As noted early and picked up elsewhere Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom is going after Huckabee for his lack of “depth” on foreign policy. I asked him whether Romney was challenging his smarts or his experience. Fehrnstrom didn’t directly reply but offered this: “Unlike Mike Huckabee, Governor Romney doesn’t joke about foreign policy, and he doesn’t speak in Mother Goose rhymes about how we should conduct our foreign affairs. It’s far more serious business than trying to get kids on a playground to be nice to each other, which is what Mike Huckabee believes.” Meanwhile Team Thompson jumps into the fray, finding it ironic that Romney was accusing Huckabee of running from the GOP on foreign policy, beginning with this title on their email: “Mitt Romney Has Decided To Be The Arbiter Of What’s ‘Republican’ or Not, How Ironic…” They then proceed to remind us of all the “I was an Independent”/”I wasn’t a Ronald Reagan Conservative” quotes. Thompson generally has been focusing on Huckabee, looking to pry loose voters who may be disposed to Thompson as an alternative but perhaps the Romney down in the dumps talk has gotten Thompson thinking. Could he get close to Romney and be the real Iowa surprise?
