On his first day back on the trail since Christmas, former Utah governor Jon Huntsman stepped far beyond the boundaries of his usually polite stump speech to repeatedly slam Ron Paul as "unelectable" because of "out there" views on foreign policy.

He's right in terms of a general election.
Face it, Paul can maybe pull out a primary win or two. That's easier to accomplish when the voters are all conservatives. But a general election? When the only way to win is to somehow appease the far right AND appeal to the center? Sorry, but the average American voter isn't going to pull the lever for Paul.
We're talking about an electorate who voted for Bush TWICE.
I'm not knocking Paul here. Just being realistic.

All of these Ron Paul posts will disappear when Ron Paul drops out of the race half way through the primaries and he will complain about something being corrupt the supporters will listen. A few posts will remain on here for a week or two and then will get buried just like the Elenin threads except there will be a fury of threads popping up spouting out exactly whatever excuse Ron Paul claimed happened to him during the election. No conspiracy here, it's just reality. Ron Paul can't win. But it is funny to see the MSM decide weather he is an actual candidate or not
I agree with Huntsman and for those bashing Huntsman, he could be the Dark Horse the majority of the country besides for New Hampshire hasn't seen yet. Rick Santorum? I like the guy, but he really needs to do the Joel Osteen thing and get out of politics!
