Huckabee: Romney Is 'Inauthentic'

Saturday, 21 May 2011 05:44 PM

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says Mitt Romney seems "inauthentic" on certain issues -- but he's still willing to support Romney if he becomes the Republican presidential nominee in 2012.

"We have some very strong philosophical differences on some things, but I've made it very clear that if Mitt Romney is the nominee, I'm going to be out there with him all the way," he told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.

Story continues below video.

Huckabee announced last weekend that he would not seek the presidency in 2012, but Romney is expected to. O'Reilly said it seemed as if the former Massachusetts governor "talked down" to Huckabee during a recent debate.

"I think there was some of that," Huckabee admitted. "There's nothing that irritates me more than if someone sort of gives me that feeling of, 'Oh, you're really not that significant.' ...

"I felt like there was a lack of authenticity on the sanctity of life issue, the same-sex marriage issue, the gun issue -- issues that really matter to people in the Midwest and in the South."

But, Huckabee says, that's all in the past.

"We've made peace. Mitt Romney's going to be a very strong candidate."
