    Unfortunately, Gingrich is. That's why Huntsman has no shot while Gingrich does.

    Will Rogers said he never met a man he didn't like, I did, they're called conservatives.

    •  Huntsman is a typical Republican (0+ / 0-)

      He would fit right in with Ronald Reagan, John McCain and GWB. Because he happens to have one or two progessive-sounding views on a couple issues does not a progressive make him.  The current group of Republican Clowns makes Huntsman seem more "reasonable" but put him in a debate with Barack Obama and his glaring Republicannness will be on full display.

      •  And what's wrong with that? (0+ / 0-)

        Don't be fooled by the media that Huntsman is a crypto-liberal. And there's nothing wrong with that. Republicans are Republican for a reason. He still has to pay lip service to the unswerving minarchism and militarism of the GOP. But he has some moderate tendencies, and that should be cheered on. I'm not saying you should vote for him, but moderation is still a good sign to see in the opposition.
