All we've got so far is a tweet from this guy, but it's obviously pretty big, if true. Evidence he's been angling for the VP slot all along, and thinks Mitt's his best chance of getting the nod?

Quote:
Sources indicate Mike Huckabee is set to endorse Mitt Romney, adding another key element to Romney's Iowa strategy. Stay tuned

This might put a little damper on the flames:

Quote:
@McCormackJohn Oh. Snap. MT @SarahHuckabee: @stevescully just wondering, who are your sources? // mine tell me Huckabee unlikely to endorse in the primary


Someone's going to have some serious 'splaining to do!!

And now the definitive denials from Huckabee himself start rolling in:

Quote:
@jaketapper Huckabee definitively tells me the story he's endorsing Romney tomorrow is false. "I am NOT endorsing ANYONE in the primary," he emails.


Quote:
@jaketapper Huckabee: "Nothing of the sort--the 'source' is an uninformed total idiot. Quote me."

The truth is still tying to get its boots on as this lie gallups fully around the world in nano-seconds.

Nothing new & obviously not an endorsement here - more like an endorsement of the ABO nominee. The last line is really annoying since we all know that Huck would make the same statement regardless of his viability as a VP pick & is hardly sucking up (& puhleeze, if this is sucking up, then Huck obviously doesn't know how to do it right! :lol: ).

Mike Huckabee tells conservatives to prepare to back Mitt Romney

By Rachel Rose Hartman | The Ticket – Mon, Nov 21, 2011.
Romney (Haraz N. Ghanbari/AP)

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on Sunday became the latest pundit to concede that while Mitt Romney may not be the perfect candidate, conservatives should prepare to support him as their nominee.

As Ben Smith reported, when Huckabee was asked Sunday by 77WABC New York "Investigative Radio" host Aaron Klein to comment on whether the tea party will sit out the 2012 election if former Massachusetts Gov. Romney is the Republican nominee, Huckabee responded with the following:

It would be real tragic if they stayed out because Mitt Romney may not be their first choice, but Mitt Romney every day of the week and twice on Sunday is gonna to be a much more effective president for issues that they care about than Barack Obama. And I think sometimes there is this anxiety within the Republican Party of who is the perfect candidate. The answer is: there isn't one. And so, what you find is you have to decide who can survive the process. And whoever that is-- and if it's Mitt Romney, then I think Republicans and conservatives and tea party need to get behind him and say, 'You may not be our first choice, but between you and Obama, I'll vote forty times to help get you elected.'

Huckabee's comments are the latest indication conservatives are readying one another to "hold their noses" and vote for Romney, who opponents on both sides of the aisle paint as the most moderate major Republican candidate in the 2012 race.

Last week, it was conservative pundit Ann Coulter who was dispensing the "get ready for Romney" advice.

"Everyone knows the nominee is going to be Romney," Coulter wrote in a column for Townhall Nov. 16. "That's not so bad if you think the most important issues in this election are defeating Obama and repealing Obamacare."

Myra Adams wrote for conservative PJ Media last month that "GOP primary voters must seriously consider who has the potential for wide national appeal in blue and purple states enough to make Obama a one-term president."

"And by 'holding their noses' a second time and voting for Romney in the general election, they will be rewarded by breathing in the sweet smell of victory on the evening of November 6th , 2012."

Of course, one major thing that sets other conservative thinkers apart from Huckabee is that Huckabee stands to personally benefit from praising and supporting Romney--the former governor is still regarded as a potential vice presidential pick, especially for someone looking to add conservative credentials to their ticket.

So what happened here? I suspect that somebody (some journalist/blogger, or aid in a campaign) purposely fabricated the lie to intentionally elicit a denial from Huckabee.

I've not been paying too much attention to politics anymore now that I don't have a horse in the race. I did hear Huckabee make some of the comments in this article. The title has been proven to be way off...but the author sure had one thing right: the former governor is still regarded as a potential vice presidential pick, especially for someone looking to add conservative credentials to their ticket.

IMHO Romney will need Huckabee as his VP if he wants any real chance to beat Obama.
