    He's highly experienced, having been Guv of Utah and ambassador to China, he's never said Uzbeki...stan, he's not a moron like Bachman, he doesn't have a horribly oversized head like Gingrinch, no n-head's in his past, he's not an azzhole like Santorum and he's flip flopped roughly 9000 fewer times than Romney has. He also has three funny and good looking daughters and drives a Harley. Still he's pulling at best about 1% of the vote.

    WTF?

    He is a RINO and won't fundamentally change the course the country is on.

    Why vote for a dem lite when you can have the real socialist thing.....

    I like Huntsman and have stated that many times in other threads. He is way to sane and qualified to be the GOP candidate for President in this election cycle. That is a sad state of affairs.

    To me he's Romney without all the flip flopping and without MA's UHC law to hide from. That discounts Romney's business experience, but I'm not sure how much weight that carries. I just can't fathom why Santorum, for example, is cleaning his clock.

    he is BY FAR the most lucid and sane of the group, insuring him that he will not get the nomination.

    too bad, he might've gotten my vote.

    The GOP doesn't like Huntsman.......A rational person doesn't do well with GOP voters.

    patsfan13 summed it up when he called him a RINO.

    except that the term "RINO" is meaningless, since being a "Republican" is basically meaningless.

    The only things the GOP has stood for for the past couple decades, at least, are lower taxes and higher spending.

    How does Ronald Reagan stack up on that RINO meter of yours?

    Huntsman is to the right of Romney (or at least more consistent) on issues such as abortion, gun rights, and taxes, and plus he was elected in one of the most conservative states in the nation (Utah), so I'm surprised he hasn't done better than Romney.

    You know the answer. Ronnie was practically a communist. He paid lip service to the anti-abortion crowd, but did nothing substantial. He raised taxes, created record deficits, cut and run from Lebanon after 240 soldiers were murdered by terrorists. Hell, he even colluded with the Soviets to end the Cold War. If that's not liberal, what is! The guy was a Marxist and probably should have brought up by the Republicans on charges of treason!

    Huntsman has really not been part of the conversation from the onset..

    Marketing is a Huntsman issue..

    I think the fact that some of the more liberal posters in this forum like Hunstman, kinda says it all.

    Is that what you have against Huntsman? Or is that what you have against the conservatives who oppose Huntsman?

    Us "liberals" are really trying to find a GOP candidate that isn't insane. I guess you are cool with the the GOP clowns running for president?

    Of course none of the people on this thread who think Huntsman or Romney is peachy would never vote for either, they/you will vote for Obama.


    So why would conservatives care about the opinions of libs as to who the pubs should nominate?

    Would you vote for Huntsman over Obama? Or Romney?

    If not why would conservatives who disagree with him want him to run against Obama?
