GOP Frontrunner Huckabee Blasts BushCo Foreign Policy
American foreign policy needs to change its tone and attitude, open up, and reach out. The Bush administration’s arrogant bunker mentality has been counterproductive at home and abroad.
This patently obvious fact is sure to make the Right Wing heads explode. Let's enjoy the moment of course, but also understand something about the politics - there is some method to Huckabee's madness it seems to me. There are certainly a significant segment of the GOP primary electorate who agrees with what Huckabee wrote. Now they have a viable candidate. As long as there is a multicandidate race, I think this move by Huckabee can make good sense. Even better, if Huckabee captures the nomination, he then is well positioned to not be shackled to Bush.
Mitt Romney is focused on the nomination:
"I can't believe he'd say that. I'm afraid he's running from the wrong party," Romney said to a gathering of about 100 supporters in a restaurant here. "I had to look again -- did this come from Barack Obama or from Hillary Clinton? Did it come from John Edwards? No, it was Governor Huckabee."
Thus, Huckabee serves a purpose for Dems - he pushes Romeny, the likely nominee imo, into Bush's arms. He'll have to carry that into the general election.
