In New Book, Huck Takes It To Romney


In his new book, "Do The Right Thing," Mike Huckabee writes that Mitt Romney's record was "anything but conservative until he changed the light bulbs in his chandelier in time to run for president." 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."

A Romney spokesperson has fired back, via Politico: "This type of pettiness is beneath Mike Huckabee. If we’re going to move the party forward, we need to offer more than personal recriminations. Unfortunately, in this book, Mike Huckabee is consumed with presumed slights, and he seems more interested in settling scores than in bringing people together."

U.S. News & World Report cites a passage towards the end of Huck's book that they think shows he'll run for president again in 2012.

Huckabee's new book hits the shelves on Tuesday.

Huck, you might want to look in the mirror. Your record was not so conservative either. Social maybe but fiscal you were a train wreck.

You failed to seal the deal, make the final sale with conservatives to capture the nomination. Heck, you were beat by a moderate, John McCain.

I think I would look at my own glass house.

I was thinking the same RudyT. The Republican party needs to stop the bickering within and return to the conservative beliefs that made them winners. Once they regain power, they must continue to practice those conservative beliefs. There is no room for big government rinos anymore.
