"He's an opportunist. It's important for voters to know who they are voting for," says Jennifer Blei Stockman who is the co-chair of the Republican Majority for Choice. "If we weren't so betrayed by the dishonesty of Mitt Romney's actions, we would not be running ads."
A Romney spokesperson said that: "Governor Romney will not back down from his pro-life position, despite this group's attempts to weaken the party platform and promote Mayor Giuliani's pro-choice candidacy."
"If you're prepared to send an 80-year-old grandmother who's been here 70 years back to some country, then, frankly you're not quite as compassionate as maybe I am," said McCain at a campaign stop in South Carolina.

Fineman says: Mike Huckabee "is fast becoming the semi-official candidate of the evangelicals," Ron Paul is the "baptized hero" among libertarians, and for the hawks "Giuliani is the Man, going George W. Bush and Dick Cheney one better in confrontational, I-love-Armageddon fervor."
"The nomination is very much worth having. But to grab it, someone is going to have to step forward on the stage to play Ronald Reagan with a script by Karl Rove," he ads.

The Cleavland Plain Dealer reports:
"I'm thinking about Ron Paul" as a running mate, Kucinich told a crowd of about 70 supporters at a house party here, one of numerous stops throughout New Hampshire over the Thanksgiving weekend. A Kucinich-Paul administration could bring people together "to balance the energies in this country," Kucinich said.
Paul communications director Jesse Benton said: "They have worked, and will continue to work, together on ending the war and protecting civil liberties. However, Ron wants to substantially cut the size and scope of the federal government. There are too many differences on issues such as taxes and spending to think a joint ticket would be possible."
Dennis Hof, a Nevada brothel owner, is collecting funds for Congressman Paul at Moonlite BunnyRanch near Carson City. "I'll get all the (working girls) together, and we can raise him some money. I'll put up a collection box outside the door. They can drop in $1, $5 contributions," he said.
Paul spokesman Jeff Greenspan had this to say: "On a personal basis, he [Paul] doesn't condone those things. At the same time, from his campaign perspective, it's not the role of federal government and it's not in the constitution for federal government to regulate these things. The Nevada votrs and Legislature have decided it is legal activity in this state."

Barr served in Congress from 1995-2003 as a Republican and since then has joined the Libertarian Party and since December of last year has served as its the Southeast Region representative.
John Fund, a columnist for The Wall Street Journal, explored the possibility in a commentary posted yesterday on the Journal's website. ‘Friends of Mr. Dobbs say he is seriously contemplating a race for the first time, although it's still unlikely,’ Fund reported. Those friends play out a scenario under which New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg enters the race as an independent, then Dobbs jumps in as a fourth-party candidate.”

Adams addresses the question: "I like you, but how can I vote for you when you might just be a spoiler?"
His answer is: "Yes, there is risk in casting your vote for us. There is more risk in NOT casting your vote for us. How many more years of politics as usual can we survive? What will happen to us - our economy, our security & safety, the laws and taxes that affect us every day – if we allow those that created the problems to continue running the show regardless of the label they wear?"
"Forty-nine million abortions since 1973 is a moral blight upon our land that must be corrected and 1.2 million abortions a year continues to break the very heart and soul of this nation. Our next president must be a person who believes this within the foundations of his soul. And we need a president who has the moral convictions and commitment to work to end the cultural nightmare of abortion. I am convinced that Governor Huckabee is that person."

He goes onto say: “Americans are abandoning the wreckage of both parties in droves. The Constitution Party has emerged as the party those voters are counting on to provide a choice in ‘08”

A press release from the NRLC says:
"Fred Thompson has had a strong, consistent pro-life record throughout his political career. Thompson opposes abortion and believes the 1973 abortion on demand Supreme Court decision was wrongly decided and must be reversed. During his eight years in the United States Senate, he always opposed using tax dollars to promote or pay for abortion and supported the many pro-life measures such as parental notice and consent."
Political blogger Daniel Myers commented on the NRLC's endorsement on his blog today saying: "The National Right to Life organization has chosen to skip pass Pro-Life Candidate Mike Huckabee and endorse someone who does not support a constitutional ban against Abortion."

The former Arkansas governor was on Face the Nation on Sunday and had this to say:
"These are folks who are ready to sign up and who are ready to walk through eight feet of snow to get to the polls," Huckabee said of Iowa voters.

Baldwin points several quotes among them is this one from President of the Eagle Forum Phyllis Schlafly: "He destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles. Yet some of the same evangelicals who sold us on George W. Bush as a 'compassionate conservative' are now trying to sell us on Mike Huckabee."
The 2004 CP Vice Presidential candidate goes onto attack Huckabee's illegal immigration with this quote from Jim Boulet, Jr., executive director of English First: "Rudy Giuliani spent years defending the right of New York City to remain a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Yet Giuliani was a veritable Lou Dobbs Jr. on illegal immigration in comparison to Mike Huckabee."
"Christians need to beware of Mike Huckabee. He is not a conservative. Even worse, he is not a constitutionalist. He is an opportunist, however. This is demonstrated by the fact that many of his supporters are openly posturing (with Huckabee's consent, obviously) for an opportunity to run Huckabee as a potential Vice Presidential candidate with either Giuliani or Romney at the top of the ticket," Baldwin says.
You can read Chuck Baldwin's full article HERE.
Former 2008 presidential candidate Sen. Sam Brownback endorsed Sen. John McCain, "If you want a guy to change Washington, John McCain's the guy to do it. He has been in Washington, but he is not of Washington," said Brownback. McCain commented on the Kansas senator's endorsement saying: "I think it matters when one of the most respected members of the United States Senate, and in the pro-life family values community lends his support to my candidacy. I think it has significant impact."
And there is one Christian leader that made it clear today that he does not agree with James Dobsons' idea of running a third party candidate if Giuliani gets the nomination. Pat Robertson, co-host of the 700 Club, endorsed Rudy Giuliani. "It is my pleasure to announce my support for America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, a proven leader who is not afraid of what lies ahead and who will cast a hopeful vision for all Americans," Robertson said.
Robertson, who ran for 1988 GOP presidential nomination, went onto say: "Rudy Giuliani took a city that was in decline and considered ungovernable and reduced its violent crime, revitalized its core, dramatically lowered its taxes, cut through a welter of bureaucratic regulations, and did so in the spirit of bipartisanship which is so urgently needed in Washington today." He said nothing of the fact the he and Giuliani disagree on social issues.
John McCain had this to say about Robertson's choice for President: "Every once in a while, I'm left speechless. This is one of those times."
