Huckabee Tells RNC to Stop RINOing Each Other
WASHINGTON – Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee urged Republicans to stop attacking each other and instead focus on defeating the Democrats in the upcoming elections.

In a luncheon speech Thursday at the Republican National Committee winter meeting in Washington, Huckabee criticized Democrats for portraying women as “helpless” individuals whose only goal in life is for the government to provide for them birth control.

“If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it,” he said. “Let us take that discussion all across America because women are far more than the Democrats have played them to be.”

White House press secretary Jay Carney was asked about Huckabee’s comments and whether that indeed is the president’s message. “I haven’t seen that report, but whoever said it, sounds offensive to me and to women,” Carney said....

He said the GOP is poised to increase its numbers in the House and the Senate, but only if Republicans can stop attacking each other.

“The only thing that would keep us from seeing that happening is if we’d decide that we’d rather fight each other than to fight for the people of this country that deserve a different and better kind of government than what Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi have given them,” Huckabee said.

He also dismissed the term “RINO,” which stands for “Republican In Name Only.”

“Let’s stop calling each other somehow less Republican than someone else,” he said....

Huckabee, the runner-up in the 2008 GOP presidential primary, said he has received more calls to run in 2016 than he received in 2012 when he decided not to run because of personal reasons.

“The encouragement has been much stronger than I would have anticipated,” he said.
