Huckabee Entrusts Fate to Higher Power

Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee called on supporters to pray for “God’s wisdom” as he entrusted his chances in Thursday night’s Iowa caucuses to a higher power.

The ordained Baptist minister appeared at a rally near Des Moines on Wednesday and was joined by martial arts star Chuck Norris.

He told the crowd that if he is to win the caucuses, “we won’t do it by going armed to the teeth and taking out the opponents. We will go to those caucuses having been on our knees and asking for God’s wisdom and standing to our feet and asking for His strength.”

Gary Walters, a Huckabee supporter and pastor who drove to Iowa from New Jersey to help the campaign, told Britain’s Daily Telegraph: “Mike Huckabee doesn’t have all the answers and he’s going to get on his knees sometimes and ask God for help. He’s the whole package and that’s a wonderful thing.”

The latest polls show Huckabee running neck and neck with Mitt Romney among Republicans in Iowa, and Romney has recently gone on the attack with ads branding Huckabee as soft on crime and illegal immigration.

Huckabee’s campaign manager Ed Rollins has adopted a more aggressive tone compared to Huckabee’s pious approach, saying the Romney is someone “whose teeth I want to knock out.”
