Joe Dugan, executive producer of the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention that will be held in Myrtle Beach from January 18th to the 20th, criticized former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee for supporting incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in an ad that ran on television networks in South Carolina during the Capital One Bowl Game Wednesday.

Lindsey Graham can hide all he wants (been quiet on the news front 6 months now - I’m hoping voters think “Lindsey Who?” come election time).

He’s a conniving appeaser liberal RINO and he should burn in Electoral Hell. Here’s hoping HUCK does no good for him.

You people in that state stay SHARP and MADDDDDDDDDD!!!!

From Sweet Lindsey’s paucity of appearances on the news nationally, I’d say he’s in real bad shape with his internal polls. Let’s hope it goes downhill from there.

Huckabee has been getting a considerable amount of push from the media about being a contender for 2016. They'd prefer him or Christie against Hillary.

His support of Gramnesty should help build some opposition.

They think we’re stupid out here. Like any conservative still thinks the Huck is someone they’d vote for.

Well, he HAS to officially say that because he is technically a broadcaster on FOX.

I know some solid Christian/conservatives who, because of his Christian background, believe the Huckster would make a great president. They are still out there.

He wouldn’t stay viable past Iowa. And to do that, you’d have to see him quit Fox news long about NOW....

Huckabee will be brought out to run in 2016 to help divide ‘social’ and ‘fiscal’ ‘conservatives’.

You'd be amazed at the number of otherwise politically-rational Baptists who absolutely refuse to believe anything negative about Mike Huckabee. They're just like Obama's core supporters; Huck is their substitute messiah.

Maybe, it should be about now, but sometimes Fox is flexible. Remember how in 2011 Santorum and Gingrich were pink slipped, written off the Fox Consultant list because they were campaigning. Sarah had that Tour Bus, Special Appearances and lots of face time, yet she was allowed to stay on the air, throughout the campaign. I’m sure Santorum was steamed about that.

+Unfortunately, that’s no different than saying “Like any conservative still thinks the Mittster is someone they’d vote for.”

They did. And Though Huck is a POS, he’s far more right wing than our former candidate. Believe it. They will drink the kool aid. There are still people here defending Mr. Guardasil “Heartless” Perry and saying he would make a great president.

There are plenty of people who just don’t think.

LG voted for Sotomayor and Kagan, He was also part of the RINO gang that refused to bust the filibuster to help Bush’s nominees to the judiciary.

Huckster has been in politics too long to know that everything he said in that ad could and would be used as an endorsement LATER on.

Thats because they haven’t a clue about Huckabee’s voting record.

They are CLUELESS!

Shucks is pro-amnesty, which is all that matters now.

So is Cornyn, who kept Lizard Murkowski alive, steering her to run indy in Alaska after being defeated by Joe Miller, TEA.

The GOPe intends to do us in this year.

And the RATS have likely offered their ‘fix is in’ vis-a-vis vote fraud to their RINO friends across the aisle.

We’re going to have to GOTV like never before and start rattling pots and pans now.

I can feel Sarah is working the ground... notice no polling for GOPe vs. TEA, the internals must be really, really bad for the establishment to go on this offensive against us.

Huckabee is a progressive narcissist. Huckabee is a fraud and always has been.

The original fat bastard of the RINO left. Now supplanted by Christie.

He may be a Christian, he may not, but he certainly has convinced a bunch of people that he's not the self-serving POS that he is.

too many people think that someone calling themselves christian makes them a good candidate to vote for...no one remembers Carter was proud to say he was a .....born again christian.
Gee, wasn’t he a great president....christians are suppose to be guileless as a lamb and wise as the serpent...they only remember the first part and forget to be smart as the serpent...

Is nearly every politician who is well known for Lindsey Graham? Even ol’ Strom would climb out of the grave to campaign for him if he could.

The TX Republican delegation is so liberal that Cornball is rated the third most conservative member. I presume Gohmert and Stockman are first or second. Ralph Hall, 90, who refuses to retire, is wall down the list at the bottom.

I know that but the pushback from the tea party movement has him already trying to do the back-stroke. That was the only point I was making.

It’s a good thing the Oklahoma and Auburn football teams aren’t run by rinos. They wouldn’t have shown up and Alabama would still be undefeated and playing for the National Champioship.

Yes they are out there. And the Huckster is counting on them to help
screw up the primaries for conservatives.
