Mike Huckabee stopped by Motorhead’s, a biker bar in McDonough, this morning and spent maybe fifteen minutes shaking hands and having pictures taken and then left. A good friend that was there tells me that maybe ten or eleven people were there to see Huckabee, everyone else, another forty people, were there for Operation Home Front. Apparently, it was very easy to tell the Huckabee supporters apart since they were dressed in “very conservative” attire at a biker bar.
I was going to go, but I ended up doing yard work this morning and completely forgot about it until my friend called at around 12:50pm and asked me where I was. By the time I was ready to go, I called my friend back to let him know I was on the way and he said that Huckabee had already been in and left, that was at 1:25pm.
[UPDATE] While in Atlanta today, Huckabee said, “We’ve got to veto some spending bills if we’re going to survive. We need the veto to call attention to the runaway spending that we have.”
Huckabee allowed spending to increase 65% during his tenure as Governor, and these weren’t simple increases in spending for roads as he has passively stated. This is hardly a man we can trust to veto spending bills.
