Dole Chastises Huckabee

For a so-called conservative, Mike Huckabee has offended many influential Republicans. Here's Senator Bob Dole (ret.) via the Weekly Standard:

"As a veteran, I worry about the future security of the good people of Iowa and all other Americans. We are engaged in a global war on terror which will not disappear because you imply a willingness, without any preconditions apparently, to sit down with the enemy. Sure we can all find fault with President Bush and his Administration on policy matters and phases of the Iraq policy. I doubt however Iowans will applaud second guessing more than five years after the agony of 9-11..."

And the brow-raising climax:

"... I am troubled about some of the statements attributed to you in the Foreign Affairs article."

First Huck went after Rush Limbaugh, possibly the most influential talk radio host ever. Now he's raised the ire of a conservative icon. He just might get elected President, but not by any from the Right!
