    Obviously, I'm on the puter. The TV is on in the living room, and I think I just heard that Huntsman is dropping out and backing Romney. Anyone know if I heard that right?

          I immediately hated him when his daughters came out with that "Manchurian Candidate" video and tried to make it look like Ron Paul was responsible.

          Then I bothered to listen to him at a debate, and he made so many economic mistakes it was embarrassing.

          I hope his followers find out that Ron Paul is the best alternative, but Huntsman just really wasn't all that he was cracked up to be.

        You guys don't like Santorum?

          Ew. No.

          Mr. Rick "I hate gays; want to bomb Iran; am not serious about cutting spending" Santorum?

          No. He's just a arrogant member of the status quo.

      Huntsman has done nothing but bad-mouth Romney for the past few weeks, and now he's endorsing him.

      ... birds of a feather...

      The REAL news is that Conservative Senator Tom Davis endorsed Ron Paul

      "It's easy to campaign on lower taxes, less spending and fewer regulations -- it's another thing entirely to stand up for these limited government principles when the entire Washington establishment is aligned against you. Yet for more than three decades Ron Paul has cast thousands of lonely votes in our nation's capital based on the constitutional principles that this country was founded on -- and that the Republican Party has promised to protect. Yet while generations of politicians -- including far too many Republicans -- were losing their way or caving to the status quo, Ron Paul was standing as a Tea Party of one against a towering wave of red ink.

      "2012 marks the fifth consecutive year in which the federal government is going to spend well over $1 trillion in money it doesn't have. Each and every American taxpayer is now on the hook for $135,000 worth of federal debt -- and last year's debt deal adds another $7 trillion in deficit spending over the coming decade. Meanwhile the U.S. Senate hasn't passed a budget in nearly 1,000 days.

      "I'm endorsing Ron Paul because enough is enough. Despite this wave of unprecedented government spending, our unemployment rate has remained above 8 percent for the last 34 months and 146.4 million Americans -- one out of every two people in this country -- are now classified as poor or low-income.

      "Government activism and government intervention clearly hasn't fixed our economy -- which is why the Republican Party needs a nominee who isn't wedded to that failed approach. We won't chart a path to fiscal solvency or victory in November by running toward the failed ideas of the left -- we will achieve those victories by returning to the principles that the Republican Party once stood for.

      "That is why I am proud to endorse Ron Paul for president.

      "Ron Paul's record matches his rhetoric, his fiscal plan matches the fiscal challenges that our nation is facing and his movement represents the taxpayers whose interests have been ignored in the political process for far too long.

      "I'm also endorsing him because unlike what the pundits have led you to believe, he is the candidate who gives the Republican Party the best chance to beat Barack Obama in November.

      "We have a choice: We can keep electing candidates who talk about change only during political campaigns as a way to get elected, or we can finally elect a candidate who will walk the walk and make that change a reality -- restoring our bottom line, our individual liberties and our national pride in the process."

    If you're one of those who is devastated by Huntsman's decision, I recommend you look in to Ron Paul:

    Huntsman claims that Romney is "More man" then any of the other candidates

      Evan G Rogersposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I dunno, I think that single handedly taking on both the media mogul empire, the US warfare empire, AND the Federal Welfare empire WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY having over 30 years worth of consistency is about as manly as a man can get.

      How can Romney compete with this:

      Ron Paul's a pimp!

      (They don't show it in this video, but this video shows what prostitution would look like if legalized: the girls get regular STD check ups, they can refuse -without question- any customer, their pimp doesn't beat them, and the clients are required to - no matter what - wear protection.)

        That ad would work well if only Ron Paul didn't look like a dentist.

          Not a dentist, an OB/GYN

    What does this all mean for the US? Does it mean that Obama may win again?

      Obama can only win if the R's give up on Ron Paul.

    I'm fairly turned-off by politics in general right now so don't much care if he dropped out or not.

    Jon huntsman did not say he was "quitting," nor did he say he was "dropping out."  What he said was that he is "suspending" his campaign.  Presumably that means he anticipates some role at the Republican Convention.

      Evan G Rogersposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      How is "suspending" much different than quitting?
