Another reason why the conservative mutiny over Giulaini may not amount to much. Richard Viguerie, one of the leaders of the charge for a third party movement, has just issued a missive entitled, “Mike Huckabee: Wishy-Washy Republican:”
Some voters pining for a principled conservative Republican presidential candidate are pinning their hopes on former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee. But while Gov. Huckabee stands strong on some issues like abortion that are important to social conservatives, a careful examination of his record as governor reveals that he is just another wishy-washy Republican who enthusiastically promotes big government.
The point is that conservatives angry about the prospect of a Giuliani nomination would have more influence if they could say, “Rudy is unnacceptable as a nominee, but we’d support X.” Once the entire field is deemed unacceptable by conservative agitators such as Viguerie, it makes it seem as if they are just determined to be cranky toward the GOP no matter what.
