Mike Huckabee thinks that if one is critical of Winston Churchill, one insults the British. Uh - Obama returned a bust of Churchill that had been on loan from the British Embassy to Obama's predecessor. Huckabee has swallowed one of Glenn Beck's whoppers, hook line and sinker:
Both the British Embassy and the White House have said that the Churchill bust had not been a gift, but rather a loan that expired with Bush's presidency.Compare this Beck nut fodder:
BECK: Do you remember when we gave the big statue back, the bust of Churchill? Right after Obama got. In it didn't make sense to me, hasn't made sense to me. Any clues, any clues why this gift from the English after 9/11 was boxed up and sent back? I haven't figured out a reason. Why does Obama harbor animosity towards the British? I don't know. Why would he return the bust? A listener called me this morning. Said he had found information about Barack Obama's grandfather in an old Irish newspaper but couldn't verify it. I said okay, what is it? We looked into it. The information, took us about 20 minutes to find. It was out there, but until today I never heard about this information, and I'm kind of in the Barack Obama business, you know what I mean? I don't think you have. Maybe you have. What puts you in a position to act unexplainably in weird ways toward the ally? Something must have happened in your life and maybe this is a part of it.
To what Huckabee says here:
Good to know that Huckabee is enrolled in the Master of History course at Beck University:
