Mike Huckabee is turning into a regular on the flip flop train

Republican Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee is making a trend of flip flopping and contradicting himself. Now Huckabee is saying, contrary to his official position on his website,that the US Constitution is a "living" and "breathing document". This is a point of view of many liberals and those who do not want to hold onto the reality that our founding fathers made the Constitution to be flexible to the will of the people, not changable for the sake to playcate to ideology. Here is Mike Huckabee in his own words; his explanation positions about the Constitution is inbetween 2 and 4 minutes of the clip below:

Side thought: When the interview ends, CNN's John Roberts has this look on his face which is almost screaming "I am glad this interview is over. He doesn't sound like a Republican to me".

As someone who has more than a passing interest and knowledge base about History and Constitutional law, when Huckabee makes statements such as "the Constitution was intended to be amended" and that we need to amend the Constitution to "preserve the sanctity of human life" at conception. What Governor Huckabee does not understand is that the US Constitution is a document that describes and outlines the underpinnings of our Federal Government. The Amendments are there to change or add elements to our Federal Law and preserve and uphold the rights of US citizens. And if laws were applied properly and case precident was followed more explicitly, there could be no Constitutional challenges to the viable life of an unborn baby. The authors of Roe v. Wade left the door open for states to regulate abortion. Huckabee's lack of depth of understanding concerning Constitutional Law and history should concern people because he sounds confussed and like someone who changes positions like a chameleon trying to gain votes.
