I am sure everyone is aware of Mike Huckabee's new book which labels Romneycare "socialized medicine." I just spent the past 45 minutes searching the internet for one instance where Huckabee called Obamacare "socialized medicine." I could not find anything.
Now, I realize that Huck has made a lot of comments since his rise to fame, so I might have missed it. Perhaps you Huck fans out there can show me where he made such a comment. But it appears to me that Huck has gone out of his way to maintain civil discourse regarding Obama and the Democrats. I applaud him for that. The Affordable Care Act is not socialized medicine (please see Great Britain or Canada for socialized medicine).
I want to make something clear here. I do not care if there is a bitter spat between Huckabee and Romney. This is not a soap opera. I do not base my voting decisions on inter-personal feuds. I really don't care what Huck thinks about Romney. What matters are the policies that these guys propose.
However, Huck's comment today reveals one of two things. Either Huck really doesn't know anything about health care policy or he is so petty that he is willing to stretch the truth so he can give Romney a black eye. Actually, come to think of it, I believe it is both of those things.
Ironically, Huckabee has sounded like a socialist in the past when speaking about health care.
Again, I patiently wait for a past Huckabee quote about Obama's "socialized medicine."
