“Vote for McCain.”
Sadly, we are now left with Rudy McHuckney.
I will hold my nose and support Mitt Romney. I’m pretty sure I can’t hold it tight enough to support any of the other candidates. McCain is pretty much a non-starter.
Not gonna happen. A VP pick should translate into additional support for the presidential candidate. Hunter had next to none.
I think this really does show how lousy the remaining choices are. Since the last conservative dropped out I haven’t decided which RINO I’m going to support. If it wasn’t for the fact that it would be far worse to have Hillary, Obama, or Edwards in there I wouldn’t support any of them.
That is good.
Hows about Rudy/Ron Paul ticket?
LOL this is somewhat unexpected.
LOL! I’m trending in that direction too and I don’t know why either....
I can tell you one thing, I’m not enthused with the current choices.
“At least it wasn’t McCain.”
It’s better than a kick in the head I guess.
Add another 20 votes to Huckabee’s column.
Which terrible candidate do you think Hunter should have endorsed instead?
Same as me...none of the above.
Would he have given us an analogous surprise as president were he elected?
I cannot wait to watch this thread explode.
First the minutemen and now Hunter.
Its time for a reality check paleocons. Freds out. Hunters endorsing Huck.
This is going to leave a mark.
i had to double check this wasn’t satire or something. I can’t believe this.
So, it turns out that Mr. Hunter isn’t a real conservative after all.
few heads explode
NOT my head..I am not surprised. Now I know why I supported Duncan Hunter way back...
“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.”
Only Paul will end our addiction to debt.
Then we would stop funding our debt by selling it to China.
China is buying us - with our own stupid greed for gubmint handouts.
I think I'd be ok with that ticket. I was with Hunter from the start and had high hopes for Fred. At this point Huckabee actually looks good in comparison to the rest of the sorry crowd - and that's really saying something.
Guess I'll have to duck now, huh? :)
WTF? I want my money back Duncan.
I’ll be voting for Romney if and only if he doesn’t choose either Huckabee or McCain for VP.
Did Duncan Hunter just put Huckabee under the microscope?
I am shocked at this actually.
It doesn’t make sense at all.
Better that he didn’t endorse anyone.
Well, he better have a second choice.
Huskster is broke.
“everyone has to pick the parts of the conservative message that are most dear to them.”
That’s how I’m seeing it. My big issues at present are winning the war, pro-life, fiscal responsibility, pro-gun rights.
#1 is winning the war. Who do I think would be best sitting across from Achmadidnahjubbawhatever? McCain or Rudy. I really trust them on this issue. No matter where they stand or what they do in any other arena, I totally trust them as commander in chief.
#2 is pro-life. So far, McCain is the only candidate who hits 1 and 2.
Yet, the tidal wave of opinion on FR seems to be that McCain is a bad guy. Rush doesn’t like him. So I don’t know what to do.
Huckabee, I just can’t see him on the world stage dealing with Putin and Kim Jong Mentally Ill. Also he is a big tax and spender.
Romney, he might hold his own on the world stage, but he doesn’t seem to be top tier to me. I wonder about his conversion to pro-life and pro-gun issues. I do think he’d be decent on running things. I am afraid of social programs.
COME BACK FRED
We need to start randomly drug testing everyone on the government payroll...All Senators, Congress, and those that occupy the Oval Office...Do it often.
Ping. Nothing to say. You guys are saying it all.
I blame others who are not as smart as I to be able to clearly see who is the best candidate.
Pick the wrong week to give up pills...
He should have kept quiet like Fred Thompson about endorsing anyone else.
I guess it really easier to take an honest man than a crook.
Hopefully Huckabee runs out of money. Romeny looks like the only viable Non-Rino left. I also think he could wipe the floor with the bitch better than anyone left in the race.
Maybe Hunter is into “popped squirrel”.
I will get over it, he never went anywhere, and this may be his political swan song.
“There are NO good choices in this election!!! “
Except for Reagan in 1980 there hasnt been a good choice for the GOP for along time. This is nothing new - the GOP forces these eletists RINOs on us. I am depressed too but it almost always has been a choice of a lesser of two evils - we need to pick our poison and deal with it. I wont vote for McCain no matter what.
Congressman...did you know that at Free Republic this makes you a RINO just like Dana Rohrabacher?
He is a Southern Baptist. That has got to be the reason. Sorry Duncan, you were my man, but now I question your judgment.
Ann Coulter endorsed Romney.
If so, we may be seeing Huck and Hunt.
Ann Coulter stated she is a Catholic going with *the Mormon* on a recent (IIRC) BOR show.
Just caught the last snippet - but she is clearly trending to Mitt.
Well isn’t this a kick in the nuts. Hunter endorses Huck. I’m sure Huck’s a good man, but he’s an Arkansas liberal.
As for me, I couldn’t resist the dark side of the force. My libertarian Mr. Hyde has wn out over my sophisticated Dr. Jekyll.
But what choice does a man have? Hunter- OUT. Thompson- OUT.
I’m voting for Ron Paul. If I can’t vote for Reagan, I’ll vote for Goldwater.
Good grief! I guess anybody can get fooled. This really shows Huckabee to be an Elmer Gantry type phoney.
That is certainly reasonable, but some people like to choose sides.
Yes it does....he wants face time on the cable shows.
Hunter is and will be the new media darling.
“This is going to make a few heads explode here on FR!”
And he couldn’t possibly deliver his home state. The Hunter for VP talk has been pie-in-the-sky nonsense from the beginning.
Ok- I can now officially say- in this campaign season- nothing can surprise me.
Hunter endorses Huckabee. Just dayum.
More on Hunter/Huck [Byron York]
The endorsement of Huckabee just doesn't seem to fit, given Hunter's national-security orientation, concern about China, all that. I thought it seemed so odd that, when I got the email a few minutes ago, I called Hunter's spokesman to make sure it was right. It's not huge news Hunter got all of 1,048 votes in the South Carolina but a number of conservatives who paid close attention to the race liked Hunter, and they usually weren't the sort to support Huckabee.
I agree with much of what you say. I said at the beginning of this campaign that the one person I would never vote for is McCain. I’m about to eat those words. I will vote for Rudy if he stays in, even though I am strongly pro-life. My problem with Romney is that I just don’t trust him in my gut. He’s the least conservative, I think, and he’s been packaged to sell to a conservative audience when I don’t think he is. Rudy is honest about it, which is why I would support him. Not crazy about McCain, but for the reasons you cite, will probably support him if Rudy drops out.
My first choice was Thompson. Time to move on.
Voting is a privilege and I’m hoping against hope I have made the right (no pun intended) choice.
I have to ask myself, “Would not voting make any difference?”, probably not.
