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.

That's how I'm looking at it and I'm willing to see what else he has to say and maybe take a closer look at Huck.

Oh, well, then, sorry about that, who did you say I’ll be voting for again, apologize that I missed it.

It scares me, too. It's almost violent, not to mention bereft of loyalty. Some of these people seem to be the stereotyped black/white - no shades of gray conservative caricature that the DUers love to ridicule. Deserving, in this case. People can change and ideas can change.

If he actually believes that Huckabee will be strong on immigration, he is either uninformed (in which case he should have said nothing) or cynical.

What a bunch of unproven BS. He said he was against Romney because a company that was ressurrected by Bain Capital (and then sent on its merry way) had done some questionable dealings with China. Hunter was probably right that the company was less than patriotic but at the same time he showed no proof that Romney had a hand in the company's sale because - tada - there wasn't any. The standard that Hunter had created for Romney was one where any action by a company saved by Bain, Romney should be held responsible even when he had no role in whatever "bad" decision was made. That was when I stopped holding my "Duncan is really solid but he's just not getting any traction" assessment.

Good post!! A pox on knee-jerk reactionaries. There is always more to things than meets the eye. History will show whether Hunter is right or wrong in this regard. His endorsement isn’t enough to get me to vote for Huckabee, however, but it does make me think and wonder what I may be missing.

Preach! I often wonder if FR hasn’t cast away alot of their most sane members while imagining they were enemies. The “pure” who have stayed are revealing themselves to be unstable idiots. Even if they are right at times who could count on them in a crisis?

I will never understand how conservatives on FR could support a liberal slimeball like Flip. It turns my stomach to think that he may very well be the republican nominee. The amount of ignorance I’ve seen displayed here from the fliparoos is mind boggling. WIll Rogers summed it up well when he said, “When ignorance gets started it knows no bounds”. The fliparoos have certainly proven that to be true.

I have taken a deep breath, I have renewed my search for the lesser of evils.

Everyone is neck and neck, in that department.

I am trying to find a candidate who has a histoy of supporting the RKBA, and it is pretty grim.

Well, rather than tell us how probably it was an informed decision on Hunter’s part, why don’t you educate us and post Hunter’s reasons for this decision?

Duncan Hunter does not know Mike Huckabee better than I do. Hunter cannot tell me anything about Huck that I don’t already know - but, from the sounds of the endorsement, it looks like Hunter is choosing to trust Huck’s campaign rhetoric over his RECORD.

Your post sounds just like the lone person who is driving their car north on a highway, but is upset because everyone else is going the wrong way because they are heading south.

Your post #18.

I agree with people dumping on Duncan Hunter so quickly. I still believe in Hunter and would vote for him if I could. However, He was only around Huckabee during the debates and I can see why he endorsed him with only that info. However, I will vote for Romney over Huckabee. I’m in Arkansas and voted from Huckabee in the past......but will never vote for him again.
