Huckabee recieves union endorsement

Just how far has Governor Mike Huckabee strayed from the conservative fold?

Today, Huckabee and Hillary Clinton recieved dual endorsements of The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM).

The IAM have decided to endorse both a Democrat and a Republican this election cycle.

"The dual endorsement is intended to involve all IAM members in the upcoming election," said
Buffenbarger. "It is fitting for the union whose early members gave birth to Labor Day to reach beyond traditional partisan boundaries to establish new relationships for the benefit of all working Americans.

On why they chose Huckabee:

"Mike Huckabee was the only Republican candidate with the guts to meet with our members and the only one willing to figure out where and how we might work together,"said Buffenbarger. "He is entitled to serious consideration from our members voting in the upcoming Republican primaries."

Mike Huckabee is willing to work with union thugs?

A round of applause is goes to ALL the other Republicans running for President who ignored the sirens song of these union thugs.

My past concerns about Huckabee, combined with his new union endorsement make it safe to say that Huckabee should NOT be the choice of conservatives.

Liberal endorsement doesn't spell liberal politician. You should stick with your "problems with Huckabee" post instead of equating endorsement with values.

Otherwise people with NRA 'A' ratings (everyone's favorite after-dinner mint) would be pro-gun, which we both know is not the case.

I think that it speaks volumes that Huckabee was willing to sit down with them in the first place, when NO OTHER Republican Presidential candidate would.

What I am saying is that once Rudy is elected that this country will be a much better place.

There is no way Rudy gets elected. Should Rudy win the nomination, enough people who think like me will skip over his name at the ballot box that he won't win.

Voters contempt of Hillary will outweigh any dislike they may have of Rudy

My contempt for Hillary will not make me vote for Rudy... I am finished with the "best of the worst" candidates... If Rudy wins the nomination I am surely not supporting him...

Let this ring true and clear throught the party foundations. If we select leaders "because they can win" and not "because of their values" we do not deserve to have leaders in office!

Mike Huckabee sat down with the unions, the same way that Tom Tancredo sat dwon with the NAACP... because a forum is a forum... and if we can get one of them NOT voting for hillary, then we have done our jobs.

Writing off huge groups of people because of preconceived notions is juvenile... and the candidates who chose not to talk to ANY citizens in America do not deserve my vote!
