Huckabee: Another "Faux" (or better: a Subliminal) Christian ?

Republican pre-candidate , after a surprising surge last weeks, seems to be shrinking to his avarage size.

When I started to know a little about Huckabee, I was amazed by his feelings towards family values.
But it made me feel odd on his views on the State. He seems to be a "Do-Gooder" , from the right, but a Do-Gooder.

It is very difficult to choose among the actual Republican candidates. I really like Ron Paul´s on economy, but his views on Foreign Affairs and moral values could be described as a dream-come-true for many leftist.

Now Huckabee. Below you can find an excerpt of an acid opinion from Ann Coulter on him.
The most hilarious at all, is that Huckabee has a lot of weak points to be critcized by Republicans, but what arose from public debate this week was his TV ad. Many found "subliminal propaganda" behind Huckabee´s Christmas ad. Just because he seemed to be in front of a cross. My God. Huckabee is christian and believes in Jesus. So what? What could be more direct than a good old "Merry Christmas"?? He could be blamed for many things (as Ann´s points it out) but this accusation is silly.

I, for my part, am still on the search for the  - at least - a  less-worst Republican candidate for 2008. The race will be very, very difficult. Even if Republicans could win, I don´t know if there´s a reason to celebrate...
Happy Xmas...

As far as I can tell, it's mostly secular liberals swooning over Huckabee. Liberals adore Huckabee because he fits their image of what an evangelical should be: stupid and easily led.

Huckabee is just another MSM backed candidate. You expect change with this guy you will be disappointed. Vote for the guy who the MSM does not want you to vote for.

Actually leftists are full steam ahead with foreign intervention. Ron Paul is a Jeffersonian - hardly a leftists. He realizes that you try to run other people's country with your army they will run your army right out of their country just like we would do if it were us with foreign troops in our land. You can't give birth to democracy at the barrel of a gun - they have to be adopted.
