Glenn Beck has suggested that Mike Huckabee is the perfect progressive candidate for the Republican Party.   I think you’ll be a bit surprised at that claim if you follow the links.

  1. This governor granted more pardons than any governor of his state since 1967
  2. This governor struggled with a weight problem most of his life, and thinks first lady Michelle Obama is doing well to speak in favor of healthy eating and exercise and that he doesn’t have a problem with the Federal Healthy Kids initiative.
  3. This governor increased state funding to fight childhood obesity and created a new health care commission in the state.
  4. This governor signed and promoted a law that those who graduated from public schools, regardless of their immigration status, would be able to pay in‑state tuition.
  5. This governor raised taxes, and increased spending over 12% a year.

I could go on-and-on but I think you get the picture.  Beck has praised “the governor” linked above over and over again, but hypocrisy reigns in Glenn Beck’s deluded world.  If this is the best Glenn Beck has, Huckabee will be the perfect candidate for the party, better than Ronald Reagan, Chris Christie, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, or even Ronald Reagan, period.   Next up, Beck gets out the chalk board and shows that Huckabee is really Woodrow Wilson’s grandson, and that Huckabee’s first cousin is George Soros.

  1. Another home run David Shedlock!!!! Way to point out what hypocrites the conservative media really is. It’s not about the issues like they say it is. It’s about who they personally like or don’t like (for whatever reason) or who can do the most for them. I’m done with them all!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Or sometimes there is legitimate criticism. Beck is over the top, but I have problems with his support of federal involvement with school lunches, as well as, his support of Race to the Top as examples.

      No such thing as a perfect candidate.

      1. So which candidates are prepared to abolish the school lunch program? They get a feather in their caps. I bet it isn’t any of the top 5 contenders, though.

      3. I don’t know. Do schools have to take the money? What happens if they serve up what they jolly well please?

        I think I’ve made my position clear – defund the whole school lunch thing. I never expect that federal dollars will be doled out without strings attached – there is no free lunch!

  4. I’m not going to bother following the links… the problem David is that you find all of that in one man. You also don’t seem to understand the difference between a state exercising power it has from promoting the federal government from doing something that isn’t in the enumerated powers. By the way didn’t you just post on this topic today?

  5. I take Glenn Beck with a grain of salt…but Huckabee fans are like Ron Paul fans…can’t, at times, see the forest through the trees. Huckabee has jumped the shark on a number of issues recently. I supported Huckabee in the past but will likely never do so again.
