'Like Being in a DMV Line': Huckabee Says 2nd Debate Was a Waste of Time
Mike Huckabee sounded off "The O'Reilly Factor" on his extreme frustration with the way the second Republican presidential debate played out.
Only Scott Walker spoke for less time than Huckabee, who talked for a total of nine minutes in three hours.
"There were times I wasn't sure if I was at the CNN debate or if I was standing in line at the DMV. I've been stuck in L.A. traffic and wasted less time than standing on that stage last night for three hours, getting three questions. Three questions. It was very frustrating," said Huckabee.
Huckabee said that in order to get some air time, he had to interrupt twice to even be able to give his opinion. He said he realized early on that unless he was willing to "trash" his fellow Republicans, he wasn't going to get more speaking time.
Huckabee said he wanted expand on his policy proposal following a mention of Social Security, but no significant time was devoted to the important issue.
"There's so many things that we needed to talk about. Instead it was, 'Donald Trump said something bad about you, would you like to respond?' We're bigger than that," said the former Arkansas governor.
