Conservatives Against Huckabee

Jeff Fuller from "Iowans for Romney" has made this post that reveals just how many conservatives are united against Huckabee. The following is taken directly from Jeff Fuller:

"I altered the date on this post to keep it at the top of the blog entries until caucus day (by popular demand)Huckabee and his supporters always seem to point out that Romney's attacking him.

"The already nascent Huck-a-bust will undoubtedly be blamed on Romney by Huck and his supporters. However . . . I don't think that Romney had anything to do with the fact that essentially every conservative with a microphone or blog has been railing against Huckabee for the last few weeks. Need some evidence?:
Rush Limbaugh
Condoleezza Rice
Michelle Malkin
Ann Coulter (new one here)
Phyllis Schlafly
Bob Novak (others here & here)
Peggy Noonan
Charles Krauthammer
Bob Dole
Sean Hannity (not frontal attacks, but plenty
of concerns
about him being the nominee)
Laura Ingraham
Fred Barnes
Joseph Farah (Founder/CEO/Editor of World Net Daily also expresses concern
for homeschoolers who support Huck
Thomas Sowell
George Will (these comments
too on a TV news show)
Michael Reagan
Glenn Beck (semi
---- but then he's still not too impressed)
Donald Lambro
David Limbaugh (another here)
Michael Barone
Mark Steyn
Kim Strassell
Matt Drudge (it's obvious that he has a bone to pick with Huckabee given his coverage of late)Pat Buchanan
Jonah Goldberg
John Fund (an interesting video here)
Jim Geraghty
Kathryn Jean Lopez (another here)
Tony Blankley
Howie Carr
James Taranto (here too, don't miss, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 of "No Truck with Huck")Clarence Page
Dean Barnett
Rich Karlgaard
Rich Lowry (this one too)
Mark Hemingway
Austin Hill
Quin Hillyer
Tom Bevan
Jack Kelly
Deroy Murdock
David Frum
Jonathan Alder
John Hinderaker
Bruce Bartlett
Victor Davis Hanson
Johnathan Tobin
Hugh Hewitt (and another)
Walter E. Williams
David Reinhard
Frank Gaffney (who Huck claimed was one of his Foreign Policy advisors)
Lori Byrd
Peter Wehner
Douglas MacKinnon
Paul Mirengoff ( here and here too)
Jerome Corsi
The Editors of National Review (Oh yeah, this one too and both were written BEFORE the NR endorsed Romney)
The Club for Growth
The Cato Institute (Huckabee's F grade for fiscal issue . . . 46th out of the 50
governors ranked. Yes, that's worse than the vast majority of Democratic
governors!--PDF here)
Mitt Romney :)
Ron Paul :)
Fred Thompson :)
Rudy Giuliani :)
"You can just hear and feel all of these conservative/GOP icons pleading with the voters: "PLEASE DON'T MAKE US TRY TO DEFEND THIS GUY!!!" (should he be the nominee).Conclusion: Huckabee's not a full-spectrum conservative and the GOP would be unwise to give him the nomination. Romney has had to point out the un-conservative spots in Huck's record because the MSM/DNC axis sure hasn't been (they want him as the GOP nominee) and because McCain and Rudy want Huck to win Iowa to stifle Romney's path to the nomination. However, Romney is hardly alone in pointing out Huckabee's worrisome record.Update: This post has attracted some attention! Hugh Hewitt's blog linked to my cross-posting over at MyManMitt. Also, Quin Hillyer's recent article "The Republican Party: All Hucked Up" contains a list that is interestingly familiar to mine."

Mitt Romney is the LEAST CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE in this race.

At least today...he's changed his mine on virtually every issue, more than once.

He's changed his mind on abortion.......anything else you got and can defend?

--Gay rights......nothing's changed (Romney doesn't feel redefining marriage is discrimination against gays).

--Illegal immigration.....nothing's changed.

--Gun control.......nothing's changed (he still supports some regulations, but doesn't believe he has to agree with the NRA 100%).

Seriously what is this every issue you're talking about?
