Huntsman ‘Love Letter’ to Obama Speaks Volumes

Because I suspect a lot of conservatives are, like me, somewhat unfamiliar with Jon Huntsman, I decided to share a few tidbits about the former Utah governor who recently resigned from his post as U.S. Ambassador to China to run for president as a Republican.

For starters, I share a copy of a “love letter” (above) Huntsman sent to President Barack Obama Aug. 16, 2009.  In my mind, it speaks volumes.

Now that you’ve had a chance to digest the content of Huntsman’s letter, I’ll share links to a few news articles I suspect will help conservatives cast a more-informed primary vote:

Governor acquires unlikely ally (Arnold Schwarzenegger) in regional global warming fight (May 20, 2007);

Obama Praises Jon Huntsman, Jokes About Possible 2012 Rivalry (Jan. 19, 2011);

Axelrod: Huntsman was ‘Effusive’ About President (Jan. 20, 2011);

Reid Chooses Huntsman Over Mitt Romney (June 21, 2011);

Frank Luntz to Hannity: Jon Huntsman will ‘rub conservatives the wrong way’ (June 21, 2011);

?Huntsman Finishes Opening Day with Big Money Haul (June 21, 2011); and

  1. Thank you. I don’t believe Huntsman is any type of candidate for the GOP. I believe his “bipartisanship” would look more like capitulation and complicity. On top of that, ANY politician who still takes “man made global climate change” seriously, let alone wants to give it any level of priority in policy-making, needs a swift boot in the rear to send him on his way.

  2. Hey Dave, I agree on climate change (it’s the sun stupid). But, I’ve been thinking. Capitalism is based on growth. As the third world levels it’s rain forests and builds factories to grow their respective economies, can you picture one or two hundred years down the road? If every nation on the planet is pumping co2 into the air, how can it not eventually change the climate?
