Sources: Former GOP Candidate Huntsman to Speak at DNC Convention
Big Government ^ | August 10, 2012 | Mike Flynn

Posted on 08/10/2012 4:29:10 PM PDT by Zakeet

I have to admit, the Huntsman candidacy for President never made much sense to me. When it began I thought: wait, this guy served in the Obama Administration and now wants to run against him? And I didn't really get any further than that. Maybe, though, it was simply Himalayan-sized political ambition. According to very credible sources, Huntsman has accepted a speaking slot at the Democrat convention in Charlotte next month.

So, first the guy stabs the GOP in the back to work for Obama. Then, he stabs Obama in the back to run against him. And now Huntsman's political circle-of-life is complete; once again, apparently, stabbing the GOP in the back to campaign for Obama.

I hope it isn't. If it were true, it would have meant someone might have slipped up on his medications.

Now I'm thinking, thinking, thinking. Replacement for Huntsman. How 'bout Jonny McCain for the dem convention? He loves that hands across the aisle stuff.

——But, the information came to me from a very high-ranking Republican official who assured me the information came from “very credible sources.”——

Probably the same source Reid is using ....

LOL Maybe they can bring in Fred Karger too. Few people seem to realize that he’s leading the charge to boycott Amway and the DeVos family over their support of traditional marriage.

Makes me go hmmm. Could it be that the rumor that Huntsman’s father is the source of Reid’s allegation that Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years might be true?

Honestly, does a single person actually care what Jon Huntsman thinks? All they’re doing is wasting a speaking slot.

Isn’t John Huntsman still technically running for president under the “No Labels” banner?

I never payed any really much attention to the No Labels group that Huntsman belongs to because I assumed they were your typical moderates but looking at their website now and it sounds like they want a dictatorship.

No labels 11 ways to make the presidency work

1.Regular News Conferences for the President

2.Fast-Track Legislative Authority for The President

3.Make The Parties Pay for Presidential Fundraising

4.A Line Item Veto With A Twist

5.Reduce the Number of Appointees Subject to Senate Confirmation

6.Identify a “Slate That Can’t Wait” of Critical Nominees For Expedited Confirmation

7.Up or Down Vote on Presidential Appointment

8.Question Time for The Presiden

9.Expanded Presidential Power to Reorganize

10.Different Opinions, But the Same Facts

11.Regular Meetings Between The President And Congressional Leadership

Did the wealthy Huntsman pay his taxes? Unlike Rommney who gave away his inheritance from his father, Hunstman relied on his daddy to gain his wealth.

Joe Blow Scarborough was a big Huntsman toadie, and I remember that there were a few FReepers as well that tried to push him. Those love letters to Obama and Clinton finished him before he even started though, so I'm not surprised.

Yeah... that is a stalinist bunch of reds if ever there were any. When you study marx, engels, lenin and stalin... and you look at the rhetoric and agenda of the left today... they are one in the same... they are using the communist plan for internal takeover.

Well we all knew Huntsman was a worthless liberal puke during the primary. He has returned to the fold.
