    Good morning everyone. this is Just lovely. Remember, you can’t fool kids and dogs. POTUS rocks!

    Now see, my mother is far left, but she watched morning Joe and said that if I were a republican I would like huntsman?
    All this beltway media love fest has results, you know?

    • June 22, 2011 at 9:15 am

      because people don’t know his real record. We have to get the truth abt him out there. They let him sit there and lie saying he didn’t know the people who set up his campaign. This sleazebag broke the law.

      Don’t worry Jovie, Huntsman has the look, he doesn’t have the substance. America is used to spit and shine, not the making of the patina. In other words, bling bling. There is no one, and I mean not one solitary politician out there who has the personality of a Barack Obama. If all they are going on is surface, they are outdone before the gate opens.

      • June 22, 2011 at 12:26 pm

        Explain to me what kind of look does Huntsman have. I’m not trying to be racists or anything,but all I see is a white man, is that the look? I’m kind of puzzle when people say that all the time. Huntsman has the look.

          They say the same thing about Romney. I don’t understand it either, unless they mean “white” because other than skin color I don’t recall any presidents looking like viagra models.

            Anchor Baby Mitt, and Felon Huntsman both look personable, responsible, sane, and healthy. By that I mean the rest of the GOP field look fat & lazy, as if they were all Eric Cartmen as children, who grew up whining at their mothers to jump and fetch to their every whim. Were home-schooled, and lived in their parent’s basement most of their adults lives, playing video games/reading (their versions of) The Bible, eating Twinkies® and never having real contact with humans in person to actually develop so they have zero people skills, and BATSHIT CRAZY: i.e. Michelle Bachmann.

        • June 22, 2011 at 12:59 pm

          He looks safe. Clean shaven, soft spoken, and looks honest. I would buy a used car from him, that’s how honest he looks. To give another example, Stephen Colbert says he looks like a model/spokesman for Crest White Strips. Romney is the same way, except I wouldn’t buy anything from Romney. He looks too Ken barbie dollish but he looks safe and presidential. He also looks like one of those model on the packages of hair dye for men.

          • June 22, 2011 at 1:34 pm

            Well regardless what Huntsman look like he doesn’t impress me. This is not a beauty contest, we are choosing someone to be the leader of this great country who is going through some hard times right now. Plus there are problems all over the world, which can and does affect us as a country. Huntsman looks doesn’t mean a dam thing to me. And the media ought to be ashame of it self for making an issue out of this.As I said before he looks like a white man to me. I also say, remove the vail and let’s see what is behind there, let’s see if it’s just an empty shell.

            that means that compared to the rest of the Republicans in the running…he appears reasonable….not one of the crazies////

            He looks “safe”! You are kidding right?! The man looks creepy like someone with a lot to hide and trying really hard to look and act normal even in instances were there should be little or no effort!
            My local grocery store manager who also looks like a model for mens hair color products, is very soft spoken, looks smart and is clean shaven too, but has a history of serious anger and mental health issues which he has recently let slip! Should he also be pitching a run for president of the U.S?

          Tally and Gobrooklyn summed it up nicely. My take is that, they need someone who won’t scare the heck out of folk, hopefully with a cross over appeal. Let’s face it, Barack Obama is handsome, well-dressed, articulate, not only smart sounding, but damn smart, slim and has a delicious smile…..and his wife is a stunning clothes horse with a winning personality. In other words, we have the total package, so rethugs are vieing for a photo finish candidate. Just my 2 cents 😀

      Quality is not an act, it is a habit. ~ Aristotle

      Barack Obama: Quality, character, integrity, dignity and empathy built over the years through sheer hardwork, overcoming great adversity and good old American self-reliance…

      Jon Huntsman: Spoon-fed act born out of pretense which soon fades away…

      Tell your Mom that once she gets to know Huntsman she will realize there is no there there. And then she can give thanks she’s a Dem and not a Repub.

      He talks a good talk…he sounds good/better than the rest …a girlfriend of mine called me yesterday after Huntsman made his announcement and she held the same opinion as your mother, but I told her she would change her tune when his record is exposed…he has done his share of dirty deeds.

  3. June 22, 2011 at 9:04 am

    This is just too sweet.
    President Obama has amazing people skills
    He is has a calm spirit that is very soothing to people.

    Babies reaction is a good test—they don’t lie.

    Lovely video and diary, thank you.

    Almost a half a million views. Woo hoo.

    The presidents fundraising relies on us, the small donors:

    Michelle tells us to watch her journey overseas. I say, don’t worry, we are!

  7. June 22, 2011 at 9:42 am

    Did you guys hear that Newt had another Tiffany’s line of credit for up to $1m dollars? What a clown. Yeah, we’d want him in charge of the U.S. treasury.

      I think that there’s another shoe to drop here. Who needs two lines of credit at Tiffany’s? I bet there’s someone else who got jewelery too.

  8. June 22, 2011 at 9:50 am

    This is why we must donate, people. Big money donors are giving to Hunstman and so PUMAs! Remember Lynn Rothschild? She’s the Hillary supporter who got so mad that Hillary lost she voted for McCain. Well, she hosted this big fundraiser for Huntsman yesterday.

    We must donate people.

      How ridiculous. She hates Obama that much. There’s no way she’s a Dem.

    • 38 AnitaW
      June 22, 2011 at 10:06 am

      Sorry Rothschild isn’t a Dem. Everytime they want to trot out some big name donor they bring out this woman. She’s been pissed since Barack beat Hillary. With all this bitterness this woman carries around I’m surprised her husband can stand her.

      • 39 StR
        June 22, 2011 at 10:36 am

        She wanted to be invited to all the WH parties under a Hillary Presidency, and hasn’t been to one with Obama’s. Remember that article about the Washington socialites bitter because they’re not getting the invites – Lady Rotheschild is a posterchild for that sadsack group.

    I think the Baby Whisperer video got more hits than Huntsman’s presidential campaign announcement.

  11. 42 Ceb
    June 22, 2011 at 9:55 am

    PBO said in the GMA interview basically that the campaign could not really start until the repubs. Sorted themselves out. We do not know who he will run against so there is no need to be overly concerned at thiis point. We have a stellar president and candidate who is racking up success after success while the republicans are floundering and self-destructing . We should have faith in PBO and his team. Our faith should lead us to work and not worry.

    People, they will do this crap. They are going to do this crap. Right now, the beltway is trying to make this President Obama v. the Republican candidates. We all know, the old Nixon adage, “You don’t shoot down.” They are trying to make President Obama himself, shoot down. It shouldn’t in reality be that, because right now, its the Republican candidates v. the Republican candidates. In reality, that is what the latter is. There is no real meat in that story, because the platforms are the antithesis of what many people in the nation want, the candidates don’t have that magnetism that Barack Obama has with voters, even the ones that profess they hate him, and they are just dull. These guys have been wrong about 90% of the time. I allot 10%, because they at least have to tell that much to remain a news channel. In June of 2007, the beltway’s pick of a Democratic and Republican ticket was Clinton/Bayh and Giuliani/Romney. And the issue would be the Wars. Goes to show you that media narratives suck at predicting the future. Two, I absolutely LOVE the fact that the beltway press is going with this, “Obama has been terrible” schtick, yet they are trying to mold Republican candidates into a Barack Obama mold. That ought to tell you something about what they actually believe about Barack Obama.

    And why are we surprised that Mark Halperin thought Jon Huntsman was “charismatic and a great orator.” He’s been full of shit since he tried to blame McCain having several houses on Obama. Why would we take him any seriously now is beyond me. Right now, its a political silly season, where the beltway wrongly grades Republican”s presidential prospects on the incumbent instead on what Republicans themselves desire for a candidate. A carbon copy man who wants to be a Republican version of Barack Obama, who worked under Barack Obama is not it, no matter how hard the media tries to prop him up. They don’t want a mushy candidate, they want a blood warrior to, “TAKE DOWN BARACK OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!” Jon Huntsman, not that guy even if they try to pump him up as a motorcycle rebel. Right now, we need to get OUR voters engaged.

    • June 22, 2011 at 10:25 am

      Amen, GovChris! This is why our brilliant President refuses to engage any of these clowns. He’s so damn smart. They’re destroying themselves even as they try to come at him.

      Huntsman is sooooooooooooo creepy. And soooooooooooooooooo dull.

    • 51 Debz
      June 22, 2011 at 10:30 am

      You are correct, it is repug candidates vs repug candidates and the administration is well aware of this. PBO said he would not begin campaigning until next year as there is no reason for him to start now. The msm can push whatever candidate they want but that won’t matter until the caucuses and primaries start and the voters don’t necessarily agree with the media. Huntsman is certainly not the guy who will take down the President, he’s as exciting as a dead fish.

    The GOP used a republican consulting firm to put a poll in the field, in Florida. Guess what it said? Yup! Governor scotts approval rating magically went up in one month, 16 points to 45%! Lol! Lmao!!!

The guy is a walking train wreck, and I bet that they can’t make out the” campaign ” Rick Scott from the “Gov” Rick Scott. At least some of them have some integrity……They were decieved, just like the voters in FL

    • June 22, 2011 at 12:32 pm

  21. June 22, 2011 at 11:55 am

    My head is about to explode! Boner just said, he wants the president to not go so aggressively in pulling troops out of Afghanistan
    Then, he said he wants the president out of Libya.
    Then, he said he wants a residual force to remain in Iraq.

        It’s everything! It;s the sound of that child getting so angry it can’t cry properly, Barack recognizing that (tantrum) and reacting accordingly – having undoubtedly been there as a father, Michelle trying to hand said baby back, the parents then ON TOP OF EVERYTHING – and this takes cojoñes of steel – asking a photo-op, “Please Mr President, can I get a photo of you holding my Tantrum Daughter?” Obama, taking the girl – dressed so prettily – and she IMMEDIATELY is pacified.
