The GOP race for the presidency is undoubtedly troubling for most Americans. This is because from their various debates, slogans, quotes, and platforms, the GOP is generally showing Americans an excess in division (or disunion), inter-fighting, intolerance, and proclivity for divisiveness. All of which, during these dire economic times, are hardly the qualities that most Americans want or need in a president.
The only exception in this circus is Jon Huntsman, Jr. Today, when thinking about the possibility of Huntsman withdrawing from the race for the presidency, it dawned on me that he is really the only viable GOP candidate.
When considering the field of GOP forerunners, who really should Republican voters choose? It defies commonsense to select a forerunner who demonstrates a tendency to foster division, inter-fighting, intolerance and divisiveness. This inevitably presents the only viable choice of Huntsman.
This is because it is his experience that really sets him apart from the division, inter-fighting, intolerance, and divisiveness of the other GOP forerunners. America, as a whole, needs neither business managers nor “Ron Pauls”. It is critical to understand that Huntsman, unlike the other GOP forerunners, brings to the table invaluable experience in international diplomacy (or international relations), international economic relations and, more importantly, good relations with the People’s Republic of China. If you do not understand the importance of these qualifications, then you slept through the past ten (10) years.
Given these reasons, for America, as a whole, Jon Huntsman, Jr., is the only viable GOP candidate for the office of president.
