    He seems like a sane and honorable gentleman to me. Why doesn't the right like him?

    The fact that you like him is sufficient cause for denying him the nomination.

    He's a RINO who believes in the global warming hocus-pocus.

    enough said.

    So believing what nearly every credible scientist says is definitely happening makes one a RINO? THAT explains a lot.

    Because he's a leftist.

    I mean, he'd be a perfectly fine candidate if you really think it is the business of government to regulate what kind of light bulb you should put in your house and how much water should be in your toilet.

    He's a really good candidate if you think that what you earn belongs to the government, and you should be grateful for what they let you keep.

    The thing is, if you are the kind of person who thinks that John Huntsman would be a fine president, then you are probably the kind of person who thinks (despite all evidence to the contrary) that Barack Obama is a fine president.

    So what would be the point of voting for him? Might as well keep Obama.

    Of course, I wouldn't vote for him for the same reason I wouldn't vote for Romney. He belongs to a whacky cult I hate.

    What I have noticed is that there seems to be a real animus between Romney and Huntsman. These guys just don't like each other and it must be some weird Mormon thing.

    If the science backs it up, why do they keep having to fabricate data?

    That's just it, the right can't connect with sane. They only like someone crazier than them, it makes them feel better about themselves.
