Duncan Hunter will be throwing his support to Mike *uckabee, guaranteed.

Both have a strong thread of evangelism to their campaigns.
Both cite abortion as their top issue.
Both support the so-called FairTax.
Both are trade protectionists.
Both have signed the No Amnesty pledge.
Both are anti-globalists “fair traders”.

He has been ignored by conservative talk radio, though he is the strongest true conservative.

Very frustrating indeed!

Go Hunter, Go!!!

But Huckabee is a liberal and Mr. Hunter is a conservative!

I’m not so sure that “fair trade” is a conservative position.

Because you don’t know what it even means, nor do you know Hunter’s position on trade. Nor can you find your a$$ with both hands

You're confusing 'fair trade' with 'free trade'.

"...which is economically sound than globalist Romney who like President Bush would side with Big Business over the American taxpayer and worker."

This little Fred kneepadder was posting a chart that purported to show Huckabee and Hunter had the same conservative rating. LOL

It also showed Edwards as a libertarian.

especially the early enthusiasts for Rudy Giuliani, suggested that the social conservative leg of the stool is dispensable,

Conservatism by degrees is a bunch of baloney. A person can't be socially Conservative by opposing big government programs while being fiscally liberal by supporting spending to fund those programs. One is either a Conservative or not a Conservative. Duncan Hunter has consistently towed the Conservative line throughout his career while the other GOP candidates have held views on a number of issues contrary to Conservatism.

Thompson and Paul may have some of the package, but only Duncan Hunter is the complete package.

There is no package if you have only some of the parts. The GOP is fast becoming the party of one principle. The principle to win at all costs. That attitude will cost them the Conservative ideals the GOP once considered important.

Get real

Both have a strong thread of evangelism to their campaigns.

Hunter doesn't wear it on his sleeve though

Both cite abortion as their top issue.

Both are excellent pro-lifers

Both support the so-called FairTax.

Hunter will cut spending more than Huckabee though

Both are trade protectionists.

Huckabee is a poser on trade

Both have signed the No Amnesty pledge.

Hunter's record speaks for itself

Both are anti-globalists “fair traders”.

Huckabee is bought and paid for CFR and is also johnny-come-lately on trade

Stop carrying *uckabee’s water.
You’re proliferating Ed Rollins and Mike *uckabee’s smear campaign against Fred Thompson.

He listed abortion as Hunter’s top issue.

Clearly, he hasn’t a clue.

Ignore Punchdrunk. He was touting a ‘universal’ political leanings chart that showed Edwards as a libertarian and Tancredo as an authoritarian.

Huckabee is definitely Pro-Hunter.

When you post stuff like this comparing Hunter to Huckabee,you lose any little shred of credibility you may have had.
