Jon Huntsman the new Rondald Reagan? Hardly
Island Turtle ^ | June 22, 2011 | Corky Boyd

Posted on 06/22/2011 11:12:25 AM PDT by Corky Boyd

Am I the only one who thinks Jon Huntsman is a plant?

Huntsman chose Liberty Park to announce his candidacy, the same place Ronald Reagan chose to launch his campaign as the nominee of the Republican party in September 1980. His Casper Milquetoast announcemant speech at Liberty Park simply can't compare Reagan's and is the same recipe for defeat John McCain gave us. And it's no coincidence, John Weaver Huntsman's top political advisor is a former McCain campaign team member.

Soon you will see the NY Times declaring Huntsman the second coming. A drumbeat from the rest of the legacy media will follow. The horribly skewed NY Times/CBS poll will declare Huntsman a front runner. But even worse, his campaign has the earmarks of recent congressional campaigns of Democrats running as "Tea Party" candidates.

Fortunately he doesn’t have the time or organization to make a dent in the Iowa caucuses. But in New Hampshire, an open primary state, Democrats will cross over and vote for him in the Republican primary in an attempt to torpedo viable conservative contenders....

Do “hardly” and “not hardly” mean the same thing?

If Jon Huntsman isn’t Rondald Reagan, I don’t know who he is.

Huntsman is like the befuddled donkey, “Puzzle”, in C.S. Lewis’ last Narnia volume, The Final Battle. Huntsman is a put up candidate, a marginal Republican and definitely not a conservative. The Dems know that conservatives would only turn out to vote for Huntsman because of an “anyone but Obama” motivation. No love, no fire.

The question is, “Who is his “Shift”?

“An ape named Shift has persuaded a well-meaning but simple donkey called Puzzle to dress in a lion’s skin and pretend to be the Great Lion Aslan. Shift, using Puzzle as his pawn, convinces the Narnians that he speaks for Aslan.”

John senior had one of his son’s kidnapped when he was a teenager. I wonder if it was this one.

Huntsman may be exactly what we need to beat Romney. If the RINO’s have to divide their vote between Huntsman and Romney, it gives Tea Party candidates a chance to win the primary.

True. And it’s the only redeeming value in his candidacy in fact.

Did you catch him on Hannity the other day?
He said Obama is a ‘good, family man’- just like McLame!

I flipped though the morning talk shows today...the anchor babe on TODAY fell short of having sex, on the air, with Huntsman, but just barely.

CBS, ABC, and CNN all proclaimed him the second coming.

Do these people get their talking points from the same fax printout? Does it say DNC at the top? Whom are they kidding? Only themselves.

He went to Kennebunkport to kiss the ring. Do NOT take that lightly.

After reading an earlier Thread headline that indicated this man contributed $25K to Reid, I would say ummmmm no.

None of these GOP presidential candidates dare to say anything about the threat of Islam to our country, because that would not be PC.

They can talk all they want about the economy, national security, national healthcare, etc., but if Islam continues to grow at the rate it is in this country, there won’t be an economy or freedom and we will only have turd world status to look forward to.

Will you inform Sean Hannity because he was drooling all over himself during his Huntsman interview?

People who truly make history do not spend their time trying to symbolically repeat it.

Mr. Huntzman, you are no Ronald Reagan; and attaching yourself to symbolic poses from HIS history will not bestow his gifts on you. Life does not work that way. The symbol wears off as the substance is lacking.

Huntsman is certainly out of the same mold that created McCain, the mold that was formed of beliefs Obama was a good father, loved the USA, and was/would be a good POTUSA not withstanding his intentions to change our Constitution. Huntsman is a shill for internationalism/new world order(Bush1). I read he was a high school dropout so he must have done some marvelous things as son of a billionaire to become Obama’s ambassador to China.
