Fox News host Mike Huckabee slammed President Barack Obama's defense of the Transportation Security Administration's new intrusive pat-down screening measures at airport security checkpoints. On his website Monday, the former governor of Arkansas and potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate wrote that he disagreed with Obama's assessment that "there isn't a choice about the federal fondling and groping of the private parts of totally law-abiding citizens by government agents."

Huckabee, scanners, Obama, airport, securityHuckabee issued a challenge to Obama to submit his family to the same "humiliating and unconstitutional electronic strip searches by machines that are making its manufacturers filthy rich and the flying public hopping mad." He wrote: "If you don't find anything wrong with these practices that presume the guilt of an American before he or she proves innocence, then I ask you to take your wife, your two daughters, and your mother-in-law to Reagan National Airport and have them go through the full body scanner, and then be subjected to the same and full body grabbing grope by the government agents that you authorized to do it. Do it in public where all can see.

"When you do that," Huckabee added, "maybe some of the rest of us won't be as angry as watching our wives, daughters, and mothers humiliated and degraded like criminals just in order to fly on a plane."
