Skip to comments.(FWIW)Huntsman on SNL Last Night
Posted on 11/20/2011 2:01:03 AM PST by SMGFan
(Feeling I needed a link as proof) I caught the end of my overnight recording on SNL and saw Jason Segel thank at the end John Huntstman. The report is Huntsman appeared on Weekend Update trying to make progress in New Hampshire. The segment may be available soon. He has no chance , but his daughters are certainly lovely women.
msnbc online has a more detailed report, but I doubt I should link to first read msnbc ( would it be allowed?)
Y’know, that liberal fella who was Zero’s Ambassador to China. Thinks he’s a Republican.
Eww... no. You’ll infect the whole FR website.
I just looked up globalist in the dictionary.
It had Huntsman’s picture.
A liberal like Huntsman would go over well with the SNL audience.
Let’s see the show invite a conservative on as guest. Maybe Herman Cain?
I won’t hold my breath.
“He has no chance , but his daughters are certainly lovely women.”
Thank God. All we need is Kardashian wannabes in the WH.
They’re hot. A pity we can’t have multiple hot-looking presidents. I’d vote for all of ‘em!
I will settle for competent.
“I have smoking hot daughters, so vote for me.”
It’s a good argument.

Yeah, they are pretty hot.
Kind of unseemly though, for a candidate to promote his own daughters for their T&A value to his campaign.
They are much more interesting than their old man.
Huntsman can’t be President after that bit on SNL. He has serious prompter issues. But he was cute in the bit. He mocked his own poll numbers.
However, the opening skit last night was HILARIOUS. It was Mitt Romney (played by Jason Sudeikis, who has the ROmney smile down PAT) from his campaign headquarters, trying to show how he has had sexual improprieties TOO, and he can flub on camera TOO, desperate to try to seem edgy to raise his poll numbers. L-O=L funny.
Huntsman signs popping up all around New Hampshire the last few days...
“Huntsman signs popping up all around New Hampshire the last few days...”
Very pleased to read this. Last three New Hampshire polls have shown him at 7%, 8% and now 9%. Not much I grant you, but there is a steady pattern there.
If he catches fire in New Hampshire, Huntsman is potentially the biggest threat to Romney there. He is also the most likely to get under Romney’s skin (”well-lubricated weather-vane”, the flipping monkey ad).
I’ve been savaged on FR for saying this before, but I believe that Huntsman may well be not only the candidate with the best chance of beating Obama, but he’s also MUCH more conservative than people realize. The reason being that he has made the conscious decision to campaign like a “moderate” and has used “centrist/moderate” rhetoric. I believe he is doing this because he feels he will be well positioned for the general election.....but obviously it’s not the best strategy for the primary.
If you delve into his actual record as governor, it is as conservative as any candidate that is running, with the possible exception of Michele Bachmann. He’s definitely more conservative, and you can make the case that he is more conservative than Perry and Newt.
Thank you! You may have been savaged on FR for stating this, but wear those scars as a badge of honor St. Louis Conservative!
Politicians often lie. Their record rarely does.
Huntsman can beat Obama handily. That was probably part of the reason why Obama offered him the China post. To clear the field of his potentially most dangerous opponent in 2012. Yet again, Obama has been caught out trying to be too clever. He has actually provided Huntsman with the silver bullet for next November.
If Huntsman wins the nomination, Obama simply can’t play that tired old “My opponent is too dangerous, too unstable, too erratic to be trusted with the White House” card. Huntsman only has to raise that eye-brow of his and reply with “then why did you appoint me ambassador to China?”
Huntsman actually has accomplishments and experience on the international stage, and executive accomplishments and experience back home.
He will school Obama, and beat him decisively. Not sure how many other candidates I’m confident of saying that about, right now.
