Reid Wilson tells the tale of two former presidential candidates. He juxtaposes the specter of what Romney has done for McCain since ending his presidential bid versus what Huckabee has done since ending his bid.

First Romney:

Romney has been the most active, appearing for McCain this week at a Lancaster, Pennsylvania Republican dinner, shepherding McCain around Utah for a major fundraiser and promising to hit the stump in the future. Romney has also said he will raise $15 million for McCain, as the Associated Press' Glen Johnson reports.
Compare that to Huckabee:

Huckabee, too, is staying active. He signed a contract with a Hollywood talent agency this week, and next week he will launch a new venture with a major speech, to which his website is counting down (four days, five hours, forty-one minutes and twenty five seconds from the time this post was written).
Is there a starker contrast between two people? Romney has dedicated his time towards a greater cause. Huckabee has used the occassion for self-promotion. Ideally the countdown on Huckabee's website would be the dwindling of his minutes of fame.

In this world we need fewer self-promoters and more people willing to work for a cause other than self. Thank you for the example Gov. Romney.

Self promotion and gimmickry.

I'm really happy for Huckabee that he was able to sign a contract with a Hollywood agency this week. Maybe he can get a spot in a good dog food commercial. You know, as the dog.

Huckabeen is a joke! The sooner we don't have to see his face again, the better! Good riddance to the selfish and egotistical Dorkabee!

Nobody ever told you, never pick up a rattlesnake, it doesn't want to be pet. Why do the romney's folks like to poke huckabee, just ignore him and leave him alone. Fact is when romney runs for president someday, he will need huckabee supporters to eventually be on his side, so i would advise to let the facts speak for themselves and move on without calling out.

I'm just glad to know his countdown has nothing to do with the VP spot. *wipes brow*

All you had to do was look at Huck's time in Ark. to know it was always about him.Particuarly being a gift-a-holic. It's a shame that so many people fell for his religious stances when they were all phony all along and a con game.He handed McCain the nom and now everyone has buyers remorse.The most appalling part of Huck though was/is his bias against Mormons.Wouldn't surprise me at all if his supporters were behind all the robo calls condeming Romney's religion.

There is nothing wrong with Romney supporters bashing Mike Up-Chuck-abee. In fact, there would be nothing wrong with everybody else joining in as well.

As for the valid bashing of Up-Chuck-abee by Romney supporters somehow hurting Mitt as an Anonymous poster above posits, I disagree.

Mitt has always been a class act. He has refused to make personal attacks or involve himself in name-calling. Mitt has also refused to play the part of a victim or try to get sympathy. This is even though Up-Chuck-abee has acted like a child throughout. Up-Chuck-abee is STILL attacking Romney - months after Romney dropped out of the race. Up-Chuck-abee is such a baby! He can't get over Romney's wealth and among the many personal insults that he tried to pin on Romney, Up-Chuck-abee tried to compare Romney to a grade school tattletale when Mitt brought up the fact that Up-Chuck-abee wanted to give instate tuition breaks to illegal aliens. How does an adult respond to such ridiculous assertions?

It must have been a very strange fight for Romney. Romney must have felt sorry for Up-Chuck-abee throughout. It would have been like arguing with a child with down syndrome.

But I don't feel sorry for Up-Chuck-abee. I don't feel like just because he appears to have some sort of developmental disability that I should feel bad enough for him to give him the benefit of the doubt when the fate the of entire Free World is at stake.

His website is probably just getting ready to brag about some new nationally syndicated radio show that he will have to compete against Rush Limbaugh - who Huckabee must hate - since Rush saw right through Up-Chuck-abee as a total phony.
