Huntsman compares GOP to Communist Party of China
Posted by CNN Producer Gabriella Schwarz
(CNN) Former GOP White House contender Jon Huntsman on Monday explained the comparison he made between the Republican Party and Communist Party of China the night before as "waxing philosophical" on the state of politics.
On Sunday night Huntsman equated being disinvited by the Republican Party from a Florida fundraiser in March after he floated the idea of a third party to "what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script," according to political blog BuzzFeed.
On Monday the former Utah governor, who served as U.S. ambassador to China under President Barack Obama, blamed blogs for taking a sentence out of context, but repeated the sentiment.
"Last night I said, you know if you're not on script and you get knocked out of an event like that the party's supposed to be big tent, you're supposed to bring in all ideas and I said, I thought for a moment about what they do in China if you're off script. The party, they knock you out," Huntsman said on MSNBC. "We shouldn't be doing that here. We should be accommodating all voices."

Now that he is a laughing stock he must be trying to garner favor for another post in Zero’s Administration.
Am I talking about the GOP candidate currently with a lead in delegates, or am I talking about the GOP candidate who feels the party has no room for him?
Romney’s secretary of state?
Exactly. Another liberal we don’t need.
As the song says, “don’t go away mad; just go away.”
Ironic....since....there are more commies in the Democrat Party than there have EVER been (or ever will be) in the GOP.
But then, we all know how slickly leftists lie, project and deflect from the truth.
A third party from Huntsman.
I always suspected he was working for Harry Reid.
I’d compare Huntsman to Chairman Mao.
If Huntsman really believes this why again is he part of the GOP.
Pretending to be a Republican? Oh no. He embodies the Republican Party. The party is liberal. No longer conservative, if indeed it ever was.
Its not unreasonable to compare the RinoCracy..the DC Elite to the Communist Chinese or Russians....its why we keep getting the same, tired recycled minds and ideas in to leadership positions.
I do agree with him that the GOP needs to provide BOLD proposals to turn this government around, but I doubt that he’s thinking along the lines of rolling things back by quite a bit.
Doug Schoen has said that he is going to be backing Huntsman for a third party run and that it IS going to happen. He stated this on Hannity over a month ago. He also feels that Huntsman can pull enough voters from each candidate to make a serious run at it.
Yeah, but he’s got nice hair.
It would be good to have a copy of the communist manifesto with you or have it memorized.
Go through it point by point, and ask which of these the democRat party disagrees with.
Then, have a few choice Proverbs memorized, and ask if the ‘rat party platform agrees with ANY of them.
Everytime I see Huntsman’s name mentioned I picture his little weasly face as he is jumping up and down saying, “Look at me! I’m still here! Pay attention to me! “I’ve got important ideas!”
You know Mika Brzezinski was drooling over him while he was in the race. Maybe he could drain some support from Osama.
He ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow.
Huntsman took off his “Republican” mask and showed his face.
No wonder he wanted to lead the GOP
“Chairman Hunstman” has a certain panache to it
He would sabotage any opportunity with his smarmy and self-righteous nature. I do think he should have a go as a Macy’s Christmas elf.
It could happen. Would he count as the token Cabinet Democrat? I don't see him having trouble with Senate confirmation. He and Newt had a pretty good foreign policy debate.
What’s funny is that he’s right - but not for the reason he thinks.
the GOP does resemble the CP in China due to its willingness to disregard the will of the majority of party members, and continue to foist off an unpopular candidate that only the GOP-E really likes. But then again, only the GOP-E really matters - which is what makes the GOP a lot like the crepuscular CP.
The irony is that Huntsman himself is a part, or was, of that GOP-E that makes the GOP so unresponsive and brittle.
Huntsmen was never a contender.
Kind of like the fox telling on another fox for raiding the chicken coop!
And he wonders why nobody voted for him......sheesh!
