Huntsman: Romney's a 'perfectly lubricated weathervane'

    Too bad this guy is not getting the attention he deserves.....he is the only republican candidate that would stand a chance against Obama. Sad sad state of our political system.....chances are I will not be voting.

    So now Huntsman is taking his cues from the leftist organization PFAW and Michael Keegan. They are well known for their hit pieces aimed at Republicans and just posted this same angle along with some other thin accusations at the Huffington Post this morning. "But Romney's ease at shifting also makes him a perfect weathervane for measuring the audiences he is trying to appeal to." At least now we know which team Huntsman is really playing for if we didn't already.

    Huntsman is the best of the Republican andidates. But he needs a new realistic Campaign Manager who rockets out Huntsman's distinctive abilities, abilities the other candidates don't have. Huntsman isn't displaying and telling America it needs to renew itself to live and survive in a new world.

    I am getting tired of the rep candidates all attacking Romney...especially Perry. He is soooo vicious and nasty about it. At first I kinda thought "well if he should win the primary maybe I could vote for him" not now, under any circumstances. He is too negative, too nasty, too vicious, too divisive. No, if it comes down to Perry I'll not vote for president for the first time in my life.
