Who is Mike Huckabee?

The Wall Street Journal's Opinion section just released this piece on Huckabe:

There are quite a few quotes from various people that will be difficult to brush aside. For example:


Betsy Hagan, Arkansas director of the conservative Eagle Forum and a key backer of his early runs for office, was once "his No. 1 fan." She was bitterly disappointed with his record. "He was pro-life and pro-gun, but otherwise a liberal," she says. "Just like Bill Clinton he will charm you, but don't be surprised if he takes a completely different turn in office."

Phyllis Schlafly, president of the national Eagle Forum, is even more blunt. "He destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles," she says. "Yet some of the same evangelicals who sold us on George W. Bush as a 'compassionate conservative' are now trying to sell us on Mike Huckabee."

Thank you for all the information on your blog. I have been doing an internet search for Ron Paul & homeschooling on Google and found your blog. I support Ron Paul and I would like to link to a couple of your posts and also your blog, if that is all right?
