Huckabee ‘Libido’ Comment Offends

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Thursday blasted the Democratic Party for providing women with free birth control "because they cannot control their libido." His argument was that Democrats send a mixed message in accusing the GOP of a "war on women," saying it is their party that isn't standing up for women and that the birth control provision in ObamaCare isn't aimed at protecting women. His statement quickly attracted controversy and provided fodder for Democrats, who accused the GOP politician of making crass comments/Cameron Joseph, The Hill. More here.
