Huckabee: Diabetes Bigger Threat Than Terrorism

I'd venture and guess that it may be a greater threat than the global warming hoax, but a bigger threat than terrorism? Good grief.

Earth to Mike Huckabee, please come in.

He's sounding crazier than Ron Paul.
An advocate for better health since his diabetes diagnosis five years ago, Mike Huckabee warned Wednesday that the illness may pose a greater threat than terrorism to the United States.

Nearly 59 million Americans are at risk for type 2 diabetes. The former Arkansas governor said the epidemic would be “the lead story” across the country if tens of millions were in danger of terrorist attacks.

The greatest challenge to America may not be something from without, it may be something from within,” Huckabee said. “It’s our own unhealthy habits.”
Not to downplay the health risks posed by diabetes, but making such an absurd comparison should permanently disqualify the man for any discussion for higher office.
