Fred Thompson Challenges Huckabee on Iran

by Sean Hackbarth

Fred Thompson pushes back at Mike Huckabee’s lackadaisical attitude to foreign policy:

“Not only is Iran the major long-term threat to our country, the nuclear program is the most important part of the Iran consideration. For a presidential candidate not to know that and not to keep up with that is very surprising,” said Thompson.

“These are the kinds of things I’ve been talking about all of my life. Now, if the American people have other priorities, if they want someone who smiles a lot more than I do, or someone who is a better quipster than I am, who has no experience in these areas, that’s for the American people to decide.”

It was good enough for OpiniPundit to declare it the Quote of the Week.

Huckabee’s approach has been to make jokes. That’s fine for a media personality, but not good for a Presidential hopeful.
