Skip to comments.HUCKABEE FORUM WAS A PRE-TAPED FORUM! WHY?????
Posted on 03/03/2012 5:44:01 PM PST by seekthetruth
The same questions were to be asked of each candidate. That did not happen.
Just watch the questions Mitt Rpmney receives that no other candidate receives. Did Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich receive a very emotional question?
This forum was made to be a pre-planned ad for Mitt Romney!
I caught it earlier today when there was a little clip presented on FOX with Huckabee as he announced again about the forum. A clip of the emotional question was shown. I was waiting this evening to see if that same emotional question was asked of any other candidate.
Notice there was no military type question asked of the others.
THIS FORUM WAS NOTHING BUT AN AD FOR MITT ROMNEY!!
SHAME ON FOX, SHAME ON HUCKABEE!
There will be more discussion on this “Forum Ad for Romney” that showed for two hours!!
Huckabee a fraud?
Gee, who knew? /s
Of course Fox is in the bag for mittens, you can watch anything they say about the election and tell that.
I am sick about this pre-planned ad for Mitt Romney! Newt and Rick should speak out about this obvious ad for Mitt!
To announce the forum as fair and balanced would be a complete lie!
How many of the questioners are Mitt supporters? So nicely planned for all emotional military questions, just for Mitt.
Who was the first candidate to step forward in support of our troops over the Koran burning? Newt! It took five days for Mitt Romney to even mention it!
I don’t think you’re seeking the truth, you already have your mind made up.
I’d heard that the forum had to be taped to accommodate the candidates schedules, else none would have been able to attend live.
I feel sorry that Rick Santorum and Newt didn’t get a fair shake in this two hour ad for Mitt Romney!
What the hell are they talking about the Koran for? It is supposed to be a jobs and economy forum. Period.
Wonder where Cain Conservative is tonight, the genius who thinks Huck is a great conservative hero.
Why would you think a progressive would do anything on the up and up?
Ideology trumps ALL!!!
It was supposed to be, and was billed as, a forum on “JOBS”. The same thing happened last time, with Pam Bondi and others, as far as Newt was concerned — he got combative questions and was interrupted quite a few times by questioners.
The blatant manipulation is disgusting, I’d agree with you there. If we expect to keep our Republic we need to find an answer for it.
Huckster was always the Southern-fried Slick Willard.
Stop whining and posting vanities in all caps. You sound like a p****
I did just listen to the citizens who asked questions and glad I did. Earlier I was thinking that perhaps they were selected as Romney supporters, and I was wrong to think that of them. Two of them stated they were undecided but felt all candidates did well.
The blatant use of the father and his son, was
very dishonorable for Huckabee to have carried on.
I agree. How dishonest to the voters in the upcoming Primary states. They saw a promotion of Romney over Newt and Santorum but I do think both Newt and Santorum did well.
I look forward to the look of horror on their damn faces when they see people not showing up in the general to vote for THIER candidate.
I for one, will NOT fall in behind Fox and the GOP-e and have that POS Romney shoved down my throat, PERIOD.
The very second that Romney or Saintorum wins the nomination (God forbid), Obama wins the election. That very second I will quit all of this and walk away. I’ll simply wait and get ready for the civil war... it will come.
The Fox and the GOP-e can go straight to hell.... the sooner the better.
The reason that it was pre-taped was because:
1) The candidates had evening engagements
2) Huckabee’s coming to Idaho.
I support Rick Santorum, but I detected no bias at all from Huck. One of the panelists even said Santorum did the best.
“The very second that Romney or Saintorum wins the nomination (God forbid), Obama wins the election. That very second I will quit all of this and walk away.”
If it happens, no more politics for me from that moment on.
“very dishonorable for Huckabee to have carried on.”
Someone should shove in his face the 2008 ad he made on Mitt.
Yeah, it looked like an obvious tee up for Romney to display his human side. I did like that they asked Santorum about health care and the bank bailout. So maybe they just tried to give each candidate a chance to show their strength. Although, FOX played the “Mitt’s human” bite earlier in the day, so I think they are definately the Romney channel. Well we’ll see how Romney as chosen by the powers that be does in the upcoming battle with Obama. At least nobody can force me to vote for or donate to Republicans ever again if their brilliant plan fails again.
I dislike Romney & the Huckster. Sure it’s a setup. Why should we get upset because we know the final outcome. Only unless you are willing to fight in the streets & then I have no assurance that we could win. These elites that have total control on this nation are going to do as they wish. America has no bearings on my past lifestyle - probably the same for Jim Robinson. This country is & always will be in change & we can’t stop that. I will never see a president that is half of RR. It’s gone & you can’t put that Genie back in the bottle.
Frankly, I have never seen anything honorable about Huckabee.
Consider it done.
So Huckabee is on the take.
Are you sure of your conclusion?
In Phoenix for the NASCAR weekend.
And also in your head, Nerd-boy. ; )
No, it’s just more childish ranting by the usual suspects.
“Yeah, it looked like an obvious tee up for Romney to display his human side”
Blast from the past: When a father with a son in Iraq says he’s offended that Mitt Romney compared his sons (who are trying to get Mitt elected) to his son, and the soldiers in Iraq, Mitt starts to smirk
Equating Romney, the architect of socialized medicine, TARP lover, and serial $50 baby killer — with a pretty strong conservative like Santorum is totally ridiculous.
America will vote for a conservative like Rick over liberal twins like Barack & Willard in a one-on-one scenario.
But you did get it half right. Obama-lite Willard would definitely lose to the real Obama.
The bottom line is BOTH Rick and Newt are conservatives. Ask the owner of FR if you think they aren’t.
You sound surprised... why?
Personally I would not make the claim that Huckabee is on the take. What I would say is that he is a faux conservative, speaking loudly about certain social issues while sliding a very moderate to liberal agenda on everything else sort of to the side.
Very few conservative websites or talk shows have any use for Huckabee at all. Very few still fall for the ridiculous notion that he’s a good conservative. He’s a pro life statist and he will play the class envy card in a skinny minute, seeing as how he’s always made his living off the offering plate or the tax man (prior to making it off of Roger Aile’s smarts.)
Like a lot of preachers Huckabee glad hands you with one hand while the other gropes for your wallet.
I am absolutely appalled that FOX used those two servicemember's families in such a deliberate, contrived and despicable manner just to “pump up” Mitt Romney's image. The people who put together that so-called "forum" have no more shame than the hard Left!!!
Of course both Newt and Rick got policy questions which required lengthy and deliberative responses as well as some follow up questions from the Fox Business guy (who is a Romney supporter).
I like Mormons, I just don't want Mitt Romney to be President.
Same thing with African-Americans. It's not because Obama is black(or a simile of), it's just him.
Uh... just in case... does he shake left-handed or right-handed?
The Juvenile Entertainment Section?
Today is the anniversary of Huckabee’s dropping out of the Presidential race back in 2008.
He had accomplished his purpose, pushing Romney out of the race so the next-in-line McCain could get into position to usher in the Obama administration.
The agenda of Huck and his bloated (a phenomenom caused by his sudden rise to clebrity status at Fox News) little buddy Frank Luntz and the Elite GOP cartel is pretty much completely transparent at this time.
Are you kidding me? Everytime I tune in to FNC they seem to have Santorum on. Couple that with Roger Ailes saying he is pulling for Santorum (a former foxnews contributor) and it never surprised me that Santorum would be overly exposed by the network.
