Huntsman offically DNC's favorite Republican

Does any­one else remem­ber back in the days of NH where despite his unchal­lenged tal­ents as a father we con­cluded that Jon Huntsman’s by his appear­ances on Col­bert or on this Week:

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.

You will never go broke or lack face time on national tele­vi­sion as a mem­ber of the GOP will­ing to hit repub­li­cans in gen­eral and the right in par­tic­u­lar. Glenn Reynolds put it best:

Or Stacy McCain’s com­ments on him:

Hunts­man was always every liberal’s favorite GOP can­di­date — the folks on MSNBC loved him — and that was demon­strated con­clu­sively last week:

Accord­ing to exit polls, Hunts­man only won a hand­ful of demo­graph­ics in New Hamp­shire: Democ­rats, those who oppose the Tea Party, and vot­ers who are gen­er­ally sat­is­fied with the Obama administration.

Well much to the sur­prise of nobody expect per­haps Doug Mat­a­co­nis comes this news:

Accord­ing to very cred­i­ble sources, Hunts­man has accepted a speak­ing slot at the Demo­c­rat con­ven­tion in Char­lotte next month.

and appar­ently he isn’t going alone

If the infor­ma­tion is accu­rate, it does pro­vide a telling con­text for Jon Hunts­man Sr.‘s out-​of-​the-​blue attack today on Mitt Romney’s taxes and rumors that he is the “source” for Harry Reid’s wild alle­ga­tion over those taxes. And let’s not for­get that one of Huntsman’s daugh­ters recently announced that she would switch to the Demo­c­rat party.

I pre­sume if true he will be un-​endorsing Rom­ney and Endors­ing Obama.

It’s an amaz­ing sequence:

1. Cre­ate a faux repub­li­can as a can­di­date to try to pull Rom­ney left

2. Cre­ate a faux image of said can­di­date as cred­i­ble push him as a real con­tender in a state where democ­rats can vote in the GOP primary

3. Cre­ate a faux scan­dal con­cern­ing Mitt Romney’s taxes, taxes that the IRS has seen, taxes that nobody is calming.

4. Have said faux can­di­date con­demn Rom­ney over said scandal

5. Use said scan­dal to get speak­ing spot at the con­ven­tion that no demo­c­rat in a tough race wants to appear at.

And if the con isn’t enough to pull down Rom­ney then he can still be the goto “Repub­li­can” to cri­tique the new pres­i­dent for the next four years.

All that’s let is for him to reveal dark secrets of Mor­monism and the trans­for­ma­tion will be complete.

Last thought, if John Hunts­man is the best card the Obama cam­paign has, they’re worse off then I thought.

Update: Two Hunts­man daugh­ters are deny­ing the speak­ing busi­ness, it would be nicer if it was the man him­self, but I’ll take the ladies at their word. Are they also deny­ing the report that he’s call­ing for Mitt to release more tax returns too, say­ing Rom­ney:

won’t be fair with the Amer­i­can people,”

Just ask­ing.

Does anyone else remember back in the days of NH where despite his unchallenged talents as a father we concluded that Jon Huntsman’s by his appearances on Colbert or on this Week:

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.

You will never go broke or lack face time on national television as a member of the GOP willing to hit republicans in general and the right in particular. Glenn Reynolds put it best:

Or Stacy McCain’s comments on him:

Huntsman was always every liberal’s favorite GOP candidate — the folks on MSNBC loved him — and that was demonstrated conclusively last week:

According to exit polls, Huntsman only won a handful of demographics in New Hampshire: Democrats, those who oppose the Tea Party, and voters who are generally satisfied with the Obama administration.

Well much to the surprise of nobody expect perhaps Doug Mataconis comes this news:

According to very credible sources, Huntsman has accepted a speaking slot at the Democrat convention in Charlotte next month.

and apparently he isn’t going alone

If the information is accurate, it does provide a telling context for Jon Huntsman Sr.’s out-of-the-blue attack today on Mitt Romney’s taxes and rumors that he is the “source” for Harry Reid’s wild allegation over those taxes. And let’s not forget that one of Huntsman’s daughters recently announced that she would switch to the Democrat party.

I presume if true he will be un-endorsing Romney and Endorsing Obama.

It’s an amazing sequence:

1. Create a faux republican as a candidate to try to pull Romney left

2. Create a faux image of said candidate as credible push him as a real contender in a state where democrats can vote in the GOP primary

3. Create a faux scandal concerning Mitt Romney’s taxes, taxes that the IRS has seen, taxes that nobody is calming.

4. Have said faux candidate condemn Romney over said scandal

5. Use said scandal to get speaking spot at the convention that no democrat in a tough race wants to appear at.

And if the con isn’t enough to pull down Romney then he can still be the goto “Republican” to critique the new president for the next four years.

All that’s let is for him to reveal dark secrets of Mormonism and the transformation will be complete.

Update: Two Huntsman daughters are denying the speaking business, it would be nicer if it was the man himself, but I’ll take the ladies at their word. Are they also denying the report that he’s calling for Mitt to release more tax returns too, saying Romney:

“won’t be fair with the American people,”

Just asking.
