Any reporting on this connection ... anywhere?

In SC, Huntsman defends Romney's record at Bain

Huntsman abandons Republican presidential race, throws support to Romney

Very cozy connection .. and kept so under the radar. And, after appearing on Huck's form this past weekend, he suddenly drops out .. leaving MR in a better position? Strange personal decision .. or political bargain??

maggief's done her usual great sleuthing on the Hunstman/Bain connections .. HERE .. (thanks, maggie!) Note the comment from: Jon Huntsman Sr.:

HUNTSMAN (Sr.): "And, Mitt Romney , I love . I have known Mitt since he was a young — young boy, really."

~~~~~~

Purty dang cozy ...........

Notice that there is very little coverage of Newt even on Fox. Romney is the boy for Fox and they will do anything to give Newt as little time as they can. Yes, the fix is in for their boy Romney.

Huntsman is a money making machine. Only a fool would turn down a chance at some of that action.

Huntsman has known Slick Willard since he was a young boy because they’re related.

Yesterday: Huntsman drops out and endorses Romney. Today: Bain becomes sugar daddy for Huntsman's company.

(Mormons taking care of their own?)

Great!
Huntsman candidacy was nothing more than a trick play to deceive the voters of New Hampshire into not voting for a conservative when they cast their vote for anyone but Mitt.

And that’s another thing...

The Pratt–Romney Family is the name of a U.S. political family. It is linked by marriage to the Smith Family and the Matheson Family. Considered the patriarch is former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney,[1] who is also a cousin of Pratt descendant and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Jr.

Mitt is handing cash out to the homeless and now buying out candidates? My question in the end does our vote really count or does the bankster and medial control elections.
