Huntsman is to be lauded for doing what few in politics have the personal
fortitude to do. And that is to put personal ethics and beliefs above party
politics and long-term political career. The vast majority in office are willing
to sacrifice the long-term good of society for short-term job security and
appearance... thereby passing on obligations and responsibilities to future
generations. Our record setting national deficit is a prime example. We reap the
benefit while a future generation has to pay the price. It's something that
is apparently easy to rationalize in today's "me-first" political
environment. "Let someone else worry about it later... after I'm
gone." Actually, the me-first mind-frame seems to be as old as
politics itself. Throughout history, the few political leaders who truly put the
good of society first and have a genuine desire to serve others while not
putting their own political careers first as a motive for their decisions is
indeed rare. In also being critical of his own long-term political party,
Huntsman's motives appear honorable and not so self-serving in this
situation. My hat's off to him.
How courageous of the good former governor. It real tough to stand on the
sidelines "as a citizen" of the world and criticize those who are
actually in the fray. And, then endorse someone who has demonstrated a lack of
ethics in public for all to read.
First, Huntsman is indeed self-serving. He's planning for another run.
Second, Hellooo: where has Romney demonstrated a lock of ethics? don't
throw out accusations without evidence, because then you're like Obama
(Cambridge police, Ag employee, Trayvon Martin).
I like Huntsman a lot. He's cultured, open minded, 'with it' and
not tied down to any religion, ethnic group, or extreme biases.
Governor - start at home by reading the For The Strength of Youth pamphlet with
your young single adult daughters. Flip to page on modesty, show it to them,
then read slowly and carefully, stopping only for emphasis and to entertain
questions. The other stuff will take care of itself.
Anti Bush-ObamaWashington, DCJon Hunstman has attended Bilderberg
this year. If anybody knows who they are, they are the richest people in the
world who meet in secret to discuss U.S. and world policy. Any american who
attends these meetings is a traitor and in violation if the logan act which is a
FELONY.11:14 a.m. June 1, 2012================ Like Rick Perry, Mark Sanford, Collin Powell, William Buckley, &
CEOs of MicroSoft, Amazon, Google, and the Washington Post?FYI -
Most Bildebergs are Republican, or from Republican administrations....that
should be setting off some bells for those who have eyes to see, and eyes to
hear.It's also why I steer clear of Republicans.
@airnautFYI, Obama has gone to the Bilderberg meeting every year
since 2007. In fact, in 2007 he went with Hilary Clinton (they were the last
two Democratic presidential nominees at the time) and she unexpectedly dropped
out of the race the day after the meeting.Guess you should steer
clear of Democrats too...
@Heater - I'm sure your children never do anything wrong, but when they do,
I sure hope your ward members are there to correct them. In other words, why
don't you mind your own business and let others mind theirs. I don't
think you need to be the moral police for other members. Just "stop it".

then Mitt can take his boys aside and tell them how to avoid serving there
country. I believeHutsman has two sons now involved in the armed services.
It's comments like Heater's that remind me why I am an atheist and
really dislike judgmental religious folk.
To: A Scientist...you must remember that Heater's opinion is only that.an
opinion. By remaining an atheist and judging Mr. Heater you still are not ahead
because you are missing out on the most wonderful fact...there is a God, a
wonderful, loving and forgiving God who loves all and wants His children to be
happy, hopeful and have loving hearts. You must remember, it's the Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that is perfect..not its members. We strive
with all our might to be good examples of Jesus Christ and because we are not
perfect we make mistakes like everyone else. The Gospel offers everything and
anything you are in need of to everyone and it's my hope you will reach out
and allow your heart to be healed and really learn about the goodness and
happiness in believing there is a God who's son Jesus Christ atoned for
your sins as well as mine by giving his life.
Nuh-uh! Huntsman endorsed Richard Burwash alias Mike Winder? Doesn't that
completely discount anything else he says?
Re:BraveSirRobinBilderberg makes public the list of attendees at
bilderbergmeetings org I could only find the list for 2010-2012 and Obama's
name is not on the list for 2010, 2011, or 2012. Most of the attendees appear
to be from outside the U.S. Bill Gates and Peggy Noonan (conservative
journalist) attended in 2010. Huntsman was on the 2012 list. Next
@ airnaut:So you are comfortable with the likes of George Soros as the
master puppeteer inside the Obama control circle?
Huntsman embodies those of the population who would like to keep the financial
house in order.At the current financial status, if this country were
a homeowner it would be cut off at a bank and if this were 4 years ago USA would
have their house taken away from them. The existing president and congress
take the attitude of "who cares". Neither candidate has a plan to fix
the problem. If Pres Obama gets back in with his economic plan Mitt
will have to pay an additional 5 million in taxes. Mitt would allow the wealthy
to keep their money and balance the budget on the backs of the elderly and
retired.Neither plan really works. When $.48 out of every tax dollar
is spent on military there is a problem, when most free countries spen 7-9% of
GDP on healthcare this country spends 18% and has a substandard healthcare
product. Congress has a chokehold on the country with zero accountability.The most important thing we should decide is who is captain of this
It's all about politics with this guy. Nothing he says means anything to
me. I feel nothing, I believe nothing. One of the most disingenuous politicians
I've ever heard.
