The man from Hope

Posted By on Sat, May 19, 2007 at 8:56 AM

Mike Huckabee insists he's a serious candidate -- the polls and money just don't show it yet. But he has a plan. It needs to rely on reporters like this one continuing to swallow his exaggerations on his tax-cutting record and other issues of substance. Ernie Dumas' summary of the Huckabee record is more accurate.

E.J. Dionne got the point, by the way. In the South Carolina debate, Huckabee defended tax increases he'd backed in Arkansas because they were needed for roads and schools. Several Republicans broke from orthodoxy, a good thing politically, the Post columnist notes.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
