Skip to comments.Huckabee Promotes GOP-E, Demeans Conservatives
Posted on 12/29/2013 5:41:11 AM PST by xzins
I've noticed for a while now that Huckabee has picked up the meme of the GOP-E that conservatives are injuring the Republican Party. That was the point of liberal Scot Brown on his show this week...normalizing a liberal. I've also noticed a few articles saying the Hucklebug is again interested in running for office. This probably means that Huck knows where the moneyed cronies are and has to curry favor with them.
I've watched, and I always come away with the impression that the huckleberry points the finger at conservatives, at those who would primary the GOP establishment turncoats, and at the foolishness of conservative positions....except of course when it benefits his talking points of the week, Duck Dynasty, for example.
I know, though, that Huck would've blasted Phil Robertson if that's the way the wind had blown.
So, if you want another unprincipled establishment lapdog, then help promote huck, a former, sort of conservative.
I think the moneyed cronies took Huck in a back room and told him to run to draw away the conservatives, splitting the vote away from any true conservative.
I like that your post continues to expose Huckster for what he is .but I have to point out a major major major difference between Scott Brown and Huck. Brown is from Mass, and Huck from Arkansas and geography matters. Brown is very conservative compared to the entire population of Massachusetts ..and he’s the best senator we’ve had from that state in our lifetime. Period.
Huckster is just a phony, a fraud, and a pro life liberal, who I bet fooled a TON of Freepers in 08.
Brown is a phoney and carpetbagger,
now fleeing to ... NH, as Romney’s GOPe toadie.
You forgot to mention he LOVES illegal aliens!
Wants to give them everything free and let the STUPID American Tax Payer foot the bill
And they are..........................
NOW is the time to start going back to church, Pray for America, and TALK TO YOUR PASTOR!!
Pastors Urge Huckabee to Run
The Country you save may be your own!!
I wrote a research paper for a “Religion and Politics” course back in the early 80’s noting that religious people have a variety of views and could be swayed to the Left or Right.
The Republican Party sucked in millions of evangelical Christians in the late 70’s and 80’s many of whose ancestors were happy voting for FDR, Woodrow Wilson and William Jennings Bryan, not exactly conservatives on economics.
Not being conservative is in Mike Huckabee’s Arkansas “genes” so to speak.
We can hear a rumor of one of those who purport to be on our side, of making an un-conservative comment to an audience that might be able to provide funds and is wiling to fund conservatives that don't sound to radical. Our first action is to pile on because it "proves" that this person is a RINO/unclean/unworthy, etc.
We handcuff our guys while the other side has unfettered permission to use whatever guile it takes to stay funded and garner support. We have adopted the fighting tactics that got the British creamed during the revolution while the other side has adopted tactics more along the lines of Sun-Tzu...
The Achilles heel of any politician and most preachers is other peoples money. And the unlearned lesson of President Reagan was the idea that it is just flat out wrong to enslave the masses via taxation/mandates without representation. The majority of politicians and most preachers using whatever means necessary seek to gain control over other peoples money.
There is nothing Godly about social justice using taxation/mandates without representation to feign compassion.
Huckabee is a huckaboob.
The Huckster won't be winning any National elections. McCain screwed that pooch but good.
Nah, Brown is not a phony .he is what he is a Mass Republican .which is not the answer to our problems but it’s not the problem either. Complete states full of liberal idiots are the problem.
The sad thing is ..often pastors as a group are among the most politically ignorant folks I know. They always fall like suckers for the candidate who simply “thumps the Bible” the hardest in the campaign. This is RARELY the candidate who will actually win or who will actually understand the completeness of the conservative message - which will allow us to walk out our faith in our own homes, business, lives in freedom.
Huck and Santorum are both unnerving in their support of liberal populist economic causes, unions, and the GOP e.
Huckabee has played his cards and we all know that he is a finger-to-the-wind kind of guy. That doesn’t speak to much conviction and I’d prefer a principled man of conviction. Let’s be honest. Any staunch conservative will never get all they want, but having a staunch conservative raises the chances of getting more rather than less. Having a moderate means we have more of the same as we do now, maybe slower, maybe not. So, aim higher. This is an argument for those who believe a staunch conservative will run away and make everything far right. It didn’t happen under Reagan, and it had a better chance of it then than now.
The Huckster never disappoints.
He hasn’t changed. He’s the same as he was the first time he ran.
He’s a progressive republican’t.
Huckabee should stick to playing the Guitar.
We Conservatives need our own party, The GOP doesn’t want us.
Always trace the money trail.
Bottom line. In Conservative leaning states, we MUST have conservative representatives. In liberal states, we hold our noses for the Scott Brown’s.
In purple states, we fight to the death for the Conservative, but need to hold our nose for the squish if that’s the case.
First things first. Graham and Cornyn must go.
I think we delude ourselves when we believe that a blue state like NJ will have a conservative senator appointed by a squish governor. Or for that matter having a conservative win the election. In those cases, we need to bankrupt the left and go Alinsky on them, making it as painful as possible for them to keep the seat.
