If McCain Wins the Nomination He Needs to Pick Huckabee as His Vice President

If McCain wins the nomination he needs to pick Huckabee as his Vice President or he might lose. Only Huckabee can help him get the South and pro-life voters. We need to keep voting for Huck on the outside chance without Romney he can win. But more importantly to let McCain know he might not get our vote without Huckabee.


Mike Huckabee "Responds" to James Dobson: I Would Vote for John McCain

Washington, DC ( -- Mike Huckabee "responded" to pro-life leader Dr. James Dobson on Wednesday morning when he said he would definitely support John McCain over either of the pro-abortion Democratic candidates.

Dobson, and other conservatives, have issued statements saying they wouldn't vote if McCain is the GOP nominee. On Tuesday, Dobson issued a statement saying he " cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience."

Asked in general about those who say they would not vote or pick someone else before they would support McCain, Huckabee said he disagreed.

"Well, you know what? They're not a conservative," the pro-life former Arkansas governor told CNN. "If they say that, then that just proves something: They're more about themselves than they are the cause. Because there's no way that a true conservative would vote for Hillary Clinton," he added.

He told CNN he respects McCain and "would certainly vote for him before I would vote for Hillary or Obama." "Some people need to switch to decaf and realize, folks, we may not get all of our battles just like we want, but there's a larger context in which this has to be fought," Huckabee added.


Pro-Abortion Group Will Tell Nation John McCain "Extremely" Pro-Life

Washington, DC ( -- John McCain took a sizable lead in the Republican race for president on Super Tuesday and leading pro-abortion group NARAL used the occasion to ratchet up its rhetoric against him.

The abortion advocacy group sent out a fundraising email Wednesday morning asking for donations to tell the nation McCain is "extreme" on abortion.

"When all the dust settles, when the party nominees are finally decided, there will be two candidates left standing -- one who is pro-choice and one who is anti-choice," NARAL president Nancy Keenan told her supporters.

Keenan said that, as she watched the returns come in on Tuesday night, she was reminded that her group can't let McCain become president. "We can't afford John McCain and we cannot take anything for granted," she said, saying it is wrong for abortion proponents to assume that Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama will win in November.

That's why Keenan issued her plea for more funds -- urging abortion advocates to "donate now." "Some are talking as if this election is a foregone conclusion -- that Americans will elect a pro-choice president in 2008," Keenan wrote. "But know this: Most Americans don't know that John McCain is extremely anti-choice."

BTW, Keenan is a Catholic.


John McCain Has Problems With Pro-Life Vote, Including States He Won

Washington, DC ( -- Exit polls showed a majority of Republicans in most Super Tuesday states take a strong pro-life position but John McCain had problems getting their support even in states he won.

That could be a problem for the Arizona senator even though he opposes abortion and has called for overturning Roe v. Wade. In every case, McCain's share of the pro-life vote was less than his overall vote total in the state and he relied on his strength with pro-abortion Republicans to win.

That could help him appeal to independent voters in November, but points to concerns about his ability to hold the Republican pro-life base. Although McCain won Missouri and Oklahoma, pro-life voters there, encouraged by endorsements from statewide pro-life groups, sided with Huckabee.

The senator also won California over Mitt Romney on a 44-27 percent margin but Romney won among pro-life voters there 33-31 percent over McCain. Even in his home state of Arizona, which he won 47-34 percent over Romney, McCain lost to Romney with pro-life Republicans 46-34 percent.

Conservatives are beginning to amaze me in their inability to see what's really at stake here.

This election is about more than McCain and his inability to follow conservative principals - and that has been proven true a hundred times.

But how is handing the whole country over to liberals a suitable alternative to McCain?

There is a serious difference between McCain and a pure bread liberal who is bent on destroying ALL conservative values as well as our country with them.

Anti McCain commentators such as Rush Limbaugh have ventured the idea that perhaps we should sit this election out and let the Dems have a term in office, claiming it might pave the way for a future shot at a candidate he and others will like in four years.

Imagine the damage our country will endure if Democrats control all three branches of government for 4 to 8 years.

This would give liberals what they will treat as a clear sign from America that is it ready to move sharply to the left. Not slightly to the left.

My daughters will come of age in the next 4 to 8 years, and I'd rather have 50% of McCains earn than 0% of a destruction bent liberal's ear.

Cherry picking our candidate is exactly what got us INTO this mess, and if conservatives aren’t careful, they may throw the entire country into a liberal spin that can take a decade(s) to pull back out of.

There is no such thing as a quick recovery from 4 years of liberalism unchecked. We may be facing what will take years and years of damage to undo. What’s more, there’s no guarantee that it WILL be undone. Have conservatives completely forgotten Roe v. Wade and other extremely important issues? We need an allie on every core issue we can get.

Questioning McCain was right and highly useful for a time and a season. Many of us wish we had acted sooner to support Romney or Huck....

But staying home on election day allows liberals a pass to capture all THREE branches of Government. Do you want your kids growing up in that kind of environment?

I'm not asking anyone to sacrifice their own belief or convictions, but we have a serious serious problem here, that we can't afford to fall asleep on.

Give it some thought, friends.
