Huckabee Slams Mitt as Conservative Pretender

There's a new political food fight taking place this week, only this time it's not Hillary and Obama, but Mike Huckabee taking on Mitt Romney.

According to The Huck, Romney's only a pretender to the conservative throne. Here's the money quote:

Mitt's just trying to be a conservative, because he's really having to overcome a lifetime of being pro-abortion, of being pro-same-sex marriage, about being against Second Amendment and for gun control, about being for $700 million in increases in taxes, and then saying he didn't ever raise taxes, but he called them fees.

Just guessing here, but we suspect these positions are a little out of bounds for Oklahoma's Republican stalwarts. So it will be very interesting to see how well the Mittman does next Tuesday when Sooner state voters go to the polls.

If Mitt can overcome his previous pro-abortion, pro-same-sex marriage, pro-gun control views, he can probably overcome his pro-Mormon views as well to become the ideal conservative GOP candidate.
