MSNBC: HUCK, THE CONSTITUTION AND 'GOD'S STANDARDS'

From NBC/NJ's Adam Aigner-Treworgy

WARREN, Mich. -- Huckabee's closing argument to voters here this evening featured a few new stories and two prolonged sections on illegal immigration and Christian values.
These two topics usually feature prominently in Huckabee's stump speech, but last night he got specific, promising to build a border fence within 18 months if elected and elaborating on his belief that the constitution needs to be amended.

"[Some of my opponents] do not want to change the Constitution, but I believe it's a lot easier to change the constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God, and that's what we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards," Huckabee said, referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Huckabee often refers to the need to amend the constitution on these grounds, but he has never so specifically called for the Constitution to be brought within "God's standards," which are themselves debated amongst religious scholars. As a closing statement he asked the room of nearly 500 supporters to "pray and then work hard, and in that order," to help him secure a victory in Tuesday's GOP primary.

Tomorrow Huckabee will visit two polling places in the morning before taking off for South Carolina where he will watch Michigan's returns come in.

my Mother keeps getting calls from you to donate money to get Congress to appeal or deny the changes to rules for senior citizens. Do you need the money to pay them off??? Most senior citizens have limited money now especially. You should not continually call them!!! Most would send money because they would feel obligated to do so. Leave them alone!

Do you need money to pay off the votes you need to protect senior citizens? My Mom gets calls from you daily asking for money. I control what she donates to. Many senior citizens do not have that option. Most seniors would donate because they feel obligated to pay to protect their money from being taken away from them!!!!
