Dede Scozzafava Jon Huntsman rides again

Let’s make it clear, Jon Hunts­man is not run­ning for the Repub­li­can nom­i­na­tion for pres­i­dent. He is run­ning for a per­ma­nent place as the “goto for­mer GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date” on every MSM show dur­ing the gen­eral elec­tion and beyond.

I didn’t get into my house from Blog­con Char­lotte until after 7 p.m. so I didn’t hear about this story from Buz­zfeed until this morn­ing:

For­mer Repub­li­can can­di­date Jon Hunts­man took a bat­tle axe to his own party, com­par­ing it to China’s Com­mu­nist Party and crit­i­ciz­ing it’s stan­dard bearer in a wide-​ranging inter­view at the 92nd Street Y Sun­day night.

Stacy McCain who was not at blog­con but is undoubt­edly prepar­ing for my pro­posed From Reporter to Blog­ger ses­sion for next year did see it and promptly posted this:

One might call Jon Hunts­man a “use­ful idiot,” but this would imme­di­ately prompt the ques­tion, “What actual use did he serve?” He never had any “path to the nom­i­na­tion,” and his faux cam­paign existed only to gar­ner glow­ing cov­er­age from the lib­eral media, to hog up time in tele­vised debates, and to enrich the ruth­less cam­paign con­sul­tants who some­how man­aged to con­vince him he had a chance.

So here we are in April, three months after he endorsed Rom­ney and pleaded for “party unity,” and Chumps­man is pub­licly trash­ing the GOP? Once more we must ask: “What the f – k was that all about?”

Stacy Stacy Stacy, what it was all about is what it was always all about for the MSMhav­ing a per­son with the title “For­mer GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date” before his name avail­able to trash the GOP on cable tele­vi­sion. He is to be what Dede Scoz­zafava was meant to be for the MSM if she won in NY:

The moment Dede votes with Pelosi that bill becomes “bi-​partisan” by def­i­n­i­tion. The fact that it is only one repub­li­can will make no dif­fer­ence, the MSM will trum­pet it as “bi-​partisan”. When ABC­CB­SNBC­C­N­N­M­SNBC­BET wants to talk to a repub­li­can on an issue SHE will be the one they call. She will become the face of the repub­li­can party that will be pushed and lion­ized. She will be the rea­son why “con­ser­v­a­tives need to back off”.

The real­ity of all of these things will not mat­ter, the media will push them as if it was true

That is and has from the start been why the Jon Hunts­man can­di­dacy took place. The MSM pushed (tricked?) him into the race, and lion­ized him for hit­ting his party (par­tic­u­larly social con­ser­v­a­tives) they pro­moted him at every turn and included him in debates when he didn’t even meet their own cri­te­ria. Despite a “I’m a con­ser­v­a­tive” ad blitz the peo­ple who actu­ally voted for him in NHwere Obama vot­ers It was no acci­dent that after his 3rd place in NH he ran to the left for fundrais­ing.

That alone would seem to be a rea­son not to have him at a GOP fundraiser but there was a spe­cific break­ing point as Buz­zfeed reports:

Hunts­man, the for­mer Utah gov­er­nor and once Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s Ambas­sador to China, expressed dis­ap­point­ment that the Repub­li­can Party dis­in­vited him from a Florida fundraiser in March after he pub­licly called for a third party.

And that prompted his “GOP=China” response.

Morn­ing Joe pumped his line in the 6 p.m. hour and in the 8 p.m. hour and had Hunts­man on live to be sure that no mat­ter what hour you tuned into the show, you would get the full “Jon Hunts­man hits the GOP” expe­ri­ence or as I put it: The GOP would be a great party if it wasn’t for all those damn republicans…

I’m an advo­cate of open pri­maries I think we have to do away with these exclu­sion­ary con­ven­tions and caucuses

Visit msnbc​.com for break­ing news, world news, and news about the economy

You know our national elec­tions would be a lot less exclu­sion­ary if we let all for­eign­ers liv­ing abroad vote too, for that mat­ter MSNBC lineup would be more inclu­sive if they allowed the gen­eral pub­lic by vote to decide who gets a show and who doesn’t.

What Jon Hunts­man for­gets that the GOP was formed as an anti-​slavery party, if you choose to join the GOP in 1856 you under­stood this was the case. Today the party stands for things, lower taxes, smaller gov­ern­ment it also strongly opposes abor­tion. A party is not just a club remem­ber the words of Grover Cleve­land:

What’s the use of being elected or re-​elected if you don’t stand for something?

If your only pri­or­ity is power then it’s a dif­fer­ent story. So as long as Hunts­man is hit­ting the GOP he serves the pur­pose of the left and have a MSM plat­form avail­able to him.

That’s what is going on, noth­ing more or less.

Let’s make it clear, Jon Huntsman is not running for the Republican nomination for president. He is running for a permanent place as the “goto former GOP presidential candidate” on every MSM show during the general election and beyond.

I didn’t get into my house from Blogcon Charlotte until after 7 p.m. so I didn’t hear about this story from Buzzfeed until this morning:

Former Republican candidate Jon Huntsman took a battle axe to his own party, comparing it to China’s Communist Party and criticizing it’s standard bearer in a wide-ranging interview at the 92nd Street Y Sunday night.

Stacy McCain who was not at blogcon but is undoubtedly preparing for my proposed From Reporter to Blogger session for next year did see it and promptly posted this:

One might call Jon Huntsman a “useful idiot,” but this would immediately prompt the question, “What actual use did he serve?” He never had any “path to the nomination,” and his faux campaign existed only to garner glowing coverage from the liberal media, to hog up time in televised debates, and to enrich the ruthless campaign consultants who somehow managed to convince him he had a chance.

So here we are in April, three months after he endorsed Romney and pleaded for “party unity,” and Chumpsman is publicly trashing the GOP? Once more we must ask: “What the f–k was that all about?”

Stacy Stacy Stacy, what it was all about is what it was always all about for the MSM:   having a person with the title “Former GOP presidential candidate” before his name available to trash the GOP on cable television. He is to be what Dede Scozzafava was meant to be for the MSM if she won in NY:

The moment Dede votes with Pelosi that bill becomes “bi-partisan” by definition. The fact that it is only one republican will make no difference, the MSM will trumpet it as “bi-partisan”. When ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCBET wants to talk to a republican on an issue SHE will be the one they call. She will become the face of the republican party that will be pushed and lionized. She will be the reason why “conservatives need to back off”.

The reality of all of these things will not matter, the media will push them as if it was true

That is and has from the start been why the Jon Huntsman candidacy took place. The MSM pushed (tricked?) him into the race, and lionized him for hitting his party (particularly social conservatives) they promoted him at every turn and included him in debates when he didn’t even meet their own criteria. Despite a “I’m a conservative” ad blitz the people who actually voted for him in NHwere Obama voters It was no accident that after his 3rd place in NH he ran to the left for fundraising.

That alone would seem to be a reason not to have him at a GOP fundraiser but there was a specific breaking point as Buzzfeed reports:

Huntsman, the former Utah governor and once President Barack Obama’s Ambassador to China, expressed disappointment that the Republican Party disinvited him from a Florida fundraiser in March after he publicly called for a third party.

And that prompted his “GOP=China” response.

Morning Joe pumped his line in the 6 p.m. hour and in the 8 p.m. hour and had Huntsman on live to be sure that no matter what hour you tuned into the show, you would get the full “Jon Huntsman hits the GOP” experience or as I put it: The GOP would be a great party if it wasn’t for all those damn republicans…

I’m an advocate of open primaries I think we have to do away with these exclusionary conventions and caucuses

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

You know our national elections would be a lot less exclusionary if we let all foreigners living abroad vote too, for that matter MSNBC lineup would be more inclusive if they allowed the general public by vote to decide who gets a show and who doesn’t.

What Jon Huntsman forgets that the GOP was formed as an anti-slavery party, if you choose to join the GOP in 1856 you understood this was the case. Today the party stands for things, lower taxes, smaller government it also strongly opposes abortion. A party is not just a club remember the words of Grover Cleveland:

What’s the use of being elected or re-elected if you don’t stand for something?

If your only priority is power then it’s a different story. So as long as Huntsman is hitting the GOP he serves the purpose of the left and have a MSM platform available to him.

That’s what is going on, nothing more or less.
