    The Huck-a-Bust is Coming

    It seems ALIPAC isn't the only one against Huck:

    The Huck-a-Bust is Coming (Updated and Expanded version)

    posted by Jeff Fuller | 9:19 PM |

    Huckabee and his supporters always seem to point out that Romney's attacking him. The already nascent Huck-a-bust will undoubtedly be blamed on Romney by Huck and his supporters. However . . . I don't think that Romney had anything to do with the fact that essentially every conservative with a microphone or blog has been railing against Huckabee for the last few weeks. Need some evidence?:

    Rush Limbaugh
    Condoleezza Rice
    Michelle Malkin
    Ann Coulter (new one here)
    Phyllis Schlafly
    Bob Novak (others here & here)
    Peggy Noonan
    Charles Krauthammer
    Bob Dole
    Sean Hannity (not frontal attacks, but plenty of concerns about him being the nominee)
    Laura Ingraham
    Fred Barnes
    Joseph Farah (Founder/CEO/Editor of World Net Daily also expresses concern for homeschoolers who support Huck)
    Thomas Sowell
    George Will (these comments too on a TV news show)
    Michael Reagan
    Glenn Beck (semi "reconciliation" he's still not too impressed)
    Donald Lambro
    David Limbaugh (another here)
    Michael Barone
    Mark Steyn
    Kim Strassell
    Matt Drudge (it's obvious that he has a bone to pick with Huckabee given his coverage of late)
    Pat Buchanan
    Jonah Goldberg
    John Fund (an interesting video here)
    Jim Geraghty
    Kathryn Jean Lopez (another here)
    Tony Blankley
    Howie Carr
    James Taranto (here too, don't miss, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 of "No Truck with Huck")
    Clarence Page
    Dean Barnett
    Rich Karlgaard
    Rich Lowry (this one too)
    Mark Hemingway
    Austin Hill
    Quin Hillyer
    Tom Bevan
    Jack Kelly
    Deroy Murdock
    David Frum
    Jonathan Alder
    John Hinderaker
    Bruce Bartlett
    Victor Davis Hanson
    Johnathan Tobin
    Hugh Hewitt (and another)
    Walter E. Williams
    David Reinhard
    Frank Gaffney (who Huck claimed was one of his Foreign Policy advisors)
    Lori Byrd
    JC Hawkins
    Peter Wehner
    Douglas MacKinnon
    Paul Mirengoff ( here and here too)
    Jerome Corsi
    The Editors of National Review (Oh yeah, this one too . . . and both were written BEFORE the NR endorsed Romney)
    The Club for Growth
    The Cato Institute (Huckabee's F grade for fiscal issue . . . 46th out of the 50 governors ranked. Yes, that's worse than the vast majority of Democratic governors!--PDF here)
    Mitt Romney
    Ron Paul
    Fred Thompson
    Rudy Giuliani

    You can just hear and feel all of these conservative/GOP icons pleading with the voters: "PLEASE DON'T MAKE US TRY TO DEFEND THIS GUY!!!" (should he be the nominee).

    Conclusion: Huckabee's not a full-spectrum conservative and the GOP would be unwise to give him the nomination. Romney has had to point out the un-conservative spots in Huck's record because the MSM/DNC axis sure hasn't been (they want him as the GOP nominee) and because McCain and Rudy want Huck to win Iowa to stifle Romney's path to the nomination. However, Romney is hardly alone in pointing out Huckabee's worrisome record.

    Update: Welcome Townhall and Hugh Hewitt readers (he linked to this post and called it "An Impressive List . . . of people you do not want against you") Thanks Hugh!! Please feel free to explore the links above and leave your comments here. Also, Quin Hillyer's recent article "The Republican Party: All Hucked Up" contains a list that is interestingly familiar to mine.

    Well, let's hope that Iowa citizens heard/read from this list before they vote----because he still has a VERY good chance of winning in Iowa.

    And, if he wins Iowa----who knows if the momentum for this idiot will keep building.

    More on the Huckster:

    When they debated economic issues in Dearborn, Mich., most of the Republican presidential candidates talked about how good the economic statistics look. Mike Huckabee was the candidate who offered sympathy for the public’s anxieties. So it has been throughout the campaign. Huckabee, more than the other Republican candidates, understands that even in a time of economic growth Americans are worried about their health care, their wages, and their country’s future.

    He seems to understand his party’s strategic options better than his Republican rivals, too. Since conservative positions on controversial moral issues have helped Republicans, there is no reason to abandon them. But waxing nostalgic, as though the country were ripe for a reprise of the Gingrich revolution, is not a path to a Republican revival either. What Republicans need is a new domestic policy to address today’s concerns.

    Unfortunately, what Huckabee offers by way of solutions is a mixture of populism and big-government liberalism; the common theme of his policies is that they are half-baked. If an ill-considered slogan can be used to justify a policy, he is for it. He is a protectionist, because we need to have “fair trade.

    Locking this thread is a Dupe of

    http://www.alipac.us/ftopicp-567070.html#567070

    However, although the other is a later post, it does have more cumulative activity. Accordingly, I am locking this thread and will defer posting to the later [Dupe] thread.

    Thanks.
