Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News Host Mike Huckabee

This endeavor sounds far superior than running for the Presidency.

Rush Limbaugh will soon have a new radio rival: Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who ran for the Republican presidential nomination four years ago and thought about running again this year.

Instead, he will be running a radio show weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. for Cumulus Media Networks. The company will announce “The Mike Huckabee Show” on Thursday and begin selling it to radio stations ahead of an April 2 start date.

Mr. Huckabee said he would continue hosting “Huckabee,” his weekend talk show on the Fox News Channel, as well as the short radio commentaries that Cumulus already distributes each day. Mr. Huckabee, who first worked in the radio business at age 14, said in a telephone interview that he was looking forward to the longer conversations that the three-hour radio format would allow.

If the radio show is embraced by stations and listeners, it will ensure that Mr. Huckabee remains heard by Republican voters for years to come. When asked if he would contemplate a presidential bid again, he began his answer by saying that the show was “an opportunity to comment on issues that are of great importance to me and, I think, the country.“

He continued, “If, a few years down the road, I see an opening, I don’t rule it out, but I’m not plotting a political return either.”

Well, Ronald Reagan forged his 1980 comeback from his 1976 loss by doing what?

Yes, that is correct – doing radio commentary.

Good luck on the new show, Mike.

George Will’s column is now posted.

Pretty brutal stuff…..

George Will “Romney is the Republican Party’s Michael Dukakis”

I wrote a few weeks ago why the Republican Party should NOT settle for Mitt Romney without eyes wide open.

George Will in a preview of this Sunday’s column drives the point home.

Romney, supposedly the Republican most electable next November, is a recidivist reviser of his principles who is not only becoming less electable, he might damage GOP chances of capturing the Senate: Republican successes down the ticket will depend on the energies of the tea party and other conservatives, who will be deflated by a nominee whose blurry profile in caution communicates only calculated trimming. Republicans may have found their Michael Dukakis, a technocratic Massachusetts governor who takes his bearings from ‘data’ … Has conservatism come so far, surmounting so many obstacles, to settle, at a moment of economic crisis, for THIS?

I, frankly, think there needs to be another candidate to face off against Mitt Romney in the upcooming primary elections. Mitt may win the nomination with the current field but, despite what the poll says today, will lose to President Obama.

Mitch Daniels, Rudy Giuliani or Mike Huckabee are all capable POLS who SHOULD challenge him. There should be an immediate DRAFT effort.

If the GOP were to nominate Romney anyway, then there you go. Don’t blame me for the epic loss to Obama and the failure to win back the U.S. Senate.

But, Republican voters really should have more choices.
