In the post-9/11 Republican Party, there is one line that us conservatives don't cross. We do not critique Bush's handling of foreign policy and national security issues from a leftist perspective. Those who do, like Lincoln Chafee, Chuck Hagel, and Walter Jones, get "primaried".

After improvements in Iraq finally begin to take place and victory appears to be attainable, Mike Huckabee, in his latest Foreign Affairs piece, attacked President Bush's handling of the War on Terror from the left.

Even Ron Paul has not crossed that line.

At least when Ron Paul says everything about blowback, and leaving Iraq, it is a far-right wing critique based upon the principles of nonintervention and that America should not be spending money abroad.

The following statements of Hucakebee are all attacks on President Bush from a left-wing perspective:

1. President Bush has an arrogant foreign policy.

2. President Bush has a "bunker mentality".

3. Guantanamo Bay needs to be closed because other people don't like it.

4. Bush is on a path "to war with Iran".

5. We need to negotiate with Iran.

6. Our relationship with Iran is strained, much like "friends who don't talk for some time".

7. A lack of opportunity is the root cause of terrorism.

8. "Much like a top high school student, if it [the US] is modest about its abilities and achievements, if it is generous in helping others, it is loved.”

Wrong party Huck.

I'll forgive Republican heresy on any other issue, but not this one.

It's not so much the RINO party. It's more like the sticky string party, with different people pulling it in different directions.

Thompson looks good to me too. At least he will appeal to both haves of the Republican divide.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighhhhhhhhhht.

Osama's memo to Al-Q troops:

Soldiers - The US has abandoned all military action against us and is instead being nice. Please find the enclosed fruit basket along with several coupons for 25% off your next Bath & Body Works purchase.

Refrain from all activities, with the exception of releasing hostages in case we are not included in the "Jelly of the Month" club.

I'll admit it; at first I thought Huckabee was a good man and might make a good president.

Then when he started attacking Bush and acting more like a GOP Jimmy Carter, my respect for him just vanished. Probably this action will end up costing him the primaries.
