RE: Huckabee

Phil will probably get into this in his post about policy, but at today’s breakfast Huckabee presented himself as a fiscal conservative. He didn’t mention Arkansas’ tax increases during his administration but emphasized his record of broad-based tax cuts. He said he has always supported the Bush tax cuts, a subtle dig at John McCain and (to a lesser extent) Mitt Romney, and wants to make them permanent. And he advocated a tax code that is “fair, flatter, finite, and family-friendly.”

The details of these proposals and Huckabee’s past record notwithstanding, there was very little in his remarks this morning that reflected the big government conservatism I wrote about earlier this year.
