HUNTER ENDORSES HUCKABEE FOR PRESIDENTFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 23, 2008CONTACT: Gary Becks (619) 334-1655Washington, D.C. - - - Congressman Duncan Hunter, who withdrew his candidacy for the Republican Presidential nomination on January 19, 2007 , today endorsed Mike Huckabee."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 America's 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.# # #
Hunter for President
I think Duncan was giving the Republican base a little "pay back" for not getting behind his campaign.
I'm serious. I have to believe he has a bitter taste in his mouth after putting out his effort, and being rejected in such a big way.
It's only natural.
I am totally gobsmacked!
Is Rod Sterling lurking around in the bushes?
Hunter has Jumped the Shark
I never thought Duncan Hunter was electable but admired his conservative stance. Why he supports Huckabee is a mystery to me. Maybe he was pandering all along. (I don’t know)
Hey new boy. Learn how to post properly.
At least he didn’t endorse McCain, that would have been disastrous on his part. But I agree, Huckabee isn’t much more conservative so I don’t know what he’s thinking.
Hunter is a protectionist in a free trade party. I think this issue is what really motivated his endorsement of Huckabee.
Would he have thrown to Fred first if Fred had waited, you think?
Maybe you can show me where you supported Hunter in the first place. (your posting history doesn’t seem to indicate it anywhere)
Why the shock? He is , after all, a POLITICIAN. They are liars and sneaks by design, not much difference between the bolshevik dems and the jelly fish repubs. I don’t agree with many of Ron Pauls positions, but the guy has balls and what you see is what you get.
The guy we (THAT I) was calling a “real” conservative Endorses a guy who I consider more LIBERAL than Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter combined?! What is going on?
Maybe to Hunter, it’s an issue of who not to endorse — and why? I don’t understand Hunter’s decision and at this point care little as to why.
Something to counter your protectionism rhetoric.
It amazes me that after all the praise and accolades placed upon Duncan Hunter, folks don’t just simply take him at his word. If you don’t want to vote of Huckabee...fine. However, don’t denigrate someone else because it shakes your world view. Understand, he knows Huckabee better than any of you.
Also, Hunter isn’t doing this as “pay-back” for slights. He believes what he says. Disagree if you must, but don’t write it off as dribble. If anything, learn that you are probably not as well informed as you think you are.
The reaction to Hunter’s endorsement of Huckabee here on FR is starting to scare me. I have never seen such a fickle group in my entire life. Also, I find it as scary how quickly this group endorses Romney. Absolutely unbelievable and just plain damnable foolishness.
Time for you all to step back, take a breath, then reassess your positions and backing. You are headed in the wrong direction.
Eeeehhh, go back to your crowns and coloring books! I didn’t know he was gonna do that!
A bit over the top.
