    Jon Huntsman Admitted He Was Representing Barack Obama

    One of the big excuses and counters to my argument that Jon Huntsman was disloyal to the President of the United States was that he wasn’t representing the President, but the United States.

    Silence of the Lambs

    Yesterday, I called on conservatives and conservative organizations to actually dare to retaliate against Republican members of Congress who refuse to cut, cap, and balance before raising the debt ceiling.
