I definitely lost respect for him. Huckabee is a first class flake.

I’m actually getting frustrated with the FRs regarding this campaign, and if it’s true about what Rush said regarding not supporting the republican candidate then, heck with him too.

I’m the sorriest to admit that we don’t have a perfect candidate, but I feel for now Romney deserves a chance to win our vote.

Huckabee will never be President, so why:

1) endorse him
2) make himself look like an idiot and tick off his fans?

He already said he does not plan to endorse anyone.

Hey Hunter.
I want a refund.

Amen. I spent money on Duncan, then on Fred. I must be in la la land...

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.

I am not sure if I agree with Rep. Hunters endorsement but it was clearly based on principle and not on politics.

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.

Fantastic news. My first choice endorses my second choice. Duncan Hunter would make a great Secretary of Defense in the Huckabee administration.

Just did mine. I am sorry I ever wanted this guy to win. He must have never cared about immigration at all.

I kinda figured he was a one trick pony. He was stuck on his fence and that was it.

Sorry Duncan, you can go sit in the corner.

I think people have never seen politics in action before. People we like endorse people we don’t like all the time. No I’m not hurt by it, nor am I likely to vote for any of the pigmy RINOs still running.

Well, Hunter had little support to begin with. Also, endorsing Huckabee is a meaningless gesture because he will sink like a rock anyway on super Tuesday.

“Duncan Hunter Endorses Mike Huckabee”

Jesus Christ Himself could endorse Huckaliar OR Juan and they would STILL not get my vote!

Nah... he’s still a good man. It’s just a bad endorsement.

At least he didn’t back McCain.

A guy who lost to "uncommitted" in Michigan endorses the Huckster...

I always thought Duncan was smarter than to be taken in by the glorified medicine show salesman.

Huckabee/Hunter is a fairly conservative ticket...hmmm

Considering NONE of the front runners are Conservative, this will be a plus for Huckabee if he announces Hunter for VP

“This can only mean he wants the VP spot.”

Well, if he wanted the VP spot, he should have endorsed someone else as most of us think Huck can’t possibly make it.

The remaining five candidates are all terrible.

You could certainly argue that Huckabee's the most principled, conservative candidate remaining. Romney's a fraud, McCain's faults are well known, Paul is out there somewhere and so is his home planet, and Rudy's an authoritarian libertine.

This is a shock. I supported him. Hunter sure fooled me. He must not feel very strongly about the immigration issues to endorse Huckabee.

The entire history of endorsements show they are not worth much. Voters don't pay much attention to endorsements candidates make when they drop out. When a candidate drops out his supporters know that they chose a candidate who could not win the support of enough voters to stay in the race.

People just do not follow a loser's advice.

The most an endorsement can achieve is get some air time for the loser and perhaps for the candidate that he endorses.

People have a choice, blame themselves for picking a loser or blame the loser for not being a better candidate.

Guess which one most voters select.

Sounds familiar, somehow.

"I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy. We had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul; a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country."

Judge him not by his words, nor by his actions, for I have decided that he's a great guy after all.

Although I’m surprized, I’m not sure why. I could not support Hunter because I saw him as a populist. His endorsement of Huckabee confirms that.

There’s just way too many WTF moments happening for the Republicans right now for me not to believe that vast sums of Chinese dollars in Swiss bank accounts aren’t responsible for at least some of it. They want their fellow travelers back in the White House in the worst way.
