Rush Limbaugh is apparently caught up in another moment of nostalgia in wanting to compare every every presidential candidate to Ronald Reagan. In a recent WorldNetDaily article, he made his latest Reagan sound-off by adamantly denying that Republican presidential candidate and Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee is anything like the former President.
“I don’t support open borders and amnesty. I don’t support the release of hundreds of criminals. I don’t support repeated increases in taxes. I don’t support national health care, whether you call it a children’s program or whatever it is. I don’t support anti-war rhetoric. I don’t support Republican Candidates trashing the war in Iraq when we’re winning it. I don’t support Republican candidates claiming the president doesn’t read the National Intelligence Estimates as an excuse for him not knowing what the hell is in one. And that’s Governor Huckabee,” said Limbaugh in the WorldNetDaily article.
Ah, but does Limbaugh support an increase in government spending like Reagan did? If so, Huckabee might be Limbaugh’s huckleberry! Maybe the two are more alike than you thought, Rush. And if that wasn’t enough Reagan nostalgia to get you excited for brining in Huckabee, maybe this will get you going.
