(CNN) Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is a longtime critic of the Affordable Care Act. At the Republican party’s annual winter meeting today this is what he said about the law’s birth control coverage:

“If the democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it.”

This comes as Republicans are working to win over women voters ahead of the midterm elections.

    How to pinpoint a republican in a crowd. Look for the guy with the foot in his mouth!

    Huckabee is one of those old guard republicans. Not a conservative, just a republican. As long as the republican party keeps putting mor-ons like this one out in front as their spokesman they will continue to loose party members.

    I think the true conservatives have gone to the Tea Party (like me) or the libertarians which are a little hands off for me but are closer to me than republicans.

    There isn’t a warm bucket of spit’s difference between republicans and demochimps.
