Huckabee On Meet The Press

Huckabee just said:

"But remember that your most single -- critical job is that of preserving and protecting the American people."

He's referencing the Presidential Oath of Office here. But the oath is about "preserving and protecting" the Constitution -- not the people.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

I don't see anything in there about dismantling our civil liberties in order to protect us from the evildoers.
