Jon Huntsman Attacks Sarah Palin For “Stringing People Along”

Former Governor Jon Huntsman attacked Sarah Palin today for “Stringing people along.” Huntsman said, “Everybody who has anything to do with politics knew she wasn’t going to get in the race.”
ABC News reported:

In an interview with ABC’s “The View,” presidential candidate Jon Huntsman rebuked former Gov. Sarah Palin for “stringing people along” as she decided whether to run for president.

“There’s too much drama and theater in politics,” Huntsman told the co-hosts in an appearance that was pre-empted for President Obama’s jobs plan speech. “I mean come on. You string people along. Everybody who has anything to do with politics knew she wasn’t going to get in the race. She has a profit proposition, she’s got a business. She makes money doing what she’s doing. Who on earth is going to leave that for the uncertainty of presidential politics?”

When asked if he believed her decision was made because she wanted to spend more time with her family, Huntsman answered, “Hey, my family is here. I get to spend time with my family.”

    Inappropriate and amateurish.

    and who is this john huntsman?

    sarah was my candidate, however, i respect her decision because of the viciousness the media is towards her personal family, it seems mostly about her children the media never mentions much about her hubby.

    Many are are not allowed to have the candidate we might want. We get a selection of the GOPelites and the Cross-over donks in June 2012-what is it called? Big Tuesday..A lot of us wanted a chance to vote for Gov Palin. But GOPers and the donks ran her into the ground, savagely.The GOP elite could have stopped that lawsuit harassment in Alaska…They have communications. they have a way.

    Huntsman answered, “Hey, my family is here. I get to spend time with my family.”
    So Mr Huntman, who is the mother of those who you call your biological kids ?
    Do you have pictures to prove it ?
    Oh another question Mr Huntsman, can you prove that you did not snort cocaine yesterday ?
    Mr Huntsman , why are you mad at us for fire-bombing your Church ?

    I wonder how many votes Huntsman is going to gain from this statement?

  • Hacker 69

    Let me get this straught. He attacks a non threat since she is not running.
    And by attacking her, he thinks her supporters will even give him a look?

    Do any of these idiots realize you get more with sugar than you do with piss and vinegar.

    What a laughable zero.

    Um, Palin just ADMITTED herself that she wasn’t running. So what the Honorable John Huntsman said was 100% verifiably true. Yes, Gateway Pundit likes being a shill for Palin, who he apparently still thinks is running, but some things are too transparently obvious to argue, such as the fact that Palin isn’t running after she just admitted to not running. Then again, Palin usually lies, so I can see why Gateway Pundit is distrustful of her.

    He attacks someone that WOULD have put him OUT more than he already is from contention instead of his for sure opponent currently occupying the seat in the White House, or even one of the other people that is going to PUT HIM OUT of any chance of contending.

    I wonder what imbecile he’s listening to, but glad he is. He was already a non factor. Now he’s given further proof as to why, he’s as out of touch at the guy currently occupying the seat in the White House.

    I think it would be fair and just if Huntsman had to be subjected to and go through what Palin and her family has.

    That dog won’t “hunt”.

    Go home, Jon. Your jealousy is showing.

    Jon “PLEASE NOTICE ME” Huntsman would be crying to the “ladies” of the view if she was running, he’d just cry a different tune. He does the same thing Huckabee does, although Huckabee is more Passive Aggressive about it.

  • obfuscatenot

    What a tough guy. Ain’t it interesting that Sarah Palin is a self made woman. Huntsman, made by his big daddy. Sucks when your bested by a gurl.

  • Gothguy

    @#10. Your argument might make sense if you spelled ‘Jon’ Huntsman name correctly, or better yet, if you substantiated your claim about Gov. Palin being a liar.

    In other words, to put it politely, kindly STFU.

  • listingstarboard

    Just like Palin, the MSM, the RINO establishment and the Democrats are on a scorched earth campaign against Rick Perry. Strangely there seems to be a lack of criticism against Romney.JJJ introuced a bill today agianst RIck Perry for “the Rock” The more they attack Perry, just like Palin , the more I like him. Come on Sarah, endorse someone so we can truly rally around them. Sarah is the litmus test for “the One”
