Huck: Fire-tested

Posted By on Sun, Jul 6, 2008 at 7:48 AM

Brummett chats with Mike Huckabee about how full-contact Arkansas politics prepared him for national campaigning. And what would a Huckabee interview be without a little rhetorical excess?

He and I talked a little about that [national opposition from some business conservatives], too, long enough for Huckabee to say that outfits like the Club for Growth don't understand that you can't always cut taxes at the state level and meet basic needs. Such people would "let an 8-year-old child choke to death on the steps of the Children's Hospital" for lack of Medicaid.

I chastised him for his famous and all-too-typical hyperbole. These guys wouldn't really let a child choke. Would they? He said maybe, and maybe not.
