Ron Paul Hits Huckabee on Taxes

Ron Paul Hits Huckabee on Taxes

By Matthew Mosk
Apparently, there's only room in the Republican presidential field for one candidate who wants to abolish the IRS. At least that seems to be the message in a new Ron Paul mailing in New Hampshire. The glossy flyer from the Texas congressman and maverick presidential contender does not target the two Republicans who lead in the polls there (Mitt Romney and John McCain); it instead goes after Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee, calling him a "habitual tax hiker."

Paul has been putting to use his $20 million fourth-quarter fundraising haul with a series of mailings, though this is the first to go negative. The piece also carries two photographs -- one shows two former Arkansas governors -- Huckabee and former President Bill Clinton -- in a frame together. The other shows Paul with Ronald Reagan (though does not mention that Paul eventually criticized Reagan as a "failure.")

The latest polls in New Hampshire show Huckabee charging further ahead of Paul, with Huckabee fighting with Rudy Giuliani for third place, and Paul stuck in fifth.

Interesting to see Paul on the offensive against the front runner.

I'd be more interested in seeing him draw a distinction between his positions and those of the Democrats, but I guess this is what you get in the primaries.

Why must Mr. Paul always be referred to as "Ron Paul", instead of Paul. I mean, you refer to Huckleberry as just plain "Huckleberry", not "Mike Huckelberry."

WTF? You all have a clear case of "John DAVID fugging Bootie" syndrome.

I refer to him as Ron Paul or Dr. Paul, out of respect for his title. I try to give all doctors their due.

Well, that's fair because it's on the man's record regarding issues.
Huck wants to handle poverty too. wtf?

Anyhow, the public follows the line of attack...so I think this is good.

I got a comment in a rep, won't say who, from an Iowan who told me the Paul activists spent the weekend digging through trash to dig up dirt on a radio personality instead of campaigning. Have you heard anything on this?

I always wondered about the guys who named themselves Pope Pius the X or whatever. Isn't a pope naming himself Pius kind of vain? Like if we had a candidate name himself Mike Presidential?

If only the Republicans were a viable party that can win the national election.

Why the hard-on over taxes? Taxes are a necessary evil. They represent that which we all agree upon. If everyone reverted to being paranoid passive-aggressive, conservative types who behave as if taxes were the gateway to hell, we'd still be living in caves and dragging women around by the hair.
