Huckabee said he would put his own Christian twist on a "God speech."
BLUFFTON, South Carolina (CNN) – Speech? What speech?
Mike Huckabee said Friday he did not watch the speech on faith given by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, but offered lukewarm praise for what he had heard about Romney's comments.
The former Arkansas governor said from what he had heard, Romney "seemed to have done an excellent job."
But the Baptist minister argued that he has been confronted with questions about his faith more than Romney has, and that he would make a "God speech" too if given the airtime.
"I get all of the God questions at the debates, so you know when people say, 'Oh, he had to make a speech,' I'm thinking, 'Hey you know what? If you'll give me national television time, I'll make you a God speech, and I'll tell you what I'll do, I'll throw in an offering and an altar call to throw in with it.'"
Huckabee was speaking with reporters after attending a fundraiser here.
