Mike Huckabee concedes

mccain New York Times just reported that Mike Huckabee has conceded to John McCain. Even though John McCain has been the unofficial Republican candidate for some time now, Mike Huckabee has been trying to give him a run. I for one am glad that he has finally conceded to John McCain so we can get on with campaigning against who ever the honorary socialist party puts forward.

I was also delighted to hear Mike Huckabee clearly endorse John McCain.

Mr. Huckabee said. “I extended him not only my congratulations, but my commitment to him and to the party to do everything possible to unite our party, but more importantly to unite our country so we can be the best nation we can be.”

Mr. Huckabee added, “We’ll be working on everything we can to help Senator McCain.”

There are a lot of Ron Paul supporters who could learn a lesson from Mike Huckabee.

On the other side, Hillary Clinton shows her clout by denying Barack Obama in Rhode Island, Ohio & Texas. Looks like Democrats in those states favor Hillary’s socialism over Barack’s brand of socialism. Or maybe they just prefer knowing what they are being overtaxed for rather than being taxed for one man’s still undisclosed dream?  Or perhaps Sen. Obama’s campaign has peaked too early?

  1. Who wants John McCain to represent them? Certainly not most Republicans I have talked to. Why should we rally around someone who is pro Amnesty, has no idea how to run an economy, is clueless about the dire financial straight we are in, embraces Global Warming, and I’m not even fully convinced he is a Constitutional candidate (he was born in the Panama Canal Zone).

    He was part of the reason why we couldn’t get more Conservative judges approved through Congress (he was part of the gang of 12) and lest we forget is not above corruption charges (remember the Keating 5).

    Personally he is not someone I can get excited about or support financially. Both Clinton and Obama raised something crazy like 50million in February, how much did McCain raise? I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s still raising less than Ron Paul. I got excited about Ron Paul not so much for his war standing, but for everything else. It wasn’t until I understood his war standing and how it fits in with our Republican tradition that I embraced that as well.

    Will I vote for McCain? I would vote for him over Obama or Clinton, but if a better 3rd party candidate steps forward I will do my American duties and give them my support. I pledged allegiance to our flag and our Country. Not our Party.

    There’s all this talk about how the Republican party is a big tent. That *may* be the case, but the types of candidates we put forth seem to usually come from one side of that tent, and unfortunately its not the traditional Conservative side.

    I think I generally do go easy on them. We share a lot of common conservative ideals, but at this point in the candidate selection process Ron Paul is a statement rather than a viable candidate. It’s time for conservatives of all stripes to choose a candidate and defend our nation against socialism in 2008.

    Go easy on the Paulians. For the most part they are new to the game and don’t appreciate the nuances of the team effort.
