Jon Huntsman says Mitt Romney would be 'status quo president'

Jon Huntsman speaks at a town hall meeting in Manchester, N.H., on Wednesday.
January 04, 2012|By Michael A. Memoli
Reporting from Manchester, N.H. —

Jon Huntsman branded Mitt Romney as the choice of the party establishment in an appeal to independent-minded New Hampshire voters Wednesday.

"You're going to have a choice this election cycle. The establishment is going to tee up Mitt Romney and they’re going to say there’s your guy," Huntsman said at a town hall meeting at Manchester's public service utility. "But you know what? This nation can’t afford a status quo president."

Hours after Romney appeared elsewhere in Manchester with 2008 GOP nominee and two-time New Hampshire primary winner John McCain, Huntsman said his rival's support from dozens of Washington lawmakers showed he was not the candidate of change.

"You got 47 or 50 members of Congress behind you, supporting you. You think you’re going to be able to do what needs to be done with respect to term limits and closing the revolving door and tackling trust? No way, no how," he said.

Borrowing a page from McCain's 2008 playbook, Huntsman until this week had New Hampshire largely to himself while the other Republican candidates battled it out in Iowa. Not anymore. Still, the former Utah governor was careful to note the weeks he's spent in the state while others split time.

"There's no more important event than the New Hampshire primary," he said. "You all get to go out and change the course of our nation’s history by a vote. I say do votes matter? Look at Iowa. Eight votes. It’s real. Take your vote and invest it wisely."

Huntsman was joined by former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, who downplayed Romney's narrow victory in Tuesday's Iowa caucuses. ...

Wow

they just took it down...

Still there

Next

Will be Rick Perry, unless God tells him to stay in to make a fool out of himself more than he already has.

Huntsman must've realized he needs his CN Ambassadorial job back

Next up, his photo-op with Obama (begging his old job back)...

Awwwwwww... seeya!

Awwwwwww... seeya!

good he won't be

stealing Ron's point at the debate 不要讓門打你的屁股

Someone stated earlier that Huntsman and Romney were

cousins. Is that true? If so, makes sense that he would endorse Romney.

Two Weeks Ago Huntsman Told ABC: Does Not Trust Romney

Does Jon Huntsman Trust Mitt Romney? The Answer Says It All. Three Times.
By John Berman Jan 3, 2012 6:44pm

...In an interview with ABC News, Huntsman refused to say that Mitt Romney is a person he trusts. He balked at the question, not once, not twice, but three times.

Do you trust him? Dodge number one: “I think he’s a good man. I think he’s been on three sides of every major issue of the day. And because of that it’s going to be very tough in the end … to be able to make that trust argument to the American people.”

But do you trust him? Dodge number two: “Do I like him? Do I admire him? Of course. On the issues that he flip flopped on … that’s where he’s going to have a press problem. Because he said one thing but then has found himself on the other side of those issues.”

So no answer on, Do you trust him? Dodge number three: “I’m saying the American people, the voters, are going to have a hard time finding, I think, a gut level trust when it comes to someone who has been on so many sides of major issues.” ...

Huntsman to Drop Out of GOP Race; Will Endorse Romney
By Michael Falcone Jan 15, 2012 9:35pm

Jon Huntsman will drop out of the Republican presidential race on Monday, a campaign spokesman told ABC News.

A source close to the Huntsman campaign said the former ambassador to China and Utah governor was “proud of the race that he ran” but “did not want to stand in the way” of rival Mitt Romney, the current front-runner for the Republican nomination.

Huntsman plans to endorse Romney at an 11 a.m. press conference Monday in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

[snip]

While Huntsman will be throwing his support to Romney on Monday, it was only a week ago that he told ABC’s John Berman just the opposite.

When asked if he trusts Governor Romney, Huntsman replied, “He has not put forth reason to give us a reason for us to trust him.”

Earlier this month, he told another ABC reporter that Romney is “completely out of touch.” And as recently as Saturday, Huntsman was questioning Romney’s electability.

Reporters asked Huntsman if any of the Republican establishment had reached out to him and asked him to tone down his criticism of Romney and his work with Bain Capital.

Huntsman explained: “Nope. And listen. I have said what I have said. My problem is really a political issue. And that is, when you have a candidate that talks about enjoyment in firing people, talks about pink-slips, who makes a comment that seem to be so detached from the problems that Americans are facing today, that makes you pretty much unelectable. And I say, we want a nominee who can actually go on to win. That’s the issue … the bigger issue is one of electability.”

It makes sense for him to drop out, his job was done,

Thanks for the video link.

It makes sense for him to drop out, his job was done, his job was to pull votes away from Ron Paul in New Hampshire and Iowa. He is Mitt Romney's cousin, of course he is going to endorse him. Now he is useless to the cause of Romney's election campaign and is going home.

I said it before, i feel for people who fell for this political farce. I hope they wake up and see that Ron Paul is the reason all these people are running, to stop Ron Paul so the same old establishment can rule.

Lets face it, Romney played them for fools, are they gonna join him now, I doubt it. Welcome ex-huntsman supporters.

Ron Paul 2012!

And another one bites the dust!

And another one bites the dust!

My God's not dead; he's surely alive. And he's living on the inside roaring like a lion.
