Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's comments yesterday at CPAC show an inconsistency......And I just want him to know the hypocrisy of his actions will never endear him to the voters.
Mike said some things I heartily agree with, war on terrorism, free markets, less restrictions on business etc. etc.
Problem is that Mike's actions don't coincide with that speech. Huckabee claims he's pro-business yet his actions in 2006 speak differently:
Governor says workplace smoking ban likely in special session
Wednesday, Jan 11, 2006 By Rob Moritz
Arkansas News Bureau LITTLE ROCK - Gov. Mike Huckabee said Tuesday that banning smoking from the workplace likely would be on the agenda if he calls a special session this year to address public education.
"While I respect the rights of people to engage in whatever legal habits and practices they wish, I do think it's time that we put a ban on smoking in the workplace..."
Smoking bans are a completely unnecessary, and unjustified intrusion on small business; because OSHA air quality standards already protect the health of all workers as I have demonstrated here:
And smoking bans destroy small businesses and jobs at an alarming rate as we've discovered here in the Twin Cities:
So sorry Mr. Huckabee.....we are not fooled by your new found belief in the free market system.........your record speaks differently.
