Via Buzzfeed, former presidential candidate Jon Huntsman reminds us why he received the most favorable coverage from the media, and yet consistently polled at or near the bottom of the heap before dropping out of the GOP race.
Recounting his first experience on the presidential debate stage in Iowa last August, Huntsman says he was struck by the question Is this the best we could do?
Huntsman, the former Utah governor and once President Barack Obamas Ambassador to China, expressed disappointment that the Republican Party disinvited him from a Florida fundraiser in March after he publicly called for a third party.
This is what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script, he said.
Huntsman said he regrets his decision to oppose a 10-to-1 spending cuts to tax increase deal to cut the deficit at the Iowa debate lamenting: if you can only do certain things over again in life.
What went through my head was if I veer at all from my pledge not to raise any taxes
then Im going to have to do a lot of explaining, he explained. What was going through my mind was dont I just want to get through this?

“Jon Huntsman = Charlie Crist = Traitors to the Republican party.”

Democrats are my enemy. Democrats are the enemy of America. I anger Democrats by voting Republican. You can do as you please.
Fair enough...liberals are my enemy...GOP or Democrat.
