Fiscal Conservatives Launch Huckabee Offensive
With a creepy telltale heart thumping in the background, then-Governor (and then-fattie) Mike Huckabee is seen in this commercial telling the Arkansas legislature what sort of tax increases he would accept to get the state out of a budget crisis. The right-wing anti-tax group Club for Growth would like you to be really scared that this might mean the Huck would work with Democratic leaders on taxes to help get the national government out of debt or something. Wait, what? It's a bad thing to cooperate with the other party if it's in the best long-term interests of the country? Oh, right, I forgot this was primary season and that the winner will be the person least like to cooperate with anyone on the other side of the aisle. Sorry! Carry on with your attack ads Club for Growth.
