ROMNEY CALLS ON HUCKABEE TO APOLOGIZE FOR BUSH SLAM

From the story: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney accused Mike Huckabee of insulting President Bush and called on him to apologize for criticizing Bush's foreign policy as "arrogant." Huckabee refused, saying he was not attacking the president personally but laying out a different vision for the US role in the world. (Boston Globe)

Meanwhile, Patrick Ruffini wrote it’s “Romney’s Race to Lose.” Topping the list of reasons: 1. The surging candidates (Huckabee and McCain) are flaky and/or can’t win. This empowers the institutional frontrunners, Rudy and Romney. And Rudy is in trouble. Huckabee has solved Romney’s expectations game in Iowa. A win for Romney out of the Hawkeye State translates to a big win and momentum. A narrow loss is within expectations. Only a double digit loss or third would significantly damage Romney. (Townhall)

And while Lieberman backs McCain... (ABC News) Bork backs Romney. (MittRomney.com)
