Huckabee Has Anti-War Protesters Arrested

tmpphpiup5c6.jpgAfter Huckabee blew the landing at his press conference, the Huckabus made its way over to his office nearby where a Ron Paul throng was shouting and a group of anti-war protesters had made their way into his office with signs saying "who would Jesus bomb?"

Eight members of Iowa Occupation Project and Voices for Creative Nonviolence wanted to know how Huckabee rationalized his Christian background with his support for the war in Iraq:

Eight members of the Iowa Occupation Project and Voices for Creative Nonviolence arrived at Huckabee’s Locust St. campaign office early Monday afternoon, waiting for the former Arkansas governor’s reply to a letter delivered two months ago that sought his pledge to completely withdraw from Iraq within 100 days of assuming office; halt all military actions against Iraq and Iran; fund the rebuilding of Iraq as well as health, education and infrastructure needs in the U.S.; and “…the highest quality health care, education and jobs training benefits for veterans of our country’s Armed Services.”

I guess Huckabee wasn’t much interested in giving an answer because he had them arrested.
