We've seen in the last couple of days how the Country Clubbers will use lies by former Reagan Administration officials and spread them through their media lapdogs. Even when they are called out on their lies, many of them, like Rich Lowry at National Review, double down on stupid.
Add Mike Huckabee to the list. Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection links to a Fox News interview with the former Arkansas governor.
Former GOP presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee “would love for” Newt Gingrich to pull a political campaign ad that features a comment he made during the 2008 campaign that appears to slam Mitt Romney for being “dishonest.”
“I know Newt Gingrich at the end of the ad says I approved this message, well let me just say, I didn’t approve that message,” Huckabee said in an interview Friday on Fox News.
The former governor of Arkansas said his words were “taken out of context” and were also ” deceptive” because he was not referring to Romney, one of his 2008 primary rivals.
“That spot, which was back in December of 2007, never mentioned Mitt Romney by name, it never said anything about Mitt Romney. It was a general statement,” Huckabee, has not endorsed anyone so far in the 2012 presidential race, and says he doesn’t plan to do so.
OK, here's both videos below, you be the judge...is Huckabee right, or is he being dishonest?
Seriously...the GOP establishment has become so delusional in their efforts to convince us to get behind Romney, regardless of the facts about him. Their behavior is similar to a recovering alcoholic who has decided to convince everyone (and himself) he can drink like a normal person and will make the most illogical rationalizations to explain why.
