Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Monday that Mitt Romney may be the Republican Party's "most electable" presidential candidate and dinged Texas Gov. Rick Perry for comparing Social Security to a "criminal enterprise."
Huckabee's endorsement remains one of the most coveted among Republicans this election season, as the former pastor brought droves of evangelical Christians to the polls for his 2008 presidential run.
On Monday, Huckabee noted what some see as another potential hurdle for Perry: his seeming likeness to President George W. Bush, the last Texas governor to occupy the White House.
"It gives the Democrats the opportunity to say, 'If you like George W. Bush, you're going to love Rick Perry,' " Huckabee said on Laura Ingraham's radio show. "True or not, if I was a Democratic strategist, that's what I'd be saying every doggone day."
Huckabee's support remains strong among social conservatives...."

huckster is a socialist... I do not like nor do I listen to socialists... especially a pos socialist like huckster.
If Mitt is the GOP choice then I am willing to wager that he is going to have a tough go of it next year without the conservative base behind him at the polls.
(Rhetorical question) Why do they keep saying Mutt is ‘most electable’? He doesn’t poll well in national polls, only in straw polls where he can bus in people. In the last election, the votes he got never even came close to representing his polling numbers. Overall he is trending downward. His likeability scores are low. If it weren’t for Ron Paul, he would be the poster child of not meeting expectations.
The dumba$$ thought he was electable.
If Huckabee endorses Mitt he will lose a lot of his audience.
“Milt” Romney, LOL. Isn’t that Mitt’s long lost Jewish brother?
Both of them?
He doesn't really believe what he's saying, but he's pissed at Perry for not endorsing him when he ran in the last election.
