So, Huckabee’s Out. Now What?

March 5, 2008

In a sad moment for American political history, Mike Huckabee has bowed out.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee bowed to “the inevitable” and dropped out of the Republican presidential race Tuesday night after an improbable run for a politician little known beyond his home state a year ago.

Huckabee announced he was giving up his bid for the White House after John McCain swept Tuesday’s contests in Texas, Ohio, Vermont and Rhode Island, giving the Arizona senator the delegates needed to claim the party’s nomination in September.

“It’s been a heckuva run,” he said.

Huckabee urged his supporters to back McCain in November and said he has no “Plan B” for his political career.

The last true Republican has left the race. The GOP nominee will now be a RINO who opposes free speech and embraces bigoted Catholic-bashers. The RINOs have won the Party, and I strongly urge all Christians to leave the building.

In a way, this is a positive development. Huckabee was the last obstacle to the Brownback write-in campaign. My faith is too strong to allow me to believe that God hates America this much. As far as I can tell, He wants to test our resolve and our piety. We have a clear choice this November: vote for a Satanist Communist Islamist (be it Billary or Hussein Osama), vote for a Socialist RINO with Know-Nothing 19th-century Nativist leanings (McCain), or write-in a candidate. That candidate will be Brownback, and his victory will shake this hypocritical Babylon to its foundations. God has not yet forsaken His faithful. That is a promise, America. That is a promise.

Go, and pray for what comes. We face a challenging time of darkness before the light shall again shine down upon us.

Vote for America! Vote for Brownback!


Paul Weyrich Endorses Huck

February 11, 2008

Paul WeyrichAs folks continue to count Huck out, despite his strong performance over the weekend and his subsequent rise in Virginia primary polls, the influential endorsements keep coming in.  The big name Republicans who are dissatisfied with moderate “maverick” John McCain are turning to the conservative alternative: Mike Huckabee.

Mike Huckabee received the endorsement of longtime conservative activist Paul Weyrich, a former Romney supporter who called him this morning with the news.

And here’s how the man from Hope reacted:

“He called me first of all and initiated the conversation and indicated to me that he felt like I was the one guy that was left that was a true conservative that really believed things that mattered to a lot of conservatives and it involved everything from strong national defense to immigration to tax policy, the life question. There were many different reasons, and, you know, so obviously, this is good news for me. I appreciate it,” Huckabee said.

This is good news that the media would like to downplay, as usual.

Asked how beneficial the endorsement would be since it hadn’t helped Romney, Huckabee shrugged, “Well, but a lot of things didn’t help Mitt Romney, including $100 million.”

Another great comeback.  Keep fighting onwards, Mike!  You’ve got us all behind you.

The Dobson Endorsement

February 7, 2008

Dr. James DobsonThis is incredibly good news, although, as with Romney dropping out earlier today, Mike Huckabee could have really used this earlier.  Like before Super Tuesday, perhaps?  Still, it’s great that Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family has decided to make vocal his support for the only conservative remaining in the race for the Republican nomination for President.

James Dobson, one of the nation’s most prominent evangelical Christian leaders, is about to endorse former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, The Associated Press has learned.

Dobson, founder of Colorado Springs, Colo.-based Focus on the Family, talked to the GOP presidential hopeful Thursday and later was to release a statement explaining his choice, said Gary Schneeberger, a spokesman for Dobson.

If only Dr. Dobson had added his voice to Mike’s earlier, we would be looking at a much different race.  Still, after careful and prayerful consideration, James Dobson could remain silent no longer.

Until now, Dobson had never endorsed a GOP presidential hopeful during the primary campaign. But he ruled out front-runner John McCain in a blistering commentary on Super Tuesday, and on Thursday the fight for the GOP nomination narrowed to a two-man race between McCain and Huckabee, who is far behind in the delegate count but pledged to fight on.

McCain was never under consideration, naturally and understandably.

Dobson released a statement Tuesday that criticized McCain for his support of embryonic stem cell research, his opposition to a federal anti-gay marriage amendment and for his temper and use of foul language.

He said if McCain were the nominee, he would not cast a ballot for president for the first time in his life.

Another great endorsement for Mike Huckabee.  The race isn’t over yet.  Have hope.  Pray.  And support Mike Huckabee, before it’s too late.

Question for the Liberals…

February 1, 2008

You people would vote for an Atheist President, right?  Well, how about a Scientologist candidate, if you otherwise agreed with him on the issues?

 I want to know exactly what level of stupid I’m dealing with, here.  I think Scientology is even worse than Atheism, but I’m curious if you degenerate agree or not.

Free Republic’s Jim Robinson Endorses Huckabee

January 31, 2008

Jim RobinsonThis is an interesting turn of events. Free Republic founder Jim Robinson has long been a supporter of Fred Thompson and also admired (as do we all) Duncan Hunter. But both candidates have dropped out of the 2008 race. With McCain, Romney and Huckabee the only Republicans of note left standing, what’s a conservative to do?

Why, make the right decision of course! Jim lists seven compelling reasons to support Mike Huckabee. You can find out more over at my own blog, Blogs 4 Conservatives. I’m quite sure Huckabee supporters will be interested and psyched up about this bit of news.

Duncan Hunter Gets It

January 23, 2008

Duncan HunterDuncan Hunter, after thinking carefully about the available choices, has chosen to endorse the best candidate in the running. Duncan Hunter has wisely endorsed Mike Huckabee. And when Hunter talks, people listen. Are you listening?

California Rep. Duncan Hunter, a former presidential candidate, announced Wednesday he is endorsing Mike Huckabee’s White House bid.

Huckabee is clearly a great person and a principled candidate. But most of all, it’s the issues, stupid!

“I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail,” Hunter said in a statement. “Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China’s emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America’s industrial base.”

But wait, there’s more!

“Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee’s candidacy that compels my endorsement,” he added.

Huckabee is the best man in the race, clearly. Duncan is a great judge of character.

“Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity. I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed. The other Republican candidates have many strengths and I wish them all well.”

Hunter spoke out on the important issues and didn’t run a dirty campaign. It’s too bad his campaign never really took off. Perhaps because he was about substance over style.

Mike Huckabee is about both. He’s a great speaker, he seems like a human being more than a politician, and is informed and thoughtful on the issues.

That’s why Hunter declared, in essence, “I like Mike!” We do too. Welcome aboard the Huckabee bandwagon, Duncan! You’ll make a great Secretary of Defense.
