Jim, I partially agree. I think the comments about Thompson’s record or lack thereof and the remarks about Romney’s position changes are totally within the proper bounds of political discussion and have written about both. (Whether going negative this early works for Huckabee is another question but we’re writing about him so maybe it does.) The Romney comments I see as a not so veiled dig at Mormonism and I just don’t think any candidate should have to defend his faith as Huckabee seems to be challenging Romney to do here:

Should it be the sole criteria? No, it shouldn’t. Is it a criterion? It always has been for me in that people have looked at me and said ‘do I want to support a guy who’s a Pastor?’ I mean I’ve had to deal with that my entire political life. So having been on the receiving end of it, I don’t see a big deal for it myself. I expect it to be an issue as people evaluate whether they want me to be President. And I’m perfectly prepared to defend my faith in front of anyone, anytime, anyplace and under any circumstance.”
