As an indication of the cluelessness of our elites, David Brooks offers a paean to Mike Huckabee entitled "From the Back of the Pack" (link). Expect this attempt by our elites to push Huckabee to succeed about as well as their attempt to push through "comprehensive immigration reform". As an example of David Brooks' cluelessness, consider this:
[E]ach of the top-tier candidates makes certain parts of the party uncomfortable. Huckabee is the one candidate acceptable to all factions.
Except, of course, to the "faction" that supports enforcement of our immigration laws and that opposes illegal immigration. As discussed here for years, Huckabee has been a strong supporter of illegal immigration. And, he does it in a sanctimonious way that's even more annoying than George Bush.
I don't know the extent to which Huckabee's stance is known, but I very strongly urge everyone to go to his campaign appearances and ask him this question and then publicize his response.
