David Axelrod says Jon Huntsman dropping out of GOP presidential race because he wouldn’t sell his soul. Axelrod says, “He was simply unwillingly to make the Faustian bargains with the Right that Romney has so willingly made,” Buzzfeed reports.
Jon Huntsman’s withdrawal may be a good thing for the Democrats because he appealed to moderate Republicans who don’t necessarily like Mitt Romney. I don’t know if that’s necessarily true because Mitt Romney isn’t an ultra conservative. He is more moderate, though he is masquerading as a conservative. Neither Jon Huntsman nor Mitt Romney appeal to the Tea Party.
Um, one problem David Axelrod, Jon Huntsman doesn’t want his supporters to rally behind President Barack Obama. He wants them to go with Mitt Romney, who he said, is the “candidate best equipped to defeat Barack Obama” despite his differences with Romney.
