Movement conservatives are rallying behind Mitt Romney as the conservative alternative to John McCain. But here are reasons to think that Romney is alsonot really a conservative.
Huckabee has been accused of departing from the true political faith based largely on some things he did as governor, such as raising taxes. But what Romney did as governor–on abortion, stem cell research, gay marriage, gun restrictions, and a health care plan virtually identical to Hillary Clinton’s–does not get that kind of conservative scrutiny. Surely Huckabee was a far more conservative governor than Romney ever was.
