Description

The New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller from a presidential candidate for the 2016 election!

In God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, Mike Huckabee asks, "Have I been taken to a different planet than the one on which I grew up?" The New York Times bestselling author explores today's fractious American culture, where divisions of class, race, politics, religion, gender, age, and other fault lines make polite conversation dicey, if not downright dangerous. As Huckabee notes, the differences of opinion between the "Bubble-villes" of the big power centers and the "Bubba-villes" where most people live are profound, provocative, and sometimes pretty funny. Where else but in Washington, D.C. could two presidential golf outings cost the American taxpayers $2.9 million in travel expenses? Government bailouts, politician pig-outs, and popular culture provocations from Jay-Z and Beyoncé to Honey Boo-Boo to the Duck Dynasty's Robertson family. Gun rights, gay marriage, the decline of patriotism, and the mainstream media's contempt for those who cherish a faith-based life. The trouble with Democrats, the even bigger trouble with Republicans, our national security complex, and how our Constitution is eroding under our noses. Reflections on our way of life as it once was, as it is, and as it might become...these subjects and many more are covered with Mike Huckabee's signature wit, insight, and honesty.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 22, 2014 – Anyone who has enjoyed any of the previous books by Huckabee former governor, one-time presidential candidate, and Fox News host will be more than satisfied with this examination of the differences between "Bubbleville" (New York, L.A., and D.C.) and "Bubbaville" (the rest of America). In clich d prose, he describes New York as "not completely Sodom and Gomorrah" and himself as "a catfish and corn bread kind of guy, not a caviar and crab salad connoisseur." Huckabee offers a laundry list of grievances and discusses his stances on guns, religion, gay marriage, Obama, and Hollywood: he believes that American Christians are "cultural lepers," marriage "is not merely a secular institution," the IRS "is a criminal enterprise," reality TV's Duck Dynasty and Jim Bob Duggar "reflect all that is good and decent about family," and poverty relief is "about perpetuating government programs." Huckabee's leavens his musings on the state of the union with a sense of humor ("I prefer boots over Birkenstocks. Does that make me weird?") that makes him enjoyable to read.

Customer Reviews

Self-indulgent Garbage

Poorly written and argued, this book is a showcase of more awful ideas from a person who only can treat people well who are just like him. What he tries to play off as a well-intentioned memoir, is actually a grab for money for his 2016 run. Pass this read over and grab something that isn't just a meandering account of hate and contempt.

Great Book - Perspective Is Right On

For the "Bubble-Ville" readers this book won't hit home. As a "Bubba-Ville" reader you have the perspective of the book in first person and it is so relative. His argument from chapter to chapter is solid and the points he makes are valid. If you go into the book pre-contempt then you will never enjoy it and it will further your contempt position to his political basis.

Rubbish

If you want to know about right wing nuts then but this book. Really garbage
