A Preponderance of Evidence (Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, and Mike Huckabee)

A compilation of links confirming the following themes:

1) First and Foremost . . . Mitt Romeny is Awesome! (Boy, so many to choose from; but I'll limit it): here, here, here, here, here, and here. Anybody else's favorites are welcome in the comments section.

2) Rudy/Huck alliance or "A vote for Huckabee is a vote for Rudy": here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

3) Huckabee's politicizing religion and marginalizing himself as the "Evangelical candidate" (who the MSM and Dems would have a field day destroying . . . of course only AFTER he's helped stir the pot in the GOP field): here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here (and his religious perceptions determine his policy positions which, therefore, can no longer be up for debate, right? here, here, here, here, here, and here) . . . also, I just saw Fox News footage of a Huckabee Campaign event in SC where he said: "I'm here today to talk about Jesus, not to talk about me" (not sure how old that footage is).

Bonus material: Huckabee's slick but unsubstantive style is exposed in this RedState comment (scroll up to see the the post for context). Love it!

Nice work, Jeff.

Huck's surge will reverse very soon if it isn't happening already. He's not an embarrassment on the campaign trail as Fred was, but as an increasing number of his statements/positions come to light, he's toast.

Rudy's losing ground to Mike. So, it won't be long before Giuliani aims his guns in Huckabee's direction. Rudy already hammered Mike on his "fair" tax. More to come.

I give him 2-3 weeks and he'll be around 15% in Iowa (or less) and back to the 6-7% range nationally.

Charles Mitchell at Evangelicals for Mitt (EFM) has wonderful analysis on Mitt's upcoming "speech."

Nancy French, another terrific writer at EFM, says this:

Now that Gov. Huckabee is enjoying a boomlet, it's his turn under the microscope.

Take your turn, Mike. This is what will drip away his mushroomed poll numbers.

Let's talk theology. Gov. Huchkabee said that he will never go against his beliefs. He said that the children of illegal immigrants should not be punished for the sins/law breaking of their parents. "We are a better nation than that." Our first parents, Adam and Eve, transgressed the law. Their children have been punished, by God himself. The only way for these children to return to the presence of God is through grace, it cannot be earned! So, Gov. Huckabee, by using other peoples' money, is now more compassionate than God. The children of law breakers should not be able to earn these special college benefits. We are a nation of law and order. What other wonderful compassionate programs will Gov. Huckabee try to put on the citizens of this Great Nation should he become President?

Thanks for compiling all of this, Jeff! I seriously wonder how much, if any of this, Iowans supporting Huckabee really know. Choosing a President is serious business and I hope people get beyond the class president mentality. Being affable and funny are nice qualities but those don't qualify you to be POTUS.
