  •  What was Huckabee realistically expecting? (7+ / 0-)

    That's part of what I find crazy about this -- Baker's views on Israel are well known.  He and George H.W. took a much harder line with Israel than anything Obama has done at this point (e.g. not only harsh words, but suspending loan guarantees -- measures with some financial consequences).

    If Huckabee just wanted a guy who was credible with the Fox New audience to criticize the Obama administration's actions with respect to Israel he could have sought out the Cheneys, John Bolton, or any of other number of figures in the last Bush administration.  

    The Baker selection was kind of curious.
