There has been a great deal of fussing and fuming about Mike Huckabee remaining in the race for the presidency. As he says repeatedly, this is an ELECTION, not a coronation … why shouldn’t the rest of the country have a choice? But an article in the Los Angeles Times made me wonder if this is really news to the pundits and analysts:
In an interview with a San Antonio radio station this morning, Mike Huckabee essentially confirmed the suspicions of many analysts. He’s hanging on in the Republican presidential nomination fight hoping to keep John McCain from winning enough delegates to get the nomination on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention in September.
Are they really that dense that this is news to them? Of course the Huckabee campaign is trying to keep McCain from getting 1191 delegates and take it to the convention … by remaining in the race, Gov. Huckabee gives conservatives in the states that have not yet voted the opportunity to vote for a true conservative, and to stop McCain from getting the nomination.
In other items, I am disgusted that the democrats will be having another debate before the March 4th primaries, while the media refuses to hold a republican debate (under great pressure from the McCain campaign no doubt). If they held a republican debate, it would let too many people know the truth: that John McCain has not been crowned the nominee and that Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul are actually still running for the GOP nomination! The media of course is (mostly) very liberal, so it serves them well to have McCain as the nominee, because then they don’t have to worry about having a pesky conservative in the Oval Office. The media doesn’t want Huckabee in the race, much less the nomination, because he is the truly a threat to the liberal agenda, and the only one who could beat the dems.
There is hope, but only if conservatives in states such as Texas and Ohio will stand up and stand against the media and John McCain. You must go to the polls on March 4th and take everyone you know …. you must vote for Mike Huckabee – for this country, for your family, for all who believe in the sanctity of all human life. We can do this, but we must stand with Mike Huckabee and not be beaten down by McCain and the media liberals.
