"That's pressured New Hampshire to move up its own presidential primary,
which is supposed to be the first in the nation."Wow, who says
they have to be first? Sounds like elementary school when some kids want to be
the line leader.
Jon Huntsman is boycotting next week's Republican presidential debate in Nevada.
Why is that, is his harley in the shop?. Or was it, these 2 Republican
presidential hopefuls are trying to push Nevada into pulling back on its
mid-January caucus date, siding with New Hampshire in its showdown with other
states over scheduling early primaries and caucuses. Or perhaps, it's never
good when you have to come into the spin room after a debate as your own
surrogate. It's the political equivalent of wearing a bell to warn people away
from you. However, Jon Huntsman stood like a wimp after a debate in which he was
little more than an afterthought. However, right at the beginning of the
gaggle, he broached an issue that hadn't come up. "I am disappointed,"
he said, "that, in a debate about the economy, we didn't even confront the
issue of too-big-to-fail. Now, up until the sleeping bags began to bloom in the
cities, the standard Republican position on the forces that crashed the economy
was to blame Barney Frank, and lazy overextended poor people, and a 30-year old
banking law. In fact, that dead horse took another beating.
He is a non-factor in the race, no big deal, it only hurt his already limited

Herman Cain says that "stupid people are ruining America," Its all over. The Republicans are going with Cain. Prima faccie evidence of
his own statement above.
Nobody cares if Huntsman boycotts the debate, he's irrelevant anyway, will go
nowhere, and I would have trouble voting for him if he was the GOP nominee. He's
in the wrong party.
In Mr. Huntsman's case, I don't think it's going to make much of a difference.
I may boycott that debate as well.
I don't know.....This decision may prove to be his downfall.
........but it may open a huge door for Ron Paul.
No one will even notice that he isn't there.
Jonathan, Ron Paul is already well ahead of Huntsman with a much more passionate
following. I don't think Huntsman will affect him at all.Don't know
what Huntsman feels he stands to gain by taking sides in this argument between
state party organizations, or by staying in the race at all for that matter.
Maybe he feels he will ingratiate himself to New Hampshirites and help his cause
there. But at what cost? Wish him well all the same.
I would not be surprised if in 2016 the aforementioned Mr Huntsman ran as a
Maybe Gary Johnson can take his place and gain some real traction.
