When I first learned about Mike Huckabee’s candidacy I ended up staying up until early in the morning reading almost all of his website.

But the more I follow his candidacy the more I like him as a person but the less I like him as a Presidential candidate.

Mike Huckabee advocates a national sales tax instead of an income tax which all economists agree would be regressive but in interviews he refuses to acknowledge that.

In tonight’s Republican debate Mike Huckabee said he thinks there might have been WMD’s in Iraq though no one else, including President George Bush himself, seems to believe this anymore.

It seems Mike Huckabee, though a man with good morals and a strong Evangelical faith that I can relate to, seems to be a man less interested in the facts and more in his own ideas.

At Debate on the Economy, Republicans Become Kindest of Candidates

With the fiercely contested Florida primary just days away, the Republican presidential candidates engaged in some decidedly gentle sparring.

On Iraq, Mr. Huckabee suggested that there might have been weapons of mass destruction there after all, even though they were never found.

“Now, everybody can look back and say, ‘Oh, well, we didn’t find the weapons,’ ” he said. “It doesn’t mean they weren’t there. Just because you didn’t find every Easter egg didn’t mean that it wasn’t planted.”

Reports by a team of American inspectors, the Iraq Survey Group, concluded that Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction and had not begun any large-scale program to produce such weapons by the time American troops invaded Iraq in 2003.
