Iowa Republicans are driving me insane. Or perhaps I should say, the people from Iowa who are answering Pollsters and SAYING they are Republicans are driving me insane.
It is time for you all to wake up and smell the coffee. There is only ONE conservative REPUBLICAN running for the nomination of the the GOP for President. That ONE conservative is Senator Fred Dalton Thompson.
The biggest issue that I have is with this Huckabee thing that the press seems to be all excited about. Are the Republicans in Iowa, and New Hampshire and Florida asleep?
Huckabee is soft on crime. Huckabee has pardoned or paroled more felons than all three of his predecessors combined.
Huckabee has LIED about having a theology degree. In the CNN-YouTube debate he stated "The only person here with a theology degree, there are parts of it I don't fully understand, but I am not supposed to, because the bible is the revelation of an infinite god.." BUT in a letter to the National Review, Joe Carter, director of research for Huckabee says "Governor Huckabee doesn’t have a theology degree. He only spent a year in seminary."
Huckabee is soft on illegal immigration. According to FactCheck.org: the bill Huckabee pushed for in his 2005 State of the State address did not apply only to "those children who had been in our schools their entire school life." It required only three years in an Arkansas high school to be eligible. And students did not have to be "applying for citizenship," but rather they had to sign an affidavit stating their intent to do so in the future..
Huckabee is a TAX RAISER. He keeps saying, "I lowered taxes," yet the truth of the matter is that he presided over 21 Tax increases in Arkansas and presided over a NET TAX INCREASE.
This should be MORE THAN ENOUGH for the PARTY OF RONALD REAGAN to send Mike Huckabee packing back to Arkansas.
