Mike Huckabee Wants Term RINO Dropped from Vernacular One term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party is 'RINO,'" Huckabee wrote on his Facebook page on Monday. "It stands for Republicans in Name Only, and it’s a pejorative term that questions the authenticity and orthodoxy of someone’s party purity. I’ve been called that myself, even though I fought in the trenches of Republican politics for over two decades. Even so, I would never pretend that I’m Lord over determining who the real Republicans are." He then said many Republicans would call Abraham Lincoln a RINO. After questioning whether conservatives "really want to save America," he said they should "be focusing on their real differences with the left, not committing fratricide." "Personally, I think someone who agrees with me 90% of the time is not my enemy," he wrote. "I’d rather have a loyal dog that licks me than one with a pedigree that bites me. I’d rather go into battle with someone who isn’t perfect than with someone who thinks he is." Fred Dryer: GOP is Center-Left Party Fred Dryer, actor and all-pro defensive end claimed that anyone who shows himself as a Republican candidate for president of the United States is washed and rinsed by the party apparatchik and scoured of any independent thinking. He is taught to “preach the party line and the party line is left of center.” Dryer continued to excoriate the Republicans, asserting that the “cowardice” of the party today is matched only by its “myopic” opinion of itself. He said, "After all things are said and done, you get a party that is committed to nothing.” The former NFL legend claims that the Republican party has abandoned the Constitution. “The only way you can have a President like we have today is to make sure your kids don’t learn anything about the Constitution,” he opined.
