The Boston Globe has decided Huntsman is their man! Here is a bit of what made them decide to back Jon-
And yet the chance for renewal remains. Sour economic data and dysfunction in Washington present major obstacles to Obama’s reelection. Whoever gets the Republican nomination could easily become president. Among the candidates, only two stand out as truly presidential, Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman. Both have track records of success, and both, through their policies and demeanors, have shown the breadth of spirit to lead the nation. But while Romney proceeds cautiously, strategically, trying to appease enough constituencies to get himself the nomination, Huntsman has been bold. Rather than merely sketch out policies, he articulates goals and ideals. The priorities he would set for the country, from leading the world in renewable energy to retooling education and immigration policies to help American high-tech industries, are far-sighted. He has stood up far more forcefully than Romney against those in his party who reject evolution and the science behind global warming.
With a strong record as governor of Utah and US ambassador to China, arguably the most important overseas diplomatic post, Huntsman’s credentials match those of anyone in the field. He would be the best candidate to seize this moment in GOP history, and the best-prepared to be president.
May I say I agree? Look, I’m a Democrat! I don’t want the GOP candidate to lose! I think Obama has done a fine job, but I don’t think he was strong enough to accomplish what he promised he’d do. I’m not faulting the guy- he wanted to start the 21st century out right with no party bickering…but he needed way too much support to pull that off. He didn’t get that support and I’m worried that must have left a bad taste in his mouth. I don’t really want to vote for him again!
I want someone who will stand up for America! I want to wave my flag and tie bunting to my house! I want to be smart about tax dollars! I want a clean future for my children’s children. I want a lot…I know it, but I’ll be happy if the GOP chooses Huntsman! I’ll be so happy I’ll vote Republican!
