Romney Goes Negativer

Ambinder talks to Mitt Romney who has some tough words for Mike Huckabee beyond the immigration issue:



Given the widespread hostility to Huckabee among conservative elites and institutions, it seems to me that there's a decent possibility there's still enough time between now and the Iowa caucuses that they can beat his insurgency back. The fact that Huckabee hasn't made a real effort to defend his brand of big government conservatism on the merits leaves his very vulnerable to allegations of being a tax hiker, etc.
