Pro Choice Group to Target Romney

The pro choice group Republican Majority for Choice will start running ads in Iowa and New Hampshire targeting Mitt Romney as a flip flopper on abortion. Romney sought and received the endorsement of the group when he ran for governor in 2002.

"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."

McCain: Not everyone here illegally should be deported

Republican presidential candidate John McCain does not believe that all illegals in America should be deported.

"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: GOP Must Unite Members

Howard Fineman of MSNBC says that if the Republicans can't unite libertarians, evangelicals and hawks in 2008 they will lose the presidential election.

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.

Kucinich Would Like Ron Paul VP

Long shot liberal Democratic candidate Dennis Kucinich says that Ron Paul would be a good choice for Vice President.

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."

Paul Gets Support of Nevada Prostotute Business

It looks like Ron Paul could face some trouble in his already long shot bid for President, which has been building some momentum.

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."

Huckabee Launches 2nd Ad

Rising Republican candidate Mike Huckabee has another TV ad ready for use. This is his second one and I think it is the better of the two so far:

Barr May Get in Race

Austine Cassidy of Third Party Watch reports that a reliable source has told him that former congressman Bob Barr may run for the Libertarian nomination for President. "Though I don’t have any concrete details as of yet, the rumor is that former Congressman Bob Barr is now openly considering a Presidential bid on the Libertarian ticket," says Cassidy.

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.

Dobbs Considering Candidacy

Lou Dobbs of CNN has confirmed that he is considering making an independent run for President.

MSNBC reports:

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: 'Guaranteed Not To Spoil '

Conservative indpenent presidential candidate Steve Adams says in his most recent blog article that he and his running mate Bob Hargis are "guaranteed not to spoil."

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?"

Huckabee Gets Backing of Pro Life Leader

Tom Glessner, who is the head of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, has announced that he is supporting Mike Huckabee for President.

Glessner said:

"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."

Clymer Reacts to Robertson's Giuliani Endorsement

“Pat Robertson has clearly sold out. By endorsing Giuliani, Robertson asks his followers to rally around a man who is the standard-bearer for all that is repugnant to them," says Constitution Party Chairman Jim Clymer.

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”

McKinney Ends Presidential Campaign, Running for US Rep

Ray McKinney has ended his long shot bid for the Republican presidential nomination to run for Congress in Georgeia's 12th district.

"Like most novice candidates who start at the top, he found it difficult to be taken seriously," says Larry Peterson of the Savannah Morning News.

On his campaign site, which is currently under construction, McKinney is quoted as saying: "We are in a point and time where every vote matters! We cannot lose...not today...not now. The cost is too high."

McKinney placed ahead of John McCain and Sam Brownback in the Texas Straw Poll on September 1 and also made two appearances on This Is Politics including one debate.

Today Fred Thompson received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee.

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."

Baldwin: 'Christians need to beware of Mike Huckabee'

"...Is Mike Huckabee someone Christian conservatives should be supporting?" Possible 2008 Constitution Party presidential candidate Rev. Chuck Baldwin asks in his latest column, published on Alan Keyes' Renew America website.

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.

McCain and Giuliani Get Major Endorsements

Today two Republican presidential candidates received big name endorsements.

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."

Thompson: No Ban on Abortion

Cox No Longer A Candidate

I just found out that John Cox is no longer a presidential candidate. Looking at the list on Wikipedia of candidates to be included in the debates I saw that Cox quit the race on October 27.

He said before that he would stay in the race until after the South Carolina primary, he has already paid the $25,000 or $35,000 (depending when he filed) to be on their ballot.

There is no mention of this on Cox's campaign website.
