Ask any consultant – they will tell you that endorsements are a boondoggle as much as they are a boon.
Tom McClintock endorsed Steve Poizner and is now out on Radio and TV calling Meg Whitman the third term of Arnold. This is an example of an excellent endorsement.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee endorsed Chuck DeVore for US Senate. This is an example of a bad endorsement.
Mike Huckabee Pardoned hardened criminals as Governor of Arkansas. In fact, one such criminal went and shot up a cafe in the Seattle Washington Area last summer and the nation was outraged. Why accept that kind of endorsement?
I try to look for similarities between endorsers and endorsees and I am wondering if Chuck DeVore’s support of Tom Campbell’s 2005 California Budget was a factor in Huckabee’s decision? The 2005 budget was the single largest increase in spending in the State’s history…
Mike Huckabee spent like Clinton before him in Arkansas… I just don’t see DeVore favoring the pardon of hardened felons. Someone help me out here.
Mike Huckabee is a bad, bad endorsement.
