Skip to comments.Huckabee Hints Clear Channel Conspiring With Romney
Posted on 02/04/2008 7:25:13 AM PST by RatherBiased.com
Speaking at a news conference in Oklahoma, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee floated the idea that the reason the vast majority of America's conservative talk radio hosts aren't endorsing him or John McCain is because Mitt Romney's investment firm owns a significant share of Clear Channel Communications, the nation's largest radio syndication company.
"Some suggest that the fact that Bain Capital owns a major stake in Clear Channel is on Sean's network, maybe there's a correlation. I don't know."
The Sean he was referring to had to be none other than Sean Hannity, America's number-two talk radio host behind Rush Limbaugh.

That is stupid, because Sean Hannity had been sucking up to Giuliani prior to his departure last week.
The vast majority of America’s conservative talk radio hosts aren’t endorsing him or John McCain is because neither are conservative.
VRWC strikes again!
And again, the teamwork between Huckabee and McCain, like Perot/Clinton
Will somebody slap this guy already! And he appeared yet another time this morning on Huck & Friends. My nerves!
How many pair of kneepads did Hannity wear out ‘interviewing’ Rudy?
How’s that bid for Veep working for ya there, Huck?
Huck sounds more like Hillary every day.
Same with Mark Levin who was supporting Fred Thompson until he dropped out.
(Admittedly Levin isn’t Clear Channel sffiliated.)
Unless he has proof of this statement, this is a pretty sleazy thing to say.
Crap.. I been saying all along Hannity is a Romney tool... Probably paid him off...
Money talks right Sean... idiot. He does not speak to true Conservatism either...
Ah, the VWRC strikes again.
Good for Clear Channel!!
The MSM supports Huckaphonies friend Juan, so what does that tell us?
LOL! Has anyone heard another peep out of Chuck Norris since he said “John McCain is too old”? I think McCain round house kicked Huckabee back into line after that one.
Go Mitt! Go Fred! Go USA!
Rush said he wasn't going to endorse in the primary, and he hasn't.
He has, although, on more than a few occasions, lumped Romney in the conservative category.
Romney may not be conservative enough for you, but he's evidently conservative enough for Rush to refer to him as a conservative.
And Rush is a conservative, I do believe.
A vote for Huckabee is a vote for McCain.
Huckabee is a democrat and needs no proof.
Hey Suckabee....dry it up you big cry baby!
OMG your serious.. and Romney has such glowing Conservative crententials.. give me a break...
Romney is the king of MA abortions.... Flipped-flop can flip again do you turst him... just because he says he is pro-life now...
Oops. Should read VRWC
“Some suggest that the fact that Bain Capital owns a major stake in Clear Channel is on Sean’s network, maybe there’s a correlation. I don’t know.”
For a man who doesn’t know a lot, he sure likes to talk a lot.
Huckabee, being the goober he is.
Huckabee is a troll.
Wow, Huckabee has been hanging out with Ron Paul too much.
No mention from him of News Corp conspiring with John McCain though...
What a dumb hillbilly.
This nut is just as bright as most of his supporters!
That ‘green’ eye envy just won’t go away. WWJD?
I give Huckabee a little more credit it does seem strange how Hannity has become such a Romney Shill and Romney is not exactly a Conservative Icon...
Thanks. You're all about raising the level of discourse, I see.
Huckabee has shown what he really is: a nasty little pr**k . At first I thought it was just that he hates Mitt because Mitt is rich and handsome, with a beautiful family, but it’s become obvious that Huck is kissing up to McCain in order to get McCain to pick him for VP.
No he didn’t say Romney told them what to say... He said Romney paid them to say what he wants them to say...
See the differance...
Huck hasn’t a chance in hell of winning. These silly accusations just make him look petty and small.
We all know he is in the tank for McCain.
If his ignorant campaign hadn’t of come out and attacked talk radio, he would never of had the problem.
This is just DIRTY POLITICS by Huckabee
(States his claim with no references and then says - but “I don’t know...”)
LOl! Yep, you were right. We had another Huck and Friends morning, with a dose of his ventriloquist dummie, Chuck.
Nor Charles Krauthammer whom really is the true Conservative commentator but he has exposed Romney on a few occasions...
I guess he knows his audience.
Huckabee is bucking for the VP slot, no question about it.
I hope McCain isn’t stupid enough to give Huckabee the VP slot. If McCain does that, you can kiss this election “bye, bye”. Imho, Huckabee is hoping for some kind of cabinet position.
I’m also still hoping Romney will pull it out and become the nominee.
Sean hates McCain...can you blame him?
Can I ask you a question? As a Huckabee fan, does it bother you that Huckabee’s son, while at Boy Scout camp, caught a stray dog, hung it with a rope, slit its throat with a pocket knife, and stoned it to death? Also, are you a Michael Vick fan too?
It’s hard for me to comprehend why anybody who didn’t grow up in Hope AR has ever taken this guy seriously.
(And don’t say we weren’t warned about him long ago by the Club for Growth and leaders of the Arkansas GOP.)
“Unless he has proof of this statement, this is a pretty sleazy thing to say.”
The veracity of a statement has little to do with its effectiveness in a campaign, whether political or advertising.
Neither McTraitor or the Arkansas boy wonder have any buisness as potus or vpotus....
“This is just DIRTY POLITICS by Huckabee
(States his claim with no references and then says - but I dont know...)
Same as the Jesus/satan’s brother comment. He makes outrageous comments but state’s he doesn’t know as some kind of stupid cover. He thinks he’s really clever.
I’m not sure I agree with your third point, but the others, yes.
lol try again?
Sleazy but effective?
