Just as they threw their considerable weight behind Rick Santorum last week in a successful bid to prevent Ron Paul from finishing in the top two in Iowa, the establishment media has now turned to former Obama administration official Jon Huntsman in a desperate move to block Paul from winning the “anyone-but-Romney’ crown in New Hampshire.

you know.. why not let the replublicans win with a ticket as follows
PRES: RON PAUL
VICE PRES: ROMNEY
Huntsman is about as conservative as Karl Marx. He’s a vehement climate change believer, a firm ally of Harry Reid, has strongly opposed the Tea Party movement and to top it all off, he’s a former Obama administration official. How this man can be framed as a legitimate alternative to Ron Paul anywhere outside of the Twilight Zone of the establishment media is beyond a joke.
Described as “Barack Obama’s secret weapon” by some conservatives, Huntsman is likely to drop out of the GOP race, run as an Independent and take enough votes away from whoever turns out to be the Republican candidate in order to ensure Obama’s re-election.

Why are you all acting like Huntsman is a bad guy?
Name me one thing with proof that's sooo bad about him? you can't!!!! He's got a perfect record. He's even saner than your Guy Ron Paul. If Huntsman wins second place in New Hampshire it's because some Conspiracy Theorists stayed in their basements and trolled the internet through the primary.
Go Huntsman! He's got this, and with the surge quite possibly the nomination.
Why do you think the MSM all but refuse to talk about Ron Paul? He's a nut only worshiped on conspiracy sites like this. Whenever the Media does talk about him, that's what they say. Only reason he wins in all online polls is because the Paulbots spam them. Then they go on and spam other profiles of the Presidential candidates on Facebook and other social networks. Telling people to wake up and vote Ron Paul. Seriously? Let people make up there own minds. Everything isn't against Ron Paul. This is why half of you are crazy.
You phrased that sentence by insisting all of us are Ron paul supporters.

So an article on Infowars which equates to a post on here makes you so sure that Huntsman is unelectable? Think about it. How did Santorum surge? Media, picking him up. Now it's Huntsman's turn although the only reason why Ron Paul supporters are afraid of Huntsman is because he really is a contender for the nomination. Better than Ron Paul. Better than Obama.
Jon Meade Huntsman, Jr. (born March 26, 1960) is an American politician, businessman, and diplomat who served as the 16th Governor of Utah. He also served in the administrations of four United States presidents and is a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
Huntsman worked as a White House staff assistant for Ronald Reagan, and he was appointed by George H.W. Bush as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce and later as United States Ambassador to Singapore from 1992–1993. Huntsman served as Deputy United States Trade Representative under George W. Bush, launching global trade negotiations in Doha, Qatar in 2001 and guiding the accession of China and Taiwan into the World Trade Organization.
Huntsman has also served as CEO of his family's Huntsman Corporation and was elected Governor of Utah in April, 2004 and won re-election in 2008 with nearly 78% of the vote. While governor, he also served as chairman of the Western Governors Association and as a member of the Executive Committee of the National Governors Association. On August 11, 2009, he resigned as governor to accept an appointment by Barack Obama as the United States Ambassador to the People's Republic of China. He submitted his resignation as ambassador on January 31, 2011, in order to explore a presidential campaign.
