I could not contain my shock (and laughter) when I saw the latest news from the Huck camp today. Huck actually called a press conference this morning with the advertised purpose of showing reporters a negative Romney ad. However during the conference Huck got all misty eyed and said that because he is a nice guy, he had decided not to run the anti-Romney ad. He said he'd thought long and hard about it, and it wasn't the kind of campaign he wanted to run. He even quoted scripture, saying "what profiteth a man if he gain the world and lose his soul."
BUT THEN...GET THIS...THEN HE TELLS REPORTERS THAT "SINCE I KNEW YOU WOULD DOUBT I HAD EVEN MADE THE AD" I'M GOING TO SHOW IT TO YOU ANYWAY.
What????!!!!! What a hipocrite. Are you kidding me? This is where Huck loses ALL credibility. He is once again following his pattern of smearing opponents while trying to come off as the "nice" guy. Huck knew darn well that the reporters would pick up the video and show it to everyone for free. This, of course, would not only accomplish his goal of smearing Romney, but it would help him air the ad to the whole country free of charge (remember his campaign is nearly broke). And if anyone still wonders about Huck's true intentions, the whole room was decorated with anti-Romney stuff, including a a big banner behind the speaker's pulpit with the words "enough is enough."
Talk about an ugly stunt that shows how DISHONEST Huckabee really is. Wow! This could be the scam that finally breaks Huckabee. People are sick of his dirty tricks. Yeah Huck, enough IS enough. Quit insulting the intelligence of the American people.
HERE'S THE FUNNY PART:
WHEN HUCK SAID HE WAS GOING TO SHOW THEM THE AD BECAUSE HE KNEW "THEY WOULD DOUBT HE HAD MADE IT" ALL THE REPORTERS IN THE ROOM LAUGHED AT HIM, AS IN, "I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS GUY WOULD THINK WE ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE HIM."
THE FALLOUT FROM HUCK'S JUVENILE STUNT SHOULD BE INTERESTING TO WATCH!
