Huckabee shoots himself in the foot with Obama joke

Huckabee - shot himself in the foot?Could this off the cuff joke at the National Rifle Association be the end of any ambitions Hukabee had for the Vice Presidency?

See for yourself.

That was Barack Obama he just tripped off a chair, he’s getting ready to speak. Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.

I know a few American friends have feared that, race being the issue that it is in American politics, there could be an assassination attempt. What works for your current audience may not do you well in the broader court of public opinion.

So could this be a bitter pill for this sweetie? A flippant remark can be deadly to a political career (and Obama’s two not close to this one).
