Nice essay. I hope your assumptions are right.
Yes he has done a good job, but the silver spoon is the ticket. Since high
school he has had personal advisors and mentors that tailored every step.
Private speech, tutoring and other schooling that are not accessible to the
public. He did a good job - not knocking anything. But drop any average Utah
teen into the same situation of forming etc and they would do the same. He is a
product of the best money can shape. Thank him for his time and wish him well.
Why the put down for Palin. Huntsman and his family were not used for political
pin cushions and sexual dehumanizing.
You said "Huntsman and his family were not used for political pin cushions and
sexual dehumanizing." Truth is, neither were Palin and her family. Palin was
"subjected" to the truth. I know that truth hurts sometimes. Telling the truth
about Palin apparently did.
What does Palin have to do with Huntsman? Other than the fact that they both
believe in Christ, the comparison stops there.BTW - He did grow into the
job by buying into the scam of global warming.
While it may be true that Jon Huntsman was groomed for success, there are any
number of examples of children of wealthy and/or successful familities that
reject such assistance and choose very dysfunctional or destructive life styles
instead. Everyone has choices, and Jon Huntsman opted to use his to his best
advantage. Others have failed despite the assistance of wealth and family
(e.g., some of the Kennedy clan and at least one Reagan), so in Jon Huntsman's
case, I believe his success to be a combination of personal drive and charisma
as well as a lot of backup from family position. Kudos to Jon Huntsman. I hope
to see him involved in national politics in the not too distant future. He is a
credit to Utah and will ultimately be a credit to his country.
Presiding over a time of economic growth is not the same as creating an economic
engine in an economic downturn. He coasted during the good times and bailed at
thefirst signs of trouble. An overrated emty suit who looks out for the interest
of Jon huntsman. I don't believe it is possible to get a poor job performance
rating in this state.
I had the chance to brief Ambassador Huntsman in preperation for his trip to
China. I found him to be intelligent, and a pretty nice guy. My impression after
a couple of hours. I'd vote for him in a minute.
I'm glad you liked him Obama.
Huntsman was an excellent governor. Even though, with his family wealth, he can
do what ever he wants, and he has chosen to serve society. Huntsman is a
conservative who gets global warming, gay rights, etc. and is actually living in
the twenty first century. He is a very admirable person, and will be the
prototype for the republican's march out of the political wilderness.
