You know that I loathe the former ambassador to Red China under the Dear Leader, President Obama, and current Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Jr.
Mitt Romney made the case about the fundamental problem with Mr. Huntsman on Saturday night in the so-called debate on ABC.
Mr. Romney made the point that while he was working to elect Republicans to blunt the ill-effects of the Dear Leader, President Obama, and his Democrats that controlled congress, Mr. Huntsman, Jr. was working for, well the Dear Leader, President Obama. Mr. Huntsman, Jr. had a weak response that he was putting his country first. He even used his two sons service in the navy to somehow justify his, well stupidity.
First, lets make something clear.
There is a difference when someone joins the armed forces of the United States. They are doing so to protect the United States. From all enemies, foreign and domestic. They are not political appointees.
Mr. Huntsman, Jr. was appointed by the Dear Leader, President Obama to be the ambassador to Red China. He had to be approved by the senate and was.
So there is a huge difference.
But here is something so, so John "F--- You" McCainish.
That Mr. Huntsman, Jr. is so much running against the Republican party that he is recycling the ever so-winning McCain slogan from the 2008 presidential campaign.
This is the best Team Huntsman can do?
Remember, a slew of McCainistas joined his campaign led by chief tool and dim bulb John Weaver. Mr. Weaver has tried to do two things. Help Democrats and his patron, Sen. "F--- You" McCain. Period.
Again, explain to us on the Republican side how this excites the base and gets people to vote for you? If there is not much difference between someone like Mr. Huntsman, Jr. and the Dear Leader, President Obama, will Republicans come out in masse to vote for a Jon Huntsman, Jr.?
I think not.
And it is true that Mr. Huntsman, Jr. is but one that can not be trusted.
Please, do not test our intelligence, Mr. Huntsman, Jr.
You claim to put "country first" and work for the Dear Leader, President Obama. Then suddenly, you resign and claim it had nothing to do with the worst kept secret. That you were going to run for president.
As noted in this post from Jim Geraghty at National Review's Campaign Spot, Mr. Huntsman, Jr's. official resignation took place on April 30, 2011. On May 3, 2011 Mr. Huntsman, Jr created a political action committee. The first step in declaring his candidacy for president.
What it reeks is that it shows a total lack of loyalty to the Dear Leader, President Obama. When has a presidential appointee from the other political party taken a job in an administration and in roughly two years resigned and decided to run for president?
Why should anyone be loyal to a, gulp, President Huntsman, Jr.?
See the fundamental problem.
I think that tomorrow night at this time, Mr. Huntsman, Jr. will have a disappointment. That will be the voters of New Hampshire saying thanks, but no thanks, to Jon Huntsman, Jr.
It will be great to see this tool slither off in the sunset!
