Potential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he isn’t going to question President Barack Obama’s faith, but notes that “it certainly would be helpful if he would show a little love to the people that are unapologetically Christian.”

The former Arkansas governor, who was a GOP presidential candidate in 2008, also would like the president to attend a National Day of Prayer.

Story continues below.




Asked about Obama’s outreach to Muslims, Huckabee said during an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV: “I don’t mind him reaching out to Muslims as long as he’s reaching out to them in the same way that he’s reaching out to Christians or people who are Jewish. But what I’ve seen is that he has chastised the Jewish people for wanting to have neighborhoods for their children to grow up in. He’s certainly not been overwhelmingly kind to Christians who have a real conscience issue with things like abortion.”

Huckabee, who was in Washington to speak at the Values Voters Summit, said Republicans nationwide are keyed up for the midterms.

Asked where tea party support might land if he and Sarah Palin sought vied for the GOP nomination for 2012, Huckabee demurred, saying: “Well, you’ve asked me to go from being a politician to a prophet and I’m not one so I’m not even venturing there to make that prediction.”

The Values Voter Summit, which began Thursday and ends Sunday morning, is the fifth annual such gathering of conservative activists and politicians. Sponsors include the legislative arm of the Family Research Council, the legislative wing of the American Family Association, and the Heritage Foundation, among others.
