The Huckster is a RINO, and throws around accusations of NAZI at those who call him a RINO

PERIOD

Then he is the LAST man you want to run. What is needed is a candidate that is going to get government OUT OF OUR LIVES! The huckster aint it.

You could spell that retard as well. The guy is a lightweight and a joke. Is he going to bring his guitar to the debates and sing?

Huckabee wants to harness the power of government to do “good”. Who’s good? His good.

He wants to use your money, and my money to do his good.

How does that “reach out” to Christian evangelicals. Unless Christian evangelicals are just stupid. Which some are judging by TBN.

Huck just needs to open an Insurance agency and sign up everyone in his church for Auto insurance and Whole Life Insurance.

Huck is the ultimate affinity marketing scammer. Overly sincere, excruciatingly boring and unimaginative. Ugh. Does Huck really think he can win anything other than the banjo wielding Ozarks crowd?

I know, he could open one of them snack handling churches then get bit, but be just fine!

I was going to say, a snack handling church sounds pretty good to me. Not as good as a full blown chicken dinner church but if they have Cheetos or Ruffles with onion dip that’s nothing to sneeze at.

I am a Christian Evangelical, and Lindsay Grahams pet shill isn’t an outreach. The most reaching Chucklebee does is to reach for your furniture when he leaves.

No matter how much you don’t like the Huckster, you should never call him that. You can call him “special special needs”, or “developmentally challenged”. You sir should never ever use the “r” word around our “most special politician”.

Shame on you! (little smirk here ;)

Just waiting to see if other Republican presidential contenders will seek out Christian support.

Reagan won in 2 landslides cause he didn’t ignore Christian voters.

Uhm K.

No.

Sure, sure. He’ll sell his candidacy as one that seeks to shape policy objectives and make the tent bigger and more inclusive .

I know..Carter didn’t ignore them either.

Dole, the Bushes, Mccain and Romney didn’t do to well after ignoring Christian evangelicals.

The Huckster wants the word “RINO” removed from the discourse. I think I know why lol.

I thought Ted Cruz was a Christian - much better choice.

Walker/Cruz 2016

Get governnent OUT OF OUR LIVES.

The Huckster was one who wanted to regulate one’s food choices. As we all know, when elected, this morphs into other regulations.
American’s also are worried about jobs and the economy and his speech was centered around abortion. Wrong move at this time when you want to be elected

The last thing we need is Huck peeling Christian evangical voters away from voting for an actual conservative.

Just as with Christie, it’s probably good for 2016 that Huck has stepped in it like this.

Women go to their doctors for birth control. With Obamacare they are forced to pay for all kinds of coverage (e.g., sex change, ED) they will never need. It’s not surprising that it would be popular with them to have what they actually go to the doctor for covered as well.

By being laughably on the wrong side of this issue, Huck is hurting the conservative cause overall, however, which is unfortunate.

Walker’s a huge pro-amnesty guy—I don’t want him anywhere near the presidency.

AKA a statist.

Yes, of course he’s running for President. And no, he won’t win the GOP nomination.

But what he’s really good at is siphoning off enough low-information voters of the Evangelical persuasion to ensure that the establishment-backed candidate faces a divided conservative base.
