Huckabee Finally Leaves Race

Posted in Election 2008 by Ryan on the March 5th, 2008

Huckabee has finally left the race, but not without a final drop of hypocrisy.

“We kept the faith,” he told his end-of-the-road rally Tuesday after John McCain clinched the nomination. “I’d rather lose an election than lose the principles that got me into politics in the first place.”

This is a fine tradition for Mike Huckabee.

Act the part but do the opposite.

Again and again:

HUCKABEE: I’m just saying I won’t have to fake it at all. Senator McCain knows I have nothing but the highest respect for him. I think he does for me. Our relationship has been cordial.

I don’t have to go and, behind the scenes, apologize or hope nothing gets brought up that’s been said in the past. We have a good, clean record. And I see no reason not to keep it that way.

CAVUTO: You don’t like Governor Romney, do you?

HUCKABEE: It’s not a matter of not liking him. I was disappointed in the way that he ran his campaign, where he attacked Senator McCain, he attacked Rudy Giuliani, he attacked me.

Let’s see, Romney pointed out that, as Governor of Arkansas, Huckabee RAISED taxes $500 million, increased spending more than 50%, charged Mexico $1.00 per year for rent on the consulate office there, and fought to give illegal immigrants in-state scholarships and tuition breaks. Since all those things are true of Huckabee’s record, how is that an attack? And was it really necessary to, once again, personally attack Romney by implying his support of McCain is phony? The man’s not even in the race anymore and Huckaphony still can’t stop attacking him.
