    During an event at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, Huntsman spoke candidly about his party's flaws, lamenting the Republican National Committee's decision to rescind an invitation to a major fundraising event after Huntsman called for a third-party candidate to enter the race.

    "This is what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script," Huntsman said.

    Huntsman, however, did not actively campaign in Iowa, telling CBS News in December that "they pick corn," not presidents, in that early caucus state.

    Jon Huntsman Criticizes Republican Party, Compares Actions To Communist China

    So I'm watching Morning Joe and Jon Huntsman was asked about his comments. He said they were taken totally out of context. He said, "All I said was that in Communist China, if you go off script you get booted". Not sure how saying it nearly exactly the same the second time makes the context any different.

    Then it got worse. He was asked why he did pander to the Republican extremists the way Romney and the other candidates have and he said his wife told him that if he signed any of those silly pledges, she would leave him. Pretty sure that was a nod to "Grover Norquist".

    Hmmm, the Communist Party. And it's a "conservative" Republican former governor with an 80% approval rating that said it.

    See? I can agree with Republicans. Depends on whether or not they are telling the truth, like Jon Huntsman was on this issue.

    Then they (Joe and Jon) went on talking about the Republican Response to Katrina, the Iraq fiasco, Enron, the ruined economy and all the other Republican disasters. And why we should consider a third party.

    Oh, and Jon was "booted" from a Republican event for talking "off script". Didn't see THAT coming. Uh huh!

    Kinda looks like Stephanie & Si have proved a point. Tell conservatives what they don't want to hear and expect to be attacked with nonsense.

    An unbiased assessment would be that China is transitioning into capitalism while democrats are transitioning into communism. China is becoming more republican even as democrats embrace the failed policies of Chairman Mao.

    think of how they attack anyone who placed in their faces facts they JUST CAN NOT REFUTE?
