    I'm still not decided on who I will support. I've been leaning in different directions over the course of the campaign. Every candidate has things that I like and things that I dislike. So I've told myself I am going to seriously reevaluate all the candidates still in the race.

    I've been looking at Jon Huntsman Jr. again. I'm not living in a fantasy world where I believe he is an ideal conservative. Frankly, I find problems with all of the candidates on that regard. But I've been checking out the issues he is actually running on and they are far more conservative than I was expecting. Check out his issues: Jon Huntsman on the Issues: Jobs, Foreign Policy, & More | Huntsman 2012

    Now he does have a bit of an ego. And I am not honestly happy about that. But I think maybe the knee jerk rejection of him over a few statement's he has made is not the best idea.

    What do you think about the issues he is running on? I'm curious.

    You best bet to beat Obama, if he hadn't worked for Obama and wasn't a Mormon. He won't win the southern states in the primaries.

    If Republicans would uniformly vote for him he could possibly win, not a chance in hell.

    Can someone actually discuss any of the issues? I dont really care what you think his shot against Obama is. I want to know what you think of his issues. Which ones do you support? Which ones are you opposed to?

    It should be. Its sneaky and low down. If you don't like what someone posts, say so but don't change their words.

    The pub/baggy candidates who lift phrases out of context and then lie about what was said. They shouldn't get away with it either.
