Mike Huckabee this week blasted what he termed the elite country club attitude favored by former presidential advisor Karl Rove and others who quickly wrote-off Delaware Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell.
"I was very disappointed in some, particularly Karl and others, who were so dismissive of Christine O'Donnell," Huckabee said, according to a Politico report
"Unfortunately, there is an elitism within the Republican establishment," the former Arkansas governor added. "And it's one of the reasons the Republicans have not been able to solidify not only the tea party movement but solidify conservatives across America."
"It's about, again, to be blunt, the kind of country club attitude that we're not sure there are certain people we really want as members of the club and we're not going to vote them in. And we don't mind showing up to events to put up signs and making phone calls and going door to door making those pesky little trips that we don't like to do, but we really don't want them dining with us in the main dining room," he concluded.
