A Citizen's View from Main Street

Huck Going To Sarah’s Turf



So that’s a “no” to civility? Coming from a religious zealot, I am not surprised. People fighting for their own religious rights are the enemy? American citizens standing up for democracy and the Constituti­on in the face of theocracy are the enemy? I don’t think so!

Huckabee is the type of republican who will never accept the Constituti­on of the United States as the highest law of the land. He has no business being in politics.

Then they managed to convince a lot of people that the debt was more important than the recession, and that we should somehow balance the budget in the middle of a recession.
The real “genius” is where they remove all their big-ticket ideology from the budget conversati­on so that when they wind up doubling the deficit instead of reducing it, they can blame the Democrats for not cutting enough.

The Tea Party will not be amused. Or the liberals, progressiv­es, moderates, …
