The New Frontrunner's Flip-Flops ...

Heidi Przybyla from Bloomberg has an interesting piece up regarding some of Mike Huckabee’s biggest flip-flops -- including Immigration, Cuba, and (as excerpted below) a Tax Pledge:

Huckabee oversaw tax increases, including 37 percent higher sales taxes, 16 percent higher motor fuel taxes and 103 percent higher cigarette taxes, according to Americans for Tax Reform in Washington.

Tax Pledge

Huckabee may face another problem with anti-tax advocates: his past pledge not to raise taxes. ``Tax increases are out,'' Huckabee said on Nov. 14, 2001, the Associated Press reported.

In the presidential race, Huckabee signed a similar pledge, drafted by Americans for Tax Reform. Grover Norquist, president of the anti-tax group, said he hadn't heard about Huckabee's earlier pledge.

``Americans for Tax Reform was and is critical of his tax- and-spending increases,'' Norquist said. ``This is not like being born again where it washes away the sins.''

An obvious point is that if he broke previous tax pledges, what's stopping him from doing so again?
