    He was also too nice and neither brash nor loud enough.

    We'll agree on that, and we'll likely disagree on why.

    Mitt Romney Offers Rick Perry $10,000 Bet: ABC News/Yahoo News Republican Debate - YouTube

    A man characterized by his own party as silver spoon elitist and vulture capitalist offers his opponent a bet, in an amount so large it would constitute somewhere between 25% and 50% of most Americans yearly income. That's acting like a clown.


    Santorum supports racial profiling; Paul shocked - YouTube

    And here's Santorum promoting the idea of persecution of religion. That's acting like a clown.
    OK the bet was clownish, but I think in context with the war on terrorism where our stated enemy is al quaeda, it's not clownish to profile foreign Muslims entering the country. It's clownish to not consider that al queada members are most likely to be Muslim.

    first you need to specify what type of conservative are you talking about. a fiscal conservative? a social conservative? a constitution conservative?

    So nearly 66 million people suckle on the public teat. Care to cite your sources? Oh, and make sure your source only includes Obama voters. Thanks.

    But it is clownish to suggest we should be racially profiling due to religion or appearance, because a relatively small minority do evil. I think Ron Paul's immediate response to Santorum's comment, where he mentioned Timothy McVeigh, illustrated that.

    I believe that job would actually fall to you, since you were the one alleging anyone I'd consider voting for could not be a conservative.

    I have nothing in particular against Mr. Huntsman. As long as you are neither a socialist ("progressive", "liberal-in-the-American-sense", whatever) or a "social conservative" (pretty much the same thing, they just operate with different cultural symbols), I am perfectly willing to give you a sporting chance. But...what exactly does Huntsman have that, say, Chris Christie lacks?

    Re: Huntsman 2016?

    Its horribly sad how many Republicans/Conservatives are so deeply attached to their bitterness and hatred that they allow themselves to be so easily manipulated and blindly led by Liberals and the Media to ignorantly and foolishly base their views of a person not on his record or his views but on what liberals/the media says about him, making comments about how he must be a 'RINO" if someone like that says a good word about him. Ignorant, foolish, pathetic, and weak willed.

    The fact that a few liberals, themselves horribly ignorant, suggest favor for a man who...

    signed and helped support consumer focused market driven health care reform, who had a good 2nd amendment record as governor and drew positive comments from the NRA, who helped to institute a flat tax and passed historic tax cuts in his state, who took the stance Sean Hannity continually parroted in 2007 of "Secure the Border first" with regards to immigration on the federal level, who reduced state spending as a percent of GDP, who helped raise his state to top 3 in the nation for starting a business through business friendly legislation, and who is a pro-life...

    and that magically makes individuals on the right so lacking the desire to actually use their brain and make an actual reasoned decision go "OMG!!!! RINO!!!!"

    Santorum and Bachman were the worst...? Too much religion in their politics...

    A lot of foreign policy experience. Strong support for the 2nd Amendment. He's less of a social conservative.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Apparently you blacked out for all of 2012....because while Anagram is a big fan, I'd dare say I'm still the longest tenure and loudest huntsman evangelist here.
