    An important message could be that he is or isn't running.


    Huckabee is the exact definition of a big government liberal.

    That is true, He could be announcing he is NOT running. He is making lots of money on FOX. But I doubt that I would alert his Tritter followers, unless he was running.

    Huckabee Launches History Cartoons That 'Celebrate Religion' For Kids (VIDEO)

    Were you absent the day your history teacher informed the class that the Reagan Revolution was powered by a divine intervention from God? Did you fall asleep during the lesson on black, unemployed people who, at one time, completely lacked ethics? Don't worry -- Mike Huckabee has made a tool to school your entire family on these subjects.

    The former Arkansas governor announced Thursday that he's launched a company called Learn Our History, with the objective of making history lessons for students entertaining through the use of animated videos, according to PR Newswire.

    "America's youth aren't excited about our past because they're being taught history in a way that minimizes what has made America a beacon of hope around the world for over 200 years. Instead, history lessons today often focus on America's faults," said Governor Huckabee."
    The objective is to combat what Huckabee and co-founder Brad Saft see as the mundane, inaccurate and biased way in which history is taught, according to the website.

    As a way to instill American pride in students, a video "Origins of World War II" that's previewed on the site includes dialogue and narration such as:

    "Show those Germans and Japanese the power of America."
    "You can see that every American pulled together to win this war. Even the gals were in on it. You go, girl."
    Learn Our History also includes a video with religious undertones about the Reagan Revolution:

    "God had a plan for America...If we ever forget we're one nation under God, we'll be one nation gone under."
    The company's website says the history videos celebrate religion, but not any specific denomination, however.

    "At Learn Our History we recognize and celebrate faith, religion and the role of God in America's founding and making our country the greatest place on Earth. Our videos are non-denominational in nature and can be enjoyed by families with diverse religious beliefs."
    The Reagan video also describes the past economic downturn, illustrated by a black man wielding a knife as one of the people out of a job "whose morals are just gone."

    Yep. If it's Huck vs the O, I'll vote for 'none of the above'.

    He has a fighting chance of winning the nomination.
