Demonstrating his brand of moral leadership, former Gov. Mike Huckabee showed how he believes a Bible-inspired Presidential aspirant should take a stand against long-time symbols of racism such as the flying of the Confederate flag on state property:
Huckabee Says Let SC Decide on Flag — Pressed later on whether he finds the flag offensive, Huckabee refused to give an opinion.
''It's really not something that is an issue for the president of the United States; that's an issue South Carolina would deal with,'' Huckabee said at a news conference in Columbia, S.C.”
Even if one believes — as one well might — that federalism concerns make this a state issue as a legal matter, that doesn't absolve national figures from offering moral leadership. Or from showing their true colors.
