Republican presidential hopeful former Massachussets Gov. Mitt Romney speaks to local residents during a campaign stop Saturday, Dec. 15, 2007, in Humboldt, Iowa.
Mitt Romney, trailing in the Presidential polls to former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angrily attacked him today as Un-Republican.
Mitt Romney accused Republican presidential rival Mike Huckabee of “running from the wrong party” for criticizing President Bush’s foreign policy as an “arrogant bunker mentality.”
Romney defended Bush against Huckabee’s charge, which the former Arkansas governor leveled in the January-February issue of the respected journal Foreign Affairs.
“I can’t believe he’d say that,” Romney said to a gathering of about 100 supporters in a restaurant here. “I had to look againâ€”did this come from Barack Obama or from Hillary Clinton? Did it come from John Edwards? No, it was Governor Huckabee.”
And, it is wrong for Mike Huckabee to criticize President Bush whose leadership has plunged the GOP into disarray and who (with his failed leadership) has presided over the loss of majorities in Congress?
Mitt Romney shows his desperation in the polls with his NASTY and NEGATIVE television ads and direct mail pieces.
Now, there is this unnecessary and unwarranted attack on Huckabee.
Romney’s desperation is becoming pathetic. Moreover, is there is any candidate who has violated the GOP’s 11th commandment more than Romney in this campaign? Look at this ad Romney is running in Iowa:
Mitt, how about running a clean and honorable campaign? Enough of the desperate, nasty and dirty politics.
Mitt personally attacks Huckabee in these quotes:
â€œI simply canâ€™t believe that. I canâ€™t believe heâ€™d say that. Iâ€™m afraid heâ€™s running from the wrong party.â€
Later with reporters, Romney went further into his criticism. â€œThe suggestion that foreign affairs is like children on a playground — thatâ€™s not exactly the allegory I would draw upon. Itâ€™s a far more serious and monumental effort than kids at school.â€ He also leveled the following slam: â€œI was disappointed in the quality of the thinking and the quality of the recommendations there.â€
