Everyone must remember the controversy over this... http://youtube.com/watch?v=8xn7uSHtkuA Which makes me wonder about... Obama and the cross: A double standard? Much conversation this Sunday morning on the talk shows about the flyer that Barack Obama is distributing in Kentucky about the role of Christian faith in his life. ....... But another Republican, ex-Arkansas governor and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, had a bit of a gripe. Remember Huckabee's famous Christmas ad, in which the camera slowly pans over his shoulder to reveal something that looks like a white cross in the background? "I think it's interesting that nobody's jumping on Obama for this very blatant cross in his ad. And I took grief for months," Huckabee said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I'm still taking it, over something that wasn't even a cross. It was a bookshelf, for heaven's sake." He said a double standard existed for Republicans and Democrats who invoke their faith in campaigns. "If Republicans even get near a church, we are accused of embracing it," Huckabee said. He then, however, praised Obama as a "person of faith." http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2008/05/obama-and-the-c.html I have a hard time believing the Huckster on the sincerity of that bookshelf. Still though, why did he get grief, and Obama is not?
