Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman raised some eyebrows in his reaction to the news Sen. John McCain is backing Mitt Romney in New Hampshire today:  “Nobody cares,” according to MSNBC’s First Read.

“I have great regard for Sen. McCain. I love the man. But it’s another example of establishment piling on,” Huntsman told reporters at Globe Incorporated, a first-responder fire suit manufacturer today.

“It seems the more establishment piles on, Dole, McCain, all the rest, nobody cares. Nobody cares about this. I mean, none of the endorsements that Romney picked up have been a thing in terms of how people respond, because the people are looking for a new generation of leadership. They’re looking for a new approach to problem solving in this country. You can get all the Doles and McCains in the world as Romney probably will, but in the end, nobody cares.” Source: First Read

Wow, that was a mouthful, don’t you think? Um, here is why people should care about Sen. McCain’s endorsement:

a) He won New Hampshire twice, so clearly people there like him;

b) Jon Huntsman has been a bottom tier candidate all through the campaign (even though I believe he’s the most conservative and most qualified among the other candidates).

Has Jon Huntsman already thrown in the towel on his presidential aspirations or is he just arrogantly dismissive of his political adversaries as a general rule? Either way, John McCain’s endorsement of Mitt Romney is a good one and already seals the deal of him being an establishment candidate, though it’s clear he has major weaknesses. Yes, Jon Huntsman, somebody cares!

    Janet.

    I think that Huntsman is going to be a bigger problem than he seems right now. He’s low in the rankings but I suspect that he’s laying back in the cut and waiting to open things up in a big way against the current herd of hopefuls.
