What Ivy said about Huckabee's "point" was exactly right. I'll only add that Huckabee said what he did because he is fed up with liberals accusing (falsely and cynically in his mind) white male Republican politicians like himself on waging a "war on women." He thinks that "hey, I'm a loving Christian father and husband, I don't openly discriminate against women, I love women, and it is bullshit that the liberals insult women by saying they only thing important to them is access to birth control and abortion." That is the most charitable reading of his remarks, and even that reading still reveals the tremendous horseshit at the core of what he's saying.
Women vote more for Democrats than they do Republicans not just because a bunch of white male Republican politicians can't help themselves from talking (usually stupidly) about contraception and abortion. They vote that way because Republican politicians have spent generations ignoring their economic concerns and fears. They think the pay gap is a myth, or the consequence of a rational market function that the government shouldn't be concerned about. They are opposed the the expansion of pre-K education funding, daycare funding, etc. All of the manifold economic anxieties that have crippled the working class since the 1970s have impacted women far more than men, because they earn less than men, because they are often left with childrearing responsibilities by men, because their health care costs more, and because they carry a higher student loan burden. And the Republican response to all of those anxieties is essentially . . . to offer more tax credits (but only if some other component of federal spending gets cut to offset it, even as deficits are plummeting). So with all that going on, yeah, it certainly doesn't help women voters -- 99% of whom use birth control at some point in their lives -- to hear a bunch of windbags who don't even understand how birth control works rail on and on about insurance companies being forced by "Uncle Sugar" to pay for it. Or to hear them whine about how unfair it is when they get called bigots for doing so.
The Huckabees of the world will never understand that it takes more to be pro-women than simply knowing and loving a few particular women, and going to church with them.
