There was tons of speculation today that Mike Huckabee had been offered the position of Ambassador to Israel.

It was stoked when The Daily Mail ran the story:

This is one of the more unusual campaign closing statements.

Mike Huckabee in the past has had the pulse of Iowa. But he’s been relegated to the undercard debates recently.

So here is a rather “interesting” closing video. It focuses more on the Democrats than his Republican competitors.

Staff salary cuts, negligible fundraising, and crummy polling are usually good indicators a campaign is on its last leg.

Thursday, Politico reported former Arkansas Governor and Republican presidential hopeful, Mike Huckabee, cut his senior staffer’s salaries to reallocate resources to the Iowa battlefield.

We’ve seen some slick, modern advertising out of 2016 Republican field so far, but Mike Huckabee decided to go in a different direction with his latest ad hitting the Obama Administration over its irresponsible Iran policy.

Huckabee’s ad is a reboot of a 1964 ad backing Lyndon B. Johnson in his reelection...

Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee all will be announcing that they are running for President.

Carson made his announcement Sunday, perhaps with a slip of the tongue. His official announcement is today via YouTube.

Mike Huckabee joined Jon Stewart on The Daily Show to chat about his new book, God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy. Huckabee recently quit Fox News, suggesting he will toss his hat into the Presidential arena.

The exchange between the two was… interesting.

Huckabee contends there’s a difference between the bubbles that encompass,...

Mike Huckabee was going to be the hammer used by anti-Rush Limbaugh forces both competitive and political to unseat Limbaugh once and for all.

During the height of the anti-Rush fever, I highlighted how Cumulus Media sought to leverage the anti-Limbaugh boycotts by holding Huckabee out as a viable conservative replacement.

Two days ago Mike Huckabee denied calling Mitt Romney dishonest because of the negative attacks run by Romney, and asked Newt to take down an ad featuring Huckabee calling Romney dishonest because Huckabee denied what was on the video even though it was on the video.

What is going on in the Republican Party?

Mike Huckabee claims that Newt is using a clip from Huckabee in 2008 out of context because Huckabee was not referring to Mitt Romney, but in fact Huckabee obviously was referring to Romney.

Here’s the video of Huckabee voicing his objection (the discussion starts...

Mitt Romney’s key debate line of late is that Newt resigned in disgrace over ethics charges. It’s even featured in the most recent Romney advertisement (not his SuperPAC) running in Florida.

I was wondering when someone would bring out the Mike Huckabee line from the 2008 campaign, when he was attacked by Romney much the way Romney attacked Newt in this election cycle.

Romney always starts it.  He did it in Iowa in December 2007 against Huckabee and McCain,  and in Iowa 2011...

Things have been ugly on the airwaves in Iowa, and the recipient of those ads is going to start giving some of the ugly back.

It’s unfortunate that it has come to this, but it fits a pattern which goes back to Iowa in the 2008 cycle. Different recipients, same attacker.

The attack dogs are out, and they’re not Democratic.

They are Republicans who “knew Reagan” and play the phony “you’re no Reagan” or “how dare you compare yourself to Reagan” or “how dare you put down Reagan,” or some variation on that theme, against Sarah Palin.

The latest is Ed Rollins (Palin, I knew Reagan....
