    If you are the eventual Democratic nominee for President in 2008, who would you like to run against? Answer: A Republican you can beat.
    Chris Matthews, of MSNBC, recently asked, “Why is the liberal media giving Huckabee a free ride?” Could the answer be as obvious as the liberal media thinks that they have war-gamed this election better than conservatives? Did they look at the Republican field and try to ascertain who would be the weakest “non-fringe” candidate?...

    Amazing to think he would have us believe he supports school choice while being endorsed by the single greatest threat to academic liberty.

    Or it could be a trick. They know that if he gets the support of the NEA then conservatives will take that as you have said. So they endorse him in order to destroy the conservative support.:laugh:

    Huckabee said he was for school choice. I don't understand why you don't believe him. Ron Paul has said things years ago and recently changed his mind. So has Thompson.

    Huckabee is saying all the right things at this point if you are looking for a conservative. So I guess it all comes down to whether you trust him or not. I believe he is sincere and has fine tuned some of his policies and potential administration goals. If elected, he would have a constinctuancy to hold him to his promises.

    Usually politicians say very little or are very vague so that they can't be pinned down or won't alienate people. Yet Huckabee has said things that are actually contraversial and have religiphobes up in arms. He's talking like a conservative and the media has not been kind.

    I continue to be amazed by people who ignore the fact that Huckabee is telling us what he would do as President. Ronald Reagan was actually prochoice before running for President but he changed his mind and ran as a pro-life candidate. As President, he was a pro-life candidate. Why would Huckabee not do what he says he'll do? I believe he will and if he does, he's the best candidate on the list. However, I think that Thompson and Hunter are also very good candidates. The only issue I disagree with Ron Paul on is his view on the war on terror. Giuliani might as well be a Democrat and is a bad candidate because he's told us what he believes and I believe him.

    But again, I can say that there are candidates that I disagree with on some issues, but they are still overall good candidates (Huckabee, Thomspon, Hunter, Paul, McCain). There's not going to be a perfect one unless Jesus comes back to earth and runs.

    Ronnie is not a conservative. Conservatives do not want to allow states to slaughter children. Ronnie does. Conservatives do not participate in irresponsible rhetoric that goes international and gives aid and comfort to the enemy. Ronnie does.

    Ronnie is not a conservative.

    Who you trying to convince here? Us or you? ;)

    Btw, I wish Tancredo or Hunter were the nominee so I'd have the chance to say I was voting for the same candidate you were. How odd would that be!

    Yes, Timmy is definitely a candidate for anger management classes.

    I've never seen someone get so riled up about a candidate that has no chance of winning even the GOP presidential nomination.

    No, Ron Paul is not a conservative, Timmy. And I am very glad that he is not. He is a libertarian. As am I.

    1. Which should we trust - a person's actions or what that person says he advocates today?

    2. Huckabee is a conservative on social issues. On economic issues he is a liberal. On foreign policy we don't know what he is since he has no foreign policy experience, having not even served in the Congress where they deal with foreign policy issues.

    Looks like Huckabee courted the endorsement of the public school union.
