Mike Huckabee to Common Core Creators: Rebrand, Don't Retreat
Breitbart ^ | Feb. 1, 2014 | Dr. Susan Berry

Posted on 02/21/2014 1:38:51 PM PST by Lucky9teen

Though former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told his Fox News Channel audience in early December he was no longer supporting the Common Core standards for which he had avidly campaigned, his message to one of the groups that created the standards was different.

According to The Washington Post, at a recent meeting of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), one of the organizations that created the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), Huckabee urged state education officials to get rid of the “Common Core” name because it has become “toxic.”

As the Post indicates, however, Huckabee still intends to support the standards.

“Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t retreat,” Huckabee reportedly told CCSSO members.

As Breitbart News reported in December, Huckabee, who is considered to be a Republican presidential hopeful in 2016, opened one of his shows by telling his audience that people have been posting on his Facebook page that they will never watch his show again because he supports the Common Core standards. Others, he said, have told him they could not trust him because of his support of the standards, and some said he needed to learn the truth about Common Core.

“I don’t support what Common Core has become in many states or school districts,” Huckabee said. “Look, I’m dead set against the federal government creating a uniform curriculum for any subject. I oppose the collection of personal data on students that would identify them and then track them, and certainly any effort to give that personal information to the federal government.”

“I am steadfast in my belief that parents – parents – should ultimately decide the best venue for their children’s education, whether it’s public schools, private schools, religious schools, or home schools,” Huckabee added.

For anyone who still supports THIS RINO, please be aware about who he really is. He is NOT a conservative. He is a PROGRESSIVE. This is what they do. They take something evil, and when people start realizing what it is, you change the name, but continue pushing it on.

CC is a Trojan Horse that rebranding can not fix.

It is ONLY a delivery mechanism for Liberal ideology.

Get off of it Mike!

Seriously? Lookie. I'm probably the only FReeper among tens of thousands who LIKES Huckabee. The GOPe could do (and is doing) a lot worse.

But I didn't know he was in bed with Common Core. Hoo Boy.

Look Huck. This is what needs to be done.

Just had lunch with my daughter who has 3 kids in or heading for the school system. She made me proud by mentioning what crap the Common Core crap is.

She spends lots of time with her kids and the 8-year old is in 3rd grade and reading at 7th grade levels. Good parenting can be a major factor in a id's education.

Huckabee is, and always has been, a self-serving snake in the grass. No conservative should allow himself/herself to be fooled by him.

We can fool the ignern’t hillbillies if we change the name.

These people really disgust me. The Huckster puts on his syrupy sweet country minister act and sets out to scam the people.

Jeb Bush was here in Michigan pimping common core last year. I was so proud of our state legislators soundly rejecting it.

Then they went back to Lansing, took a look around and noticed there were no reporters present and overwhelmingly approved it.

I would think so. He’s the Chairman of the National Governors Association. The same Association that The Common Core State Standards Initiative is coordinated by.

Huckster’s bread is being buttered by someone, and it’s not us. The guy is either ignorant of the CC indoctrination, or has thrown in with it, nude illustrations for grade school and all the rest.

Has he become bored with Christianity? Difficult to ride two horses, when both are going in opposite directions, Mike.

Rebrand? Rename? Sounds like Orwellian BS to me.

I’ve never trusted this fool.

A lost worse? You have to be kidding?

Huck-a-phony is as much a Statist as Romney, McCain, Christie, etc. He is a hard-care Statist who happens to be religious.

Huck-a-phony is NOT a Conservative.

“Look, I’m dead set against the federal government creating a uniform curriculum for any subject. I oppose the collection of personal data on students that would identify them and then track them, and certainly any effort to give that personal information to the federal government.”

I kinda thought that that is what “Common Core” is. Am I missing something here or is jus Huckster bloviating?

This is what Liars do.

Re-package it just means change the PR, but keep the program the same.

This should scare any thinking Christian to death and sicken each and every one of us where Huckabee is concerned.

He is a Lying Pretender of a Christian.

Christians don’t try and decieve.
