What The Huck?

By  | 

What Huckabee pulled today was not only hilariously and woefully transparent, it also made him appear worse than the guy he was trying to smear.

From NY Times:

Mike Huckabee is holding a press conference right now in which he was supposed to unveil a new negative ad against arch rival Mitt Romney. But Mr. Huckabee came to the press conference and announced he’d had a change of heart and would not be broadcasting the ad after all.

But wait! It gets better.

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.

Here’s the video:

From watching the video, I get what he was saying and he says it sincerely, but come on Huck…you’re smarter than that!

Maybe Ed Rollins has lost his touch after all.

    In a political campaign, I don’t think there is nothing wrong with a candidate expressing truthful negative comments about his opponent’s record. But to me, trying to smear an opponent with insinuations about his religion, trying to sound more religious than his opponent, or trying to fool the press into running free negative ads about his opponent (under the guise of putting an end to negative campaigning) all seems like a candidate that has run out of bullets and is throwing his gun at his opponent in desperation.
