This was a surprise. From the Hunter statement:
"I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail," said Hunter. "Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China's emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of Americas industrial base."
"Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee's candidacy that compels my endorsement. Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity. I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed. The other Republican candidates have many strengths and I wish them all well. My personal choice is Mike Huckabee," Hunter concluded.
Even Hunter was schnookered.
This is going to make a few heads explode here on FR!
I think I just lost all respect for Mr. Hunter.
...getting out the popcorn...
I am one of those exploding heads!
And then people wonder why certain radio talk show hosts don’t endorse people...
Ouch! I don’t like this at all...
Is this true?
This can only mean he wants the VP spot. I cannot fathom any other reason why a true conservative would endorse Huckabee.
I was more of a Duncan Hunter fan before I read this.
I guess it was a good thing he dropped out - our Presidents need better judgment than this.
ut oh... not a good move on Duncan’s part.
At least it wasn’t McCain.
Why he endorsed the one candidate who is most likely to lose and can’t really do any favors. I am not sure if I agree with Rep. Hunters endorsement but it was clearly based on principle and not on politics.
I keep pinching myself, hoping to wake up from this nightmare. There are NO good choices in this election!!! It’s all a dream...it’s GOT to be a dream....
Pissant is going to have a heart attack!
