The only guy who can beat Obama

Huntsman is the only Republican in the race who has a better than 50% chance of beating Barack “health care mandate” Obama in the general election.

Drink all the Kool-aid all you want, this guy is the only one who is guaranteed to win!

This year’s GOP presidential primary looks like a Mad Magazine characature of “As the GOP Turns” or some other lame-ass soap opera.

First we had Michelle “I’m not that friggin’ crazy” Bachman, then it was Herman “999 = 9 girlfriends, 9 pay-offs, and 9 days in the basement wishing I’d never gotten in this race” Cain, to Ron “I really am that friggin crazy” Paul, to Mitt “I flipped, I flopped, and I have a greasy top and love Obama-care” Romney, to Newt “Frank Luntz lovin’, Pelosi huggin’, Clinton trashin’ but I’m a fat loser and a giant hypocrit ” Gingrich, to whatever his name is Rodney or Randall or Richard– who cares, whatever his name is he’s the wack-job dude who lost his senate election in PA and thinks abortion and stopping gays from being gay is all anyone cares about, to Rick “making G.W. Bush look like the Texas Einstein” Perry, voters aren’t all that inspired with what they know about the current field to say the least.

What they don’t know though is what could save the country in November. That is, the fact that Jon Huntsman remains the only candidate no one has yet paid any attention to. And he’s the lone guy who could beat Obama if GOP voters would just get over themselves (Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh, this includes both of  you, you big old hunks of lard).

Normally this wouldn’t be a bragging point, but in today’s 24 hours new cycle journalism, the last few minutes before the critical New Hampshire primary could be the defining moment in this campaign; so the fact that Huntsman isn’t on anyone’s radar isn’t that much of a concern — what happens in the next 7 days is what matters. The Huntsman surge.

I’m hoping it’s so.

Huntsman is the only Republican in the race who has a better than 50% chance of beating Barack “health care mandate” Obama in the general election.

And if you think Romney or Newt or Paul or Santorum are the choice, go ahead and vote for ’em. And get used to keep on saying “President Obama” for four more years.

Now put away your warped sense of what you think a good Republican is, and start thining about Jon Huntsman for President.

  1. He seems to be a descent candidate, but gets absolutely no traction. I’m starting to wonder is there’s something seriously wrong with the guy.


  2. Chris:

    All of what you say may be true, but Huntsman did himself in early by trashing the tea party and sucking up to the MSM. Alienating the most energized faction of the party is never a good idea. It would have been better to simply run on a reform platform – sooner or later he would have been elevated as the next “non-Romney”.
