Mike Huckabee last night in Iowa lashed out against Mitt Romney and defended John McCain as an American hero. The comments above were in response to this negative attack ad now airing against McCain in New Hampshire:

“Desperate is one thing, but when you get desperate and dishonest its not a pretty sight. But then I saw the ad he’s using against McCain in New Hampshire”, Huckabee said in front of an audience of 500. “it’s one thing to attack me…John McCain is a true, honest-to-God American hero, and we should respect and honor him for who he is.”

Actually, Huckabee who has limited resources to go “on air” against money bags Mitt is defending HIMSELF from this similar attack ad from Romney airing in Iowa where Huckabee leads in the polls.

Huckabee wants to take the “high road” and is invoking the GOP 11th Commandment – thou shall not speak ill of another Republican. But, Huckabee has no choice since he does not have the campaign resources to go tit for tat with Romney – and neither does McCain – but he as anyway in an all or nothing gambit in New Hampshire.

Stay tuned…..

Update:

Hotline has more on the strategy of why Huckabee now hearts John McCain:

If Mike Huckabee can defeat Mitt Romney in Iowa and John McCain dispatches the former Massachusetts governor in the Granite State, the one-two punch could knock Romney right out of the race. And Huck, by expressing his admiration for McCain last night in Ottumwa, shows plainly that he hopes the two men can do just that.

[…] If Romney wants to waste his money and that of his remaining donors chasing an impossible dream or to set himself up for a later run while sabotaging GOP prospects this Fall, then his image of a do anything and say anything to get himself elected pol will be reinforced. Sort of self-defeating, wouldn’t one say? […]
