Huckabee: Romney running 'dishonest' campaignimages.politico.com

politico.com — Four days before the Iowa caucuses, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Sunday lashed out at Mitt Romney as desperate, dishonorable and dishonest - a notable change in tone that reflects signs Huckabee's amazing insurgency has peaked.

"Mitt Romney is running a very desperate and, frankly, a dishonest campaign," Huckabee said in Des Moines on NBC's "Meet the Press." "If you aren't being honest in obtaining the job, can we trust you if you get the job?"

Appearing after Huckabee, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) backed away from his recent suggestion that he would not run again if he didn't win this time.

An MSNBC-McClatchy Newspapers poll of Iowa out Sunday morning says Huckabee's "bubble bursts." Romney is at 27 percent, and Huckabee is at 23 percent, with a margin of error of 5 percent.

On "Meet the Press," Huckabee declined to repeat his earlier assertion that he would win Iowa. Moderator Tim Russert pressed him on whether it would be a miracle if he won.

"By my definition, yes, it would," Huckabee said with a chuckle.

Mike I think is dishonorable for selling people with religious views. On the other hand Mitt I have a hard time believing his flip flops.

They are both dirt bags.One just dresses better than the other.Neither have any honor and they both lie to make them selfs look good.Fools bite people who research know not to bite.

6. Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR): Governor Huckabee enjoyed a meteoric rise in the polls in December 2007, which prompted a more thorough review of his ethics record. According to The Associated Press: "[Huckabee's] career has also been colored by 14 ethics complaints and a volley of questions about his integrity, ranging from his management of campaign cash to his use of a nonprofit organization to subsidize his income to his destruction of state computer files on his way out of the governor's office." And what was Governor Huckabee's response to these ethics allegations? Rather than cooperating with investigators, Huckabee sued the state ethics commission twice and attempted to shut the ethics process down

The only good thing is mitt hasn't made this list yet.
