What’s Worse: Not Knowing About The NIE, Or Not Knowing That The Lawn Care Company Hires Illegals After It Promised It Would Not?

Email Email Print

Politico’s Jonathan Martin reports on a very disturbing conversation with Mike Huckabee:

Huckabee not aware of NIE report on Iran

My colleague David Paul Kuhn attended an on-the-record dinner with Mike Huckabee and a group of reporters tonight in Des Moines.

The transcript speaks for itself:

Kuhn: I don’t know to what extent you have been briefed or been able to take a look at the NIE report that came out yesterday …
Huckabee: I’m sorry?

Kuhn: The NIE report, the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran. Have you been briefed or been able to take a look at it –

Huckabee: No.

Kuhn: Have you heard of the finding?

Huckabee: No.

Read the whole thing.

This is a pretty astonishing admission of cluelessness on the part of Governor Huckabee.  And it places the Romney gardener story in its proper context.

My concern about the Huckabee pop is that it is hard to imagine the former Arkansas governor winning the November vote.  I can see election night with a sea of blue states with the deep South voting Huck.  The MSM knows this and is relentlessly boosting Huck in order to fell Romney. The Globe’s obsession with the leaves on Romney’s lawn underscores how agenda journalists of the left view this race:  Take out Romney, bleed Rudy, nominate Huckabee, elect Hillary.
