Re: Huck and Chuck

by Jonathan H. Adler

Rich — It’s interesting that Huckabee is now stressing a limited government message, as it has not been a significant part of his platform up until now.  Rather this is a guy who celebrates farm subsidies, disavows free trade, and likes the idea of a national smoking ban, and his campaign manager has disparaged the limited government ideology that motivates many Republicans in New Hampshire and elsewhere.  That he can deliver such a message effectively is no surprise — he’s a very smooth talker.  The question is whether his newfound embrace of limited government ideals is sincere.  I have my doubts.
