The guy is a quitter, just like Sarah Palin.
He's going to run a clean, above reproach campaign for awhile, build name recognition and respect, take the high road, build organization, contacts and his profile, then drop out to let Mitt take his shot.
John (as they spelled it on the press passes at his announcement) is doing this to pave the way for 2016, when Mitt & Tim are toast, and the assorted freaks of the fringe tea bag party are gone. It will put Jon in better position when the big boys come out to play in 2016 (Thune, Jeb, Daniels, etc..)
Did he really drop out of Paly?
Mitt & Tim and the assorted freaks of the fringe tea bag hunt him down,hurry!!!!!!
Does anyone get the campaign videos with the dirt bike?
I'm not (usually) so oblivious, but I don't get it. Like having the announcement at Reagans place, then not having the cameras capture his visage with Lady Liberty, only with a ferry behind his head.
(that's the boat, not the guy who flew USair in blue panties)
The libs' real concern:
"EJ Dionne: Web Link Here are the key questions about Jon Huntsman’s presidential candidacy: Is he the American version of David Cameron? And is the Republican Party ready for a Cameron moment?
What does a British prime minister have to do with the 2012 Republican primaries? If Huntsman is lucky, quite a lot. The British Conservative Party chose Cameron as its leader in 2005 because it was sick of losing elections and realized it could no longer present itself as an old, cranky, right-wing party. Cameron was Mr. Nice, Mr. Modern, Mr. Moderate and Mr. New. And now he’s in power."
The dude's electable.
Just not in the GOP.
FAR too far to the left for me. He is to the left of JFK, the President and party that brought me to be a Democrat, until they moved so far left I became a Republican while not changing my economic views one bit...and now am a conservative.
This guy is unelectable. We know who he is. He won't be the Repub nominee. Too bad I am broke, I would put money on it.
Two Mormans? They must be going nuts in Iowa.
Ehhhhh, more nuts, that is.
Nope: who's your preferred candidate? My prediction is that Obama wins over any of this field, agree that Huntsman is angling to keep his nose unbloodied for '16.
Obama legalizes same sex marrriage and pot after his 2nd inaugural.
Obama the libertarian.
That'd be a howl.
According to Wiki, he did drop out of Paly: Web Link.
Goes to show that Paly academic performance doesn't determine one's path in life. Wish we could all live by that, but it's not easy.
He attended high school in Salt Lake City, Utah. He did not attend Paly.
