Mike Huckabee Promotes Petition, Transfers Visitors to His PAC Site

Fox News host and former Republican Presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, has been urging viewers to “go to balancecutsave.com” in order to sign a petition. The petition, obviously, is intended to tell Congress to balance the budget and cut spending. However, what Huckabee didn’t mention is that he is actually sending his viewers to HuckPAC.com, the web site for his political action committee (PAC), which finances Republican candidates. It also, apparently, employs his daughter.

HUCKABEE: I believe that members of Congress ought to be reminded that they work for us. We don’t work for them. Rather than continue to spend money that they don’t have and push deficits through the sky, and make it tough for families to get jobs and pay their bills, they need to balance the budget, cut their spending, and save American families from the disaster of debt and deficits. Now, I’m collecting electronic signatures to deliver a message to Congress, and I want you to be a part of what I hope’s going to be 100,000 people signing our balance, cut, and save petition. You can go to balancecutsave.com — that’s balancecutsave.com. Lend your name and your voice along with mine to remind Congress who they work for.

So, any Fox News supporters out there able to tell us what PACs CNN and msnbc have promoted on the air? I’d venture a guess that you wouldn’t be able to name one. Can you also explain how this is “fair and balanced?”

Mike Huckabee Needs a Bush History Lesson

Gretchen Carlson, host of Fox & Friends, asked Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) about some remarks made by Vice President Biden about the economy. Huckabee wasted no time in making the false claim that George W. Bush did not play the blame game about what he inherited from Bill Clinton.

HUCKABEE: There’s one thing though that Biden and President Obama have got to get under control. And that is quit blaming George Bush. George Bush inherited an economy when he became president back in 2001 that was already beginning to show real signs of the stress from the breaking of the technology bubble. George Bush didn’t go out whining and complaining every day, he stood up like the president of the United States and he worked on trying to get it fixed.

Of course, Bush did place plenty of blame on Clinton:

“When I took office, our economy was beginning a recession.” — Bush, 8/7/02

“The president inherited a Clinton recession and turned it into the early stages of Bush prosperity.” — Secretary of Commerce Don Evans, 9/2/04

“In terms of the economy, look, I inherited a recession, I am ending on a recession.” — Bush, 1/12/09

Mike Huckabee Disagrees With Supreme Court Nomination, Gets Name Wrong

Not surprisingly, Fox News is trying to pick apart Barack Obama’s nomination of Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court. Also, not surprisingly, Fox News commentator, Mike Huckabee, follows suit and expresses his disagreement with the choice and, in doing so, incorrectly calls her by the wrong name.

The appointment of Maria Sotomayor for the Supreme Court is the clearest indication yet that President Obama’s campaign promises to be a centrist and think in a bipartisan way were mere rhetoric.

If you’re going to dislike someone, you might have more credibility if you’re able to get their name right.
