I think I just lost all respect for Mr. Hunter.

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 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.

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

At least he didn’t back McCain.

No, but I’m disappointed.

Of the remaining candidates, Huckabee is the most acceptable if for no other reason than he can be counted on to appoint conservative judges and justices. The same cannot be said for McCain, Romney, and certainly no Guiliani.

It’s official. Huckabee-hate is stronger than Hunter-love on FreeRepublic.

I think this just proved Tom Tancredo was the better candidate than Duncan Hunter, who was my first choice.

Maybe a little “PAYBACK” time for conservatives that did not hook onto his campaign.

It’s the nature of a politician - to compromise with the best he can get. I don’t hold it against him. Hunter has to work with other politicians to get as much done as he can in the future.

This is the reason government is a necessary evil. It’s wise to keep government as small as possible otherwise we compromise ourselves to death.

(I’m not voting for Huckabee though, I’m not a politician, LOL.)

Yep, the one thing that obviously never occurred to you is that Duncan Hunter may know more about both the issues and the man than you do, and that his judgment is thus more informed than yours.

Amen.

Disgusting development.

I never understood the enthuasiasm for Hunter. He not only voted for the Prescription Drug boondogle but for No Child Left Behind. He also casts more than his share of pure pork barrel votes.

I guess that the depth of Hunter’s conviction on illegal immigration just got exposed.....Where are all of the Hunter fans now??????

"I think I just lost all respect for Mr. Hunter."

BINGO!

I never investigated Hunter thoroughly, but was sceptical of that "Only true conservative" crap that was bantered about here. Something always looked odd about that guy. This confirms it. He's not a principled conservative, just a one trick pony.
