it’s actually not so shocking. Before deciding on Fred, I also considered Hunter. I didn’t just want to vote for Fred because of the polls and the big name.
But the real story was that Hunter was also a big nanny stater, loves pork spending and against free trade. He is for the fair tax. They think alike on many issues.
No, but I’m disappointed.
And to think I actually liked this guy.
Maybe Hunter’s a closet Mormon-hater.
I thought that was The Cube from the Transformers movie.
Somebody needs to run and check on Ann Coulter...the president of the Duncan Hunter groupie fan club. Take away her firearms.
“Vote for McCain.”
I’d crawl across broken glass to vote agaqinst him.
This is rich....hey Hunter supporters he endorsed the Huckster!!!
How's it feel.
Sadly I was also a Hunter supporter...

What difference would it make? Which one is worse?
Loyalty and respect are not transferable.
Hunter is strongly pro-life and Huckabee is also strongly pro-life. Hunter is very worried about China - Huckabee is the only remaining candidate who seems to share any of his concerns about China. Also, while Huckabee has a horrible record on immigration he has adopted a platform on immigration with many similarities to Duncan Hunters. So, he is as believable on immigration as Romney is on abortion. Huckabee and Hunter also share a passion for protecting the second amendment. It is for these reasons that I am sure that Hunter endorsed Huckabee. Obviously Huckabee is not a perfect choice but given the options it was about as good of one as he could have made. I knew he wouldn’t endorse Romney due to Bain capital and its dealings with China and there was no way that he was going to endorse Mr. Amnesty or the pro-abortion Giuliani.
OMG! I LOVE Nelson!! LOL
I named my dog after him!
>> Vote for McCain.
PI$$ up a rope, shill.
Since Jan 13, 2008
Put a .357 to my head and the answer is still "no way in hell".
How’s it feel for Thompson to drop out?
ping for later
I think a lot is going to happen before this election is over and you never know what the candidates may do. Personally it still won’t get me to vote for the Huckster but Hunter may know something I don’t.
The Minutemen did not endorse. One of their founders did; It isn’t the same thing.
Yes, even my beeber is stuned.
How do you feel about Hunter now? I know you can’t stand Huckabee.
And I think you were the poster that recently said Romney and Hunter were seen on the trail a lot together, and that maybe we’d see a Romney/Hunter ticket.
Guess this puts an end to that.
At least FRed had the good sense to not endorse anyone, at least not yet.
No wonder Hunter went nowhere. His judgement appears to be less than perfect.
Bet he won't support the Huckster tho....:-)
Maybe Hunter wants to be Sec of Def in a Huckster Admin.
You bet. I didn’t see this coming at all. Huckabee doesn’t exude confidence in me most especially in foreign affairs. Another Jimmy Carter I’d suspect. Regardless of who he would place as SECSOS I don’t think he would go without tinkering.
Frankly, with him and Thompson gone, what was he supposed to do with so many foul choices?
It goes to show he’s at least anti-hypocrat.
“I do find it interesting that Hunter considered Romney “disqualified” from his endorsement because Mitt’s former company is doing business in China, but he’s A-OK with endorsing a nanny-state Christian Socialist.”
Totally agree...I saw hunter on cavuto the other day when he said this and I scratched my head on it, for sure.
And I’m voting Tuesday (not early) in Florida, as is most everyone else I know,and we’re all going for Romney.
Unfrigginbelievable! Hardly knew, ya, Duncan.
Let’s see, even if half of his supporters followed his advice, that’s 0.15%... hahahaha. This guy is such a loser.
“Somebody needs to run and check on Ann Coulter...the president of the Duncan Hunter groupie fan club. Take away her firearms.”
LOL. Ah yes. Humble pie is especially delicious with a heaping pile of irony.
Which terrible candidate do you think Hunter should have endorsed instead?
Huck did recently sign a pledge for 'No Amnesty' at NumbersUSA (if that counts for anything)
Hunter endorses Jimmy Carter! (same thing)
You said -”What on earth makes you so certain of this?? Hunter may be a conservative, but he’s been in Washington long enough to have plenty of the politician in him. It’s a very strange choice of endorsement, especially since Huck hasn’t been doing so well and is out of money.”
My Reply - this is exactly why this endorsement was not based on politics. If Hunter wanted political favors he would have sold his endorsement to the candidate who could offer him the most. Someone like McCain or Romney who was likely to win and be able to offer him a place on the ticket or in the cabinet. Instead, he burned his bridges in order to support who shares his views on Life, China, the 2nd Amendment, protecting marriage, and is now running on stopping illegal immigration (though admittedly Huckabee’s record in this area is not great.)
Yeah, Maybe Fred is smart enough to distance himself from McCain.
Hunter is not who I thought he was.
He was for sale to a phony.
I don’t think Hunter did enough research on his Bud Huckabee, but I wasn’t up to speed on Huckabee either until a month or so ago, when the citizens of Arkansas brought me up to speed.
Hunter may not have talked to the good people from Arkansas. I’d recommend he do.
LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL! LOL!
We’re all in trouble now. All 3 of his votes now belong to Huck. :-)
Cats and dogs living together. Mass hysteria!
Now that Thompason’s gone, he’s got no one at all. If he just pouts and says he’ll not participate, that’s as good as supporting Obama/Hillary/Edwards nominee.
So no matter what he does he’ll get criticized.
yes they do. the endorsement makes almost perfect sense...except for the illegal issue and national security. That was really hunter’s strong suit for many conservatives but he apparently felt economic populism was more important.
Why does it matter?
Hunter endorses the socialist from Arkansas?
I think I’ve been transported to Bizzaro World
