Huckabee is so Full of It

In the current issue of Foreign Affairs magazine, Huckabee says, “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.”

That stance prompted Romney, on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, to call on Huckabee to apologize to President Bush for his remarks.

“I said, ‘Well, did this come from Barack Obama or from Hillary Clinton? Did it come from John Edwards?’ No, it was Gov. Huckabee,” Romney told host Tim Russert. “The truth of the matter is this president has kept us safe these last six years and that has not been easy to do.”

Huckabee said he didn’t have anything for which to apologize.

I didn’t say the president was arrogant,” Huckabee told CNN on Sunday. “One of my opponents has mistakenly, maybe purposefully, misstated my position on that. I’ve said the policies have been arrogant.

Huckabee cannot even swallow his own words.

By attacking the President’s policies he is attacking the President. To claim otherwise is so bizarre. “Oh Bush is a fine guy! I’m not saying he is arrogant, I’m saying what he does as President is arrogant.”

This is like stating that an athlete has a sloppy style of play, but saying at the same time they are not a sloppy athlete.
