Skip to comments.Bork: “I don’t think that Senator McCain or Governor Huckabee deserves to be called a conservative.”
Posted on 01/11/2008 4:32:44 PM PST by Def Conservative
Judge Bork said that if one of them is the nomination, the conservative moment is in trouble, because "neither one of them is remotely a conservative."

Bork endorsed Romney.
The Republican are enjoying a renaissance of pure stupidity. If the polls are still reading Huckabee and McCain, we are headed for a hard landing.
Michael Medved is for open borders...
That’s probably why he supports Huckabee.
Gives new meaning to the expression “getting Borked.” :-)
Medved doesn’t like Romney for two reasons:
Romney ran as a liberal in Massachusetts then pretended to be a conservative in Iowa, and is now back to running as a moderate in Michigan.
Romney ran a negative campaign, and all the other candidates in the race really dislike him.
McCain and Huckabee are not conservatives.
Bork isn’t either.
He thinks the 2nd amendment is a collective not individual right, and called the 9th amendment a meaningless “ink blot.”
He won’t get any argument about that from me.
Too bad Bork supports another liberal, by the name of Romney, though.....
That’s JUDGE Pressler!
it takes one to know one,
mickey and huck are not conservatives.
And that they will do.
He is also supporting McCain..who is even more open borders than Huckabee. For that reason and his obsession with the Middle East is why I no longer listen his program. He loves “disagreement day” so much but ironically never invites an educated person on his show to debate him on the open borders amnesty plan.
Bork is right on those two but he forgot to include his guy Romney in the list. I keep thinking of the intro of the Million Dollar man when I see Romney. I can’t figure out where the conservative begins and artifice begins. I’m not voting for Massachusetts Republican who believes that Boys scouts should be forced to admit gays and who has a health care plan that looks like he copied it from Hillary Clinton. Huckabee, Romney, McCain, and Rudy all lack conservative chutzpah.
Fred Thompson talks the talk and walks the walk. That’s what I want. I have yet to hear the others criticize teachers unions or the ACLU or the blame America first crowd. Huckabee has expressed his desire to have a love fest with the left and Romney is trying to talk the “change” language of the left. McCain on the other hand has probably cosponsered more bills with Ted Kennedy than anyone else in the Senate outside of the Democrat party.
|It's Rush Limbaugh's assertion, made today, that Fred Thompson is the only conservative in the race.

Now that’s what I call being Borked! Good for him.
Of all the major candidates Romney is running the most conservative platform and campaign. Of course he has flipped flopped on important issues, however I will give him a pass given he was in one of the most left-wing states in the union. The other candidates do not have a conservative record either, and frankly there is no excuse for Republicans from states like Arizona, Arkansas and Tennessee to be caving in to the left wing agenda.
Well, we can be absoultely certain they will do that after the nomination ... the question is, will they do it while he still has a chance (in their eyes).
My thoughts exactly. If a statist like Bork can’t call those two conservatives...
Exactly, Romney changed to conservative...rather you believe him or not is a different issue. Huckabee, Giuliani and McCain haven’t changed their true positions.
And not hyphenated-conservatives either. Call them what they are - "centrists" or "moderates" or RINOS.
You can be more descriptive too. Huckabee is a Christian populist (with socialist leanings). McCain is...damn...I dunno what McCain is. Sometimes he deserves more than a hyphen, but sometimes he is not even remotely hyphen worthy; I would say that he has no ideological grounding that could be consistently associated with any political group. He is almost like a corporeal manifestation of MSM bias.
Stay classy, Solov!
It would seem that McCain has become skilled at playing off conservatism and claiming allegiance from some conservatives on some points and from “independents” and even liberals on many others.
George Allen (the man who is supposed to be winning this race) is with Fred and called Huckabee like he is on Levin last night.
Michael Medved and Frank Rich should stick to movie reviews. When addressing the world of politics, they both sounds like morons.
Bork is not a conservative, either.
Fred will be on Hannity and Colmes tonight 9:00PM Eastern. GO FRED!
Experts: Credit Romney for homosexual marriage 'What he did was exercise illegal legislative authority'
"What Romney did [was] he exercised illegal legislative authority," Herb Titus said of the governor's actions after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court released its opinion in the Goodridge case in 2003. "He was bound by what? There was no order. There wasn't even any order to the Department of Public Health to do anything."
That's not a conservative position.
Implementing RomneyCare is also not a conservative position, it's socialistic health care.
Romney has by far and away appointed liberals to the bench. That is also not a conservative position.
Governor Romney appointed 36 judges but a check of their political affiliation confirms that only 9 of them are Republicans. Two are radical gay activists and 14 are registered Democrats. The remainder are unenrolled. Since Massachusetts Democrats are among the most pro-abortion Democrats in America, we have to assume that the majority of Romney's judicial appointments are NOT pro-life.
The article, above-cited, lists additional concerns that conservatives have with Romney and who he claims to be.
I think Ann Coulter is for Duncan Hunter. I can understand that as I also like Hunter. It is just that he does not have a chance this time so I hope he is in the Thompson administration.
McCain= part time conservative + part time liberal
I love Fred.
I can live with Mitt or Rudy.
McCain and Huckabee are vermin. If either is the nominee I will forgo my suffrage for the first time in my life. I will not vote for a socialist, regardless of the letter next to their name on a ballot.
“I think Ann Coulter is for Duncan Hunter.”
You’re right, but Hunter has as much of a chance as I do to win the presidency.
When Huck or Mitt is fighting it out at the convention, wouldn’t it have been nice it Coulter and all the other idealists had thrown their support behind the guy who at is currently winning delegates? I like Hunter too, but practicism over blind idealism.
Why don't you shut your political pie hole?
"1606 is needed because federal courts have ordered the Federal Election Commission to regulate "electioneering communications" on the Internet because of the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act (McCain-Feingold). If H.R. 1606 fails to become law, your Web site or blog could be shut down for the 30 days prior to a primary election and the 60 days prior to a general election should you express "electioneering communications."
I won’t vote for any RINO, that includes Rudy McRombee
I agree with your assessment all the way!
