Last week, Mike Huckabee found himself behind enemy lines on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and stumbled into an ambush he should have seen coming.

Huffed Stephanopoulos, “It seems like Republican leaders have the hardest time in the world saying simply and clearly, ‘President Obama is a Christian and a citizen, get over it.'”
After dancing around the trap for a minute, Huckabee yielded to Stephanopoulos’s prodding and fell in.
“I just don’t think it’s completely necessary for us to delve into such extraneous matters,” sniffed Huckabee. “And for Republicans to even be bringing it up, I think it’s a waste of energy and time.”
