A few emails have come in urging us to throw support behind Mike Huckabee.

As for myself, I have already stated that I think some strategic voting might be appropriate here. That is only if it is clear in your states that McCain is going to beat Huckabee. If it isn't clear, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, vote for McCain to make sure Huckabee doesn't get anymore support.

We can all muse about what order of candidates we would have prefered. Mine ran like this:

Mitt Romney
Fred Thompson
Rudy Giuliani
John McCain
Duncan Hunter
Tom Tancredo
Tommy Thompson
Ron Paul
Any Other Republican Candidate
Several Democratic Candidates
Mike Huckabee

Aside from being pro-life, Huckabee did not govern conservatively in Arkansas. Now, I don't want to open a new round of accusations about Mike Huckabee's record versus Mitt Romney's. I just want to point out that there are very good reasons to support McCain over Huckabee. Especially on fiscal conservatism and spending.

Finally, I know I am part of not a small group of people who felt that Mike Huckabee misused the name of Christ to promote his own political ambitions. I fundamentally disagree with his approach to the campaign and believe he cheapened holy and sacred truths by making Christianity a tag line.

I agree.As much as I dislike McCain,the Huckster is even worse.Staying in this race just shows why Huck puts his own narcissism before the party. He's making McCain look weak by staying in.He's the worse kind of hack self serving politician exploiting the life issue to the max.It's funny how the media isn't critsizing Huck for staying in,when we all know they would have been attacking Romney for doing the same. It's really a hollow victory for the media drumming Romney out of the race. No a large portion of the republican base could care less about the election and their ratings will suffer.I'm still as sore about the horrific media bias in this race as I am about the backroom deals McCain swung to get endorsements.It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Charlie Crist would wind up with the VP spot.



Now, I truly want to gag... I truly can't stand Mr. Opportunist Huckabee. If Huckabee (if ever) wins the nomination, watch out for a conservative revolt coming your way! He is truly a slimeball with a forked tongue... "Oh, didn't you know that the Mormons believe that Jesus and the Devil are brothers?" *retching* What a sleazeball! Never, never, never vote for Huckabee!

(However, I do understand your strategy)

There is one thing you must consider with Huckabee's governorship. That state was in shambles. The education system was broken and infrastructure was a mess. He really had no choice but to raise taxes. They had to completely overhaul school systems everywhere as well as fix roads and bridges that were desperately in need of repair. That's expensive. Now Arkansas is MUCH better in education.



My list would go something like this:

1) Mitt Romney
2) Duncan Hunter
3) Fred Thompson
4) Tom Tancredo
5) John McCain
6) Ron Paul

12) Rudy Giuliani

299) Hillary Clinton
300) Barrack Obama

30 Billion) Darth Vader
30,000,000,001) Cobra Commander


120 Billion) Adolf Hitler
120,000,000,001) Lucifer
120,000,000,002) Mike Up-Chuck-abee



Already voted for Mitt in MA. There's no way I'd vote for Huckabee - I happen to agree with Thomas Jefferson about the separation of church and state. I'm still upset by the "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the Devil are brothers?" bit, too.

Someone posted elsewhere that it's mathematically impossible for Huckabee to win - can anyone confirm this?

Huckabee only needs to get enough delegates to prevent McCain from getting the nomination. Then it becomes a brokered convention. Since the Dems are heading for a brokered convention it is not going to matter that the GOP does as well.

If someone who was clueless about Mormonism asked "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the Devil are bothers?" or the all time favorite Mormon question "Don't Mormon men have a bunch of wives?"- doesn't that mean the didn't know the answer and were legitimately asking a valid question. He didn't pull that questions out of his hiney- it had to based on some misconception that is prevalent about Mormons.



My ancestors were driven and killed by the likes of Huckabee. As far as I'm concerned, having him in office would adversely affect anyone not of his particular affiliation. If there was ever a wolf in sheep's clothing, it is Huckabee. When you add to this his extreme inability to govern, you have poor candidate. If it meant keeping him from being the nominee I would walk two miles in driving snow to vote against the man.

Two responses from the comments:

(1) In addition to fiscal problems with Huckabee, his pardoning and commuting sentences of convicted criminals is absolutely inexcusable.

(2) You cannot possibly pretend that Huckabee was asking an innocent question when he referenced Mormon beliefs. No one out there really thinks that their pastor wouldn't know the questions to what Mormons believe do they? I would point out that Huckabee's question/statement isn't really want offended me.



I would really like to hear what "holy and sacred truths" Huckabee violated, sincerely, I would.

NJ is a McCain State through and through, but my vote went to MH.

When I say "sacred and holy truths" I am referring to everything sacred and holy about Jesus Christ. I find using Christ's name for political purposes to be highly offensive. Welcome Emporer Huck Constantine. As if he has the special endorsement of God.
