His campaign forwards on this statement from Gov. Huckabee: “There’s definitely momentum as people are paying attention to my message. We are seeing first hand why it’s crucial for the Iowa caucuses to be first — Iowa Republicans are looking beyond my campaign budget and are relating to my values and where I stand on important issues.” That would be the “You can’t buy Iowa” dig.
Professor Steffen Schmidt of Iowa State University: “You can go back 4 months and I said Huckabee fits the GOP profile best. He is very likeable, a minister, a man whom people admire from his self discipline in losing weight, a governor, a conservative, funny, self deprecating, plays rock n’ roll music. So why is everyone surprised?” Professor Schmidt also notes that while we are familiar with the flip flop charge Iowans have not yet been subjected to ads emphasizing Romney’s position changes on various issues. And Thompson? “You cannot play in the Super Bowl by skipping half the games in the season.”
