Well, it continues. Drudge has a hot red link to a YouTube video in which Gov. Huckabee (a more rotund Gov. Huckabee) :Lost, of course, is any sense of context, any sense as to what was going on – paying for schools for instance. But none of that matters. For a certain segment of Republicans raising taxes for any reason is an act of heresy – just like talking about God is an act of heresy for certain Democrats. Here is a different perspective on Huckabee from Governing Magazine who named him on of the top public officials in 2005:
Huckabee, who has been testing the 2008 presidential waters, is a true exemplar of the concept of â€œcompassionate conservatism.â€ He has overseen breakthroughs in health coverage for children, education management and school finance. He also sponsored the largest tax cuts Arkansas has ever seen, as well as the stateâ€™s biggest road construction package. And the state this year racked up the largest budget surplus in its history.
