The Corner

Pro-Fred AND Anti-Huck

A quick note about my various Huckabee postings.  As many (most) readers know, I am supporting Fred Thompson in the Republican primary (and wrote an article explaining why in NRODT).  This is not the reason why I have been posting so much that is critical of Huckabee, however.  Rather, I find Huckabee’s record and various positions to be particularly problematic, far more so than any of the other candidates.  (Note I have not been posting items critical of the other candidates, even though I prefer Fred.)  In my view, Huckabee is a big government populist liberal, not a conservative.  In any event, I will do my best to remind Corner readers that I have cast my lot with one of the candidates, and that this may be reason to take some of what I post with an extra grain of salt.
