Surely it will be the nail in Romney’s campaign run. I can’t see any thinking American opting to take a such a risky chance with a guy that could really end America’s reign as the great country that it is. I think he’s toast now.

All the while balancing the budget and expanding revenue even with the tax cuts because for growth and created the most business friendly environment and top state for job creation.

Unfortunately for Huntsman, biggest obstacle in the Republican Nomination is that he sounds moderate even through he is more conservative that most of the other candidates, which consequently would be his biggest strength in a general Election.

This is after his 3rd place finish in New Hampshire.

Harry Reid for reelection.

Huntsman running for the Republican Nomination is actually funnier then Colbert running.

He gets to the truth more than any politician or journalist.

And bears would be outlawed! Bears!
