Hmm, if you think that I do not care for the Huntsman flavor, Erick Erickson over at RedState H A T E S Mr. Huntsman. Do read the whole link. But take this away and wonder if you would like this as a potential president of the United States:
The reason I will never, ever support Jon Huntman is simple: While serving as the United States Ambassador to China, our greatest strategic adversary, Jon Huntsman began plotting to run against the President of the United States. This calls into question his loyalty not just to the President of the United States, but also his loyalty to his country over his own naked ambition.
OUCH! I did not even go this far. But Erick is spot on!
The leftywhore media is trying desperately to pick the Republican candidate for president in 2012.
The ways that you can tell is who they are propping up as "good" Republicans.
The first is the Indiana governor, Mitch Daniels. Now I believe that he has been a good governor for Indiana. A solid conservative. But, Gov. Daniels is beyond a Johnny Onenote. He is way to focused on the potential of economic collapse of the United States, a real possibility, that he wants to not discuss any other issues.
Where Gov. Daniels got into big trouble is suggesting that there be a "truce" declared on the so-called social issues. That conservatives and liberals can put aside their very profound differences on many social issues and focus on fixing the broken federal government.
That is music to the ears of the leftywhore media.
They hate conservative Republicans that speak about defending the unborn. Supporting traditional marriage. Believe that crime needs to be dealt with sure and swift. That the death penalty is something to continue. That racial quotas and or affirmative action are wrong remedies to problems that have actually changed-for the better-over time.
Now, the new flavor of the leftywhore media is the former ambassador to Red China for Democrat President Obama, Republican former Utah governor John Huntsman, Jr.
Look at that. A bipartisan election. A former Obama administration official running against him in a general election.
And one that has a record that the leftywhore media like.
For instance, Mr. Huntsman is a believer in Globalloney Warming. He was all in on the issue. Why he even got together with the biggest RINO of all, Benedict Arnold Schwarzenegger, on the act back when they were both governors in 2007.
That is one reason I am weary of a potential Huntsman candidacy. Also why I am weary of the former Minnesota governor, Tim Pawlenty. If one is a conservative, and Republican and believes in Globaloney Warming, it is a non-starter for this conservative Republican.
And if one looks at this on Wikipedia, Mr. Huntsman likes working with the other team.
The telling graph:
Huntsman is a Republican, with conservative fiscal credentials and conservative to moderate positions on some social issues. He has been described as "a conservative technocrat-optimist with moderate positions who was willing to work substantively with President Barack Obama."
Yes, that always seems to work well for conservative Republicans. Work with the other team. Hey, Huntsman and your ilk. The other team does not want to work with you. They want to work you over. They want you to change your mind and support their policies.
And that, my friends, is why Mr. Huntsman is the new flavor of the leftywhore media.
Because he is a bore. And is not confrontational. And even believes in some of what the other side believes.
Not just actual Republican primary voters need to be leery of this, but the American public.
If you are dissatisfied with the current leadership, why just change color and model? How about the whole thing? How about someone that stands up for what he or she believes? The other side does it all the time. And are praised to the highest heaven for it. Yet when we do, we are fill-in-the-blank. Eeeeevvviiiiillllll! Racist. Homophobic. Haters. Deniers. The blanks go on.
So, the leftywhore media want you to believe that the only way to defeat the Dear Leader, President Obama, is with a candidate that is bland, boring and non-inspiring.
Do not trust their praise of Jon Huntsman, Jr. He is just another flavor for the leftywhore media.
