Astroturfing Republican of the Day Awardby Stephen Gordon
Pls support HPAC today, my 3 reasons for $3: rising taxes, deficits, massive exp. of govt http://tinyurl.com/cwpy6t Plse RT #tcot
Let’s see if I understand this correctly: Tax Hike Mike wants us to give money to the Huck PAC because of taxes, deficits and expansion of government?
I seem to recall the Club for Growth setting the record straight on just how big Tax Hike Mike would really like the government to be. Huckabee’s response was to call the organization the Club for Greed.
I also recall Huckabee lambasting libertarians. There’s this sentence from his book.
The real threat to the Republican Party is something we saw a lot of this past election cycle: libertarianism masked as conservatism.
There is also this quote from a HuffPo interview:
The greatest threat to classic Republicanism is not liberalism; it’s this new brand of libertarianism, which is social liberalism and economic conservatism, but it’s a heartless, callous, soulless type of economic conservatism because it says “look, we want to cut taxes and eliminate government. If it means that elderly people don’t get their Medicare drugs, so be it. If it means little kids go without education and healthcare, so be it.”
Huck PAC will be going without my $3, as I certainly don’t want it to be used to expand the size, scope and expense of government.
Here’s the response back to Huckabee from my Twitter account:
