He’s the only Republican Presidential candidate that isn’t either fat and angry, robotic, or just plain idiotic. Which is why, I guess, that voters in Republican primaries didn’t select him. They apparently prefer fat and angry, robotic, and stupid.
I say he should have been the nominee because he’s smart, sensible, and competent and none of those things are true of the rest of the ‘pack’. For instance, his remarks on Romney’s attitude towards China are right on the money-
Former presidential candidate Jon Huntsman said Mitt Romney’s policy toward China was “wrongheaded,” adding that Republican candidates should not pander when deciding how to deal with China diplomatically and through trade. “Let’s just say that it’s not unusual for candidates to be saying certain things about China,” Huntsman said on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. “I’ve seen a lot of candidates who later became president, who use a lot of rhetoric. It’s much easier to talk about China in terms of the fear factor than the opportunity factor.” Huntsman attacked Romney’s op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal, which lambasted the Obama administration’s policy in China. Huntsman, who endorsed Romney after dropping out of the presidential race last month, served as the U.S. ambassador to China under President Obama.
Are Republican voters genetically predisposed to choosing the worst candidates? I miss you Jon Huntsman. I really do. I could have voted for you and probably would have.
