The Huntsman family must really hate Mitt Romney. That seems to be the only
reason jon jr is in the race. He doesn't seem to bother with the other
candidates, his whole reason for being there is to get rid of Mitt.Great
reason to spend all that money.
@Canuk"He doesn't seem to bother with the other candidates"Because he's not going to get votes from people who support the others,
he and Romney (and Pawlenty when he was in it) are the ones fighting for the
same voters (what liberals and moderates would call the "sane
republicans"). I guess there's some overlap between Huntsman and Paul but
Paul voters are devoted and probably the most locked in to their candidate out
of any of them.
Daddy's money! Daddy is trying to buy the election?
A JFK quip concerning West Virginia comes to mind. JFK had just squeaked by in
WV which was crucial to his getting the Democratic bid. When asked about the
closeness of the WV vote, JFK said that Daddy said he would buy WV for him but
he was not going to pay for a landslide.

family must really hate Mitt Romney. One could also assume that DN
must really hate Hunstman ....
It use to be if you're LDS you were probably a republican also, but the GOP
keeps getting crazier and crazier. I'm glad Mitt and Huntsman are sort of in
the middle. There's too many extreme lefts and rights out there. I don't think
LDS members should just blindly follow the republican party anymore.
Theeng2OK, so try reading their platforms! Most LDS are against abortions
and most horribly late term abortions. Read up on how they are done, maybe it
would change your mind.Nobody is blindly following anyone. Read what they
Canuk | 12:46 p.m. Nov. 16, 2011SALT LAKE CITY, UT Yes.
Probably all LDS are against abortions as a rule. But maybe you should read the
Republican platform and the Church's statement on abortions. The Republican
platform is very similar to the defeated proposal in Mississippi. Look at the
Republican members of the super committee. No tax increase on the wealthy and
its my way or the highway. We could replace the Republicans with robots and save
a ton of money.
There is really only "1" real republican candidate worth even talking
about the others carry more baggage than a 747. That man is "Jon
Huntsman". Poor Mitt I'm sick of hearing about the I I ME ME crap he spews,
and being the olympic savior. What garbage. All of you read about the 1.6 to.8
million good ole boy Newt Gingrich accepted from Fredie Mac from 99 to 2008 on
msn today his credit card purchases for the misses of his family at expensive
jewlery shops ect, ect. Another crook and unqualified like forgetful Cain, Perry
Backman and the rest. What a joke these candidates are when you get to what they
really are! Unbelievable. Now what a about the media? Do you wonder why they
want long, long long primaries? Huntsman's super-pac just paid the out 750,000
in N.H. advertisments lately, is there any wonder why they like to stir the pot
and reap the money? Another laugher.
Try reading your comments again. I'm not sure I understand any of it.FDRFan - you name says it all. Just how much do you want the rich to pay? What
percent of their income do you want? Don't the top 1% pay 38% of the taxes
collected? 1%! Would you feel good about going to your neighbors home and taking
what ever you want from them? Sorry bud, but I'm not a robot and I'm not one of
1% nor anywhere near that, but they don't owe me anything. They pay their fair
share. I refuse to pay any more so that obama can give money to his
"green" buddies, or to buy guns and walk them across the border (fast
and furious) so that he can try and get rid of the 2nd amendment. I'm also sick
of all the vacations that the obamas take and don't kid yourself it's mainly on
our dime. He's been in office for 3 years and according to him, he thinks about
jobs every day. I think he keeps focusing on it, but then gets distracted. You
want to talk about a robot - try the deems.
Huntsman isn't really running for the 2012 nomination. Anything he does this
year is just trying to position himself for 2016 or 2020. The republican party
has moved too far to the right to seriously consider Huntsman but the party
could easily shift back in future elections. At 51 years old he will easily be
able to run in the future in a more hospital environment. There's always a
chance his fortunes will turn between now and January, but the odds slim at
Who's Jon Huntman? Is he the guy who hangs out on the View?
Canuck maybe just maybe when you talk about vacations you should check out the
previous president and how many he took over his 8 unfruitful years before you
spew about the one in office now. When you get your answer please report it will

Teddy is my favorite until he caved in. The top 5% owe me nothing but they
certainly did not need the tax reduction while fighting 2 expensive wars.The "Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength" seem to be singing
a different tune than you. And you could teach a hamster to regurgitate the
Republican dogma of trickle down, no tax on the job producers and no
regulations. That would be even cheaper than robots.
DNews must want some of that super PAC money, why else cover this guy who has
zero chance of being elected as a Republican. Daily coverage for a candidate
who is in last place? "Daddy, can I borrow a few million to kick-start my
