Here, Huckabee takes on Saudi Arabia for human rights abuses. Huckabee also appears to be taking a shot at the Bush administration's "muted" response to the Saudi government for punishing a woman who was gang raped. (For some bizarre reason, the woman was both the victim of a crime and responsible for it.) Okay, so far so good. I agree with the Governor that the Bush White House has been soft on standing up to the Saudi Government. But then Huckabee goes farther, perhaps too far: His solution? Other than the most extreme environmental nut jobs, I have never heard a politician say he would make the United States energy independent, much less in 10 years which is an alarmingly quick rate. Little wonder that when pressed: Kinda figures. But if it's any consolation, his website says he'll invest in, "all avenues of alternative energy: nuclear, wind, solar, hydrogen, clean coal, biodiesel and biomass." So, is Huckabee for real? Can we really look at the world's largest oil producing nation and tell them to "keep their oil just like they can keep their sand?"
