    Uhhh...

    I think there's a bit of a difference between saying "57" when you meant "47" and spending an entire interview discussing how Obama's childhood in Kenya influenced his worldview.

    "..But then if you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Indonesia with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather."

    yep, huckabee mispoke. it makes sense. he was actually talking about indonesia.

    where obama grew up with his kenyan relatives, and they were talking about the mau mau revolution in kenya, while lounging it up in indonesia.
