Huntsmentum?

January 10th, 2012

Here’s Nate Silver on how Hunstman has the momentum, but may lack the time to capitalize on it.

I loved this exchange on Morning Joe. If you go to the last five minutes you can watch Harold Ford comparing Hunstman to a football player who looks great on paper, but just can’t keep up with the other players at the combine. Also, Joe Scarborough commenting on Huntsman unfathomable decision to reply in Chinese when challenged by Romney for being too soft on China…

Because there’s nothing that gets the Republican base as fired up as speaking Mandarin….

I almost fell out of my chair watching that one.

Mika Brezinski is quick to defend Huntsman, but Scarborough points out that “Ron Paul could explain the details of delivering a baby, but you don’t want him to so that on the stage…”

I have been impresssed by Huntsman at times, but he seems a bit too tepid for a Republican party that likes their tea hot and it’s hard to hard to see where Huntsman goes next if he clocks a 2nd place finish in New Hampshire. That being said, if his father continues to write checks,  he may have the ability to stick around for a little while.
