This sentence,

("He has criticized President George W. Bush's tax cuts as being too oriented towards the wealthy, although the Congressional Budget Office released a report in 2004, that claimed the opposite." )

does not have a source, and as far as i have seen is not supported by his statements [1]. I may be wrong, but this allegation should be taken off the article, unless proven otherwise. Thanks, --Tash 11:59, 27 August 2007 (EDT)

Also, this sentence at the end of the top summary should be fixed:

"His victory has placed moved him unto the top tier of Republican primary canidates[3][4]."

Religion

hey im supprised that there isn`t more info on his religious views, even fox are suggesting that all the religious talk means he doesn`t have to talk about real politics. Personally I quite like the guy he seems like a genuine caring person but I think if he does win the republican nomination the democrats will win the election. He is too conservative to pull in any democrat votes. This is what fox are saying and I think it might be true, if he wins the nomination the republicans dont stand a chance of winning the presidency. I know this might be a little hard to swallow for some but i think its true, just as the democrats dont stand a chance if the nominate a far left nut, the same (not that im calling any1 a nut) could be said for the GOP. --Realist2 09:13, 19 December 2007 (EST)

By the way in not American im british but i find American politics fasinating, British politics are dull and theres no difference in the parties, all of them, even our most conservative mainstream party is centre, maybe centre left! If you do want to vote for a conservative party the only option is the BNP (British National Party) but them are racists so no-one likes them and they get like 3% of the vote. --Realist2 09:20, 19 December 2007 (EST)

Mike Huckabee is actually a reliable candidate?

[2],

Huckabee's statement that he agreed with the court's sodomy ruling was made one week after the decision.

Another source: Mike Huckabee by James Buchanan . Mike Huckabee disgraceful records

I think that Mike Huckabee is a liberal hoax, who is temporarily supporting conservative ideas to be promoted in the GOP. I think that Ron Paul is the right conservative candidate. Thiudareiks 09:42, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Talk pages on CP are actually meant to discuss the article, not a general discussion forum about the subject of the article. What you think about eg Mike Huckabee is irrelevant. Make a referenced contribution to the article or drink a nice cup of "shsssssh" :) 10px Fox (talk|contribs) 09:50, 1 January 2008 (EST)

I've heard that he hasn't stood up well for freedom of education. Could be bad for homeschoolers if he becomes president.

Gossip removed

I took out a section that was just put back in, with the editor saying it was only fair to put in controversy about both sides. This is "controversy" about his son! This deserves no place in an article about him. If you have controversies actually about the candidate, feel free to add them. ThomasB 22:50, 3 January 2008 (EST)

Actually there is reason to mention this particular incident. Mike Huckabee is now facing questions as to how large of a role he played in preventing a state investigation into the incident. The then Chief of State Police has testified that people close to Huckabee (his attorney and Chief of Staff) personally called the local prosecuting attorney to reduce the chances of an investigation. It is currently unclear how large a role Huckabee took in stopping the investigation into his son's actions, but it is certainly relevant as it is a possible example of corruption.

This is liberal claptrap, the kind of gossip that has ruined Wikipedia and poisons debate of the issues. It's pathetic, really. Ever hear of "innocent until proven guilty"? Not only is proof lacking, but there are not even any charges. It has no place here.--Aschlafly 16:29, 4 January 2008 (EST)

The lack of charges, and innocent until proven guilty is not the issue here. The issue is that there is the possibility that Huckabee abused his position of power to protect his son. The candidate's political stance is irrelevant here, it is a question as to whether his past actions show his willingness to protect those close to him from the law. All crimes, no matter who committed them, should be investigated to the full extent of the law. Kiss20 17:22, 4 January 2008

Some people who don't like Huckabee have raised unsubstantiated charges that are not particularly serious anyway. Not here.--Aschlafly 17:24, 4 January 2008 (EST)

Unsubstantiated? The chief of state police testified that he was pressured by two people very close to Huckabee to cease any investigation. That seems pretty substantial. Kiss20 17:28, 4 January 2008

Not here. Go to Wikipedia for that National-Enquirer stuff. We have more significant things to discuss and learn here.--Aschlafly 17:38, 4 January 2008 (EST)

Whats interesting here is that this is considered gossip and ignored by the conservapedia junta and considered "not serious" despite a chief of police testifying about it. However I am almost certain that if it was a claim against say, Barack Obama, it would no doubt receive criticism. Rebuttal? MetcalfeM

Keep goin Huck!

I added this to the article, but I wanted to say that despite finishing third in the Republican Primary, I expect Huck to pull it out in the long run! South Carolina has always been kind to social conservatives and openly evangelical candidates!-MexMax 00:44, 9 January 2008 (EST)
