Who said this? “Free trade has to be fair trade. We are losing jobs because of an unlevel, unfair trading arena that has to be fixed. Behind the statistics, there are real families, real lives, and real pain. I’m running for President because I don’t want people who have worked loyally for a company for 20 or 30 years to walk in one morning and be handed a pink slip and be told, ‘I’m sorry, but everything you spent your life working for is no longer here.'” Hillary? Edwards? No, Mike Huckabee. That’s how he got the endorsement of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM). So no need for GOP voters to wait for the Democrats to argue that globalization is bad and Republicans don’t care about the poor. Huckabee can do it. Perhaps he’ll be a thorn in the sides of rivals or perhaps he’ll wind up being a useful foil. Romney, McCain or Rudy should be able to explain at the debate next week why protectionism is bad, globalization is good for American workers, and raising taxes(even in a “poor state”) isn’t a good idea. Maybe Huck could be the domestic Ron Paul for one of the frontrunners.
