From One News Now:
Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee believes Barack Obama is far too astute a politician to fall into the trap of implementing a far-left agenda in the early stages of his presidency -- and may even lay low until a second term before turning the country in a leftward direction......Huckabee's latest book is called Do the Right Thing: Inside the Movement That's Bringing Common Sense Back to America. The former Arkansas governor shares the hope of many conservatives that Obama will create a huge backlash by moving too quickly in the first year or so of his presidency to implement a left-wing agenda, similar to the approach Bill Clinton took when he assumed office in 1993...."Now if [Obama] goes in and does some really crazy things like pushes for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, and pushes for more liberalized abortion laws, and pushes a Fairness Doctrine or the restriction of Second Amendment rights, he will be doing the Republican Party a great favor, and all of us can only hope that he'll do that," he notes....But Huckabee admits he is afraid Obama is going to wait. "[T]he greatest fear is that he would lay low during an entire first term, govern more to the center, and then get [elected to] a second term with two more congressional election cycles behind him in which Democrats might pick up gains, and then turn the wheel sharply to the left," he says. "And there wouldn't be a whole lot [that] Republicans could do about it."....In the first year or two of Obama's presidency, Huckabee believes the 44th president could make far more of his liberal supporters angry than scare conservatives.
