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.
