...Marc Ambinder says that Huck takes a swing and whiffs:

To the roar of the crowd, ex-AR Gov. Mike Huckabee stepped up to the plate yesterday. A fast ball. Swing and a miss. Strike one.

Huckabee was asked to respond to the unflattering video of him "begging," in the words of the Romney campaign, the state legislature to raise taxes in 2003.

On Fox News, Huckabee said that he was following the will of the state Supreme Court, who had ordered the state government to pay more for education.

But the video clip in question showed Huckabee referring to a regular budget plan and had nothing to do with the state supreme court decision.

So -- about half of Huckabee's press coverage was positive -- Huckmentum -- and half of it was negative -- particularly the Fox News-Drudge-conservative blog half.

This wasn't an underhand pitch -- it wasn't a question about his weight loss, his guitar or his sense of humor -- it was about an issue that has the potential to trip him up.

Welcome to the big show.

If Iowa goes Huck, as they now seem to be tending, they are all a bunch of fools - unless, they actually know what they are doing. They are bleeding Romeny and giving the election to Rudy.



A vote for Huck is a vote for Rudy. If Huck takes Iowa, the Mitt strategy is in shambles. I hope team Mitt has a strategy to pull off a win here. Will Mitt's organization and GOTV effort on Jan. 3 be enough to win the caucuses?



Does Hucakbee's comment about illegals mowing Romney's laws count as strike two?



The MSM promotes Huck cuz they want a long bloody battle - makes for good headlines. Much of the northeast pundit class promotes Huck cuz they like Rudy. Irritates me, cuz I think these tactics are deceitful and dishonest as they know full well Huck has zero chance of defeating either Rudy or HRC
