Mike Huckabee Fans Revolt After He Endorses Lamar Alexander
Breitbart ^ | 7/28/2014 | Tony Lee

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.

Huckabee is NOT a conservative. He is a HUCKSTER in its most despicable meaning of the word and nothing more than that.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Of course the Huckster would back Alexander.

They are both amnesty loving nanny staters.

It’s a perfect match.

Some of us saw through his act in 2008.

Too many latch onto a candidate/wannabe and project what they want the candidate to be and do not see who the candidate really is. The half-dozen crashed bandwagons from 2012 are a testament to that.

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.

From the front he looks like Larry Mondello, with greasy fingers and chin.

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.

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.

I’m really getting tired of that goober.

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.
