Brownback to Drop Out

According to the AP, Sam Brownback will drop out of the presidential race.

This is no surprise to me. Brownback has struggled throughout the entire year with fundraising and making a case for his candidacy to conservatives. His campaign took a blow in the August Ames poll, in which Huckabee came in second. Since then, he has had very little media attention and his chances at the nomination dwindled to almost nothing.

Brownback has raised about $4 million for the entire year and has only $94,000 left on hand for his presidential bid. Failure does not even begin to describe his campaign.

“I know Senator Brownback enjoyed campaigning and meeting new people in talking about ideas for the future of America, but I think it came down to money,” said one person close to Brownback, who requested anonymity because the candidate had not yet announced his plans.

So, question is, would Brownback seek Sabelius’ Governor’s seat and would Sebelius seek Brownback’s Senate seat?

And, is Duncan Hunter next?

Huckabee: Get Rid of the IRS

Ron Paul is not the only one with radical ideas, such as getting rid of the CIA and the Federal Reserve. Mike Huckabee says he will like to get rid of the IRS.

Huckabee also says excessive taxation, excessive regulation and excessive litigation is leading to job migration in this country.

According to Huckabee the IRS is beyond repair. “I come from the deep south in Arkansas, and we have a feeling if you can’t fix it with duct tape and WD-40, it can’t be fixed.”

If the IRS was canned, Huckabee said April 15 would just be another spring day, not the most dreaded day of the year.

Sounds great on the surface, but I need to know more.
