Huckabee v. Armey

Posted By on Wed, Apr 15, 2009 at 1:30 PM

Mike Huckabee and Dick Armey, through his special interest FreedomWorks, have both been encouraging the teabagger anti-tax protests today -- (it's a Chick-fil-a kind of day). But that doesn't mean Huckabee has forgiven Armey for dissing him during the presidential campaign.

"As for Armey," Huckabee writes when I ask him to weigh in, "he and about 75% of the so-called 'conservatives' owe me a big apology. They misrepresented my record, took my statements totally out of context, and accused me of economic liberalism, which is utter nonsense.  My campaign upset their orderly apple cart, because it really was run by grass-roots conservatives and small business owners and not those who as it turned out were wholly owned subsidiaries of recklessly run corporations and lobbyists.”

Huckabee says Armey and his cohorts "never listened to what I was saying, but just spoke out to protect their pals who were funding their faces—there’s a word for people who get to paid to show love, but polite people don’t use it openly.  I’ve found it amazing to watch the huffy puffy types who skinned me alive during the campaign jump out and support TARP, and then change their tune when Obama and the Dems proposed stimulus. Let the record note, that I opposed TARP---I called it the Congressional Relief Action Program from the beginning.  I could say more, but have to go catch a plane!"
