Huckabee reveals his ignorance again.

There is little doubt in the mind of this blogger that the absolute worst Republican, wanting to impose God's law on the rest of us, has to be Mike Huckabee, the fundamentalist moron from Arkansas. So, how uninformed and ignorant is Huckabee?

Consider his recent interview where he theorized as to why Obama allegedly has a very different foreign policy from George Bush. You may not have noticed that very different foreign policy. Don't worry, neither has anyone else.

When individual take up residence at the king's palace, I mean the White House, they frequently rearrange the furniture. Obama moved a bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office to his residence. Huckabee was sure this was a great insult to the British. I suspect no one in England actually noticed, and if they did, I highly doubt that they would think anything of it.

But Hillbilly Huck is a fundamentalist and used to exaggerating things in order to make them appear far worse than reality.

Huck's theory was that Obama doesn't like the British because of his "perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather. He probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather."

What is wrong with that theory?

For starters, Obama didn't grow up in Kenya. He did visit the country, when in his 20s. But he didn't grow up there.

As for the anti-British stories he would have heard from his father and grandfather, well that is so much BS as well.

Obama's father was Kenyan but Obama barely knew the man. His mother divorced him and remarried. Obama lived with his mother and step-father in Indonesia, which isn't even close to Kenya. Then at 10 he moved to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents.

Huckabee, when caught, said he misspoke. The problem is that he said the same thing several times. Huckabee was claiming that Obama has a very different view of the world, than the average American, because he was raised in Kenya. So what would be the correct thing he meant to say?

Later a spokesman for Hillbilly Huck claimed, "The Governor meant to say the President grew up in Indonesia." Wrong! He didn't mean that all, since that doesn't make sense either. Why would growing up in Indonesia subject him to fathers about Kenya from his father and grandfather. The whole context of Huck's statements were related to British colonialism in Kenya. None of it applies to Indonesia. Huckabee is just trying to cover up his own ignorance. Now, that has to be a full time job.
