Huckabee – Reagan Would Have A ‘Very Difficult, If Not Impossible Time’ Getting Nominated Today

Via: Think Progress

Potential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee acknowledged this shift on Fox News today, telling host Bill Hemmer that even former President Reagan, the great conservative icon, would likely be unable to win a GOP primary in the current Republican “atmosphere”:

HUCKABEE: “Ronald Reagan would have a very difficult, if NOT IMPOSSIBLE TIME being nominated in this atmosphere of the Republican party.”

HEMMER: How come?

HUCKABEE: Because he raises taxes as governor, he made deals with Democrats, he compromised on things in order to move the ball down the field. As president, he gave amnesty to 7 million illegal immigrants. There were many things that would have been anathema. People speak of Reagan as if he was absolutely steadfast. He was in his convictions, but you have to govern in a way that is different that is different than the way you campaign.”

If not Reagan or Goldwater, how about Lincoln?

Not a chance.
