Hillbilly White Trash has a post (complete with video) up about him too. That post links to this Arkansas Journal post. The biggest problem I can find is this:
May 5, 2003-Governor Mike Huckabee addressed the Arkansas General Assembly, pleading with them to pass a tax, any tax. He ticked off a list of various taxes that he would find acceptable, a tax on tobacco, a surcharge on the income tax, a sales tax... "I will very happily sign that," he proclaimed.
While it is true that we will never get the "perfect candidate", I am having serious reservations about Huckabee. One of the biggest reasons the Republicans lost in '06 was a result of them spending money like Democrats. And raising taxes is not going to get you very far with me.
I will continue to research Huckabee, and let you know what I find.
