So still another potential GOP candidate has bailed out.  Last night on his Fox news program, Governor Mike Huckabee announced that he would not be running  for 2012.  It was a curious announcement.  Huckabee spent three minutes explaining why he could win the nomination.  Then he spent 30 seconds saying he would not run — but giving no reason for refusing.

There is really only one conclusion.  Huckabee is afraid he could not beat Obama.  And so it is with the others.  Despite much importunity, Governor Christie of New Jersey refuses to get in.  So does Governor  Mitch Daniels of Kansas.

In every poll so far taken, President Obama wins over every GOP candidate.

Are the potential GOP candidates afraid of Obama?

What do you think?
