President Obama has elected Jon Huntsman, Jr. Ambassador to China.
Just some thoughts:
- First off, I’ll call “bullshit” right from the start for those who are thinking that it was somehow a “political” move to “eliminate” a viable GOP candidate for President from the pool.
The Far Religious Right of the GOP has made it clear that a Mormon will never, ever get their support and therefore would never get the GOP nod for President.
While Huntsman has the millions to spend (waste? in a futile cause?) that Romney has; I think Huntsman is pragmatic enough to realize that the “Huckabee Wing”, at this point, has the greatest influence on the Party.
- This man is pragmatic (like the Chinese); a businessman (yes…his Company is in China, but business and trade savvy is what the U.S. needs when dealing with China); is fluent in Mandarin Chinese; and is a problem solver.
Again…Utah’s Loss; America’s Gain…
