Huntsman is really the only republican that I consider reasonable and intelligent… we are still going to select Mormon Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee but Huntsman would be ok with me if he somehow got the nomination.

As long as it ain’t Newt, Perry or Bachmann (we already destroy Minstrelsy Herman Cain)… I’m happy.

Huntsman does not have any name recognition in many parts of the country. The "top tier" candidates are well known now thanks to the many debates that have been televised, as well as the intense scrutiny to which they have been subjected.. Lesser known candidates have also gained name recognition for their participation in the debates and the immediate press response to any errors or misstatements they might have made. Despite Huntsman's wealth, diplomatic experience and term as Utah's governor, he is not exactly a household name. Speaking only for myself, I see him as a colorless talking head, not unlike Romney, who has the benefit of great wealth but lacks charisma and appeal.

Religious affiliation is a non issue in this presidential race.

Mention any candidate's religion and it so easy to toss out Obama's 'religion','church' and 'reverend Wright', black liberation, "God Damn America", etc, etc, etc.

Yeah, bring up religion, we'll all have a full day of comments about Obama's 'beliefs'.

It's a definite weakness for Obama.

The media is neo-Marxist. Neo-Marxists could care LESS WHO get the WH, as long as he's neo-Marxist. So, they love all dems and repubs, EXCEPT Ron Paul.

Ron Paul is AMERICAN, and would have ZERO to do with any form of Marxism.

Therefore, our Marxist media does all possible to keep Ron OFF TV and off hard copy.

We are is deep crap, though. Marxism has been socially institutionalized, beginning around 1900 and really taking off around 1975. Once parents pass on Marxist ideology to their children, and once teachers teach Marxist philosophy, the going gets tough. Way tough.

OK with you? You have a personality disorder that requires removal of the impacted shit in your head. Fake Marine, using several other names at the same time to pose under and you even reply to your own comment, what a dork.

You keep using the word Marxist and Neo-Marxist, in the words of Indigo Montoya:

"You keep using that word, I don't think it means what you think it means."

It is pathetically amusing to read the desperate off-topic attacks by these right-wing tea-baggers as they look to alleviate the pain of knowing that no matter who gets the GOP nomination, President Obama will be easily re-elected for a second term.

The only one that could actually run and might win is Mr. Romney.
The faction of any one but Romney is a fickle lot. Keeps setting up these poor candidates and then knocks them down when bored.

Personally I would favor Jon Huntsman. He is to moderate in today republican/tea party mind set. Shows too much of the old school politics of being able to reach across the aisle. Lets face it the republicans are not going to even want the man on a ticket. Regardless of who eventfully get the nomination.

Huntsman is the strongest candidate in the Republican stable. A former governor, consistently conservative with none of Newt's or Mitt's flip flopping, with a strong grasp of the world in the 21st century. If Republican voters were smart enough to look at his record, they'd nominate him and have a candidate who would give the President a very tough battle.

President Obama is blessed with slow minded opposition...
