I've wished I were the interviewer or a debate contestant as Huckabee has kept "snowing" everybody about "Meritorious Scholarships" vs. "In-State Tuition Breaks" for illegal immigrants. George Stephanopolous finally nailed him as being deceitful on the issue:
Then he seems flabbergasted by George's question on whether or not he'd similarly support federal tuition breaks, federal student loans, and federal Pell Grants for illegal immigrants (like he'd never even thought about it):
He also opposed a bill that would have required proof of citizenship for voting (with a pretty lame excuse IMO):
NOTE TO HUCKABEE . . . IT'S THIS KIND OF "COMPASSION CONSERVATISM" BY YOU AND OTHERS THAT IS JUST AS MUCH OF A MAGNET FOR ILLEGALS TO COME HERE AS ARE THE JOBS. YOU ARE COMPOUNDING AND PROPAGATING THE PROBLEM WITH SUCH POLICIES!
If govenrment has enough money to provide scholarships/tuition breaks shouldn't our own citizens and legal immigrants have first priority? (Mitt made this argument at a Cedar Rapids, Iowa "Ask Mitt Anything" event last week that I saw on C-SPAN)
