In the opening monologue of his show “Huckabee” Saturday night, Mike Huckabee began to backpedal on his support for the Common Core curriculum, saying that he doesn’t support “what Common Core has become in many states or school districts.” He also encouraged the retirement of the “toxic” term Common Core, which he says has been hijacked.

So, has Huckabee truly done a 180 degree turn on his support for Common Core, or has he just begun to backpedal with an eye on 2016?

Only one thing is certain.
