The Free Republic Endorsement

January 31, 2008

Jim RobinsonJim Robinson, founder of the most significant conservative news site on the Internet, Free Republic, has decided to make an endorsement announcement now that there are only three candidates (plus loony Ron Paul) in the race.  He provides seven reasons to support…drumroll please

Mike Huckabee!

First, as to the other two available choices:

McCain is insane and there are many good reasons not to choose him, but I’ll list just five: McCain-Feingold, McCain-Kennedy, McCain-Lieberman, the Keating 5, and the Gang of 14. No thanks. McCain is out!

Romney ran on a pro-abortion platform, is pro gay rights, is prone to BIG government solutions, promises anything to anyone for a vote, and flip-flops on important issues. Can’t trust him.

Pretty darn solid reasoning there, Jim.  We apparently think alike regarding those two clowns.  Now, what’s the influential head Freeper have to say about Mike Huckabee?

Now Governor Huckabee. Could this be the good vs evil? He’s a Baptist minister. A genuine 100% pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, Southron Christian social conservative!

And his first five of seven reasons for supporting former Governor Mike Huckabee are:

And that would be my reason no. 1 to support Huckabee. He has the trust and backing of the Christian evangelicals and the support of the Bible Belt. You cannot win the presidency without the South, and I believe the pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-America Mike Huckabee is the most likely of the three GOP hopefuls to carry the South. And that’s a pretty darn good reason!

My number two reason is that he is NOT McCain (and that’s a pretty darn good reason too).

Number three (and this will be a tough one for a lot of my FReeper Friends) is that he is NOT Romney.

Numbers four and five are he’s NOT Hillary and NOT Obama. Oohrah!

You’ll have to read the whole thing for his final two reasons and his scathing assessment of RINO Rudy Giuliani.  It’s worth it!

Thank you Jim, for refusing to fall for that empty suit, Mittens Romney.  But, heck.  That’s a no brainer, isn’t it?

Giuliani Set To Endorse McCain

January 29, 2008

John McCain and Rudy GiulianiUnconfirmed conversations are going on between the John McCain and Rudy Giuliani campaigns. It’s very likely that Giuliani will drop out of the race after a very pathetic and disappointing third or fourth place finish. Florida was Rudy’s firewall, after all. He has experienced a very predictable firebreak. The more people learn about the guy, the less they like him.

But here’s the developing news as reported by Time:

SOURCES: Giuliani expected to endorse McCain, as early as Wednesday – in Los Angeles or Simi Valley.

Now that the Sunshine has set, two old friends come to an understanding.

McCain topper Rick Davis has quietly moved an agreement to near final.

Developing……

The big questions are: will Rudy campaign for McCain as well as endorsing him? And will that hurt or help him?

Daily Kos Endorses Mitt Romney

January 10, 2008

Daily KosHead kook Kos is encouraging Michigan Democrats to support Mitt Romney.  Republicans should heed this advice and abandon the Mittens to offset this attempt at destroying our party.

Michigan Democrats should vote for Mitt Romney, because if Mitt wins, Democrats win. How so?

For Michigan Democrats, the Democratic primary is meaningless since the DNC stripped the state of all its delegates (at least temporarily) for violating party rules. Hillary Clinton is alone on the ballot.

Since there’s no contest on the Democrat party side, let’s ruin it for the Republicans!  How immature.

But on the GOP side, this primary will be fiercely contested. John McCain is currently enjoying the afterglow of media love since his New Hamsphire victory, while Iowa winner Mike Huckabee is poised to do well in South Carolina.

So Kos wants to ensure that neither strong candidate gains momentum.

Meanwhile, poor Mitt Romney, who’s suffered back-to-back losses in the last week, desperately needs to win Michigan in order to keep his campaign afloat.  Bottom line, if Romney loses Michigan, he’s out. If he wins, he stays in.

Daily KosThe Democrats benefit by keeping Romney’s head above water.  It’s sink or swim time for Mittens.  Fish or cut bait.

And we want Romney in, because the more Republican candidates we have fighting it out, trashing each other with negative ads and spending tons of money, the better it is for us. We want Mitt to stay in the race, and to do that, we need him to win in Michigan.

That sounds like an endorsement to me.  Kos is not stupid, even if he is a bit of an unhinged chump.  He knows that Mitt cannot win, but he wants to keep the spoiler alive to keep better candidates from gaining momentum.

If we can help push Mitt over the line, not only do we help keep their field fragmented, but we also pollute Romney’s victory. How “legitimate” will the Mittster’s victory look if liberals provide the margin of victory? Think of the hilarity that will ensue. We’ll simply be adding fuel to their civil war, never a bad thing from our vantage point.

Clever, clever.  Let’s not let them get away with it.

Michigan is Romney’s last stand.  He has pulled all advertising from other states for a last-ditch effort there. It’s sink or swim time for Romney, and we’re going to throw him a lifesaver.

If you know people in Michigan, forward them a link to Kos’ post and suggest that they throw Mitt an anvil.  It’s the right thing to do for our party and for America.  Especially since Democrats and the nutroots are trying to fracture our party.

NH Union Leader Assesses Mitt Romney

December 26, 2007

Mitt RomneyAnd doesn’t like what it finds.

THERE IS A reason Mitt Romney has not received a single newspaper endorsement in New Hampshire. It’s the same reason his poll numbers are dropping. He has not been able to convince the people of this state that he’s the conservative he says he is.

Like a lot of people in New Hampshire, we wanted to believe Romney. We gave him the benefit of the doubt. We listened very carefully to his expertly rehearsed sales pitch. But in the end he didn’t close the deal for us. Now, two weeks before the primary, the same is happening with voters.

And the paper also adds this truism: “In this primary, the more Mitt Romney speaks, the less believable he becomes.” Nothing truer has ever been said.

Will New Hampshire voters reject Mitt Romney? Time will tell.

Update: Hot Air has more, including reaction from the Romney campaign. Meanwhile, Michelle focuses less on Romney and more on McCain.

Update 2: The San Diego Union-Tribune also has reservations about Mitt.

Pat Robertson Made a Big Mistake

November 9, 2007

Rudy Giuliani - TransvestiteAlthough many are keeping quiet about their disappointment that Pat Robertson chose to endorse Rudy Giuliani, others are not.

A California pro-family activist believes Pat Robertson made the biggest mistake of his public life earlier this week by endorsing former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for president. Randy Thomasson says the well-known televangelist is “casting a blind eye” to Giuliani’s penchant for pro-homosexual issues.

Hear, hear!

“He and Hillary Clinton are nearly identical on moral values. It is appalling that Pat Robertson has made perhaps the biggest error of his public life,” he says. “Sadly Pat Robertson is leading pro-family voters astray by abandoning moral standards for government and voting.”

Just what was Robertson thinking?

A press statement from CCF argues for Thomasson’s case. “It’s well known in New York City that former mayor Rudy Giuliani marched in ‘lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender’ parades, held ‘lesbian and gay pride breakfasts’ at Gracie Mansion, dressed up several times as a woman, led the hijacking of marriage rights at New York City Hall, and personally demeaned marriage by divorcing his first two wives and committing adultery,” says the statement. Gracie Mansion is the official residence of the mayor of New York City.

Has Pat Robertson gone soft on homosexuality and transvestism? The Giuliani endorsement will certainly go down as the most shocking news of the week.

A Tale of Two Endorsements

November 7, 2007
Brownback and Robertson
Pat Robertson and Sam Brownback

Today was a big day for political endorsements. Two conservative heavyweights weighed in, and in this political referee’s humble opinion it was a split decision.

In one corner, we have Sam Brownback, former Presidential candidate, current Senator and future Governor of Kansas and in the other is Pat Robertson, former Presidential candidate and founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and the Christian Coalition. Both are huge stars on the socon stage.

First the good news: Sam Brownback did not endorse Rudy Giuliani. Now the bad news: Pat Robertson did. Amazing isn’t the word.  Perhaps “shocking” would suffice.

Sam Brownback To Endorse Giuliani?

October 25, 2007

Rudy Giuliani, Feeling PrettyThat’s the question posed in The Hill today. After Sam Brownback bowed out of the race for the Republican nomination last week, he stated three points very clearly.

  1. He will support the GOP nominee
  2. The nominee will be pro-life
  3. The nominee will not be Rudoph Giuliani

Well, that’s logical isn’t it? It reads like a geometry proof. Cutie Rudy is pro-abortion, so how could pro-life Republicans, especially one as dedicated to the sanctity of life as Senator Brownback possibly endorse a pro-abort RINO like Giuliani? Well, he can’t. Can he?

Yet The Hill claims that an endorsement is likely coming in the next few weeks. And it spends most of its time pushing the theory that Rudy’s the one and how much it will help catapult him to the nomination.

So is Sam Brownback going to sacrifice his core values and endorse a crossdressing RINO? I Don’t Think So. Read about it over at B4B and decide for yourself.

Mark Noonan Contemplates Senate Run

October 22, 2007

Senator Mark NoonanGreat news! I’m a little late on this breaking news and it’s a little early to say it’s a done deal, but Mark Noonan, co-author of Caucus of Corruption and Blogs for Bush, is considering a run against Harry Reid-tard for Senate in Nevada!

Reid has a mean streak a mile wide and he simply will leave no stone unturned in attempting to destroy any Republican who runs against him. Running against Reid will take immense moral courage and the confidence of a man (or woman) who simply doesn’t care what people say about him. Come 2010, a lot of Republicans might find they have something better to do than expend a massive amount of effort on what will be a dicey (at best) shot at unseating the Senate Majority Leader. This is where I come in.

Give him the encouragement he needs and help convince his wife to vote for him! 😀

Well, I can count two votes, other than my own, if I were to run…though I haven’t asked my wife, yet, if she’d vote for me…

You’ll get many more votes than that, Senator Noonan!

Senator Noonan. It has a nice ring to it. B4C hereby endorses Mark Noonan for the U.S. Senate. Now go get ’em, Mark!

Update: Mark sounds serious. Great!

…as an aside, the fundamental dream here is not so much to win (that is a dream’s dream), but to rise high enough to force Reid to debate me…once that is done, then the chips will fall where they may, but I’ll have considered my campaign a success just in the fact that I directly challenged Reid and forced him to defend himself against the voice of the people.

Make that dream come true. I’ve been reading Blogs for Bush for quite some time now, and it’s obvious that Mark would have Dingy Harry crying in a corner wetting his pants before the debate was done. Noonan would have an excellent chance at victory after a single debate.

Chuck Norris Chooses Huckabee

October 22, 2007

Chuck NorrisAfter long and agonizing consideration, Chuck Norris has made his decision. And when Norris speaks, people listen.

Like most of you, over the summer and into the fall, I’ve been watching, listening, studying and praying about who could lead this country as our next president.

I won’t leave you in suspense. Though Giuliani might be savvy enough to lead people, Fred Thompson wise enough to wade through the tides of politics, McCain tough enough to fight terrorism and Romney business-minded enough to grow our economy, I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Chuck Norris goes into detail about the reasons that he has made this huge endorsement for Huckabee. Maybe it’s time to take a second look at the former Governor. Norris doesn’t take decisions lightly. This is not an endorsement from B4C, but Norris does make a pretty compelling argument, as always.
