Again confusing the timeline (the NIE was out for a full day and a half before he was asked about it), he told the Quad-City Times’ Dan Gearino: “Maybe I should’ve said, ‘Have you read the report?’ President Bush didn’t read it for four years; I don’t know why I should read it in four hours.”
Acutally, the Note authosr miss the bigger point: The report came out this year, not four years ago.
That said, they did catch something Lowry missed:
More from foreign policy in Huckworld: “Shortly before Mike Huckabee emerged as a leading presidential contender, he delivered a littlenoticed foreign policy speech in which he urged consideration of restoring diplomatic relations with Iran,” Michael Kranish reports in The Boston Globe.
“It is a view that now stands as a significant difference from some of his GOP opponents at a time when Huckabee’s foreign policy credentials have become a central issue in the campaign.”
I feel a “Ye-e-a-a-a-a-h!” coming on.
