While I’m no fan of Rush Limbaugh–he’s a jockwasher for the GOP elitists–I also understand that it makes no practical sense to alienate a substantial base of conservatives who admire the man. For Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR), who has largely prided himself on being a positive, articulate candidate, this is political suicide.
This is also further proof that the Huckster does not have a substantive Presidential agenda. Given that the top-tier GOP candidates are nothing short of horrendous, any candidate of Huck’s stature would be running away with the nomination if he had a solid agenda with a track record to back it up.
Trouble is, Huckster is only in the spotlight because the other forerunners–Rudy McRompson–just plain suck.
If Huck flops–and he is self-destructing–the two candidates left are representatives Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Ron Paul (R-TX).
Of the two, Paul is the most consistent, coherent, and substantive.
