... Like Mike Huckabee gettin' the endorsement of those right-wing tRads known as the m1nuteman pr0ject.

Huckabee Gets Minuteman Head's Backing
Quote:
MIKE GLOVER | December 11, 2007 04:19 PM EST | AP

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — The founder of the Minuteman Project, the anti-illegal immigrant group, endorsed Republican Mike Huckabee on Tuesday, while Huckabee dismissed a presidential rival's immigration criticism as the work of "the tattletale in the third grade."

At a news conference hastily arranged to cope with a crippling ice storm, Huckabee brought out Minuteman head Jim Gilchrist, whose private group patrols the Mexican border on its own to keep out illegal immigrants.

"For months now, I've been searching for a candidate to support for president of the United States," said Gilchrist. He said he settled on Huckabee as the candidate whose plans were most likely to halt "this illegal immigrant invasion problem."
...

Invasion problem.

Invasion of the "jobs few Americans want" snatchers.

This putz also endorses the local county sheriff. Sheriff "Joe" likes to rattle local city law enforcement by making immigration busts that the local cops won't make figuring there is better uses for their resources. Two facts about sheriff "Joe": 1—He has sent deputies to Blackwater for training. 2—When accused of being a member of the KKK, his response was "he wears such accusations as a badge of honor."

Local NeoCons will line up to support Huckabee with this endorsement. McCain is considered 'soft' on immigration because of his pragmatic views. Such is living blue in a red state.

Romney gets Iowan evangelical endorsement.

Helps to know who the hell to stay away from at the polls.

Leader of Christian Iowa Group Gives Romney His Vote
Quote:
December 29, 2007, 8:55 pm | By Michael Luo

BURLINGTON, Iowa—Wait, was he supposed to do that?

Mitt Romney got a surprise endorsement on Saturday from the Rev. Morris Hurd, chairman of the Iowa Christian Alliance, a prominent conservative Christian group in the state, as he introduced the former Massachusetts governor at a rally tonight.

Officials with the group typically avoid making public endorsements because of their tax-exempt status, but Mr. Hurd blurted out his decision tonight in what felt like a bit of an accident.

Some of the Catholic churches and the rightwing ones too, openly endorsed Bush over Kerry on '04.

Guess it isn't against religious law and that is the only ones they seem to care about.

It amazes me when a church or religious leader endorses a candidate who may well turn out to be a war criminal or such.

They can lose a lot of support by attaining a reputation of being whorish to big money interests.

Churches are not supposed to endorse any candidates, period. But they do. I still have the information handed out by a neighbor's Catholic church in '04.

Long, involved listing of 'sins' of Kerry, and 'right thinking' on Bush's part.

Appalling!

Kerry has launched an investigation or two into CIA misdeeds.

This is indeed not 'right thinking' in the Bush world where might always makes right. Especially when tens of thousands die.

Any church that hands out political endorsements is not too likely to see me darkening their doors.

That is part of what was so disheartening for me. The people who gave me this information, although they did not believe it themselves, are still members in good standing in that church.

I have no idea how one could continue to go to a church that broke the rules so blantantly, but they are still fully backing that church. And they can't stand Bush.

I guess one's thinking doesn't have to make sense, eh?

Ron Paul is endorsed and supported by David Duke, the Klu Klux Klan, The John Birch Society, and various other assorted Nazi nuts and white supremicist groups.

From the Giuliani camp, we learn that English-only bigots support him, and Rudy is only too proud to promote that.

[url]Rudy Visits Controversial Cheesesteak Shop[/url]
Quote:
At Geno's Steaks, Sign Went Up Reading "This Is America. When Ordering Please Speak English."

Oct. 1, 2007

Monday night Rudy Giuliani visited a famous Philadelphia cheesesteak restaurant that serves as much controversy as it does calories.

Geno's Steaks has been a famous Philly hot-spot for years. It was thrown into the headlines last year when the owner posted a sign at the counter that reads, "This is America. When Ordering Please Speak English."

The national spotlight on the restaurant and its owner, Joey Vento, came at a time when both the media and Congress were fixated on illegal immigration - a subject that Republican candidates have been returning to in the past few months.
...


Think Progress tells us this is the same Vento who says this of Mexicans:

Quote:
He also once told a reporter that Mexicans carry disease into the United States because they “play and drink out of the same water.”

Romney getting the butt ugly Lou Sheldon's vote?
Quote:
The Rev. Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition -- a relentless campaigner against what he calls "the homosexual agenda" -- embraced Romney as a family man "who will give this nation the direction that it needs."

Romney was pro-choice and a supporter of gay rights when running for governor of Massachusetts. He speaks now of having experienced a personal epiphany when confronted with the question of whether to sign legislation legalizing stem-cell research in Massachusetts.


But wait, there's more!

How about:
Quote:
Social conservatives like Reverend Lou Sheldon and Bob Jones III, and pro-life leaders and attorneys Jim Bopp, Jr. and Jay Sekulow and others have been supporting Governor Romney for quite some time.

That's simply because Romney is the Bushbot in this election. Many people in the Christian right sold out to the neocons back in the late 70's, when they were recuited by the military industrial complex as foot soldiers to help get Reagan elected. While that unholy marriage has fractured somewhat lately, there are still many in the fundamentalist fanatic community who remain loyal to their neocon masters.

Romney is giving Bush some love

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- President Bush hasn’t been getting a great deal of love on the campaign trail in recent months and years, even from Republicans, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) gave him some on the eve of Iowa’s first-in-the nation caucuses.
He even used the L-word – “love.”

“We’re a nation united that stands behind our fighting men and women. We honor them and respect them,” Romney said at a conference center here. “We love what they’ve done for us, and we also love a president who has kept us safe these last six years.”

Good to see Bush back below 30% where he belongs. There seems to be about 10% who keep changing their opinion of Bush. I would love meet one them and ask, "WTF. What exactly is it about Bush that you can't make up your mind?"

Bush hits lowest approval rating yet in ABC poll

But does he KNOW how hated he is?

I think his handlers tell him that the polls are showing how much he's loved and respected and admired and how wonderful everyone in the whole, wide world thinks he is!

Quote:
President George W. Bush hit his lowest rating ever in an ABC/Washington Post poll released Tuesday, showing him for the first time below 33 percent approval.

"Just 32 percent of Americans now approve of the way Bush is handling his job, while 66 percent disapprove," the poll says. "Bush's work on the economy has likewise reached a new low. And he shows no gain on Iraq; despite reduced violence there, 64 percent say the war was not worth fighting, 2 points from its high."

The poll further shows that 77 percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track, topping a record high in early 1996, when Republican congressmen shut down the federal government in a dispute with Democrats over funding.

Bush's approval ratings have been consistent for the past nine ABC/Post polls, staying between 33 and 36 percent in 2007. While this new poll is not statistically significant, it represents Bush's first rating below the one-third mark.

Presidents Carter, Nixon, and Truman each endured a low water mark of approval lower than Bush's (at 28 percent, 24 percent, and 22 percent, respectively), but the length of Bush's slide, with three years below majority approval, has him approaching Truman's record of 38 months underneath the polls.
