Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (second from right) joins the field of Republican presidential candidates debating Jan. 28 in Des Moines, Iowa. The others on stage are (from left): former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, business executive Carly Fiorina and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.

Stuck in Iowa, with poll numbers plummeting and chances for success dwindling, Mike Huckabee for President Inc. ran out of money.

Shameful that this beach-dwelling millionaire is asking others to pay his debt. Deficit-spending is his problem. Shameful.

He'll make this much in one day after he returns to Fox and Friends and joins back up with the propaganda machine. The huckster will be back soon friends!

A failure at being a fiscal conservative and as to his Christianity , he was much better at it till he became interested in manna more than Jesus.

For Shame.

Politics is a big money game, nothing else. Stop beating up Huck, he didn't do anything most big-time politicians haven't done at some point in their "career". Hillary whined that she and Bill were broke when they left the White House. Even if that were true, it didn't take long for the speaking circuit to make them rich. I have found one grain of truth in a political ad this year. French Hill's commercial says that "things aren't as bad as you believe in Washington......THEY'RE WORSE!" Whether you like him or not, probably a true statement.

Why doesn't he just sell his double-wide in Florida to pay off his debts? Only in the mind of Mike Hucksterbee does anyone think that he is qualified to be President, it's bad enough we had to put up with him as gov.

OUT, NORMALLY THERE IS THE NATURAL LEFT RIGHT POSITIONS OF DISAGREEMENTS , BUT SEEMS TO BE AS MANY ON RIGHT THAT HAD LOTS OF PROBLEMS WITH HIM AS ANY ON THE LEFT. MIGHT INDICATE THAT HUCK HAD HIS PROBLEMS AND BEING A BIG BOY AND STICKING HIS NECK OUT, HE HAS TO FACE THE MUSIC.

HE CAN NOW GO BACK TO FOX AND BRING ON HIS FRIEND TED NUGENT AND PLAY MUSIC AND MAKE MONEY AND SATISFY THAT CROWD . SO DONT FEEL SO MUCH SADNESS OVER HIS FALL FROM THE MOUNTAIN.

HE ONCE WAS SOMEWHAT PALATABLE [ BARELY] BUT HIS HARD TURN TO THE RIGHT OF RIGHT, DIDNT WORK OUT SO WELL FOR HIM.

Charles, I have no sadness for him. Just my point. Whether on the far left or far right or anywhere in between, these folks are people who have learned to work the system and have made their living (a quite good living I might add) off of it. They are all "Hucksters" in my opinion.

not much disagreement there out!

something has to change, right or left, too much money is at stake to "just be" the government

Unhappily it takes many zillons of dollars to get elected , and is only going to get worse before it gets better. Cant sell you soul without being later asked to bend over and grab your ankles. [excuse my metaphor. ] and still claim to be pure as snow.

All you religious pew sitters who supported him better pass the hat and help him out.

If there is a buck to be plucked you will have the Huck, from his youth with his fingers in the church collection plate to his Arkansas campaign funds of yore ,now the pockets of the right wing ones will supply the Hucks wallet with needed bucks.
