You know if I say anything nice about Barack Obama on this show some of you get angry and you send me some very nasty emails.
Because you think we -- -- never say a kind word about the man -- -- warn you now.
You might not like what I'm about to say.
Because I want to publicly thank President Obama.
You see he has single handedly done more to unify and energize the Republican Party then all of the presidential candidate.
-- -- A little over a week a go to force Catholic hospitals and universities to provide contraceptive and abortion pills in direct conflict with a long standing position of their faith.
Went over about as well as Michael Moore at an NRA convention.
I mean even loyal Democrats in -- -- five liberals were running from the exits.
Just to get away from -- before -- self come busted from the heat that he got.
And I'm not just talking from the Catholics.
But while this issue was direct threat to religious liberty within the Catholic Church.
It is an issue that is much bigger.
It threatens the very essence of liberty by allowing government to dictate matters of individual discretion.
Even if there wasn't a direct and wholly unconstitutional assault on the religious convictions of Catholics and other Christians.
It is simply not the government's right to demand that I as an employer provides something that I don't wanna give or my employees don't even -- -- have.
Now if the president.
That I provide contraceptives.
Or even abortion today then next he might demand on limited mental health coverage or some other form of health coverage.
He would then insisted employs be covered for dental work.
Even cosmetic surgery.
Maybe a face -- for this -- -- might mean some improvement.
But I'm not sure that it's a necessary function of the president to demand it.
The president's -- and laughable attempt to make things better by playing the shell game of moving from that cost of holy cross to blue cross is unacceptable.
And it's not just about adding forced insured benefits for people it's about taking away the rights of self determination from people.
No president has been granted that level of -- Or power from the constitution.
And simply fails to meet the test of the consent of the governed.
I'm not even a Catholic but I am on movable.
And I to object to the notion.
But I would be required by the dictates of one branch of government.
Our legislative process to surrender the terms of my faith and freedom to satisfy left wing.
Robbing -- life lunatics I just won't do it.
You know Nancy Pelosi was right about at least one thing.
That we have to pass the bills so that you can.
Find out what is in it.
-- -- well they pass it and now we know.
Here's what I do I call upon speaker Boehner to put the entire -- care bill back on the table for another vote this week.
Was just find out who's willing to put his or her name on it now that we know what's in it.
It's time for Obama to repent and congress to repeal.
You can do so I'm going.
Want to Mike Huckabee dot com.

About a wave in my book New York time best selling -- simple government and boy congress could use some lessons right now in simple government Willits out in paperback now.
Got some revisions and not only is it in Paper it is such a simple easy -- my grandson Chandler.
Well he's been out shopping fared in the if he can understand it really -- you can clearly see I'm sure you'll find it a very helpful book as well.
Well on Friday president of.
