Mike Huckabee's FRC Speech

In 2007 Mike Huckabee's speech at the FRC conference helped kick his presidential campaign into high gear. I was unable to listen to all of it do to the press gathering around Pence. However I think he received more standing ovations than Mike Pence. He concluded with very forceful comments on foreign policy. He called Obama to stand with the people of Iran AND the people of Israel. He also received a standing ovation when he called out the left for "protecting terrorists more than the people". He also challenged the idea that we need to move to the center, just as Mike Pence did. However he compared us to David and how he fought with a sling instead of the armor he was reccomended to use to fight Goliath. The speech was finished with a call to serve the Lord as we retake America.

It will be interesting to see how the audeince takes the two speeches as they vote in the strawpoll.
