I saw your “reply” to my letter. Apparently I was not clear enough for you. Being a Southern gentleman, perhaps I was a little too polite. Let me try again.p>Quin, I have a really hard time understanding why you failed to contact our campaign press office if your intent was anything other than to mislead and misinform your audience about Mike Huckabee’s record as governor of Arkansas. Believe me, dozens, if not hundreds, of journalists do so on a daily basis. The lame excuse you cited really doesn’t pass the “sniff” test. br> . br> Regarding organizations like Club for Growth: They ignore the fact that Mike Huckabee was the first governor in Arkansas history to enact a broad-based tax cut. As governor, he led the fight to cut taxes almost 100 times, returning almost $400 million to the taxpayers. He doubled the standard deduction and the child care tax credit and eliminated the marriage penalty and the capital gains tax on the sale of a home. He reduced the capital gains tax for businesses and individuals. He indexed the income tax to protect people from paying higher taxes because of “bracket creep.” In fact, he left office this past January with a surplus of almost $1 billion, which he urged should go back to the taxpayers. If that’s not good conservative fiscal management, I don’t know what is. /p> p>Regarding the Dumond case: What happened was a terrible tragedy. But the fact of the matter is that your article was riddled with inaccuracies, allegations and half-truths which were thoroughly investigated and put to rest by the voters of Arkansas in the governor’s last election. br> — Chip Saltsman
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
