Skip to comments.Mike Huckabee to Common Core Creators: Rebrand, Don't Retreat
Posted on 02/01/2014 9:50:36 PM PST by This Just In
Though former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told his Fox News Channel audience in early December he was no longer supporting the Common Core standards for which he had avidly campaigned, his message to one of the groups that created the standards was different.
According to The Washington Post, at a recent meeting of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), one of the organizations that created the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), Huckabee urged state education officials to get rid of the Common Core name

Huckabee = weasel
He thinks he has a chance to be president.
And this is the Republican’s leading candidate? Huh?
Huckabee like Grahamnesty is another phony.

Of course. Get rid of the name but keep the agenda..
These ‘politicians’ are actors paid by Communists and Jihadis to destroy the USA.
If they don’t play ball their NSA file gets dumped to CNN and their career ends the same day.
Never trusted that prick.
He plans to rebrand his family as skinny.
Bite him doggy!
[cue Yosemite Sam]
And rhere were people on this very site insisting this fraud was a conservative when he was running for president.
Don’t hear much from them these days.
He just can’t figure out where he stands, can he?
Rebrand it, refocus it, but dont retreat, Huckabee reportedly told CCSSO members.
Seems like an analogy for the gop wing of the uniparty in general. Don’t make the changes that your constituents want, simply rename them. Or put less elegantly, don’t call it a “s*** sandwich”, call it “steak on toast.”
“Dont hear much from them these days.”
Don’t worry. They’ll be back later this year, pimping for the gop wing of the uniparty. I suspect that most are paid bloggers. Until the campaign season starts in earnest, there isn’t much perceived need for them.
You can tell who they are when they insist that ya GOTTA vote for the gop! Ya just GOTTA!
Huckabee urged state education officials to get rid of the Common Core name
This is the problem it’s the name, rename it and now we have something he and they can support.
Rebrand means “support”
Huckabee still supports Commie Core
Common Core needs to be ELIMINATED
He has no role except as a spoiler. He can’t win, but he can siphon off enough votes from the evangelicals he’s conned away from a Cruz or Walker as to ensure a jeb, or now rubio win.
This is really diabolical. Yet one poll shows the Huckster as a 2016 front runner
So true. He’ll be all over Iowa starting early next year.
“And this is the Republicans leading candidate? Huh?
I thought it was Jeb Bush as second choice after Christie
The rent-seekers and spoilers always show up in Iowa. Huckabee has two advantages here: people remember his name from having "done something somewhere" (like being on TV, or once being a governor), and a large pool of caucus-goers who equate being able to assume a sincere expression while saying "evangelical" with actually being either conservative or morally upright.
If you can't fool them in Iowa, you can't fool them anywhere.
And this guy is running for president?!
More and more, Huckabee appears to be a Manchurian Candidate - who, like the original, just can never seem to make it.....
What’s wrong with the guy??????
Huckabee sucks. How about getting the government out of education?
Huckabee went full-communist.
Never go full-communist.
two faced Huckabee
speaks to the Consevative base that brought him his political success - such as it was
while he talks the language of the big government Liberals, and supports their agendas, when he’s with them
the guy just has to get himself into the limelight, whichever side of the fence he is approaching
Didn’t him and that great “I just want to be loved” attentiong grabber, Clinton, hail from the same state? Maybe there’s something in the water.
This is one Huckleberry that cannot be removed with the usual measures. America needs a shower and lots of soap.
“Mike Huckabee to Common Core Creators: Rebrand, Don’t Retreat”
I know Mike, how about getting the Federal government the hell out of education completely and let the states handle it themselves. We could start by closing down the DOE.
Dont hear much from them these days.
They probably realized no one else would support Michael
Dukakis Huckabee, and so threw their hats in for "severe conservative" Myth Romney.
We unfortunately have to keep hearing about the great Myth.
So many sellouts to choose from, yet only one vote to cast - What's a GOsheeP to do?
smarmy used-car salesman...
Another socialist heard from...
At best, he is a pro-life liberal, nanny state, big gov, religious tyranny fruitcake.
At worst, he is a stealth commie.
Six months into the 2008 campaign, he was shocked that any conservative valued the US Constitution over his snake oil sales pitch.
His only followers were the lowest-IQ ten percent of Republican voters. They just pretend, "well, it's almost a majority."
And slick, smooth former Southern Baptist preacher.
Apologies to my dear SBC brethren - no offense intended. Many SBC pastors are real men of God......maybe Huckabee is, I don’t know.
His vapid, Oprah like style is completely ineffective in refuting leftism.
Now it appears, he has gotten himself a seat on the "globalist train".
