    "Sen. Thompson’s philosophy seems to be more ‘cut and run’ when it comes to these issues rather than stand and lead," Huckabee wrote, adding that he would support both of the constitutional amendments.

    Prior to his speech, Huckabee elaborated to local reporters on his comments on Thompson, arguing that the nation should have a defining line at the federal level on whether abortion and gay marriage is "right or wrong."

    "If you think something is wrong, is it more wrong in one state than another?" Huckabee said of Thompson’s federalist stance. "That’s the question. The question is not anything other than if you believe that it’s wrong, does it become more right in Mississippi than it does in Montana?"

    Freddy's response

    "Gov. Huckabee talks about this I suppose because it is the only conservative position he’s got," Thompson said. "People talk about a sanctuary cities — he apparently wanted a sanctuary state in Arkansas. He’s very weak on immigration policy. He was one of the highest taxing governors that we had in this country, rivaling Bill Clinton in terms of the CATO ratings. And getting a D when Clinton got a D and getting an F for part of his administration. So I can understand why he might want to talk solely about this issue."
