Mike Huckabee in the White House: An Administration of Tough Love

Mike Huckabee sat down with Neil Cavuto and talked about being honest with the American people on the budget cuts that are needed to get our country back on the fiscal right track.

"Either we are honest with the people of this country and tell them or.....We have to be the administration of tough love. Tough understandings on limits. If you take boundaries away from the spending capacity of a government it is totally out of control. That's what we have now."

* Advocate very strong cuts and then manage those cuts so it does not create huge holes for people.

* Likes Paul Ryan's Medicaid block grant program-give it back to the states.

* It is possible to raise the rate at which people get in to Medicare. Let's treat 60 like it is the new 40. Raise the eligibility to 70 for those who are under the age of 55 because people are living longer.

Mike Huckabee can talk the talk. But has he walked the walk? Is he a tax-cutter and a spending slasher? Quite the opposite.

Mike Huckabee could never beat Obama. I don't care what the polls say. Huckabee is riding his Fox show for popularity. The Obama machine would make Huckabee look like a loon.

If we want to DEFEAT OBAMA, we need to get SERIOUS. And no one who says "I'll decide whether to run by the end of summer" is SERIOUS. We need a candidate with a strong fundraising apparatus and a strong organization. We need a problem-solving candidate who is reasonable but still Conservative.

Mitt Romney is the man to BEAT OBAMA. Let's get this show on the road.

Uh, sorry Huck. We need more than someone talking about tough love. You have no record of actually doing this. You fold like a cheap suit.

We need someone with that steel spine Sarah is always talking about, and it ain't you.

Besides, you're not into math.
