The case for Jon Huntsman

Ragionamento convincente, ma improbabile, di Steve Goldberg, consulente conservatore pro Huntsman. Sul blog di Ben Smith prova a fare il ragionamento di Obama sui suoi possibili avversari:

«At this point it looks as if Romney will get the nomination by default. He’ll be fun to compete against. He will be practical, safe, and armed with every cliché in the book. He projects confidence and is good looking like me but he has no core beliefs. He will go from pro-life to pro-choice, pro-choice to pro-life. Pro second amendment to anti second amendment and so on. His pitch is "I want to be President so badly, what do I have to say and do to win? Ok, let’s say and do whatever gets me there.” He is just a cheap imitation of me. He can say whatever he wants but the American people will buy my soaring rhetoric before buying his warmed over continuation of the Bush economy.

Last man standing? Jon Huntsman. This guy is the unknown wild card in the deck. Staunchly substantive and the real deal. I was smart when I appointed him ambassador to China. It’s a good thing for Plouffe that he didn’t say we were worried about Huntsman otherwise I would have taken him to the woodshed. I can’t let Huntsman get any traction with his middle of America message because I won’t be able to beat him. He ran a great government in Utah by cutting taxes and spending. Obviously that would be the right message for the country. He also has incredible foreign policy experience which is why I appointed him to China. One of the ways out of this mess is going to be through business opportunities generated on a multinational basis and Huntsman understands international trade better than I do and in fact, he has business experience from a successful family business».
