Huckabee for Vice PresidentNational Review is set to declare who it thinks is unacceptable for John McCain to choose as a running mate. Apparently, Mitt Romney is acceptable to the good folks at the Review, he who was in favor of abortion-"it will not be a multiple choice"-before he was "pro-life, and favored that legislation," and who is now pro-Second Amendment and hunted "small varmints, really," but previously said he favored the "tough gun laws in Massachusetts (I support them)." What a fine conservative choice.
The reality is that we had a conservative choice in this election. We had someone who was pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and who would appoint judges were he elected that reflected those values-our values. We all blew it collectively, including me, because it seemed that we were looking for the perfect candidate instead of the right one.
As Adam Graham pointed out, some people were concerned in 1976 and 1980 that Ronald Reagan didn't have a perfect record, either. Conservatives gave Reagan a chance anyway, and I'd say it worked out pretty well for us and for the country in the end.
Mike Huckabee is a man who, at the very deepest level, understands conservative values and shares them. We do not need to ask whether Huckabee is pro-life, and we don't need to wonder from his past actions if he will act on the pro-life convictions that he proclaims were he to enter office. Huckabee was never the perfect candidate, but those of us who were so quick to write him off soon found out that he may have been the right one.
Through his new venture HUCKPAC, Mike Huckabee is showing that he isn't just supporting Republican candidates, but conservative ones, and even as we bemoan the present Republican nominee, Mike Huckabee is out laying the groundwork for the conservative future of the GOP-a future he will have helped to build. If John McCain is serious about winning in November, he should select Mike Huckabee as his running mate.
The World is proud to endorse Mike Huckabee for the Vice Presidency of the United States.
