All you need to know about Jon Huntsman

Topics: Political News and commentaries

Michelle Malkin has a column today that dissects what she aptly calls "the media-manufactured candidacy" of Jon Huntsman:

While liberal reporters swoon, New Hampshire voters gave him thumbs down as he tried to gin up support yesterday. Here's his pathetic explanation for calling Obama a "remarkable" leader. And via Allahpundit, check out the insipid, condescending Huntsman ad touting his "good," "calm" demeanor. As opposed to the rest of us bad, angry conservatives who need to pipe down and get with the Obama/kumbaya program.

I mention the April 2009 Utah Tea Party in my column below in which Huntsman was booed for his support of the massive stimulus. Watch it again and refresh your memories. These are the folks who know Huntsman best:

Read the whole piece, appropriately titled "Jon Huntsman: McCain on Wheels."

Over at The American Spectator, Wlady Pleszczynski has a short piece that points to several links that note numerous good reasons for conservatives to take a little bit less than a nanosecond to consider Huntsman as a viable GOP candidate for 2012:

Whom the gods would destroy they first make a famous GOP presidential hopeful: that pretty much sums up media reviews of Jon Huntsman's coming out yesterday. "Is Jon Huntsman the Next Wesley Clark?" the New Republic asks. "We can say this for Huntsman: He's in better shape than Schwarzenegger or Crist," David Weigel writes (in what is a very fine report). "Jon Huntsman's Road to Oblivion" is the headline over Dana Milbank's mocking treatment. Sometimes you wonder why they even bother.
Meanwhile, even though Huntsman is indeed nothing more than a "McCain on wheels" ... that didn't stop him from raising $1.2 million on the opening day of his campaign. Whoever the donors are, they apparently haven't got enough street savvy to know this guy may make a great candidate in the general, but he'll never, ever, ever, make it through the primary!
