You got to go with a guy who can win and bring the talent to DC that we need to inspire this nation to be great again. Smitten with Mitt!

The LAST thing we need is someone who vowed to uphold the "right" to murder babies his entire career and who promised to be more liberal than Ted Kennedy. How about someone who won re-election for Governor TWICE and won four elections standing up against the Clinton political machine? How about someone who has NEVER stopped fighting for the rights of the unborn? How about "Fair Tax" instead of the Original architect of Obamacare?

American needs someone that can reach across Party lines and get thing done. Huckabee has 10 1/2 years of leadership experience working with a HUGE Democrat controlled Congress and was still able to get many major improvements done to the state of Arkansas fiscally responsibly. He left office with a high approval rating after exhausting term limits.

Huckabee for President 2012!

This country has been aching for another great president to go down in history as a catalyst for an upswing in the economy, morale of the people, and pride in our everyday life. If Mitt Romney ends up in the white house, I would swell with pride at the thought of being American, and the thought that our country isn't "going to the dogs" as so many nowadays believe. I love my country and I believe Mitt Romney is the man that pull us through.

Mitt Romney was also very successful in reaching across party lines as governor of the most liberal state in the nation. His "RomneyCare" was working quite well until he left the office and the Democrat governor came in and messed around with it to the junk it is today.

Obama and his cronies consider Romney a threat--that's why they are praising his RomneyCare plan because they know it will turn uninformed voters away from Romney. You mention Mike Huckabee's name and they barely even blink. Mike Huckabee is the 2012 version of John McCain. Anyone who votes for Mike Huckabee simply want Obama in office for another 4 years.

America is starving for integrity --Huckabee has it. Romney? He's pro whatever will get the vote. Haven't you guys seen the videos of his "I'm more liberal than Teddy K" campaign in Massachusetts? And his "I'm a STEADFAST pro-life conservative" in 2008?

We've had enough slick and slimy politicians in office. It's time for a change. Now we need real integrity, real ability, real experience and a real American leader. Mike Huckabee.

@ Jeannie C

Let's see---first video was from 1994. How many election seasons since that time?? That's not pandering, or a lack of integrity--that's philosophical evolution. People change, and for the better. Mitt Romney is so far above Huckabee in every way (class, intelligence, experience in private sector), it would be amusing if it weren't so dangerous that many out there see things the way you do. Huckabee alienates the middle--and will lose conservatives the presidency if he pulls the same selfish stunt like last primary season by staying in the race regardless of it's consequences in the general election...just to spite Romney--that isn't integrity, that's actually quite slimy. Huckabee makes a lot of noise, but he isn't a serious option. The sooner Huckabee followers understand this, the more promising is the future for conservatism.

Both Huckabee and Romney have had policy hic-coughs, and both have shown leadership growth in recent years. Both can have their scary points when we open our selves to bias, yet neither is quite as suspicious as whom we have now. As for electability, I think it's clearly the one who happened to win this poll.

I'd like to see the brackets done a couple more time with different combinations

I dislike both choices here. I hope we have a better GOP candidate in 2012 than either of these schmucks.

Maggie@Maggiesnotebook said...

This is a tough one form me. I fear Romney will not repeal ObamaCare and Huckabee will never meet a social program he doesn't love.

Great idea for a poll, btw.

You know, I frequently notice that critisism from Huckabee supporters or Palin supporters tend to be slanderous and contain personal jabs towards Romney. Whereas critisism from Romney supporters are far more likely to be factual and record based. Remember in 2008 when most of the major Conservative talking heads (ie Hannity, Limbaugh ect.) endorsed Romney over Huckabee/McCain? Make no mistake, when it comes to Romney and Huckabee, Romney is the Conservative one. Huckabee was a tax raiser in Arkansa(half a billion). He was a huge spender(600% increase in government spending in his second term). He wanted to give "free" in-state tuition to the children of illegal immigrants and voiced support for amnesty. and of course handed out three times as many commutations to convicted fellons than his three previous predecessors combined. Bravo for being solidly pro-life his whole life, but there's more to being Conservative than just being Pro-life.
