Mike Huckabee’s solution to the nation’s economy troubles? Pray.

It’s a good thing it’s looking less and less likely that Mike Huckabee will get the Republican nomination because he keeps getting more and more delusional. Now he’s asking Jesus to stimulate the economy:

Mr. Huckabee has invoked Jesus’ name at many points in the primary season, but his extraordinary request marks the first time a presidential candidate has directly asked a deity to provide the nation with an economic stimulus package.

In a press conference in Mobile, Alabama today, Mr. Huckabee said that he had asked Jesus to stimulate the U.S. economy with “a fresh infusion of loaves and fishes.”

The former Arkansas governor was not specific about the exact dollar amount of the loaves and fishes that he had asked Jesus to inject into the U.S. economy, but advisors later said that it was somewhere in the ballpark of $70 billion.

Mr. Huckabee said that he had also asked Jesus to solve the nation’s mortgage crisis by “casting out the money lenders.”

Though I suppose if all he did was pray it would be at least somewhat better than what the current President has tried to do. The thing that cracks me up is that Huckabee gets all huffy anytime a reporter questions him on his religious beliefs claiming those are private matters that won’t affect his ability to be President. Then he goes and does something goofy like this which points all the attention on his religious beliefs.
