Why can't Huckabee interpret the Bible as well as Thompson can?

John Bentley reports (via Glenn Reynolds):
Mixing theology and social issues on the campaign trail is rare for Fred Thompson, but he discussed it today answering a question from a member of the audience.

A woman asked him if he would “as a Christian, as a conservative” continue President Bush’s programs to combat global AIDS.

“Christ didn’t tell us to go to the government and pass a bill to get some of these social problems dealt with. He told us to do it,” Thompson said.

“The government has its role, but we need to keep firmly in mind the role of the government, and the role of us as individuals and as Christians on the other.”
Huckabee, on the other hand, is a classic prooftexter, trying to fit the foot to the shoe.
