McCain and the “Not Very Conservative” vote – Part 2

For his second consecutive primary win, McCain did it with the “not very conservative” vote.

I am anxious to see Huckabee do well on Super Tuesday.  If the “Right” media did not have a bias against Huckabee, his campaign wouldn’t have the perception of stagnation.  Reality is, Romney’s campaign isn’t doing any better than Huckabee. In fact, if Romney wasn’t propped up by special intrest groups and writing checks from his own account, he would be doing much worse.  As others in the blog world have stated, Mike Huckabee is the only true conservative in the race.

My hopes (I’m not holding my breath) are that:

1. the Republican party will recognize the lack of enthusiasm for Romney (if people trusted him, we would be tripping over ourselves to get him elected)

2. the voters will re-examine to find Huckabee as THE viable conservative candidate.

I have been getting e-mails from the Republican Party asking for contributions so they can keep pace with the Democrats.  If the nominee is Romney, and to a slightly lesser extent McCain, they can forget it.  I may vote for them because I have no other choice.  But, I’ll be first in line when Mike gets the nomination.
