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 Hucabee is a true GOP Politician. He doesn’t know any better.

  3. Unfortunately I just saw Huckabee’s “sign petition to repeal Obama care” advertisement on MSNBC. He said the “only need 4 more senators” to repeal it. And that is how I ended up here…on a search for what is going on with the health care repeal advertisements.

    But he started this in 2008! Read here: http://whitehouse2012.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/huckabee-to-lead-health-care-repeal-petition-drive/

    So he has been working on the repeal for 3 years!

    I am convinced that there is more to collecting these signatures than trying to repeal health care reform. I know on some petitions I have seen there has been a disclosure saying that the names will be used for advertising, (phone calls, emails, etc or just emails if that is all the information you give).

    Or maybe he is just trying to keep his face on different news sources so people will watch his TV show. Either way I think there is something unscrupulous about this man and I don’t have one ounce of trust in him.
