As if the interview with the Jerome Corsi co-author I already wrote about here wasn't bad enough, Cavuto fill-in followed up with this interview with Mike Huckabee, who by the way thinks that the Corsi buddy is so wonderful he should run for office.

Huckabee started out the segment by claiming that it would somehow be possible to go past the August 2nd deadline on the debt ceiling without having the bond markets react or our credit rating harmed and interest rates going through the roof, Huckabee. So Huckabee's in the Michele Bachmann, Brit Hume camp of repeating the fantasy that it would not be devastating to our economy and that a "partial default" is something that should be considered.

He uses the excuse that President Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling when he was in the Senate even though the president has admitted that vote was political and he took it as a protest vote knowing full well there wasn't honestly any chance of the debt ceiling not being raised because of it.

After criticizing the Obama administration for the terrible jobs numbers and after host Chris Cotter mentioning talk of another stimulus, Huckabee of course has the Republicans standard solutions for everything that we already know doesn't work -- lower taxes and gut regulations. And of course he trots out the lie that if we heaven forbid raise taxes on anyone, it's "increasing the size of government."

Naturally he never specifies just what the hell that's supposed to mean. I'd love for once to see someone make one of these clowns say specifically just what parts of the government they think are "too big." We already know the answer, which is anything that helps the poor and the working class. I'd just like to see someone make them have to admit that out loud for once.

For someone who pretends to be a Christian, HuckaJesus sure has got his priorities backwards doesn't he? Someone needs to remind him that Jesus didn't preach that we should steal from the poor to give to the rich.
