    I heard some good words about this guy on Morning Joe. He sounds like what the GOP needs.

    John Huntsman: Can he win 2012 GOP presidential nomination

    He sounds reasonable and has a good understanding of the US-China relationship. He could be the GOP's best chance at regaining the White House. This is the first I have heard of him, but I am impressed. Can the tea party supposrt someone who, reportedly, worked for and likes Obama?

    I like Huntsman. And, as far as I am aware, there is no law prohibiting the TEA Parties from supporting him.

    What's the big deal that he 'worked for' Obama? In point of fact, he 'worked for' us... 'We, the People'... as does Obama. And... why should it bother anyone that he 'likes' Obama? Obama is, probably, a nice guy.

    I'm glad that most liberals aren't as ridiculous as JimH52.

    Nah, too Mormon. He'll never get the nomination. My crystal ball says Tim Pawlenty will win the nomination...and lose to President Obama.

    Smart guy, very 'human', dropped out of college (so clearly he 'hates' education... :lol:) fiscal conservative... very strong foreign relations creds. Looks good on paper. More research is required. Bear in mind.... not so long ago, no one knew who this 'Barack Obama' dude was either.

    They aren't going to support the guy. He use to work for President Obama. That said, he seems like a reasonable fellow.
