Video: Huntsman boldly vows to carry on for some reason

posted at 10:23 pm on January 10, 2012 by Allahpundit

He held 170 public events and still finished a distant third behind Ron Paul, whom no one — including Ron Paul — thinks is going to be the nominee. And yet he soldiers on, promising to give voters an electable option even though New Hampshirites have already crowned Romney the electable option in the field. I wonder what the real reason is. Maybe it’s simple pride, the feeling that he simply can’t quit after one disappointing outing after having worked so hard for so long? (See also Perry, Rick.) Or maybe it’s institutional inertia, i.e. the campaign’s already spent money and put people in place in South Carolina so, hey, why not keep going? Or maybe he simply wants to play spoiler and try to take some moderate votes away from Romney before he’s 100 percent inevitable. Can’t say I find any of those reasons compelling, but it’s his dime.

Perry’s gotten all the grief these past few months for running a terrible campaign but don’t overlook this guy when making your list of the most dismal disappointments in recent Republican history. He had foreign policy experience and a decent record as governor — better than Romney’s, at least — and he offered some bold policy proposals on the trail this year, including backing Paul Ryan’s budget. And yet, whether due to his own poor instincts or horrible advice from John Weaver et al., he inexplicably decided to play identity politics games with the base. He should have finished second tonight, or even first, but he gambled that he could somehow eclipse Romney among moderate Republicans and then poach enough conservatives to win the sort of races Romney’s now winning against a split right-wing field. Why he thought he could do that when Mitt had outraised and outorganized him, I have no idea. Could be that he figured he’d have no chance against the next crop of Republicans like Jindal and Rubio and Christie and Ryan and therefore had to roll the dice now no matter how long the odds are against him. Regardless, he should have been smarter and done better. Too bad.

How tone deaf can Huntsman be to have his slogan as “Country First”? It is like his campaign is try to recycle the McCain 08 campaign.

I disagree. Perry had the nomination in the bag if he’d merely been competent at the debates. Whereas Huntsman was always polling in the low single digits. Perry flat out blew it, so he ran a far worse campaign IMO.

Ultimately Huntsman never had a shot for one simple reason: he worked in the Obama Administration. Not only is he guilty by association, but there’s no way in hell the conservative base could ever get excited about the guy given that blemish on his resume.

Doughboy on January 10, 2012 at 10:28 PM

He’s just miffed that he quit his China ambassadorship only to get 17% in NH.

Honestly an excellent postmortem. He was actually my hope for a somewhat conservative candidate, but stick a fork in him. He’s done.

The Political Entertainment Industry is in a full panic now. The Primary is over and they don’t know what to do. So now we are going to see the media propping up guys like Huntsman trying desperately to keep things interesting.

It’s going to be a looooooooooooooong summer.

He is the least likeable guy in the field…well, until 2 days ago when Santorum, Gingrich, and Perry went marxist. Now they are all tied.

Heh. You got it done alright, Jim. One year of your life that you will never get back, for 15% of the votes of New Hampshire. Beaten 2-1 by Romney, who beat you in Iowa by infinity. Beaten by Ron Paul, like a drum.

Go get ‘em, sport. Let’s see if you can beat 3% in South Carolina.

Jaibones on January 10, 2012 at 10:34 PM

He pretends to be liberal or moderate but is really conservative.

He really understands our media, kids.

IlikedAUH2O on January 10, 2012 at 10:34 PM

I am not at all stunned by the results. It happened pretty much exactly as I assumed it would ,especially the top three.

Huntsman will bow out after Florida – if not following South Carolina.

Megan McCain is going to be out of a job soon as a useful idiot for the Democrats. Unlike Megan, Huntsman actually has a resume. I bet he is on MSNBC in time for their fall coverage. Megan will probably follow Olberman to Current TV.

JB-STLMO on January 10, 2012 at 10:37 PM

Shut up, Huntsman haters!

Look at what’s left; two radical leftists called “Newt” and “Perry,” a pseudo-statist in Santorum, and a flip-flopping, opportunistic, chameleon-like, untrustworthy thing named “Mitt.”

And then there’s Ron Paul.

God, we’re screwed.

ROMNEY IS BEATING HUNTSMAN IN UTAH

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700214005/Huntsman-backer-called-traitor-as-Romney-rivalry-splits-Utah.html

… divide among Utah Republicans over the two candidates who also have shared backgrounds: both are Mormons, businessmen and former governors. In interviews, Utah Republicans regularly refer to them interchangeably as “favorite sons.”
… Yet it’s Romney, who grew up in Michigan and was governor of Massachusetts, who has the edge over Huntsman, who spent much of his life in Utah.
Romney is leading in polls, has more local endorsements, and raised more money in the state than Huntsman.
Romney reported $1.9 million in contributions from Utah residents through Sept. 30, the most recent figures available — about seven times as much as Huntsman, who took in $255,850, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington- based research group.
“It puts a lot of us in a precarious position,” said U.S. House Representative Jason Chaffetz, who ran Huntsman’s first campaign for governor in 2004 and served as his chief of staff.
“It’s not that I’m anti-Huntsman, but I am very pro-Mitt Romney,” added Chaffetz, who has campaigned with Romney in New Hampshire.

HMMM…

ROMNEY LEADS IN THE POLLS IN UTAH – WHERE THEY KNOW HUNTSMAN BEST.

AN HE’S OUT-FUNDRAISING HUNTSMAN AND HAS MORE ENDORSEMENTS.

IMHO: HUNTSMAN IS A FRAUD. A MANDARIN-SPEAKING PHONY.

FOLKS WHO VOTE HUNTSMAN ARE DUPES.

Valiant on January 10, 2012 at 10:39 PM

Huntsman spent a whole lot of time in New Hampshire, and he had two things going against him – the machines of Romney and Paul.

But this is Huntsman’s singular shot, and that he could not do in New Hampshire what Santorum pulled in Iowa says just how little Mr. Huntsman is regarded, even after putting all of that ground work in.

Perhaps he needs to reassess his persona. If Santorum, Gingrich and you (Huntsman) all come off as jerks to various people, yet you get the least traction, maybe you’ve got the least cushion to fall back on after you slather around your smarmy attitude.

Corn anyone?

Vote Huntsman – The Less Macho Romney

TugboatPhil on January 10, 2012 at 10:44 PM

I, Ban Ki-moon Huntsman, vow to remain in this race as long as my father Foghorn L. Huntsman, mocks my chances with that silent smirk. That damned silent smirk that says his son never made anything as cool as the styrofoam clam shells that Big Macs used to come in.

That smirk across the table, my father has, even at dinner when he asks me to pass the Gray Poupon to disgust me by slathering it all over his squab. I’ll show him by going down in spectacular yellow flames in this Quixotic run at the Presidency! Him and that terrible smirk…

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on January 10, 2012 at 10:45 PM

What was that Chinese saying offered by Huntsman again? Better to be in the land of the rising sun than…a venture capitalist whose dragon has come home to roost, or something…I don’t know. Anyway, I’m sure it was meaningful in its own sort of esoteric way.

Anyway, well done Romney: Thanks for focusing on the real problem in your victory speech. Keep the focus there: Obama, the leftists and their brother-”journalists” are the only issues in the 2012 election. They are the collective problem more severe than any other America faces.

How about he wants to give voters in the lower-priority states a choice?

I feel sorry for those states who never get to hold primaries until the race is already decided. (And Texas winds up in that boat often.) Maybe a rotating schedule should be implemented… Iowa & NH can still be first, but after that the states take turns being first in a series of “Super Tuesdays” (one per month, not one Tuesday after the other).

I, for one, fully support Huntsman staying in the race– as long as it means much more camera time for his adorable wife and insanely hot daughters.

I still remain baffled by solid, competent governors like Hunstman and Perry are twisting in the wind, but a cranky failed Senator like Santorum is even in the race at all.

Never underestimate how media coverage can shape a race. The news stories tomorrow will all focus on the top three — giving Huntsman a lot of attention for low-info voters. Not inconceivable that we see his numbers tick upwards in South Carolina and Florida as a result.

Laura in Maryland on January 10, 2012 at 10:55 PM

Yeah, but the A-listers didn’t run so it is what it is. I’m referring to Daniels, Jindal, Ryan, Christie, and Palin. Aside from Jindal and Ryan, who stated no interest from the beginning, the others gave it serious consideration and then declined for ‘family reasons’: Christie, Daniels, and Palin.

‘Family reasons’ cut no ice with me. As many posters on this site know from hard personal experience, service members on continual rotation are often separated from their families for sometimes over a year at a time, yet they continue to serve because they believe in and love their country. Compared to that, what’s a little hostile press attention?

That said, I don’t think we’re screwed. President Obama is now in complete thrall to the leftmost wing of the Democratic Party. As a result, he can only continue to do what he’s been doing, pandering to his uber-liberal base and pursuing policy solutions that are bound to fail, which means a stagnant economy well into November 2012, as well as an ineffectual foreign policy in the face of increasingly dangerous challenges.

I’d give GOP odds at 50% of winning the presidency and 90% or better for holding the House. Taking a Senate majority is a more iffy proposition. I’d say maybe 40%, but who knows?

We’ve got a shot.

Hummer53 on January 10, 2012 at 11:22 PM

Perry was a disappointment, because many of us had high expectations for him. Did anyone really have high expectations for Huntsman? He had tool written all over him before he even declared. Perry at least had an excuse for his horrific debate performances – back surgery and pain killers would have left Churchill grasping for an apt turn of phrase. What explained Huntsman’s epic flop? Every time the spotlight shone on him and he had a chance to shine, Huntsman turned into the last douche on the left: trite, flatulent, smug, condescending, trivial, prissy, cliched, and dull. If Perry is an alpha male castrated by circumstance, Huntsman is a beta who thinks testosterone shots will make his penis grow.

The whip-thin Huntsman still manages to appear softer and more shapeless than the portly but deadly Gingrich. The sleek Mitt Romney is a smiling shark. No matter what you think of him, Ron Paul is a man. Rick Santorum, although he has an unfortunate tendency to barely repressed anger and surliness, is a tough cookie. All of them, in some way, have strived to appear softer than they are. Huntsman, on the other hand, strives to be harder than he is. His conservatism is political man drag, and the voters can sense it.

I mean a Mandarin-speaking guy who was married forever (sometimes that’s how I felt with my first wife) and who would even consider riding 2,579 miles to New Hampshire on a dirt bike (@2:57) and prefers greasy spoons to linen table cloths wasn’t gonna make it.

Someone up there had it nailed when they predicted Sid Huntsman will be a color guy on MSNBC’s Tingler Show.

Count it!
