The Huntsman family must really hate Mitt Romney. That seems to be the only reason jon jr is in the race. He doesn't seem to bother with the other candidates, his whole reason for being there is to get rid of Mitt.
Great reason to spend all that money.

"He doesn't seem to bother with the other candidates"

Because he's not going to get votes from people who support the others, he and Romney (and Pawlenty when he was in it) are the ones fighting for the same voters (what liberals and moderates would call the "sane republicans"). I guess there's some overlap between Huntsman and Paul but Paul voters are devoted and probably the most locked in to their candidate out of any of them.

Daddy's money! Daddy is trying to buy the election?

A JFK quip concerning West Virginia comes to mind. JFK had just squeaked by in WV which was crucial to his getting the Democratic bid. When asked about the closeness of the WV vote, JFK said that Daddy said he would buy WV for him but he was not going to pay for a landslide.

One could also assume that DN must really hate Hunstman ....

It use to be if you're LDS you were probably a republican also, but the GOP keeps getting crazier and crazier. I'm glad Mitt and Huntsman are sort of in the middle. There's too many extreme lefts and rights out there. I don't think LDS members should just blindly follow the republican party anymore.


OK, so try reading their platforms! Most LDS are against abortions and most horribly late term abortions. Read up on how they are done, maybe it would change your mind.
Nobody is blindly following anyone. Read what they stand for.

Yes. Probably all LDS are against abortions as a rule. But maybe you should read the Republican platform and the Church's statement on abortions. The Republican platform is very similar to the defeated proposal in Mississippi. Look at the Republican members of the super committee. No tax increase on the wealthy and its my way or the highway. We could replace the Republicans with robots and save a ton of money.

There is really only "1" real republican candidate worth even talking about the others carry more baggage than a 747. That man is "Jon Huntsman". Poor Mitt I'm sick of hearing about the I I ME ME crap he spews, and being the olympic savior. What garbage. All of you read about the 1.6 to.8 million good ole boy Newt Gingrich accepted from Fredie Mac from 99 to 2008 on msn today his credit card purchases for the misses of his family at expensive jewlery shops ect, ect. Another crook and unqualified like forgetful Cain, Perry Backman and the rest. What a joke these candidates are when you get to what they really are! Unbelievable. Now what a about the media? Do you wonder why they want long, long long primaries? Huntsman's super-pac just paid the out 750,000 in N.H. advertisments lately, is there any wonder why they like to stir the pot and reap the money? Another laugher.


Try reading your comments again. I'm not sure I understand any of it.
FDRFan - you name says it all. Just how much do you want the rich to pay? What percent of their income do you want? Don't the top 1% pay 38% of the taxes collected? 1%! Would you feel good about going to your neighbors home and taking what ever you want from them? Sorry bud, but I'm not a robot and I'm not one of 1% nor anywhere near that, but they don't owe me anything. They pay their fair share. I refuse to pay any more so that obama can give money to his "green" buddies, or to buy guns and walk them across the border (fast and furious) so that he can try and get rid of the 2nd amendment. I'm also sick of all the vacations that the obamas take and don't kid yourself it's mainly on our dime. He's been in office for 3 years and according to him, he thinks about jobs every day. I think he keeps focusing on it, but then gets distracted. You want to talk about a robot - try the deems.

Huntsman isn't really running for the 2012 nomination. Anything he does this year is just trying to position himself for 2016 or 2020. The republican party has moved too far to the right to seriously consider Huntsman but the party could easily shift back in future elections. At 51 years old he will easily be able to run in the future in a more hospital environment.
There's always a chance his fortunes will turn between now and January, but the odds slim at best.

Who's Jon Huntman? Is he the guy who hangs out on the View?

Canuck maybe just maybe when you talk about vacations you should check out the previous president and how many he took over his 8 unfruitful years before you spew about the one in office now. When you get your answer please report it will you?

Actually Teddy is my favorite until he caved in. The top 5% owe me nothing but they certainly did not need the tax reduction while fighting 2 expensive wars.
The "Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength" seem to be singing a different tune than you. And you could teach a hamster to regurgitate the Republican dogma of trickle down, no tax on the job producers and no regulations. That would be even cheaper than robots.


DNews must want some of that super PAC money, why else cover this guy who has zero chance of being elected as a Republican. Daily coverage for a candidate who is in last place? "Daddy, can I borrow a few million to kick-start my dead campaign?"
