Huckabee’s new book is coming out Tuesday. Well, we finally know why Huckabee has a craw up his rear end for Mitt Romney. Romney never called to congratulate Huckabee on his Iowa victory. According to Time:
He notes that Romney declined to make a congratulatory phone call after Huckabee beat the odds to win the Iowa caucuses, “which we took as a sign of total disrespect.”
Apparently, he spends much time attacking Romney. Huckabee’s pettiness knows no bounds. Personally, I don’t mind the populist tone injected into the campaign by Sarah Palin, but somehow Huckabee’s populism is just so crude. Time reveals:
He mocks Romney for suggesting, during one debate, more investment in high-yield stocks as a solution to economic woes. “Let them eat stocks!” Huckabee jokes.
For all those dismissive of Romney, Huckabee also offers this astute analysis on Fred Thompson:
“Fred Thompson never did grasp the dynamics of the race or the country, and his amazingly lackluster campaign reflected just how disconnected he was with the people”
Thompson didn’t grasp the country. Priceless. Huckabee appears especially bitter that many Christian conservative leaders did not back him. On Gary Bauer, Time states:
He also accuses Bauer of putting national security before bedrock social issues like the sanctity of life and traditional marriage.
How misguided. Can you believe a Christian actually put national security above gay marriage? On soliciting the support of hatemonger Reverend Hagee:
Huckabee says he spoke to Hagee by phone before the McCain endorsement while preparing for a spot on Saturday Night Live. “I asked if he had prayed about this and believed this was what the Lord wanted him to do,”
Kowtowing to a moron like Hagee is bad enough, but admitting he asked Hagee if he prayed over his decision and if he thought the Lord wanted him to back McCain is unbearable.
This is exactly how you rebuild the Republican Party. Such humility, grace and intellect for a “christian leader”.
