Skip to comments.Mike Huckabee Fans Revolt After He Endorses Lamar Alexander
Posted on 07/28/2014 10:41:47 AM PDT by bkopto
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month.
Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate's amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America.
Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee's announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander.
One Huckabee fan said, "We supported and worked hard to get Governor Huckabee delegates when he ran in TN. His endorsement of Lamar with his liberal voting record is both an insult and disappointment."
Another supporter wrote, "With this endorsement, you lose my support and funds!" The Huckabee fan said that "Alexander has repeatedly proven himself ... to be as bad a rino and sellout to the conservative cause as" Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and singled out his support for "amnesty over simple enforcement of existing laws."
Here is a sampling of the blowback from Huckabee's own supporters in the past month, exactly as they appear on Facebook:
-Are you serious? You are not the conservative I thought you were. Lamar Alexander is the most liberal republican in the state of Tennessee.
-We supported and worked hard to get Governor Huckabee delegates when he ran in TN. His endorsement of Lamar with his liberal voting record is both an insult and disappointment.

I’m really getting tired of that goober.
Fat pig, fake conservative.
Fat pig, fake conservative.
Mike Huckabee has fans?
Finally, they wake up! Instead of blindly following him and his flute through Hamlin Town!
Huckabee is a nutcase
All of those pardons and the spastic bass playing ought to have given most folks a clue by now
Who ever thought Huckabee was a conservative?
Huckabee is NOT a conservative. He is a HUCKSTER in its most despicable meaning of the word and nothing more than that.
Hickabee jumps the shark ...
Huckabee’s been playing “The Most Dangerous Game” for a while.
Wow! It took some people this long to see Smuckabee for what he really is? Incredible.
Sweet smiling Super RINO.
Hucakebee is a Christian Socialist. He wants to be in your bedroom and in your wallet.
Huckabee truly has jumped the shark. His radio show played on KSFO here in the frisco area and was a total bomb. They cancelled it after a few months.
I usually don’t pay any attention to him but I have been thinking about the way Bubba Clinton won in 1992. Somehow the Clinton crime family had something on Ross Perot and got him to run for pres against Bush. This split the Republican vote and allowed Clinton to win with 43% of the vote.
I have been thinking who the Clintons could come with in 2016 and I think Huck is a prime possibility. He is egotistical enough to think that he has a chance and he has shown that he does not care about anything except himself.
Huckabee has fans?
The SF Bay area is probably the worst ground for Huckabee's Christian Socialism. The right leaning people are more libertarians and the socialists hate religion.
I really have trouble watching Huckabee. Even when he does a good interview, I don’t trust him.
That’s the bottom line, really. I don’t believe him.
Just a shrunken Christie type.
I have been saying it repeatedly on this site, Huckabee is little more than a useful idiot to the establishment. They trot him out when they need help rounding up Christian Conservatives who are starting to stray away from the pre-determined choice. They also wheel him out when they need the conservative vote split in presidential primaries. Make sure his supporters don’t coalesce behind a single conservative.
Anyone who follows Huckabee and supports him is being played for a fool.
If Steve Harvey ever gets tired of hosting Family Feud, Huckabee will have found his ideal career.
Your assessment of Huckabee and his acolytes is as accurate an assessment as I’ve seen. Huckabee is a dense, vain fool who fancies himself as president, but is in fact nothing more than a useful idiot pushed by establishment Republicans to split the conservative vote every 4 years.
Look inside Huck’s boxers and the label will read: “Property of GOP
The Flim-Flam Man
Of course the Huckster would back Alexander.
They are both amnesty loving nanny staters.
It’s a perfect match.
I saw him on FoxNews over the weekend. The Huck has been putting on the pounds — from the side view, he is rivaling Chris Christie.
During the 2008 primary Huckabee came to Chattanooga...
I asked him about his support of illegal aliens...
he refused to answer me and scowled at me..
at that time Lamar! was busy pushing the various AMNESTY Bills..
Im not surprised Mike Huckabee is endorsing Lamar! now..
They didn't cancel it, he quit. He bombed nationwide.
Do tell? Here is an image from the San Francisco March for Life:
I'll accept your apologies.
From the front he looks like Larry Mondello, with greasy fingers and chin.
Same with Fred Thompson. The MSM drags them out of the woodwork when needed.
Um...since when is the Washington monument in SF?...and I lived there for a few years...never saw ANYONE wearing a parka...
Found your source...the pic is from DC....not frisco...
I will accept your apology now.
Gomer just dove headfirst into a mud puddle off the turnip wagon.
You have it. Wrong photo.
BTW, people do wear parkas in San Francisco.
I believe abortion hurts babies far more than it “hurts women”.
When these women get chopped into pieces and the life blood sucked out of them, then and only then will they have my sympathy.
I don't think they're asking for it.
Oh, I get it now.
Ok...that looks a lot more like I remember frisco looking...LOL
And although I never saw anyone waering a parka...I always laughed when it was in the 60’s and I’d be wearing a T-shirt when everyone else had jackets on....
I’m from Ohio....cold here is 11 below...not 60...
That’s not the Washington Monument. It’s some other obelisk.
Gov. Huckabee, this endorsement needs to be withdrawn...if it isn’t, you will never see the inside of the White House except as a guest.
BTW...there ain't that many ski caps and hoodies in S.F.
The 2014 march for life gathered on the Washington mall.
The scaffold is clearly visible in the posted photo.....
Here is a closer view:
Yes the obelisk in the picture is the Washington monument.
Which Goober; Huckabee, Lindsey Grahamnesty, and the rest of the Carnival Cavalcade of Characters in the Comity Club in the Upper Chamber. Should we call them a Gaggle of Goobers?
Any Chance we still can get a Mulligan and straighten out the Cochran mess in Mississippi?
Not trying to be an ageist, but it is time for Term Limits and Age Limits in the House, Senate, Supreme Court and maybe even POTUS. If it is good enough for Airline Pilots it is good enough for them.
Well Huck’s a RINO. I’m not surprised.
Rusty Stevens is still living and will turn 66 this year.
