what?!

This is a ‘teaser’ video from the Jon Huntsman campaign designed to make everyone very excited about his big announcement next week.

Person speedily riding a motorbike through attractive scenery.

“In 4 days.”

“Has seven children, one from India, one from China.”

What?

This is relevant because ……. ?

Bizarre.

    He’s cool – the political equivalent to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

      Not cool. What if those children become the target of all kinds of nasty jokes, on teevee, online, etc.? Will he then say “kids and familes are off limits!?”

      President Obama never began his presidential political campaign by advertising his children. Not cool.

        Yeah wasn’t it McCain who has an adopted daughter.. that the repubs had nooo qualms about attacking?

          And the Rethugs were nasty, VERY nasty, to her. I wouldn’t begin to repeat some of the horrible things they said or implied about her.

          Her name is Bridget McCain. She was born in Bangladesh and has beautiful dark brown skin. As a result of the nastiness, I understand she is very wary of having her picture taken.

        I think StR was being slightly sarcastic. No one in their right minds would support what is obviously child exploitation, hopefruit2. Hunstman is a greedy a-hole who will probably do more harm than good to himself with this nasty backstabbing shit he’s currently endeavoring in. He’ll get what’s coming to him soon enough, that’s the absolute guarantee of the Repug party. They will make you pay one way or another.

      Just because he has adopted a couple of children doesn’t mean he will be a good President. Far from it.

        Indeed – I’m sure even crazy Bachmann has a few foster kids she could parade around, as well, if they are going to start using their kids as pawns for the sake of gaining power. If this is how he wants to begin his campaign, by using his kids, then it’s already not looking too good for Huntsman. Plus, what’s with the bike riding in the desert – is that supposed to make him exciting? He’s disloyal and has already sold out his principles, his church and his kids. That’s all that matters. What’s next- skydiving?

          She has 23 foster children she has helped to raise. I guess Huntsman is trying to complete with the loon. Who would place children with that lunatic.

        Precisely! This clearly supports the point many have made about Huntsman adopting kids from particular countries specifically for business purposes and now exploiting those same adopted kids for political purposes!

        The man is so transparently base and a weasel! No finesse, no decency! All phony and bad acting too!

    ROFLMAO!!! Already exploiting his adopted kids for politican gain eh jon?

    Oris it just another Obama wannabe trying to make his “family life” seem cool – of course with Obama’s family in mind… Reminds me of Bobby Jindal talking about his immigrant father coming from a distant land…

    Nothin says weird/odd/strange like a republican running for the office of President ~

    There are so many things to say about this little snippet of an ad.. seriously of all the things to put in an ad to announce your candidacy for President, why this?? one can almost see the acceptability of mentioning he has 7 children- amongst the myriad of things one might mention about why he is QUALIFIED to become President.. but how does one make acceptable the mentioning of that fact ONLY and the additional odd info that two of his children are from other countries?? Is this an appeal to Immigrants? An appeal to the non-white Americans?? Or is he hoping for China and India to take part in our election.. okay thats snark 😉 EFFING weirdness personified- he’s gonna fit right in with his fellow runners just dandy.

    • June 17, 2011 at 12:15 pm

      Also, broadcasting that he has 7 children no doubt gives comfort to his ‘anti-choice’ coalition folks.. maybe this is how he competes with Michelle Bachmann’s “I gave birth to 5 children”.. but whats he got to compete with her “and raised 23 Foster children”. Heh, you lose Huntsman 🙂 You repubs are a hoot. Have some babies, run for POTUS… say your prayers 😉

      Exactly! But more importantly, those where the markets his family business had been trying to break into! This is so in your face exploitation and dehumanizing of these kids and their countries! He even commercially filmed the whole adoption home coming in anticipation of using it as a political clip! This so base and distasteful!

      He is such a coward too, will miss the next republican gathering of presidential wannabe’s because he has a “cold”! Lol!

    Or how to wreck a beautiful serene landscape with a loud, pollutin’ , track leavin’ dirt bike?

    And how, actually, DO you have 7 children in 4 days?

    Wow, I guess I’ll have to give more money to OFA and volunteer tomorrow to do some voter registrations…

    HE’S TRYING TO GATHER THE PEOPLE OF ALL RACES FOR HIS VOTES….HE’S LOOKING FOR THE COMPASSIONATE VOTE….THE SAME MOVE THAT MICHELLE BACHMANN MADE BY ANNOUNCING THAT SHE RAISED 22 FOSTER CHILDREN.

    IN OTHER WORDS…HE IS TRYING TO LET EVERYONE KNOW HE IS NOT JUST A WHITE CANDIDATE.

    I BELIEVE HE IS ALSO A MORMON WHICH WILL GIVE HIM THE SAME PROBLEM WITH VOTES AS MITTENS…HE WILL ALSO HAVE TO EXPLAIN WHY HE IS RUNNING AGAINST OUR PRESIDENT HAVING WORKED FOR ‘SAID’ ADMINISTRATION. I DON’T WORRY ABOUT ANY OF THE ‘SO FAR’ ANNOUNCED CANDIDATES ON THE GOP ROSTER.

  10. June 17, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    And it’s not even Huntsman on the bike. Heard that on Morning Joke. So what does that say about being authentic? What a phony.

    I didn’t watch this pile o’ poo, but from what i see of the still photo it says loosely :7 kids, one Indian, One Chinese. Seriously? WTF? isn’t that child exploitation? Who the F does he think that shit is going to matter to? Does he think he’s gonna get the Chinese and Indian votes? What a F-ing shithead. Why are these a-holes so slimy and disgusting? Seriously, I’m more and more convinced that unless the Repugs completely brainwash the entire American populace, PBO will be re-elected in 2012. Idiots. 😡 🙄

    I have two daughters from China. I think most adoptive parents would really find this offensive that he’s singling out two of his seven as adopted instead of just part of the family as much as his birth children. Adoptive parents (most of us anyway) really, really resent any implication that we’re “saving” children. When he points out he’s got two internationally adopted children, he’s saying, “Hey, look at the great guy I am!”

      Spot on JOAnn!!! This just goes to show that these Huntsman adoptions were not from the heart but done as a ploy and to exploit the various self-serving benefits attached to adoptions!!! Sick, sick, sick!!!

      America’s Creepiest Campaign Videos. First Romney telling the unemployed that he’s unemployed too. Then Hunstman singling out his internationally adopted children to announce his campaign for Presidency.

    This is the type of behavior with some people in that group who gives the word American “UGLY”. I think it is a very tateless person who would do such. I would not even consider such a person for my president. These people are completely out of their minds. What a shame.
