huckabee-150.jpgPotential GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee sided with First Lady Michelle Obama in the Sarah Palin-Michelle Obama "Food Fight." Huckabee, who lost more than 100 pounds after a 2003 health scare, said on the Curtis Sliwa Show, "With all due respect to my colleague and friend Sarah Palin, I think she's misunderstood what Michelle Obama is trying to do... Michelle Obama's not trying to tell people what to eat or not trying to force the government's desires on people... She’s stating the obvious, that we do have an obesity problem in this country."
