    He's out in my book.

    Huntsman's Family Has Donated $25,000 to Reid

    Newly announced GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his family have forged close ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., over the years. Although Huntsman never has donated to a Reid campaign himself, members of his family, including his parents and brothers, have sent $25,000 to the Senate’s top Democrat, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

    He's not as conservative as the media is making him out to be. Can you spell RINO.

    Why on earth should I oppose a candidate merely because his parents and siblings donated to a poor candidate in another party? That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    I haven't determined my position on Huntsman yet, but this has got to be one of the dumbest reasons I've ever heard for opposing someone. No offense.

    The old saying if you lay with dogs you will get fleas apply's in this case. Huntsman sounds more like a John McCain, and we really don't need another McCain

    He's the great gop hope like McCain was. He seems less extreme. Not that I care but it's a mistake for Rs to be so inflexible about their candidates.

    Great GOP hope? That's laughable. RINOs like him don't stand a chance.

    Thats why Hillary lost to Obama. We found out that she ate at a godfathers pizza parlor. Naturally we libs then made the connection to Herman Cain and she was finished.:razz:

    I think Huntsman could end up as the VP on the ticket
