Mike Huckabee to Common Core Creators: Rebrand, Don't Retreat
Breitbart News ^ | 1 Feb 2014, 12:19 PM | Dr. Susan Berry

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

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.

How sad. The fat gene from Huckabee’s side of the family, and some help from her side of the family has resulted in obese children. They, with the exception of the young girl, look like an ad for helium balloons. They will be battling this fat gene for the rest of their lives as is Huckabee.

“Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t 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.”

“Don’t 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!

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.

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.

More and more, Huckabee appears to be a Manchurian Candidate - who, like the original, just can never seem to make it.....

Thankfully.......

What’s wrong with the guy??????

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.

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?

Huckabee's first big contributor out of the starting gate was the NEA, for a very large sum.

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.

Huckabee is a know-nothing holy roller who thought he could skate into the White House by using the religious right.

His vapid, Oprah like style is completely ineffective in refuting leftism.

Now it appears, he has gotten himself a seat on the "globalist train".
