GOP Candidates Slam Huckabee on Sunday Talk Shows 

The Washington Post does a weekly roundup of the Sunday morning political talkshows. This week, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee was getting hit from all sides. Tennessee's Fred Thompson fired a salvo, and so did Mitt Romney.

From the Post: Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, surging in the polls for the GOP presidential nomination, faced criticism by two rivals yesterday.

Fred D. Thompson, a former senator from Tennessee, said, "Liberal is the only word that comes to mind, when he was governor."

On CBS's "Face the Nation," Thompson criticized Huckabee for his positions on illegal immigration, tax policy and Cuba, and for his belief that the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should be shut down.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney criticized Huckabee for a recent Foreign Affairs article in which he called the Bush administration's foreign policy "arrogant."

"Mike Huckabee owes the president an apology," Romney said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"I think he needs to read the article. It would really help if he would do that. Because if he did, he would see that there's no apology necessary to the president," Huckabee responded on CNN's "Late Edition." For more, see the Post's website.
