    I am not sure if there is an abundance, but they certainly let that noisy whacko group control their focus.

    IMO, the whole plan for Obama picking him to be China's ambassador to get rid of him was overblown. The GOP has moved too far to the right for Huntsman to have had a chance. If Huntsman was running in 2000, that would have been different, even 2008. But 2012? Political landscape has changed too much for someone like him to have a place in the GOP.

    I would have loved to see him as the candidate in 2012. I would have loved to see the Obama camp try to discredit Huntsman.

    "But, ummm, Mr Obama... didn't you pick him to represent you in China? How can he be so bad if you picked him yourself for such an important post?"
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    That's why the Obama camp was afraid. So they put him in their own camp so the GOP would tear him apart if he ran. However, that's not what doomed Huntsman. Huntsman was simply too moderate, too rational and too stiff to have any chance.

    I agree with your assessment of what doomed him 100%.

    Yes, it's very preliminary, and a lot can happen between now and then, but if you had to venture a guess, what do you think of Jon Huntsman's chances for gaining the Republican nomination for President in 2016? Do you think he made enough of a name for himself to be honestly considered by enough people next time?
    Sadly Huntsman has no chance.........I think there is only one person out there who can beat Hillary and that is Dr Ben Carson.

    slim to none. he's even less known now. He also has a reputation of being a RINO. He does have some cute daughters though

    I hope and pray that the GOP continues to follow your line of reasoning....in all honesty.
