Here is the John Huntsman campaign in a nutshell:
"I think there is a serious problem, the minute the Republican Party becomes ... the anti-science party, we have a huge problem," Huntsman said. "We lose a whole lot of people, who would otherwise allow us to win the election in 2012 when we take a position that isn't willing to embrace evolution ... that runs counter to what 100 to 900 climate scientists have said, [runs counter to] what the national academy of science has said."
So says a candidate who is supposed to be running for President in the Republican Party during a time of unrelenting unemployment, endless government over-spending, borrowing, and printing of dollars any sane person knows can never be repaid.
I think perhaps Mr. Huntsman is angling for another gig, try MSNBC host or CNN analyst of anything anti-Republican, in the guise of being a Republican.
Where are all the former Democrat candidates for President? John Edwards is in deep unreported criminal trouble, Gore has lost his marbles, Howard Dean and John Kerry are not taken seriously by anyone any longer.
I think Huntsman will, after this pose as a presidential candidate, wind up a talking head like Republican Pat Buchanan who is making a good living taking pot shots at his party, many deserved, on a cable channel.
Republican Joe Scarborough has a soft seat in front of the cameras feigning outrage at Republicans every chance he gets in exchange for an envelope on Friday. Who would look to Joe Scarborough for any thoughtful comment on politics if it wasn’t otherwise?
Republican John Huntsman has a target in his sights and it isn’t the office of the president. It is a perch on a roost with the other RINOs who history is leaving in the dust.
