Huckabee Targets Obama at Republican Statesman’s Dinner

Republican unity was the theme at the Tennessee GOP’s Statesman’s Dinner fundraiser Saturday and keynote speaker Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and current Fox News talk show host, focused on one thing the party faithful agree upon — Barack Obama.

From the Tennessean report
:
Huckabee’s speech at the state GOP’s biggest fundraiser of the year was almost entirely centered on the November general election. The speech, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, also included sharp rebukes of President Barack Obama and his policies.
Specifically, Huckabee questioned the Obama administration’s attitude toward the country’s industry.
When talking to the media before he spoke to Republican supporters, the 2008 presidential hopeful said that Obama is hostile toward American businessmen.
“I don’t understand why, other than he’s never experienced putting everything he has on the line and nursing a business to health,” he said.
He also criticized the administration’s calls for presumptive candidate Mitt Romney to release additional tax returns publicly.
“I’m not so much concerned about what Mitt Romney makes,” he said during his speech, instead saying he was more concerned about the federal government’s financial state than anything else
