Mike Huckabee takes the cake.

Today he called a room full of reporters together and told them that he had decided he was going to refuse to go negative in the campaign anymore. And, to prove that, he announced that he was going to pull an attack ad against Mitt Romney which was scheduled to play throughout Iowa.

At that point, you say, "wow, how nice, how neat, how unusual".

But then Huckabee went on and told the assembled room full of reporters and cameras that he was going to show them the commercial.
He then broadcast it for a room crammed with reporters, photographers and television cameras.

The assembled media found the display hilarious and at several points laughed out loud.
Hilarious? It is the height of gall if you ask me.
Asked if he wasn’t being hypocritical by showing the ad to a roomful of cameras that are likely to record it and show it — for free — around the country, Mr. Huckabee said he was showing it to reporters only because reporters were so cynical that if he didn’t show it, they would not believe that he really had made such an ad.
Yeah, right Mike. I'm sure they've never heard of "cynical manipulation" either. If they weren't cynical before you began speaking they're morons if they're not cynical now.


Go to the link and watch the two minute video of the news conference. Even Huckabee can't keep a straight face while making the above claim. And no, I don't have the ad video and even if I did, I wouldn't post it (and I'm not even a Romney fan).

I didn’t really think it was possible to hate any Repub candidate more than I hate John McCain... (Keating 5, McCain-Feingold, "Group of 14", "amnesty for illegal immigrants", etc.)

I was wrong!

Like I keep saying, this man is Bill Clinton with a tinsel halo. Our first televangelist President. Be still my buoyant gorge.

Huckabee is the perfect antidote to wingnuttery.

Wingnuts hate him for two reasons: (1) He appears to care about poor people; (2) He really is religious.

Huckabee is not fit to be president. But not because of 1 or 2.

mk, just the other day you were bemoaning the fact that Republicans like Huckabee. I guess the talking points have changed today?

awww, and you were doing so well.

Hint: you might garner some actual consideration as a human being if you didn’t constantly refer to everyone you disagreed with as a ’wingnut’.

we have enough Erbs on this board as it is.

Many more "endorsements" like mkultura’s and Huckabee is even more done for. And the Leftards would love to see us nominate someone like Ron Paul or Huckabee. That’s why they get a pass from the MSM (D-Pressroom).

And of course he "cares". Creating new slaves on the Communist plantation is always the hallmark of "caring".

Yes, let’s put the two MK comments about Huckabee together:
There is a reason an ignorant fool like Huckabee is, depending on the poll, leading among GOP hopefuls in Iowa.
Wingnuts hate him for two reasons: (1) He appears to care about poor people; (2) He really is religious.
Evidentally, MK must believe that the Republican party really cares about poor people since Huckabee is polling so well.

The Dean scream without the noise.

Chucklebee, the first new shuck and jive act since BJ, and from the same state. I wonder if there really is something in the water down there.

I’d like to thank mk for confirming what I’ve thought all along: Huckabee is nothing but a mushy-headed liberal wrapped in a social conservative’s body. He’s the perfect storm of everything I personally would dislike in a president.

It must be the water, since I don’t think either of them drink alcohol. Well, I think Wee Willy did once, but he didn’t swallow.
