Mike Huckabee Wants Us Feared, Not Liked
On Fox News’s Red Eye, possible Republican presidential candidate, former Arkansas Governor, and current media star Mike Huckabee doesn’t like that polls show we’re much more liked around the world now that Obama is president. Being liked, he believes, results from an apologetic foreign policy.
Huckabee made it abundantly clear he couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thought: “I’d rather us be feared than liked,” he told Gutfeld, adding that “I don’t want everybody to love us and like us if they’re still going to pick on us and kick sand in our eyes.” The fear versus love dichotomy, of course, is an allusion of The Prince, though he later articulated support for some sort of brinkmanship: “I’d much rather them be so afraid that the U.S., with its power, would ever use it, that we never have to use it.”
