My esteemed friend and colleague Robert Ringer, author of some of the biggest-selling books in modern American history and always insightful analyst, last week wrote a column with the provocative headline, “The most dangerous man in America?”
Like everyone else, I had to click on that one to find out who that was.
Much to my surprise, it was not Barack Obama.
It wasn’t Harry Reid.
It wasn’t Louis Farrakhan.
It wasn’t Jerry Brown.
It wasn’t even Chris Coons.
It wasn’t anyone I might have considered.
Do you know who it was?
It was Mike Huckabee.
Now, I have to tell you, I’ve never thought of Mike Huckabee as the most dangerous man in America. Ringer makes the case that he is a threat because he is the most gifted politician in the country today – charming, funny, good communicator. He’s also a threat, he says, because he could put together a coalition of evangelicals and disaffected Democrats to win the presidency.
Don’t miss Joseph Farah’s newest book, “The Tea Party Manifesto: A Vision of American Rebirth,” in which he sets out a clear agenda for the movement he predicted would arise in response to Barack Obama.
While Mike Huckabee has never been at the top of my list of presidential candidates, I have never lost a wink of sleep fretting about him becoming president.
There is, however, someone in the Republican wings, a frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination, by any standard, who worries me sick.
His name is Mitt Romney.
If Mitt Romney were to become the next president, America would be done as an experiment in freedom. We would see this 235-year experiment in liberty perish before our eyes. That’s a guarantee.
What we need in 2012 is a president who is ready, willing and able to overturn all of Barack Obama’s misdeeds and then some. As president, Mitt Romney would ensure that would never happen. That’s his track record. He’s a Republican appeaser – even worse. He himself proudly instituted Obamacare in Massachusetts as governor. He still boasts about it today.
Mitt Romney is the most dangerous man in America today because he is the only GOP presidential contender about whom I can make such an unequivocal statement. If he wins, we lose. America’s toast.
I’m serious about this.
All the positive energy that was stirred up throughout middle America because of Obama’s misdeeds will have nowhere to be channeled if he’s the nominee.
Honestly, if he’s the nominee, America’s only hope will be revolution.
Romney is an establishment fixer.
He would be the perfect stooge to follow Obama. He’d be the one step backward to Obama’s two steps forward.
That’s what I was hoping that my friend Robert Ringer would be saying in his column about the “most dangerous man in America.” That’s why I was shocked about Huckabee!
I have some significant differences with Huckabee.
But he’s not a monster. He’s not a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Romney is.
I wouldn’t vote for Romney if he ran against Satan himself for president.
He needs to be the one candidate that faithful, liberty-loving Republicans agree can never be the nominee. His track record of flip-flopping on the major issues of the day is a disqualifier. No one is perfect, but Romney is perfectly awful. I would have expected my friend Robert Ringer to notice that.
I am hoping, as we get closer to 2012, that discerning Republicans heed this warning.
I intend to do everything in my power to alert the American electorate to the threat he poses.
This is not hyperbole: Mitt Romney is the most dangerous man in America today.
We have an electrifying opportunity to take America back in a few short years, to return to constitutional government, to reorient ourselves to limited government, to self-government. Mitt Romney represents the antithesis of all that. We won’t likely get another chance if he is elected.
