in the closet that he and only he can see.”

    If the election cycle ends up being 4 years long, does that mean republicans will spend all of their time demonizing each other instead of democrats?

    It’s a very, very bad sign when Huckabee is the sanest person in the room.

    It’s a bad sign indeed, Gypsum. And let’s not overlook the fact that Huck, in light of his recent dabbling in birtherism, is totally hypocritical for calling out Beck as a conspiracist and paranoiac.

      Give credit where it’s due. Huckabee did appropriately stand up for Mrs. Obama’s program. A program that Rush (among others) has roundly mocked and lied about. Then he hits back at Beck. Clearly Huck isn’t running given the power those two men have amongst likely primary voters.

      This doesn’t excuse the birther/Kenya comments, but it was the right thing to say.

    I’m not entirely convinced that Huckabee’s birtherism is more than smoke and mirrors (and gaffes). The noise at the beginning of March often had the disclaimer that Huckabee believes that if there were anything to birtherism, the Clintons would have been all over it. I think there’s too much tea-leaf reading.
