The last thing a Dem wants is an ever more social-right republican in the white house than Bush W

    We have to accpet that the reason most people self-identify as liberal is because of the GOP stance on all civil rights issues. The more libertarian leaning republican that join the republican team, the more people will identify themselves as Republican-Libertarian.



    About as much of a connection there is a connection between Reagan and Obama



    The Dream Act states that if you are an illegal that has been in the country since the age of 13, go to college and do well, or join the military and honor your obligation, you get moved to the front of the line for citizenship. How is that a horrible mess?.
    Reid endorses him because Huntsman is a liberal and the family connection

    What too does it matter that Governor Huntsman nominated Harry Reid's son to be on the Board of Regents at the University of Utah? Do you have even a shred of evidence that Huntsman did this as a form of political patronage or is it just another one of your claims that you pulled out of thin air?

    Count me in as a liberal that would gladly vote for Huntsman were he to win the Republican nomination, though from the looks of this thread the fringe elements will ensure that that choice will not be possible.
    So you think his family has no influence on him? You think he never calls his dad for advice? Nominating a liberals son when you are a GOP is a sure sign you have no connection to the liberal HAHAHAHAHA

    Hmmm do you think Palin's husband has any influence on Sarah Palin?

    Remember he wants Alaska to secede from the Union.

    I don't see that happening and don't see it as an issue.

    Translation: Liberals are evil and Sarah Palin is the second coming.

    One person paid for their extra spending through growth of the private sector, one person paid for their extra spending through taxing a company. However, we're to understand that the first one is a "moderate who leans left" and the other is someone whose a conservative.
    Don't forget that Alaska is one of the most subsidized states in the Union. Without massive federal spending, Alaska would be far worse off. It would be interesting to extract the impact of federal dollars upon Alaska's economy to see just how much growth actually occurred under Palin via the private sector.

    No, I will give the benefit of the doubt to Governor Huntsman that he possesses a thought process capable of making decisions on his own without the outside interference of anyone else. His family may have influenced him, but I have yet to see any evidence that he has to use his family members as a crutch because he is incapable of making decisions on his own. If you do have any evidence, then by all means share it. I doubt you have a single thing, though.

    Also, I never said that there was not a connection between Huntsman and Reid. All I was asking for was evidence that Huntsman selected Reid's son for reasons beside merit, but again you have nothing to prove the claim you are accusing Huntsman of. That seems to be a running theme with your posts.
