Skip to comments.(Conflict of interest vanity) Huckabee using his FNC spot to undermine 2012 rival Palin!

OK sorry for the vanity, but I'm darn frustrated at what I just saw on my favorite channel - FNC.
I've been a daily, loyal viewer since they came online and first begin their uphill struggle against then-dominant CNN. No fair weather viewer here. When I'm not watching FNC, usually I've got Fox Business Channel in the background. So it takes a lot for Fox to tee me off like this. But I'm plenty teed off:
(Embarrasingly obvious) Republican 2012 candidate wannabe Mike Huckabee, is filling in for BOR today.
So far so good. Huckabee works for Fox, fair and square. But he leads his guest spot with - a smear at Sarah Palin!
How does the (embarrasingly obvious) Hucakabee start the show? Taking note of the weekend Governor Palin decides to change direction - starting this weekend - to narrate she is "losing popularity".
Mike Huckabee should be better than this. And he should step up to the plate and offer a retraction.
Recuse himself, from this "story". It's transparent and distasteful.
It's unseemly, and inappropriate for Huckabee to so obviously be ABUSING his spot at FNC to try to game for campaign advantage in 2012.
Huckabee stepped over the line, IMHO. Someone over at Fox needs to reign him in just a bit.
/irritated FNC fan rant off
Go Fox. :)
Breathe in . . . breathe out .. . better???
No worries. This will come back to bite him if he’s not careful.
My intent exactly. :)
I agree and that is the first thing I thought as well. Huckabee strikes me as that type of church member who talks the good talk but then slanders you behind your back. The Palin episode has not aired yet I suspect he’ll make underhanded comments kinda like he tried to make an issue of Romney’s mormonism while claiming he wasn’t making as issue of it.
No one gives a damn about HuckaLoser. He can’t even raise money for his Pac. He lets people go cause they are not making any money. I twittered him and told him to get over himself, Sarah is POPULAR and he is YESTERDAY’S news. I expect better from Fox News but even they have gone a little left in the past few months. Pretty soon this will be my only place to get news from, because I have ZERO trust in the media
Yank Huckabee off the air.
Bad news. Bad ethics.
Huckabee should know about not being popular. He never was. The debates proved he’s nothing more than the whiny, ‘what about me’ jokester dork who never played with the big dogs.
Palin is right where she wants to be.
This is why I will not vote for Huckabee. He is the one that is a loser.
Part of the reason for Palin’s lower number (40% approve BTW) is because alot of people dont know the REAL STORY behind the so called ethics investigations. Many people just read the headlines and dont bother to real inform themselves about what going on there.
I’m sorry. I switched to NCIS on USA channel when I saw Chuklebee come up.....
Well Laura Ingraham is on vacation this week so they had to call the 3rd string.
Huckabee needs to be taken off the air! This is the scoundrel who gave us McCain. Had he dropped off the race, Romney would have won.
The people who can take care of Huck, are his fans. They can stop watching, and when he runs again, they can vote for someone else.
The Washington Compost poll is RIDICULOUS. I look at the Rasmussen poll and see all I have to see. 70+ percent approval from the GOP, 20 percent approval from Dems, and rising poll numbers with Independents. Rasmussen is MUCH more reliable then a newspaper that is in the tank for Obama. What next, a Huffington Post poll LOL
