HUCKABEE PROPELLED BY STRONG FLORIDA FINISH

HUCKABEE PROPELLED BY STRONG FLORIDA FINISH

By Leon (Producer)

I spent six hours with Duncan Hunter and Mike Huckabee last Saturday flying to a rally in Birmingham with literally thousands attending. The media however, ignored this and focused on Florida's primary, with its distorted perception created by GOP establishment money flooding the TV and radio markets.  The state's GOP establishment were also all piling on for McCain, Romney and Guiliani.  In spite of having no money for media buys, Huckabee virtually tied Guiliani who spent millions.  Huckabee showed his Presidential qualities in last night's debate while Romney displayed the obvious psychological impact of his modest second place finish in Florida.  These facts aren't covered in any of the media networks, including Fox.

Congressman Hunter's decision to withdraw and endorse Gov Huckabee was deliberately timed for his organization to be leveraged to maximize Huckabee's Florida turnout and prevent a first place Romney finish.  Had that occurred, Romney would have been anointed Ronald Reagan incarnate on Wednesday morning's news shows making him virtually unstoppable. Senator McCain's excessive liberal baggage makes him far easier to defeat on Super Tuesday. The psychological impact of Florida on Romney was evident during Wednesday's GOP debates while Huckabee emerged as Presidential.  
 
Significantly, Congressman Hunter did not endorse his Armed Services Committee counterpart in the Senate, and fellow Vietnam Veteran John McCain because of his past leadership of amnesty attempts for illegal aliens.  Governor Romney has failed to influence the Bain Corporation, which he previously controlled, to drop its strategic partnership with Chinese defense contractor Huawei Technologies in a bid to buy U.S. defense contractor 3Com. Duncan Hunter endorsed Mike Huckabee as the "most strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China's emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America's industrial base." Huckabee has obviously emerged as the true conservative alternative for Middle America.  VOTE MIKE HUCKABEE ON FEB 5TH
