Decisions... Decisions....

Fred Thompson has withdrawn from the race. So has Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo. So now what is a conservative to do? The other candidates are so very flawed. Huckabee has never met a budget he didn't like, and he also has not been very enthusiastic about doing anything useful about illegal immigration. McCain is an open borders moron. Romney has more flip-flops than Payless Shoes. Giulliani is as liberal as Joe Lieberman. And of course there is Ron Paul. God what an idiot. How is that man able to walk and chew gum at the same time with that case of hydrocephaly he must have?

I'm thinking that Huckabee might be the best of what is left, but that really is not saying a whole lot. He may be a spendthrift, but he is at least conservative on most things. We DO have to keep in mind that there are at least two supreme court positions coming open soon. Therefore we need to make sure that the guy doing the picking for the replacements is a conservative and will select conservative judges to fill those positions. We also have to try to preserve what little is left of this country while we try to get a handle on the illegal immigration problem. I don't really trust Huckabee, but I think that the American people can "Keep up the Skeer" on him long enough to keep him moving in the right direction.

If anyone has a good argument for any of the others (except Ron Paul, you nutcases might as well save your breath.) I'm open to persuasion (kinda).

When I first listened to Huckabee, I liked him too, but as this moronic, depressing political pandering goes on and on and on ad infinitim, I'm getting sick and tired of the whole lot of 'em. They're all a pack of whores selling their souls for votes.

It's disgusting!

Huckabee is going broke. I don't think it looks to good for him either. So, it will be Mitt or McCain. I cannot tell you how disturbed I am by having only these two men to choose from. In this country, there aren't any other men who could have run, to suit the party platform?

Amen to that AW. I think you were the one that said something to the effect "Of all the millions of constitutionally elgible people in this country you have to ask yourself: Is this IT? Is this the best we can come up with?"

That pretty much nails it.

I like and respect Sen. McCain. However, until Al Gore announces his intention to run, I am pulling for Hillary but would be delighted with either Obama or Edwards.

Glen, if it's any comfort to you, I think you could vote for McCain and get the same results as if you voted for Hillary. ( teasing)

My 2 cents (worth what you paid for it):

It's a three way race between McCain, Huckabee and Romney. McCain is right out for what should be obvious reasons to anyone that cares about battling illegal immigration.

Huckabee is out too, but for a far more complicated plethora of reasons than McCain. Not the least among those reasons is the further fracturing Huckabee would encourage between social and fiscal conservatives. Thinking in terms of the long (conservative) game, Huckabee is actually the worst choice of the three.

OK... so you're a smart guy Ror. Process of elimination leaves who? Yup... as much as it pains me to say it... Romney. He certainly isn't my first choice, but he's the least harmful choice. Sad that it comes down to that, but I suppose that's how the political game goes. Being a precinct chair as you are, I reckon you know better than I do how the game is played.

Dude, Romney is a close second in my book. I really don't see where ANY of the three would prevent further fractioning of the base. They all are about as bad for that. What pushed me into Huckabee's camp instead of Romney is Romney's second amendment stances. But like I said, I'm not really married to Huck either.
I will point out that Duncan Hunter endorsed Huck, which does at least say SOMETHING of his character. (one would hope...)

I've been on the Huck-wagon for a long time, but I think it's going to come down between McCain and Romney. In that scenario, I pick Romney.

As you said, we have a possible 2 supreme court justices to consider. That's why I can't understand why some conservatives have said they'd sit out the election because there aren't any good choices.

Does Giulliani even stand a chance?

He does have a history of telling the Arabs where they can go (Arafat, the Prince with the check, etc.).

Short answer: No.
Longer answer: HELL no.

Even longer answer: He can have my guns a bullet at a time, and then He can test out their mass by repeatedly slamming his forehead into the butt of them when they are empty. His idea of conservative judges would be welcomed by the Kossacks.

In short, he would be only fractionally better than Shrillary. And that is a mighty small fraction indeed.
