Huckabee Got It Right

Yes, I know I don’t say that often, but credit where credit is due.

In the GOP debate last night that was sponsored by Sominex, the topic turned to the economy, and Mike Huckabee knows what he’s talking about on that topic. After all, as governor of Arkansas, Huck was in charge of a place with a Gross State Product of well into the hundreds of dollars (just kidding, Earl).

In the debate, Huckabee pointed out a hideous detail in the “Economic stimulus package” that’s going to send most Americans a check. Here’s that little known item: $150 billion of it is probably going to be borrowed from China.

That means that there’s a good chance we’ll get our checks and go buy something that was made in China.

Huckabee said that this package will indeed provide a great “Economic stimulus”… for China. It certainly won’t provide economic stimulus to our kids and grandkids who are going to be trying to pay all of it back — and to a nation with the long-term goal of wiping the U.S. as we know it from the map.

Great idea once again, Washington DC.

You can catch several clips from the debate, including the Huckabee warning, here at Hot Air.
