    Mike is the master at flip flopping.
    Remeber how he impressed many with his stance on cutting taxes and bragging how he cut taxes in Arkansas? This is Mike doing the Huckaflop in the Arkansas Senate.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pLOC4krZI4

    I like the way the author compares Huck to Clinton.

    Does this count as a Huckaflop?

    I think Huckabee was right about the theology of Mormonism, but then he took the comment back. Which begs the question, why say it to begin with? And I do think it was inappropriate for Huckabee to bash Romney's faith while Huckabee's followers complain of a reverse religious test.

    A National Review blog makes this Mormon comment more interesting. Huckabee tried to get a pass on this issue by saying he simply didn't understand Mormonism as well as a New York Times reporter who Huckabee asked the infamous question of. (As if he was wanting the NYT guy to educate him on the issue.) National Review's Jim Geraghty said, "I'm going to call horsepuckey on Huckabee's claim that a New York Times reporter knew more about comparitive religions than guy with a theology degree."

    To which, Joe Carter, the director of research for Mike Huckabee, responded:

    To which, National Review hammered the Huckabee campaign with Huckabee's own words:

    Looks like the mother of all Huckaflops. Huck slammed Mormonism, then tried to pretend he couldn't have done so because he doesn't understand Mormonism, his campaign defends his ignorace of Mormonism by saying he doesn't have a theology degree, only to be reminded that he does have a theology degree. Wow.

    Despite the attacks out of the desperation of the political enemies, Huckabee still have been surging in the polls. Actually, the more they attacks the more the voters have more sympathy.

    His latest polls just keeps on surging. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Latest Rasmussen National polls:

    1)Huckabee 23%
    2)Giuliani 20%
    3)Romney 14%
    4)Thompson 10%
    5)McCain 8%

    In all fairness to Huck, how can you expect him to know what Mormonism teaches when the averages Mormon doesn't even know what Mormonism teaches?

    Huckabee already apologized to Romney about his comment.
