Mike Huckabee says Mitt Romney owes him an apology.

Mike Huckabee told me Sunday that Mitt Romney should apologize for saying “blatantly untrue” things about him.

Huckabee also said such an apology would be accepted only if Romney also admitted that he “has not been forthcoming” about his own record.

Both statements came in a phone interview, after I had asked Huckabee whether he thinks he was owed an apology for negative commercials Romney has been running about him.

The Money Quotes:

  • “I didn’t draw first blood and say terrible things about Mitt,” Huckabee said. “I’m not angry. This is politics; it is the way it works. But he not only wants to make up his record, but my record.”
  • “This is not the way a man ought to become president,” Huckabee went on. “Certainly not in our party.”

Huckabee also said that Romney should take down his negative television ads because they are “DISHONEST.” See below:


Romney’s Madden says no apology is coming and the Arkansan is showing signs of “testiness and irritability.”

Huckabee, in the meantime, says that he may have to respond with his own negative ads.

Huckabee also hinted that he might hit back at Romney with ads of his own. “We will have a final decision on that announced tomorrow,” Huckabee said Sunday. “We reserve the right to respond in any way. I don’t want to be viewed as going negative, but it is necessary to get the facts out.”

Since Huckabee took most of the day off from retail campaigning in Iowa to film new television ads, Flap would bet the farm that a “NEW NEGATIVE” ad against Romney will be airing by noon tomorrow, Pacific time.

No 11th Commandment here folks.

Stay tuned……

    My problem with Mike Huckabee is he makes these bold accusations accusing Mitt Romney of lying, and then has nothing to back it up with. Here are some questions Gov.

    Mike Huckabee – did you grant 1033 commutations and pardons during your time as governor? If not, what is the actual number of commutations and pardons?

    Mike Huckabee – did the Arkansas budget go from 6 billion dollars to 16 billion dollars during your time as governor? If not, what is that actual dollar amount your budget increased during your time as governor?

    Mike Huckabee – did you lessen the mandatory sentences for meth dealers, or increase the sentences for meth dealers? Give me some specifics.

  2. Big Jay says:

    You say that Mitt Romney is distorting your record when he says that Secretary Rice used the word ‘ludicrous’ – what did she actually say?

    You pardoned or commuted 12 murderers – what was the actual number of convicted murderers you commuted or pardoned?

    Mitt says you supported in state tuition for illegal aliens. The bill you actually signed, did it contain a provision to give in state tuition to illegal aliens, or the children of illegal aliens? Yes or no?

    Mike, when you say that Mitt Romney is being dishonest, and you give no actual evidence to back it up, that’s called a personal attack.

    And I don’t like it.
