    why would that surprise you?

    i'm not being facetious. huntman was the smartest person in the GOP line-up... and while conservative, he understood the limits of where the radical religious right could push this country.

    he also, by virtue of working with the president as his ambassador to china, proved a level of bi-partisanship what should be appealing to normal conservatives.

    and the fact that his expertise was in china, an area which is incredibly important right now, should have been of significance to the GOP.

    but huntsman didn't make a blip on the radar of the "base" because he cooperated with "the enemy" by working as obama's ambassador.

    p.s. there... you got a response. try to deal with it as if you actually want discussion.

    I wasn't actually surprised but that "line" was part of the article so I figured it would grab people's attention. Fair enough reply?

    I actually liked Huntsman so there is no reason to disagree with you.

    Some would say he was a RINO and the GOP seems to like RINOs...Romney and McCain.

    Huntsman had zero charisma. He had zero ideas. The best thing about him were his attractive and funny daughters. Maybe if they had run things would be different.
    Didnt we hear that McCain was the Republican that most Democrats would vote for before he got the nomination?

    Huntsman was the true conservative of the group, unburdened by soc con values nonsense.

    He would have beat Obama like drum if the message had been delivered well.

    Obama would have been slaughtered in the three debates.
