For a candidate who winces at getting asked all the “values” questions during the debates, God-o-Meter notes that Huckabee sure has a knack for using values to carve out his niche in the GOP field. When it comes to Mitt Romney, that means calling him a flip-flopper on abortion. When it comes to Fred Thompson, that apparently means calling him soft on gay marriage. Huckabee brags to CBN’s David Brody that Arkansas passed a constitutional gay marriage ban under his governship, then knocks Thompson for declining to support the Federal Marriage Amendment: “[I]t’s going to send a signal to conservatives that a person may not really be fully tuned in to the importance of maintaining the integrity and structure of marriage as we know it.”
