Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee slammed Sen. Ted Cruz as "self-absorbed" after Cruz did not explicitly endorse Donald Trump in his speech to the the Republican convention Wednesday.
Huckabee via Facebook:
"The question was whether Cruz would make his speech about HIS future or the future of the country," "That question was answered when Ted Cruz chose to not keep his word that he (along with me and every other GOP candidate) gave one year ago in that very arena where tonight he put his own ambitions above country."via TPM
"Trump trusted Ted and was rewarded with a betrayal, but the delegates in that arena booed Cruz off the stage and out of Cleveland," Huckabee said. "When a person is treated with generosity to give a speech, he should either respond with respect or graciously decline. And when a person loses, he should accept the will of the voters and then offer support to the victor of the primary to defeat the anti-gun, pro-abortion, incompetent, dishonest, and dishonorable nominee of the Democrat party."
"I didn’t see a statesman step forth for the country’s future," he concluded. "I saw a self-absorbed politician grab the microphone and try to line up his own future. Ted walked in tall and walked out small"
