Love him or hate him, and I really do not love him, one thing we should all be able to agree on is Mike Huckabee is not a conservative. Just do not tell that to Pat Regnier, Money Magazine editor at large. Who in an article on CNN, says this:
With Mike Huckabee's big win in the Iowa Republican caucus Thursday, more people are asking, "So what's this guy actually stand for?"
Answer: For the most part, he's a pretty conventional conservative Republican.
About the only thing that ties Gov. Huckabee to conservatives is the fact that almost all of his supporters go to church. That is it because few if any of his positions can be described as conservative.
When one of your top strategists says this:
His aides are wary of New Hampshire. "It's all no tax, no government there," said Bob Wickers, a top strategist. "It's not ideal."I think it is safe to say you may not actually be a "conventional conservative".
About the only thing I do agree with the Governor on is the "fair tax", what is really nothing more than a national sales tax. The CNN article labels the idea as "radical" and regressive while glossing over the massive benefits. Remember, "THIS IS CNN". The last thing they would advocate is for an idea that would reduce the size of government and help reward productivity.
