Another big government Republican files for ’08by Jason Pye
It’s official, Mike Huckabee is running, well he at least is taking the step of form an exploratory committee.
Here is what Erick over at Red State had to say about Huckabee:
You too can support a guy who has no problem raising taxes, hiking the minimum wage, spends his time doing rice commercials, called No Child Left Behind the greatest education reform in his lifetime, wants to ban trans fats, thinks the government needs to up the funding of Phys. Ed. classes, and has a host of other nanny-statist ideas.
This “favorite of conservatives,” as the Associated Press calls him, also rated
‘dead last’second to last among Republican governors in CATO’s 2006 rankings of the nation’s governors (and sixth from the bottom overall).
That’s right. Mike Huckabee is running. Welcome to the mediocrity Governor.
There were only two possible candidates from either major party that I could bring myself to vote for, one being Ron Paul (at this point I’m backing him)…the other is Mark Sanford from South Carolina, who is not running.
God help us.
