Huckabee, O’Malley …Done.
So….Poor people need to be treated like dogs…
Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee argued on Thursday that the “common sense” way to improve the economy was to treat taxpayers with the same techniques used to “train dogs.”
Speaking at the Republican presidential debate on the Fox Business channel, Huckabee argued that Americans were having trouble getting ahead because “the tax system punishes them.”
“If you work really hard and you start moving up the economic ladder, you get bumped into a different tax bracket so the government thinks it deserves more of your hard work than you do,” he explained. “It’s time for something big.”
According to the former Arkansas governor, Americans would be better off with a national flat sales tax of 10 percent, which he refers to as the “Fair Tax” plan.
“It’s built on the common sense with which we raised our kids and train dogs,” he declared. “You reward behavior you want more of. And you punish behavior you want less of.”
“That’s how I raise kids, it’s how I trained our dogs. And folks, it’s not that difficult.”
However, the Tax Policy Center determined last year that Huckabee’s plan would actually punish the poorest Americans.
“The problem is that very high-income households spend only a fraction of their income, while low- and middle-income people spend all or most of what they make,” the Tax Policy Center observed. “A sales tax, by design, exempts a large share of income at the top. If it includes a prebate to protect people at the bottom and doesn’t add to the deficit, then it must raise taxes on people in the middle.”
To hear conservatives tell it, President Obama’s poll numbers are dropping faster than some of our more published black conservatives to their knees…
When confronted with a white conservative with his pants unzipped.
Unfortunately for conservatives and Republicans, between the self inflicted political suicide by bimbos (conservative toast), and the general lackluster talent available in the conservative sphere…
That still doesn’t mean a Republican can win an election.
According to the latest Poll of potential candidates for the 2012 Presidential race – Obama led:
Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, by nine points: 47 percent to 38 percent, with 15 percent undecided
Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, by 10 points: 48 percent to 38 percent, with 15 percent undecided.
Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the House, by 18 points: 52 percent to 34 percent, with 15 percent undecided.
Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, by 19 points: 53 percent to 34 percent, with 13 percent undecided
Meaning the Neutered One, and the Sno’ Ho’ don’t stand a Sno’ Ho’s chance in Hell .
As for Romney, non conservatives like him more than conservatives – who won’t vote for him because he’s a Mormon. Which in their view is “non-christian” and “Satan’s religion”.
Huckabee, at this point has to be the odd’s on favorite to be the Republican candidate sans another “Bimbo eruption” so seemingly common to the sanctimonious. This anti-conservative actually likes Huckabee (not enough to vote for him against Obama at this point), not the least because unlike many of his fellow conservatives…
He isn’t a racist asshat.
