    A new low for even the Huckster!

    Jim Bakker is the lowest of scum!

    It's still the economy, stupid, and Huckabee is still wearing his sleaze blinders.

    We don't need a preacher in the White House.

    Voters younger than 30 don't remember this charlatan and his escapades and how he bilks money out of poor ignorant Christians. I can not believe even the Huckster would stoop this low for votes and to promote his book.

    All of Europe and its armies proved to lack the firepower to stop the Nazis at the time.

    What a win for the Huckster. A convicted felon preacher who bilked millions from poor people likes him. Looks like a good reason not to support Huckabee.

    This gives you a sense of the intellect of Iowa voters, plus the other states he carried, this is the reason for separation of church and state. The Huckster has crapped in his mess-kit with this one.

    What a circus the GOP has become.

    I'm loving it.

    Yeah! Guess the Huckster has figured out that the GOP's war on crime didn't work so it's ok to associate with criminals. None of the other wars implemented by our Rep President has worked either. We have the highest incarceration rate in the world and crime has continued to climb and terrorism continues to climb as well. Maybe we need to take a different approach.

    Terrible, terrible, terrible decision by Huckabee to associate with Jim Bakker. If this is any example of Huckabee's decision-making skills he deserves nobody's vote for POTUS. SMH, Mike, SMH.
