Another Super Tuesday post, picking up on the theme of the one below. . .
Does this guy make sense in arguing that conservatives should support even an ideologically-imperfect candidate rather than going over to the Democrats, voting for a third-party candidate, or sulking and staying home?
Let us grant that each of the three remaining Republican candidates have their flaws: Huckabee is a strong Christian, but with welfare state tendencies. Mitt Romney is a Mormon who has recently had a somewhat suspicious political “conversion” to conservatism. John McCain is a mainline Christian who says he “doesn’t like social issues” and is strong on national defense and fiscal responsibility, while weak on immigration and freedom of speech.
How do you balance these pro’s and con’s to come to the lesser of three evils? Interestingly, we have had virtually no overt advocacy of Romney on this blog. Will someone make the case for him? And for Huckabee and McCain? I really want you to help me think through all of this, since I vote next Tuesday!
