Mike Makes Mitt Mistake

Mike Huckabee has not gotten much love from conservative talk radio hosts, who instead have leaned toward GOP rival Mitt Romney. And he seemed to offer up a theory as to why, during a recent press conference:

Huckabee: “Some suggest that the fact that Bain Capital owns a major stake in Clear Channel… maybe there’s a correlation.”

Well, maybe Governor, but there’s one tiny problem: Bain doesn’t actually own Clear Channel yet. It agreed to buy the company over 14 months ago, but the deal is still in process. Make that a tenuous process, judging by shareholder jitters of late…

Huckebee’s presser also included another jab at how Romney’s business accument might be off, given how much money he’s spent for diminishing returns. Here’s a link to the video.
