Amend the Constitution “In God’s Standards”

Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has called for the US Constitution to be re-written “in God’s standards.”  Here is the video:

For those without audio, here is what Huckabee said: “I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution. But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God. And that’s what we need to do is amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than trying to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view of how we treat each other and how we treat the family.

I guess this country can only be saved when we have completed the fusion of church and state.

Romney Wins Michigan; Uncommited Showing Strong

Romney
Mitt Romney has won the third Republican primary contest, winning the thirty delegates from the state of Michigan. Here are the results:

  • Romney 39%
  • McCain 30%
  • Huckabee 16%
  • Paul 6%
  • Thompson 4%
  • Giuliani 3%
  • Uncommitted 2%

And Hillary Clinton has won the zero delegates awarded in Michigan’s Democratic contest. With only four names appearing on the ballot, the Democratic primary results were as follows:

  • Clinton 55%
  • Uncommitted 40%
  • Kucinich 4%
  • Dodd 1%
  • Gravel 0%

One might call it a Clinton victory if only her name wasn’t the most (if not the only) recognizable name on the ballot. It was expected to be an even larger landslide for Clinton in a primary contest that has no real value in the nominating process. There is a relatively strong showing of Kucinich supporters, though, considering he has to fight legal battles in order to appear in a televised debate.

On the Republican side, Ron Paul has once again received more than double the votes of Rudy Giuliani; perhaps they should consider barring Rudy from the next televised debate.

Next up in the series is the state of Nevada, set for Saturday the 19th. For those of you looking further ahead, here is a copy of the primary schedule.
