6. the writer of this comment "gets it"
"The GOP has been hijacked by neo-con Wall Street globalists. They might talk a good game, but they could care less about the social values issues. They only care about how to incease their already fat financial portfolios, and those of their friends. G.W. Bush is one of them. Mitt Romney is one of them. Rudy Giuliani is one of them. Mike Huckabee is not one of them and he appeals to the vast MAJORITY of GOP VOTERS. The middle class, blue collar workers, social conservatives and religious voters that were brought into the Republican Party by Ronald Reagan. The current power-brokers of the RNC and their minions (Drudge, Rush, Hugh, Hannity, Ingraham, etc...) are just carrying the water of the elites...and the elites wanted to shove Romney down the people's throats. Guess what? They fooled them with G.W. Bush...but the people got wise. They aren't going to vote for Huckabee because of his religion. They are going to vote for him because he is a populist...just like Reagan was when he brought in the great unwashed to the GOP and gave them numbers of voters they had never seen before. The current batch of GOP elites have tried their best to squander away those numbers by marginalizing "the folks". Guess what? The folks want their party, and their country, back."
