Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee says that if he is elected president he will serve as the commander-in-chief rather than the meteorologist-in-chief. He’s also mocking global warming alarmists who, he says, think “the greatest threat to society is a sunburn.”
Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition conference, Huckabee took a shot at President Obama who just returned from a climate summit France aimed at getting countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
“The greatest threat to society is a beheading, not a sunburn” said Huckabee. He said that the next president of the United States needs to be “commander-in-chief, not the meteorologist-in-chief.”
During the question and answer portion of his talk, Huckabee was asked about race relations in America.
“Obama could have been one of the great presidents of all time, but chose not to be,” Huckabee said. Obama “chose to bring divisive spirit to the job of the president.”
Huckabee also made clear that he is against a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine.
