Search For The Real Conservative Continues

Conservatives seem to be staggering around in the dark looking for the real conservative candidate to vote for in the 2008 Presidential election.
In the Fox News Debate, Chris Wallace opened the questioning with the question yet to be answered... "Who is the most conservative Republican candidate?"

We know it's certainly not Rudy or McCain, ...and Mitt Romney's stance on guns, stem cell research and socialized healthcare disqualify him as a real conservative. Fred Thompson comes close but also fails the test on a couple of issues like leaving abortion up to the states. Many also wonder about Thompson's health and energy level for a job that ages men like a time machine. Ron Paul isn't even a Republican and so the media's newest darling Mike Huckabee has been dubbed the real conservative in the race.
However, in his Washington Post piece today, Bob Novak confirms what many of us already knew... Mike Huckabee is not a true conservative by any measure.
The False Conservative:

Who would respond to criticism from the Club for Growth by calling the conservative, free-market campaign organization the "Club for Greed"? That sounds like Howard Dean, Dennis Kucinich or John Edwards, all Democrats preaching the class struggle. In fact, the rejoinder comes from Mike Huckabee, who has broken out of the pack of second-tier Republican presidential candidates to become a serious contender -- definitely in Iowa and perhaps nationally.

Huckabee is campaigning as a conservative, but serious Republicans know that he is a high-tax, protectionist advocate of big government and a strong hand in the Oval Office directing the lives of Americans. Until now, they did not bother to expose the former governor of Arkansas as a false conservative because he seemed an underfunded, unknown nuisance candidate. Now that he has pulled even with Mitt Romney for the Iowa caucuses and might make more progress, the beleaguered Republican Party has a frightening problem. (...more)

You know that old saying that often times 'what we are seeking the most is usually right under our noses all the time'?
There is only one candidate that nobody dares question his conservative credentials.
One candidate that has no skeletons in the closet, no hidden agenda and no crazy conspiracy theories to explain.
There is one candidate who not only served in Vietnam, but his son has served in Afghanistan and Iraq as well.
One candidate who not only says he will secure the borders but has actually built the only fence along the border to secure the border... and it works!
One candidate who has been named "The Republican Wing of the Republican Party" by the Missouri Republican Assembly.

So the real question is ...when are these conservatives like Bob Novak, Sean Hannity and the rest going to discover Duncan Hunter?
More importantly, when are YOU going to discover Duncan Hunter?
Hopefully not after it's too late.
