Romney endorses McCain

Huckabee feels the sting

Mitt Romney, who recently withdrew from his own presidential campaign, has endorsed John McCain for the Republican party’s presidential nomination. He also requested that his 280 national convention delegates mobilize behind McCain. Those delegates would be more than enough to put Arizona’s senator over the 1,191 needed to secure the GOP nomination.

But, many of those delegates are from caucus states that won’t select the actual delegates until state conventions this spring. Those delegates will be selected by people who supported Romney in the initial caucuses; the direction they go depends on whether they follow Romney’s lead in endorsing McCain.

Currently, McCain has 843 delegates, Huckabee. 242.

    Romney exhibits more decency than McCain would have, had the situation been reversed. I hope this feels as good to Huckabee as his stinging attacks must have felt to Romney. My all time favorite was the one where he planted the seed of Mormons believing Jesus and Satan were brothers–then quickly backtracked when questioned by reporters. He stammered something about “not being real knowledgeable “about the LDS faith.

    His other “smooth” move was when he pulled an attack ad, but showed it to the press, telling them it was too aggressive to air, and he wanted them to see it to realize why he pulled it. Huckabee should have been a snake oil salesman.

    This guy repulsed me. Glad he’ll have to fold up his huckster tent.

    Ah, Mitt, how could you?

    McCain will win the battle but lose the war. He will never be president.

    This is why I love this blog so much… You are able to “get” that this is a move to get the “Huck” out of the race… Fine with me. Huck-a-douche is in this for himself….

    Huckabee has played the role of spoiler all along. He had nothing to lose with a potential net gain. I find him offensive. His obvious anti-Mormon bias should render him unqualified to be dog catcher. He gives a negative portrayal of Baptist ministers. I’m sorry this is what many in the public think Baptists are all about, which is certainky not the case.
