I Feel So Much Safe Now

"Mike Huckabee has been widely criticized for his overt religious appeals to win votes. One of the most criticized aspects of his campaign was a television ad he ran in Iowa and South Carolina pointedly describing himself as a 'Christian leader':

"Today, Greg Sargent posted a brochure which the Obama campaign is distributing in South Carolina which seem to include religious appeals at least as overt and explicit as anything Huckabee has done. The center page of the brochure proclaims - in the largest letters on the page - that Obama is a 'COMMITTED CHRISTIAN,' and includes three pictures of Obama, all of which show him praying or preaching in a Church, and also includes a fourth picture: of the interior of a Church with a large cross lurking in the background. The page also says that Obama is 'guided by his Christian faith' and quotes Obama saying: 'We do what we do because God is with us.'
