Desperate, Trash Talkin Romney: Huckabee is finished

I’ll be sure to re-post this Wednesday – after the Michigan results where Mitt Romney will come in second place with yet another “Silver medal”


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 01/11/08 Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said Friday that Mike Huckabee has won his last primary.

Speaking via telephone with editors and reporters from the AJC, Romney said his campaign for the nomination remains strong and predicted that he will win Tuesday’s primary in Michigan.

From there, Romney said, he’ll make “a strong push in South Carolina,” and be competitive in the Jan. 29 Florida primary, all of which will lead to Super Tuesday and the Feb. 5 Georgia primary.

Huckabee, Romney said, is “taking a page from (Democratic candidate) John Edwards’ playbook” as “the guy for the little person.”

Huckabee bested Romney in the Iowa caucus and Romney lost to Sen. John McCain in New Hampshire.

Romney predicted that the South Carolina primary will come down to a fight between himself and McCain.

Huckabee’s Georgia communications director Shawn Davis dismissed Romney’s comments.

Considering Romney is trailing Huckabee in Michigan, South Carolina and everywhere we are competing, his comments seem to reflect a distressed campaign, Davis said.

I don’t see how his insults are going to improve his outlook here in Georgia.

    despite the spin, Romney might just be right given the MSM love fest with McCain.

  2. wickle Says:

    Mitt Romney can’t believe that a mere peasant would dare rise up and challenge him.

    In terms of substance, let’s remember that this is the same Romney who said that it takes at least $20 million to be in the top tier. He was wrong.

    Romney is trash-talking, and it’s that simple.

    You know, Jamelle was saying something similar about Hillary Clinton today.

    I genuinely hope that they both crash and burn soon.

    By the way … Romney is condemning Huckabee for liking the little guy? It seems to me that Huckabee is very right when he says that people don’t want a guy who reminds them of the man who laid them off.

    One poll over at Real Clear Politics has romney trailing McCain here in Michigan (not the greatest Poll for Huckabee). However, if Romney loses again (especially here in his “dear beloved homeland” … I shall gag if I see that ad again), he’ll be in big trouble. His idea that SC is between him and McCain is absurd at best! Spin spin spin!

    I am a sophisticated liberal Christian from the East coast and I cannot stand lower class fundamentalist Christians from the south. If Huckabee is elected either President or Vice President then I am moving to France!

  6. billgarcia Says:

    sophisticated liberal christian? what”s a liberal Christian? That’s an oxymoron my friend… values are values…

  7. wickle Says:

    Upper Class “Christian” –

    I think we might even be willing to chip in and buy you the ticket.

    If you find yourself hating Christians, then you might want to think about re-evaluating your priorities.

    UPPER CLASS CHRISTIAN….if you’re mormon,say it…if you’re a catholic,say it…there’s no such thing as liberal christian.I define a liberal christian as this:one foot is in the world and the other foot is in the liberal church[liberal christians..are they really saved]?
