Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is feeling a lot of love since he announced that he won’t seek the GOP nod for president. Huckabee has received quite a few phones calls and messages after his announcement last weekend, WBKO-TV in Bowling Green, Ky., reported Friday.

Huckabee, GOP, president“I've never been so loved as the day that I dropped out,” Huckabee told the TV station. “If I had known I was going to be so lovingly spoken of I'd drop out a lot sooner. I like the love.”

Huckabee said he’s willing to help other candidates, but he worries that the harsh rhetoric between parties can get in the way.

"Over the past few month, I found more wounds coming from the back from people who are conservative because anything that I say . . . in any way . . . Well, maybe Michelle Obama's program about childhood obesity is a good idea. Suddenly I shouldn't have said that because I shouldn't say anything about anything those folks do. I can't live like that. I'm not going to live like that," Huckabee said.

Regarding GOP candidates, he said, "There's been talk about it being a weak field and I simply don't believe that. There's a lot of Republicans who are capable of being president."

He plans to take his time before endorsing anyone. He's going to wait to see how the field shapes up, he said.
