    Not Everyone Loves Huckabee

    By Donald Lambro

    Monday, December 3, 2007

    WASHINGTON -- It is very rare, if not unheard of, to catch a presidential candidate, especially a Republican, in the act of saying he or she would be willing to sign any tax increase that lawmakers wished for.

    But that's what happened to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who has rocketed to a statistical tie in Iowa with Mitt Romney, largely as a result of the former Baptist minister's support from evangelical voters in the nation's first caucus state.

    The Club for Growth, an effective tax-cut advocacy group, has been on Huckabee's back almost from the beginning of his candidacy, sending out e-mail blasts to party conservatives that paint an abominable picture of his record on taxes.

    Huckabee has been campaigning as a tax cutter, and indeed he did slash some state taxes during his two terms as governor, but he raised far more than he cut. The Cato Institute, which monitors the fiscal records of the nation's governors, gave him a poor-to-failing grade on spending and taxes.

    The Club for Growth has also examined his tax and spend record and found it wanting. Its verdict: Huckabee could not be trusted to hold the line on taxes, let alone push it back.

    Huckabee's Son Arrested on Weapons Charge at Airport

    Little Rock (AP) - Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee's son, David, has been given one year’s probation after being arrested for having a gun in a prohibited area Thursday morning.

    Twenty-six-year-old David Huckabee was taken into custody at Little Rock National Airport at about 6:00 a.m. A 40-caliber handgun was found in Huckabee's carry-on luggage as he was getting ready to board a plane.

    It looks like the picture his supporters have been trying to paint isn't quite accurate.... Family values candidate? Tax cut candidate? Hardly. This man has gained a lot of ground lately, but can he stand the light of truth?

    What does that have to do with Huckabee's politics?
