I’m happy to see Huckabee praise Michele Obama

Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move program is a counterweight to agricultural subsidies that have helped make us fat!

Says USA Today:

…count among her defenders former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, now leading the field of prospective Republican 2012 contenders in a new Gallup Poll. (See OnPolitics item.)

He says some Republicans have criticized the campaign, focused on childhood obesity, “because she’s the one presenting it.”

“She’s been criticized. . . out of a reflex rather than out of a thoughtful expression,” Huckabee said at a session with reporters hosted by The Christian Science Monitor. “It’s exactly what Republicans say they believe, which is you put an emphasis on personal responsibility. . . . I thought that’s what we were about.

“I think we should be thanking her and praising her.”

Huckabee has had his own battles with weight.
