What America Needs NOW
Heh. Consider this an open thread.
John Weaver really needs a new playbook. In 1999-2000, newspaper headlines were filled with the titilating details of how “Democrats Fear a McCain Nomination.” In fact, one CNN report in early February of 2000, noted Democrats were worried because “conservative Democrats and Independents are voting for John McCain because they believe that he is the perfect person to replace Bill Clinton in the White House.” | Read More »
Jon Huntsman went to Florida and denied gearing up to run for President while serving as United States Ambassador to China. “There was no gearing up for a campaign, whatsoever,” Huntsman said, explaining that the campaign structure had been put together without his input. That defies credibility. In May of 2009, Jon Huntsman retained McCain strategist John Weaver to advise him on running for President. | Read More »
In the past 48 hours, I have received a lot of criticism for my takedown of Jon Huntsman. Some of it was not surprising, i.e. when you want to see the traitor Jonathan Pollard freed instead of hanged, you can’t be expected to understand arguments about loyalty and honor. Some of it was surprising. The most interesting aspect of it all is that the older | Read More »
Some of you think I am too old fashioned in my post on Jon Huntsman. Silly me thinking a United States Ambassador should be loyal to a fault to the President of the United States he serves, regardless of party or person. For those of you who are not concerned with the loyalty of an American Ambassador to his country and President, consider this break | Read More »
Tonight on the Erick Erickson Show, I’ll play audio from the Media Research Center Gala from Saturday night and get into the details of why patriots should not support Jon Huntsman for President of the United States. You can listen live at http://wsbradio.com and call in at 1-800-WSB-TALK. Consider this an open thread.
“I cannot tolerate a man serving as our ambassador to our chief strategic adversary in the world plotting, while in that capacity, to run against the President of the United States.” Ambassador Jon Huntsman is gearing up now to run for President of the United States. If he is the Republican nominee, I will vote for him. But until that moment I will never, ever | Read More »
Someone just put this on YouTube: I guess they are going to try to make the case that I was for Huntsman before I was against him. Actually no, both prior to and after that I dismissed him as a candidate, but I stand by the statement. Foreign policy is going to be a huge issue and by virtue of being an ambassador, Huntsman will | Read More »
It is stunning that Jon Huntsman is going to run against Barack Obama when, in responding to me, his campaign behaves exactly as someone close to Obama, or at least close to the left, would. They cite Media Matters and, in the process, defend Obamacare. Not kidding. Someone close to Huntsman tells Ben Smith Ironic that someone who suggested sending President Obama to the death | Read More »
