Kristol: Huckabee would beat Christie

Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard says Gov. Mike Huckabee would beat Gov. Christie right now for the Republican nomination. Do you agree with him?

    If the GOP stays true to form they will pre-select their candidate as they did with Mitt Romney. That means they will most likely pick Jeb Bush. There is no way on God's green earth that Jeb Bush is ever going to beat Hillary Clinton.

    Neither Huckabee OR Gingrich have a chance at defeating any national Democrat ... their political careers are over.

    All the Republicans have to do to win this nation back is to go back to Eisenhower strategies; raise taxes on the richest, raise the minimum wage, reduce the military industrial complex (search Ike and the Military industrial complex" to hear his speech) and support ANY universal health care product. Then they can put almost anyone in the Whitehouse.

    Go back and count the times Kristol is right, and wrong. He is wrong about 80% of the time. Why should anyone pay attention to these losers?

    Now this is crazy talk. The tea party would bring up how many murders Huckabee pardoned and he would be history and he knows it!!! Almost as bad as having an affair but not as enjoyable!!!

    Really? That's the choice you want the people to have? The GOP doesn't want to see the interior of the White House, unless invited to dinner.

    Gingrich? Did you not see how he placed in the last election? Newt is a dummy and has no knowledge of foreign affairs.

      He is near genius and has forgotten more about foreign affairs than you will ever know. His eccentricities don't make him ignorant.

    Newt Gingrich 2016 Newt is the only one who can defeat Hillary and put our Nation back together.
    No, Huckabee has mere micro support, like Christie, not broad based at all. Huckabee or Christie would be another notch in Rove's looser belt.... Dole, McCain, Rominee... How many more decades of proof are needed? RINO progressives can't win. Oh they can steal the GOP nomination to be the fall guy for democrats.. With the help of the media fraud and voter fraud.

      In what insane world is Mike "Evangelical Minister" Huckabee considered a "Moderate RINO"?

    Personally I preferred Huckabee over McCain and ever since then.
