    Default Huckabee slams Natalie Portman for "Child out of Wedlock"

    Mike Huckabee was not celebrating for Natalie Portman as she accepted her Best Actress Oscar on Sunday night -- he was passing moral judgments.
    During her speech, Portman thanked "Black Swan" co-star turned fiance Benjamin Millepied for "the most wonderful gift," -- their baby, due later this year. Huckabee took issue with that statement, and the entire premise of her pregnancy, in an interview with conservative radio host Michael Medved on Monday.
    After a set up from Medved saying that most wonderful gift should have been "a wedding ring," Huckabee slammed the star actress -- and then all single mothers.

    However this is what he said about Bristol Palin when she had a child out of wedlock:

    “It ought to be a reminder that here is a family that loves one another. They stuck with each other though the tough times and that’s what families do." ... Huckabee said the surprise pregnancy announcement should not affect vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s support in the conservative and religious right communities. ... “I’m grateful for the way she’s being supported by her family."

    Go figure

    He's just trying to solidify the conservative base under his feet for the upcoming primary and Iowa/NH caucuses.

    Those kind of social plays will only hurt him in the general election, but Huckabee may be thinking he won't get to see the general election if he doesn't get his base in gear...and soon. Romney seems to be taking the poll position for this race.

    Nonetheless, that was a nice double standard in juxtaposition, Rog.

    What can you say? Obviously he's a politician and a hypocrite first and a human being second.

    Forget Huckabee, he's nothing more then a distraction.

    Only one candidate saying what needs to be said, Ron Paul.

    Personal choices is not an issue that will get Obama out of DC.

    It's about the economy, jobs and the dollar.

    Funny.

    I actually saw the interview. And that's not what he said at all.

    Funny how something gets "spun" by the interpretation of ONE individual.

    Did YOU see the tapes?

    What he said was (this is MY interpretation) is "that not every single mother has the resources (MONEY) to raise a child by themselves and that A LOT of children who have single mothers are on some sort of gov't assistance"........

    I pretty much think that's true don't you?

    That's exactly what he said and yes the media will twist it to suit thier agenda. That why I feel it important that any candidate keep the message on what can win an election.

    Holy Moly, Lee...you mean to say you are taking on that entire "We can smell hypocrisy in the conservative party a mile away" triumverate? Do you realize what that means? And finding something truthful will only get you reviled by that threesome. After all, they forgot more than any conservative will ever know.

    And furthermore, they and their beloved messianic followers have absolutely NO hypocrites in their crowd. They are all perfect, and if you don't believe them, just ask any of them.
