Because Glen Beck doesn't like him! Beck blasted Huckabee for supporting the FLOTUS' initiative on childhood obesity. I also supported Michelle's efforts.
A good reason to like Huckabee? Hmmm, he is Not here in Arkansas anymore! lol
Given the substantial amount of weight Huckabee has himself lost,it makes sense that he would support the childhood obesity campaign.
The sign of a GOOD politician is that s/he supports GOOD legislation -- even if it is presented by a member of the "opposition."

Wow! You guys are making my head swell! My comment was tongue-in-cheek. I think you guys know how I feel about Beck - can't wait till he leaves TV. Huckabee seems calm and level-headed, and he's a likeable guy. I'm not sure what kind of POTUS he'd make - he's too socially conservative - but he does appear to be fair-minded.

There you go again, Karl.He now claims that Obama won by "suppressing" the vote. That is classic Rovian technique!! Twist the truth 180 degrees and accuse the other side of doing exactly what your side is actually doing. (similar example, Romney coopting the idea of "reaching across...

It was a bad new/ good news scene for me yesterday. I find out the famous Obama girl didn't even bother to vote on Super Tuesday, but in finding this out I found a gem showing why we should get Hucklebee into the White House. You won't even remember Obama girl after Huckabee Girl.this link...

What do you do when you're awake until the wee hours for no good reason?I've been noticing I've been spending more than a few late nights creating hubs, reading hubs, and just generally dawdling around hubpages. Wondering if there's others out there, or what you guys do when you find yourself up...
