I wonder if it ever occurred to people that maybe the reason the media was there
was so that Huntsman could help raise awareness and acceptance of this religion
that few people in the US understand? it is amazing how so many republicans
posters seem to feel the need to attack his motives, do you really see him is
such a threat to your desire to push the republican party even further to the
right that you have to attack one of your own? I do not agree with
Huntsman's politics but I have respect for him as a person.
About a year ago, Mr. Hunstman his wife and youngest daughter were in a picture
with "bindis" on the foreheads. This is a mark that in many Hindues
wear.Mr. Hunstman feels an affinity with India, perhaps through his
daughter, or any other reason. whatever it is. He is in the right place at the
right time.You may doubt his motives, but obviously he is not the
one with the problem.
@ DN Subscriber: Kind of like when Palin spoke out in support of Chick-fil-A,
I'm wondering why he did this too...did the media need to be there? And
why was he smiling so much while talking to KSL during what should have been a
VERY somber time?
I'll accept that Huntsman's totally appropriate expression of sympathy
to the Sikh community is just that.However, I question why it was
arranged to have media coverage of it. That just reminds me that he is a
politician, and desperate for attention since his repudiation by Republicans
during his failed campaign for President. A photo op, nothing more.
@ Aggielove: Gee, I don't know - what possible motive could someone have
for showing support for a community which has just been terrorized?The motive couldn't be just to show support and solidarity could it?Your assumption of an ulterior motive speaks more about you than it does
anyone else. And what it speaks saddens me. What a horrible world.
Gee, Aggie, maybe he's just a compassionate conservative. I know it's
highly unlikely for a GOP politico to have compassion for ordinary folks, but
Jon Huntsman just might have that quality.
I'm really trying to understand his motives here.
Jon Huntsman is a class guy, all the way. I'm not sure what else I could
