Huntsman Hits Romney Where It Hurts
Brutal and accurate. As Steve Benen notes, we may see much of this ad again, even if Governor Huntsman soon fades from the scene as expected.
To reiterate a point from last week, Romney seems to have two main flaws as a candidate. He’s a cowardly and uncontrollable flip-flopper with no core convictions, and he has an atrocious record on job creation. I’d argue that Huntsman is hitting Romney on both counts more effectively than anyone in either party.
If Democrats — Obama’s re-election team, the DNC, allied super PACs, etc. — are smart, they’re taking note at what Huntsman is up to. Huntsman almost certainly won’t be the Republican nominee, but his content should probably be used again in 2012.
It is such a wonderful attack, that one has to wonder if Huntsman entered the race at the behest of President Obama. Or perhaps, Huntsman, eying 2016, wants one of the other seven candidates to beat Romney so that Republicans will be ready for a moderate candidate the next time around.Click here for reuse options!
