Now that Lucsly has seen what he's seen firsthand, he probably doesn't "really" think Kirk is so evil, just uses that as an excuse to justify his own ego. Lucsly needs somebody to look down on, and Kirk's it.
As for Spock: There's no one to recruit.
Who says they'd have to recruit Spock from 2387? Why not recruit him when he was much younger, similar to how Seven of Nine was recruited in "Relativity?" Spock from 2280 would work well.
