Huckabee Attacking Romney

In a new book obviously mistitled Do the Right Thing, Mike Huckabee does the wrong thing by attacking Mitt Romney for changing his position on issues like abortion and same-sex marriage.  As an ordained Baptist minister, wouldn’t Huckabee rejoice when someone changed his mind and joined Huckabee’s church?  Why won’t he allow Romney the opportunity of repentance that Christians preach? 

In his book, Huckabee apparently whines that “Romney and his staff [disrespected] him during the campaign for the GOP nomination, and complains that Romney never called to congratulate him after winning the Iowa caucus in January” (“Mike Huckabee Sharpens Knives“).  Huckabee was the one who colluded with John McCain to steal the West Virginia primary from Romney (“Romney Camp“), helping to saddle the Republican Party with John McCain as its presidential candidate.

On her radio show this morning, Laura Ingraham asked Romney more than once why he thought Huckabee was attacking him.  Taking the high road, Romney wouldn’t answer her question.  Who is doing the right thing now, Huckabee or Romney?
