Why Liberals Fear Huckabee

Liberal Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson has an attack op-ed up today on Mike Huckabee.  Based on my reading, it seems Robinson dislikes Huckabee because he believes Huckabee really means the things he says.

Robinson is less worried about Rudy Giuliani, because:

... Giuliani, when pressed, admits to harboring fairly cosmopolitan and enlightened views on domestic issues such as abortion, immigration and gun control.

... And he's not afraid of Mitt Romney, because:

... Romney's pandering still hasn't managed to dispel the notion that, beneath the rhetoric, he's probably a pretty reasonable guy.

So Robinson dislikes Huckabee because he thinks that, unlike Rudy and Romney, Huckabee might actually govern -- not just campaign -- as a conservative?

Here's the money quote:

Much is made, and rightly so, of Huckabee's vocation as a Baptist minister and his promise that his actions as president would be in accord with his fundamentalist beliefs. "My faith is my life -- it defines me. I don't separate my faith from my personal and professional lives," he says on his campaign Web site. 

Somebody go check Jefferson's grave; he's spinning again.

The more secular liberals bash Huckabee, the better he will do.
