Jon Huntsman Slams GOP: Reagan Would ‘Likely Not’ Be Able To Win Today
Made popular 393 days ago in
Former Republican candidate Jon Huntsman took a battle axe to his own party, comparing it to China's Communist Party and criticizing its standard bearer in a wide-ranging interview at the 92nd Street Y Sunday night.
Recounting his first experience on the presidential debate stage in Iowa last August, Huntsman says he was struck by the question "Is this the best we could do?"
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.
"This is what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script," he said.
Huntsman said he regrets his decision to oppose a 10-to-1 spending cuts to tax increase deal to cut the deficit at the Iowa debate lamenting: “if you can only do certain things over again in life.”
"What went through my head was if I veer at all from my pledge not to raise any taxes…then I’m going to have to do a lot of explaining," he explained. "What was going through my mind was 'don't I just want to get through this?'"

Would Reagan be able to win the GOP nomination today?
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

Sour grapes from a career politician who could not generate any traction outside the far left of the Republican party. Who cares what Huntsman has to say? He's another McCain type RINO.
