Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee slammed the White House for its weakness on foreign policy, saying the United States' standing in the world has diminished under President Barack Obama and its next leader faces a tough task in rebuilding America's might.

He pointed to the current situation in Ukraine during his 10-minute speech at the Conservative Political Action Committee gathering in Maryland, and blasted Obama for allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to take advantage of our weakness.

I know the only time that Vladimir Putin shivers is when he takes his shirt off in the cold Russian winter," Huckabee said spawning laughter among CPAC attendees.

He said,  "no one trusts us, no one listens to us, no one respects us, no one fears us."

Huckabee, who is weighing a possible presidential campaign in 2016, says the United States has reduced its military power and other nations have taken advantage of it.

Huckabee spoke at the second day of CPAC.

Huckabee stuck to well-tested topics in the speech, moslty focusing on Obama's foreign policy mistakes and those of his administration.

He also threw down the gauntlet at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, suggesting that it is fair game to question her actions while in office as part of a future presidential run.

“Bill Clinton is not going to be on the ballot in 2016 or 2014. It’s very possible that his wife will. What she said, what she did, how she has served both as a senator, as secretary of state that’s all fair play,” he told reporters after his speech.

Huckabee also brought a message of traditional conservative values that led to mild applause from the audience when he spoke of providing better services for veterans and members of the armed forces.
