As I travel around and listen to the radio talk shows, I've noticed a distinct movement on the part of "conservative" talk show hosts to turn against the campaign of Mike Huckabee. Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Bill O'Reilly are actively marginalizing the Huckabee candidacy according to their own personal agendas. Bottom line is, it is becoming apparent that traditional Republican mouthpieces are not at all in favor of having a true evangelical Christian in the White House, and that "compassionate conservatism" was really just a hollow allowance made to evangelicals to keep us on the Republican bandwagon.
This article in the current issue of American Conservative Magazine does an excellent job of laying this fact bare for all to see. And while the current lambasting of Mr. Huckabee on the nation's radiowaves seems to be suppressing support for him in the early primaries, I think it is just quite possible that the Republicans may lose control of their bandwagon before this whole thing is over.
America is looking for a president to lead based on a combination of moral principle, common sense, and duty to God and country. While the political pundits get completely enmeshed in the trivialities of "policy", most Americans are just looking into the eyes of the candidate, and deciding who they would follow into the next dark battle of life. On this basis our next President will be elected...and God Himself will judge our choice.
