Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News Channel host Mike Huckabee weighed in on the escalating feud between establishment Republican politicians and conservative activist groups on Saturday. Asked for his thoughts on House Speaker John Boehners (R-OH) admonition of the idealized purism advocated by some outside groups, Huckabee sympathized with Boehner saying that governing is more difficult than activism and politics is not theology.
Huckabee began by saying that Boehner was not scolding the tea party movement but conservative groups that capitalize on that movement. He added that some of those groups appear to have an all or nothing mindset and that this mentality more often results in getting nothing.
When the movement becomes, sort of, focused in a handful of groups that are raising funds to attack Republicans and the criteria for being attacked is the difference you might have in the tactic of the party, not the philosophy of the party, I think that is what Boehner and the others are really reacting to, Huckabee continued.
Governing is tough, he continued. Politics is not theology. Its easy to be pure when you are talking about theology.

Shut up, Suckabee
So, Huck has gone RINO.
Next thing, he’ll raise taxes—then let in thirty million Mehhiccaan illegals............
BEEN gone RINO, for quite some time now.
It never ceases to amaze how so many LOSERS feel it’s their right to ‘lecture’ the WINNERS.
WINNERS: 2010 = Tea Party
LOSERS: 2008 = Huckabee, McCain, and so many others
I wish he had “scolded’ Todd Akin when this Missouri Senate candidate (non-Tea Party) asked for his advice on whether to stay in the race against McAskill after his idiot comments about rape. Instead, Huckabee egged him on and told him not to quit, Akin stayed in the race and gave us six more years of a senator who anyone else would have defeated.
Theology proved not to be a reliable predictor of political philosophy.
I think we’re willing to compromise on a good many things, just not the big ones he wants us to compromise on.
...and opportunistic machinations are not faith.
As opposed to establishment Republicans like Huckabee who aim for nothing right up front.
Your theology shows in how you live your life, the choices you make and ultimately how you vote. God says we will be held accountable for even the smallest things we do, say and think. “In Him we live and move and have our being!” Christians can’t escape theology, Christ is the living theology that dwells in men’s hearts!
He is just trying to maintain his Fox gig as another in a long line of GOPe’ers.
OK, I don't really dislike Huckabee that much. Maybe he could hang out there for a week, just to soak up the warmth and charm.
“Be content with your lot. It is better to eat the crumbs that have fallen off the table than to demand your fair share. Just do what the Democrats want, but slower. America was great while it lasted, but it’s glory days are over. Surrender. Give up. Resistance is futile. Poverty and failure are the future, embrace them.”
I guess this is why some keep begging him to run again.
“Politics is not theology. Its easy to be pure when you are talking about theology.
So now the IRS is perfectly justified for singling out Tea Party groups?
Another jerk speaks.
