Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, polling a distant fourth in the upcoming Florida primaries, continued to attack former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, while offering implicit support for his other rival, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in his appearance on "Fox News Sunday."
When asked to take sides on a dispute between Romney and McCain over whether the former Massachusetts governor called for a timetable for withdrawal in Iraq last April, Huckabee sided squarely with McCain.
Dishonest? Ive never seen John McCain say something that is just blatantly untrue, Huckabee said. Huckabee later praised McCain, saying we have a civil approach to presidential process. Neither of us has sought the office by cracking the kneecaps of the other.
But then he figuratively cracked the kneecaps of Romney by questioning the former governors veracity.
There are published reports that Ive seen in which Mitt Romney did in fact talk about support for not a public timetable but a secret timetable that would be held by administration officials and members of Congress, Huckabee said.
And during the interview, he quickly papered over several policy disagreements between himself and McCain, but whacked Romney over his business experience, claiming he wasnt impressed with Romneys private sector experience.
When Mitt Romney and the other Republicans a few months ago in Dearborn, Michigan, at the debate were talking about how great the economy was, I was jeered and sneered, but I was the one saying it may not be that great, Huckabee said.
I was understanding that, seeing it, predicting it. People were laughing at me then; now they have to admit that I was right.
Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Well Gol-l-ly!
McSwine is the amnesty man, and so is Huck.
John McCain would still SIGN THE BILL to grant amnesty to the crimnals.
And if its not McCain, then who do you think will be the GOP nominee?
* Notice we don't even talk about Rudy anymore...
“Gomer is running for vice president under Juan McCainez, IMO.”
It’s so transparent, its .... ICKY.
Say no to McVain/Huckster.Say NO to proamnesty-proCO2caps-CFR-nannystate-RINO John McCain
Sounds like you’re leaning towards Romney.
Which is what I thought all along.
A rhetorical question doesn’t amount to an endorsement.
I have no dog in this hunt.
Huckaliar to McAmnesty;
Meatloaf - I’d Lie For You
John M will be the GOP nominee. He won't win the election, though.
