[su_right_ad]Mike Huckabee is making his pre-presidential campaign all about social and cultural issues, and says he’d use the bully pulpit of the presidency to oppose gay rights.

The former Arkansas governor said that if he were elected president, he would use his bully pulpit to promote opposition to marriage equality, just as President Obama became “the leader cheerleader” for gay rights.

“Even though he didn’t call the family of Chris Kyle, the ‘American Sniper,’ when he was killed for all he had done for his country, he picks up the phone and calls an NFL football player and congratulates him for being homosexual,” he said. “How bizarre is that?”

“Since the president ‘came out,’ so to speak, you see court after court suddenly deciding that same-sex marriage is just fine; I’m convinced that it’s the president having given this legitimacy and sense of authority to the issue that has changed the debate,” he added, before once again claiming that governors and legislators can simply refuse to enforce federal court rulings on marriage equality.

    Mike Huckabee needs to face up to the fact that most people’s biggest concern presently is not social issues but the economy and foreign affairs. He doesn’t seem to have much interest in these and doesn’t realize that he’s on the wrong side on most social issues.

    Do you think 2016 is the year of Mike Huckabee? I think not.

      To be fair, Huckabee knows nothing about the economy and foreign affairs, and he has to appeal to his base somehow. That’s where pushing the ol’ “Jesus hates gays” meme comes in handy.
